Jeez, at first glance that looked ok to me to but if FIFA rankings are anywhere close to reality it is awful. France 9- Peru 11- Denmark 12- Australia 39.LOL If you saw a horserace like that the comment would be, hopelessly outgraded, better suited at the provincials.

Is it just my imagination or does England get a sweet draw at every World Cup? Not that it does them any good.


I am surprised that people are surprised that we don't get out of the group stage. We don't have the cattle.Cry If we did they would be playing for good clubs in the top leagues. It's like asking a bush trainer why he doesn't win G1s.

Just like punters Tlaz, you bet to lose with the Hope of winning, and hope springs eternal,
no different to oz football fans , they know deep down they only have a flukers chance ,
just like the bush trainer, but if you haven't got a ticket, how can you win it.

A good soccer team needs a rapier thrust from their forwards but the Socceroos have damp sponges.

It’s funny- listening to local coverage here before the Peru match it was all about how we’d be able to beat Peru and how it was a shame we didn’t get more than a point out of the first two matches. Switch over to ESPN and international coverage and the consensus was that Peru would be way too good for us. And so they were.

The boys on ESPN really know their football and Gav Marcotti f/ball journo is one of the best, the group Oz were in was tough and 2 to survive into KO are Japan and Kor.Rep.
and Iran were unlucky, so when the dust settles we should just be happy we made it,
these teams didn't, Chile (tops) Italy, America, Scotland, Wales,Nth Ireland,and plenty more, if your a fan just enjoy it and to hell what other people think.

The Gliks all moved to Melbourne I heard.

They would be AFL brain washed by now.
