Bratten should go

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 7:35 pm

I thought Bratten had shown enough last season to earn time …

tidy on the ball, fast, accurate passes, looks to hide his passes …
we really don’t have many players like that doing the rounds.

But he is on the periphery again.  The a-league has kept improving, and there are younger players in the league earning significant playing time, and developing through it.

The idea that someone is still a young one at 22 or 23 and it is ok to be sitting on the bench … times have changed.  This idea that Aussies take longer to mature as players, ala Cahill and Neil … while they are “maturing”, teens from other countries are winning first team spots in europe.  winning them, and keeping them.  so when our guys are “ready” they are competing with established first teamers, who have more experience in their league, and are the same age or younger than them.  Which guy is a coach going to choose?

Europe calls young man!
