  1. To re-start mid-June and to be completed including a shortened finals series by mid-August. FFA statement here: https://www.melbournecityfc.com.au/news/australian-professional-football-united-june-re-start-hyundai-a-league-201920-season
  2. I can't see us rushing in to sign anyone at the moment. We've got a lot of young talent coming through. The situation wrt the future of football is very uncertain so why commit to anything/anyone right now?
  3. IMO there's a distinct element of farce about this proposed restart. I'm thinking that if it takes place the final positions on the ladder will be no more reflective of the season than the positions when the league had to shut down.
  4. And it's getting worse. Support growing for a move to winter. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-23/the-golden-generation-of-socceroos-try-to-shape-footballs-future/12276826
  5. https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/a-league-players-hit-back-after-being-asked-to-take-reported-80-per-cent-pay-cut
  6. IMO you're both right. Going forward, if spectators aren't going to participate in football then it is going to be next to impossible for anyone to emotionally invest in a club. Half the enjoyment for me is sharing the experience, the anticipation, the excitement and then the reflection afterwards - going to the match, meeting up with friends on the train, talking about last time, sitting with"the gang" inside the ground, and then going home afterwards and talking about the match you've just seen. You don't get that watching the screen in your living room. Football is entertainment. All forms of entertainment are going to suffer and many will collapse without an audience.
  7. New kits every season is just a huge consumer rip-off. TBH I don't know why anyone gets sucked in to buying them. What's needed is a consumer boycott.
  8. For this season I don't think we can do that. Hendry is an injury replacement. If Windbichler is fit, then Hendry has to be the one who is "released" although where he is now and what are the arrangements for his rehab may mean that he stays in Melbourne. Also we don't know what the PFA and FFA have agreed on contracts that expire on 31st May.
  9. I think I'm with the Bayern Munich supporters - football without fans is pointless. BTW my two German teams are Hamburger SV and Energie Cottbus. I love the names that many of the clubs have - they evoke that feeling of tradition.
  10. Last night's matches were cancelled.
  11. If I continue my interest in City I think that I would prefer winter.
  12. Wonderful opportunity to get rid of the VAR. Hope to goodness we will take it.
  13. Strangely enough I find myself in agreement here. Let's do something different from previous years and try to keep the squad together. The player you know is likely better than the player you don't.
  14. Bouzanis, Delbridge, Griffiths, Susaeta, Atkinson, Genreau, Wales, Berenguer are the senior players out of contract at the end of this season.
  15. Just remind you of the thread title... In the cases of both Atkinson and Genreau I would say that both have proven themselves at the A-League level.
