Sunday June 22

Coach 7159 (where is he by the way? ) has named his Australian Forum XI squad to take part in the Oceania Nations Cup beginning in New Zealand on July 5.

7159 has arrived home from the World Cup and will take his squad into the training camp on Monday. The squad will spend five days in camp in Sydney before heading to the tournament in Auckland. 7159 hopes to organise some practice matches before the tournament.

The squad going to the event will do so without pay - unless the team wins the tournament - and with only a small daily allowance and basic accommodation because the sport's governing body here in Australia is struggling financially.

Full squad will be posted later.

Winger Andreas out with a groin injury

Attacking right winger Andreas has pulled out of the squad with a suspected groin injury although the pacy wide man would refuse to elaborate of the situation, stating that what was "below the waist and above the knee caps" was his business and no-one else's

Andreas also said that two factors other than low pay influenced his decision.

Firstly i am disappointed with our non-preparation and i blame the coach for having a bludge in South Korea and Japan at Australia's expense :mad: :frustrat:. I hope he's got a good explanation and has learn't a lot cause i've lost a lot of confidence in his ability after the Uruguay debacle and with certain comments he has made regarding how we would have done in place of Uruguay

The other thing that has disappointed the right sided attacking midfielder is the apparent Sex ban that has been placed on the players with Andreas stating that it would only cause more tension between the sometimes hotheaded players. "Frankly i don't know who came up with the bull**** about sex raising your testosterone levels and making you more agro. You only have to look at the way the Ities are carrying on after being eliminated controversially. Its obvious that part of their frustration is of a sexual nature. We know Totti was absolutely drooling over Ahn and i think the defender that was at fault for his golden goal was too busy staring at his package rather than doing what he was supposed to.....defending. Anyway while all you lot are playing for free, i'll make sure that i get plenty of nookie to help my rehab

Andreas refused to say when he'd be available to play for the NT

Anouncement: leeds_utd_lad has again stated he wants to be picked for national duty... After a year of injury and a long road of getting back on top of things he had this to say "I know I have been out for what seems like forever but I am in the best shape ever and I feel ready for National commitment..." more on this story later...

Speaking on Sports927 before boarding a chartered flight to Sydney, Australian Forum XI member pao1908 expressed his delight in being selected in the squad for the Oceania Nations Cup.

"I cant wait to wear the Green 'n Gold again. It promises to be a great tournament for us", pao1908 told Melbourne radio listeners. "Im always proud to represent my country, even if it means that we basically will be playing for next-to-nothing".

While it seems that pao1908 has put behind him the disappoinment that was the Aust. Forum XI vs Uruguay shenanigans, he did have this to say about his fellow/former team-mates.... "I will be very interested to see who gets selected to represent us, but will be even more interested to see which pricks are actually going to show up" ;)

With leeds_utd_lad already declaring his intentions to play, question marks still surround the established AF-XI stars such as King Italy, NANDO, the artist formally known as tigerTUFF, and Andreas, whose injury according to rumours is worse than first expected. "Ive heard stories that he's pulled his groin", said pao1908, " but ive also heard that Mrs. Palmer and her five lovely daughters also had a hand on it, sorry, in it. Whether thats true or not, you'll have to ask Andreas".

Wednesday June 25

Coach 7159 has confirmed that the captain of his Australian Forum XI side will be star Lazio centre back King Italy after the withdrawal of star right winger Andreas.

He said: "I am disappointed to lose Andreas for this tournament, he did a great job against Uruguay, but I feel King Italy will be the perfect replacement for this team. He has the experience (he is captain of Lazio)"

King Italy said he was happy to be picked as captain: "I am proud to captain this side, we must win this tournament and qualify for the Confederations Cup. I don't care if we play in this tournament for nothing, but this great bunch of lads wants to win in New Zealand.

Meanwhile, King Italy also unvelied the official Australian Forum XI's new mascot for the tournament which you can see below, and he said that the players want to keep this mascot for good.

Stay tuned for the latest Australian Forum XI news in the leadup to the Cup.

Reuters: dyertribe declared fit ...

... after an arduous first half of the season at University.

Quoted by an un-named source the 21 year old starlet is eagerly awaiting a national call-up:

"Yeah, I originally thought I'd done the groin in an 'incident' after training ... she just rolled the wrong way as I was moving in the other direction and I just felt it pop, but I have to say she apologised straight away so that was good of her. I'm just extremely thankful the doc has given me the all-clear to jump straight back on."

The previously uncapped left-sided midfielder has been a revelation at Flinders University lately, so much so that a high-profile move to New York Bar & Grill FC has been touted after some successful displays in night games on loan. But dyertribe was quick to point out his first priority was the national team ...

"Yeah look, if the move happens it happens, I'm not really concerned about that right now. My first concern has to be nailing down that spot on the left. I just hope that coach 7159 has noticed my progress playing down here."

With young stars like dyertribe and King Italy coming through the ranks the future certainly looks bright.

I'm here King Italy and others.
Just been so busy lately.
I hope I will never leave the Aussie Forum.

Also trying to come to terms with the World Cup.

Man, FIFA better review Refs and Linesman and the off-side rule because there were many suss decisions.

Coach 7159 would rather be kicking at the door at FIFA changing a couple of rules - URGENTLY.

Thumbs up.... and apparently thats not all!

Following the official release of the AF-XI mascot, it seems that many members of the squad are extremely pleased with the selection. While some sections of the community (mainly the womens liberation movement :groan: ) are all up in arms about her selection, it seems that this new mascot is certainly making waves within the squad itself.

"Its great to see that we finally have a mascot rooting for us" said pao1908, to which he added, "She has already been of great motivational benefit to us... just ask Andreas".

pao1908 continued, "I dont really know whose idea it was for us to have a mascot in the first place.... i believe coach 7159 and King Italy were behind it all, but it doesnt matter who thought of it, as long as we have someone like that around us in the locker rooms, im sure the boys will always have high spirits".

Taylor too Tuff to handle.....

if you believe the now retired Giorgos (more commonly known as Tigertuff)

Apparently one of the main reasons for Giorgos not reconsidering his involvement with the national team involved a nasty episode with the AFXI mascot Amy Taylor. Apparently when Giorgos was having those relationship issues last year around the time of the Uruguay games he was seeing the Matildas cover girl for weekly sex

Unfortunately things went very wrong and after being bruised black and blue as a result of overelaborate lovin, the so called master of greek and roman style orgies was more like the slave and he took an AVO out on Ms Taylor

As for Ms Taylor, well she refused to comment ;)

"Well, that explains it all then." "I think the new mascot will benefit us all" said a very happy looking leeds_utd_lad. As the young Australian Internation forward made his way to the opening of a new Nike store in the centre of Canberra on Friday he stoppped and told reporters "look, here is all you need to know!" "if I'm selected for duty I'm selected, it is all up to 7159 and that is it, he know's I'm ready for Internationl commitment again and I am really looking forward to playing on the same side as KI again. I have played him UEFA Cup and he is very impressive, a great young tallent." leeds_utd_lad then told reporters to pack it in and that he would see them at the launch. more later...

Reuters:

Injury scare rocks the chances of young AFXI hopeful ...

Pacy winger dyertribe will almost certainly be unavailable for the opening game after a freak accident at his Adelaide home yesterday, a family spokesperson said.

Reading from a hastily-prepared sheet of paper the unidentified woman, believed to be a 'family friend' stated:

"He (dyertribe) was checking his email and doing his regular hunting for news items surrounding his possible inclusion when he came across a picture of the AFXI mascot. Upon downloading and witnessing it he fell off his chair, reinjuring his already tender muscle"

When asked what his first reaction was, the woman told the awaiting media:

"He just lay there with his head in his hands and said 'Fcuk me! I've done a Canizares"

More on the story as it comes to hand ...

MEMO


Major anouncement expected in the next few days with the man formerly known as TigerTUFF, Giorgos, expected to arrive in sunny Melbournia any day soon.


Media circles are in a frenzy, with no end to the speculation. Will he return?, and with who? or perhaps for who? Is this jet-in football related? or is it another one of those relationship scandals that ruined his short stint at Liverpool? Has he become aborn again christian? or has he swung the Buddha way? Or will he, like its been murmured, become the adult movie:star: he has already been accused of, by former captain andreas Speck.

One things for sure, after that mess in Uruguay was cleared up, even though the DNA 'sample' taken from her tonsils was in fact proven to be 'his', he was not the father of her soon to be born child and that she in fact was already pregnant when she partook in the shared relations with her twin sisters and the former classy defensive midfielder.

Couto 5 back in the fold !!!

Reuters , Perth Australia.
Veteren Goalkeeper Couto 5 has made his intentions clear about his availability for the forthcoming Oceania Nations Cup . " Sh!t Yeah " was the response Couto gave when asked if he was available. " I am hell pumped up, In the off season I have made 2 movies for a reputeable company and feel mentally recharged & ready to rock the giants of American Samao or what ever the hell they are called " Couto added as he sipped on his 13th Victoria Bitter for the evening. "OK Fella's F*ck off , interview is now over I have to get to the bottlo before it shuts".
Couto did seem out of shape but showed superb reflexes when a freind threw him another coldie and he dived the full length of the interview table to take a clean take without spilling a drop.

tigerTUFF lands down under



Rueters, Melbourne

June 29, 1.34am tigerTUFF the enigmatic retired midfielder jetted into Melbourne on a private Qantas jet piloted by the new face of Qantas airlines John Travolta. As he stepped off the plane he was seen to be repeatedly 'flippin the bird' to the cockpit clearly mouthing the words, "THATS RIGHT YOU FAT F*CK, YOU FLY ME WHEREVER I WANT TO GO, WHENEVER I WANT TO GO, THATS WHAT URE PAID FOR, NOW GIT ME BAGS"

He refused to answer all questions telling everyone to shut the f*ck up he had something to say, "I am here to REnounce my retirement which I made at a very difficult time, and have come to offer my services to the NT which has a number of new faces available from what I see. Its up to the coach on whether I make the daunting trip to New Zealand, this desicion has nothing whatsoever to do with my ex ride Amy Taylor being the new team mascot and keepin an eye on teammates couts, pao and speck who are known to dangle the dandy so to speak, the balls in the coach, captain and my ex-teammates hands."

" GK Calls on coach to introduce young guns "

Veteran GK Couto 5 called on National coach , 7159, to introduce young blood to the squad. " Man" said Couto, " we have sh!t loads of potential, but we now need legs to back up the brains . We have young soft cocks such as Alarich , Leeds Utd Lad & others wgho dont wanna know , shame on them soft cocks "
Couto then roared " I wanna know my defenders if 7159 wants me to devise tactics, if I get them early I assure 7159 we will not concede more than 1 goal per 2 games ". King Italy is a youngster from the West Coast who draws attraction from his male addorers. "Adrian is not homosexual, so all you Poofs , F*ck off" the god damn guy got my best freind , Nicky Winmar, sister pregnant. " this guy has huge potentail. I wish the media left him alone. He is about to become a father- how about a bit of peace before we leave". Couto 5 looked impressive as he left a gruelling 2 hour session with freinds , **** Mcguane, Paul Van Der Haar , Gary Ablett & Nicky Winmar.

AAP: dyertribe defends COUTO 5 over outburst in lead up to selection

Adelaide: The young Flinders University winger has come out in support of COUTO 5 after his drunken outburst of a few days ago. Speaking after a rehab session on his injured groin dyertribe spoke with admiration and respect for the veteran number one.

"He commands respect from all the lads ... sure he was a little harsh, but when I'm pushing down that touchline I'm happy knowing that we've got the big fella back there looking after things, and I know the rest of the team know there's no better option in Oceania - if not Asia!"

When quizzed on the keeper's apparent drunkeness at the training session dyertribe was unwavering in his defence of the Maritimo gloveman.

"Sh1t, he may have had a few or seven but so what? Did you see his hands out there? Didn't spill a drop! Make's Chilavert look like a fat Paraguayan choirboy!"

Soccer Australia officials refused to comment.

THE AUSTRALIAN: YOUNG GUN BACK IN OZ!

Young Leeds Striker, leeds_utd_lad, finally arived back in Australia today after parting with team mates to prepare for the up comming tournament. "I'm just glad to finally be back in Canberra, I am really anxious to hear if I'm in the squad or not and I just want to get out there and do the best for my Country!" LUL was also quoted saying he thinks King Italy is the best player in the world and that even God would have picked him as captain. "Sure I can tell you what I think of King Italy, he's a bloody genius! I'm so happy that 7159 has picked him as Captain, he is my personal role model and I think noone else could have filled Andreas shoe's better. I even think God maybe had something to do with this, maybe not, but I think KI is in that position for a reason. I really think we can win the cup!" after comment's like that readers who needs anything else to consider putting their house on the matches. LUL will now resume training with those who are in Australia for the tournament and is hoping that the selections go his way. "I feel I played some pretty good football in England and I think that on my current condition I am perfect for the team. The injury I had was enough but not being in the last team because of it really hurt. I just want to show those here in Australia that I can play for them and bring back the cup! I owe it to them after they all stuck behind me during my injury scare. I got so much mail u wouldn't believe it" he said with a big smile on his face. "I'm here to win the cup, nothing else..." continue on pg 4.

" Couto Apologises For Outburst"

FoxSports- July 1 2002

Veteran GK Couto 5 today called a press conferance to apoligise for his actions over the last week.

" I would like to take this opportunity to tell my fellow colleagues I am sorry for my discracefull actions over the weekend. I obviously had a few too many with Nicky and the boys. I would liked King Italy to have been there , but with him becoming a father soon he had his missus to tend too- The Winmar family should be proud of him" Couto looking remorseful then added " I hope 7159 can look past this little incidents and I hope he can take the opportunity to fly over to Perth to see what hard work I am doing. I would also like to thank the boys from the NT for their supportand doing extra hard sessions with the personal trainer I have employed" His Personal trainer was revealed to be none other than Perth Identity John Kizon. " Yeah John has been great. He is a tough task master and by the time the tournament starts I will be running hard , I am already feeling fitter than I have in a long time "
With all that said, Couto looks in great shape, his hands were clean & sharp in a short session earlier and will be enthusiastic about his chances after receiving the backing from team mates earlier in the day.

The Age, Melbourne 2/07/02:

Ex-Soccer Australia Chairmen David Hill and Tony Labbozetta Demand Wade Inclusion

Extraordinary scenes last night at the Crown Casino Palladium Room in Melbourne when at the 1st National Conference of Enemies of Australian Soccer (EOAS), Hill and Labbozetta both called for the inclusion of Australian soccer's most celebrated donkey, Paul Wade.

"I am shocked his name hasn't even been thrown into the ring" said a stunned Hill. "He is overweight, out of form and his touch is even worse than it was the day he retired - he'd be perfect for the squad!"

Labbozetta also decried the lack of corruption going on since his departure from the top job:

"In my day, I would've hired my brother and forty-seven cousins in some capacity ... especially seeing it's the end of the financial year! It's imperative business acumen to run at a loss!!! Oh yes ... and Wade should be in ... although I have heard Steve Horvat's name lately so it's not all bad!"

Other luminaries attending the black-tie dinner included ex-Socceroo coach Raul Blanco who received a lifetime coaching award and his longtime offsider Les Scheinflug who became the first man to enter the newly created EOAS Hall of Fame. Channel 9 and Channel 7 bosses Kerry Packer and Kerry Stokes reportedly walked out when their names weren't read out on the honours list. A waiter at the $1000-a-head function saw it happen:

"They just looked at each other and said 'We've done more to destroy and hinder wogball than anyone', then they left for the carpark holding hands."
