  1. That's where I disagree. In this environment with a dominant powerhouse as our adversary and the potential of the another competitor vying for market share, our team's on-field success in the next few seasons IS EVERYTHING if membership growth is a priority. Everything else is just noise.
  2. Well that's what the thread is about isn't it? No need to guess as the title of the thread is quite clear, well for some anyway, and understanding my point isn't rocket science either yet you failed miserably. Not surprising.

    Luongo has gone under the radar and I think he is a potential X factor in the World Cup. Massimo Luongo, QPR Player of the Year, Socceroos news: Roos star nets Player of the Year award The midfielder enjoyed a quality campaign in the Championship, scoring six and assisting three in 39 matches. The award was announced on Saturday evening AEST as oart of the club’s Player of the Year Awards which also saw Nedum Onuoha named Players’ Player of the Year and Paul Smyth named Young Player of the Year. Luongo had a particularly strong conclusion to the season, and his form has led many to tip him to start for Bert van Marwijk’s Aussie side at the World Cup in Russia. The 25-year-old announced this week that the club had allowed him to sit out of their remaining fixtures in order to prepare for the tournament. “After speaking to the manager and club, we have decided to end my season now and for me to recharge in preparation for the WC. This season has had its ups and downs but would like to thank all Cup. @QPRFC fans for their continued support. See you next season,” he tweeted on April 26. https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/socceroos/massimo-luongo-named-qpr-player-of-the-year/news-story/6f4e8fd150697a08e2cc72eaee52bdb7
  4. You are very right on this mate, but I would say there may be at least 5k that aren't affiliated with either club and hate victory but aren't impressed with us yet. The danger is with a third team in Melbourne is that we will be disadvantaged the most and potential growth will be hampered significantly. That's my theory anyway.
  5. The game style delusion continues I see. The pretty football argument will never stack up at this level. The only way we will succeed at anything is by winning, anything else is just a distraction. Wazza has the right idea and let's just hope he gets the players to execute the plan. If not we get Merrick the next season.

    Calf and Achilles problems in an older player. No thanks. Time to move him on, see ya.
  7. Place all resources into the men, win, and get out of AAMI, support and organise active matchday Tifo's and chants with flares or pyros. Pretty much steer away from the corporatisation theme of the team and get back to grass roots. Lastly, prospective members like winners so unless we start to dominate Victory, membership will not grow.

    West Ham United are reportedly interested in an off-season move for Huddersfield's Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy, according to The Times. Mooy has made 37 appearances in all competitions for the Terriers, helping them seal their Premier League status earlier this week. However, West Ham, who also only recently confirmed their top flight status, are reportedly keen to pry the Australian away from John Smith's Stadium. Hammers boss David Moyes previously tried to sign Mooy when he was at Sunderland, when the 27-year-old's loan with Town expired, only for him to make his stay permanent. Mooy currently has two years remaining on his Huddersfield contract and is understood to be their highest paid player. According to The Times, West Ham have the financial power to potentially double Mooy's current salary and are in the market for a central midfielder. Speaking about Huddersfield's survival, Mooy said: "I definitely have emotions attached to the club because of last season. "They were tipping us for relegation and we got promoted ... it was amazing and now to survive in the Premier League, it's been made even better. "It's so big for the club financially and it keeps all the buzz going both around the town and at the club. "It means the club will be able to build up and get a new training ground, stuff that can make us stronger into the future."

    Just waiting for the leftist socialist commy media to get triggered. He should be sponsored by Rothmans or something.

    Popovic going to Perth
  11. Our next marquee....again (btw 1000th topic)

    Having a Marquee or a visa player on the bench is a big mistake. Given what Wazza knows now and the time he has to set up his team, I don't think it will happen
  12. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Good luck to Corey, wish him all the best things because the guy is a very talented footballer who has just had a very hard time with injury. Hope everything works out for him.
  13. Seasons over. Was it a pass/fail? Discuss.

    Because they were basically admitting themselves that they were incompetent and didn't have a clue. FFA need to understand that when refs are the discussion piece week after week then it is a bad bad thing for the game, very destructive to the integrity of the game. I have been on about this for years, we should get marquee refs from Asia.

    I remember the foxsports team saying that the linesmen have be told not to call an offside until the ball is dead because the VAR will review it in case it is a goal. Funny thing is even though their software was stuffed the fox footage clearly showed the offside. Surely they could have told the referee the check the fox vision at the time as the VAR wouldn't have led to a different conclusion than the fox vision would have. They are just hopeless year after year. TBH if I were the Jets stakeholders I would be taking this matter further.

    Haven't the linesmen been instructed NOT to call a close offside so that the VAR can make the decision? If so, I wonder if the linesman saw it and would have called it.
