  1. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    Take a look at last the 8 league game for Victory: 6 games are in Melbourne. Helps there was an "away" derby, but still a great run

    Sydney have had a goal disallowed by VAR for offside. Loving it, even with Aloisi being the "architect" Both Sydney and the Victory get more home matches at the end due to ACL appearances. Would apply to us if we weren't so shit and always finding a way to miss qualification for the ACL.
  3. well, wheres your Budzinski for starters ....
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    The club thinking for next season is one thing, getting carried away on specifics as outsiders looking in is another. Particularly when transfer news in the off season can be a dime a dozen and the fact the club tends to play transfers close to the chest Don't get me wrong either; I do appreciate when people bring up tweets, etc, about club related news. I simply take most with a grain of salt since there's always some sort of bs out there too
  5. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    With the way visa players move around in China, I can't see Gulum having a problem getting released from his contact mid year. The fact he's out on loan indicates he's certainly on the outer. The fact we have La Rocca and Delbridge already signed for next season makes me wonder if we have the squad space to sign Gulum so he can partner Bort at the back. In anycase this season hasn't even finished; discussing hyperthetical signings for next season aren't worth the keyboards they're typed on
  6. A-League Fixture 2017/18

    Agree, and would add that no one invested or interested in the game should be happy. Sadly part of the problem is what happens when too many people who run the game become happy with the status quo, and fail to put money into either expanding or marketing the game. Don't know about anyone else, but I get a sense that the game here has been reeling since we lost the bid for the 2022 World Cup - almost as if the FFA put all it's eggs in the one basket and didn't know what to do / have a plan b
  7. A-League Fixture 2017/18

    I don't see an easy solution in the current climate. When it come to FIFA international breaks, there are five through out the year (three of which interact with the running of the season). Given two directly impact the start of the season (always the weekend after the AFL & NRL granny's) and mid November (just before the summer of test cricket starting), the FFA are in a bind. Do you give up vital weekends when the lack of other Aussie sport gives a free run with media, etc, or do you allow the current impact of 5-10 players being on national duty lower quality. To go with having a break means quality Socceroos home games is a must - irrespective of who, we need the bigger (mostly South American or European) nations coming out. In terms of the Champions League breaks, the only thing that frustrates me is that having a two game round / split in the middle is too light on. Expansion will help total games wise (6 or 7 games as opposed to 5 a normal round) but just even things out over 3-4 weeks FFS

    iirc, Fox has made a very dedicated effort to downplay the behaviour - as if to say Fox won't give the muppets who wanna rip flares 15 minutes of game. Personally don't see where the fun is. In anycase if your clubs been in trouble for the shit in the past then what the hell are you doing baiting the FFA?
