Monday Wrap:

Mark Bosnich commentating, Football this week, Gobby parents, Amy Taylor, Mr Anti-Football Peter Fitzsimons, and my teams for Euro2008

Football this week:

Gobby parents at Kuringai junior club have earned $6,000 for a national charity. They were told to keep quiet on the sidelines, see earlier report on this blog, but they couldn't.

No surprise there.

Amy Taylor Former Canberra football and Matildas star will co-host Fox Sports hunt for a Sydney FC player. Show starts soon.

Mr Anti-Football Peter Fitzsimons writing in the SMH on Saturday highlighted Ellyse Perry the Matilda who plays for the National cricket team.

Ha, he wants her to play cricket! Plonker Peter. I hope she ditches cricket and plays football. So there biased Peter.

My Euro2008 Teams

Well no Australia obviously all though 140 players play football in Europe compared to 80 Rugby League Aussies. And no Ireland. So I'm declaring my full support for two sides.

Sweden, because one of football's great men, great role models, and great strikers, Henrik Larsson is back in the squad. And I'm a big Celtic fan. Have I mentioned that?

And of course big support for Croatia. Canberra's Joe Simunic will be lining up and I'll be cheering Joe, of recent Nearpost radio fame, and his side home.

And of course I hope Joe is the last Aussie of Croatian origin to play for Croatia.

But then again I delighted in Celtic's Scottish wizard Aiden McGeady choosing Ireland, come to think of it add Everton's Kevin Sheedy, Liverpool's Ray Houghton and about 30 other "Irish" stars over the years.

Inter to win in Italy overnight?

And Nearpost Man United fan Russ Gibbs reckons it's United to win the Champions a goal, then again it could be Chelsea he thinks. Nice one Russ.

Me? The big game of the week apart from Adelaide United, Matildas and Socceroos is on Friday morning Australia time.

With Rangers drawing overnight, Celtic just need to win, just a win imagine, to grab the Scottish title. Aussie Scott McDonald, go on my son you can do it!

Mark Bosnich commentating:
Bozza is back, as a commentator. If you watched the FA Cup Final on SBS Bozza told it like it was. Too much chat Bozza but great to have you back in football.

And he's training on his own, so I guess rumours of his comeback are just that. If he hasn't got a club by now, he probably won't will he!
