    Terrible draw for us, basically no chance of going through. I'd say that's probably the hardest group of the bunch.

    And he scores goals...!

    Yeah your group is tough.

    Our group isn't too much better (for us anyway). I love the fact we've got England again. It means we'll have some press covarage of our group and it'll also bring in some money through TV revenue as I'm sure Sky will pick up some of our games. I was hoping for either Portugal, Spain or France, because they're teams I haven't seen yet.

    Also as a United fan it'll be good to see Bulgaria and Berbatov coming to Wales. Hopefully that game will be in Cardiff. I think the challenge for us is to get the 3rd spot in the group in order for us to have a better chance in the next qualifying campaign.

    England always get an easy group

    Wales could sneak through, Scotland's isnt too bad either but Ireland and especially Northern Ireland have very tough groups. I was expecting us to be drawn with France. The best thing about our group is Andora and Armenia who should be 12 points straight away. 4 each from Macedonia and Slovakia and I'll be delighted. Expecting 0 from 6 against Russia.

    Easy? That's a difficult group. Switzerland and Bulgaria will not be easy whatsoever.

    Montenegro away is an unknown, although Wales home and away and Montenegro at home should be easy enough. I expect us to win the group, but there's some difficult games in there. Could've been a lot easier.

    I'd say we have a chance against you at the Millennium Stadium (if we decide to play there). I wouldn't expect a win, but a draw wouldn't be out of the question.

    You should beat Switzerland and Montenegro easily though. Games against Bulgaria will be your toughest.

    I was hoping we'd get to see France and the Republic of Ireland in the same group. It would have been war!

    I dunno, I'd say England or France got the easiest groups tbh. Switzerland/Romania are probably the weakest 2nd seed teams.

    English are never happy unless they get every single worst team imo.

    And he scores goals...!

    The only problem I see with Englands group is the potential for some seriously boring games. England should go through with ease, but that should always be the case.

    Nortern Ireland should stop whining about that group. They wont beat Italy and Serbia might be hard but the rest are easy. I find Serbia to be far overated.

    Scotland however have a tricky task. Spain and Czech Republic will most likely go through unless Scotland really challenge.

    ROI should go through, unless they let themselves down as per usual.

    We should go through.

    Wales..... Where?

    Group A's the tough one. 4 decent nations there.

    Yeh Scotland have a very tricky group, I can't see them beating Spain and Czech Republic are always tough to beat.

    England should qualify easily, nice to have Wales in our group.

    They were poor in our World Cup group tbh. Definitely not that dangerous a team.

    And he scores goals...!

    I'm quite disappointed that Wales have drawn England again. Whenever we play Wales, people around here turn in to horrible fucking racists. I could do without the aggro, to be honest
