Before he was subbed at the 70-minute mark, Tim played an important part in three Australias goals. When he left the field, he immediately went down the tunnel and returned to the bench with a new fangled kind of ice pack wrapped around his left knee.
He seemed very cheerful and not in any kind of pain. Australia play Japan, one of the cup favourites, on Saturday night, Australia time.
I take this opportunity to wish all Blue Aussies specially Christine in flooded Queensland a happy Australia Day.

In actuality, it's a VERY VERY stupid joke tournament. and not a very funny joke. More the sort of joke that's an irritating waste of everybody's time.

Player by the name of Matt McKay looks like a real player and hopefully Timmy's putting a good word in for him with our hierarchy. Not sure if paying him in Monopoly money to play for us will work though. He seems switched on.

I would be very surprised if other clubs have not already tapped him up. That would be a shame, specially as Everton were down here in the pre-season and should have been scouring for local talent while here.

Come to think of it, Osman's been getting away with avoiding the gym at Finch Farm for years so Matty's good to go!!!!

Now what value this comment is I hear you ask? I believe if you drop a player like this into the squad and show up those lazy useless fuckers like Anichebe, Bily, Saha, Vaughan et al, the gaffer might see them for what they are worth and sell them on to some other gullible cash-strapped team.

Also the Asian Cup is not a joke at all, every nation there is competing full of pride. Apart from the more obvious Japan, Australia & South Korea, there is also China, Iran and Iraq (who won the previous tournament).
