The Best of #SokkahTwitter 2018 – Round 1-2
The second match up in the Round of 16.
In May 2018, on the eve of the Russian World Cup, Caltex servos across the country changed their name to Cahilltex. The Socceroo squad hadn’t been named yet and it made everyone believe Cahill would be selected based on 60 minutes of playing time all year.
The question remained: Is Cahill taking a World Cup spot purely for marketing purposes that was signed off on the proviso that Cahill is in the squad?
Today we honoured @Socceroos Australia’s greatest footballer, @Tim_Cahill in a world-first tribute. Five of our sites across the country transformed to #CAHILLTEX! #GoSocceroos Read more: https://t.co/d4guaYQYYK pic.twitter.com/RuNvCgfpWp

Music during corners and goal kicks
Outrageous. FFA know nothing of football culture and turning the A-League into the BBL.
Apparently Head of the A-League Greg O’Rourke was asked a question on how to bring back some atmosphere to A-League games and he said they were working with active supporter groups to try and achieve that. Someone asked him what about the smaller clubs?
His response was that some of the smaller clubs could utilise music during corners or goals kicks and other stoppages. Cue mis-quotes out of context and #SokkahTwitter on the offensive.
