Such a crap qualifying system that means Australia have no chance of qualifying, yeah?
Australia to get drawn in England's group in 5....4....3....
and beat us in 2....1....

Congratulations, Socceroos (do they still call them that? I'm stuck in a time warp in 1974).

One thing we really ought to be very concerned about though, is the fact that thousands of Australians will be heading for Germany in 2006, although it's open to conjecture just how many will stay in the country long enough to be able to see any football. Those German police don't mess about when it comes to the manacles.

You see, there are over 300 types of yummy bread baked in Germany, and the temptation just might be too much for some.

Lol Recoba - Uruguay have 'a devine right' to go through - will look funny if his team gets knocked out.

It's called 'Parody'.

It was deliberately designed to take the Mickey out of Adamc who said "44 penalties in the game. What's that all about?', an obvious Americanism. The 'You Are Gay' reference is just throwing in the ubiquitous Simpsons reference, which is where I get all of my information about America, naturally.

Incidentally, I still get all of my information about the North East from watching old "When the booert comes in" reruns.
I'm sorry, that went way over my head. I've no idea what you're talking about, I was just asking why there were apparently 44 penalties. Apologies if I've made some soccer-related faux pas. (Btw, andyc is not Adamc).

I think they've been rebranded the Footballroos in the last few weeks. Which just sounds stupid.

They've rechristened the sport to football, so surely it should be footballoos?

Doesn't quite roll off the tongue, mind...

I think the issue was that a "penalty" in soccer is an extremely rare event... there were in fact 0 in tonight's game, aside from the penalty shoot out. The word you'd be looking for would be foul or perhaps free kick.

Anyway, I doubt Eddie meant anything nasty by it.

On another note: WE'RE GOING TO THE ****ING WORLD CUP!!

A penalty is one of those things you had at the end of the game, or a direct free kick from 12 yards given for a foul inside the penalty area.

There were possibly 44 free kicks in the game, but only 9 penalties.

Oh, just forget it.

Nah they are still called by the general public as the socceroos, but offical they are the Australian National Team and don't have the nickname anymore. But who cares were through, maybe oneday Sri Lanka can get through. :D
