Thirty Two Years Of Heartbreak Is Over

YOU BLOODY BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Australia is off to the World Cup in Germany in 2006. What an epic game tonight in Sydney for the return leg after we lost to Uruguay 1-0 on Saturday night, their time.

It is sad that the only Australian captain in a World Cup Finals appearance (Germany 1974), Johnny Warren, died before seeing his dream of Australia reaching the World Cup Finals come to fruition. SBS paid a great compliment to him before tonight's match started.

The Australians completely outplayed their South American counterparts who were too focussed on defence. I didn't think that we could keep them scoreless for the whole match and if that happened we would have to kick three goals to qualify. Yes, I was a doubter but there was no way that I was going to miss the match. If we are on the pitch we have a chance.



Now that the governing body in Australia uses the term Football instead of Soccer I guess our Socceroos are going to be called the Footballroos. That positively rolls off the tongue when you consider the all-Australian names of the players who took to the park tonight - Schwarzer, Grella, Popovic, Skoko, Kewell, Viduka, Bresciano, Emerton, Neill, Chipperfield, Cahill, Aloisi, Culina and Vidmar. They left the more-difficult-to-pronounce on the bench.

I bet the guy who wrote this at the Bangkok Post is eating his words.

Look out Brazil, Germany, France, the pussies in the England team and any other teams already qualified for World Cup 2006 - the rampaging Aussies are coming.

Bloody nice way to kick off the holiday.

This has had front page treatment for two days! I think there are more important things to put on the front page.
