japan needs to marry the right coach. a brasilian coach doesn't have the style of rigor required. you should never marry in the same family, so don't have a japanese coach. this is why australia was unsuccessful for so long. we married dutch coaches - they fit well with our way of teacher- student. i think japan should have german or swedish coach - somebody serious about discipline and strategy. that would be a good marriage to japanese discipline and art

tulio outjumped giant kennedy to head a goal, and tim cahill is a medically certified midget, but outjumped everybody to head a goal. height is ultimately about as important as what brand of bucket the oranges are carried in. sorry. can't use that excuse either. and when you run out of excuses, start looking at the reality of the current team, coach and culture of japanese football. i think jap-aus are headed for a great and healthy ongoing rivalry, and it doesn't always go either way. total historic head to head after last night is 5wins each, 6draws, aus21-jap23 goals. can't get much more even than that.

nakazawa didn't play, kewell didn't play. emerton didn't play. both sides would have been 10 times better if, if, if. both were down roughly the same in quality. aus had an untried rookie and a one cap player in defence. both sides came in even. can't use that excuse, and okada will know that. if the rest of japan wants to bury its head in the clouds, then do so at your peril for 2010

neither side fielded a top team, so when 2 b-sides play, all is even. if aloisi was playing, it would have been a 3:1 repeat of germany. it should be a good reminder to japan that aus aren't so dumb. i was in jap during the 2006 wc, and they unwisely dismissed the aus team as a bunch of idiots. you haven't learnt from your mistake if you are talking about beating aus, or getting anywhere near the finals of the wc. (and i do love japan - it is my favourite country to be in :)
