What a huge exaggeration. There was no suggestion there that James usually doesn't want to score. In fact I'm sure he wants to score as often as possible, and shove it to the national side if he feels so inclined.



The idea that well Troisi kicked a goal for his club so Vucks can have the last laugh over our national teams performance at an international tournament, is almost embarrassing. End of story
I said Troisi is having the last laugh not Vuck fans you idiot. I’m bloody dissappointed at what happen in the Asian Cup, Arnold is a flog, the selections of his favourites really backfired on him and the Socceroos are in a real dire situation. It’s gonna be a hard slog qualifying for Qatar.

Other than Milligan and Grant, who of his favourites actually played ?? I mean Kruse perhaps, but for some reason every manager we have had has loved the bloke.

It was more his tactics than his selections that failed us.

I mean he did also have 4 of his best attackers missing for the tournament.

That's not to say hes the right bloke for it, he clearly isnt.

Now getting abusive and pedantic, nice! At least we agree it's a dire situation at hand

Really? Cos this is what the post I quoted said:

Troisi showed his true worth. Scored a goal, luckily, for Melbourne as an Australian to stick it in to the manager? When they just loss.
Yeah I’m happy he didn’t make the trip. Selfish and not appropriate given what happened the night before. Keep that stuff to your chest and get over it. But no he chose an Ego stroking time to do it. He had his moment in 2015. Be grateful for that.

Guaranteed Troisi wouldn't have scored if the Socceroos had have won. He set out to deliberately score purely to rub it in the national teams face, I heard from a good source he'd been practicing this celebration all week at training.

Just shows the character of the guy.
