  1. Do a poll for me (Strawpoll)

    Voted. Will we get to reveal results on here soon?
  2. Melbourne City FC Functions & Events Thread

    That's great the boys turned up. I only saw an Instagram story of it but what was with Bratts outfit though
  3. Melbourne City FC Functions & Events Thread

    Not directly club related but did anyone go to the Ride for Kids Charity event at the Stomping Ground with Sorenson?

    My answers to your questions
  5. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Thanks for confirming that @jw1739 I'd agree with that @bt50 but under the proviso that Atkinson is in the clear and capable of lasting the full game. If not then Muscat again.

    I was definitely pro Caceras. There were games where he dominated and ran the show. In between that he had some quiet/low output games combined with inconsistent man management which saw him being chopped and changed on the bench or playing a different role to the playmaker role. I thought he showed enough to warrant being number 10 role and felt he needed a coach to show some faith in him.
  7. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Ah ok well yeh I'd agree wiht you there then regarding our ins and outs of attacking players. Fortunately for Wazza Arzani has papered over this little crack in recruitment IMO. When you look at the players that have left (mind you I'm guessing a a little here so could be wrong): Cahill - Top Tier Kilkenny - Mid Tier Carrusca - Low-Mid Tier Brandan - Mid Tier Compared to... Bozanic - Mid Tier Vidosic - Mid Tier Delbridge - Low Tier I'd be suprised if we don't have a couple hundred grand if not a little more left over. I would imagine at this stage the club and Wazza have decided that they will use the percentage (is it 5% that can be transferred to next season??) of unused cap space for next season. Regarding Bruno it's 2 seasons on we're still waiting for a number 10 that is of similar caliber to Mooy. But I do agree with you about him. I honestly think he needs to adapt his game. It's predictable what he will do, the referees are on top of him and the league know how to keep him contained. I think you forgot the persona you've tried to create here

    Without doubt, negative bias is the life blood of this forum haha
  9. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Just to clarify I was simply stating that we've brought in more than one player. However to your point, player for player it seems we have weakened. However as I said in the Adelaide thread the biggest problem IMO is the inconsistent man management of our players this season. If we had our current crop of players playing week in week out we'd be in a much better space. That's the key ingredient to our success this coming week and the weeks leading up and into finals.
  10. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    In fairness to all the above mentioned we brought in Delbridge, Bozanic, Vidosic and have removed Brandan, Cahill, Kilkenny, Carrusca. We lost Ross but we regained Bruno back in the sqaud.
  11. The Run Home and Realistic Expectations

    I wasn't intending that we couldn't do it @bt50, I probably should have explained a bit better. I meant that people feel pessimistic because we haven't won a game in over 4 games, hence why winning three of the last four seems a huge challenge based on that statistic alone. Hope that clears it up. I for one feel we have a very good chance but only if we take 3 point against WSW as you stated.
  12. The Run Home and Realistic Expectations

    Performance wasn't bad on Friday. But we haven't won in 4 games either so the evidence suggests more struggle ahead.
  13. The Run Home and Realistic Expectations

    I'd be confident of claiming third with 9 points too. I'm not at all confident we can actually do it though. Nor do I think the tards can do it either. But I do see both teams picking up at two wins along the way. Depends if we can get that difficult third win along the way or at the very least draw the other two games and take 8 points.
  14. The Run Home and Realistic Expectations

    I'd say we have slightly less than equal opportunity as the tards of taking third spot simply based on the fact we are behind them by a point. In term of the last four games though I reckon both teams are pretty equal in difficulty. Their away games are Perth and Sydney which I'd say is only marginally tougher than Jets and Nix for us. Both teams have WSW at home and then they have Nix whilst we have CCM. All things equal I feel whichever team can get 7+ points of the 12 remaining will take third position. That point we are behind though is the only factor that I could see affecting this outcome.* *Or a complete capitulation from either team over the remaining games
