FFS no more A-League coaches, especially total boobs like Arnold. Need somebody with European experience as a minimum.

The list of coaches interested in leading Australia at next year's FIFA World Cup continues to grow with veteran English managers Harry Redknapp and Tony Pulis both throwing their hats in the ring.

AUSTRALIA’S midfield star Aaron Mooy was carried off in agony as Huddersfield beat Bournemouth in the English Premier League.

Fingers crossed Mooy is okay for the World Cup  :pray.

Troisi and Kruse lucky. Well deserved to Nabbout and Petratos.  Dimi especially, long overdue. I thought Rhys Williams might have been a bit stiff but looks like Van Marwijk is going youth instead with Sunsjar.

Not sure why Amini isn't getting a go. Gets a lot more minutes in a top flight Euro league than a few of those selected.
