I hope Dunne if fit for Friday.  Though McShane has played centre back before so we're ok there.

Is McShane not out injured?

Ok and McShane in the same sentence. Very strange  :)

Have to be happy with that.

Thought Lawerence was excellent as was Doyle,also impressed with St Ledger.
That Green fella doesn't seem up to it,reminds me a bit of McShane which isn't a good thing,is Gibson injured? I'm not a huge fan of Gibson either but I think he be better than Green.
Delighted for Fahy,anytime I see him with Birmingham he always impresses me and I think he should be close to a starting spot.

Aye, happy with that, considering the heat in Yerevan.  There was about 15 minutes in the second half where it looked a bit hairy but you always have confidence when Shay's between the posts

Only saw the second half but Kevin Doyle like his name sake Johnny is a superb team player, excellent work-rate and great attitude was very very good today. Good result for Ireland.

Very dodgy there, was convinced we'd give away the usual late goal. Thought Doyle was terrific. Lawrence was alright, but some of his set pieces, usually his strong suit, weren't great. Same old with McGeady, lots of huff and puff but little end product. Worrying that Keane was so profligate, we'll need his goals against the better teams. Green looked average at best in the middle, will do well to hold onto his place. Back four just about held on, Dunne doesn't look 100% and Kilbane's legs have well and truly gone. Coleman or Cunningham can't be brought through soon enough for me.

Armenia are pretty useless, worse than I thought they'd be. I expect the other big teams in the group to win there too, so that result really just keeps us ticking over.

Andorra should be a formality. That said, we never hammer teams so I wouldn't be surprised if it was as little as 2-0.

Brian Cody needs to be manager for the next game because Robbie Keane needs to be dropped and nobody wants to do it.
