Trent Sainsbury

The FOX trio of Simon Hill, Tom Smithies and Daniel Garb have weighed-in on the possible new Socceroos captain - and they agree unanimously it should be Trent Sainsbury. It's an issue we alluded to several times prior to, and during, the World Cup, particularly in light of the almost constant reference to Mark van Bommel being Bert van Marwijk's son-in-law. Our question then was why is it relevant to keep mentioning it? Consider this report quoting Hill, Smithies and Garb raising the issue as a means of getting it out of the way. 

The FOX boys are right: ONCE Mile Jedinak is no longer captain, Sainsbury is a worthwhile candidate for the job, and he should be considered on his merits, as should any other potential candidate. 

Adelaide United

Val Migliaccio reports that Adelaide United's Jordan Elsey is a “definitive member” of the leadership group at the club which includes captain Isaias, as well as Elsey, Vince Lia and Michael Jakobsen. Elsey, Mirko Boland and Jakobsen are pictured in the new Adelaide United strip for 2018-19. 

Perth Glory

Sometime Socceroo Chris Ikonomidis has signed with Western Australia Wanderers Perth Glory on a three-year deal providing further fire power to a squad that is looking stronger and better every day - as well as with some familiarity to Tony Popovic's former Wanderers.

Some like it hot

We're talking about curry! Some like it hot, but Tim Cahill - now resident in India - doesn't. Cahill has given a “wide-ranging” interview to an Indian paper, reported here locally, where he says he consulted his good mate, Brett Lee, before committing to play in the Indian Super League. Cahill say he wants to play on as long as he can and be a good example to Indian players.
