krazykitkat: (celebration (WW))

In case someone's been under a rock, Australia is through to the final 16 of the World Cup! 2 all draw with Croatia was enough.

But I think there's another sign that the world is coming to an end, the English press is blasting the ref (English) on our behalf.

English newspapers have served it up to Graham Poll, blasting the country's supposed best referee for his "thick" handling of the Australia vs Croatia game.

Poll had reportedly been in line to officiate the World Cup final, but a "bizarre" effort should ensure the game was his last in this tournament, they said.

Calling Poll "Three Card Thick" The Sun's football writer was aghast Croatian defender Josip Simunic survived a trio of yellow cards before being marched off.

"Graham Poll could have cost Australia a place in the World Cup last 16 with a staggering blunder," he said.

"If the Aussies HAD gone out, FIFA may have been left in the embarrassing position of having to order the game to be played again, which would have thrown the tournament into chaos."

I have been under a rock, and YAY Australia!!

Also, I'm seriously considering making my trip down there for next year. When is the best time of year to come? I'm going to do tours, and hotels and things, most-like, wise?

Weather-wise...probably autumn (March/April) or spring (September/October), less extremes.
