    He needs to be given a chance.

    We really don't have any up and coming CBs playing regularly besides him. Shane Lowry at Millwall probably deserves a call-up but I'm not sold on him.

    I have a sick feeling Holger is going to stick with Spiranovic in the foreseeable future. Not good enough.

    Spiranovic has talent. He's worth persisting with. I like DeVere too. I'd like to see both brought through the side. We lack mobility in defence currently.

    This is not confirmed yet, but it seems like we are most likely calling up only Domestic players. That means that players like Park Chu-Young, Ki Sung-Yong, Lee Chung-Yong, Son Heung-Min and other Euro-based Korean players wont be called up for this friendly.

    I assume Australia are calling up mainly domestic players and those in Asia as well....maybe?

    Thoughts on the squad? Happy? Annoyed? Indifferent?

    It'll keep some of the haters quiet, as long as he actually gives them game time. I'm excited to see what the young uns can do on a different stage. ;)

    Thats a big 'if' given the names in the rest of the squad. Do you think they are the right selections from a team development persective? Or do you think they are aimed at placating the naysayers?

    I'm guessing he at least wants to get them into a training camp to see what they can do in person. I'm sure he's going to start with most of the tried & tested ie The Schwarz and Valeri etc, and then put in maybe 2 or 3 youngsters in the second half. I'd like him to prove me wrong, but I doubt it. ;)

    Matt McKay injured his cheekbones and is out for the rest of the season (but there is only five matches remaining...). He is flying back to Australia today for early holiday.

    Its a pity because he could have played against his club teammates Kim Chang-Soo or Park Jong-Woo today.

    Not confident of getting a result. Just want to see inspired performances from Leckie, Babalj, Rogic, Oar, Ruka and McGowan.

    It's going to be weird not seeing Jedinak.

    Holy moly that's one very interesting back four. We could get pumped tonight...

    You'd have to think that's:

    Cornflakes---McGowan---Neill---Twat

    Either way, so glad to see Holger Verbeek giving exciting young prospects Mark Schwarzer, Lucas Neill, Archie Thompson and Carl Valeri some gametime. Especially generous given the sprightly Neill is suspended for the next qualifying match.

    His logic is probably to keep some experience out in defence and midfield rather than go all out. Spira isn't a leader and Og seems to be finished so meh. Not sure about Brosque...

    I was wrong, McGowan at RB. Blech.

    Is DeVere injured? You'd think this would be a good chance to try him out if not.

    That is one truly uninspired starting 11. Considering some of the young guys who are now getting some decent playing time in the Netherlands and Germany you would think we could have wrangled something a little more impressive than that. Something with an eye on the development of the team leading up to the next WC and beyond. Great to see Oar with a start and Ruka, Holland and McGowan are positive selections. That back 4 is a worry. Brosque is a journeyman. Would have preferred Rogic tbh.
