Caught last mins and extra time.

I almost wanted Syria to win for their Hunger, Determination and Desperation that out weighed our own.

My objective opinion is that we are not worthy of a finals place.

This Aus team is bereft of anything remotely inspiring of my support.

looks like NRL and AFL have nothing to fear from Soccer in Australia for another generation or two yet
Why are you still a Tigers fan then...? :lol:
Yes CB, Tigers forever. We are perennial underdogs and thats my expectation.

The Soceroos have all the perks, chartered planes etc and they were mush.

one of the big issues in nrl is the use of the video replay.
what i loved about the aleague was its none use,i lovedthe way referees waved play on and got on with the game.
unfortunately, this afo a goal for brisbane was overruled by a stupid video replay.everone had the dirts with it apart from the jets.
rhe goal was disallowed as the attacker was marginally offside .
i hope the video thing is only a trial as it disrupts the flow of the game.the fact that i had brisbane for the draw is unimportant in the case.
i loathe the referral system.

VAR can only be used in four instances:

• Goal / no goal decisions
• Penalty / no penalty decisions
• Direct red cards (not 2nd yellow cards)
• Mistaken identity

Too much simulation in our game now so I don't think it's a bad thing that we have the VAR to help decide in those four instances.

No problems with VAR correcting a close offside decision if the replay is clear. If it's lineball then play on

Feel sorry for the Jets, losing Vargas so early in the season and decimating their squad and finals chances. They can get an injury replacement but he looked real quality and it would be hard to replace him with someone equal and get the fit so quickly.

I went to the Sydney derby. That was a good game. Shame Sydney didn't win.

The Jets have struggled in recent years so it would be nice to see them do well again. Will be a tough ask now but can see who Ernie lines up as a replacement
