But would you agree that his reasoning was fair enough?

Andrew Durante on why he left the Wellington Phoenix and his future in football

Thanks a lot, Mike.

Thanks, Hog. It was interesting to hear that he left Wellington because he felt he had done everything he can for them, and it’s given perspective to the decision.

Thanks, Lionheart. He was brilliant to talk to.

Thanks a lot, Samuel. I have done a series on younger A-League players and I have an interview with Nigel Boogaard in this format coming up in the next few weeks. Andrew was brilliant to answer all the questions with such depth and it was great to be part of that. It’s hard to find players who are willing but I’ll try my best!

Thanks, Stevo. I agree that the comment about Maclaren was accurate. He’d be a nightmare to play against, and it’s interesting to see that his perspective on the field is similar to a fan’s perspective from the stands.

Hi Mahler, thanks a lot. I was honoured to interview him and it was generous of him to be so honest with his answers. I really enjoyed conducting the interview.

I would love to see that, but the government has classified singing as a dangerous way of spreading the virus, so it is probably unlikely that we will see that happen.

What will look different with the return of the A-League?

I agree it would benefit TV viewers which therefore allows people to be more invested emotionally in the game.

I actually think Basha has been quite decent this season, although I do agree that Melbourne Victory has had some bad luck with injuries.

Could Melbourne Victory bounce back next season?

I agree, about Thomas. He has not looked the same since last season’s semi-final.

I agree that the list of players may not be great. However, that’s good because Melbourne Victory have the freedom to not resign the players, and can build a squad almost from scratch.

Football isn’t just about scoring goals, though. They do need a creative midfielder and one or two strikers (maybe a young Australian backup and a foreign starting striker), and with that, they may be able to contend. The problem then becomes resigning the contracts of the players they want to keep.

In my opinion, Donachie has been consistently good in a below-average Melbourne Victory side, which is hard to do. He definitely isn’t one of the league’s top centre-backs, but his consistency should be valued heading into next season.

Kevin Muscat seems happy in his job in Belgium, although to be honest, I’m not completely sure what he was doing as there seemed to be a few visa issues with his move. I also don’t think that Victory’s board would go after Kevin Muscat again, as it would outline their decision to let him go as poor.

While I agree that part of Melbourne Victory’s revival will be whether SFC, City, Glory etc fall back, they need to be a challenger for the finals positions, and they will have to get there themselves.

I think your observations of Marco Rojas are unfair; he’s only played in five games for Melbourne Victory. I also didn’t give Kamsoba too much ‘love’, I simply stated that he could play on both wings and in the playmaking position if needed.

In my opinion, next season will be crucial for recruitment for Melbourne Victory, as they have only really had one poor season of foreign signings. We’ll have to see what next season brings…

It seems to be getting closer…

Interesting interview, Doran, with some great questions asked. I listened to him talking with Adam Peacock on the fox football podcast, and he seemed to be very strong about his opinions, saying that player agents were the worst thing in Australian football, if I remember correctly. How was he when you interviewed him?

Bruce Djite: "The immediate future of Australian football is precarious"

Thanks, Bendtner.

Gianni Stensness on the Under 20 World Cup and Ronaldinho

I don’t know, sometimes it’s hard to predict how good a player can be. While Ufuk Talay did bring over Cameron devlin, he was their third choice centre mid until Alex Rufer got injured.

Cameron Devlin on Ufuk Talay and playing for Australia

He seems like a great guy and seems to be mentally strong. He is exactly what the Mariners need in their rebuild.

Gianni Stensness on the Under 20 World Cup and Ronaldinho

He was never in the starting lineup for Sydney, as far as I can recall.

Cameron Devlin on Ufuk Talay and playing for Australia

He was wonderful to speak to and was very open.

Thanks, Doran. I agree about Stensness, I feel like he consistently slips under the radar in terms of his consistent performances; he is an extremely valuable player for a club who is looking for stability.

The main reason Australian A-League clubs don’t often field New Zealand players is that they count as imports. Central Coast Mariners currently have two of their import spots taken up by Michael McGlinchey and Gianni Stensness.
