    Fireworks go off within meters of the players. Classy stuff from the Omani fans.

    Commentator put it nicely. "Our bottles of water got confiscated, but not the fireworks."

    Oman players getting frustrated here. Great to see

    2-1 FT. Fantastic win Roos

    Was a top comeback.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Pretty annoyed that bloke only got 4 matches for manhandling a referee.

    Far too lenient imo.

    Without having seen footage of the incident, I have to say I completely agree. Referee's aren't given anywhere near enough protection in football.

    So what's our chances fellas?

    Grouped alongside Germany, Serbia and Ghana for the WC

    Obviously Germany will go in as favourites but they are notorious for being slow starters.I reckon we can sneak in 2nd as Serbia and Ghana are both dangerous customers but beatable.

    Much tougher task this time around. We got the second toughest group, and we're a weaker team this time around imo. We desperately need a striker who can hold the ball up (I miss Viduka Can't believe he used to get crucified for not scoring enough) if we're going to be hell bent on 4-5-1 (or 4-2-3-1 w/e). Germany and Serbia will laugh and collect their clean sheets if we play Kennedy alone up front. He's decent, but he's not a good target man, and has succeeded against Asian teams largely because of their inability to deal with his height and strength.

    We have to hope for massive tournaments from Timmeh, Harry and hope McDonald starts scoring in a yellow jumper imo.

    I think Ghana are beatable, but will be very tough on their home continent, with assumed good support. Hopefully Serbia repeat their 06 jitters and Germany start off the tournament slowly.

    FMD if the AFL and NRL conspire to sabotage our WC bid I will burn their ****ing houses down.

    They've got 12 years (most likely) to sort out the re-orgainsation of their competitions - 12 years FFS. Stupid ****ing ****s whinging about it, ignoring the benefits they get re. refurbished and/ or new stadia.

    ****ing arseholes. Honestly, the amount of short-sightedness in this country never ceases to amaze me. No wonder Howard won 4 terms.

    They're just positioning themselves for compensation if the WC goes ahead, although the AFL threat to cancel the season is pretty stupid. NRL in particular should be gunning for big upgrades to existing rectacular stadiums, particularly in possible expansion areas like Adelaide or Perth.

    The AFL's beef is that it would lose the MCG for about 4 month as it gets kitted out to host soccer matches (signage, seating etc)

    The NRL is just being ****s, take a season on the road and play in regional areas (Adopt a region for a season perhaps), plenty of chances for expansion and facility improvement as well.

    Super 15 not really affected, can just easily change the aussie home games to away games or have them all played at ballymore.

    If the NRL think they can expand into Adelaide or Perth, they are dreaming.

    That was just a beat up by andrew demetriou. FFA have since confirmed that the MCG would need to be out of action for the AFL for 8 weeks at most.

    Awta. Adelaide is likely a bridge too far for the moment at least though.
