Don't think he's a troll. His views are interesting, and he likes making threads a bit too much, but he's doesn't bait people, he's not agressive and he doesn't abuse the Eagles or our players. Pretty failed troll if that was the case.
You don't have to read him if you don't want to BB.
Yeh the A-League definitely doesn't. Average, average league that is home to washed up socceroos/players that lack technical ability. Nothing about it stands out in a positive way. The NSL was waaay better.
There is talent in the up and coming U/23 teams and so forth, for sure. My worry is whether we can get the best out of them. We lack the framework atm but if the country starts being serious about the sport, I think we can definitely be a very good team. I mean look at the US. I'm just not sure this country will invest that much time in soccer for us to be a powerhouse (okay not that good but you know ).
Though, our AFL team is currently a huge rabble aye?
Very true. Disgraceful commentary. David Basheer is just a knob.
Very proud of our effort, though but we still lack quality to compete. We play on heart and give it our best while the good teams can get results by playing at 60-70%. Not sure if we'll ever get to that stage.
I think we'll be fine next season onwards but this season we'll have to be go through the pain. I was sort expecting a tough season since we lost so much experience (1000 games worth, IIRC). Though the coaching staff have made some bizzare calls, it must be said.
