  1. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Trying to play for all the clubs called Heart.
  2. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I'm sure he is. Whether he gets them is another matter..
  3. Stefan Mauk

    Not a player I'm keen to lose for all the reasons JW outlines above. But as ever, it depends on incoming. Also worth noting in passing that Mauk hasn't often hung around anywhere.
  4. Put your red and white kit on the wrong cycle and you can.
  5. I'm not sufficiently familiar with the details, but I love the idea of a vehicle engineering team who sign off a stereo that goes to 11, with a knowing wink towards Nigel Tufnell.
  6. You drive a Tesla. You are the authority figure...
  7. Dylan Pierias

    Pleased for him, but had hoped we'd use him ourselves...
  8. We should avoid at all costs trying to make City more geographically specific. It would undoubtedly be welcomed by supporters living in that part of town, but it would potentially put offside many of those who didn't. If that was combined with an out of centre stadium you would definitely compound that loss. For example, if City decided they were a northern suburbs club but stayed at AAMI, as a fan based towards Geelong I'd probably still attend, but I'd feel more than a little unwanted. Play in the north, and my attendance would be in jeopardy, certainly on a regular basis. If a club then opened in Geelong, all bets would then be off. We want to be one of Everton or Liverpool, not Tranmere Rovers (fabulous as local clubs like Tranmere are, that's aiming too low, especially when our rivals expect to be one of the big two in the city). I've enough faith in CFG that if Victory are going to be one of those big two, then they aim to be the other. We aim to be a club for the whole of Melbourne.

    Also of course frees up another visa spot if we need it.
  10. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I think we can safely say that CFG and the FFA aren't best mates at the moment.
  11. Melbourne City 2017/18 Kit

    Oath, I bloody hope not. I'd riot.
  12. Talking City Fan Channel

    My best game was also the 5-0 thrashing of Adelaide, and my best goal Ross scoring the final goal in that match. It was just the sense that he'd decided to upstage everything that had gone before. But serious head and heart issues about player of the season. Head says Bart or Bratts, but heart says Ross or Arzani. I suspect in ten years time it's those two we'll be talking about when we reminisce.
  13. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    I'm glad it's not just me who has this bleak view of how this would inevitably work out for us. He'd trip over a seagull on his debut for certain. I'd much rather we bust a gut to get Ross back.
  14. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Agreed. And knowing our luck, it would all go to shit anyway. If Iniesta signed for us he'd be crap or injured. Anyone else he'll be brilliant, especially against us...
  15. Seasons over. Was it a pass/fail? Discuss.

    I've had some time to compute the disappointment of not getting further in the Finals, not getting an ACL spot, and the often bizarre series of unfortunate events which led there. Perversely, I'm enormously optimistic that we can have a real crack next year, and I love the idea that we are building round youth and talent. So yes, probably a marginal fail this year, but actually some enormous progress laying the foundations for future success.
