I think its great for Australian football that they have taken out the ethnic backgrounds from the soccer clubs...now when Sydney wins the whole city can be proud of the team, not just an ethnic background of that city how it was before.

David Zdrilic has vowed to help new Sydney FC manager Pierre Littbarski transform Aussie Stadium into a football arena that rivals the intimidating European venue where he enjoyed the best night of his career.

The Sydney striker succeeded where stars such as Michael Owen, Alessandro Del Piero and Ronaldinho failed by scoring the winning goal at Celtic Park - home of Scottish champion Celtic - that ended a 77-game, 33-month unbeaten run in Glasgow last April.

Juventus, Porto, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona were just some of the sides who failed to win at the 60,000-capacity ground before Zdrilic's late goal inspired Scottish premier league strugglers Aberdeen to a 2-1 win.

That moment remains the 30-year-old's career highlight but he believes there is sufficient football interest in Sydney to rival the renowned Celtic Park atmosphere.

"It is great to be playing at a great stadium in Sydney," said Zdrilic after his third day of pre-season training under 1990 German World Cup winner Littbarski.

"Just like at Celtic Park, I want to be playing in front of a full house here.

"To be on that kind of stage (Celtic Park) was awe-inspiring and scoring the winner was a dream in itself. It makes you appreciate why you play football.

"They had gone so long unbeaten and teams like Barcelona, Bayern and Juventus had all been there and hadn't won and then Aberdeen come and do it.

"It was the best single game that I can remember playing in before 60,000 people and nobody expecting us to win. It was very special and one I'll never forget.

"That stadium at Celtic Park is amazing just because of the atmosphere but the potential is there in Sydney and all my efforts are on creating that kind of atmosphere here.

"We've got a lot to work for but it's a great challenge and is very exciting with an excellent new coach. Our aim is to pack this stadium out," commented Zdrilic of an Aussie Stadium that is normally near its 42,500 capacity for rugby union games involving the NSW Waratahs.

Without a sustainable league, Australia's football lovers are used to seeing their best talent depart for the money and glory of Europe.

But Sydneysider Zdrilic, who himself left Sydney United for Swiss club Aarau in 1997, can see a time when Australia's big name players such as Mark Viduka and Harry Kewell return home to finish their careers in the A-League.

"I think a lot of the guys are watching closely to see how this A-League goes," said Zdrilic.

"I think if it does work out then you will see a lot of Aussies wanting to come back because it is very difficult overseas and a long way from home.

"It was amazing back then to go overseas and a lot of guys have aspirations to go to Europe, but I think a good league will ensure they will want to stay in Australia.

"I would've stayed a lot longer overseas if the new league wasn't starting up, I must admit.

The well-travelled Zdrilic longs to add to his haul of 29 caps and 19 goals for Australia.

He believes Littbarski can help fire him into contention for a slot in the World Cup finals play-offs later this year and would welcome playing alongside marquee signing-target Dwight Yorke.

"Pierre has been great from the first minute and I'm used to his style of coaching from my time in Germany," said Zdrilic, who numbers German sides Ulm, Unterhaching and Eintracht among the eight clubs he has represented.

David Zdrilic > his former club is SV Eintracht Trier 05, played just 11 matches before he left to Sydney. He´s a very experienced player though, as he played in the German 1.Bundesliga (38 games, 7 goals) and in the Scottish Premier League (Aberdeen). I´ve seen him play a few years ago. He seems like a very useful player to me.

Sydney FC has announced the signing of former Everton youth player David Carney from Scottish side Hamilton Academicals.

The former U20 Australian midfielder becomes Hyundai A-League club Sydney FC's 17th player, and returns to Australia after five seasons in the UK.

"David impressed me during his trial and we have decided to offer him a contract," the club's head coach Pierre Littbarski said.

"He is our 17th player and we will be filling the last two places before the deadline on Tuesday. I think it is important to have the squad finalised as soon as possible as I stated when I arrived in the job."

The club also says it will 'continue its pursuit of former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke.'

Sydney FC have signed former Northern Ireland U21 captain Terry McFlynn, just three days before the transfer deadline on Tuesday, making him their 18th signing.

McFlynn put pen to paper yesterday after impressing coach Pierre Littbarski during a two-week trial.

The 23-year-old midfielder is the 18th player to join Sydney FC, with the ambitious Hyundai A-League club set to confirm one more signing before Tuesday and then the addition of a marque player to fill the squad.

“Terry did well in the Trials,” said Sydney FC coach Pierre Littbarski. “He needs some work on fitness but he has showed us that he will be a good player. We now have 18 players and we will be signing the next one up before the deadline (March 15).

“That will leave us with one place and that will be for the marque player.”

McFlynn spent eight years playing professional football in England, most notably a four year stint with Queens Park Rangers, after trialling with Manchester United as a teenager.

He joins Sydney FC after playing last season with Morecambe in the English Nationwide Conference league, where he scored 13 goals in 44 appearances.

The former Northern Ireland captain has moved to Sydney with his Australian wife and will settle Down Under after securing a deal with the club.

McFlynn enjoyed a decorated junior career in international football with Northern Ireland, representing at U15, U16, U18, U21 and U23 level, captaining his country at all levels.

TERRY McFLYNN

International Career

U15 - 14 Caps
U16 - 23 Caps (2 as captain)
U18 - 18 Caps (4 as captain)
U21 - 22 Caps (5 as captain)

Club Career

Sydney FC today signed Matt Bingley. Bingley was a part of the Glory championship winning squad last season. Just the marquee player to go now, still in negotitations with Yorke.

nonsense, i just want to keep Newcastle on the front page in the prominent position we deserve, my pride doesn't extend far enough to keep it on the top of the heap though

there just isn't enough to say about this town , but leave our rusty old seaplanes out of it , when the New Zealanders come to make Sydney their capital, you'll be pleased to know that Williamtown RAAF base can come to your rescue
