    Reckon we have a much tougher time of it this time around. Our squad isn't as strong without Viduka, and our Kewell, Emerton, Grella and Neill models are 4 years older. You would expect Ghana and Serbia to be tougher prospects than Japan and Croatia were as well. Our real problem will be scoring goals.

    For someone who follows Serie A a bit closer, (Craig?) how has Bresciano's form been? We'll need a massive performance from him and Timmeh if we're going to get the goals we need to progress imo.

    Admittedly he hasn't started for them as much as he'd like. But he has been very, very good when I've watched him, and is my pick for our best player this WC.

    Bit of a miniature Group of Death here, every match a tough one to call. Hoping Australia go through, the other teams are distinctly difficult to like.

    As long as that fat **** Scott McDonald breaks his legs, Australia can do what they want.

    Can't see Australia making it out of the group. Think two points would be a pretty big achievement against these sides. Hopping they do make it out of the group, for the good of CW.

    Far tougher group for us than '06. I hope we do qualify however. We almost made the quarters last year.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Big chance of beating Ghana imo. Just need to play out of our skins to try and get a point in the other games. Can't see us scoring against Serbia.

    Winning 2 games isnt impossible, winning 1 game and a draw is achievable while a draw against someone is probably most likely. We aren't terrible and I can't see us leaving with no points but it's going to be a big ask to qualify.
    Does anyone know the status of Mateja Kezman, last I saw he can barely get a game for anyone, would quietly wet myself if he and Lucas Neill were playing in the same game.

    Why? You'll be out

    We should romp this group - Germany - Who?

    Serbia - defence leaks like an old shower head

    Ghana - No flair, no attack whatsoever

    Simon, Kezman retired from international football before the last WC I think. If not, just after. He was at PSG then was loaned to Zenit who he played decently for (watched his games online) but they decided not to take the option to buy and he went back to PSG. Last I heard he was either negotiating to have his contract nulled or already had and is a free agent. Apparently there's plenty of lower-half Prem interest in him, would love to see him in the Prem again. I miss Batman

    If Essien and Appiah are fit we shouldn't even bother turning up against Ghana, they'll destroy Culina and Grella.
