“It will be a cake walk—as the result against Japan, has fired a rocket up the Socceroos’ backsides”

Hmm unfortunately (and frustratingly) how many times have both fans and pundits said this? How the bad press will reinvigorate the Socceroos, how the 3 back system will walk over the Asian opposition.

How did we go in Bangkok? How did we go in Tehran? How did we go in Saitama?

Obviously playing against your biggest regional rivals is not enough to fire up the players.

“The crowd will be electric and relentless”

Last few home games have been dour atmosphere. Not intimidating at all playing there compared to other stadiums.

Could a Thailand loss be the Socceroos' dream scenario?

Christian running away from the hard questions haha.

Christian Montegan says: Our country’s footballers are terrible BECAUSE we have no one playing at big clubs in Europe

Christian Montegan says: Japan and rest of Asia are terrible.

BUT have a look at the Japanese players in Europe.
They are at big clubs in big leagues. They play big minutes. Two are captains.
Look at their weekend playing times.

So does that mean Christian the number of players at big European clubs is irrelevant to that country’s playing stocks???

Please clarify.

Shinji Okakaki in 2016/2017 in EPL

Brilliant. Luke just told you your article is incompetent. And you are frothing over that.

“I said their standards have dropped with Japan not producing the same players they once did is an example”

Really? Check out the number of first team Japanese players in the Bundesliga.

There were nowhere near as many previous generation of players in Europe. Which Japanese players did the country “once did” produce? Any names?

Gotoku Sakai. 26 years old. Young for a captain. Captain of Hamburg.

Makoto Hasebe is captain at Frankfurt. Yuto Nagatomo also captained Inter.

Christian Montegan: Japan and rest of Asia are terrible.

BUT have a look at the Japanese players in Europe. They are at big clubs in big leagues. They play big minutes. A few are even captains in the Bundesliga.

Explain that.

How has the quality of Asia declined????????

“Japan are a perfect example of that”

Please explain.

If I remember Japan have beaten France and Belgium in Paris and Brussels inside the last 3 years.

Read all the comments! Everyone knows you’re not making sense. Even you know that!

Seriously, read the comments! They all reckon you’ve lost your marbles.

Lack of Aussies playing regular football overseas a cause for concern

You are allowed to disagree.

But only if you present arguments which make sense. Which you never do.

Because you realise you never had any arguments to begin with.

I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.

“So how are we producing better players than ever before Waz??”

2007 Asian Cup – Eliminated in the quarter finals
Schwarzer, Neill, Cahill, Culina, Grella, Kewell, Bresciano and Emerton

2015 Asian Cup – Champions

With your stupid logic then this generation are better. But of course, like Waz mentioned there are too many variables which your pea-sized brain cannot comprehend.

Lack of Aussies playing regular football overseas a cause for concern

You never disappoint demonstrating your stupidity and ignorance you dummy.

At least everyone knows that now. Copping a brutal one today.

“We should be steamrolling our group, but no.”

Are you serious? We should be steamrolling our opponents?

You clearly have NO IDEA about Asian football. Maybe pay credit to our opponents? Maybe Asian football is improving dramatically?

Why should be we destroying our group? Why? Tell me a reason? Since when have we dominated Asia?

You know the golden generation you are obsessed with did not even make it to the semi finals of the Asian Cup in 2007.

Stop mouthing off at everyone when you are a deluded maniac!

Christian has the IQ of a sloth with dementia.

He will make ridiculously stupid statements without making any coherent argument. Instead he will ignore anyone making sense and keep repeating the same thing over and over again.

The guy is incredibly stupid.

Your standard weekly rubbish delivered to you by Christian.

“But it’s time to put the whole sorry saga behind us and attempt to unify Australian rugby.”

Yeah right. The game is now shattered more than ever.

Cannot wait to see a half empty stadium for the first Bledisloe. Maybe then the ARU will realise how much damage has been done through their sheer incompetence.

There must be some positives about Australian rugby, right?

Classic Christian Montegan logic of reasoning.

Maybe it’s because the rest of the world is improving dramatically in producing quality of footballers?

Look at playing roster of clubs across Europe and not just the “big ones”.
Belgium. Holland. Austria. Portugal. Switzerland. Turkey. Poland. All these clubs have a players from all over the world. Think back to the golden generation. These same clubs would have nowhere near as diverse players simply because the world was a much bigger place back then. Australians had a massive advantage in that they were fluent English speakers and the cultural connections with England made it easier.

You mention Culina at PSV Eindhoven. Currently Brad Jones, Adjin Hrustic and Craig Goodwin are doing quite well in Holland.

True, but doesn’t Al-Shaza’s point still stand Nemesis?

Australia is ranked number one in netball and current gold medal holders of Rugby Sevens at the Olympic games.

Highlights: Champion Matildas hit Brazil for six

It was sad seeing a small crowd of under ten thousand at Canberra but not surprising and really does reflect the disillusioned fans within the Rugby community in Australia.

Even if the Brumbies were playing in the grand final on a warm afternoon against world class opponents I really doubt it would attract more than fifteeen thousand.

The Lions crowd at Ellis Park was just as bad for a team finishing overall first and that was a sunny afternoon game,

The Wrap: Finals a rare win for SANZAAR, but is it too little too late?

Cristian Montegan

Yet again running away from arguments which tear his theories to shreds

The Premier League has more money than sense

Christian Montegan.

This is how you make a statement and then back it up with statistics and valid arguments

Instead you make blindly state an opinion as if it is really obvious to any football fan then write vague non-specific generalizing sentences as your arguments.

“Pretty sure Bonucci is the best centre back in the world…”

Well, you seemed pretty confident here as if it’s obvious Bonucci is the best centre back by a country mile. Nice work pleb

The Premier League has more money than sense

Yeah so Montella is just as clueless as myself. He knows nothing about football too (insert cute emoji)
