  1. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    Yep. Funny to think the club is nearly ten seasons old, too.
  2. THE DECIDER Melbourne Derby 2/3, 7.50pm

    If we scored goals, and stopped other teams from scoring, we'd actually be decent. Oh, and if we had decent facilities, we'd be pretty good too! No wonder Timmy left, I mean we just don't have the resources, so being mediocre is definitely fair enough... ...by the way, I was being sarcastic.

    This warrants a green line, imo.
  4. Marcelo Carrusca

    Was laughed at a couple of weeks ago for originally suggesting that it wouldn't surprise me if Joyce wasn't a fan of Bruno because of his flair etc (which I actually meant as a compliment to Bruno). If it does head that way, then I'll be done too. Carrusca leaving is very disappointing as far as I'm concerned but good on him for going to a club where he'll be properly utilised.
  5. Wazza - In the Departure Lounge?

    Would have to agree, I honestly hope that CFG have learnt from this and actually properly invest in a decent manager, because it certainly doesn't reflect well on them. One person already on our books who imo will make a great manager is Kisnorbo, however it'd be best to wait a couple of years for him to get more experience etc, but he definitely has the makings to be a top manager one day.
  6. Rd 13 vs WSW(away) New Years Day 7.50

    That's what you get when you're so far down the CFG pecking order compared to Man City and NYC. Cbf saying anything else because it's already been said, but what a shambles this has been.
  7. Wazza - In the Departure Lounge?

    Said something similar in another thread mate. In an ideal world, we have Ross and Bruno firing up forward together with a decent number 10 signed in January to link up with them. But whether that actually happens is another story.
  8. Marcin Budzinski

    It just doesn't make sense to sign someone as a marquee then subsequently hardly even play them. We better have someone decent lined up as a replacement.
  9. Christmas Derby 23rd December

    Was just putting it out there, as reputations don't matter with Joyce. It's obviously all hypothetical and I'm not for one minute suggesting it'd occur (and quite frankly he'd no doubt team up well with Ross) but in my current state of frustration with this club, nothing would surprise me anymore.
  10. Christmas Derby 23rd December

    So, we get rid of Cahill and Brandan, refuse to play our marquee in Budzinski, and refuse to play our best player from last season in Kilkenny. Then we refuse to play Galekovic, one of the best GKs in the history of the league, and we play Bouzanis who predictably fucks something up at the worst possible moment. At least Atkinson has shown he can play, but all I'll say is we're lucky we won the first four games of the season otherwise we'd be much lower on the table. And McCormack easily straightened us up when he came on. But we were comprehensively outplayed before he came on, especially in the first half and it was very hard to watch. The question has to be asked - would WJ even play Fornaroli if he was fit? Maybe he would as he was on fire in the pre season, but players with flair and creativity don't go down too well with WJ so who knows. Nothing would surprise me anymore. Inexcusable with the CFG backing after four seasons.
  11. Christmas Derby 23rd December

    It's been a perplexing season, that's for sure. Couldn't make it tonight (been a member since day one of Heart so sue me) and seeing the highlights in the pre match footage of the old derbies when we were red and white were a sight to see. Now we're wearing City Blue and playing for a 0-0 draw in a home derby when we're sitting above them on the table. Bewildering.
  12. Christmas Derby 23rd December

    Wouldn't have it any other way.
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    With Marwood being at the game on Friday night, you'd hope there's some truth to this.
  14. Rd. 8 vs Perth, Friday 24/11, AAMI Park, 7.50 pm

    And whilst also being a Liverpool fan since the early 00s hasn't been easy, I do understand it could be a lot worse too.
