Australian Soccer Thread (A-League/FFA Cup/Socceroos)


#4545

I checked and it was Harper series 1 and Fossie series 2.


#4546

This is now 3 times out of our last 4 World Cups, we’ve gone there with a new coach.

It’s f*cking dissapointing


#4547

Not too many teams where that isn’t the case TBH. (Germany exepted.)


#4548

This whole var thing is a joke. And you have incompetent refs deciding the whole thing as well.

Fk off


#4549

So apparently Peru could be booted form the world cup?


#4550

Any Inca-ling why?

Or is it because Inca Cola is yellow, not like other colas.

I’ll have to Peru’s the reasons why.


#4551

Lol. Italy are already claiming that they’re in.


#4552

So are the USA. Should give it to the Kiwis for the lols, although the have a good a claim as the others.


#4553

Can’t see it happening TBH.
Peru will go to Russia


#4554

#4555

What time’s the actual draw?


#4556

Around 2am EST Saturday for memory


#4557

Straight swap - Sam Kerr for Robbie Kruse in the Russia squad. Would be a major upgrade in skill, goal scoring nous and toughness


#4558

What is everyone thinking about who will be in our group?

I would like something similar to Poland, England, Denmark.

I reckon we will get either Germany/Brazil or France, Uruguay and Iran.*

  • Not sure if we can draw another Asian opponent though in which case I think the Swedes might be our other nation to play.

#4559

If we play any of Spain/Germany/Brazil/France we’ll probably get flogged.


#4560

We can’t play another Asian team.
