Perennial Arsenal sufferer that masquerades as a football journalist to help hide the pain. Lots of deep dives into tactical analysis and break down the statistics to find the things that naked eye might be missing. Have a read and leave a comment if you're interested or have any questions!

Think it was meant to be just wrinkles!

A three-goal win, but Graham Arnold has some wrinkles to sort out for the Socceroos

Agree with much of what you’ve said. It’s hard to know for certain how the Socceroos will stack up against more competitive teams because we took a comfortable lead so early in the match that there was no need to push into another gear. The part I’m not so sure about is Leckie moving centrally. I think we need some consistency and I would like to see Taggart given at least a year to bed himself into the Socceroos squad before we decide to change again.

Thanks for reading! I’m not sure if Irvine is moving under instructions by Arnold or if that’s just his natural inclination. If it’s natural, then it would be best to bring in Mabil. If it’s because Arnold wants to create a numerical advantage on the left, then yeah, I’d say moving Irvine a bit more centrally would be best. But still, I think Mabil is our best player and he should be one of the first names on our teamsheet.

Eoin Morgan! My mistake, wrote this in the early hours following the match *facepalm*

It's coming home: England are the team to beat at the Cricket World Cup

Might be jumping the guns a little bit but that most people think that England underperformed with the bat shows just how strong they are. But of course, at home, this is the their tournament to lose and there is a chance that pressure overpowers them in the latter stages.

Apparently they had put on their own version of “Cricket’s coming home” on the PA at the ground, so they’re definitely not wasting any time getting into it. Completely agree that over confidence is never a good thing, which is why I think fighting against complacency will be their greatest battle.

Completely agree with you Mike. My one concern is that owners will still not be eager to invest much money and that their salary budget will largely stay the same.

The A-League's salary cap has outlived its usefulness
