  1. RD 21: Glory v City, Saturday Feb 24 10pm

    Staying on brand, nice. Hyundai will be impressed.
  2. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    How many responses have you had from each of the CFG clubs? For what it's worth, I filled it in during a slow work day.
  3. A-league expansion

    1. $ 2. Just wait til they invariably play 5-6 home games a year at WIN Stadium, to "bring the game to Wollongong".
  4. Rd20 vs Sydney @ AAMI 10/2 7.50pm

    YouTube is normally pretty good. I'm watching the Miami TV YouTube channel in HD (ish).
  5. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Harry Kewell is up for Manager of the month in League Two. He has Crawley Town 6 points outside the playoffs.
  6. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    Cahill played Under 20's for Samoa... We still managed to give him a few runs for Australia.
  7. Neil Kilkenny

    Wow, you're like a rabid dog as soon as anyone implies that Joyce may actually have flaws.
  8. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I have always wondered why the 'Loyalty Allowance' couldn't see a more immediate application. Something like an exponential increase, so that players have: 5% of their salary outside their cap in their second year 10% in their third year 20% in their fourth year, and so forth. With the money we're talking about in the A-League, this money is not likely to be monstrous. Given the small wage pool we are working with, once a player has established themselves in the A-League they're likely fielding offers from rivals for fractionally higher wages which can be hard to refuse when their current club cannot match due to cap constraints. In conjunction with the 'no transfer fees' rule, there is no reward for a player's current team for either developing or recruiting players into the league.
  9. Western Sydney

    It was always an unusual decision in my opinion. I opened this thread wondering whether the newest post would be something to this effect. I wonder what the implication will be with the vacant national team job.
  10. Bruno Fornaroli - "El Tuna"

    Don't ever change...
  11. The FFA Management thread

    A fairly apt analogy. I tend to agree for the most part; except this is more like having a daughter who is 35 and has a curfew.
  12. The FFA Management thread

    To be fair, it would probably propel him into a FIFA executive position.
  13. Tim Cahill

    If he does, Aloisi has the perfect man for his Mifsud-ball tactics.
  14. The FFA Management thread

    I still can't believe that his appointment was so widely accepted, with only a few dissenting voices.
  15. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    To be fair, Bouzanis doesn't really seem to be the most humble of people.
