one europe

Craig Foster had a piece about oz players going to Asia instead of Europe …

but there isn’t a Monolithic entity called “Europe” which has 1 level of quality, and a corresponding “Asia” which has a lower level of quality.  Ryan McGowan was playing in Scotland for a mid level team.  And he’s gone to China.  Is that really such a step down?  Ben Holland plays in Austria.  Curtis Good plays in the English 4th tier.  Is that better than playing in China / Korea?  Mustafa Amini might get a crack at the Bundesliga 1 one day, but right now he is playing in the 4th level (or 3rd, i forget).

About the only guy who has made the Asia over Europe choice is Spiranovic.

If anything, we should be glad that Asia has opened more doors for Australian players.  More opportunities, more players to choose from.
