Better than the Domestics …

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 11:45 pm

How many Aussies overseas are better than the players currently turning out in the A-League? Clearly better.  Head and shoulders better than their A-league based compatriots.

The difference in quality between a FIFA date Socceroos and a non-FIFA date Socceroos is pretty stark … but I think the A-league boys aren`t as bad as many people think.  For all their faults, there are only 11 guys Overseas I would consider as “clearly” better.  Wilks, Grella, the Schwartz, Timmy, Neill, Bresc, Kennedy, McDonald, Emmo, Harry and Holman.  

A Chippers might come home and contribute to a side, but probably wouldn`t be Johnny Warren medal material.  Jedi has probably improved, but is he better than a Culina?  The guys that have come home with experience in the Scandinavian leagues – that striker at CCM (the name escapes me), Steffanuto (prior to the injury), Dave Williams … they haven`t exactly set the league on fire.
