Odd move? Relegated from Serie B last season and club in financial difficulty according to wiki. Aren't they one of the clubs Morris pagniello farms non euro kids to?

Seems Jesse has his brother Harry staying after it didn't work out at Central coast Mariners - maybe he'll try out at Vicenza too.

Have been looking for info on Vicenza Calcio and they have an interesting history, mostly in Serie A and Serie B:

Vicenza are a larger Italian club fallen on hard times comparable to say some of the top-flight English clubs who've been down the divisions in the last dozen years like Sunderland, Man City, Southampton, Leeds, Wolves.

Played in Serie A most seasons 1955 - 1980's, yo-yoed in 1980's due to match-fixing scandels etc., in Serie A 1995- 99 & 2000- 2001

2001 - 2013: 12 consecutive seasons in Serie B

Matches in Serie A : 986 (30 seasons)    

Won the Italian Cup 1997 & made the UEFA Cup-Winners' Cup semi against Chelsea 1998

Thrashed the Dutch Eredivisie team Roda our Ivan Vicelich played for a few years later 5-0 at home in that competition.

Have boasted major players in the past like Roberto Baggio, Paolo Rossi, Luca Toni, Francesco Coco, Benito Carbone, Paul Okon, Mohamed Kallon, Joachim Bjorkland...

Lots of youth talent even in recent years: they've had nine Italian u-21 internationals play for Italy u-21 while at Vicenza the last decade:

Their stadium has a capacity of 21,000 (but only "officially" 12,300 seated - in successful seasons they cram many more in standing).

"Since 2006 the club has a modern Technical Center, located at Isola Vicentina. The property is spread over an area of 65,000 m² and is divided into two symmetrical units, one dedicated to the first team with locker rooms, warehouse, medical rooms, a gym and outbuildings executive offices, meeting rooms and a conference room, and one dedicated to the youth team with the same services, in addition to a large gym. Outside the surface is structured in 5 training pitches, of which 4 grass and a further one in clay."

Jesse, like another Kiwi playing for a club in the same division, Liam Graham, will be full time & won't have to have another job, despite Vicenza's well-known financial problems....

In Italy, supporters of Hellas Verona refer to supporters of, their rivals, Vicenza as "Mangi Gatti", (cat eaters) in reference to some otherwise long forgotten 16th Century siege.

I remember at a Vicenza - H. Verona match a while back, the visiting Verona fans brought Whiskas banners.

Declan's stocks just rose that much higher.

Always thought he looked decent at DM previously and has by all accounts looked solid as a CB.

Still a while off an All White call up probably, given its a third division team, still great to see.

Declan must be laughing so hard right now. Continually challenged and mocked he clearly has the best success record out of any coaches mentoring youth currently.

"Next year he should line up for New Zealand at the Under-20 World Cup alongside childhood friends, All Whites Ryan Thomas and Tyler Boyd. It surely will not be long before all three are lining up for the All Whites, just as they planned as bright-eyed 12-year-olds in rep teams."

Am I correct in thinking that Ryan Thomas and Tyler Boyd are both too old for this..?
