  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    who knows if we have secured this guy, but either way he seems the right age and type to thrive in this league. Physical and mental strength as big a factor as skills in this league, especially when the more technically gifted players who come are physically so past their prime. And - whoever it is, I can only hope/assume that the gaffer actually has finally had a look at a squad and is recruiting for the type of position he actually needs/wants.
  2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    now I do not believe for a second this rumor is credible at all. But, I am waiting/expecting that sooner or later CFG will leverage both the USA/AU seasons/markets to sign a player that will be able to play 70% or less of games for NYC, then swing them to us after their season etc for a season or 2. Now, Zlatan would fit the bill perfectly... playing say every second game for the remainder of the NYC season depending on injury status? then coming to us playing similar game time/off the bench etc depending on how his body holds up. Just not sure why he would chose to do this now, when he still has the talent to continue in europe with teams such as Milan now after him.
  3. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    because we have absolute pretenders and utter impostors running this club - hopefully wazza is the conduit which forces CFG to realise this.
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    absolutely - look how how little time the european clubs get - actual 'training' at the base with all of the home comforts/it data etc etc - most of the pre-seaons players are either away, on international duty or playing silly friendlies around the world with half or quarter strength teams after going out the night before to LA/Beijing/NYC's night posts lol.
  5. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    caceras officially gone? Dont mind this tbo - pretty average player who is just too slow for a physical league like ours.Kinda reminds me of a (extremely) poor version of NYC's Pirlo who hasnt adapted too well at MLS level either. Just gotta hope we can get good replacements for him and the Troisi spot.
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    not sure the gelling got worse - but the other coaches saw what we did to victory and changed the way they played against us. We were rarely left open space to do as we pleased. This was a coaching issue - understanding what plan a is, but then having a plan b which deals with the obvious change up from opponents.

    On a serious note - is Wazza wearing shorts?????

    Go and read about what CFG is doing in China, and what that deal was really about. (An incredible deal for both parties). A chinese 'club' is small fry compared to what they are doing - in fact committing to a single club could be counter-productive. They basically have the 'rights' to setup academies and structure at all junior levels throughout the whole country! Sure, they may say one day a Chinese club could be on the radar, but I think it will be secondary to what they are doing.

    I agree with most of this - but I think it goes deeper and they realise that 'how' to win this league is perhaps different to most leagues around the world. The level of player here doesn't auger well for European 'mainland' tactics of brain over braun - this is fine with the skillset of the worlds top % of players, but with such a low salary cap and limit on internationals, things have to be approached differently. Our league is probably closer to a lower level English league, than that of the western European leagues as physicality plays a bigger part. Perhaps the biggest part in determining success? Perhaps this league is a 'development' league. Is that a bad thing? Is it wrong to suggest it is? Whilst it is it's own league on the surface, fact is many of the younger players in the country will see it is a feeder to something else in Europe. A coach who can harness improvement from within is what is needed. You can only buy so much improvement, no matter who you are. This doesnt mean they dont want to win this league, but the method to the madness has changed.

    Interesting. Whilst his accomplishments dont jump off the page - he seemingly will add one thing which we need. Viagra. It seems the feedback to CFG was spot on - we need to harden the Eff Up - ASAP! You dont need the tactical genius of an Italian or Spanish coach for this league - it is a physical league, played in the summer and a limited level of player available. Hopefully the CEO role is the next to change - need some bloody cialis for that position as well. Our history as heart and now City can be summed up on one word - meek. Time to get a backbone, on and off the field.

    So CFG have just sold Mooy for more than the total value/investment/purchase of the Melbourne Heart club. Just puts into perspective how minor (in the grand scheme of things) the investment here is - but positions them front and square for the best talent in the region. It will only take that 'one' kid to return them on their investment in spades. How good is it gonna be watching Aaron in the PL for Huddersfield!
  12. Who Should Stay, Who Should Go? 2017/18

    100%. Last season we let go 2 defenders whom, whilst solid, didnt set the world on fire with us yet have gone on to be first choice defenders in the best team in the country by a mile. The personnel isnt the problem per se - sad part is there are probably 3-4 coaches in Australia which could have won the league running away with our squad/resources.

    you have to be joking and they are kidding themselves if they appoint him. Honestly, If they do I wont renew and would encourage everyone else to do the same. This club needs a shake up and a shake up bad. Every position from the CEO down MUST be under review. Heck, positions in CFG should be up for review with their track record across the globe. This stinks of excuses from the local branch saving face over the utter clusterf@ck we have been. JVS stunkpre-CFG, and he stunk post CFG.
  14. City Vs Roar, Sat 11/2 - 7.50pm - AAMI

    it is clear somebody doesnt want us winning at the moment. Cant say anything now, we are 'sooks' apparently. 3 clear pens in 2 weeks and none received, then we give away that one. LOL.
