  1. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Massimo Murdocca wins the NPL Victoria Gold Medal (best Victorian player). Also talks about a second division. http://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/nsl-quality-as-good-as-most-of-the-aleague-says-veteran-massimo-murdocca-20170917-gyj49k.html
  2. Braedyn Crowley

    I think he'll get a few opportunities this year, especially with Bruno out injured. As he said himself, he needs to grab the opportunity when it comes. Good luck to him.
  3. The road to the 2018 WC

    I'd add Juric to that list.
  4. Melbourne City Pre-Season Friendlies 2017

    We were beaten by one goal in a pre-season match that went for 120 minutes in terrible conditions. Both goals we conceded were from set-pieces. From reading the report it sounds like we created good chances. Remember that we are without Fornaroli and Cahill. It'll take time to adjust. No need to melt just yet.

    FSG released a statement on August 11 stating in quite clear terms that Coutinho would not be leaving in the summer transfer window. I suspect he will leave eventually though.
  6. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    According to Davutovic, the recovery time is 8-12 weeks. Best case is he misses the first few rounds. Worst case is he returns pre-Christmas derby.

    I've wondered about this for two seasons now. What would we do if Bruno was injured? He has been very durable so far, and this was somewhat bound to happen. Perhaps Cahill plays as a CF and Crowley replaces him after an hour. Interesting and disappointing times.

    Something like this: Thomas Geria - Williams - Deng - Broxham Valeri - Milligan - Sanchez Barbarouses - Berisha - Troisi That is a very strong team, but their bench looks a little suspect (Acton, Donachie, Ingham, Austin, Nigro.) If they added another one or two solid replacements then I'd be worried, but with ACL commitments and the FFA Cup they might be susceptible to injuries.
  9. Melbourne City Pre-Season Friendlies 2017

    Is there a chance Arzani starts this season? I know we have Mauk and we are looking for a marquee number 10 but wasn't Arzani regarded as a serious young talent? Maybe he takes a big step this season and breaks into the first team.

    Hence the 'should'. I'd be a bit more concerned if we were up against APIA Leichhardt or Blacktown, but Hakoah are a few classes below them. We need to approach it with the right mindset, and I'm pretty confident Joyce will be able to do that.
  11. FFA Cup 2017 Qtr F V Sydney 13 Sep away

    Hakoah lost yesterday in the last round of the NSW NPL season and finished 8th/12 teams. Second-lowest for goals scored in the division. Defensively they are a bit better but this should be straightforward.
  12. Talking City Fan Channel

    Thanks for the episode, always good to hear City being discussed in depth and not on SEN. Also have to say, in defence of the Regent, it is a great cinema. One of the best in Vic.

    As far as pre-season early-Cup fixtures go, this one was good. Joyce himself said that it is strange (to him) to have competitive pre-season matches but we emerged victorious. Our performance was what you expect. We were in command, we looked to dominate and we scored two. Importantly we didn't concede, which was our weakness last season against teams who played on the counter. Still early days but Joyce indicated that we needed to improve on things like being clinical in front of goal and capitalising on possession. It's a good start to build on.
  14. Y'all got some bugs

    I was having similar issues but mine has resolved itself. Strangely the colours change when I sign in.

    I think Fitzgerald is number 7 and Bouzanis is number 1, not sure on many others, though someone will probably take the number 10.
