It was all about overseas based Australian footballers . Top show & gives an insight in to what a youngster @ times 15/16 goes thorugh when shifting half the way round world to puch for a dream. Language barriers, culture etc.


Inc's time & chat's with the players Tim Cahill, Lucas Neil, Mark Bresciano, John Aloisi, Zelko Kalac, Vinnie Grella, Joe Skoko & others. ( Skoko Tells a great tale of his time in Turkey & the actual sacrifcing then burial of a Goat on the ptich & how it blew his mind)


Anyhow's on to the jist they have a good natter ( Narrated by Anthony laPaglia) wif are Top Cat Timmy & he gives some real insight in to his own story...1st contract 250 quid a week, Parents hockin house to get him over etc etc.


Also gives a great insight & clue, as 2 where are lad get's his drive. His family is Massive & in every sense of the word.


Timmy tells with love how his stout Samoan mother would beat the shit out of him with a sandal.....as Just the way we were..& that while he isnt that small he is the runt due to..well he said youll see...LOL...When you meet my family.
