Considering I am very much a football dilettante, it's difficult for me to say how I feel. Loosely following Tottenham - much to the derision of my soon-to-be former boss (he supports Arsenal) - my interest solely revolves around the EPL. The A-League is a reserve grade competition in my opinion. My surprise at Bert X's truncated appointment stems from the fact: a. it's only for the World Cup and b. the FFA must've outlaid a fair amount of renumeration to get him. As for the Socceroos' expectations, I haven't the foggiest but (as with most Australians) I wish them great success.
