If we win our last 2 games and results go our way.

Did well to get a point yesterday, some great displays at the back, especially from Dunne.

Armenia will be confident of coming to Landsdowne Rd after their win over Slovakia.

Slovakia still have to play Russia at home.

Going to be an interesting last couple of games.

The group is wide open now.

It is very possible now. First if we win our two remaining games we are guaranteed a play-off. Slovakia are home to Russia and have to win or they are out as Russia will win their other game. If Slovakia win we will top the group.

Need to score a few goals against Andorra.

Slovakia-Russia will be an interesting game.

If it goes to last game and we need a win to top group, then hope we dont get nervy.

Armenia will be confident of beating us after yesterday.

We only need to beat Andorra 1-0. Goal difference will not come into it.

It's great that we have this oppourtunity, but we only have it due to other results. If we'd been a little less negative against Slovakia we would have everything in our own hands.

Would be good to put a good score on Andorra.

We're struggling in that area at the moment.

Trappatoni actually needs to go for it and drop Andrews and McGeady, couldnt believe he took Duff off instead of McGeady against Russia.

Needs to make peace with Andy Reid and get a decent footballer in the middle of the park with Whelan

McGeady is an awful player. I really don't know what people see in him. A winger who can't cross! His defending has been decent the last 2 games though.

I think we could do it, a win against Andorra is a big possiblilty while Armenia is winnable especially after beating them over there. I hope we don't play as negative but know we will.

They need to wingers who will attack and cross the ball and someone in the centre of the park who will create rather than Andrews and Whelen who are there to defend and cant do that right

I think we would be favorites to top the group but as we all know favorites is not an Irish thing. Its very do able we have the best fixtures of the 4 teams which I did not think I would be saying after the Russia match.

I also think that trap needs to go after the euros he has been a good manager and he has given us a brilliant defence it seems but we dont attack in even sense of the word. Someone a bit more attacking while still building from the back is what we need.

The players are there to get the job done but he seems to be stuck in his way

If they are changing managers Martin O'Neills not doing anything at the minute

Martin O'Neil isn't exactly know for being creative. We need a big lump upfront with him. Where's Caleb Folan?
