Back when Peter Reid was appointed national team coach in July 2008, FAT set two objectives.
1. Qualification for World Cup 2014
2. Setup up a National Reserve Team
Well, point one is still open, can they do it? Not when they can't score.
Point two, set up a National Reserve Team. At the time I didn't understand this point as we simply didn't have a good enough first team to begin with, never mind finding another 11 players to feel a B squad.
But this was all coming off the back of Thailand destroying Nepal 7-0 if I remember corerctly. Suddenly FAT thought they were world beaters and wanted to create two strong teams.
This never got off the ground. Objective never met. FAT never stick to there guns. Can they prove me wrong and stick to the 2014 world cup qualification?
