  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I mean, you say that, and granted I haven't been able to see any of the games thus far to be able to physically observe how the team is performing, but they've hardly been going great guns under Paddy so far. Their record after 4 games is only W2 L2, scored 9 conceded 9 and sitting dead centre of the table in 5th. They're only 3 points (and 5 GD) off the top of the table, sure, but it's not exactly the barnstorming form of their first season.
  2. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Here's another question: terminating a contract involves buying it out. How does that work with the salary cap?
  3. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I'm going to have to go and say that if several players were all being mutually terminated in the middle of a season, there'd be a lot more rumour flying around than this. Managers leaving at awkward points happens all the time, as does staff leaving (though usually with the manager) but you just don't see numbers of players ripping up their contracts (or having them ripped up) en masse, not least because it's basically impossible for the club to replace them for several months.
  4. Jodie Taylor

    In the latest link-up between us and Seattle Reign, it's been confirmed that Jodie Taylor, the 31-year old Arsenal forward with 30 caps for England, is going to join Melbourne City Women in January at the end of her current contract before heading off to Cascadia. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42071258
  5. Woot! Not only taking the three points but keeping a clean sheet despite playing with 10 men for 30 minutes is massive. Not the perfect game in the way we played but a great one all the same.
  6. That would have been some goal if the ball had curled the other way... Got to say that I sympathise with @Forever City - I know we look a lot more stable than we have since...well, ever...but I just can't ever feel safe when a man down, and I'm far too expecting of a complete collapse in form no matter how consistent a team has looked in weeks or months before.
  7. Same, looked like one of those where there was no foul intent meant but clearly the keeper should've kept his hands in better positions. I'll take the pen all the same. And as I write this, I completely miss the second goal. Sounds about right...
  8. First game I've actually been able to watch a match this season. Got to admit that the three (league) wins in a row at the start of the season is unnerving me a bit so apologies in advance if I jinx us completely for this one.

    Thought you guys would appreciate this story: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41741657

    @fensaddler @dconder13 @kingofhearts @sharpy @neio @Shahanga @haz @Thrillhouse @HEARTinator Congratulations all, you just got quoted by the Birmingham Mail (where Aston Villa are based, if people weren't aware). http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-heres-what-melbourne-13686414

    haha, I was only being facetious in the first place. Abwehr appears to be the German word for defender, it's just not what we associate the word with...
  12. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Sure, but the Abwehr ceased to exist in 1945...
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I'm quite interested in the story of Steve Whyte, who according to that screenshot plays in the position Abwehr (i.e. the WW2 German military intelligence organisation). Is he some kind of time-travelling Nazi agent?

    Unfortunately I live as close to Manchester as you guys do to King Island, so I've really only got the same tools for checking this as you guys do. However, I can point you in the direction of this article, which I believe is the source of the tweet you all were commenting on earlier: http://www.sport.pl/pilka/7,64946,22360347,byly-pilkarz-cracovii-trenuje-z-manchesterem-city-wyjazd-do.html
