FIFA Ranking: November 2009 ranking to be postponed?

If FIFA will use the same formula as in 2006 to determine the seeds for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, they might be forced to postpone the November 2009 release. As of now, it's scheduled for November 11th, but this means the last two match days (14 and 18 November) will not be included in the calculation.
The UEFA playoffs (between the 8 best runners-up) and the intercontinental playoffs (CONMEBOL vs. CONCACAF and AFC vs. OFC) will be played on those dates. Also, the last match day of the CAF qualifiers is scheduled for November 14.

With the final draw taking place on December 4th in Cape Town, they can't use the December ranking (to be published on December 16th). And bringing the December release date forward doesn't seem to be an option.

Most likely, they will postpone the November 2009 ranking, from November 11th to November 20th, as they did in 2007, in order to use the November 2007 for the preliminary World Cup draw.

EURO 2012: Qualifying draw coefficients (11 February 2009)

The coefficients for the EURO 2012 qualifying draw will take into account results from:

2006 World Cup (qualifiers and final tournament) - 20% of total weighting
EURO 2008 (qualifiers and final tournament) - 40% of total weighting
2010 World Cup (qualifiers) - 40% of total weighting

Click here for more info on the coefficient system.

As mentioned before, I assume UEFA will use a qualifying system with six groups of six teams and three of five teams (Poland (24960) and Ukraine (23026) - automatically qualified as hosts).

Three matches played: Republic of Ireland - Georgia 2 - 1, San Marino - Northern Ireland 0 - 3 and Malta - Albania 0 - 0. The Irish teams both climb 4 spots and are now in the same pot, as Northern Ireland jumped to the 3rd pot.

FIFA Ranking: March 2009 preview (II)
