    I still vividly remember one Arsenal - Liverpool game 4 or 5 years ago, where Poll went on TV before the game vowing that any discussion after the game wouldn't be about him. How wrong he was (3 reds, all undeserved). I've thought he's rubbish ever since.

    haha that was hilarious, only would have been better if simnovic had scored after supposedly only recieving his first yellow card.

    who was the ref who sent off gio van bronkhorst for arsenal when playing against liverpool for supposed diving, turned out gio got hacked down by henchoz i think it was, one of the worst decisions i have ever seen, although im pretty sure it wasnt poll.

    I remember two of the reds in the game I'm thinking of. McAllister off for Liverpool and Viera for Arsenal, can't remember the other one though.

    That's more or less what I said. World class refereeing would have picked it up - wasn't calling bias (in that post...)

    And why the cheap shot? It's the first time we've had reason to celebrate so much. It'd be more of a shame if the Socceroos did this well and didn't get the support they have.

    Does anyone find it slightly amusing that he keeps for AC Milan, one of the teams being investigated in Italy?

    Same reason as everyone seems to hate the US team (see the Whose failure are you supporting? thread). Come January, most of you will have forgotten one can kick a round ball, the A-League will be bankrupt in 2008, and Australia will win the Asian Cup without anyone caring.

    (sorry. Supported Croatia because of the above, which is completely biased and utter nonsense, and I probably shouldn't post right now. But still...mmf.)

    Just remember, when a photoshopped image of you and Kalac having KBS appears mysteriously on the Internet...

    It was me.

    A great game to watch, one that kept the interest for the drama rather than the quality of the play, but possibly the game I've enjoyed most!

    Kalac is seriously useless. How the hell is he anywhere near the squad, much less the team?! John Filan is an infinitely better keeper than him.

    & hats off to Mr Poll. Simunic is surely a future trivia question: which player, playing against the country of his birth, received three yellow cards & got away with a Rugby tackle in the box?

    Well played Oz. I actually cheered when Harry scored. Involuntarily, but a cheer anyway!

    Doubt Graham Poll will be getting many more games in this World Cup, absolutely moronic display from supposedly are best official.

    Sad to see Croatia knocked out, nepotism aside I actually thought over the three games they were the second best team in the group and if they had a striker worth any salt they would have progressed. Credit to Australia though even with Kalac trying to lose the game for them they always stuck out and showed great fighting qualities throughout the tournament.
