  1. Past hour
  2. A-League Expansion

    I reckon the best we will get is an announcement of the teams but they start the season after next. Which is fine by me, more time for them the better
  3. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    Why you still on the City forum then?
  4. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    Perhaps we have to be thankful for small mercies. Had Joyce been the manager at the time, we would never have seen Bruno Fornaroli, Aaron Mooy and Harry Novillo playing together and City scoring at will. What decent player - especially from overseas - is going to want to come to City and have to put up with this bloke?

    new melbourne team possibly announced tomorrow,should be interesting ,did not renew membership this year, city destroyed my love of football, but maybe a new team can reignite it
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    OK, happy to take that correction. But, other than not being an additional marquee, and not being called the same thing, isn't Honda almost the same as Cahill in that he's partially funded by FFA, even if that is actually from Fox?
  7. Today
  8. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    We've either had a manager that didn't know how to defend, a manager that didn't know anything, or a manager that doesn't know how to attack
  9. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    Seriously, this is the bit that drives people mad. The Tards were busy recruiting Toivonen and Honda and Joyce decides into the season to freeze Bruno and now we have no recognised striker. And we have no quality attacking midfielder. FMD if that’s not the mad work of a second rate man manager.
  10. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    Fuck it shits me that even if we have a great Jan transfer and look stronger for the future that we will be so far down the ladder on current form and the damage from all the fallout will render this season wasted. Fucking Joyce. 5 months offseason. Does shit all - then another offseason before we can capitalise (or fail to if our history has set the precedent).
  11. The Great Annual "In" or "Out" thread

    Live too close too aami. Stuck with city
  12. Memberships

    Whilst the club remains a 'club' I will remain a member and supporter.
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Wasn't that when he re-signed for a further season (2015-16)? In 2014-15 our marquees were (can you believe it) Josh Kennedy and Robi Koren. Both failures.
  14. Not the exact case, but Mooy was bumped up into an empty spot.
  15. Memberships

    What I said is a bit ironic since I'm not a member right now haha. But if the club has an overseas deal like they had in the past I would have splashed the cash
  16. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    No way would Baccus be approved as a marquee. Nor would anyone else currently on City's books. And, TBH, I can't recall any marquee player being replaced by another one mid-season.
  17. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Did he recover from his injury sustained in teh world cup?
  18. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Thanks, any marquee must be approved by FFA therefore I assume he has to be or has been a special, hence Baccus could not replace Fornaroli as a marquee.
  19. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    According to https://www.fifatms.com/itms/worldwide-transfer-windows-calendar/ 3rd January 2019 to 31st January 2019. Mid-season rather than "winter."
  20. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    My understanding: Marquee: Can be Australian or overseas player. Two allowed per club. Paid by club. Must be approved by FFA. Examples: Fornaroli, De Laet. Full Season Guest Marquee: Can be Australian or overseas player. Must be approved by FFA. Part paid by FFA or sponsor (such as Fox Sports), and part paid by club as negotiated. Limited by funds available to FFA . Examples: Cahill, Honda. This is a relatively new venture, and so far there have been only two and only one per season. Guest player: Allowed to play 14 matches. Must be approved by FFA. Limited to one per club. Paid by club. Example: David Villa (four matches). All the above sit outside the salary cap. However, marquees sit inside the numbers cap and the limit on 5 visa players. Pretty sure that the Full Season Guest marquee and Guest players sit outside the numbers cap and limit on visa players.
  21. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    Hmmmm all very interesting............. #JOYCEOUT Might i add that Joyce is a dick that has ruined for me this very anticipated season, and can i also add that #JOYCEOUT should be chanted at the derby for 90mins. Its not longer about anything else for me as i have an axe to grind about this whole club not moving on this muppet earlier. Joyce out might actually help my sanity and when interested on lookers ask how Melb City are going i wont blurt out a satanic sounded language they dont understand.
  22. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Originally, a marquee was a player with an ability to draw attention to the A-League ex-star players, eg Yorke, Fowler, Del Piero, Heskey etc. Now as A-League clubs and the FFA can't compete with the MLS, CSL, and J- League to draw big-name ex-star players (Honda being the exception) , the marquee rule is now a loophole to get players who can't fit into the salary cap.
  23. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    When is the winter transfer window is it the same as UK 1st January until midnight on 31st January? If this is the case matchday 11 would be the first chance to play new signings if Joyce deems them fit.
  24. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I am still trying to get my head around the Cap and Marquee system. Did read somewhere that the FFA pay all or part of a marquee salary and it is outside the cap? If this is the case can Fornaroli only be replaced by another marquee player? What constitutes a marquee player is it a foreign internationalist?
  25. Memberships

    THIS I've put up with this shit club for 7 years, but at least it's my shit club. Managers and players will come and go but I won't stop supporting this club until it ceases to exist.
  26. Every season we've had this problem. It effects the other A League teams also.
  27. Wazza ' I pick teams to win games' Joyce

    I am sure I will be corrected if I am wrong. I do not buy into the hardness of the pitches I Scotland all teams have training pitches which are hard and made of astro turf. Therefore MOH is used to training daily on hard pitches. 3 teams in the SPFL home grounds are astro turf. Again he is used to playing on hard pitches How many other teams have the majority of their foreign players out injured due to the hard pitches I am guessing not many. They are trying to ban the astro turf pitches at home grounds because they do cause injuries and some players cannot play on them due to previous injuries. I still believe it is Joyce's training is the problem for non youth players .
