Haden will be gone by the end of the day.
Then he can say what he really thinks
McCully’s going to have a busy few days.
Because surely he has to sack Haden from that RWC Ambassador thing now?
If you're nominating Paul the Octopus for Super City Mayor (and perhaps Minister of the World Cup too), I'll happily second that.
That’s exactly what I’m proposing. Decisive, always right, and transparent in his decision making.
He could think up a new name for Party Central while he’s at it.
Get the octopus to decide where it goes and be done with it.
Flash back to the away leg of the All Whites tie against Bahrain. We’d held on for 90 minutes in 40 deg heat, and had one foot on the plane to South Africa.
Bahrain got a break just on our side of half way, and headed off for goal. What did Nelsen do? He brought the player down from behind. He got a yellow for it but he knew exactly what he was doing and decided it was the right thing to do for the team.
I’ve never seen him getting bagged for that.
The best villians are the smart ones.
Ballack’s absence is the best thing that could’ve happened to Germany IMHO. Because they sure play as a team. And if he’d been there we’d have been robbed of seeing Muller too.
Say what you like about the ethics of what Suarez did; that was some quick thinking
To show how cut throat the tournament is.
USA were a minute from going home.
Now they’re got as good a chance as anyone of making the semis
Smeltz is a very good poacher. Don’t expect to see him back in the A League next season.
a known associate of this fine blog was making it about the Socceroos just last week.
Heh; I can assure you I plagiarised it too.
And here’s something else to repeat. Now that every team has played 2 matches a table can be done of all teams to date.
And look; we’re 21st equal at the World Cup. Equal with Italy too, and one place ahead of England.
