When folks are really disappointed sometimes you hear this 4-letter word> darn.

Go Socceroos :)

Anybody remember "Drinka pinta, win the day" ?

So, a fellow named Norbert Neville would go by Nobby Noddy?

Disappointing US result, they had plenty of the ball and won possession back quickly. They just don't have any predators.
I also thought when they played 3 at the back with CCV at right centre back (I'm biased though) that they linked up better with their midfield.
It could have also helped against a flawless Dutch counterattack.
20 odd passes before their first goal was exquisite play.

No doubt this young US team will be a lot better in 4 years' time.

Now looking forward to seeing how well the "Socceroos" fare against the Argies.

Decent defending and we'd be watching extra time now.
Shame, it would have been great to see the Dutch sent packing.
I reckon you lot have the makings of a very decent team in 4 years.

Cheering the USA and Australia?!?
Two things I've never done before in my life.
It's been an odd tournament, that's for sure.

Phil and Garry Neville's father was cricketer and sports agent Neville Neville (cue Bowie song).

He would be Noddy Noddy.
The Noddy cartoon character is known in France as Oui-Oui.
So, in France Neville Neville would be known as Oui-Oui-Oui-Oui.

A Messi masterclass, an absolute joy to watch, even though I was rootin' for the Aussies.

Commiserations to the wild colonial boys.
I'm away to see if I can get a note out of my Didge in honour.
