    Leichtenstein are ranked somewhere around the level of Burton Albion reserves. Showing your class against them is not all it's cracked up to be - really.

    *Numpty - Noun

    a) Someone who (sometimes unwittingly) by speech or action demonstrates a lack of knowledge or misconception of a particular subject or situation to the amusement of others.

    b) A good humoured admonition, a term of endearment

    c) A reckless, absent minded or unwise person

    d) "No. That wisnae wit she meant, ya big numpty!"

    e) i.e. "Silly billy", "You big dafty"

    f) "That numpty's driving with no lights on!"


    They don't have to be a good team for you to perform in an impressive manner against them. It was his first cap, and he played well, it doesn't really matter who he was playing against. He was in everything from the time he came on, particularly when compared to (this is the good part... wait for it) the likes of Archie Thompson.

    If someone went on about his performance as though it made him an international star, Marc might have a point, but comparing his effort against a weak team to the efforts of other players in the same game and therefore judging that he was worthy of a run in the world cup is hardly unreasonable. I'd suggest Guus agrees, as he then went and picked him ahead of Thompson to come on in the next match.

    Really, Marc's comment was only so annoying because it came in a long series of posts bagging Australia and Australian fans, which is something he's been doing consistently ever since this world cup forum opened up. Yes, we get it, England are better. Now can we enjoy watching our team? Thanks.

    Just saw Cahill's interview. His Pommie accent is coming along, isn't it?
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    Interesting match. I spent most of the second half planning an incredibly witty "Australia apply to join CONCACAF" spoof, only for Kawaguchi to do what anyone who ever saw him at Pompey had been expecting all along and make a horrendous mess of, well, I'm not really sure what he was trying to do. The Japan goal clearly shouldn't have stood, but they then had a cast-iron pen turned down.

    Champagne moment of the day was Johnny "I used to play for Coventry" Aloisi making it 3-1 to send my housemate ecstatic as his correct score bet had come off, alongside Japan HT/Australia FT.

    Now please break Robinho, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Kaka, and anyone else you fancy.

    On the news here they are reporting that the Ref. admitted he made an error in allowing the Japanese goal.

    Although I agree Cahill was very lucky not to give away a penalty in the box, at 1-1.
    You know it makes sense.

    TIMMY CAHILL!!! WHAT A LEGEND!!! WHAT A LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW GOOD IS HE?!!?!

    WE WON!!! I HATE THEM FOR MAKING ME WAIT SO LONG UNTIL THEY WON IT



    For the record, the referee apologised to Schwarzer for the challenge, he said he had made the wrong decision. As for the penalty shouts, it aws a penalty by Cahill IMO. Interestingly he was already on a yellow so surely he would have been sent if a penalty was awarded. Australia were BY FAR the better team though. Kawaguchi came up with some amazing saves throughout.

    Impressive win by Australia puts them in good shape to qualify from the group along with Brazil.

    would have just been plain wrong if Australia didn't win.

    Still irrelevant because of it being a meaningless game against extreme tripe.

    Agreed. Harry managed one dive, but the Japanes midfield dived ALL THE TIME. Eventually the ref just let us get away with a fair bit in our tackles because of their constant diving I think. Either that or he was just guessing over some of his decisions...

    As for Viduka, he was jumped on EVERY TIME we played it long. I'm serious, the guy was in or on his back the whole damn game.

    Either way, if the pundits (including a pretty biased in favour of it being a foul Tikka Tel) couldn't decide for sure after umpteen replays, you cannot moan about it being a shocking decision.
