LOL. This comes the week after the FFA appoint GVE the AIS coach.
Surely they only need to be 2 times better for it to be worth it? I'd also like to think the FFA is in 10 times a better financial position then what they were when Frank was in charge.
Alot of Australian coaches have been spending time with Pim and the socceroos (I know Vidmar has), they seem to be spending a shitload on sending young coaches overseas as well (I think Okon and someone else went to AZ Alkmaar and somewhere in Italy at one stage).
As for comparable wages for Aussies I doubt it. Aussie coaches aren't in demand, its here or no where for them (maybe SE Asia). On the other hand Im sure the dutchies that we've brought in could easily land jobs throughout Asia for more money (considering most have spent time as coaches in Japan and the mid-east).
He has a bit of a conflict of interest here. Seems alot like sour grapes to me. I'm sure the FFA will appoint Aussie coaches when they are up to standard - Van Egmonds appointment suggests as much. Fact is you have to pay to get quality coaches - and quality coaches are one of the most important parts of rebuilding the game. If you go for a professional job in any line of work you get paid in accordance with your experience and capabilities. Why should professional football be any different?? If Farina thinks so he is being naive.
You can argue against the wages the Dutch coaches are getting but you can never argue about their pedigree. Farina should consider himself lucky that he was even allowed to coach australia for as long as he did if at all. He had no coaching experience and got the job purely because of his career in europe. He got peanuts in pay and rightfully so.
As Les Murray put it, it's much better than having the English Mafia ruining our game. Dutch or not, if you want pedigree and you want to learn football, you learn from the best. Self-reliance is good, it shows charisma, desire and will, but when your own footballing history isn't up to standard, there's no shame in getting assistance from world clarsh.
He's still reminiscencing the SA days.
So what does Frank say now?
FFA In Non-Dutch Coaching Selection Shock!
You should be a tabloid writer, Z². Imagine the headline:
'Oranjes Out At Half-Time For FFA'
I think that's a bit rude. He got some decent results. But the fact remains the Dutch got Australia to a world cup, and he didn't.
If anyone here watched the performance of the Young Socceroos (U/20's) at the World Youth Cup last night against the Czechs, then i think you'd have to agree with Farina..............and with the odd Dutchman quietly slithering away after past failed campaigns, i am more doubting that this so called "superior Dutch system" is the way to go.
Last night the Yougn Socceroos were beaten 2-1 by the Czechs (we have never lost an opening game in a Youth WC in our history) but it's not the loss so much that was bad, it is the way we played. It was absolutely pathetic.
This squad has been together under Jersalink (sp???) for 2 years in preparation for this tournament and it took us a quarter of the game before we were able to string more than 3 passes together, we never really looked like scoring and when we got into a decent position to have a crack someone would totally miss his man with the pass. All the while this is going on and the dumbass coach sits there and says nothing. Not once during the whole game did our "Expert Dutch Coach" get up from his seat and yell an instruction.
We may have some superior dutch system in place but these guys have no concept of out it works or how to even run into space, pass accurately, hold possession. How much time does he want to get these players ready?
i was very underwhelmed. we didn't even see a "dutch system" there. felt more like watching the mariners play with the excessive longballs to the moon.
i also question a lot of the selections....where the ******** was mooy for one!?
lets see if jan can prove himself in the next game
