In an attempt to avoid commenting on Australia’s exit from the Asian Cup, I’ve been searching for a “filler”… and what better way of doing so than by looking at pics of what is shaping up to be a deadly attacking combination. By the looks of these images, all seems to be going well down [...]

Arnold is going to set the team up in a pretty predictable formation. If the Jap-osnian’s play their card’s right, they might just get away with a win. I’ve spoken to a lot of people about tonights game and they all fear the worst for Australia… and all give the same reason; Cause Arnold won’t [...]

Nostalgia, excitement, revenge… the words that come to mind are endless as this game is shaping up to be massive!Japan, who I believe are playing some of the best football in this tournament at the moment, will also be playing high on emotion… it wasn’t just the Sake that left a sour taste in their [...]

I was scouring the cesspool that is YouTube and found this classic: The ol’ foe v Australia… Gotta love the hairstyles of a bygone era! And to think it was only 4 years ago. Enjoy!

This was such an anti-climax to the brilliance that was Argentina. By far they’d played some of the best football of the tournament, yet were absolutely destroyed by Brazil’s youngsters. Big’up to ‘The Beast’ for netting the first goal of the game, it was a great strike and unlike many cup finals of the last [...]

The Socceroos withstood a barrage of attacks from the Thai’s last night, yet still managed to score a handful of goals. This goes to prove two theories: 1. Retards can coach a team of superstars and 2. Drunken idiots can almost predict the scores of a match that most people would right off.Australia’s ‘new’ defense [...]

Im about to do something outrageous right now and predict that Australia will beat Thailand tonight 5-0! Viduka(x2), Aloisi(1), Nick Carle(1)… yeah that’s right Nick Carle!… and Kewell(1).Crazy or not, I think that tonight things will actually go right for the Socceroos and they will announce that they’ve arrived in the Asian Cup tournament.Finally, we’ll [...]

or was it a nightmare?Judging by the date and the way the Socceroos performed, I’d say it was a nightmare. Even though Australia performed better than what they did against Oman, I believe school boy errors in the defence cost them the match. Iraq’s talented midfielder, Nashat Akram helped to drive a steak right through [...]

Arnie’s under pressure, so are the boys. They need to step it up a notch and take it to the Iraq’s. Media has been suggesting over the last week that the Aussies will come out in a more attacking formation… my guess is that they’ll be digging into Iraqi oil wells for a supply. Let’s [...]

This boy never ceases to amaze me. I’ve commented on his impeccable skill so many times over the last few months, Messi goal, not scrappy at all!, Lionel Messi Saves Barca in Extra Time, its just mind boggling to think he’s only 20 years old and still has so much learning to do. Only hours [...]

This is testament to the lyrics of 50 Cent:“Homie, you hustlin’ backwards if you chasin’ a bitchStupid, chase the paper, they come with the shit”… no truer words have been spoken or in this case sung!In all fairness though, Messi could of at least given her his jersey…


We’re down to the business end of the Copa America, and overnight, the favourites Argentina, ripped apart peru 4-0. Juan Roman Riquelme bagged 2, while Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano completed the drubbing.And in the other quarter final, Mexico demolished Paraguay 6-0. So it all boils down to an ’06 World Cup rematch, which was [...]

The Socceroos were given a rude awakening overnight, as was I, when they barely scraped through their maiden Asian Cup match against Oman.These few simple words published on The World Game summed it up to a tee: “The Socceroos were so poor and disjointed in their maiden match in the Asian Cup that super-sub Tim [...]

Up until I saw this picture, I’d had my doubts about Australia’s preparation leading up to The Asian Cup, which starts this Saturday. I think it’s because the Socceroos went into the World Cup as underdogs and proved to the world that they could play football.Yet now, a year on, they’re about to embark on [...]

Socceroos midfielder Mark Bresciano has pledged he will only play in Australia’s Asian Cup opener on Sunday night if fully fit as he races time to get over a foot injury.Bresciano picked up the knock in a practice match in Singapore on Tuesday night and admitted he had been struggling since to shake off the [...]
