    Honking is too strong in my opinion. We certainly played poorly at times (first half in particular), our defence was a bit of a shemozzle and I felt the through balls could have been more direct. There were a few moments where we carved them up and looked really good.

    It was a game of deflections - behich copped two that pretty much left him stranded or in an impossible situation. Taggart would have had a goal if the arm of their keeper had been one millimetre to the left. Tags scores and I reckon the game was ours.

    yeah I wouldn't go as far as honking - more just not switched on - we certainly let Japan control the game and didn't take it to them or put them under any real pressure on the ball

    this was our most difficult away game of the qualifying campaign, with our weakest squad in a long time - we did ok when we're probably getting ahead of ourselves based on results to easier opposition (in the previous eleven games)

    this was still clicks ahead of the bend-over-and-cop-it days of Pim

    that was a very sexy backheel from hrustic. unfortunately it went to leckie who did as leckie does and caressed it with his first touch to a mere 15m away from him.

    the second half has late bullshit Saudi goal written all over it

    the shithousery hasn't been as bad I expected though - but maybe because I know the levels they usually sink to

    Wow what a surprise who would have thought that the ****ing gypo would be out of his depth coaching at this level except everyone in the world who watched him last time coach at this level.

    Has the scathing Robbie Slater article been posted yet?

    True about Arnold..

    Although, I hope you are joking about Slater..
    That prick would never do a hatchet job on his best mate.. He's probably too busy penning an article about how great the gypos will be when his son gets a run, and perhaps lining up interviews with his mates Ninko, Rhyno, Wilko, Bobo, Seafood Brosque, etc..

    was always going to happen with this bunch of lower division players and Arnold

    this ain't 2005, our youth development has lagged for a very long time and now it's catching up with us
