Ireland cant lose surely. Who are armenia - they rank even below the north in fifa ratings.

Eh, no they don't. They're 26 places ahead of them and not a kick in the arse behind us.

Nervy evening ahead. Reckon we'll hold on for a scoreless draw.

Jaysus not too confident about this one at all... Can't over the team selection - Giles calls it nonsense, Dunphy says it's "perverse" and Brady is very worried....

Plenty of spare seats at the minute... Hope that changes

Another dire game ahead of us.  We should be winning these games but I feel we will have to take a draw.  1-1 which will see us into the playoffs.

Thats highly negative!!  We need to be beating Armenia at home in fairness.
We are a bad side to watch though, play a horrible style of soccer.  I dont understand with the way Ireland play that Rory Delap doesnt get game time  ??? Is he even in the squad?

I don't disagree about winning these games but seeing that a draw is enough I feel that the team that Trap sets out won't take the risks or attack far enough up the field to but the pressure on and win this game by two or three like I feel we should.  Trap will be happy with a draw and won't do much more than is required for fear of falling a goal behind.

Ten minutes in and all the pressure is coming from the Armenians.  It could be a long 90 minutes.

Against Slovakia - Ireland looked the away team

It looks like its going to be the same here, Armenia owning the ball with some nice triangle passing.  Why do Ireland look so technically bad to other teams? 

Ireland - conceding majority possession in every game they play

Surely the whole lack of euthaism over the Ireland soccer team could be partly explained by the flipping dire stuff they play

What is it exactly about the way Ireland play that makes you think Delap would be an appropriate selection?

About time a controversial hand ball decision went our way - two years too late though!
That was never a square ball!!
