So with BVM sounding like he might be an assistant at PSV, do we expect anyone to go play for them in the Eredivise? Maybe Arzani (and get loaned out to a smaller European club)?

I'd prefer Arzani stay in the A-League than go to PSV only to play in the Eerste Divisie or something.

What about Rogic? Is PSV a step up from Celtic or a sideways move?

Pretty sideways, but maybe a change in style in terms of competition could help him. Sainsbury maybe, but I doubt he becomes the preferred Centre Half at a club like PSV

Sainsbury could be a decent shout. Keen on a move to Europe and read he would be happy to set down roots at a club for the rest of his career if it's a good fit. Another few strong performances and he'll have a few options available IMO.

Arzani probably should err on the side of caution and get more minutes under his belt, still got his whole career to try his luck in Europe. Quite a few before him have perhaps moved abroad too early and not kicked on due to not playing regularly. Though if he can get assurances on playing time, might be a good chance for him to play and train in a squad with higher calibre players.

Despite the penalty, I thought Risdon had a decent game given the immense threat of the French forwards, might be another who is considered for a move abroad.

Hopefully he chooses to play for Iran...

Anyone know how an Aussie by the name of Ben Folami is faring at Ipswich? Young up and coming striker.

I remember reading about his debut back in April I think? Pretty sure he has since signed a new deal at the club and probably hoping to break further into the first team this coming season.

Played 5 games in the Championship in 17'/18' (More than Tim Cahill tbh), and banged them in the u/18's and u/23's for them.

He's definitely the best shout over the next 4 years, he should definitely be included in the Asian Cup Q's squads to get involved.

Doubt we'd take him back. He didn't win many friends with his attitude towards the club last season.

I doubt he'll have to come back anyway. He'll have other suitors across Asia.
An article on sbs says he has so far turned down 5 offers in Europe, I find that hard to believe. He did look ok at centre back versus France, but is a bit short to be a centre back

Milligan has been incredibly overrated to me. If he came back to the Jets no one would have cared.

Still find it amazing he was once a target for Arsenal.

Can hold up the play but... what else? No real weapons.

Calum Elder started for Leicester in a friendly overnight.

I think you will find him in the Socceroo's very soon.


Talk of a 2 year loan deal to Celtic for Arzani.....blah. Would much rather BVM/Van Bommel at PSV.

Positive thinking: He'll be playing with Rogic so they can develop some more chemistry.
