  1. R2 Etihad Derby 14 October 7:50pm

    yea last night I was there, thinking that I was watching for of a Sydney-esq performance as well. At this level, if you are solid at the back and more importantly well-organised (not just individuals) it is very hard for teams to break this down as frankly, the mids and forwards are generally not good enough. If we can blend this with some of the better forwards in the comp, we should be able to compete. But to throw caution to the wind as we did under JVS, at this level you give the ball up too much and leak too many goals. Can never work over the long-term. Great defensive performance, Great performance full stop and should have had another couple. But, not sure many teams in the history of the comp could have done that to this Victory team, with the likes of Bruno, Brandan, Brattan and Kilkenny, unavailable, with marquees Cahill and Bud not ready to start, and quality such as Marcelo not even seeing game time yet. I said that I thought this was our best and most balanced squad ever, lets hope it plays out that way.

  3. FFA Cup 2017 Qtr F V Sydney 13 Sep away

    very underwhelming. I knew a pom would bring nothing tactically, but physically should be better. we look slow, weak on the ball and poorly skilled. Hopefully we are in a 'heavy training load'! Also, did Bart look like he was trying to get out of the way of their goal whilst in the wall??
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Anything is possible - but why would Bruno delete it as quickly as i went up? Aren't they "family" anymore? LOL. I think that has been the giveaway - the immediate deletion.
  5. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    nah, the 'only training' sounds like a quick excuse after Bruno spilt the beans. I think Marcelo has agreed to a deal, but not officially signed on the dotted line. Bruno jumped the gun a bit. If he was just 'training' why would Bruno tweet it?

    brilliant gotta say, im the happiest i have been with our squad going into a season thus far.
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I had heard we were just about there with Carrusca 12-18 months back. This would be a great signing IMHO - with a marque AM imminent, Marcelo can be load-managed to get a great season out of one of the great a-league imports. Fresh off the pine he should be able to run amok! Surely at his age this should be an easy agreement - pay him what we can under the cap then agree to employ him in CFG melbourne academy the year after etc. He would be a good get for the club on and off the pitch.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?????
