Teams: Australia & Newcastle United
Weak as piss...
What a time to play your worst game of the year.
Fair dinkum, I got so pissed off with our performance tonight I switched over to FOXTEL and watched Dude, Where's My Car?.
Seriously as this level you can't give your opponent any breaks - If Brett Burton kicks straight in the first five minutes of the game we'd have been 3 goals up and from there anything can happen. Instead, he kicks like a donkey and it takes us almost the entire match to kick what we should've kicked in the those first five minutes.
Bring on a Neitz barrage next week so I can be put out of my misery.
"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.
There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."
