    Carney wins you in games, McKay keeps you in games through hard work. Both are better options then Ryan Griffiths though.

    How does the New Zealand Knights justify a spot in the A-League?

    The fact that All Whites players don't want to play for them say it all for me. Atleast with the Warriors and NZ Breakers, you have a lot of Kiwis interntaionals that want to play for them. If the team was giving the opportunity for young kiwis to play professional football, then they justify their place, but they continue to buy crap overseas players, over young kiwis. But these guys aren't even winning them games, if they don't perform next season, it might be time for re-location, but i think they might have some 5 year contract that says they can't move anywhere.

    I think they're still in for another season, but i think there's talk for more clubs to be added to the A-League in 2008.

    Asian Cup 2007 groups just announced:

    Group A - Thailand, Iraq, Oman, Australia
    Group B - Vietnam, UAE, Qatar, Japan
    Group C - Malaysia, China, Uzbekistan, Iran
    Group D - Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Korea Republic

    Looks like Australia and Japan got the easy groups, but Iraq or Oman could push us maybe if we play really crappy.

    Geez this situation with the Knights has become unbelieveable.

    Now Melbourne didn't win more then 4-0 I don't know. They could/should have ran up 6 or 7.

    It looks like NZ Soccer is trying to get invloved to make sure they keep a side in NZ, so it could get better. They got some decent players, just no depth or out and out quality.

    And Hockey...Not a big fan of the Australia Cricket team anymore cus so predicatble, they always win. I probably supported them more back in the early 90s, atleast it was 50/50 beat. I always prefer underdogs, support Man U more now Chelsea brought some premiership, as well Sydney FC now Melbourne are so good.

    Australia would be the favorites, cus they are the top ranked side in Asia. But Japan wouldn't be far behind.
