Australian National Team Thread - back on the Boyle


#447

Good on him. Hope it gives him a bit of confidence.


#448

Good boys.


#449

Fuck yes. Lovely pair of goals.


#450

Very nice goals


#451

Yellow for that tackle on Rogic?


#452

Looking so much more dynamic up front with the front three out there.


#453

This Zorilla bloke is nailed on for a red card


#454

The 11th January shall henceforth be a public holiday.


#455

Given a lot more space in midfield, compared to Jordan and Palestine’s backline is a shambles.

Much improved from us though.


#456

This is it. Much more time on the ball than what we were given against Jordan.
Good performance so far but we’re going to struggle against high pressing teams.


#457

Hopefully they’ll build confidence from the way we are playing and get a few more goals.


#458

Irvine is getting screwed. Fuck this ref.


#459

That was a stupid yellow


#460

We’re going to get utterly demolished by the stronger sides in this tournament.


#461

Yeh I hope we dont plan to play Irvine deep in midfield against a good team. I like him but he shouldn’t be there.

Also McLaren is still useless. He cant hold anything up nor link up very well with his wide men. Nabbout is much better all around and Giannou actually knows how to…well, be a striker.


#462

Grant has had a great game. Offers so much more than Risdon. His runs forward make such a huge difference to our attacking play.


#463

They only issue will be against a stronger side Grant can be out of position a lot and stronger teams will be way better on the counter


#464

Neither fullback will be so high against decent teams. They let us by sitting so deep today with 1 centre forward


#465

So what I got out of that is fuck Robbie Kruse off and we score goals.


#466

There were still too many chances squandered in front of goal.
The stronger teams will not give us that many.
The chances must be taken.
