    Even if we still had Cahill, chances are Mauk and Budz would be starting up front next week with Cahill on the bench. Regardless of fitness and form, Joyce wouldn't have allowed Cahill to force his way into the team. Joyce reportedly told Cahill at the start of pre season that he doesn't fit the mould of what he wants in a striker and that he wasn't compatible we his style of play.

    Ahhh, I get ya. Probably not. But from his end, he has sacrificed a coaching contract. And that could've led to several years within CFG as a coach, even if he was a shit coach, given how CFG love shit coaches.

    We got sky blue jerseys. And he dragged us to an FFA cup.
  4. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Soccer Stoppage Time reporting that Joyce has been given instructions to get rid of anyone he deems not to be appropriate for his team.They expect at least 3 players to be moved on. Kilkenny is apparently trying to secure a move to Asia, Brattan's loan won't be renewed and Jakobsen won't be here next season.

    I'm a bit surprised he was given a 3 year deal. That's quite a commitment to a player who is untried at this level but is already 25. It will be very interesting to see how he performs

    Isn't it 1 goal scored from open play in 6 games?
  7. Rd. 8 vs Perth, Friday 24/11, AAMI Park, 7.50 pm

    When a City player has the ball they don't know where any of their team mates are positioned or where they are moving to because have no system for when we have the ball. The player looks up, doesn't see any obvious options in front of them, waits for someone to move for them but no one does and then goes sideways or backwards.

    No need, I can answer that one for you. We are not getting a stadium.
  9. Wazza Watch: The second coming of Aloisi

    When He first got the job he was interviewed on RSN: Harford (host): The position; Do you apply for these types of positions or do the City Group come looking for you? Joyce: Ummm . . . theres a bit of both really. You know, obviously, I've known Brian Marwood for a long time, um, from football in varying jobs and varying times. Source: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=106223 Lavicka won the double in his first season at Sydney. Well we don't have a game plan for when we have possession of the ball. Is this the players fault too? And while I'm on a roll, he doesn't make tactical changes, he makes personnel changes. Isn't it strange how we are able to keep possession of the ball and move it forward when the likes of Carrusca, Brattan, Budzinski and Kilkenny are on the field late in games.

    From what I can see, as long as Fat Ross is starting, Mauk will start with him. We need someone up front to run their guts out to make up for Fat Ross waddling about and not putting on any defensive pressure. Budz doesn't seem to be particularly athletic and Carrusca is getting old, has had a few injuries in the last couple of years and never had a big engine to begin with. Of course, if we had more players further up the field, our attacking players would be able to share the load a bit more. And I don't mean to shit on Celo and Ross, they are fine players but not workhorses. Brisbane have set up so Maccarone barely has to run but the way we have set up requires our attackers to run a lot.
  11. The FFA Management thread

    FFV has loaded up with 'old soccer' types with links to South Melbourne. For a while now its been rumoured that FFV is going all out to get South in the A League. My best guess is that the FFV see a new look FFA as the most likely option to get South into the national competition.
  12. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    I think it would be less shit if the FFA/Foxtel coughed up the cash and put some cameras on the far side of the ground. Last night, the cameras view of the handball was obscured by Mills' body. Its really hard to overturn a decision when the replay can't clearly show the incident.
  13. The FFA Management thread

    https://soundcloud.com/fnr_footballnationradio/fnr_football-football-extra-25-october-2017-archie-fraser If you get a chance, have a listen to this interview with former head of the A-League Archie Fraser. He goes into great depth with his struggles and frustrations with the FFA whilst trying to improve the league. He compares it to his extensive experience in the corporate world and the AFL. It is fascinating stuff.

    I've been wondering if there is something going on behind the scenes with Killa. I don't think he has appeared since the Sydney game where he remonstrated publicly with our coaches. Surely he would be the first player picked.
  15. Rd 01 City vs Brisbane (AAMI Fri 6/10, 7.50KO)

    The thing is, we never actually played beautiful football. This forum spent most of last season complaining about a lack of creativity and a reliance on set pieces to score, not just our poor defence. And while we didn't concede against roar they cut us open several times in the first 30. Our defensive effort was great but the organization was poor. Our pressing was uncoordinated and chaotic, leaving massive gaps off the ball and free opponents in the centre of the park. If we were playing against an actual football team we would've been destroyed. We have always had talented players but we have always been disorganized. When we come up against well coached teams we struggle and have no mechanisms to combat our opponent's system. How many times have we complained about city players who performed better at their other A-League clubs? It shouldn't be a discussion about an attacking philosophy vs defensive philosophy. Nor should it be a discussion about ideology vs pragmatism. It should be about a poorly coached team that relies on individual brilliance to compete with teams with far less talent (and far smaller wages on and off the field).
