  1. Past hour
  2. The "Where are they now?" thread

    I'll just leave this picture here...
  3. Yesterday
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Agreed. Nothing wrong with any of our additions so far - O'Halloran, McGree, Caceres, Wales, Griffiths. Indeed, if they had all been signed by one of our rivals there would be plenty of grumbling on here that we weren't doing enough.
  5. Waleed Aly - I for one accept our new SJW overlord

    https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/afl-rule-changes-afl-calls-on-waleed-aly-to-help-state-of-game/news-story/3b782abad2133b30a5566cbec7fabff3 Seriously come on? Its shit like this that makes PPL be tempted by the Alt Right... a bloke being hailed a king cos of largely his Ethnicity on TV is now going to have a influence on of all things the possible major rule changes in Footy. And nobody is more Pro-Rule-Change than myself - But there are bloody ton of Australian Academics who are highly well known and respected all over the world who have even written Books on Footy. Every former VFL club also has its own well qualified Club Historian as well.
  6. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    ROFL - I remember we went up for game in Brisbane and stayed there... walking around I could hear so many Cover Bands at Dirty "Theme Pubs" being treated like Gods by completely smashed young Outer Suburban Brisbane Girls.
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Agreed. This is not a priority for spending. We've got cover in Vidosic, and almost certainly good youngsters (Najjar?). Bruno could do with an attacking foil, from the wing or midfield, to give him space, though. This, and a strong central defender, are the obvious gaps in the squad. As I think we've all agreed many times. I find myself agreeing with you. Several of our signings are being discounted because they're not glamorous, even though they may prove to be astute and effective.
  8. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    Does she get legless in Fortitude Valley every Saturday? Those are my favourites.
  9. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Dario bobbed up a couple times last season a could see him filling a void if need be. Do we have any youth strikers that could do a job off the bench? Quality Strikers normally don’t come cheap.
  10. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I think there are too many underrating Griffiths signing IMO.
  11. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    My sister in Brisbane is a binge drinking country girl
  12. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    TTDIM: Inner city Brisbane is full of low testosterone men and the burbs are full of mongoloid. Meaning you simply wear a collared shirt and string 3 sentences together and girls think you're a celebrity. If anyones in Brisbane hit me and we'll head out for a night of chasing bringe drinking country girls.
  13. 5. is more so 'the more supporters, the more chance to advertise our brand' Yea no different to Mooy. I hope Atkinson has an even better season but stays for a 3rd. As for Genreau (unless his loan goes tits up) I cant see him playing for us again.
  14. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I don't think that CFG care too much about no. 5. You don't build interest in the club by going on about "return on investment." I'd say no. 2 is the most important, followed by no. 1. And I'll stick my neck out and say that if Arzani does well at Celtic he'll be sold to the highest bidder.
  15. Too bad we missed out on Mat Simon...
  16. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    One thing I would still really like brought in is a back up striker, one that is different to Bruno as well. Clubs have worked out how to play Bruno a little bit I think (he is still a star and very effective) so on those days he is having a quiet day, it would be good to have a genuine second option with some pace
  17. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    Is there a game behind closed doors this week. Anybody got contacts at the club.
  18. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    good kebabs
  19. I think with CFG in mind, this would be the club's goals this season In no order: Discover/Sign a profitable young player to Manchester (Atkinson, Genreau, ... ?) Qualify for ACL (marketing reasons) Silverware Finish top 3 Average attendance (excluding derbys) above 10k I dont think there will be any requirement anymore for 'exciting brand of football'. I dont mind this, as long as we win. In my opinion, I loved winning the first four games last season.
  20. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Can we just fkn fold already.
  21. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Failing is not making top 2 and a competitive premiership race being close to the very end at least and a GF in the finals.
  22. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Look, I believe and many others that we do not have a championship winning team. We still have a marquee and Visa spot left so it is up to CFG to sign 2 awesome ex-european players imo if we want a chance of truly succeeding this season and be a top team this season. If we do not sign a Visa and marquee then it is up to wazza to get his tactics right or else we will fail this season (failing is not making top 3.) City has the true potential of being a championship winning team but if Melbourne City scouts do not look for good players (many free agents out there who played in Europe), then we will not succeed this season.
  23. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I’m a 23 man squad I’d be surprised if we signed another CDM with Brattain Malik and Griffiths already filling that Position. If McGowan falls through I’d expect a visa CB and a Visa CAM or winger.
  24. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    We played there last pre-season. Decent art gallery. Flat.
  25. Last I heard Gulum was back in Turkey but there has been no announcement yet of his new club. From your post, we would still have a visa spot free. IMO that should be filled. Can we find a VISA who is better then Ikon or Gulu/McGowan? I think we should be able too, but I dont know what the club's opinion is.
