Houllier to coach Socceroos?

With the recent resignation of Gerard Houllier from his post as manager of all conquering Lyon it again raises the possibility and rumours of him taking charge of the Socceroos for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. He comes well qualified for the position as being in charge of the French football system which resulted in 1998 World Cup win for France. I believe it would be a worthwhile investment to have Houllier as the man in charge of Australia to be working in conjunction with Rob Baan to fully develop the system of football development within this country - two men with immense of two of the greatest football systems in the world working together would be fantastic for the game in this country.

Even though Graham Arnold is doing a good job in charge of the national team at the moment I don't believe he has the necessary experience and technical nouse at international level to take this team further especially in this time of change within the squad as a number of more experienced members are set to depart the scene in the coming months.

I am looking forward to seeing the new look Socceroos take on a near full strength Uruguay on Saturday night (if I can find somewhere to watch it as it is not on free to air - but that's a whole other matter) and the possible debut of the much hyped, Matthew Spiranovic.
