  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Agreed. This is not a priority for spending. We've got cover in Vidosic, and almost certainly good youngsters (Najjar?). Bruno could do with an attacking foil, from the wing or midfield, to give him space, though. This, and a strong central defender, are the obvious gaps in the squad. As I think we've all agreed many times. I find myself agreeing with you. Several of our signings are being discounted because they're not glamorous, even though they may prove to be astute and effective.
  2. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    We played there last pre-season. Decent art gallery. Flat.
  3. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Total speculation, but I've noticed PEC Zwolle's keeper has been rated in the fours out of ten for the last two matches, and has hence been their worst rated player on the pitch. Is Bouzanis perhaps about to rejoin JVS??
  4. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Genreau has come on as a 61st minute sub with Zwolle 2-0 down away.
  5. Herald Sun is a Murdoch rag. Only useful for lining cat litter trays.
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Thoughtful Victory fan in my office (I know, non sequitur but allowed by exception) also isn't convinced. Doesn't think he'll fit, or live up to billing. Bear in mind what they've lost too... Really would rather have our roster, and the promise of the next Arzani.
  7. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Two to three still incoming confirmed by conversations at the kit launch. Fair to think there might be a marquee and/or visa(s) in there, just not a mega name like Honda. All the club have said is that a big name signing is not going to happen. And that's fine by me, as I'm not convinced the big name would be great for us anyway. Our best signings haven't been big names. They've become big names whilst with us.
  8. You need to be a signed up 18/19 member.

    Malik, eventually.
  10. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Which might explain why he wasn't picked for the match against Brisbane...
  11. I'm not sure anyone would pay that for him. If a League 1 club in England had produced him, they'd be lucky to see a seven figure fee, even with add ons. Until he's older and played at a higher level, he's very unlikely to command mega money. That's why I think the model we have may ultimately deliver the best value for us. We still won't see a big fee, but CFG might, and that will ultimately deliver in kind back to us.

    Unless and until the loan agreement is torn up and he is recalled. That needs to have the agreement of both clubs, but if it goes pear shaped at Celtic, I can't see City keeping him there and not getting developed, or Celtic paying the wages of a player they can send back to City. So in practice, the loan would end if it didn't work. Arzani is too valuable an asset for it to be otherwise, and CFG are not as dumb as Aston Villa.
  13. Daniel Arzani

    Don't disagree. And the lack of definite news about the loan is intriguing. I guess if it all goes pear shaped CFG still hold all the good cards.
  14. Excellent if that's the case. Very pleased we renewed our memberships now...

    Still in the mix for the lesser European competition.
