Wellington 1 v Perth 1 and CCM 2 - Sydney 1... no more drinking when the pub shuts down...

Umm. Let's start with the Wellies v Perth. Not such a great game. Nik R missed a sitter in the second half. Then Straight away Smeltz got himself one-on-one with Tando the keeper. First short brilliant save. Rebound - sky'ed over the bar. I did that in a cup final once. But I was 10 and we won anyway. Great goal from Dadi.

I think Kossie could be gone. If not now they at the end of the season. Frank Lowy got him there and with frank gone. And new ownership - The Ramsey Health people I think plus Russian gizzionaires - well its going to be all change.

The Roar need to Newcastle tonight. Can they without Miller? And with Newcastle at - what is for them - just about full strength. If Newcastle attack, as they are saying they will, it could be a big Roar win. Otherwise Joel Griffiths could make it the same old story. 7 goals from 7 Roar games...

John: "Can they win without Miller" - of course, they have Mitch Nichols :)

I was never as enthusiastic about Nichols as you have been, I get it now, he did a great job.

First time I ahve seen him play more than about 15 minutes at a time.

Unfortunatley I'm out of town until after the Wellington game. How about a beer before the first home game of the new year?
