Danny's Football Bluff

March 25th, 2013

In the A-League it’s all boiling down to the final week to see who will be in the finals. At time of writing Western Sydney Wanderers, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United are all locked into the top four spots, but the final two spots could go to Brisbane, Sydney, Perth or Newcastle. The big question remains – with AFL starting next week will the A-League get any media coverage? People are doubtful but if the FFA goes with my idea of a releasing an Emu in a woollen hat mid match, we may get on Sports Tonight’s play of the day.

All week World Cup Qualifiers have been played out all over the globe. Australia play traditional rivals Oman tomorrow night in Sydney of course, but what about the results you may have missed?
The most emotionally charged match of the weekend was definitely Croatia v Serbia, the first match between the two nations since the Balkan War. Flares were lit, fans clashed, arrests were made, all impressive considering no away fans were allowed into the ground. Serbia have promised the return leg will be just as firey. With all the emotion no one really noticed that Croatia won 2-0.

The emotions were just as intense at the clash of Azerbaijan v Luxembourg. Although this was not due to past political tensions but the results of the 2011 Eurovision song Contest. The post match dance off ended with five people being arrested for jazz hands related crimes.

Colombia smashed Bolivia 5-0. Which made the drug lords happy, then on edge, then tired, then angry, then horny, then listless, then STOP LOOKING AT ME!

In both footballing and financial bailout terms, Cyprus and Switzerland played out a 0-0 draw.

New Zealand saw off a plucky New Caledonia which ended with Shane Smeltz getting kicked in the face. Melbourne Victory’s assistant coach Kevin Muscat called it “The greatest moment in football history”

Paraguay and Uruguay played out an entertaining 1-1 draw to a sell out crowd, who by all accounts had a Guay Old Time! [I’m really sorry…I’ll stop now]

Goal of the Week –
