Those Eight Mad Minutes in the Fritz Walter...

WHO will ever forget those Eight Mad Minutes in the Fritz Walter? Inside the stadium it was mayhem as thousands of Aussies, this nutter among them, went ballistic, jumping all over anyone in sight. At one point I remember picking up Matthew Johns - aka Reg Regan - who was seated a couple of rows behind, and lofting him above the shoulders. It was nuts.

Those eight mad minutes touched everyone, and now a fellow blogger, Melbourne-based Neil Zimmerman of Victory in Melbourne, has marked Tim Cahill's opener by launching an E-zine named the84thminute.

Neatly constructed (you'd expect nothing less from an architect) with the help of his better half, Caroline, it features analysis, blogger exposed and even follows the exploits of his indoor side as they search for that elusive first win, something most footballers have experienced.

For starters, the analysis section covers a range of topics, including a wrap by yours truly of the Socceroos first phase of qualifiers, Neil's preview of the Uzbeks ahead of the next phase of quals and a review by fellow Melbourne-based blogger Eric Daams of the Melbourne Victory's first ACL campaign.

Meanwhile, learn who Eamonn, of Football in the Capital, would have in his five-a-side team.

It's all there, so enjoy, and if you like what you see and you're keen to contribute, don't hesitate to touch base with Neil via
