    Prepare to be destroyed by our master plan of boring you to death!

    We will play 4-2-3-1, keeps things very tight in defence, press a high line, and look to score from set pieces with Everton star Cahill, and J-League leading scorer/beanpole/Jesus look-alike Kennedy.

    As I said, it's extreemly boring, and I hate it; but it does get results.

    One player the USA should steer well clear of is Grella; puts in very robust challenges to say the least. It's not worth getting injured in a warm-up.

    Hey! I like Australia! Is Kewell playing? Should be an interesting game.

    I like Australia too (obviously), but I hate the style we play.

    Extreemly doubtfull Kewell will play; he's struggling to overcome injury.

    He may not even play our first match against Germany, but instead be saved for Ghana, and Serbia.

    Kewell is one of my favorite players. It is too bad his career was ruined by Liverpool. There were reports that he had an injury during the later parts of his Liverpool stint and they never did anything about it.

    Was one of the best players in the world (I'm talking top 10) when fully fit, and firing.

    Unfortunately he has been destroyed by injury.

    Liverpool completely mismanaged his injuries.

    To the point that he hired his own physio.

    Liverpool were so impressed with the Socceroos physio, they went out and hired him.

    The only thing I hate about Australia is the fact that they call it 'soccer'. ;)

    Hey, you Poms invented the word soccer, so don't blame us.

    I hate that people call it football, when the correct name is Association Football.

    Actually most media outlets in Australia now call it football; but the name Socceroos has such brand recognition, they're not going to change it now.

    USA should be slightly less entertaining than usual (I'm keeping this relative) with Clark and Bradley as the central pairing. Hopefully Clark is on today and Bradley can actually get involved in the attack.

    Don't you ever dare call an Australian, English!

    It's a good way to get punched in the face.

    Kickoff delayed because the Seppo tv networks can't get their shit together, and start on time.

    I have a lot of Australian and Kiwi family. Always fun to tease them with that shit. Australians are English and Kiwis are Australian. Ha!

    It's a school stadium.

    It's Australia's training ground, which we're thinking of leaving, because the pitch is shit.
