  1. Before anyone takes too much stock, just remember we got done 5-1 by Welly last pre-season at full strength and went on to do the treble over them. And as @Embee said to me earlier, knowing Wazza they probably had to do sprints or something this morning.

    Better to assume round 6 and be pleasantly surprised if he comes back sooner. Pessimists take note.
  3. Fernando Brandán

    Mid November is only around 6 games in...

    Sweet. Don't be afraid to pop your head in from time to time and let us know how you're going.
  5. Fernando Brandán

    Good news. Hows the UAE?
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Yeh he's an Aus citizen now. You prob wouldnt want to spend any more than 150k on him, but under that he's a steal.
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Would def take under cap. Would be outraged as marquee.

    Italian International but is a dual international. So essentially doesnt occupy a visa spot, but cant play for the national team unless he hasnt represented Italy before.

    Add Arzani and Crowley, and then Youth Players Metcalfe, Genreau, Delianov (GK), Najaarine, Roberts and Pierias to that and we have a squad of 20+6 and probably our list done. Tis pretty good tbh, with adequate reinforcements in pretty much every position.
  10. The "Where are they now?" thread

    He's undoubtedly improved as a coach since his stint with us. Anyone disputing that has the ole rose coloured glasses on imo. I think we need to at least note his improvement rather than dismissing any results he gets as due to his brother or luck or list or whatever. In saying that, i certainly dont rate him as a gaffer whatsoever; i reckon he's behind most of the other guys in terms of blokes that can coach. IMO they'll go close to bottoming out this season. Them or Welly for the spoon imo.
  11. Haz's Dank Meme Thread

    Haha that last one
  12. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    He said he's quick and likes playing in a back three in the HUN article
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Probably yeh, which is a shade surprising. Im ok with either of Schenkeveld Jakobsen La Rocca Jamieson or Muscat Schenkeveld Jakobsen Jamieson
  14. City tactics 2016-17

    We have Cavallo as back up at LB, as well as Bort and Manny who have played there.
  15. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    If he's on less than cahill, he won't be the marquee, Cahill will. Accounting purposes etc. Tbh i have my doubts that figure Its even correct tbh, but no way of really knowing either way.

  17. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Maybe Bort is having tea at Biggie Smalls?
  18. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    And you have a moustache?
  19. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    How can you guarantee that?

    Hmm joined the forum Tuesday... Welcome to the club Marcus!
  21. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    No doubt. I think Cahill was clutch for us in big moments last year, but there's no doubt playing him in midfield affected our build up play at times. At the end of the day i put that down to coaching more than anything tbh. I suspect he'll play more of a super sub role this year in preparation for Russia (assuming we make it), coming on in the last half hour or so. The interesting part will be as to whether he does that as a second striker or more of an AM/CF role per last year.
  22. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    There's no obsession, although i wont deny i rate Tim as a big game player. At no point in that post did i say anything on his performances for us, just that i believe he was signed primarily for football purposes, secondarily for publicity purposes and very much peripherally for the change to sky blue. The actual output was your conclusion and statement, not mine.
