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


#5327

Dominating possession but can’t get the goal

Can’t let this go to penalties

Kruse has done the biggest load of nothing since coming on, should have fresh legs but barely been sighted

Come on Australia I want to go to bed!

Penalties it is, just torture watching these


#5328

From what I saw we didn’t look like scoring. Very ordinary performance going forward. Looked toothless. All down to the penalty shootout now.


#5329

For about 25min in the 2nd half we looked pretty dangerous, since then it’s been a lot of possession for not much at all. We really lack that moment of quality


#5330

Sigh behich

NICE RYAN!

NICE AGAIN RYAN!!!

Leckie finishes it!! We go through to the next round!!!


#5331

Super job by Matt Ryan! Two big saves from 4 pens.


#5332

So uncreative going forward for large portions, no dare. Well done Ryan on getting us through.


#5333

wtf happened to the matildas coach?

david gallop is truely the master of incompetence, no idea how he got the job at the FFA.


#5334

I suspect there were a couple of unhappy players which happens in every sporting team in the world. It seems like the coach is a tough task master which again is common in the sporting world. I am unsure that using an outside consultancy as part of the decision making process is the way to go. It’s a pity as the current team should have made the semi finals on current form.


#5335

Absolute gun.


#5336

There’s a level of intrigue about his dismissal it seems.

Somethings not being said.


#5337

saying a lot without saying very much, aren’t they? it’ll come out eventually i guess.


#5338

Wonderful pass to set up UAEs goal…shocking.


#5339

Terrible. And geez I hate Arnold…


#5340

Surprised we got as far as we did.


#5341

Will we ever not look surprised when there’s a shot set up to take,… and not panic and go early, or faff about and miss the chance?

Seems to happen 80% of the chances, … and there were so many chances created. Bluddy frustrating.


#5342

Graham Arnold


#5343

Yes, but also… Milos Degenek


#5344

Arnold and the FFA can go Fark themselves


#5345

As underwhelming an appointment to national football coach as will ever be made


#5346

In 2006 I thought this nation would climb gradually to be a very good football squad. 13 years later we have gone backwards with nothing to look forward to.
