Venables never lost a game in that World Cup qualifying series. In his 24 games as coach he helped Australia achieve a top 30 FIFA world ranking, which before then had never seen the Socceroos able to crack the top 50.

Just for the record, I remember his comment when asked why he didn't shut the game down " we are not good enough"

Best coach australia has ever had.

One of the best England have had as well.

Won leagues and cups in many other countries. Got his nation to the semi final in 96 but he's cabernet because australia didn't qualify?

Have you considered that he did bloody well to even get close?

So, it's only about that qualification. Only twice in your history have you qualified through the route that Venables had to take. So many variables to compare through that route as well. My mum could coach australia to a world cup now that they decided they were asian and took the easy route.

Venables got a very poor australia side within a whisker of a world cup, something only one person had ever done before. Yet, it's all his fault. He's crap :lol:

Did he do it with the same team at the same time? If not, then you are making a rather silly point.
