lost 2-1 to croatia... no shame in that.

Were 1-0 up and a tired bale missed a good chance, simply tiredness meant we gave the croats too much time second half. We were never gonna qualify anyway, I think it was decent though I still have reservations on coleman... I mean this quali went up the swan with the first few games... can only imagine what may have happened if speed was still around or if his assistant had taken off... anyway, we're lacking in quality so it's harsh to blame chris for it...

On the plus side, looks like we have a class youngster coming through called "Jonathan Williams" (19 year old Palace player) - anyway, I was very disappointed a while back, not so much now, Bellamy will go soon unfortunately, on the plus side some youngsters are coming through, and Bale could get even better, so, who knows, we might sneak into Euro 2016 or something!

Still annoying to concede a goal in the 87th minute. :/ Why did Ramsey not play?

yeah a bit, I think coleman should've gone conservative tbh but I can see why he didn't as many fans would've complained...

Suspended, got a red in the last game because he "took one for the team" v scotland...

Oh well, it gave Williams a chance, I think he ramsey and someone like vaughan or ledley would make a good trio moving forward, with Bale, Robson-Kanu (who's improved a lot) or Collison and Bellamy would make a good 3 ahead of them.

Why the fuck Jazz Richards (swansea backup) came on I've no idea

@hdcantona

Ramsey is a terrible penalty taker. When will he learn.
maybe he's thinking if at first you don't succeed....

I'd just give 'em to someone else though.


Anyway while I'm in here, I know it's bad to say it but I almost hope Belgium destroy us, if it means Coleman will go. Give me Verhejen or Meulensteen even

Verhejen ? Really ? :

Don't think Coleman has been that bad. :p
I wanted him to take over after Speed passed away, he would've carried on the excellent progress we'd made. Under Coleman we've gone backwards stylistically, he's had more players falling out / not wanting to play for him too, and I really don't think he's gotten the best out of his players. Despite being a worse footballing side amongst everything else, our defence now seems worse, because we have less of the ball meaning more time on the ball for the oppo to expose how shit it is.

We might have an outside chance of making the next euros (with more teams now) - if we get the best out of Ramsey & Bale, while Ben Davies looks very promising, and a few other players can "do a job" up front we're lacking though.

Dunno, seems bit of a nutjob to me given his comments. And his specialist area is fitness IIRC. Anyway, didn't he bad mouth Wales FA or something in the past too ?

What would be Wales' best team according to you right now ?

Jonny Williams is real promising too, though very unlucky with injuries so far.

he definitely won't get it now, he had a go at them when he was bitter about not getting it, tbf I do think he should've gotten it, he was Speed's assistant, and Osian Roberts, the first team coach, would've been his assistant...

It's hard to put down a proper XI right now, especially with Bellamy finishing ( :( ) I would like to see us try Bale up front at some point, All I know for certain is Ramsey should start in the hole, Jonathan Williams (if he recovers fully) should be starting, and I guess either Bale (or if he's up front) Hal Robson-Kanu on the other spot in the 3 behind the CF....

I'd have Ledley and Vaughan as the deeper 2 for now I think, Ben Davies Left back, Ashley Williams center back, I'd play Celtic's Matthews right back, and Myhill in goal, the other CB slot, probably James Collins but he doesn't pair up well with Williams....

Under Speed, Darcy Blake started regularly, and while he's not good enough to start at all, he had an outstanding link up with Ashley Williams, which made it work...

I've heard it all now :ROFL:

Bale: "Wales have the potential to reach the World Cup finals in Russia in 2018," he said.
