    Tbf, Filan isn't too hot either. I was a huge fan of his, but this season he was out of his depth whenever he got in ahead of Pollit. Not quick enough (these days.)

    Filan is a clown, anyone who doubts me, watch some old videos of him in action for Blackburn Rovers. Most of them are ****ing horror shows.

    Filan nothing special, but he probably should have been in the squad as the third keeper, but that would mean we would have three keepers over 30.

    Well I guess you've seen more of him this year than me, but suffice to say that Hiddink's rep as master tactician has taken a bit of a knock with Schwarzer's non-selection.

    Decent substitutions tho.

    Oh wow. What a game.

    To be honest, Australia would have been terribly unlucky to lose the game, given a pair of blatant penalties and far more chances, and it was simply relief in the end when Kewell scored, but it's an amazing effort to make the second round.

    Kewell had a simply brilliant second half after being relatively quiet in the first, and Kennedy showed for the third time out of three caps that he makes a massive difference to Australia when he comes on towards the end. Viduka had another good game, as did Lucas Neill, who has surely been one of the players of the tournament so far, and Australia's best by a huge distance.

    The second worst person on the pitch was Kalac, beaten only by the referee. As if missing two penalties wasn't bad enough, he then gave Simunic a third yellow. At this point though, it's hard to care.

    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.
    Sorry to get pedantic on you, but nepotism would involve you exerting some sort of power.

    Which you obviously don't have because the Socceroos eliminated the (expletive epithet) Croatians.

    Magical power?

    I'm deeply embarrassed & ashamed by the whole sorry affair. I've clearly made grave errors of judgement that leave an indelible stain on my reputation.

    Hence, I've decided to announce my retirement from frontline politics to spend more talking cobblers on internet forums.

    Well, I’m excited for your Aussies, even if you don’t have the support of the fishy Norwegian. I didn’t see the match, but it sounds as drama-filled as you’d hope for a do-or-die match.
