England & Wales in the same group with Russia and Slovakia


Man Utd lost 2nd game in a row today. 2-1 to Bournemouth winning only 3 of their last 12 games now. .

Yeah, knocked out of the Champions League and losing or snore drawing too many league games... think Van Gaal will get the sack before the season ends? They could be losing Ryan Giggs too - apparently Swansea want him as their new boss.

Chelsea have sacked Jose according to every media outlet going.

Finally! With their league position how it is, he should've gone weeks ago.

As a Chelsea fan it's sad to see him go. I was hoping the board would have kept him till season's end but unfortunately I think they were fed up. If Mourinho had at least used some of our younger talent like Loftus-Cheek, Kennedy or Baba a bit more, probably would have saved his job a bit longer. Playing the same old tired faces gave us the same old results. I blame him for that as well as most of our players, just seems the whole team is out of form this season.

It should be interesting to see who they get to replace him - you essentially have to rebuild a club at one of the worst times in the season.

Guus Hiddink will be interim and is also a candidate for long term as well as Atletico Madrid's manager Diego Simeone.

Man Utd lose again. This time to Norwich, who are in the relegation zone. 3rd loss in a row, no wins in 6. And only 3 wins in 13 games.

While Man. United are going through there struggles, Chelsea play one of there best games of the season even though it was against Sunderland. Oscar played the best football he has played all year which was a sight to see.

At this rate, it can't be much longer before LVG joins Jose in the dole queue.

And the man himself is expecting it.

Pretty great game out there from Watford today as they beat Liverpool 3-0. It's been an interesting weekend all around, Man United are on their worst run in over a decade and Leicester are now sitting at top, five points clear.

Were. That win nudged them up out of it!

Gary Lineker needs to be more careful - the Match of the Day host cut his finger on the Sports Personality of the Year trophy!

Louis van Gaal stormed out of a press conference within five minutes, because people were asking if he was about to be sacked:

Man Utd lose again, this time 2-0 to Stoke. 4th loss in a row. Not won in any of last 7 games.

Last 7 : LLLLDDD

I don't see any way back for LVG. He has had the time and money. I don't think he will be fired, but allowed the opportunity to resign. Though this was seen in the crowd today.

I think it'll be a similar situation to what we saw with Mourino - "mutual consent". I just wonder when it'll happen.

Also, Leicester lose their first match in 10 games, falling 0-1 to Liverpool.

As a Utd fan this season is horrible.

As a football (soccer) fan, this is the most insane Premier League season I have ever seen. Southampton just beat Arsenal 4-0.. It could have been more. They had the ball in the net another 2 times, and missed 2 other great chances.

Louis van Gaal: Man Utd boss says he could choose to quit
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/35182965

I'd say if United fail to win again on Monday, he won't have much choice.

As much as LVG is to blame, I can't fully blame him. Yes, his tactics are horrible. But the players have no care, passion or pace, or even interest in trying to win.

This isn't just a LVG problem, cracks were forming when Ferguson was near the end of his time and he plastered over them. Moyes came in and the squad didn't seem to care. That has followed right through now to LVG.

Yes, his tactics are horrible, but the players are also largey responsible.

I have always found it interesting how quick the media is to blame managers over the performance of the players. There is clearly something wrong with them, regardless of who they have in charge.

That was such a fantastic game. Given the poor form the Saints have shown lately, I'm super proud. (though I think the scoreline should have been similar to our performance against Sunderland in the 8-0 win) I think a lot of the positives today came from Pelle not playing and I wonder how this will impact his spot going forward - Koeman rarely if ever benches him and today it couldn't be helped.
