A League that is signing Italian, Spanish and Argentinian nationals is not to be scoffed at.

Oh and btw, Melbourne City was bottom of the Australian A League.

That is what you call a pro league comparable to European Standards as opposed to the Goat Shagging Cyprus First Division! :lol: :lol: :lol:

36m Euros revenue from a budget of 7m Euros. Thats great football, thats great management, thats true footballing spirit. Thats a winners attitude with results, not some wallaby humpers banging on about only attacking and letting 9 goals in without scoring a single point.

Melbourne City, which came last in the last season, has an annual budget of about 50 million.

It is a franchise, owned partly by Manchester City (80%) and Melbourne Storm Rugby Club (20%). They have huge club rooms full of gambling and what not. Basically club rooms with casino.

Their turnover from tv rights, gambling, gate, merchandise, etc etc is about 80 million.

They also just signed Spanish International Striker David Villa who scored against Australia in the 36th minute. He will actually fly to Australia from Brazil.

Players are being paid 40,000 a game these days!

Players actually interchange between Manchester City and Melbourne City.

This is why players like this and Italy's Alesandro Del Piero play in the A League these days.

While Apoel average about 7000 at the gate, some A League clubs average 28,000 per game.

The biggest soccer stadium fits 87,000 fans. Melbourne City's home ground is a 55,000 seater stadium, built in 2012. There are full houses too.

Oh yeh, and for a business to get their name on an A League Teams shirt as major Sponsor, costs 2 million and something like a million for the back, and 500,000 for the collar etc.

Australian Football is certainly not what you think it is.

Apoel's major sponsor, MTN, only pay 100,000 to have their name on the shirt.

So you can understand, there is a major difference between Australian A League teams and Apoel.

Yes we have actually won 3 games in the World Cup, and drawn 3.

DT, this team is not the team Australia qualified with. The so called big stars were demoted along with coach Fiddink.

This team has only played 4 friendlies before the World Cup. They opted for bloodying the youth or future generation of players - Oar, Leckie, Bozanic, Wilkinson, McKay et all are barely out of puberty.
