    One thing to have your home kit in sky blue. Another to actually choose to use it in an away kit. Awful colour.

    Ultimately for Joyce all his efforts would have led to a title if he were right, or at least good football to watch. Admittedly players should adhere to any rules they set for themselves. And I'm for players adhering to the coaches instructions. And if Bruno was an isolated incident I'd agree 100% with you. But with 2 coaches and multiple experienced and senior players exiting the club should be enough evidence to show just how poor a culture Joyce created. There are 2 sides to a story. But enough examples through the history of the world that it takes just 1 side to inevitably be the main perpetrator. I'll leave it at that and move on to talking about Javier.

    @jw1739 @bt50 I believe in taking sides in this scenario. Im not saying 100% but certainly favorable towards Bruno for countless reasons. On one side was Joyce, an unproven coach who eventually proved he is a poor senior coach. And the other is Bruno, a proven top player in the league. Given that Joyce already had run ins with other players, senior ones at that it shows Bruno had a point. This season under Popa will be further proof of this. Yes Bruno could have fallen in line. But as you say bt50 Joyce was the enforcer. There was no negotiation here, Bruno either had to become a yes man like the rest of the lemmings or fall out of favour. Whilst I'm not usually in favour of such behavior from a player, time had shown Bruno was spot on with his assessment of the situation.

    Was it warranted? Could he see the writing on the wall with Joyces tactics?

    As a general fan I've always felt and personally experienced more confrontations at AFL games. I'd say it's less safe for the every day joe supporter. Football differs where the active support factions cause problems more often than not between each other. But for the standard fan it's safer than going to the Afl games. I beleive this is the major point of difference.
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Am I completely out of the loop or no one has noticed our coach talking to Bouzanis at City HQ???
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Yeh I bit on purpose. I don't remember anyone saying visa players shouldn't be defenders. I remember a marquee defender as the discussion though. Bart was clearly asking too much, probably money needed to put him at marquee. I agree with the choice not to sign him.

    What's your point?

    Advised he has been learning the city way of playing football. Poor bastard sounds like he's doomed before he starts.
  10. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I've given adequate reasons I feel as to why not. Show me some sort of proof in the league as to why this is a winning formula...
  11. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Grand final winners in the past with marquee defenders? 0 as far as I could see. Coaches that have won titles in the aleague (your Anges, Arnies etc.)... number of marquee defenders?? 0 as far as I know Goals conceded last season? No real difference or improvement compared to the team's above us. Compared to what an attacker of equal standing in the league as Bart as a defender?? I choose the striker of equal standing every day. Australia's stock in defenders compared to strikers or top quality number 10? No comparison. Well documented even at NT level that we can't produce top strikers. Point here is we have many strong defenders to choose from. Last season? Proved no matter how well you defend scoring goals is key for entertainment, winning, basically everything. This teams priority needs to be attack. This forum? The whinging about how defensive we have been over 2 seasons. Granted Joyce the main issue. But now we want a marquee defender after all that? Pot. Kettle. Black. I've got more if you want it...
  12. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Rubbish. He's a defender. He shouldn't be marquee.
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I'm with you. Florin only possibility will be that he will only come good through a great coach.
