Ryan Nelsen, whose team has won 5 of 32 games? Who doesn't even have the coaching qualifications to be an assistant coach in the HAL.

Today we had a 0-0 draw with T & T, 2014 is a write off,  we can only score goals against pacific island nations. Herbert

and Van Hattum need to go, NOW.




 



It's 2 games of football. Anything can happen. Sneak a draw or 1-0 loss away from home and it's game on. If we do well in the away leg it is 90 minutes of football. Imagine these circustances; 5 degrees, gale force winds, torrential rain at Westpac for the home playoff. In those conditions we would probably be the favourites.

Not sure why everyone is so gutted. Up until the start of the day we were resigned to having to play Mexico.

Nothing has changed.

Which in the middle of November, is not as likely as the middle of June........ The conditions you predict are about as likely as a draw or 1 goal loss at Azteca...

Looking purely at results, last 2 years Herbet's record for the AWs is 18 played, 11 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. 1 loss against New Caledonia the only real aberration

Right now to make those stats more meaningful, how many of those 18 games have not been against OFC teams?

I was in the states in feb-march this year and saw some concaf games, we wont hold them, that wont work, they are way

way too quick, we just need to go forward and say, hey we might concenced four goals, but if we can knick a couple ourselves,

then we have an outside chance. But since we cant score against T & T and didnt get a couple against the might of Venture

county fusion or Chivas, we are toast, thats it, put your house on mexico.

Against non-ofc teams, played 7, 2 wins, 3 draws, 2 losses. And only 1 of those games was played in NZ, which was a loss against Jamaica - so away from NZ it is played 6, 2 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss.

They need to get something  out of their last game away to bottom team Trinidad & Tobago to guarantee automatic qualification. 

Failing that both Panama (2 pts behind) and Honduras (3 pts behind with game in hand - play Costa Rica tomorrow) could overtake them, and slip into 3rd - and automatically off to Russia.

I'm sure Socceroos keeping a watchful eye on events.
