    Why do you want Valkanis gone? I'm pretty sure you've mentioned this prior to their apparent falling out. I'm interested to know what negative impact besides the obvious you feel Valkanis brings.

    A marked improvement IMO

    Excluding marquees that were originally under the cap how many visa marquees have we brought in? Koren, Colazo and Budzinski...I feel like I'm missing someone. But so far I'd say CFG success rate with visa marquees has been quite poor while under the cap visas have been very good.

    Your sentiments have been on my mind too. But the question I'd ask then is at what cost is their brand image affected as a result of this?

    Fair call there from the ref

    It's not that your observation isn't true but I'd also keep in mind that it would have been the beginning of the rapid decline in the Mariners.

    During which period? His time with Graham Arnold or post?

    Where did you hear that? From all reports I heard he was going to be marquee

    I don't think people are doing any research into Zac before throwing their opinion around. Make of this what you will but these are the facts. He moved from Gold Coast United to Central Coast in 2012, signed on by the most successful and best defensively minded manager in the league in Graham Arnold. Over the course of his aleague career he made over 80 appearances. On top of that he was a part of the 2013 title winning Mariners side, albeit being a bench player. In 2015 Graham Arnold saw enough quality in him to resign him again for Sydney FC. Then from all reports he left of his own accord for Malaysia. He has also represeneted the national team in both under 20s and under 23s. Add on top of that he is only in his mid 20s. From this information alone I think he would be an interesting signing and well worth the go, especially if he's on a low wage.

    Gamiero on the mend. Hopefully stays injury free Roar forward Corey Gameiro returns to football after three knee reconstructions and 22 months on the sidelineMarco Monteverde, The Courier-MailSeptember 17, 2017 10:01pmCOREY Gameiro kept having to remind himself it “wasn’t a World Cup”, but after almost 22 months without a game, a second-half cameo in a weekend trial felt like the most important 20 minutes of his career.On the comeback trail after a third knee reconstruction, Gameiro finally made his Roar debut in Brisbane’s 2-0 pre-season win over Sydney FC on Saturday.He hadn’t played since injuring his knee in his former club Melbourne City’s 5-1 win over Perth Glory on November 27, 2015.That injury led to his second ACL tear and subsequent reconstruction in the space of 12 months.Worse was to follow when he tore the ACL in his other knee at City’s Townsville training camp in September last year.“I did everything properly, I don’t take shortcuts with things, so trying to understand why this had happened again to me was hard,” Gameiro said.Corey Gameiro is back after 22 months away from football. Picture: George Salpigtidis“People don’t really understand the depth of how hard it is mentally and emotionally.”But Gameiro, still only 24, refused to give up. He had invested too much time in his career for it to come to a premature end.All he needed was someone to believe in him and that man was Roar coach John Aloisi, who in July offered Gameiro a one-year deal.“He was the one who put his hand out to me when I needed it. I really am so thankful and I won’t ever let him down because he didn’t let me down in my time of need,” the former Australian under-23 international striker said.“There’ll probably never really be a way to be able to truly repay him.”Gameiro was on an emotional rollercoaster after finding out last week that he would get some game time against Sydney.“I had to keep telling myself to relax and that I was only playing 20 minutes in a friendly and that it wasn’t a World Cup,” he said.“But I was extremely excited and really proud that I could be back out there.”Watching proudly on the sidelines at Sydney’s Macquarie University training ground were Gameiro’s Wollongong-based parents Jenny and Tony.“They were more scared and nervous than I was,” said Gameiro, who was grateful the ongoing support of his family, his partner Catey, fans, his teammates and the rest of the A-League fraternity.“That includes players that I don’t even know ringing me. It’s a real testament to the A-League’s culture.”

    Explain to me how other clubs making a signing affects our strategy for building a team for the season? Keeping in mind we basically know Budzinski is simply held up due to visa issues.
