    So there's a fair amount of dislike for the Japanese manager in Japan right now, isn't there?

    For the team they have right now they should be absolutely killing it. Ok granted it is Brazil, but losing to Bulgaria, 1-1 against Australia, 1-0 against Iraq, not a great set of results. You can see the potential is there when you watch them as well, but there's something missing at the moment.

    I feel they are stale and in need of a younger tougher group. Their skills are superior to ours though.

    One area I feel Australia are the best in Asia is between the ears. Our mentality is better than theirs and everyone else in Asia. Our technical skills may not be their but this area we reign supreme

    The game in Brisbane when we were 1-0 down and Milligan got sent off the Japanese expected us to fold like a deck of cards. Why cause everyone else in Asia would have but NO we rallied and got a draw out of it. Our lack of technical skills versus their silky skills should see us get flogged when we play them but we hold our own everytime.

    Want proof of their mentality issues. Watch their tikka takka around the park. Beautiful on the eye and not easy to achieve. The aspect they struggle with is shooting a ball into the goal. Why???

    The skill sets that allow for the tikka takka is the exact same thing that allows one to put their foot onto a ball and manipulate it into a net. What ****s the Japanese is they don't have the composure and self belief when under pressure to do what they need when shooting at goal.

    Money can't teach this
