  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Where did it (the rumour) actually come from?
  2. He played in the pre-season match against Perth.
  3. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Possibly an injury replacement? Subject to FFA approval we would probably be entitled to sign an injury replacement for O'Halloran, and for Malik if his injury is long-term.
  4. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    No. We have what we need, and that's good enough for us. Greed is an evil. No-one needs "his an' hers" basins in their bathroom(s).

    I don't buy this "not yet fit" stuff City puts out on players. In the case of Good he was playing up until shortly before signing for us and he's had several weeks on the track back in Melbourne. These guys are professional athletes and they don't lose fitness like the rest of us. City gets too many injuries - maybe we're "over-training" our players. By now all they need is light training, and more actual football. Bring on an expanded A-League, and more matches in a longer season.
  6. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    One former mining industry employee (Melissa Price) daring to suggest that she knows more and better than 91 professional scientist on the IPCC. I'm not sure whether I want to laugh or cry. FMD, as a former mining and metals industry manager I know first hand the lies, misrepresentations and twisted facts that come out of that sector.

    Missing: O'Halloran (injured), Malik (injured), Atkinson, Pierias, Good, Najjarine, Najjar.

    The focus for the next three seasons is return on investment. There's no improved return from more Bunnings' plastic chairs. Especially purple ones.
  9. Michael O'Halloran

    The City web-site says 8-12 weeks. Best call it a Germano.
  10. Michael O'Halloran

    I can almost claim one green line already with my season predictions. But, seriously, why does this occur every bloody season. Other clubs can get all their visas on the field for every match, but we never can. Germano, Engelaar, Koren, Brandan, Fornaroli, now O'Halloran...how many others?
  11. 18/19 Prediction Thread

    1. Sydney Victory Newcastle City Adelaide Perth Central Coast Brisbane Western Sydney Wellington 2. Sydney 3. Le Fondre 4. Rudan 5. Warren Joyce indicates that he will not continue as Manager after the season, and Patrick Kisnorbo is appointed to replace him. 6. City's season will be characterised by failures in front of goal, inexplicable substitutions - or lack of them, and rarely or never getting all five visa players on the park at once. We will drop too many points to challenge for the Premiership and we will be eliminated in the Championship Semi-Finals as usual. 7a. My predictions will not be correct. 7b. If I'm still alive I will renew my membership for next season regardless.
  12. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    Well spotted. Most of us had forgotten what he looks like...
  13. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    That's the best still I could get out of the clip. That's De Laet bottom left. Can anyone make out any of the others? On the Facebook page I can see Brattan and nos 17 and 8 ( Caceres and McGree).
  14. Melbourne City FC pre season 2018

    It would be hard to be less informative.
  15. Player injuries

    Let's see who appears and who doesn't for this supposed friendly at CFA today. Particular interests O'Halloran and La Rocca.
