Kaiserlautern, 27th June
LOL Helal, trying to bring some luck to Australia by opening this thread?
Anyway, this will be an interesting game. Nesta out is a blow, but I have to admit (reluctanlty) that Cannavaro is playing well.
Also, I am a huge fan of Aloisi, not only now, but from years ago. I don't know why he is benched and Viduka always starts?
God I hope Nesta is injured so Materazzi plays.
huge game, Guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuus knocked out Italia in the same stage 4 years ago so he'll fancy himself quietely I reckon.
Two special notes, a) Gattuso will meet his match, Vincenzo Grella who so far has daddy slapped Ronaldinho, Nakamura & Kranjcar.
b) Gilardino/Toni better be ready to face Lucas Neill, just about the most underrated defender going around, at Blackburn he is played as right back,for OZ he has been so farking good at centre back, well, a legend like Neeskens comments say it all....
Neeskens (to be Barcelona assistant): 'Lucas Neill is definetely good enough for Barca"
Luis, it's almost certain that Nesta will miss the next game.
But you never know I guess, he can come back like he did in the first game.
Damn you Catanha. I bought into your Australlian hype and it cost be 20 bucks last night. (Regardless of how crappy Poll was. )
PS: Damn you part II for using the same avatar as mine.
Roberto- Forza Italia!! Australians are no longer my friends says:
hopefully this time Australia beats italy
Anyway, as ive said before. EVERYone will expect Italy to win and rightly so, but if they underestimate us Guus will make them pay..
South Korea 2002 anyone?
That Roo Raping sonofabitch took that quote of context. He had one too many fosters and thought he was funny. I was talking about an australian broad beating me off lol.
To make things clear.
FORZA ITALIA!! DESTROY THE AUSSIES!!
However,I wish Tim Cahill luck as he is close to inking a deal with Inter.
my avatar is a much more clear photo of Facchetti, which obviously means that I love him more, thus...Originally Posted by Handoyo
Handoyo= poor mans catanha
Graham Poll-smoker needs to realise that two yellow cards equal a red card, not three. You know Australia were awarded a penalty at the end of the match? gee.....no time to take it, I would've paid $20 just to see your face...
the Aussies are lucky up to now !
question for ya, Marcello mate, and no way am I attacking you (honest!)...Originally Posted by Marcello
you were born in Australia (I assume?), you live in Australia with your family, you have been raised in Australia, you live, eat & drink in Australia, you are a Australian with Italian descent....
why support Italia, mate?
LOL whats better is, not just did he award us a penalty but the ball was poked into the back of the net by Cahill so infact we didnt even need to take the penalty if the advantage was paid...Originally Posted by catanha
That was awesome. Three yellow cards I didn't think that could happen. Damn Poll taking a goal away from Future Inter Superstar TIM CAHILL!!
if you were in my shoes today you wouldnt know how much times i got that questionOriginally Posted by catanha
Well its pretty hard i love italy all ways have supported them
All ways keep will be Its my background i talk it speak it
Australia have made it to the cup this year great stuff im supporting them all the way , all these years australia have been shit and a team that you wouldnt want to support they neva won any game and yeah but that aint the reason cause they lose just dont have the same passion for italia
hope that answers it , tell you the truth i dint want to play agaisnt australia they are so focused i rekn they want it more then italy
y do you like argentina so much
itlaians got nothing, cahill, kewel will rip them apart. our defence will shut down they're goobi/acmerda players.
australia will win.
btw scags is italian, and told me he was going for Australia
but u should see the curves ive formed on the stomach i love touching myslef
there i said it.
Nesta is out, but Matrix had a very solid game vs Czech. And if you can have a solid game with the Czech, who the hell are aussies?? Cannavaro is having the time of his life, he has probably been the best defnder in the WC uptil now. I just hope we go with 2 plaeyrs upfront, Toni-Pippo, and remove Pettrotta from the middle.
Actually I hope, Helal's favourite player's like Cannavaro, Gattuso, Camronesi and Totti score.
And since Nesta is most probaby going to be available for the QFs, I wont mind if Martix do a Sorin on Cahill at the end of the match .
I just predict a huge Aussie-Italian war on this forum
CAMPIONE D' ITALIA 2008-2009.
Four game suspension for De Rossi. This means he can only come in the final game.
Good news. He isn't mentally capable of playing at this level.Originally Posted by Hamed
I won't stoop down to the level of "Italy has nothing, Australia have nothing, blah blah blah". We are favourites for a legit reason, and if Guus Hiddink alone could win games, then damn us for not signing him even if he's Dutch.
I definately wanted to face the Aussies instead of Croatia, though.
Nulla è impossibile per questa Inter

Nesta out is a huge blow, but don't overrate Matrix either. I mean yes he can be a dangerous moron that gives away constant FKs, but he is also a very good marker and I assure you will make Viduka non-existant. Cannavaro is also playing damn good so far.
I was going to mention that too. I think Grella will do the same for Totti who is unfortunetaly still struggling to find his form. Gattuso is always as solid as it gets and will take out Bresciano or whoever.a) Gattuso will meet his match, Vincenzo Grella who so far has daddy slapped Ronaldinho, Nakamura & Kranjcar.
Italy has better defense than any of the 3 teams you guys have faced. I think Australia are really going to have to up their game on set pieces because I doubt you will get a goal from open play.
Do we know how bad Nesta's injury is exactly?
