Australia's draw against Holland comes as a tremendous news for the new qualifying wc team...holland i believe is number 3 in the world.....

tim cahill was the goal scorer.....nd schwarzer saved over 10 goals some of which were extremely stunning...

if u are a aussie supporter, post nd show ur number nd express ur joy....

We (Sydney, Ian & myself) have already expressed our joy (and otherwise) in 2 other threads. I don't see the need to open a new thread for one 'encouraging' (as opposed to 'tremendous') result. Keep a lid on it mate. Long way to go yet. ;)

firstly i have no way of knowing if u or others have posted elsewhere..if u have, then no one is forcing u to post here...

nd secondly australia did go long way already....you dont expect them to win the WC in the same year they qualified....they have beaten football mammoths like uruguay nd holland nd euro cup champion greece....nd now they r gearing up to face brazil....

i am very confidant that they will put up a decisive show against japans..

1. Relax. I didn't mean to offend you. And, yes, no one forced me to post.
2. I realise Australia has come a long way. But there is a long way to go, yet.
3. "you dont expect them to win the WC in the same year they qualified" ?

When I said "Keep a lid on it mate. Long way to go yet", I was elluding to the fact that you were clearly a little overwhelmed by the 1-1 draw vs the Netherlands. What I should have said was that there was also some negatives to come out of the game. Things we can work on. For example, our defense looked vulnerable when tested, in patches, throughout. RVN was given too much respect in and around the box. We relinquished possession too easily and too frequently. The list goes on. Am I being overcritical? No. I want us to play to our potential. Am I worried? A little, yes. But clearly we were playing quality opposition (something we are still not yet fully accustomed to) and obviously I have full faith in Hiddink and the boys. I do believe the situation will be rectified come June 12.

So. Can we challenge Brazil? Yes. And can we defeat Japan & Croatia? Definatly!

Go Aussies!

yes u do have a way...just spend a few minutes to browse thru the forum before u give in to ur temptation of opening a new thread...

nd secondly australia did go long way already....you dont expect them to win the WC in the same year they qualified....they have beaten football mammoths like uruguay nd holland nd euro cup champion greece....nd now they r gearing up to face brazil....

it was 1-1 draw against Holland, not a win, look at the very subject you chose to open the thread with...

nevertheless, appreciate your confident support towards the soccroos...

mr-cricket .... mate, u were spot on...

Wilkshire is a disgrace, and it was sad to see Australia playing dirty and injuring Dutch players in the process. Hopefully WC referees will punish such play through straight red cards

I have no idea what game you were watching, but it certainly wasn't the same one I was watching. :confused:
