Social, enough of the antagonistic remarks, it's getting extremely tiresome seeing it take threads off-track. There's a difference between having a difference of opinion with someone, and posting absolute crap that serves no other purpose than to stir other posters up.

@ Social.

Haha not at all. I quite like the Australian football team FTR and I'd actually quite like for them to do well. I just wanted Ghana to win because we've been there a bit and the people are lovely and they really love their football.

Not sure about the gay-hairdressers 'joke' though, was it some insult that I don't understand?

Oh yeah, you're a massive **** as well
.
PF, as I said in another thread in this sub-forum, comments like the bolded one are simply not on. Consider this an official warning to cut it out now.

Stoked with the win, shame Germany couldn't pile on a few more for us though :( (or that we couldn't nab a few more)

Top effort from the lolman!

australianism, eh?
Yeah, should have run with the English style of unrealistically thinking our team would win, then poured a bucket of **** on them when they started playing to their real abillity...

Mind you, am supporting England from here on in, shameful though that is.

Yes I know you have. Was referring more to the WC hysteria I saw over there in general, in the lead up.

And I suppose if the Krauts win we can say we were bounced in the last two WCs by the teams that went on to win it.

Haha, it's even worse here now, trust me. Hate the flags on cars etc... Such a bad country at being patriotic.

*sigh*

You're drunk mate, and that's out of character for you frankly so I'll let it go.

But I'm not upset really, they played all right, did as well as they could, save the Germany game.

Fwiw, it seems your countryman Sledger agrees with me. I'll take some solace from that :)

Germany not a great side, think it is 50/50, will probably go to penalties I think.

The idea of England winning the thing is of course (always has been) ridiculous especially with the draw we have now got.

(Grecian still right though)

Comparing where the Aussie game was 10 years ago to now, great achievement. Hopefully spur on the domestic game. Theres the talent, only have to look at the amount of players in the Prem (personally I'd take Cahill into the utd team anyday, and Schwartzers been one of the best keepers in the league, bar his drop a bollock moments he used to have at boro)... Bit more emphasis at home and in 4-8 years time could be a real show (look how the Yanks have come on in the last 10 years).

Problem is the competition against other sports, but getting a World Cup to host would be a huge boost. As much as I'd love to see one in England, if it went down under instead, well not too much of a bad thing (though I still haven't forgiven you for stealing the Olympics from Manchester in 2000)

Yeah an Aussie world cup would be good, they should also be pretty much guaranteed qualification every time as well now and that has got to be a help.

BARNES OUT
I'm worried about qualifying for the next WC tbh. Cahill will still be there but he's defs getting on. Kewell, Bresc, Schwarzer, Neill, Emerton all not likely to be there, and the replacements aren't particularly special.
 

Pothas

Not a great deal of competition is there though?

South Korea and Japan obviously decent but not a great deal after that.

Would think China will improve at some point, but no signs of that yet.

Next WC Australia will play in is if we host one. Which we wont, because we dont have the stadiums to support it.

Didn't Australia beat England the last time they played soccer? Doesn't that mean, by your rationale, that Australia are better than England at soccer?

Good on ya, Aussie. (Y)

A shame you won't be joining New Zealand in the knockout stages. :p

(Serious and all, football probably the only sport where you'll see me supporting Australia)
