    The Big Game

    Who will Ireland be playing in the Play-Off? The picture will become clearer after Iranís Asian Group A showdown with Iraq in Tehran tomorrow.

    PLayoff

    I'd put my money on Saudi Arabia.

    Didn't think there would be any trouble playing a match there but after hearing a few attacks on foreigners yesterday maybe it ain't safe. Sure a months a long time so who knows what'll happen but you can be sure FIFA will screw Ireland in some form........

    I'm not so sure... who do you think they would rather screw over... us or a team in that region?

    My money is on Saudi's too... it looks like Iran are going through now with China.

    I figure Saudi as well. They are a handy team, remember their performances in the usa world cup. I can't see them losing to any of the teams they might face in their playoff. That said, the asian teams shouldnt be underestimated- i was watchin iran-v-iraq a few weeks ago on eurosport(incidentally, can anyone explain why eurosport are showing asian football!!!!!) and iraq looked pretty good, and they're well behind the saudis. it is a potential banana skin.

    Exclamation Need to a good home win

    Saw the goals/highlights they showing on tv last night. Both teams look to be fairly skillful going forward as could probably be expected but some of the defending was woeful.

    Whoever we play we need to win by at least 2-0 at home as I don't think we'd fancy defending a 1 goal lead against a capacity 120k crowd in Tehran.

    I think we'd need more than a 2:0 but we are very unlikely to get it. It might sound defensive but i think Mick McCarthy's priority should be not giving an away goal to them as that is what screwed us the last two times we played a playoff.

    I wonder if there will be any away fans at Landsdowne?

    .... there would probably be an equal amount of CIA agents sitting 2 rows behind them.
