What The Arsenal Asia Tour Video Tells You

All Four One, and One Four All! at related • 0 views

What do you do when the entire world is either-

a) Giving BJ's to Barcelona (deserved BJ's they may be) or

b) Patting Man United sympathetically on the back and saying ‘there's no shame in getting dry-humped by Barcelona, it's only shameful in Arsenal's case'

Australia beat Bahrain 1-0 thanks to a Mile Jedinak strike but the real concern is the wounded soldiers, some limping, some suspended, some just ageing.

Did anyone really think Harry Kewell could play six games straight?

Well he's up to three, but he's showing signs of slowing. Meanwhile Brett Emerton pulled his Croatia 2006 World Cup trick, getting booked for nothing on the eve of our most important game in a while - watch Iraq or Iran just like Italy pour down the Aussie left next game.

Plastic fans ruining World Cup

Dan Loney Says It All at related • 2 views
Laugh at Robert Green all you want - at least he didn't pick Cameroon to win the tournament.

Part of my thinking was home field advantage, but no one has a home field advantage. It's the same noise no matter who's playing. When Ghana scored, the plastic horns got louder. That was it.

(This is going to be a rant about plastic horns - well, not a rant.

Roberto Baggio's preformance at the 1994 World Cup is lauded. Quite rightly too. His goals took Italy all the way to the final, where he played injured and missed the decisive penalty. Tragic but heroic stuff from The Divine Ponytail.

However, four years before his 1994 performance, Roberto Baggio was making his World Cup debut in 1990, when Italy hosted the tournament.
