Where in the world is Mario Karlovic?!
By Bernie Adam.

Just over two years ago, Mario Karlovic was shipped out overseas to play for Cittadella in Serie C/2, soon afterward he was picked up by former Italian power house club Torino who the subsequently sent him out on loan to Chiasso in the Swiss second division. After having so much promise, he seems to have disappeared entirely. It is a shame too, he is a talented midfielder with the potential to be even better that Marco Bresciano.

 Rocco Visconte, Adelaide's unsung hero.
By Bernie Adam

In 2006, a youngster by the name of Rocco Visconte was picked up by Hearts in the Scottish Premier League. The dynamic young midfielder has since caused nothing short of havoc for the opposition he faces week in week out whilst turning out for the under 19 squad along with fellow Aussies Dylan Mcgowan and Matthew Park (both will feature in this section soon). Rocco attended the same high school as yours truly, Christian Brothers College, which was famous for Rowing and Aussie rules, so when young Rocco ventured out to Europe to play football for one of Scotland's biggest teams, it was considered both a privelege and an honor to have known him for such a short time. However, his sterling efforts for Hearts have gone unnoticed, with Rocco not being called up by neither the Young Socceroos or the Olyroos. If James Troisi, who was without a club for some time can recieve a call up, then why must Rocco (who in the opinion of many is the better natural midfielder) be forced to miss out even though he is a regular at club level? Hopefully in the near future, we will all be able to see this diamond of a player plying his trade for the National Team.
