  2. Iacopo La Rocca

    He's definitely around, I spoke briefly to him a week or so ago at a club function. I did get the impression however he was away for a period of time.
  3. Marcin Budzinski

    I meant more how is their squad not over the cap. He would not have beeb getting paid peanuts in Turkey and UAE in 2013, his salary was 830,000 Eur
  4. RD 21: Glory v City, Saturday Feb 24 10pm

    Agree with all of that except the part about us controlling the game until the red card. Agree with the points about Bort and it isnt the first time he's lost his cool and been costly.
  5. Marcin Budzinski

    I'd say the same way Bruno was under cap in his first season here
  6. Iacopo La Rocca

    I thought there was mention that he was injured. I'm assuming this is still the case.
  7. Iacopo La Rocca

    Yea I have no idea. I havnt seen him in any training photos or social media (although I dont look to often)
  8. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    I miss the flares. Good to see.
  9. RD 21: Glory v City, Saturday Feb 24 10pm

    Any news on Atkinson? He looked to have picked up an injury.
  10. Iacopo La Rocca

    IMO La Rocca has to come in for the derby. Delbridge looks like an NPL player.
  11. Iacopo La Rocca

    IMO thats's a bit presumptive. It could just be that he's viewed as 4th choice CB behind Bort, Jako and Delbridge. Could also be injured, which City have history in not being particularly open in.
  12. Iacopo La Rocca

    He must be frozen out, too similar to the Kilkenny case it seems
  13. Marcin Budzinski

    How did we sign the wrong Polish bloke. Also how is Adrian under the cap?
  14. RD 21: Glory v City, Saturday Feb 24 10pm

    My Take : Thought we utterly controlled it until the send off. IMO Joyce's tactics were spot on until the send off considering the approach that Perth were taking in effectively parking the bus and hitting long to Castro and Keogh. We were happy to pass it around and only take what obviously presented itself as far as attacking options go, although it was obviously boring as batshit to watch. Bart is absolutely to blame for the loss. The first yellow was completely unneeded, but the second one was even more so. You dont make a risky tackle like that when you are on a yellow unless you are absolutely needed to; Mills was going absolutely nowhere out there. Regardless of whether it was or wasnt a foul or yellow, it was an incredibly stupid tackle to attempt given the circumstances. In regards to subs i think Arzani coming off makes sense; we needed to shut up shop from that point and you take off your weakest defensive player from there. That is most likely Arzani, but i appreciate that Bud could also be viewed as the weakest defensively. Ultimately a call that would split most imo. Bruce to RB was forced, i dont think anyone else could have gone there except maybe Fitzy but again its a 50-50 that i wouldnt put all my chips on one way or the other. Personally didnt think he went too bad there tbh and was only really beaten when in the air. I agree that Wazza should have brough Bruno on for Bud far earlier. Bruno is way more industrious and would have been fresh, as well as a bit craftier should the counter opportunity have presented. The two goals were frustrating af, first given we were too busy protesting a foul to pay attention to Perth which is fucking farcical and the culprits (edit : Brattan and Jamo) need to be all sorts of dressed down, and the second because of our comical our approach to that corner was. Extremely pissed off with how that game panned out, and especially at who I think is the greatest defender to play for this club. He's bloody brilliant, but he should be treated like everyone else and in this case, he cost his club three points and a virtual guarantee of an ACL spot.
  15. MOTM vs Perth Glory

    Jakobsen easy. Not even close. Brattan, Bozanic and Arzani all played decent roles, but we didnt do enough in the attacking half for them to be properly considered imo.
  16. Iacopo La Rocca

    Agree, if Iacopo comes in we might be a chance, Delbridge not so much.
  17. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    How was Lorrente's tackle on Ninkovic in the 30th minute not any worse then Bort's? Not even a foul given
  18. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    iirc, Fox has made a very dedicated effort to downplay the behaviour - as if to say Fox won't give the muppets who wanna rip flares 15 minutes of game. Personally don't see where the fun is. In anycase if your clubs been in trouble for the shit in the past then what the hell are you doing baiting the FFA?
  19. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    FOX commentators didnt say a word about them, even though the whole pitch was just smoke
  20. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    Am listening on the ABC listen app, had to laugh. Flares from rbb straight after, here comes a loss of a few points...

    We'll that was really shit and unfunny
  23. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    Thats the Redmayne me know! Clap boy clap
  24. Iacopo La Rocca

    Do we know what has happened with Iacopo? Has he been frozen out or is he injured or just not selected He would be my preference to replace Bart over delbridge, as he has the experience in massive games and had been pretty solid when he played for the majority
