the boys after our last game

We were shattered – not much of a surprise there

Several options were available to us:
1) drink alcohol
2) keep singing
3) go mental


















we did all of them a lot!





When we pieced ourselves together we led a charge to our favourite Bar Gusto (from last time in Kaiser)



































This involved marching and singing from the stadium to the bar – about a 40 min (3km) journey thru the main street of town and throngs of bystanders – our group of 8 was joined by many onlookers…





































See video / audio below

We sang Australia! Lalalalalala at the top of our lungs ….
Most of us two days on still no longer have a larynx!



























police had to rescue the slightly deflated roo - we needed similar treatment!



















crez's breakdance attempt to get over depression?
























































Enjoy our tribute to Men from Down Under

Till next time

Enjoy the pics of Boys on the Hill during our finest hour!

the italia match

Feeling confident of a victory
As the fans we had done everything we could to will the boys onto victory!





































During the Game - We never stopped singing never stopped willing the lads onto win



Their captain, Mark Viduka, paid special tribute to the Australian fans. "They were just awesome. It was like having another player on the pitch."

The shenanigans you get up to between matches.....

Some people go for that cultural let’s see sights and all that.




















Not so for the boys on the hill

Let’s say it involved consuming masses of alcohol – do that guy!

Smash that guy!











































































































































After the first Australian victory we found ourselves in the same bar for close to 24 hours and about 2000 euros later… we all had a free bitburger t-shirts … do that guy!






































After several days of drinking levels never know to man - it started to take it’s toll in the forms of unknown bowel movements, gastro, numbness of the face, jumping off bridges!























All in all I think one thing can be agreed upon – there are a lot of European wiiirrddds! Here is a selection of the biggest we have come across.
