  1. Bundesliga and All Things German Football

    Speaking of promotion, relegation and the Bundesliga, Holstein Kiel are playing against Wolfsburg tomorrow morning for a spot in the top flight next season. Kiel have only spent a year in the second tier, after being promoted from the 3 Liga. Their stadium is also tiny, and only holds 10,000 people. Unfortunately they may not be able to use it if they are promoted, as the Bundesliga requires that stadiums have a capacity of at least 15,000.
  2. Seasons over. Was it a pass/fail? Discuss.

    As others have said, we have played some good football, but we haven't played it consistently, at all. This season seemed to follow a pattern where, we'd play good football, win 3-4 in a row, and then suddenly play awfully, and lose three in a row. We have to be good more consistently if we are to ever challenge for a championship.

    Oh for sure, I agree. His appointment just seems like such a bizarre choice. CFG want all of their teams to play the same brand of exciting football, yet, they hire Joyce, an old school English manager? As I said, those player changes in the middle of the season couldn't have been easy to deal with, but of course, that doesn't excuse things like being seemingly inept at substitutions.
  4. Seasons over. Was it a pass/fail? Discuss.

    If Newcastle win, we're still in Asia, but I feel as though automatic qualification is really what we should be aiming for. And knowing us, we'd probably lose to a third division Indian side. As for whether this season has been a pass or fail, ignoring ACL qualification, it's been kind of a mixed bag for me. The good was getting our highest ever finish, and seeing Arzani and Atkinson come through. I hope that we get to the point where one day most of our Aussie players have come in through our academy. The worst part of the season however, was our recruiting of visa players. The McCormack situation was unfortunate, but not entirely unforeseeable, and Cahill was bound to leave once Joyce came in, in my opinion. However, the decision to let go of Brandan is still baffling to me, and Budzinksi, well... It is easy to see that he was our third choice {Remember that Croatian bloke?). The club doesn't seem to really want him here. I would be okay with him being let go tbh. Bart was our only good foreign signing this season, and it wasn't even our scouts that found him, it was JvS. So, whoever's in charge of recruitment gets a solid F from me. As for Joyce himself, I am somewhat willing to give him some benefit of the doubt, it mustn't have been easy to deal with so many squad changes in the middle of the season, so I am giving a tentative pass. We will see if this season was just a building block towards something better, or just another 'meh' season. Like most seasons since CFG came in.

    Harper is such a tool
  6. World Cup 2018 - Russia

    Even the traditionally strong Asian teams are pretty shit this time around. This is probably the worst Japan side I've seen in a while, South Korea almost didn't qualify directly, and then there's us, if we qualify. The strongest Asian team is definitely Iran, and they probably have the best chance of advancing from the group stage.
  7. The road to the 2018 WC

    We have players who are in pretty good club form, such as Rogic, yet they play like shit for the national team. Same goes for Mooy, we have seen how creative, and dangerous he can be, live, yet, he has rarely played like that for the national team. Also, why the fuck was Behich, who has been consistently playing for his club dropped for fucking Brad Smith? Who has probably played more for the nt than at a club level.
  8. Australian kits (national and club)

    It is a very nice kit, but the A-League logo makes it look so cluttered. It would be perfect with the logo on the sleeve
  9. Stadium Porn

    Ajinomoto Stadium in Japan. Managed to attend an FC Tokyo game whilst I was living there. And yes. FC Tokyo fans sing You'll Never Walk Alone. The wikipedia article has more photos.
  10. Memberships

    Not quite a foundation member, I actually started out with a 5 game membership in 11/12, then opted to get a full one in 12/13. I have renewed every year since then (Except for last season due to being overseas).
  11. Fernando Brandán

    Guy was so coked up that he needed to destroy the advertising after he scored. Looks like one of those guys who'd get into a fight over a cigarette outside Sunshine station. Love it, hopefully he can carry this form through the season. But he seems like a gun so far.
  12. Strider Presents - Victory derby v1

    Fuck yeah! I had a good feeling about the game, but I never expected that! Other than the usual suspects, I thought that Muscat played really, really well. Granted, Victory's attack sucked, but still.
  13. Strider Presents - Victory derby v1

    Eh, it's nothing new, they did it with Del Piero and Ono when they were here iirc.

    Channel 9 testing the waters for A-League rights maybe?
