Yes, yes, of course.

The production line of superstars who eventually go on to become legendary district AA12 players remains strong.

This thread is living proof that the step up from EPL to Rydalmere is doable, under the guidance of the right coaching akadumy.

Bless all sockah shysters, spivs, dopes, deadbeats, and this wonderful thread.

All other posts apart from mine are pissers.

Aussiesrus - 20 Nov 2011 9:19 AM
Been very quiet here so I thought I would update the latest news from ASA. As posted before ASA not only tours Asia but also organises trials for top ASA students in the UK which is organised by our UK football guru Jim Petruzzi.


It would appear that UK football guru eventually concluded that there was no money in EPL sockah and has since rebranded himself as a rock star.

From this



To this



WhereTF are you, Aussiesrus? :)

Have been overseas a few times for football trials and training.
Have also seen that the number of boys going over to Europe off their own bat.

As far as I can see if its something you want to do the first consideration is to trial at Clubs that are achievable.

In 2016 we went to Raith Rovers one boy from South Melbourne got signed up and another boy from Heidelberg United was keenly sort by Raith, St Mirren and St Johnstone.
But they also had advantages, their parents and Grand parents were from the Perth region of Scotland so they had family support. They both had British Passports (though both were born in the UK). The boys played in full and official U20 Development League matches (As did some others) as trialists (Playing as a "trailist" is a great advantage in the UK allowing players to participate in official matches to ascertain their competitiveness).
Scotland is a great destination for Australians firstly its achievable, both these boys play U20 NPL and both have not been in the official FFV and FFA pathways.
Scotland is a mature Football Market with four Divisions comprising 42 Clubs mostly full time Professional with a small playing pool.
Scotland is an easier environment for Australian Footballers to adapt to culturally linguistically and legally.
Scotland is a "SCOUTED" market especially by English Clubs from EPL to Conference League.

Having been to Greece and Cyprus for many its a similar scenario if you're of Greek heritage.
Having also been to France this is an environment that would be very hard to break into.

I don't know how this will work based on FIFA transfer regulations for minors unless the family moves over.

In the end if your an Aussie kid who wants to be a professional you need to get overseas, if not to play then to experience at least.
You have more chance playing professionally in Scotland that in Australia.

^ not sure how any of the above supposedly justifies the previous 14 pages of unadulterated (and now proven) bollox perpetuated by the spivs and dills but anyhow.....

I don't doubt for a second that the lower tiers of Scottish football could be seen as a fertile ground for insufficiently-talented aussie kids and their unrealistic parents to continue with their pro-footy fantasies.  

As for life experiences for sockah numpties. Fuck me dead up the arse, why would any sockah numpty want their sockah numpty kiddy to be holed up in a god forsaken shit-hole chasing peanuts at the direct expense of a post-school aussie education.

Just a short cameo, Arfur. Please do not mistake 'grumpiness' for realism. FWIW I don't think I could sleep at night if I gave false hope to strayan sockah yoof  at the direct expense of their financial future. Jobless and directionless at 30, due to very poor advice from two bob gumby daddies  who really should know better. I get pissed off all these useless know nothing  mummy and daddy knob jockeys in strayan sockah know SFA compared to me.

Dickhead he may be, but at least Chips can spot a fraud unlike 95% of the numpties here.

It's a shame there are so many without his ability to talk big.

It's a shame people allow frauds to flourish.

In a football sense Scotland seems better than the US college system for Australian players to grasp professional opportunities.

As for multis add 'mango' to that list as well as 'footballking55'.  (As well as countless others.) The man has no shame.

Possibly.

But being enamoured to the point of posting about the abilities of your own kid is a stretch too far.

Fingers crossed he doesn't let your ego down.
