Our glorious cup run is over. I am very very tired, I have a meeting in eighteen minutes and I don't have any shoes on. I just proposed that we (workmates) go up to the Landsdowne Cafe for a lunchtime wake. But then I thought - can you have a wake when you are three-quarters asleep?
Enough nonsense about a "controversial" penalty. About 95% of penalties are controversial. Italy found a way to win, as I kind of knew they would. Good luck to them - they held on very well with 10 men.
Now - I am going to find an A-league team to barrack for and try to maintain my interest for the next 4 years. I just have to find one with a not-too-silly name (Queensland Roar are out of the running).
