thats mostly because their team is better than ours
Are they really better though? No doubt we're shit but I don't think NZ are any better than we are. A 5-0 win over the Solomons is like when we beat Nepal by the same margin. We're probably level-pegging with them tbh. It'd be interesting to see where NZ would finish up if they were in the AFC like us. I think they'd do enough to make the final round but probably sit at an Oman/Iraq level and just fall short of the play-offs.

I saw some of the recent Aussie games and I'd never heard of any of the players outside of Mat Ryan.

We're awful.

That's good I guess considering he's a left back.

EDIT - damn it, I should have clicked on to the next page before replying. :D

I reckon Spinazzola just shades Robbo but he's been out since the Euros.

Not sure whether this is unpopular or not, but I think once City win the league title this season there can be no dispute that Guardiola's Manchester City is the greatest English league side of the PL era (perhaps of all time).

4 out of 5 titles and won a bunch of domestic cups along the way. 100, 98, 95 point seasons - which are 1st, 3rd, =5th best in PL history. Individual players with the quality to rival any other team from any other era. Will add yet more titles in the years to come.
