    just wanted to know if anyone is going to the soccer tomorrow?

    Anyone got any opinion on the result?

    I think probably 2-1 Aus, meaning we won't qualify.

    Oh btw, if anyone can think of anything i can write on a banner, be prepared to see it on t.v

      You thinkso?

      You have to bare in mind that uruguay aren't even beaten by the likes of brazil and aregintina in that stadium.

      I think australia will win but not by enough for them to qualify. Not getting that away goal is really going to cost them.

          If they picked the ball up, ran with it, tackled ( like men ) and scored tries then I might be a little more interested in it ( sorry - I am in a mood )

            Being born and raised on nrl i'm at the point now where i can barely watch it anymore. Unless the sharks are playing, then i'm still only semi interested in it.
            Soccer is actually alot rougher game then you would think. It's just all this diving in top level that makes it look so bad. In lower divisons you rarely see anyone hit the ground.

            I think the Oz team for this match is still hush hush. But i'd imagine it would be pretty similar. Except bresciano will get more game time, thompson less.
            All the big name euro players will be there viduka, kewel, emerton, cahill etc.

              OK OK - I will have the TV on and have the game running and glance at it as I am belting the hell out of my Mame machine (still ) playing 1942.

              I will probably glance around just when someone is feining a trip or injury

                I understand where your coming from, i used to feel exactly the same. Wasn't till i played it i really took an interest in it. When i played league and especially touch and oz tag, i realised how boring league was.

                Did anyone see the urguay papers? with pictures of a kangroo drawn on the road run over. And the inflatable kangroo with the arrow through the neck that they had at the game?

                I need good idea's to get back at them, i got nothing lol

                HAHA just looking at the paper, Socceroo's vs Uruguay national diving team. That's clever, why can't i think of something like that

                  Can't predict a score however I do not think we will qualify - which will raise the ugly spectre of the whole Oceania needs their own berth etc etc. If Australia can't beat the 5th team from South America, we shouldn't be there.

                  However, Australia really has no "national" team. The team we have put together is a mixture of stars and people who are way past their prime. Steve Corica and Mark Schwartzer were at their peak 7 - 10 years ago. Australia is building though and I wish them the best of luck

                    The south american teams are by far the strongest though. That's why when it comes to qualifying they get the most spots.

                    Australia will end up qualifying through asia next time around and take on the likes of japan. Instead of winning oceania and then taking on SA.

                    Your right about the team being past their prime, they rely heavily on again stars that play in europe. Thompson is probably one of the best players that plays in the A-league and he was totally outclassed against urguay.
