    Bart apparently off to Panathinaikos
  3. Today
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    It will be a change to have a season where our worry is a shortage of defensive midfielders, rather than a surplus... In truth we're probably one player light in the 6/8 positions, and there are plenty of possibilities, including retaining Bratts. I'd still worry more about having enough talent to play at 10. Perhaps Osama might like a return as a 6? He's getting no game time in Saudi.

    Their fans have been complaining about the absence of "star" players for this season, so it's not surprising. Until the past couple of weeks they'd lost only one league match though.
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    With Baccus gone and Griffiths wanting to leave, perhaps even Schenkeveld comes back into the picture, except that we already have 4 visa players so it can't be Schenkeveld and Luna. Windbichler has experience as DM doesn't he? These departures must be giving Petrillo and Mombaerts a bit of a headache.

    Noticed New York City are sixth on their ladder don’t seem to be doing any better then us

    If Griffiths has to go to retain Brattan it's a no brainer for me. That could restrict the young blokes a shot, but if they are not good enough then that's how big teams operate. Brillante and Brattan might end up being better than Brillante O'Neal.

    Griffiths would have got pretty good coin when he was in Uzbekistan imo. IIRC he was the record transfer fee for the A League for a period.
  10. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Yeah I think those fringe players just have to bank as much as they can while they can. Someone like Bruno or Brattan can afford to stay loyal when they are earning $350k plus anyway but Griffiths would be on $200kish so even a $50k pay rise means a lot more to him than others.
  11. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I don’t blame him for chasing the money while he can, plus he can always come back and join CCM or the Nix once he’s cooked
  12. Yesterday
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    That might be the play, reading between the lines. It would seem to me that Bratts would rather stay here than go to another A League club if he could.
  14. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Quite predictable really. The bloke has played for a different club every season. Seems to get bored pretty quickly and is a mercenary. If we lose him we’re definitely light on for midfielders. Maybe we could keep Brattan after all?
  15. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    He's been trying to get over to Korea since January.
  16. 19/20 Puma Kits

    Less sky blue, not more. Looks horrendous.
  17. 19/20 Puma Kits

    W-League kit also just released
  18. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Griffiths is no big loss, I'm looking forward to seeing what the likes of Metcalfe and Genreau can do instead of old and overrated A-League journeymen. I don't know heaps about Luna, but I wish we'd go for someone with a greater pedigree of the ilk of Diego Castro, Ninkovic or Toivonen who all had either profound top flight European league or international experience. Obviously Fornaroli was a big unknown before coming to us and proved to be a huge success, but with our supposedly rich owners backing us I'd love to see us land a big fish just once. Luna really just doesn't strike me as being marquee quality without first proving himself in the A-League, he played for Veracruz which was by far the absolute shittest team in the Mexican league last season (they won 2 games and were 22 points off the pace of second-last) and hasn't played for any reputable clubs before that.
  19. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    nah fk him, good player on his day, but brillante all the way, dont want him and josh side by side, we need more attacking in midfield.
  20. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Bye bye 👋🏽
  21. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Would be sad to see him go.
  22. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Interesting. It's starting to look like a very different squad from last season.
  23. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Perhaps Royston Red Card can see he won’t be playing much?
  24. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Good, fuck off you giraffe on stilts.
  25. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Free up some cap space for Bratz ?
  26. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    That sort of logic is exactly what the club needs to adopt, foolproof. Definitely need more pussy talk on here.
