Two points:

1) the poor performances of certain teams in the WC means that their cause for extra teams from that region hasn't been helped.
2) on the other hand, the lack of competitive games means that it won't be surprising if Oceania were to be disbanded as results there are in fact a disgrace to world football. Go figure.

Why is it that some misguided Liverpool fans enjoy deriding Everton at every opportunity. A sign of bitterness, insecurity, lack of class, lack of self-esteem or whatever. We are NOT on this thread to discuss Everton, we're on here to discuss the state of the game in Australia.

And to think Asia wanted another entrant. Not after the Saudi performance I don't think so...

The funny thing about Saudi Arabia is that they do have a few decent players (such midfielder Nawaf al-Temyat), they topped their qualifying group and their build-up was decent. The success of South Korea and Japan may help the Asian cause, as the region is growing and becoming competitive.

I think the problem with a lot of Middle Eastern teams, it seems, is attitude. I don't mean to offend anyone, but it's obvious that many of them have allowed themselves to become spoilt because they live good lives at home and don't feel the need to do anything more than that. There are exceptions of course.

With Oceania, it's clear why the idea of disbanding it starts to lookin like a good one. Australia won games by such ridiculous scorelines against essentially nonexistent opposition, which wasn't even Sunday league standard. The only countries in the region which can compete internationally are Australia and New Zealand, so how can it be a viable region?
