  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Interesting debate regarding having a stacked 1st XI and budget backups. I'm not convinced it's the best approach. Okay Sydney did it for 2 seasons in a row but that still doesn't fully support that approach. They had 3 outliers that probably won't happen again for a while (IMO). Firstly they had by far the best coach in the League at the top of his game (and Fwiw I hate Arnolds guts) secondly none of their main players missed any significant games and thirdly and mostly overlooked they stretched their cap with promises and bullshit in upcoming season's that to me is unethical. Now if Sydney do it again this season with a lesser coach and more cap scrutiny then I'll stand corrected. We on the other hand are extremely well placed to complete a very strong and balanced 16/17 squad. Just because we still haven't filled our last 2 important places yet doesn't mean we won't. We have arguably the best striker already and Marquee and arguably the best CB. O'Halloran could possibly be the best winger. So we nail the last 2 spots in the next 4 or 5 weeks we will have the best list on paper this club has every seen.

    Actually most leagues have quotas. Germany's Bundesliga 1 and 2 do not have a maximum foreign player limit, but instead a minimum "local" player limit. At least 8 players must have played for the club in three seasons each before turning 25, and at least 4 further players must have done the same at any German club. France's Ligue 1 appears to have a limit of five foreign players (with a similar meaning as above) and further allows only four to be playing on the field at any time. However sources on this are unclear as to whether the five is actually four (and thus the second limit is unnecessary). Actual regulations are not easy to find. English Premier League currently requires a minimum of 6 "home-grown" players in the match list of 18, which is expected to rise to 7 and additionally require a "club-grown" player in 2018-19. Notably this rule explicitly disregards nationality or citizenship. Such players must have played three seasons or three years for an English or Welsh-affiliated club before or during the year they turn 21. So as far as rules go every League pretty much has its own set, which is more beneficial is up for debate and most notably beneficial for who?
  3. Disagree. We are decades behind. And the way I see things soccer in this city and country will always be regarded marginal.

    Not sure he will get another game soon. Copped 5 and the 3rd one was really embarrassing.

    Jamieson has been good.

    I prefer the two pronged approach, I just feel it's more inclusive.

    Obviously this can be spun any way you like depending on your opinion. But for the amount of money is being paid and it only being a 1 year deal it's a massive gamble by the tards. Add to that they have lost a big number of their core, Honda instead of being a cherry on the cake is probably going to have carry the team. It's Almost the same as when ADP was here. Imagine having ADP in Arnolds Sydney FC side.

    Too long. Shouldn't go past 58mins. But as always a good listen.
  9. That's the final fucking straw. I'm out. After all these years I can't sit in my birdshit stained seat next to the most moronic areshole.
  10. I knew there had to be something. It said you can access the tickets 4pm on Thursday.

    I would love that. Would the FFA sign off on a EDS player as our Marquee? I highly doubt it, there is probably some sort of rule already preventing it.
  12. In before someone finds a problem with this.
  13. Seriously a safe flare. It's like trying to market Claytons back in the day.

    From what I've seen Scotlands requirements are less. My only reason for this, is the length of time since the Manchester announcement and unless I've missed it no official loan announcement. Remember he can't play for anyone else if he is officially loaned and Celtic change management and don't rate him.
