Football nonsense: Miron the monkey? Clive the clown, or Ange the ...

Heard the one about the A-League club struggling for crowds and funds?

Yep at seasons end Gold Coast United bring in Shane Smeltz, Korean import Sung-Kil Kim and Bundesliga player Peter Perchtold. That's expensive, less expensive and probably expensive.

But on 2500 fans and trying to engage the community Chris Harald, Youth Team Captain Stephen Lustica and others miss out. Great strategy Miron.

And you are running at a loss by how much?

But not everyone is foolish - anymore.

Take table topping Brisbane Roar - lose Reinaldo a star striker and replace him with an 18 year old from the Youth team. And a midfielder at that.

You keep within your cost structure, you encourage every Youth team player at the club, and the guy is so fit he'll fit right in to the Roar philosophy. After all he's been training and playing all year with the Champions-elect

Miron the monkey? Clive the clown, or Ange the Aussie Coach of the Year.
