    I don't think it was altogether unwarranted. We'd just lost a game minutes earlier, with the winning goal coming 18 seconds after the end of added time. I thought it was quite mean-spirited to come along and kick us when we were down.

    That's football, putting the boot in. Welcome to the show.

    Nah, sorry, comment was uncalled for. Apologies.

    It's a minimum amount, it's not set in stone.

    If time is wasted during the added time, then the referee is quite correct to add on more time.

    No worries. Thing is we know we're average, and we know we're going to get badly thrashed - just thought your comment was unnecessary and glad that you appreciate that.

    To be fair, I probably overreacted to it, so I apologise as well.

    This football thing can bring out some emotion, can't it? I'm so used to being on the wrong side of drubbings, most matches in the past have just made me go "meh".

    "Smug European ****" seemed rather OTT, surely. I don't expect New Zealand to do especially badly at the World Cup in any case. Although I'd probably rather they were thrashed than lose the way they did last night...

    Fallon's header in the second half should've gone in too.

    Relying on Fallon to do anything is never a good position to be in.

    Tbh mate, I don't know that you will get thrashed. You'll need some luck as we will, but they seem a disciplined outfit tbh.

    And personally, I wish Smeltz (sp?) Was one of ours.

    Mmm, hasn't been the best for the 'roos, but can't deny that he's playing (and from all reports playing quite well) regularly in one of the better leagues and teams when compared to qutie a number of his teammates. Figure he must be doing something right for Pim to show faith, even though his international appearances have in general been nothing short of rubbish.

    Oh Vidosic. Went down to Melbourne to watch it, and to see him score his first ever International goal... loved it. Heck yes.

    Our first half was appalling. Craig Moore was farcical, I'd love to see Beauchamp in his spot. Culina was tops for the whole game. McDonald is just a joke, would not mind if we wasn't even in the squad.

    Some big positives anyway, nice to see we can win while playing what was imo pretty bad football for the majority.

    Grella really knows how to lay on a stupid tackle. What price on him getting a red sometime in the next month?

    North, Carle & McDonald gone from the squad that's heading over to Holland (now 28). Can't wait to see who gets a run vs. Denmark now, especially given fringe players like Lowry/Garcia/Holland/Galekovic who are still in the squad but haven't yet been given a run. Really don't see how we're going to get past the group stage if Moore is one half of our first-choice centre-back pairing either. He's woefully short on match fitness and no speed in his tiring legs whatsoever, nothing but a liability IMHO.
