Ever Wondered Why So Many Australian Footballers Play Overseas?

Still no Zelic who has been in great form for Newcastle and looks rock solid although Archie Thomson did beat Zelic to the ball to head in the winner for Melbourne on the weekend. If Zelic has a weakness it is against a nippy player like Archie in set pieces who have the spring on him. Otherwise Zelic looks very confident and capable. Has Zelic been considered? Even with Zelic in the central defence it will still require a nippy back to stop those quick plays from set pieces.

Australia 5 (M.Bresciano 2, A.Thompson 27, M.Viduka 47, J.Aloisi 58, J.Griffiths 84) bt Jamaica 0
Australia: Zeljko Kalac; Lucas Neill, Tony Vidmar (Jo Skoko 53), Michael Thwaite, Luke Wilkshire (Ahmad Elrich 79), Brett Emerton (Vince Grella 70), Scott Chipperfield, Jason Culina, Mark Bresciano (Tim Cahill 79), Archie Thompson (Joel Griffiths 70), Mark Viduka (John Aloisi 56)
Jamaica: Shawn Sawyers; Robert Scarlett (Garfield Reid 53), Omar Daley, Tyrone Marshall, Damien Stewart (Fabien Dawkins 61), Claude Davis, Nicholy Finlayson (Desmond Breckonridge 53), Ricardo Gardner, Jermaine Johnson (Damani Ralph 49), Ricardo Fuller (Jason Morrison 63), Luton Shelton.
Thwaite played well and Wilkshire held his own in the midfield. These are positive signs as the Socceroos now have a team with many players who are capable of performing at the international level. Archie looked dangerous for the Socceroos . Archie was missed by Melbourne in their game against New Zealand. Melbourne did not look the same incisive team without Archie but played well enough to win 3-0. If they play like that against Sydney expect a Sydney rout on the weekend.
Meanwhile Zelic was at the heart of the defence that was thrashed by Perth 4-0 and looked ordinary.

webs site devoted to sport does not a mention of football i.e. soccer on its web site. Then what can be expected from the goobers who have a monopoly control over the media. No doubt these MMmorons with their fingers in their pies have no idea about what real competition is all about (other than attempting to stop others from competing in the marketplace). Or is it merely a coincidence that the packielackeys and mordochian morons own crappielackey teams and at the same time control the media?

Yet the Droopy Boob Show on Saturday National Radio is all about soccer ‘scaremongering’ by the usual crew of tiddleywimp morons expressing concern that people might watch the new A-league. They’re inferiority complex is transparent and rightly so – tiddleywimps is inferior- get over it. Nor was there any mention of the A League result in the news. Then they went on infinitum about tiddleywimps being indigenous- it is an import and not indigenous. As far as indigenous goes Australian soccer i.e. football was here and played long before Victorian Rules which is only an adaptation of the Irish game.
Watched the packielackey final highlights and talk about low quality. They can’t even pass a ball when they can catch it! Really weak. And they finally caught up with the confetti spray used in football i.e. soccer for years. Then packielackey has never had an original thought and is really dragging the chain on fashion and technology. It has always relied on its monopoly and stealing ideas from FIFA and others. And the singing! Really poor by some so-called ‘stars’ which people around the globe have never heard of nor want to- except perhaps for the KKK.

“With Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador and Paraguay already qualified ahead of Wednesday's matches, all that really needed to be decided was fifth and a play-off spot against Oceania champions Australia. Three teams were in with a shout, and all had fixtures against qualified teams. Chile could only manage a scoreless draw with Ecuador in Santiago, Colombia claimed three points in Asuncion thanks to Luis Rey's goal but Uruguay, a point above the other two going into the last-day matches, defeated their rivals from across the Rio de la Plata 1-0 as Alvaro Recoba once more became the hero of the Centenario. Argentina's loss and Brazil's 3-0 victory over Venezuela meant the world champions ended top of the table.”

The bank roller of packielackey has passed away. How did he manage to keep a sub-standard game alive? As the AFR puts it”
Kerry Packer liked making money. Which is why he didn't like full-on competition if he could avoid it. In this respect, he was no different to many other entrepreneurs. The big difference is that he was exceptionally good at what he did.
His companies' core businesses rely heavily on
government decisions which restrict the entry of competitors. The Nine
television network and his share of Foxtel pay TV are
protected from more vigorous competition by government policies. Even more
restrictive entry conditions apply to his ownership of casinos in
And who said I was crazy? His control of the media and his blackout of the only competitive football I.e. soccer was due to his use of monopoly power. They are so weak in packielackey they cannot even catch a ball for a few passes. What hope would these uncoordinated drunken louts have in real sport!

The packielackey moron Atkinson who smashed the head of a man wearing a football jersey with a beer bottle from behind walks free without any jail term despite being shown on video and pleading guilty. This savage racist attacker is allowed to carry on his neo-nazi ways as the judge eggs him on. There can be no doubt about it, the officialdom with its Tiddleywimp Premier approve of the attacking of wogs who play or support football especially if they are of Middle Eastern heritage. These cowardly packielackies walk in gangs attacking people from behind in their drunken stupors. They are too used to looking at where the sun doesn’t shine in their scrums!
