  1. SF @ Newcastle, 7.50 pm Fri April 27

    So where is the place to go, here or the Imp?
  2. 2018/2019 season memberships

    Wow. Quite a rant but a refreshing way to look at the club. Currently MCFC certainly seem to have ossified brains and be locked into the Einstein theory of insanity. How about the Stig for president.
  3. Exactly. Compare us to Newcastle, who were also playing a dead rubber but stepped up and scored 8.
  4. Memberships

    I am not part of them but Active are a very important factor in the match day experience. They provide noise, colour, movement and fun. Does the club recognise this and do they support you guys?
  5. Memberships

    It's interesting that people say a big name won't bring spectators when those figures indicate the opposite. 2014/15 David Villa 2016/17 TC Without those two "aberrations" one could almost see a steady increase. 6-7-8-9-10-11 thousand - or do I have rose coloured glasses? The final a-league.com.au "membership" is 118,418 (up 1,300) with most clubs showing an increase. It's only Adelaide who dropped by 3,000 us (2,000) and WSW (1,000) who kept it down. Funnily enough the Aloisi factor saw Brisbane's membership jump by 2,300. Heartening, but the total a-league membership could still be better.
  6. Tim Cahill

    Then you both woke up. Listed as a sub and didn't get on the ground.
  7. Melbourne City FC Functions & Events Thread

    Went to the last one with my wife and wouldn't go again. Juvenile waste of time.
  8. Ross McCormack

    As of 25th March on Ultimate A League Ross is still the second top goal scorer with 14 goals to his credit. Bobo is leading with 22 and next are Berisha, Mierzejewski and Riera on 12. What a loss and what a waste.
  9. Spud of the Match - Rd24 vs WSW

    Weeks?? Make that years. It was the reason he replaced Sorenson and then was preferred to Galecovic. Sure, he can pinpoint some of his kicks but it is well below 50% and the number that go out is just too many. I must admit though, last night his positioning and willingness to come out for balls seemed a lot better. I am still not a fan.
  10. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    There is no doubt in my mind that CFG have given up putting a lot of time and effort into Melbourne City, trying to develop the squad and, by extension, the league, whilst the FFA seem hell bent on stifling any initiatives. Why would you bother, particularly when FIFA are getting involved. Let's play a waiting game and spend our energies in more fertile areas.

  12. Bruce Kamau

    Flourished? If you are talking about the goals he scored in the first few games, just take the time to review them and tell me if it was good football or good luck. Kamau looked good when he first arrived then produced nothing for the rest of his time. We could do a lot better.
  13. ACL

    But that is primarily because of the FFA restrictions on squads. Lampard rules etc etc
  14. A-league expansion

    A league expansion news taken from AAP: Southern Expansion is considered a favoured bidder for one of the A league expansion positions. If successful they would initially split games between three different venues - Jubilee Oval in Kogarah, WIN Stadium in Wollongong and Southern Cross Group stadium Cronulla (home to the NRL Cronulla Sharks). They are backed by Hong Kong property conglomerate JiaYuan Group and received council approval late last year to build a 30,000-seat stadium in Loftus and a football academy in Barden Ridge. Now that is what I call a commitment!! Also a European based consortium with commercial activities in Europe, Australia and Asia, and company offices in Hong Kong, have taken over Adelaide for a reported 10million. Suddenly Manchester City's investment is not looking so big.
  15. What's there to believe in?
