    Yep, they just decided that they needed another 6 in a row there. During that time Messi just sliced through about 5 players and almost set up Aguero. I love how commercial stations treat football here.

    Jesus Archie, you should've scored.

    Indeed, Quality finish from the big man. Credit to Troisi for setting him up though, was a great bit of play. We did well to go into half-time 0-0.

    Should be banned from showing it IMO. I mean those who do give a stuff about football know the "mainstream media" only care about it when it was time to jump on the bandwagon, IE Australia at the 2006 World Cup.

    Not often one can unambiguously support an Aussie national team, but this is one of those. 0-0 would be a great result.

    Absolutely but 7 is comfortably the worst. At least 9 gave the World Cup decent coverage when they had the rights to it and 10 report the game pretty well on their news and Sports Tonight.

    Seven however is just plain dire, having officials admit that the only reason they bought the NSL rights was so that they could give it minimal coverage to protect their AFL rights.

    Will be stoked if we can somehow keep this team scoreless. Probs should have scored at least once also if not for some kwality archie finishing. Have nfi why Niki Rukavysta was selected either.

    Deadset, Arnold is such a poor manager. How Kilkenny has managed to stay out there is beyond me, and there's no way that Niki Rukaetc. is a better option than even say Michael Zullo.

    Ruka is a deadset donkey, all workrate no guile or composure. I remember watching the A-League with mates and laughing at the bloke trying to dribble.

    How Burns and Djite are not in this squad is beyond me.
