I'm still stunned! What a terrible way for the game and our world cup to end!

Well, the Europeans are certainly not going to let any outlanders score, you know. Poor Brazil.

I saw the highlights and I have to say it didn't look like a penalty to me. Tough luck for the socceroos.

Peter what is with you....soccer and boobs and you want me to think
you don't have an obsession....what else is there?

I'm just asking :)

You are such a sweetie you know that if not consider yourself told.

I hope you enjoyed the games! Have a wonderful day. BTW I just love that cube. That is so cool!

Sorry your team lost. Of course ours has been out of it for a while.

Not happy, we were robbed, the ref was wrong ... why were they so ignorant with stuff that happened. They made a few wrong calls ... what are they, blind, or do they have blinkers against the Aussies.
Oh well, that's that then.
Hope you had some sleep eventually.
We've been out all day, I want to go to sleep, now ... yawn !!
Take care, Meow

Hi Peter ~~ Glad you liked the "Later than you Think" post. We seem to have got a raw deal from the refs. Even when
we played Japan, the ref apologised for missing the attack on our goalie, that
gave Japan their only goal. I think Hoss
may have it right. Sad way to end, but they really done us proud.
Take care, Merle. At least no more all
nights TV sessions.

It was sad to see the Soceroos campaign come to such an end with that awful decision, but as they say the umpire's decision is final. They sure did us proud while they were there.

I became interested in soccer just before the world cup. What a way to get interdouced to it. I love the game.
