    Yeah but when you go in with a two footed tackle in your own box, most players are going to fall over you regardless of whether you touch them or not. One of the first things you learn as a defender to not go in with two footed challenges when your the last man in the line.

    The thing that might save us if he get called up to U20 before the English U21. I think the rules have changed lately where a player who play U20 or U23 etc can't play for another country without a certain amount of quailification time. Pretty sure thats the reason why Jlloyd Samuels couldn't play for T&T World Cup as he played for England U21. Cahill had to serve a 10 year period after playing for Western Somoa U21 as 14yo.

    That would make sense if he was anywhere near Grosso when he made that challenge. As it was he'd done his sliding and missed and was stationary when Grosso decided to try and get past him.

    Mario Jardel just signed for the Jets, whats the Brazilian count up to now? Fred may have only played one season, but i reckon we might look back at the A-League in 4-5 seasons time and think that he made the A-League what it is. Will be interesting to see how they all go this season. The guy from the United looks the real deal, very talented footballer. Can't defend much as left back, but awsome in attack, a bit Roberto Carlos-ese.

    I know of at least 6.. Jardel, Juninho, Reinaldo & Marcinho (i think that's his name, he's signed with the Roar anyway) and i know Wellington has signed 2 Brazilians..

    Jardel is a bit of a gamble imo, he's been in the wilderness for a few years with substance issues from what i've heard....that said, if he produces the attacking football he's capable of it could be quite a show. IIRC he's was the top goal scorer in europe back around 98-01 for 1 or 2 years.

    Leandro Love is at Melbourne as well, Adelaide has Diego and Cassio, the Jets are also supposedly planning to sign Denni http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denni_Rocha_dos_Santos

    Jardel has the ability to carve up in the A-League. Really love that we're seeing alot of overseas players, young and old in the A-League. It may just have launched Fred's career and hopefully it can do the same for many players to come.

    Les Murray brought up something the other day that i've thought about of late. How come we haven't recruited any African players to join the A-League?

    If that's it then they aren't trying hard enough.

    I know we probably have very limited knowledge of the talent in the area etc as most clubs probably don't have too many links there, but surely it's worth being the first in like Melbourne was with Sth Americans.
