Joe Gorman on David Hill's attempted shoving of the NSL into the 'mainstream'

This article is, I think, a well researched and balanced look back at the mid 1990s attempt at de-ethnicising Australian soccer. A bit Sydney centric, but very interesting - and good to see someone analysing the multicultural factors more thoroughly then I'm used to seeing.

  1. What a great piece, something that every football in this country should read.

    I've got to say my hate for David Hill and George Negus still burns strong. What a disgraceful period in the history of Australian football.
