  1. AFL 2015 Season

    I swear Bruce blushed five or six times throughout that interview.
  2. The road to the 2018 WC

    Does that ground even have lighting?
  3. 2015/16 Season Predictions

    The optimist in me says 2nd, behind Victory and Champions League qualification. The pessimist/long-time member says 6th and knocked out in the first week of the finals.
  4. The road to the 2018 WC

    Mooy/Milligan have more passes than the entire Bangladesh team haha.
  5. Brisbane Roar

    20% of Swansea City is owned by a supporters trust. To be fair though, Swansea is a reasonably sized club in one of the best leagues in the world.
  6. Memberships 2015-16

    Got a call from the membership people asking about renewing. I told her that I am going to be studying in Japan for pretty much the entire season so there wouldn't be much point in renewing. I am somewhat unsure as to whether or not she actually believed me haha.
  7. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    I just want the booing to stop so I don't have to hear about this anymore tbh.
  8. AFL 2015 Season

    Eagles supporters would probably boo Jesus if he was playing for the opposing team tbh.
  9. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    One of the most irritating things feminists say regarding the illegality of the pay gap is something along the lines of "Well, murder is illegal but people still do that!1!" Well yeah, no shit. But it is still illegal and you can still prosecute somebody for it.
  10. Science 'n' Shit

    Reminds me of Mass Effect haha. Most of the other races in that game are wary of us because we are determined bastards who just want to expand and colonise.
  11. Unpopular Opinions That You Have.

    I've always thought that Alice in Chains were the best band to come out of the whole 'grunge' movement.
  12. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    TTDIM: Tokyo Gakugei University are essentially sorting out my student visa for me. All I have to do is visit the Japanese consulate in Melbourne and fill out a form or two
  13. Finals Derby

    Premiers get 1 spot, runners up in the regular season get the half spot, and the champions get the other spot. If the champions are 1st or 2nd the half spot will go to the third placed team during the regular season. So no, we wouldn't get it. The only way we're playing in the ACL is if we win the whole thing.
  14. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    Oh my, some of those are cringeworthy
  15. Finals Derby

    I actually found it very easy to get the tickets I wanted.
  16. Finals Derby

    Holy shit this is going to be epic.
  17. Matchday Thread

    Why the hell did the FFA move this game to Adelaide Oval.
  18. Tando Velaphi

    Second in the league for clean sheets, and he hasn't even played the entire season. Legend.
  19. Safuwan Baharudin

    Sloppy? When? Apart from the penalty can't recall him being sloppy. I do recall many blocked crosses. there was 1 where he was waiting for the whistle to go, didn't go and was horribly out of position two things out of 90 mins? When ever Burns was his opponent he always beat him, in fact he seemed to take burns out of the game quite a bit by making sure he was first to the ball before burns. He wassnt sloppy at all (besides the pen) In fact, get Franjic and another good keeper to challenge tando and I would gladly take that defence into next season. positioning also horrible for the build up in the pen, foxsports highlights vid 54th min, completely out of place as burns has a shot on target wouldn't say we have a visa player that must be signed, some deserve another season, safuwan's best chance would be if we blow a decent chunk on a quality visa with him being a cheap option like germano has been People on here (collectively, and I'm on that list) have complained about every one of the current defensive line-up - Tando, Retre, Jaliens, Kisnorbo, Chapman, Clisby and now Safuwan - variously too old, too slow, too rash, too sloppy etc. etc. They all have their weaknesses that's for sure, but collectively they're probably the best defence that we've seen in five seasons. Honestly, I think that our defense collectively is one of the best defenses in the league. Sure, individually they may not set the world on fire, but you only need to look at our results over the past month or two to see how well they've performed together.
  20. It wasn't pretty, but it'll do.
