    Cant see any of the big names troubled. Group F is the easiest, I wish we were in it but I can settle for Group G, we have a fighting chance.Group E & H seem the toughest with the scandanavians.

    Why do I find it funny Armenia refuse to play in group A (because of Azerbaijian), its all a bit handbags at dawn.:lol:

    I thought our group was pretty easy actually. Sure the swedes will be tough, but the Fins? Mwah.

    Norway kinda sucks nowadays as well, they didn't really put up a good fight in the quali's for last WC either.
    They can be a tough nut to crack on brilliant days, but generally they have problems beating even B-countries, like Lithuania or Macedonia.

    Top 2 from each group qualify, right? Looks pretty easy for all the favorites, but you never know. England failed to qualify for the last one. Why does it seem like France and Romania are always together?

    Best #2 auto-qualifies, the other 8 play a playoff-game for qualification.

    Pretty easy for you maybe... but Sweden have their work to do with Finland and Hungary on their heels, both respectable countries within their classes. Plus I doubt Moldova and (certain) San Marino are not even going to pull off a fluke "draw" against the other teams, so if Sweden(or unlikely NL) get a draw against Hungary/Finland it could be game over.

    I like the look of Group G even more, both Wales and Montenegro have an outside chance, and an outside chance is more than we usually get:lol:

    Word. It was my first thought when I saw the list. "We're playing Romania again?" Oh well, I guess it's better than being in the same group as...Ireland. :lol:

    Serbia got what they were looking for I reckon, an easy group bar Italy. England always does well in this groups crap, definitely rigged imo. I am hoping Serbia does well after horrors of 2008.

    We do have a very easy group to be fair.

    I can't see any of those sides troubling us.

    I'm not saying they don't have an easy group this time, but they did fail to qualify for Euro '08.
