What would an Aussie know about quality birds?Originally Posted by FaaipDeOiad

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.Originally Posted by luckyeddie
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?

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.

Still irrelevant because of it being a meaningless game against extreme tripe.Originally Posted by FaaipDeOiad

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
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...Originally Posted by ash chaulk
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.
No, it's called having exams at the start of the World Cup.Originally Posted by benchmark00
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.
