Haha yeah, Fozzie, legend. Also, Viduka should definitely be there. He played well in the 1st half, and was marked doggedly by Simunic. I'm also absolutely disgusted by Mr Lonely...Originally Posted by Craig

Too bad Daniele De Rossi had to do an elbow to the head in the USA game, he could of at least saved it for this game
And we can never rule out a Marco Materazzi challange on Harry Kewell, or Marco Bresciano or on somebody else...

I'm waiting for my post world cup call up into the Australian team in place of Kalac......
The end was an utter shambles, and Poll will almost certainly not be refereeing the final.
Again though. FIFA have been pretty stupid with their choice of referees for certain games. Mexican ref - England vs Paraguay. Hispanic ref refereeing another Hispanic country. Spainish ref in the Ecuador game. English ref doing an Australia game
Babelfish like the rest of us here it seems - lost for words.
'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

I cheered when Kewell scored as well...
Wouldn't have been fair if Croatia had gone through, Australia were dominant for most of the match...
Poll was just as bad to the Croats as the Australians.Originally Posted by Matteh
Yeah Mexico and Paraguay have so many things in common, other than being as far away as Britain is to the Sudan. The people are exactly the same, the cultural is so similar, both countries speak the same language, Mexicans speak Spanish, the vast majority of Paraguayans speak Guaraní et cetera et cetera.
Also I doubt the Ecuadorians fully understood the Spanish ref, considering people from Ecuador speak colloquial Spanish.
btw Brazil started to string things together in the second half against Japan.
Good to watch, and good to see Ronaldo get a couple of goals.
While I'm not looking to have a whinge about the refereeing, that was clearly not the case. Australia had two of the most blatant penalties you will ever see ignored, including one that should also have been a red card as a deliberate handball prevented a clear shot at goal, and Simunic was left on the field after being given two yellows. Obviously both sides suffered poor decisions, as Kewell was also offside for his goal (though that wasn't Poll's fault), but Australia had the worst of it by a long way.Originally Posted by TT Boy
For sure but I failed to the see a clear bias which Matteh's post was alluding to, presumably Poll speaks English, Australia people are sometimes known to speak English. Put two and two together and you get five.Originally Posted by FaaipDeOiad
Yeah, I don't think it was biased, just crappy referreeing. In fact, in terms of general fairness in approach to the contest, I thought this game had the best refereeing of the three Australia have been involved in. There's been a clear influence that's come into the refereeing so far from the media image of Australia as a rough team, and I think the foul count of 26-9 or whatever it was in the Brazil game bears that out pretty well. In this game, the referee was pretty fair, he just made a lot of mistakes.Originally Posted by TT Boy
