Rogic has shown many times that he is not yet up to the level required for an international, his WC was very, very poor.
He needs to be playing at a higher level to make the jump up in standard.

Taggart is another one who flatters to deceive.
Oar is the same, and I am yet to be convinced that Brattan is capable of making the step up in class.
I also think that Mooy is much better playing just behind the strikers, as a sort of No.10.

Rogic isn't the only player who was poor at the WC, i'm aware he isn't a top player but i don't think he is trash.
Mooy as N.10 wouldn't work, he should stay in the middle of the pitch as a sort of playmaker.
Btw in my squad there are other players who can play as a N. 10. Have you ever heard of Ajdin Hrustic?

About the other criticised inclusions:
Oar provides a lot of assists to the strikers, i would never drop him.
Taggart scores like clockwork in the A league.
Brattan is exactly the box-to-box midfielder that this team missed at the WC.

James Meredith should be there instead of those 2 at left back.

I hope not though, he misses two months if he makes the squad.

Good, keep him fresh for Saturday's game. Where was this game played, hope he doesn't have a long journey back.

Good result and style of play from the Socceroos. A very attacking style but that Kuwait defending was atrocious.

Born in South Sudan they said on Fox this morning (same as Deng from MV). Played juniors at St Augustine's in the E&D (coached by my brother there) then I believe went onto Playford feds for a short period of time before going to AU and then Europe.

Not questioning your facts PROFESSORE, but it has no relevance to this topic,

anyway llike always no one ever wins with you coz you know all so how dare i :arrow:

Still think the real week spot is the lack of quality striker , IMO McLaren has to be worth a decent run of game time.

What's a professore?

So discussing the goalscorer isn't relevant?

Good to know you can accept that, many have not woken up to it yet but they will.
