First Clive and now Sven, what with these national coaches and being tactically inept.

Always nice to see the old enemy defeated but rather than taking to much solace from the misery of others lets have a look at where this leaves Wales:

Bottom of the group
Less capable of bting England than Northen Ireland
Incapable of beating Northen Ireland (so far) and unlikely to do so in Belfast now they are riding the crest of the wave.

In 8 games we have gone from potential group challengers to absolute no hopers. The Welsh media had us down for easy wins against NI, Austria and Azer, to take points off Poland and Engalnd and challenge for the top of the group!

Very disappointing and shown to be completely unrealistic. I could see we have been on a downward curve pretty much since that night against Italy, but didn't expect it to come to this.

I think Hughes has got to take a lot of the blame. He managed to squeeze a couple of reasonable results out of a number of aging old pros (and add in a couple of new youngsters) but did nothing that was going to develop new players long term.

Toshack has got his work cut out and is trying to plan for future tournaments, but its going to take years to rebuild this squad to a quality level - we have Div 1/2 players out there last night - even N Ireland don't seem to rely on much beneath The Championship.

And to top it off our seeding is going to drop down even further and make it much more difficult qualifying groups over the next couple of tournaments.

Very sad to see how far we have fallen, but I think part of the problem with this was we perceived ourselves to be in an artificially high position in the first place!!
