“All the massages I’m getting from the boys is how the good the break has been for them,” said Arnold.

“Their bodies are fresh..."
(Oh SBS/Magoo...you've done it again!)
So...the truth is out. Arnie likes a rub-a-dub for a spot in the squad. :rof:

Second-round draw 17th July, Kuala Lumpur
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_FIFA_World_Cup_qualification_%E2%80%93_AFC_Se cond_Round

Dream draw, purely for the bizzar and weird factor, playing teams we've never or rarely meet is:-
Australia/Lebanon/India/Maldives/Nepal
Imagine the :fap: G&GArmy would have over a Maldives away trip!

Some brilliant arnoldisms in there - laying the excuses down early.

I love that we now have "depth", magically appearing 6 months after not having enough depth to get last the quarters at the asian cup.

And we have up to 4 players in some positions! 4 not particularly good players is still 4 not particularly good players!

I'll say it now - we won't qualify for Qatar

Arnold will blame everyone else but himself and probably keep his job, even though his mates got him the job and even though he will only pick his mates in the team

Boycott the whole corrupt mess that will be this World Cup - wait for the 64 team circus next time

we've played right into their hands.

kathmandu - 1400m above sea level
canberra - 580m above sea level

our boys won't be able to handle that much altitude. they'll have had a lifetime of altitude training.

just forfeit the match now.

I see the ex gypo Stainsbury has signed with a club in Israel.
Question time, what is the league like over there?

Depends. If he's playing for Gazza its pretty rough. Pitch is crap.

On a different note, our Olyroos under the super GVM have slumped to a 1-1 draw with NZ in a warm up game.
The match review reads like a old Jets match report, go forward, get into the box, turn around go back to our keeper, repeat that over and over.

"In my mindset, I believe at the end of this, we will be the greatest Socceroos team ever," Australia head coach Graham Arnold told the media during a teleconference on Friday.

this is your coach guys. enjoy it.

its days like today i thank Griff above that multiple passports exist in real life.

Heck, if the CBs want to leave him free 6 yards from goal all the time I'd just stand there too.

Haven't watched the game but I note that two different publications rated players out of 10. One gave Taggart a 4 and the other an 8.

So, was he crap or good? Discuss

From my Redbull induced haze:

Thought he worked hard, got in some positions but his finishing was pretty poor.

So he was kind of both, but neither if you know what I mean.

Plus it was stinking hot and Leckie got a double so shit was just weird all round.

other results in our group are interesting

Kuwait smacked Nepal 7-0 - which kind of makes it likely that we should also smack them by a cricket score

Taiwan lost to Nepal - so hopefully another cricket score there

Jordan beat Taiwan only 2-1 - so it doesn't look like Taiwan will put up much of a fight

I think we should be disgusted and sack Arnold if we concede a goal in this group

also if we don't concede a goal

I, for one, cannot believe that Fox managed to secure the services of Kevin Muscat for their telecast.

I guess watching paint dry and watching grass grow were ****ing busy tonight and unavailable to make the trip to Canberra.

righto righto righto my friends.
i believe we have found it.
i believe we have found the new Arzani.

i know, early days, but it looks like there is a new shining light on the hill.

Mabil came out, put a good shimmy on some Nepalese cab driver and laid on a good cross.
then it was a Zadkovic special.
then he slipped over.
then he held the ball for 3 1/2 days trying to get his own shot off (which he didnt do)
then he put a free kick into Queanbeyan.
Then he copped one in the nuts.


ye the whole way along the commentators were lapping it up. they were loving the difference he was making off the bench. they were loving his skill on the ball. they were loving his ability to pass the ball to a gold shirt.

can you just imagine the day when we get not one, but TWO Arzani type hyper talents on the park.

FMD the standard of this game was a smidgen greater than the new promo ad for the A League. Whoever gave the green light to that utter crap piece of marketing should hand in there resignation letter like no sooner than yesterday.

Probs another brain fart from that O Rourke, Same peanut who wanted music played at stoppages and pretend flares. Gallop going thank Christ and this peanut should follow him out the door.

Has Arnold been sacked yet??

To accept only winning by 5 against this lot is a joke

Absolute farce if he is still employed by the weekend

Arnie said he selected few A-League players because they were in preseason and not "battle hardened", but picks Bailey Wright who has played 72 mins since his season started.

this has to be the most horrendously woeful pile of tripe we've ever collectively handed jerseys to.
the likes of Borello, Amini, Mabil, Grant ook garbage against a team of cab drivers.
Yet we'll prob fluke our way onto the world stage once more and think we are ok.

my Lord how low we've sunk since the days of '06.
