eamo`s got mmarried and ireland to be seeded
eamon dunphy,bill and john giles are back for tonights man. u. champs league action.with a combined age of 203 years will these lads ever think of retiring.eamo got married when he was 64,it must have been john in the studio humming the old frankie song `love and marraige``all the time that convinced him to finally tie the knot at that age.meanwhile the qualifiers for the play-offs for the world cup to be played in november will be seeded so ireland could face france(henry,anelka),russia(pavleyachenko,arshavin)portugal(ronaldo,deco) or other top team.ireland 38th in the world rankings would face top ranked teams.

There shouldn't be such thing as seeded teams for this. Portugal should be potentially able to meet France. It's not fair on the smaller nations that have done well and then for the bigger nations that struggle to have a good chance of going through. I think also the champions league would be more interesting if teams weren't seeded to avoid each other and teams from the same country to face each other. The current format is too predictable as more often than not the top 2 seeded teams always qualify. It would be more interesting this way.
like highwayman says about the champions leauge about every body in the pot at the start, and who you get is who you get, but they keep the top teams apart as they make more money for the uefa, they will go further, more people buy tickets, more peole will watch the matches on telly, can you really see yourself sitting down in may. watching some team from norway v some team form wales in the final, some how i dont think so, so its like that for the world cup the bigger the team that gets there the more tickets, tv etc, etc. so thats why they try to elimanate the smaller countrys, as the bigger countrys mean bigger fans and bigger money, but hey lads, if ireland dont get there my heart bleeds for you ha!!!!!!!!!!!
come on england!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

as it stands right now the draw would be (assuming norway ,as seems likely,dont make it)
russia - 6 (world ranking)
If its 1v8th 2nd v 7th etc that sets us up for a play off vs greece.
