Think this was meant to be "Ken Hinckley picking the brain of Gertjan Verbeek...." wasn't it?

Ah, sorry. i have never heard someone refer to the Adelaide team as 'united' before.
Adelaide United is completely the wrong name for that club. Adelaide Generic is what it should be.

They lost any and all presence we had as a city in the Australian soccer landscape, which initially came from our continental European communities, and applied the most generic name and uniform they could copy from the world of English soccer.

It's such a boring, bland sport franchise that even the 36ers have more appeal.

NUFC, YES.

Meanwhile, the national team had to scour Scotland for mediocre footballers with Australian grandparents with the alternative being Tim Cahill shuffling around until he was 50.

Such a wonderful leap forward, the A-League.

I agree, wasn't the idea that t would 'Unite' the split city of Crows and Power fans. I love soccer, but can't be doing with them!

Awful name though, they should push Reds more.

That's the trouble. Picking someone's brain implies recognition of deficiencies and a desire to learn - Ken seems to think he's got it all covered and doesn't need to take anything on board from anyone else.
Kern pulls Verbeek close and whispers in his ear the secret to success, “it’s simple” Kern says with a grin, “ya just gotta work hardery”

“But!” says Verbeek, “what if the other team is working hardery too?!”

“That’s easy. You just tell ya boys to work hardery for longery.”

I'm a United fan. This year the club is playing attractive soccer and scoring lots of goals. Very enjoyable to watch compared to the grind that Port serve up. Verbeek probably had a quiet chuckle to himself after listening to Ken's coaching philosophies
Sheffield United have been taking it to teams. They are not doing too bad.

United fans will be like sack Verbeek.

Adelaide united are having a horror start, with scoreless games after implementing Ken Hinkley's tactics.

Adelaide United, the 36ers and The Redbacks are all just Crows Lite.
