    There MUST be a talented Japanese manager available - Mr.Sasaki would be great as others have mentioned. But sadly, I doubt the JSA will consider a local - it seems the soccer fraternity in Japan have very little confidence in the ability of Japanese coaches which is unfair. It will go to some semi-retired European or South American who was a great coach... 30 years ago.

    Ohhhh yeeeahhhh! Well done Socceroos! Great Final, well played to the Koreans also. Franjic and Matty Ryan were sensational at the back! We scored the most goals in the comp by far and fully deserved the silverware.

    AUSTRALIA - ASIAN CHAMPIONS!

    Well done! Shingo won't get any of the write-ups and praise of Nishikori...but he is a MAJOR winner!

    Good attitude. He is just a kid and still has at least 10 years to win plenty of Majors. Looking forward to Kei and Aussie kid Kyrgios dominating for the next decade!

    Interestingly, all 300 of these dropkicks stated : "I had been drinking heavily and don't remember anything."

    @ Tokyo-star - thanks. I had assumed Haruna had already been executed. I guess even an 11th hour conversion to Islam won't save these poor souls. These barbarians are surprisingly media-savvy and will try and play the Abe administration for all they are worth...

    Alarming news. Just hoping the Japanese govt. doesn't cave in and make the payment. Can anyone confirm if one of these hostages - Haruna - is the alleged "soldier of fortune" newhalf reported captured several months ago?

    It's terrible, but skiing off-piste is like swimming outside the flags in Australia

    Very true words, Lazybones - but jeez its fun. Especially when there are a million other people on piste/between the flags. Rest in Peace to the victims and ski/board safe, everyone.

    @ Kurobune - he will win 3 Majors this year in my humble opinion. The mood is all behind Kei here in Australia (of course after Aussie kid Kyrgios!)

    Always good to hear the Aussies lose .......biggest whingers of them all when it comes to losing at sport

    Seems like you may have been burnt by us Aussies on the sporting field in the past, eh Fred?!

    Korea deserved to win, the Socceroos are still a pretty ordinary side that was pumped up by the press and coach after bullying a couple of gulf teams. Without Cahill and Kruse they had nothing in attack. There is a very real chance the Chinese could beat us in the QF...

    Skytree-high costs

    Funnily enough, almost all of my friends and family who visit comment on how affordable things are in Japan compared to Australia and Europe! Perhaps it is the perception that Japan is mega-costly that still exists in those who have not visited.

    @ Kitzrow - cheers for the tip, mate! Always on the lookout for good links! Holidaying back home in Aus right now, they aren't even showing the Socceroos games live on free-to-air...

    Sports Nippon quoted people in attendance as saying that Abe was visibly shaken by the words.

    Visibly shaken? Oh, the poor petal. The man is in the wrong game if he cant cop a bit of silly banter.

    About 30 people went to his agencys Shibuya office on Jan 11 to protest his behavior.

    No doubt the Abe fans turned up in their usual black vans and jack-boots.

    Poor boy, I hope that he recovers fully very quickly. The mental trauma he had inflicted upon him by the violent child-abuser could take many years, sadly.

    Just hoping that the cowardly thug/child-abuser Kazuhiro Taniguchi gets locked away for a very, very long time - and is forever precluded from any contact with any child.

    Beautiful lady! Agree with OneHapa - she looks Thai or Vietnamese to me too. I'm sure she has a shot at winning...

    Well done to the big Canadian. Unbelievable serving. I still think Kei-San will win the big one though. Maybe he was just saving himself?!

    Hopefully Daiichi learns a lesson that certain dodgy practices perfectly acceptable in Japan are outlawed overseas. They sure need a shake-up if they want to operate outside Japan - and new legal advisors!
