    it's almost like all this ridiculous hype over a very young player might have created a scenario where he was doomed to fail

    I've seen many things about his ego and attitude being an issue.

    Ffs.
    Bloke should be able to sue fox for Famation (Opposite of defamation?) and misinformation.
    Barely starts for Victory. And touted as our next Messi.
    He’s still young. But bloody hell, he should’ve stayed in the a league and tried to “boss it”. I’d be pressed to find a player who successfully club hops for their own benefit and development.
    His agent owes a lot to fox though.

    Arzani has played a total of 1911 mins of club football in his entire career, 65% of that was in the A League in his first 2 seasons. So he's played 660 mins of football in 3 seasons, most of which is in youth comps. At no point has he ever made an impact on a team to warrant them either resigning him or asking to keep him for another season (he was already signed to a 2 year deal at Celtic before he unfortunately got injured). There has never been a better example of over-hyped than this kid.

    But it's still shocks me to think that he had less minutes of professional football than Johnny K did when he went to the world cup. Johnny was the more accomplished player and more talented but was nowhere near the quality required of the World Cup, neither was Arzani. How anyone thought he was ready to move on the from the league, let alone make a meaningful impact at the world cup, will baffle me until the end of my days. Advertisers picking the squad seems like the most likely answer, especially given a mostly-retired Cahill making the team as well.
