Australia's O'Neill signals interest in British clubs.

I don't get this. The Australian Soccer Association is talking about buying into European clubs because "If we had groups of our players at these clubs, it would help with the club versus country issue.

How exactly?? Are these clubs, with three or more Australians in their starting side, going to be happy to lose them all for an international match? It was hard enough to get Kewell and Viduka from Leeds for internationals because they were arguably two of the best players on the team. Why would any club be happy to lose 1/3 to 1/2 of their starting side?

I think it's a good idea overall, to buy into a club, but it would be unbelievably stupid to try and stack the team with Aussie players because we'd be even less likely to get them for internationals.
