  2. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Rated as highly in the club as from the terraces by the sound of it. His one first team performance looked very polished. He *might* be a real prospect...
  3. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    Go see one and find out for yourself. Most amazing thing my eyes have seen (3 times) and would have gone to the US for this one if it wasn't for those pesky kids.
  4. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    of all the interesting and fascinating things that happen in space, why is it that a solar eclipse is the one space-related thing that gets everyone's dicks so hard?
  5. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Looks like a very decent starting line up with arguements made for At least 3 bench players deserving a starting role so looks good!
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Heard that Pierias was on 15k as a youth this season, increasing to 50k next season then to 150k the season after that if he performs. Insane numbers for a fucking 16 year old

    Italian International but is a dual international. So essentially doesnt occupy a visa spot, but cant play for the national team unless he hasnt represented Italy before.
  9. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Honestly sometimes I look back at MHFC and I was probably right about how stupid the whole #yoof was... because it had a major part in the last two terrible Seasons. Obv I know some will roll their heads at this because it is something I have been harping on about since Hearts first Season. But I also think that since then the Template to the winning the A-League has become more defined through Ange at the Roar, Muscat with his best MVFC side and now Sydney that the way to win the league is by recruiting Foreigners and Aussies from Aboard who are still near their peaks rather than past Stars. JA as he said himself many a time that he went into his First Season thinking we could do well because of the #yoof we had and then the four players he identified as keys to the squad doing well were all sold overseas. This was always going to happen, its written into these players contracts that they can move on for such offers so that is not his or the club's fault and in hindsight that money probably kept us afloat for that last Season. However it does not forgive him for thinking that he could form a Finals Bound A-League Squad due to having Behich, Good, Eli and Hamill... this was a strategy of having your Number 9 and two CB's all under 22 and history had shown it would not have worked anyway. (Behich is a good Wing-Back, but the other three are all rated very differently since their departures from Heart - With Injuries playing their part.) The point is the club went on with the #yoof crap from the start and JA brought in to it, which was fucken dumb because a focus on #yoof has become as every year passes even more so not a plausible way to became a Title Challenger or to win games and captivate new fans.

    quick question ^^^^^^^^^^^ as above LaRocca now Australian ? or Italian
  11. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Add Arzani and Crowley, and then Youth Players Metcalfe, Genreau, Delianov (GK), Najaarine, Roberts and Pierias to that and we have a squad of 20+6 and probably our list done. Tis pretty good tbh, with adequate reinforcements in pretty much every position.
  12. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    "Budzinski arrivera cette (fin) de semaine à Melbourne. Il part de Pologne direction l'Australie (Mercredi/Jeudi)" "Budzinski will arrive this weekend in Melbourne. He leaves from Poland to Australia (Wednesday / Thursday)" I would say that there will be an announcement Monday 28th August or shortly thereafter.
  13. The "Where are they now?" thread

    For the record, JA's overall A-League coaching record is 36.08% win (35 wins from 97 matches). Almost identical to JvS at 36.11% (52 wins from 144 matches). Also, so what if his record is good because of his choice of assistant(s)? Isn't that the idea - have assistant(s) who complement you?
  14. The "Where are they now?" thread

    He's undoubtedly improved as a coach since his stint with us. Anyone disputing that has the ole rose coloured glasses on imo. I think we need to at least note his improvement rather than dismissing any results he gets as due to his brother or luck or list or whatever. In saying that, i certainly dont rate him as a gaffer whatsoever; i reckon he's behind most of the other guys in terms of blokes that can coach. IMO they'll go close to bottoming out this season. Them or Welly for the spoon imo.
  15. The "Where are they now?" thread

    I honestly think JA is better coach after his bad experiences at MHFC obviously due to the influence of his brother, I think the operation is Brisbane in terms of coaching the senior team is at least as good as the coaching we saw from JVS. Is he going to make a GF or something before he is sacked? Highly doubtful... just like how JVS never did. However, comparisons of the lists JA had at his disposal compared to JVS in his City Seasons are pretty laughable, the bottom four picked in a lot of Heart sides where comprised of very limited players who are at best now List Fillers at other A-League Clubs if not playing in SE Asia or at NPL Level.

    Leaves Poland to come to Australia Wednesday/Thursday according to this: https://twitter.com/OwskiMateusz/status/899699211842793473

    Any twitters update on Bud?
  18. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Why is it difficult to recognise sarcasm in a post?
  19. Rugby Union

    WA huff and puff about everything... They have word they use often called: "Eastern Staters" and they will almost always be actually are surprised when you tell them nobody knows of this word outside of WA. For Example: Every Free Kick paid at Subi against the WCE is because of the Eastern Staters running the AFL... even when WCE usually sit in the Top Five of Free Kick Ladder (The currently sit comfortably on top ATM).
  20. Rugby Union

    WA are huffing and puffing but it would cost a hell of a lot more to scrap the Rebels. Plus lower travel costs etc etc.
  21. The "Where are they now?" thread

    No, Ross is the coach. John is good with the media.
  22. *SPOILERS* - Game of Thrones Episode Discussion

    that kind of bugged me how she kept mentioning it. we get it "dragon tits", we get it... good ep though, the spear scene was intense

    But there was a tender
  26. Rugby Union

    Agree, Rebels finish rock bottom, Force finish second ( Australian pool) Rebels Stay, Force kicked out. Rebels are in one of the toughest sporting markets in the world, up against the AFL in all its glory, plus NRL and A League I was a foundation member and stayed for 5 seasons , but enough was enough the same brand of mistake laden rugby, no improvement in the team performance Backroom deals done to keep them in the Super competition
