So what are everyones predictions for tonights game?

We have a good record at home but, our main issue is obviously in the forwards. If Timmy Cahill doesn't play it'll be a lot harder for us.

I'm thinking 2-1 if Timmy plays and 1-0 if he doesn't. We'll have to lean on Mooy and hope can lead us around the park.

I reckon that Honduras have one goal in them on the counter. Let's hope that the boys can convert more than they did against Thailand and Syria at home.

Will most likely watch the game as it is a do or die match, but for a game of skill, sadly it is often negative and ever so boring to watch.

We should win - they're not that good. But neither were Syria and we laboured over the return leg against them.

To be honest they dont deserve to make the WC. They have had chance after chance and have been ordinary. Having said that, they may make it through on penalties but who really cares?

Its hard to get behind this lot. People think that the yanks were embarrassing in the RLWC. Just wait for the soceroos to debut in Russia.

Agree in part. Where I disagree is the part about it being hard to get behind the team. It's not hard for me because they are playing for Australia and I always support our team. Where I agree is the part about playing in the WC finals. My problem is that, when they get to that level, they tend to play a style that is more directed to a draw or not losing by a big margin. I'd far rather see them play to score goals and lose 4 - 0 if that's the way the ball bounces.

They've lost one game during the qualification matches. Yeah we should have won more games but if we go through I'm pretty sure we'll have lost the least amount of qualification games in Asia. Crap teams drop more than one game.

With Leckie, Milligan and Cahill back I reckon Mooy will get pushed forward. I think we'll win 2-0.

Luongo on the bench might be a masterstroke.

Glad Juric isn't starting.

Soccer's a very different game to league, just look at some of the crazy FA Cup results that happen...If they make it they might jag their way to the 2nd round depending on the draw.
