        Had a laugh Grendel even though i guess its tougue in cheek if its not there the Aus Soccer team.

        They were lucky and scored a late goal in extra time to grab a 1-1 draw. I dont think there handling the weather over there very well, they were dripping with sweat singing the national anthem. Tim cahill scored the equalizer to save us again as he did in germany 12 mths ago.

        They play Iraq next on friday.

          I believe the Baristaroos are the Australian Barista team that take on NZ in the Transtasman competition.

            Looks like they could have used a few coffees. Barely sneaked in a goal in injury time to draw with Oman.

              More like ice coffees I think, to cool them down and pick them up.

                  The Socceroos second game is on tonight with thr roos taking on Iraq. Theoretically it should be an easier game for them but well see soon, hopefully the have gotten used to the climate.

                    Theyre struggling bad with the stifling conditions over there.

                    I know our players have their own club commitments, but those who can afford to take an earlier week off should have to go there early to condition their bodies for an extra week.

                      do or die tonight.... (wel not really, but they need to put in a good display) after thailand went and whipped oman 2-0...
                      i dont have Foxtel, so its down to the pub.. which is fine now.. because i can watch it on the big screen with other supporters with NO smoke...!!!! brilliant.

                      if this match was being played in western europe/UK id have us up for 3-0 ... but being in the sauna that is SEA and our somewhat unsettled defence with Moorey and Chippers missing.. im expecting/hoping to pull clear at 1-0.

                      good luck lads.!

                        Lost 3-1 to Iraq. Talk about killing expectations.

                          Nnnoooo.......

                          Dont have fox either so only just watched the game now... well actually still going but ive seen enough. After the start to the second half i thought we were going to smash them.

                          Im going to say this time that Thailand will be the victors so then maybe they win.

                            Australia needs to win against Thailand by 2 goals to progress...Im sorry, but Australia has royally screwed their Asian Cup debut....and its a bit embarrassing!!!

                              The game should be starting about now (no FOX dont get me started on that) so im getting it tapped. Hopefully they play to potential and whip Thailand and Iraq beat Oman otherwise the two goals wont cut it.

                              It might be a bit embarrassing for the players but they were hyped up beyond belive, my father in law is a bit of a betting man and he commented on the odds that the socceroos were given and said that it was unheard of. Japan usually wins this tornament or at least as been in the finals and because we beat them in the world cup we were expected to be a shoe-in. After all they did only win 1 game at the World Cup but they did play very well.

                              They joined this comp to get better competion to what there used to, even if they do bomb out this time they will know what needs to happen next time.

                              P.S. At 10.30 on Sun on SBS David Beckams first game for his knew L.A. team is on, lets see if hes worth his $350 Million dollar price tag.
