  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    FWIW i dont think Griffiths was signed as a squaddie in the normal sense, and Dario was really a carryover from the year before so prob wasnt either A squaddie imo is a cheapish, usually older player that can fill a role, but isnt a kid. Look at Rose, Muscat, La Rocca, Velaphi, Trefiro for example. The whole point that differentiates a squaddie from a signing is the money and role you expect them to play.
  2. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Disagree tbh. Our problem was either picking squaddies when we shouldnt have, or the kids not being good enough to push them out. Having a fall back option doesnt mean you have to play them. Dario and La Rocca were really the only squad players we carried this year imo, and in La Rocca's case i though he was a good one to have. Dario injured and struggled to fire.
  3. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Tbf i reckon the last time the club did that we ended up with Michael Mifsud
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Yep thats obviously the dilemma. Tbf there's no rule that says he has to be played over the kids, that just seems to be a default mentality many seem to have. If you could get him around minimum wage, maybe he's a good squaddie to have as he can play anywhere across that front three if someone gets injured. Couldn't have both Burns and Dario in the squad though imo, so i suspect the answer is we keep Dario and pass on Burns.
  5. Mooy for me. Utterly sublime in his two seasons for us. Bruno was amazing in his first season too and prob on par with Mooy that season, but imo the season Mooy had before was better than the one Bruno had after, and since his injury Bruno dropped off a fair bit.
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Only if he was absolutely dirt cheap. Sub 100k he might be worth the punt.
  7. Squad 2019/2020

    I dont tbh. I dont think he knows a hell of a lot when it comes to us tbh, to his chagrin, so its mostly hearsay and guesswork.
  8. Squad 2019/2020

    The going category usually refers to those with a question mark over them or a rumour fwiw. Doesnt mean anything concrete.

  10. It'd be a bloody interesting thing to know that's for sure. Re Florin, imo he'd be on 150-200k ish given where he came from and his history.
  11. Not really. At least in the sense of signing a player and then moving them into a marquee allocation once the cards fall. We've done that once with Williams way back when, but every other player has been signed on a marquee contract. Marcin, Colazo and RDL have just presumably not been on a huge wicket, but they'd still be marquee wages.
  12. Fwiw when i spoke to Wazza at that mctf event in Feb or March or whenever it was, he was frustrated that Florin hadn't been able to get a clean run at it and had played most games carrying something. He thought he could a really good player at the level. Im far from sold on him, but imo we saw enough in the last month to suggest there could be something worth perservering with, provided the price wasnt too high.
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Haha no as in a player like Ninkovic is now, or the player Castro was when he first came. He's played as more of a roaming wing/striker/mid the last couple seasons.
  14. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    More like Ninkovic or Castro from 2-3 years ago imo.
  15. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Pls don't take him or anyone that utters that stupid rumor seriously.
