Re: EPL 21/22

Arsenal switched on during the first half in the derby to lead 3-0.

Might have gone to 4-0 in the second half when there was shove in the back of Partey.

Gunners gotta keep this momentum going now.

Re: Socceroos World Cup Campaign

Vietnam v Australia 0-1. A header by ex-mullet man Rhyan Grant just before half-time.

Horrible pitch, terrible humidity, scrappy performance but got the win thankfully.

Re: Socceroos World Cup Campaign

Good start in this second phase of qualifying with a 3-0 win over China. The shock in this group was Japan losing 0-1 at home versus Oman, which will help Australia’s cause. Very heartening to see some of the Olyroos stepping up to the senior team, including Gawler boy Riley McGree. Now on to Tuesda...

Why?

10-0 would be good
Can’t see that happening, Bomber.

I remember in a previous campaign they dragged us to high-altitude (6,500-feet) Kunming for a 0-0 draw, then beat us 1-0 in front of 70,000 in Sydney.

5-1 win against Taipei this morning.

Good corners by McGree with towering man mountain Harry Souttar getting on the end of the first one.

Hrustic emerging as a midfield playmaker and Karacic proving to be a better right-back than ex-mullet man Grant.
