A-League

Perth Glory captain, Andy Keogh (pictured), says his side is looking to make amends quickly after the thrashing at the hands of Sydney FC. He makes the point that a 6-0 scoreline against you is, maybe, one in 300 to 500 games over a career, and the senior players are working hard to help the younger players deal with it. They play Adelaide United tonight. 

Sydney FC's Milos Ninkovic says his stunning goal v Newcastle Jets is the best of his career so far. Is Serbia watching?

Josep Gombau says his preference is to sign a player with A-League experience to replace Jumpei Kusukami. Gombau says the league is played in summer, the weather is hot, there's no breaks for players and they have to be fit - so the more they know about it, the better.

Never short of a word, Massimo Maccarone says he can do better than he has so far in the past month, firing a warning shot ahead of the clash v Western Sydney Wanderers.

Socceroos coach

In this week's A-League Confidential from News Corp, they mention that Gerard Houllier and Andy Roxburgh are the two international experts included on the advisory panel. They also suggest that 70 and 74 years is not the 'flush of youth'. Obviously they haven't heard that 70 is the new 50. 

Tony Popovic

Tony Popovic says he doesn't regret his decision to leave Western Sydney Wanderers days before the new A-League season. Despite the short-lived and tumultuous experience in Turkey, he still wants to coach in Europe.
