Asia Cup Draw announced for next January's tournament. We get South Korea, Oman and Kuwait. Luckily enough for me the best game out of that lot (Sth Korea) is being played in Brisbane! Should be good to cheer an Ange Postecoglou run team again.
The first 45 were immaculate. Some of the best football I've ever seen this country play.

It's safe to say Mat Ryan has secured his place at WC, Injury notwithstanding
GROUP B - Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia

We'll need a team full of Stephen Bradburys to make it out of this group alive.
BELIEVE!!!
We're f****d

totally f****d,worked so hard to get f****d
100% record for Ange Postecoglou!
Tobesh look at the fourth page on this chat ;)

WE PREDICTED THE FUTURE. :D

On a serious note: Loads of positives, That was perhaps the best passing game I have seen Australia put forward in a long time, A lot of attacking intent, good to see youngsters get a cameo or two, Rogic's Cameo, and solid defending all round. Good first game.

The left back position is still very problematic though.
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Schwarzer announces his retirement from the socceroos :(

Shouldn't have gone to Chelsea. No playing time....
He went to Chelsea because he obviously lost all the desire to play regularly tbh. I love him as much as anyone, but this is good for the team as a whole, it's better in the long run for Mitch and Mat Ryan to get game time.
Fox Sports understands that Holger Osieck has just been sacked. For more tune in to Fox Sports News Channel 513. #foxfootball

Get Guus in, let him squeeze the last ounce of commitment, and then make him an advisor of sorts to Ange Postecoglou post 2014.

Thoughts? I think Les makes some very good arguments, he has no vision, and maybe the problem lies with the Upper Echeleon of FFA, but he must go. Maybe a new manager now will be problematic, but he should go. Try and get Guus for the WC, Then put him in an advisory role and hire Ange Postecoglou or Tony Popovic or maybe even shoot and go for Bielsa?
Not sure tbh, I'm almost resigned to our team not being too good for awhile. I would love to see Guus again of course but honestly mate, our team is the victim of time and this new look A-league that has become a cash in rather than promoting the top players in our country into the leagues. We just don't produce the same talents like Viduka, Emerton, Neil etc and our team has suffered for it, even losing that "never give up" attitude of late. :(
He does make some good points there. Always found it strange how he always puts the experienced players in the team and leaves out the youngsters, who are arguably better.
I feel like Holger's mentality is that now that they have qualified for the world cup, he feels his work is done and wouldn't put much effort into the actual competition. Also when he doesn't choose the youngsters, they may not go to Brazil, which would be a bad decision.

Risky option about changing him with such little time. Not too sure.
The thing is, we should be making progress, the team should be moving and changing and eventually move up. We have a plethora of young talent, that play across Europe, yet players in the Saudi Arabian league (they are legends, and odds are Australia will not produce a crop of that quality for many years) are getting picked because Holger is too afraid to change and move us along. I'm not saying shove all the old players out immediately, but so many of them deserve a shot in the lead up to Brazil, and they should also be transitioned, between the WC in 2014 and the Asian Cup in '15.
