Northern Ireland,one of only 9 teams to win their group end up in pot 4,yet teams which had to qualify through the playoffs are in pot 2!

N.Ireland did so well to win their group and should be rewarded with avoiding the top teams.

Hard to argue with you there Thynker. I suppose it's that co-efficient thing again.

Does seem unfair as snappy says it must be the co-efficients

May as well not bother with qualifying.
Just choose the top 24 European teams by FIFA ranking

If they are good enough to qualify then they are good enough to play anyone they are drawn with.

That's an argument to do away with seeding altogether - at least that'd be fair
