Hrustic looks real quality, looks to also work extremely well with Mooy which was Rogic's main criticism and his end ball looks absolute class, the best in the side, including Mooy.

Is also in great form, recently in the Erevidise team of the month.


With Arzani and Boyle also about to hit full fitness in the next 1-2 months, we will have quite a few options. Especially as Leckie also sat out this round of matches.

I don't think Milligan at 34 and Sainsbury who has barely played for the last 18 months, should be walk ups anymore. Milligan strugled in the SPL with Hibs last year and we have a player in Degenek playing Champions League football at the moment and a 20 year old in Souttar who clearly is a real threat to Asian sides at set peices. We should be pumping games into Souttar, he looks like someone we can build the defence around for the next decade. You'd think he will play alot of football at Stoke next year, especially if they are relegated to L1.

20 year old John Iredale at Wolfburg is another to keep an eye out for.

He's leading German 3rd division goal scoring with Wolfburg II at the moment, with 10 goals in 13 matches.

Souttar is our dangerous new weapon

What a start for Harry Souttar. A goal on debut last week, and now two goals in his second match. He was the 44th player to score on Socceroos debut, and the first since Awer Mabil last year. Now, he’s become just the 16th player to score in their first two matches for Australia. The most recent? Aaron Mooy, who managed to net in each of his first three matches for Australia (2012-13).

Anyway, back to big Harry. His addition to the line-up adds a dangerous new weapon to Graham Arnold’s arsenal. Australia are now a threat at every set-piece, particularly when Ajdin Hrustic is on corner duties.
