    Wales World Cup qualifying group 2014

    Looked at this the other day. We were drawn in the following group

    Belgium
    Croatia
    Serbia
    Scotland
    Macedonia
    Wales

    Wow. I think we were bottom seeds for the draw. What a horrible group.

    I think we were bottom seeds, Faroe Islands took our place in pot 5 after making a complaint or something. Wasn't this the catalyst to us "gaming the system"?

    I've just looked at the seeds for that draw, its remarkable how much international football has changed in such a short period of time. We drew Croatia from pot 1 which included Greece and Norway whilst Belgium were in pot 3! Despite being in pot 6 we easily could have had a group consisting of Norway, Montenegro, Belarus, Lithuania and the Faroe Islands!

    Belgium pot three. Incredible. Were Montenegro really second seeds?

    Think it sums up the madness of seedings

    We were never going to get a realistic chance of qualifying from that pot.
    We should never have allowed our ranking to fall so far.
