Question: What do the 1993, 1997, 2001 and 2005 Socceroo World Cup qualifying campaigns have in common?
Answer: Losing. And Tony Vidmar.
Its not a coincidence.
Are you crying because you suck, Tony Vidmar?
And here he is with his considerably more talented brother.
Imagine this: 80 minutes gone on Wednesday night at Telstra Stadium.
U-R-Gay corner kick.
Tony Vidmar on the far post.
Recoba fires in a gorgeous, flat, strong cross.
What happens next?
a) Tony Vidmar handballs it, Dario Silva converts from the spot.
b) Tony Vidmar goes to clear the ball off the line but it goes through his legs and into the back of the net (my personal favourite)
c) I run onto the field and shoot Tony Vidmar.
Also, I'd like to see some kind of soccer version of the recent cricket tests between Australia and the World XI.
Except the 'World' team would be made up of players from the Argentine, Iranian and Uruguayan squads of the past 10-12 years.
They could come out and totally kick the socceroos' arses. And the socceroos could kick own goals.
