I was just wondering how you guys think our National Team will do in their first round of Asian/World Cup qualifiers? Like, would you consider us capable of challenging the 'Big four', do you think we'll sit in the group of nations just behind (Kuwait, China, Iraq etc) or do you reckon the move to Asia will see us stuggling with mediocrity? Personally I've always held the view that with the players Australia has at their disposal (Tim Cahill of Everton, Mark Viduka and Mark Schwarzer of Middlesborough, Harry Kewell of Liverpool, Ahmad Elrich of Fulham and Marco Bresciano and Vince Grella of Parma to name but a few), we should be performing alot better than we do. I think a large portion of the blame for this underperformance can be put down to the fact that Oceania's Australia so few chances to play meaningful matches together. Obviously membership of the AFC will change all this-and our boys will be playing competitive qualifiers etc frequently instead of silly, meaningless friendlies Oh and in case it wasn't reported anywhere else we also fired our absolutely useless national team manager of 6 years yesterday Which can only be a good thing... Although It might take a little while to get used to Asia, id have to give my verdict as absolutely no fear Bring on the big 4!
