    They demolished Australia, but this is a very poor Australia team.

    Spurs have not had an AM of quality since Eriksen. And even then, when Deli was still firing on all cylinders, he was a good replacement (though move of a forward than midfielder). The danger is if Maddison goes down for any significant length.

    But the most impressive part from today's match, from the Spurs perspective, was on the defensive side. This was the first real test, and it was expected Arsenal had too much skill. As it was, an OG and a penalty and a howler. Perhaps there is something there for Spurs.

    One aspect worked well in that stuff was largely sorted out on the field without drama. For instance if you put in a cheapo, you could expect a good working over next time you were on the wrong side of the ruck, and you couldn't moan about it - especially the ref would not help you.

    If I'm a Chelsea fan, I'm saying "About damn time somebody spoke about how crap our club is, fire all those mother********ing bastards." And then I'm ordering from Domino's.

    Frankly, this is the poorest SANZAAR has looked in years and they will still likely get Three teams in the QF.

    Near the end of my playing days, we were playing out a match we'd already lost, and the other team was just as gassed as we were. We were mustering our final attack, and I thought, WTF, if I get the ball, I'll try for a drop goal, pull us within 20 or something. One of their guys, woefully offside (and standing with both his arms in the air making the international signal for "I'm having nothing to do with this play") clotheslines me as I go to run by him. Only a couple of people saw it, none of them the referee. For my part, I wasn't hurt, I was just confused: "why is there grass so close to my face?" etc.

    I get up, the whistle blows, the teams shake hands. After the match, we meet up at the local watering hole. The guy who clotheslines me goes around and asks if that guy has a wife or girlfriend here: my wife was ten feet away and was scowling at him (she was one of the people who saw it): he apologized and asked what my beer of choice was. About five minutes later, "allo, mate. Sorry I hacked you. Don't know what I was thinking." His wife was there and made a comment about how common that state of mind is, then asked me what my wife's favorite wine was. In this particular place, it was a shiraz. She bought a caraffe and tracked down my wife and apologized for her husband's unsporting play. Then they hung out and discussed how both of there husbands are getting a little too old for this (I was 42 and played one more full season. Both our wives were right, incidentally).

    Hey, they could be the Bears. Now that's a clown franchise. "We got Trubisky. It's all going to be different now." Me - "Hmmm, I don't see it." Them - "You don't understand football you idiot. He's not going to be a superstar in Year 1. But he's got it, you wait and see." Flash forward a few years. "We got Fields. It's all going to be different now." Me - "Hmmm, I don't see it." You know how it went from there. The same as it has for the last 35 years when I talk with them about Bears quarterbacks.
