Roos Pounce On Oman

Roos Pounce On Oman

As has been the case several times in their recent Asian Cup and World Cup Qualifying campaigns, the Socceroos once again left it late to pinch all three points.. only this time it was with 10 men and Oman fell victim. Press Association: The experience of the Australians helped them to win as they managed...
O'man Those Socceroos Were Lucky!

O’man Those Socceroos Were Lucky!

What amazes me about today’s game is that Pim Verbeek sent out a near full strength Aussie team… and they struggled… againt Oman… again! And whilst Verbeek continues to persist with his conservative approach to games and a one striker formation, he should be thanking his lucky starts that Timmy Cahill delivered the goods again...
Cahill Two The Rescue... Again!

Cahill Two The Rescue… Again!

Thinking they stood a chance in front of 70,000 fans, Japan showed up to this match without their giant killing harpoons and got stomped all over by who now seems to be their biggest arch nemesis, good ‘ol Timmy Cahill… didn’t they learn anything from Godzilla!? When asked about his scoring record against Nippon, this...
Prediction - Australia v Japan

Prediction – Australia v Japan

Oh, herro. Great to see you agai, this tie in Merboure.With only a couple hours before kick off, I wonder if the Socceroos “makeshift” defense consisting of Lucas Neill, Jade North, Matthew Spiranovic, Rhys Williams or Shane Stefanuto, will be able to handle the Japanese onslaught that put a ship-load of pressure on Australia last...
Bring The FIFA World Cup To Australia

Bring The FIFA World Cup To Australia

I’m really excited by the propsect of Australia hosting a World Cup. It’s one of those things you wonder about as a kid, never actually thinking that your country will be in the running to host one day. Well, I guess the time is now and it’s important everyone get’s behind this bid. Australia 2018-2022...
Prediction - Australia v Bahrain

Prediction – Australia v Bahrain

While things have momentarily slowed down at my end, they seem to be moving along quite nicely for the now qualified Socceroos… so I’m hoping that they actually come out and kick the shit out of Bahrain tonight and put on an entertaining performance for the home fans, who will want nothing more than to...
'Seth Efrika' Here We Come Eh

‘Seth Efrika’ Here We Come Eh

Average performance and blasé celebrations aside, the Socceroos and Australians alike are rejoicing at the thought of going to their second consecutive World Cup final in South Africa next year… and I guess none more so than CEO of Football Federation Australia and ‘gleaming in smug pride’ Mr. Ben Buckley: [Goal] Qualifying this time around,...
Prediction - Qatar v Australia

Prediction – Qatar v Australia

I was lucky enough to watch the Socceroos train in Dubai a couple days ago, before flying they flew over to Qatar to potentially qualify for ‘Seth Efrica’ 2010… and while I quietly watched the intensity of their training drills from the empty bleachers, in no less than 35-40 dergree Celsius heat mind you, all...

Almost There!

After a shitty first half, the Socceroos began the second half like their testies were on fire (I’m assuming Pim had something to do with that) and once ‘the saviour’ Josh Keneddy scored that wicked header, shit really got firing! Matter of fact it got so crazy at one stage, I was almost waiting for...

Prediction – Australia v Uzbekistan

With only an hour or so till kick off, I don’t wanna be the rotten apple here, but I can see Australia conceding it’s first goal of the campaign today. And that’s not to say that they won’t play well (not like those A-Leaguearoos), I just think that the Uzbeks will come out firing and...

Socceroos Qualify If They Win

If results go their way, the Socceroos could be one of the first teams to qualify for South Africa [TWG] …but does qualifying so early hold as much significance as having it all come down to a gripping two match playoff, with penalties to decide the winner? [Watch this]… it doesn’t even come close! Armani,...

Danny Allsopp…

The F1 GP is getting ready to rip-roar through the city of Melbourne this weekend and there are going to be a load of media shindigs to attend. So why not get in on the action I hear you ask? Well it’ll be hard to beat Melbourne Victory’s favourite lemon, Danny Allsopp, cause like an...
