    Fuck what is with the hate for Sorenson, yes he should have saved the second goal but he can have one mistake after the 86 saves he made last 2 weeks I was a bit sceptical on the visa keeper but he is the number one shot stopper in the league and is better than tando

    That sucks. But I'd rather we had a go rather than avoiding another goal.

    To me the new badge and the badge which was sold were way too similar for the new badge to not be infringing on the old badges trademark. I did a little bit of investigating and it appears the Manchester City have purchased the trademark for the old badge. The listed owner is the same as the new application too. https://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/1/UK00000986168 https://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/1/UK00003128350

    Went to the Victory game at AAMI today with some mates. It was my first opportunity to try the sausage stand for myself. My life will never be the same. I got a Spanish Chorizo with onion. It was truly magnificent. I documented it in all its glory to share with you all.

    Well that was a disappointing finish. Positive for the night though was our fight throughout the game. We definitely gave it everything until the last whistle. The other good thing is we may have lost but we are becoming an exciting team to watch. Two weeks in a row we have featured as the best match of the round, without doubt. I know it's a loss but it sure beats losing like the old day where we barely created chances and never tried to fight back in games. Moving forward, it's important the team makes a huge statement at home against Sydney next week.

    My first reaction to Mooy was there was contact as he wrong footed the defender, must be a penalty.

    The crap thing about this game is that the strategy was to soak up pressure and hit on the counter. Then we went 2 goals down and JvS shit his pants and the team came out harder in the second half and scored and we looked heaps better. Can never underestimate JvS mediocrity and poor mindset infecting the team.

    The media doesn't write about it because that would require work. JA controlled the narrative after our last meeting with the whole 'anti-football' thing. He makes those comments in his post game presser and thats all davutovic, hassett et all write about for a week. His comments were ridiculous, the challenges on Broich were no more or less cynical than those on Mooy and Novillo and the match was relatively even (and shit). He has done a similar thing this week by describing our attack as the best in the league, its a comment he can use as an excuse if they are poor tonight. All the while deflecting any criticism of his coaching. Classic self preservation as always. He pulled the same shit at Heart, the media still describes his first coaching stint as unlucky rather than an abject failure on every level because he gives catchy soundbites to our hack football media.

    There should only be one rich team wearing sky blue (us). Sydney to win 1-2 and a happy new year as a new coach chariots his way into our city post-game. Join me, my brothers and sisters, as we drown ourselves in copious amounts of sausages and alcohol

    The analysis in general is pretty shit. Looked to me like Retre had his eye poked as the scuffle broke out, nothing said about it.

    Novillo's in the A-league and not in Europe because of his temperament. He is now predictable in receiving, stopping to a walk, doing his cocky come and get it off me bullshit, then cutting inside to make room for a shot. Just once I'd like to see him continue the forward momentum, burn their left back with run down the touchilne and not allow their defense to set up getting a ball across the six yard box for Fornaroli to tap in. He is a winger isn't he?

    I agree, but i think the reason is because the better teams often press up on us, putting the ball player under pressure. Noticed that the tards did that in the first 20 mins last week too. I think we allow teams too much space in our back half at time, making them look better than what they are. Soon as we pushed up on them, they started to make mistakes too. Don't think many teams in the a-league can deal with this actually.

    We're allowing teams into our box too often and too easily of late. Sorensen shouldn't have to be so busy.

    Youre kidding right? Tando is great but shits his pants a hell of alot. No way in hell we would run out to block those shots like Sorenson has

    The positive is, we are playing a JA coached team. He is an expert at making a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 loss

    Agree but I think both it is still now as it was then that the media still see him as a national hero for that penalty. So they don't want to be seen as slagging him off unless it is totally obvious. Agree about him being on the front foot to control media. Either way he's still shit as a coach

    We'll win this one fairly comfortably, it's the Sydney game that'll give us a reality check. I'm gonna say 2-0 with the viking & Harry to score. Franjic to tear Broich a new one and be motm

    Walmsley is yet to put a 4'6" striker up front and whack high balls into him. in addition Aloisi had a much better squad then Walmsley has.

    It will probably come as no surprise to you to hear that in 1997, MCFC were not exactly financially stable. They were in the third year of former City legend Francis Lee's disastrous four-year spell as chairman of the club and were tanking in every way possible - this was the year in which they were relegated to the third tier of English football, after all. In light of this, Franny decided to make the absolutely fantastic decision to mortgage off a large part of the club's pride and identity by selling the copyright to the club badge, which was at the time a circular design not too dissimilar to the one just above, but far less clipart-y. I'm going from memory here, but I believe the figure he sold it for was a measly £1.5m. We were that desperate. Realising he had made a mistake, or possibly in a deliberate and cynical follow-up to his action in order to restore the initiative, not long afterwards the club then announced it was going to bring out a new badge, which they would of course suddenly have copyright ownership of again, thus allowing them to merchandise once more. However, it had to be significantly different in order to prevent any possible legal challenge from the guy who had just bought the copyright of the old design, and therefore thought he was sitting pretty on the right to control all merchandise himself. The new badge had a couple of throw-backs in the form of the shield in the centre, but it introduced several new elements, being A: the eagle/phoenix/buzzard (no-one is certain which it's supposed to be), B: the motto, which actually the fans have quite taken to, and C: the three fecking stars. These were - and the club openly admits - purely put in to mimic European clubs. What they didn't consider was that European clubs use them to signify trophies won, and at that stage there was no trophy we had won exactly three times. Since then, the stars have become a massive sore point to the fans as they represent a huge source of embarrassment - other fans have an easy avenue to mock us over them, particularly up until a few years ago in combination with the stupid "you've not won anything, you have no history" taunt. Additionally, few fans took to the design (although it's worth adding that those who were still young when it was brought in, such as myself, are noticably less negative towards it, and the johnny-come-latelies following the 2008 takeover which led to the creation of CFG have only ever known it and generally really like it) and there's a huge wave of nostalgia/animosity over the enforced loss of the previous badge which means that the over-30s demographic has been campaigning pretty much since the change of badge in 1997 for the new design to be gotten rid of and replaced with the old one. It just so happens that now, for reasons that probably relate to the design of the other CFG badges offering a chance to create brand association, CFG have finally out of nowhere decided to take up the course and design a new badge that harks back to the old design.
