mat_ryan

Mathew Ryan has had a superb season with Brighton & Hove Albion and played a big part in helping the 2016-17 Championship runners-up towards Premier League survival for another year. Now the Australian goalkeeper has the chance to impress potential suitors further at the World Cup this summer, and may pique the interest of bigger clubs in the division.

Ryan began his professional playing career at Central Coast Mariners from 2010 to 2013. The Australian international was gifted regular action after Mariners’ first-choice keeper Jess Vanstrattan suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, and …

Sydney On Course For Back-To-Back A-League Crowns

bobosalute

Sydney FC appear to be on course to win their second A-League crown on the bounce, boasting a comfortable lead at the top of the table heading into the closing stages of the season. The club dominated the division in the 2016/17 season, losing just one of their 27 matches. Graham Arnold’s men used their home-field advantage to great effect to ease past Perth Glory in the semi-finals.

However, they were forced to battle back from behind in the Grand Final against the Melbourne Victory. Besart Berisha put the Victory ahead, only for …

Van Marwijk Named Socceroos Boss for World Cup, A-League Coach Touted Long-Term

vanmarwijk

Australia finally have a successor to Ange Postecoglou in Bert van Marwijk, but the Dutchman is only in charge of the Socceroos until this summer’s World Cup in Russia ends.

There are some echoes of compatriot Guus Hiddink’s short-term appointment in 2005 about Football Federation Australia (FFA) making this choice. Like Hiddink before him, the Socceroos are Van Marwijk’s third different country in international management. Both took the plunge by coaching their native Netherlands after club jobs at home and abroad.

Hiddink and Van Marwijk later took on left-field international roles with other …

Frank Lampard has been linked with a move to the A-League where he could be set to join Melbourne City, the club owned by City Football Group.

Lampard has previously played for Manchester City and more recently New York City, two clubs who share the same owners at Melbourne City so a transfer to the Australian side would not be a difficult transition to make.

At the age of 38, Lampard has yet to commit on his future, however, the former England international is unlikely to be able to sign for a major club …

Can Okon revive the Mariners’ fortunes?

okonysCentral Coast Mariners appointed former Australia captain Paul Okon as their new manager this week, following a disastrous 2015/16 season.

The Mariners finished rock bottom of the A-League, accumulating just 13 points from their 27 matches, the lowest tally in the club’s history. As a result, Tony Walmsley’s tenure was ended after just one season in charge, paving the way for Okon to sign a two-year contract.

The former Socceroos skipper has a huge task ahead of him to reverse the fortunes of the team, with just five weeks before the start of the …
