I wonder if Ante Milicic is going to stay on past the 2018 AFC U19 Championship. I suppose he probably would if they qualify for the U20 2019 World Cup. If they fail and he stays on that's just career treading water.

The dutch bloke is Rene Meulensteen. Doesn't pick his mates well if Arnie is one of them.

I was gonna find another thread for this, but what they hey, may as well put it here:

https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/former-socceroos-coach-ange-postecoglou-under-pressure-in-japanese-gig/news-story/94e130822bb3a31cac25c32389f1ad2e

“Postecoglou’s attacking-minded style has been a feature, with Yokohama boasting the second most league goals (36) across 22 games this season.

But there’s little for the Marinos to gloat about at the other end, conceding 40 goals as the competition’s leakiest defence.”

There is an international window in about 3 weeks and another in early October. Do we have any games??

They just announced this but it's in the November break, so no Socceroos games in the September or October breaks.

Edit: it actually says first game on Australian soil, so I guess we could play away.

Jackson Irvine geez.  I hope he can bag some goals for the NT too Wendy but if we're relying on him we're in trouble. The guy has good energy and brings some spark to a team when he comes on, but that's it. He's not international standard.

When you look around at the teams at major tournaments that bring players like him from the Championship level, they're always the ones that don't get our of their groups or when they do it's a shock. Even our 06 team was full of guys playing at the top level. We're never gonna get back to repeating their feat if Jackson Irvine is our hope.

Apparently we are having a training camp in Turkey and then a game in the Middle East against an as yet unspecified opponent.

We'll have at least 8 players selected (+2 on standby) for the u19's Young Socceroos camp, when the squad is announced this week.

Well it appears wherever I read this had it wrong, no games in the next window.

According to The World Game there is only one a-league player selected - Petratos.  Great journalism - Risdon is selected as well.

Denis Genreau was the Heartle$$ NYL captain last season.

john iredale I think was in the Smurfs NYL/NPL set up.

kenny dougall was playing at Sparta Rotterdam with Craig Goodwin. He was cut from the Brisbane Roar NYL team and went to the Netherlands.

Ajdin Hrustic was selected for Socceroos by Postecoglou. He plays at Groningen

Good to see he is not afraid to bring in new, young guys.

For all of Ange's talk of building a squad, for some strange reason he seemed to stick with a few dudes who he trusted and we never heard of many of these other guys, particularly young guys who were playing in lower leagues, reserves teams etc overseas. Some players have claimed they weren't even scouted.

Say one thing about Arnie - he's got a pretty good network. He recruited well to the smurfs, and he also seems to know the young up and coming Aussies regardless of where they are in the world.

Well yes and no. Postecoglu did choose a certain Massimo Luongo and James Meredith from league one, Ikonomidis was in Lazio reserves and chose other randoms as well in his first two years. The last two years he settled on his own team which is why no new faces came around, Arnold is doing the same.

But should he have settled? The national team should always be moving forward. Especially given what Ange was sprouting. You can't go talking about being forward-thinking if you are afraid to find new talent.
