    Aww, what a cute dog :)

    The atmosphere at Fed Square must have been awesome, especially in the last eight minutes- looks like there was no shortage of flares, either ;) Goal after goal...it was incredible.

    However, I can't believe Takahara got away with shoving Schwarzer like that.

    I got all my (major) exams done last week so I might head into Melbourne to watch the game tonight. Are they showing it at Fed Square?

    I will - win lose or draw.

    Preferably win - but even that wouldn't guarantee us a spot in the 16. How cruel is that!

    huh. 0-2 loss.

    Oh well. As long as Brazil beats Japan we only need to draw with Croatia to make it through.

    If it weren't for the 9:30 exam that day I'd be sorely tempted.

    God almighty PoT, I'M EXCITED!!

    You just get the sense - the pat on the back, the tickle behind the ear, the itch on the date - that something magnificent is happening in Australia at the moment, something consigned to sport yes, but magnificent nonetheless. Soccer is bloody flourishing, people are interested in the game and getting up at ungodly hours to watch 22 blokes go at a round ball. Many, in fact, are making the effort to get to Fed Square and hug and kiss and lick the nearest punter next to them the moment Kewelly or Johnny get one in the back of the net. The correspondence I'm getting via sms from people who normally couldn't give a STUFF about sport, let alone soccer, points to something of a CULTURAL REVOLUTION starting among young Australians. Perhaps historians will look back on these days with relish, suggesting that this was the 'dress-rehersal' to the revolution that reformed this fledging nation into something even more wonderful - twice now, we have had 10,000 odd people leave Fed Square and INSTINCTIVELY march towards the direction of Parliament House. Is the World Cup, LIVE from GERMANY, pushing upon us the more admirable virtues of SOCIALISM and EGALITARIANISM? Are the punters sniffing the air and sensing CHANGE? I challenge you to give me another suitable explaination as to why we the proletariat are marching ensemble to Parliament.

    Vive Socialism! Vive Socceroos! Vive la Revolution!

    PoT, your thoughts?

    Yes, down with those capitalist pigs...:p

    The media should never, ever say we 'only' need a draw, Kalac's fumble almost cost us the match. Felt vulnerable without Schwarzer.

    Bring on Italy!

    Don't agree with any criticism of Kalac; the only ones that ought to be condemned are those on the coaching panel, which includes his Highness Guus. While schwarza had a dodgy opening he did improve against Brazil, HE should have played against Croatia. Poor bloody Kalac had had no real game time prior - he hardly had to do anything against Greece, his only full game. He had had no experience at such an intense level. Given all his hard work for Australia it would have been a real shame if we'd lost, not because we would have been knocked out, but because he would have been blamed for losing it for us, a la Baggio and *that* penalty miss in the 94 Cup final. But thank Gucking Fod, it turned out alright.

    Still, you can't deny he'll never play another match for Australia this tournament. :p

    Great game. Loved every minute of it. Except when it looked like we'd lose. Those minutes weren't so great. Mhmm.
