    Broke my self-imposed Daily Telegraph ban today & bought the paper for the World Cup liftout.

    Last time I bought it, it was $1.20....bloody $1.60 now.

    Go The Socceroos :soccer:!!

    It's going to be fun over here on a few levels. Last time I was in Spain the Euro Cup was on, Spain was already out but it was still a blast around game time, especially with sentimental favourites Portugal achieving the unexpected.

    I don't know whether to watch it or watch my tapes of the recent royal wedding.

    Spose the highlights of the sookarh might be okay but f**k me watching some of those diving whingers. Those ones that wave their hands around like Cam Smith at the ruck. Just wish someone would plant a straight right .... kaapowww .... right in the kisser.

    If there is ever a good time to face France, it’s probably first up.

    Have to catch em off guard.

    Ange was all about attack.
    Bert will be about keeping France to nil. Theyre slow starters and will win the next 2 games.
    So a point of them is a great start.

    Some people are very hospitable in Amsterdam, you don't even have to knock.

    I'll be in Barcelona Friday, where I watched the France v Germany semi last time. Very buzzy place to be and I was staying across from the French Embassy, I didn't know this until they won of course.

    Great night.

    C’arn the Roos!


    Think we can get a surprise result and go close to progressing. Peru is no better than us. Denmark are okay.

    My money is on Germany to win it against Brazil in the final.

    Do the ruskies have anything like those Souff Afrikanas Veevarhvousey things.

    I remember trying to make some sort of an effort to watch that world cup but those far can horns gave me the shits big time.

    Some very optimistic talk in here about the Aussies.

    We are going to be lucky to score a goal,let alone get a point.

    It’ll be France and Denmark that’ll go through, not us.

    Anyone who believes we’ll get through the group stage needs to lay off the pipe.

    Well buddy, I hate to tell you, the Spanish coach who knows a hell of a lot more about the game than anyone on here, has said Australia will get through in his opinion.

    You just never know.

    Up until 2016 I thought you guys would never win a comp, LOL.

    Up until 2010 I didn't think you guys would either!
    Oh well, one premiership each. Onwards and upwards!

    I have a mate over there .
    He has put a pic on Facebook of him and Daryl Braithwaite together outside the Kremlin.
    Apparently Daz is in the same tour group from what I can gather.

    I can send you a DVD I have about extreme sports

    It has 1 hour segments on paint drying, water evaporating, hibernating bears and a bonus 4 hours of watching the tide change at Fort Denison.

    Want it?

    Thanks for the kind offer Cap'n. That's what I love about this forum, deadset, we stick together like shit to a nappy.

    It's okay though, I got me a copy of that particular DVD through fake_jerseys. It was a bargain I got it for two fiddy delivered to me door. My only complaint was that Fort Denison was a bit blurey and it appeared only about 130 metres off the neilson bay beach
