Australia vs Uraguay

It's that time of the quadrant where everyone in the country turns into a ravishing soccer nut for 7 days and then ducks back into their shell. Or is it? Is it possible that Australia can knock over Uraguay and move toward the World Cup of 2006?

I'm putting my money on "yes", if they can prevent any really early goals tommorow morning. Despite being slightly better on paper, and definite favourites it will be interesting to see wether Australia can cast off the "curse" or "voodoo witchspell" which has supposedly prevented them from constructing 180 minutes of quality football once every four years.

The shocking thing is... I'm almost supporting them on this one.

I think we have Buckleys. Doesn't stop me from thinking the Uraguayans are the biggest bunch of pussies ever to walk on a pitch. Well, maybe not the players, but fuck me. Can they whine anymore???? Pity they managed to organise their flights. They've only had years to organise it.
Pussies.

You have Hiddink, so knocking over Uruguay should be a piece of cake....

My abiding memory of Uruguay comes from the 2002 World Cup, when they had a sub all ready and prepared to come on and Dario Silva refused to go off.

Australia has the chances to win, but it will depend mostly of the game in Uruguay, southamericans are strong at home

Australia needs to play much better than what they played today in Montevideo. They did not even have a shot on goal and they need much more than that to make it to a World Cup.

And the spelling is UrUguay, some people need to study some geography...

Like Americans in general, and their spelling?

I set the alarm to wake up for the match. I watched most of the first half until UrUguay got their goal. I then decided I would much rather find out the result later and went back to sleep.

Ah, I mean no disprespect to any yanky friends and none to Uruguay, except those behind the bull which has plagued these 2 games.


Sorry to hear you set your alarm for that, beg

Here's hoping! So my understanding is that if we win 2-1 Uruguay still win as an away goal is worth two home goals? If so - GODDAMMIT BOYS! DEFENCE! DEFENCE!

I can't wait for New Zealand to make World Cup 2010.

For now: GO URUGUAY! KICK AUSSIE ARSE!
