Brett Emerton? FFA to dud Canberra......AGAIN?

Local Aussie journos are wetting themselves over the upcoming Melbourne Victory v Sydney FC clash and are starting to twitter themselves into a frenzy.

They want Brett Emerton and Harry Kewell to play for their respective clubs rather than for Australia, in Canberra, against Malaysia.

Of course the Malaysia game is a walk in the park and a friendly at that - but it is four days before the World Cup clash with Oman.

Harry wouldn't be selected for Australia - in my view - Emerton is a cert; given the players' levels of match fitness come October.

So let Holger pick his best available squad - Harry will fill the stadium in Melbourne on his own.

Sure it weakens Sydney FC if Emmo doesn't show, but so what!

The Melbourne Sydney clash should sell itself. Has done in the past. Will do in the future. An Emerton v Kewell clash would be nice, but the national team is well.....the national team.

Last time the FFA sent Canberra a dud team for the game against Kuwait - surely we won't be robbed again.
