Do not disagree, these 5 players for a various of problems including injuries, never quite reached their potential.

Paul Okon Jr following in famous father’s footsteps

But this is the media saying all this trying to pump up our national pride to pretend we are the US in the Olympics.
I don’t see it that way, I see it as competition at a level that we don’t get much to allow us the gain experience to than move onto the bigger World championships or Olympics.
Imagine getting to play England in football every 4 years that would be good.

Ernie’s at the wheel - but not as the 'distruptor'

Chris & SS, I remember Okon, Soccerooos against Ghana, I think a the SFS, he just bossed the game around as if was his own personnel game & allowing a few others to join in.
Shame never quite reached the pinnacle, unfortunately same could be said of Zelic, Kewell, Dukes & Bozza. Really only Cahill reached his full potential.

So one minute you want it included, but at the same time you are saying it’s an embarrassment!!! I don’t understand.
Who looks at the medal tally at Comm games anyway, apart from yeah we beat the English.
Other sports, just like football uses the Comm games for extra competition.
I’m a swimming and Athletics fan too, when I see us winning gold medals in Comm games, I don’t think, wow best in the world, I see great experience & development for Olympics.

Please explain!!!!

We complain in this country about the lack of competition we have for our athletes?
We complain too much focus on backyard sports that are huge in this part of the world.

Now we complain about the Comm games?

Interesting article as usual SS. Paul Okon was one special player, very unlike Aussie player, he had poise & time.

Attitude, many different words can be used that are similar.

Attitude is the reason why Kewell was the most talented Socceroos, but Cahill was the greatest Socceroo.

James Troisi will try to unite in the west

James always reminded me of a cricketing term ‘flat track bully’.

Yes he had the skills, he had the tools, but rarely at the highest level showed it.

James Troisi will try to unite in the west

Yet for 32 years we never made the WC.

Now we making every WC.

I pine for those days when we missed the WC & made the age WCs.

The class system within Australian football's youth development needs a thorough review

See I don’t see our game as being in a predicament, the A-League yes, but not the sport of football in Australia.

It's exhausting being a football fan in 2022

Not to mention Tonga, a country with a population of 100K, a world power in RL.

I love Australia doing well on the world stage & will watch anytime they do.
This is why the 3 mins of watching the netball (not a huge fan) final at the Comm games is 3 mins more than I ever watch the backyard sport like AFL.

I’ll be cheering the Socceroos.

Qatar 2022 - are you on board?

Well considering you had them missing the WC, they have gone further than your expectations.
To most countries just making the WC is the achievement!!!! This is by far the biggest sporting event in the world & for a country where football is no 4 sport, it’s a great achievement!!!!

Enjoy!!!!

When it comes to money, we close our eyes, it’s just in sport, they are easy to pick on, but when it comes to big corps & governments that is different.

How should football protest Qatar 2022?

And go to eat at places like McDonalds & KFC.
Hypocrites.

I just watched the England v Spain game in the Women’s Euros.
Their is no way in the last 5-10 years of watching the Matildas, there is no way Australia has ever played to that standard of passing & moving, no matter who was the coach.
That was one amazing game of Women’s football, probably the best standard I have ever watched.

The Filipinas love coach Alen Stajcic, so why didn’t Football Australia?

Gotta to love Sam Kerr!!!!

Thanks TSS love these articles.

Unpacking the NPL's latest international success story

Exactly, gone are the days where the USA & lesser extent Japan & Australia had professional or at least semi professional, women’s football is growing & fast.

What does that mean?

The only way to beat the Eurosnobs is by supporting the A-Leagues

OOPs yes.

Australia in the running to host another Asian Cup

Thanks Chris, didn’t think I said USA, Norway & Australia days are over.
Some like to read to suit their agenda.
