Socceroos

Mile Jedinak’s presence is making an immense difference in the squad, and will do also on the field, Ange says, while Tim is progressing nicely.

Jedi says he has no plans to retire from international football and is focused on defending the Asian Cup in 2019. Reported in Fairfax by Dom Bossi also.

Marco Monteverde says the Socceroos have to balance pragmatism with attacking football. Will they?

While the local people have been warm and friendly, it’s a different story when it comes to the match-day stadium which is referred to locally as ‘The Tomb’ “thanks to its reputation as the final resting place for the ambitions of a string of visiting overseas coaches.”

He won’t walk when we qualify says Tomi Juric of Ange. We agree Tom. 

Meanwhile, Tomi reveals that he has prepared for this game by sitting in a sauna for 15 minutes after every training session at home in Lucerne to help him get used to the heat and humidity in Honduras.

A-League

Surely even Arnie is challenged by what more he can say about Sydney FC. Here he says – again – that they can only get better.

Wout Brama said he had won everything he could and he wanted a change in lifestyle. So he joined the Central Coast Mariners.

He’s b-a-a-a-a-ck! Contrite, positive, and ready to win.

Attacking, one-touch football is coming to you, Western Sydney!

Two months ago if anyone said local journos would be writing, and we’d be reading, articles about a club in Turkey that doesn’t pay its bills and is getting a new President, we’d have been sceptical to say the least. But it’s happening.

FFA Congress

It’s a big month for Australian football, writes David Davutovic, but it’s not just about what happens tomorrow and Wednesday. The end of the month is just as vital.

It’s been reported elsewhere and the day before, but another iteration of the AAP report on the FFA Congress machinations.
