Poland would be ideal from pot 1, along with Wales, Lithuania, Faroes and Malta.

would settle for that! we would have a fair chance of a top 2 finish

will it be any advantage being in  group of 5 or 6 teams, do points against the bottom team not count again?

Yes would agree with all of that. Probably add Albania and Montenegro as OK from pot 4 with Czech and maybe even Wales from pot 2.

Major avoids for me are Germany from 2, Hungary or Romania from 4, and apart from Moldova any of the former Eastern bloc teams in pot 5 could be difficult.

Italy - A wee bit of glam.

Iceland - Starting to fade? The main thing here is dodging ze Germans.

OWC

Lithuania - Avoiding Hungary, Romania, Greece and Albania would be desirable.

Gibraltar

Andorra

Germany with the away game being played in the south of the country at the end of September/start of October and apart from no home countries (or the other bunch), Italy or Turkey (I swore I would never set foot in that country again after our game in Izmir in '86) I'll take my chances with the rest of them.
