    First Friendly of this cycle tonight. Lots of new faces with a number of our main players having the season break off from international duties. I don't really care about the result at this stage, but am interested in seeing how they go.

    I hope we don't get totally destroyed, but am not at all confident and still think Arnold is not up to the job.

    I suppose some guys got some experience and will be better for it. I still can't see signs of us finding a solution for our biggest problem.

    Arnold is doing a good job with the cattle he has, I thought we played well last night. As Almango referred to above, our main issue is getting the sausage rolls, and that's where we have to improve.

    What i noticed in the last friendly was that the team was quite old, it needs some fresh energy.
    Some youngsters should make the step up: McGree, Blackwood, maybe Brandon Wilson and Atkinson. Also bringing back some players who tried the Socceroos jersey for too short time like Susnjar, Hrustic would improve the quality.

    Something like that would be the ideal formation now:

    ------------------Maclaren---------------

    Goodwin---------Rogic--------Leckie

    -------------McGree-----Irvine-------------

    Elder-----Susnjar----Spiranovic---Atkinson

    ---------------------Ryan-------------------

    It is a mix between experienced and young players, with Leckie to lead the team as captain.

    I'm happy with this as a warm up. I think UAE will be a tough match for us. I'm hoping that most of our players are available this time
