Happy thoughts … Bresc’s moment in the sun

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 9:48 pm

Mark Bresciano needs noone’s pity.  A) he has been a professional footballer, B) played for his country, C) at a world cup. 

But the younger, more mobile Bresc got pushed out to the wide forward, wide mid type role – for his country.  Which, with the package of skills that he has, is a shame.  Moving to offer a pass option.  Passing and moving again to offer a pass option.  Passing forward.  Joining the attackers after playing it forward.  Did I mention passing it forward? 

Now he has the opportunity to play in the centre for his country.  Why did it take so long?

Because we have spent so long worrying about being overrun.  Because we have spent more time thinking about how to stop the opposition from playing, than thinking about how we want to play. 

I still feel a lack of confidence in the national team choices.  The recent use of centrebacks as fullbacks.  McKay, Cahill and Carle not having opportunities through the centre of the park. 

But having Bresc in the middle.  That is something.
