Australian clubs in the ACL - 2019


#42

The right channel of Newcastle’s defence is having a day.


#43

Grab the Asia. :+1:

Never thought I’d say this about any team, but Newcastle really missing Jason Hoffman down their right side.


#44

Finally the whole of Asia get a taste of Boogaard.


#45

It’s a joy watching Kashima swarm and win the ball back whenever they bloody well feel like it. Pretty sure we taught them that last year.


#46

Amazed Kantarovski wasn’t hooked at 2-1 really, he was putrid.


#47

He was their Zac Anderson


#48

MV play Daegu tonight. Could go either way that one.


#49

I think I read something that the Aussie teams combined need an average of 5 points more than the Thai teams or for both to make the knockout phases and the Thai teams to not otherwise its likely to be 1 automatic 2 playoff spots next season


#50

I know it’s not really relevant, but what is aleague clubs record against Thai teams?


#51

I dont think weve played them much. It always seems to be one Japanese/Korean/Chinese team and then one Aussie/Thai/other South East Asian in a group


#52

So Toivonen in line to play tonight:

This line stood out for me:

The 2019 edition of the AFC Champions League will be Daegu’s first foray into the competition, having qualified via a cup run

Just like their opposition then.


#53

Tards playing in a clean strip sure to their sponsor having ties to an offshore gambling shop which they didn’t do due diligence on


#54

I assume they didn’t have a clean keeper kit as Thomas is sporting green tape over his sponsor name.


#55

Better than that: green tape over Thomas’ sponsor.


#56

I’d love to get high an mighty here, but while their due diligence was poor (it was SokkahTwitter doing the sleuthing) as we have a casino as our major sponsor, I’ll keep quiet.


#57

Not for the ACL, for the ACL our front of shirt sponsor is an offshore merchant bank… much more respectable.


#58

Man this is a boring game… Victory playing safe football and not really going for any 50/50 passes between the lines zzzzZzZZz


#59

And it comes to life just like that…


#61

You spoke way to early, almost as if you want them to succeed?


#62

That’s better
