Re: 2018 World Cup qualification

Hey eujin, all good points but do you know how it is that Syria can field a team to begin with? I have been basically insulated from the rest of the world the last two years and have snippets only to go by. According to some media outlets half of the country is in Poland, converting everyone to isla...

Re: 2018 World Cup qualification

Hi all, can someone with better geopolitical grasp explain how it is that Syria is the play-offs and Uzbekistan has (yet again) failed at this stage?

Re: Europe general 2017/18

Hope you guys are well. I miss the banter on this page: so I especially came back after he Rangers result. Taiwan is a bit of a hole when it comes to football. I play Sunday league and one of the national players joins us to keep fit. There are two states in Taiwan: alcoholism and workaholiism. I do...

Re: Proposed "ASEAN Super League"

BUT Could ASEAN Super League be answer for LionsXII and Wellington? Wellington Phoenix's A-League future is in doubt after their 10 year licence extension application was rejected. And as New Zealand celebrate their record third Rugby World Cup triumph, the nation's only professional football team, ...

Re: Olympic qualifiers / AFC U-23 Championship

Qatar 1-3 South Korea South Korea scored in the midst of the second half, but gave up an equalizer with just minutes to go. But Korea pulled ahead in what appeared to be the 89th minute, and then scored a third during the five minutes of stoppage time. That's South Korea qualified for the 2016 Summ...

Interesting. It'd true that the opposition has not been stellar, especially in the second half of the year.

Re: Olympic qualifiers / AFC U-23 Championship

I think that broke a run of 5 straight qualifications. Were they all from the OFC? In 2008 they qualified from Asia. In 2004 they qualified from the OFC, 2000 they were hosts, 1996 via OFC but also had to play Canada in a paly-off, in 1992 via OFC but defeated the Netherlands in the play-offs (they...

Re: Olympic qualifiers / AFC U-23 Championship

It breaks my heart to hear that Australia will not qualify for the Olympics yet again (not that going back to the OFC would necessarily help). Curiously enough I was having a nightmare last night that Australia were suddenly good at rugby and I was having to explain to two American friends why I wa...

Re: South Korea v Myanmar (12/11/15) & Laos (17/11/15)

I had a look at Korea's record for 2015 and I wonder if it is not their best. 20 matches: 16 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss conceded goals in only three matches, goal record 44-3 (I did a quick count so it might be +/- a few) The only loss against Australia in extra-time of the AFC Asian Cup (in front of 77 ...

Re: Olympic qualifiers / AFC U-23 Championship

Been watching a bit...South Korea look the business. Aussies do not. You weren't wrong there: a loss against UAE meant that Australia had to beat Jordan on the last day. However, it ended 0-0 and they have been eliminated (finishing 3rd in their group). Interestingly, Australia accumulated more poi...

Re: South Korea v Myanmar (12/11/15) & Laos (17/11/15)

Once over, qualification for the next round will be as good as in the bag. Qualification as group winners was assured for Korea after FIFA sanctioned the Kuwait FA following the non-playing of their qualifier against Myanmar on November 17th and Myanmar were awarded a default 3-0 win. That puts Kor...

Re: 2015 World Club Cup

So while in general I think you are right, I still think Auckland is under-performing. Underperforming because they lost 2-0 in Japan to the champions of Japan? Haha, man you have a talent. Yes, I used the wrong term. I should've said that the performances were not as good in Japan as they are else...
