In a fucking friendly, meaning a-league teams lose their players for the first round.

Antonis will miss five of the first eight games because of international duty (and that's not including the injury he's bound to pick up).

Holger admitted last night that he didn't know Tommy Oar was being played as #10 at Utrecht.

Already pretty nervous about the game against Iraq in Doha next Wednesday morning...

Our recent record against Iraq outside of Australia -
Australia 1 bt Iraq 0 (0-0 after regular time), Doha, 2011
Iraq 1 bt Australia 0, Dubai, 2008
Iraq 3 bt Australia 1, Bangkok, 2007

Recent record in Australia -
Australia 1 bt Iraq 0, Brisbane, 2008
Australia 2 bt Iraq 1, Sydney, 2005

Iraq (like us) haven't won a match yet in World Cup qualifying, drawing away with Jordan 1-1, drawing in Doha against Oman 1-1, and only narrowly losing away to Japan 1-0, where Iraq had chances to score.

Zico changed the entire Iraq starting 11 for the Japan game compared to the Oman game, wonder if that could work as a positive for us if he continues to use the inexperienced players

I don't have the greatest confidence in us when we play away.... still, trying to be optimistic for this match. C'mon lads

Expecting a dire 1-0 win which will go on to justify Holger sending out the pensioners in the next ten games.

Always go the power nap route. No more than 45min as you risk going into deep sleep, and have an espresso about 30min before.

I'm thinking I can combine the two: set an alarm, but continue with le booze. If extreme unscheduled napping occurs, fire off an espresso when the alarm goes off.

What could possibly go wrong?

Problem with an espresso when you wake up is it will take 1 to 1.5 hours to hit, then keep you awake for up to 6 hours. So in other words, good luck getting back to sleep after.

So you'll be tired during the game, then wide awake when it finishes.

am going to IQ it, and watch at 6.30am without seeing the score.

I am not brimming with confidence.

Nah man, an espresso takes effect within 20-30 minutes, tops. Hell, I used to be still halfway through my first espresso of the day when I'd need to poo.

FACT.

It's more the aroma and start effects. The full stimulant effect is usually more than an hour. Well at least for me. I timed this shit for uni exams

There was a while there where I was all about expresso in a misguided attempt at trolling. The only person I trolled was myself.

I medicated myself with certain amount of V that is specific on the time during all-nighters. Don't want too much in case I get it done earlier than expected but also don't want not enough to stay awake and power through.
