Re: The road to Moscow

Anyone ever thought that the system needs to be changed because everyone in Asia has worked out how to beat it now? Physical power and speed are nno longer enough, we need to find players who can run with the ball without putting it twenty metres ahead of them and hoping no one wakes up to the fact...

Re: The road to Moscow

Of course I know it's not as simple as subbing another player in. But clearly he under-estimated the Thais thinking that a totally un-match-fit Kruse was up to 90mins. The talent pool isn't huge but IMO it's bigger than Ange is willing to go with at this stage. The Thai squad was entirely made up o...

Bangkok: Ange Postecoglou issued an ominous warning for several members of the Socceroos team that failed to beat Thailand, telling them to use the four-month break between international games to sort out their club futures if they're to remain in the squad. http://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/ange-...

Re: The road to Moscow

Not the most accurate use of statistics but they raise the point of why some players are getting regular sooceroos time without regular club time.

Socceroos Vs Kruse. How that bloke got 90 mins is beyond me. Any time the ball went near him that was the end of the attack. He must he played himself offside about 5 times.

Development-wise that sounds good. But the FFSA has zero fans. Who is going to attend an FFSA FC team? The point I see of a second club would be to offer a point of difference to AU. Whether that be location, representation or image. I can't see FFSA being significantly different to what AU represe...
