They are showing the game this Sat on a big screen at our local shopping centre.

The wife announces we should go over as the atmosphere might be good, she even announces she could wear ' herAustralian gear'.....to that she means her ******* Wallabies top and scarf ffs lol

I was going to explain to her why this is so shyte but i have been trying to train her up regarding football for 20 years without much progress.....

**** it...i just give up lol

At our morning staff meeting this morning...I reminded my colleagues that it wasn't too soon to dust off their Socceroos scarves and other green and gold items. 

Apart from a ripple of amusement ....and a response from our (female) Maths Head Teacher...whose usual football colour is Sky Blue...there wasn't much of a reaction.

Sigh.

In the past, there have been green and gold flags about ...on cars etc by now, but I'm not seeing anything of that nature in my part of Sydney. 

Not much of a buzz about, is there?  :(

Wait until we beat France 4-0 Wendy.

There'll be Socceroos flags all over the country.

Opening game will have a familiar face to us. The referee is Nestor Pintana. He officiated at the last intercontinental playoff at ANZ between Australia and Honduras.

Hierro new Spain coach.

Their team is so experienced they hardly need coaching. They should just let Iniesta tell them all what to do.

How could they overlook Gombau? They surely have to consider "Big Sam Araldici"

Well she has got a national team jersey (of a different code) which is more than i have. I have efused to pay $120 for a jersey where 100% of the profits go to the FFA

Gombau is too Catalan in any case

Optus' pre-match studio coverage is dreadful. Okon has the charisma of a wooden chair with a broken leg, Mel still hasn't improved since she left fox sports and keeps interrupting people and making weird tangents, and they all keep tripping over each other's words.

Popa on the panel now. I guess his conquest of Al Hilal makes him qualified to talk about the Saudi Arabia game.

I'm hoping the Saudi's get up just to "p" off Putin.

No. SBS sold the rights to Optus. You need an optus account for a phone or mobile internet to watch the majority of the games. You can watch I think 25 of the games on SBS on TV or SBS online.

All Australian games and the WC final are part of the Government's "anti-siphoning list" - so they must be shown on free to air. Everything else is up for grabs to the highest bidder (unfortunately).
