Origin of the Socceroos

No game for us this week. Therefore no previews, a little less angst. But reading week old ephemera about last week's match isn't everyone's cup of tea, so time to put up something new.

Academic and Australian football historian Roy Hay is back in the country after a UK sojourn to cover the Olympic Games. Goal Weekly published this article of his last week or thereabouts, looking at where the 'Socceroos' name came from. You know we could've been the called the Emus?

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
