Growing pains

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 7:26 am

Not every yoof player is gonna shine like Rogic and live happily ever after.  Saw the news that Dimi Petratos from SFC wasn’t happy, was being courted by a Malaysian team.  Maybe he doesn’t break through at SFC.  See similar problems coming up for guys like Bratten at Roar.  Time is ticking, if you aren’t playing, maybe you need to go somewhere where you will play.  Steven Lustica played well in the NYL for Gold Coast, but an A-league contract didn’t happen.  Now trying to establish himself as a starter in Croatia.  As the level of the A-league goes up, it’ll get harder to break into teams.  Guys will have some really hard choices about whether they can become an established starter in the a-league, or whether they need to go on a different journey as a pro.  I’d like to see more movement between state league and asia too – there is a guy who played state league in nsw who is now playing as a full time pro in india.  Tough choices there as a pro.
