    God damn the Victory. Dirty *******s. Can't wait to play them next time for some revenge.

    I'm predicting a 3-1 Aussie win tomorrow.

    Liechtenstein could score against us (granted it was an own goal) but I don't see why Kuwait couldn't get a lucky one past us.

    Kuwait at home in 30 to 40 degrees heat is a lot harder then away from home. I can see them scoring a goal 2-1 or 3-1 seem about right.

    Sydney are the 'glamour club' in the A-League and don't mind splashing the cash around.
    Isn't there a salary cap, though?

    Yorke would be their Marquee player who doesn't count in the cap. So they could offer anything for him.

    You can spend an infintite amount on one marquee player.

    EDIT: Mitchell on the ball.

    The less said about the match the better I think

    How the hell did Griffiths miss that chance? An u-12 striker would get crucified for spurning that.

    Skoko, Holman and Sterjovski were all ok in the first half and played some nice balls through but we really had only the one proper chance all game and everyone switched to invisible mode in the second half. It was truly abysmal defending for Kuwait's two goals.

    Thank god we had already qualified, I don't expect Bahrain would be best pleased with the result given we will have a full squad back for the game and they are going to need to get something out of it to qualify now.

    Like the others have said, each club is allowed one "marquee" (terrible american term that) player that is exempt from the salary cap.

    Sydney have splashed out and signed a list of back room staff to go with the young players that they have poached from Queensland (Brosque) and New Zealand (Brockie) last season.

    The other week Sydney were fined $90,000 for players not fulfilling commitments for so called "additional work within the community" that they had been paid for outside of the salary cap.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    No, the Asian cup. Australia were already qualified.

    Early 2008, I think.

    There's nothing official yet, in the way of groups and what not, as FIFA are yet to (in my knowledge) release the coefficients for each confederation for 2010 which will dictate the qualification path for Asia.
