    In wish case, it's not really a civil war is it.

    Crouch is worse (as in his actual diving ability), as he looks like a giraffe that's just been shot. Deco would be a more prolific 'better' diver.

    na its ok i understand people dont like NFL.

    its 30 secs between plays you need it trust me. its a sport where any person of any shape and size can play thats why i like it although when the big boys come for ya it hurts.

    now to soccer i like it but.... its the only sport where you can go without scoring and you still get a premiership point it should always goto penalties i think.

    im going to put this out here and say australia will draw 1-1 with brazil with aus scoring an early goal

    actually not really
    there are three possible chacnes which Australia has the best chance to score.

    Early on, and i mean really early in the game, as Brazil wont come out firing because its Australia, they dont need to play their best football to win.
    Next is straight after half time, as once again its Brazil vs Australia, like a lion vs a mouse. And after a Hiddink talk the Aussies will be fired up.
    And if Brazil only happen to score one goal and it is nearing full time Brazil may just start to relax a little bit, and therefore Australias last oppurtunity to score. I am not saying that this will happen but at these points in time are Australia best chance to socre.
    I would be estatic if Australia ould score 1 goal in the game. espeially if it was the first goal.

    Alternatively, Australia have no chance, because Brazil are nigh-on unbeatable these days.

    There's going to have to be a World Cup Avatar Challenge. I want an opportunity to stake my figurative house on Australia not winning a game at these finals.

    Oooooo. Wouldn't say a game is beyond them. Unlikely, but you never know.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I can't help thinking the Aussies are seriously lacking in big-game experience. The likes of Japan and Croatia have been there plenty of times before. Not to mention being better teams than Australia to start with, albeit marginally. They'll definitely get smashed by Brazil though.

    Wow. Who knew it was so simple to beat Brazil... If only every other coach in the world understood just how to cash in on the clear predictability of the dominant World Champions. You should type up a resume.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Didn't Scotland do this once (score early against Brazil)?
