  1. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Services on the Hurstbridge, Belgrave and Cranbourne train lines are affected. Check https://www.ptv.vic.gov.au/live-travel-updates/
  2. The road to the 2018 WC

    Parachuting a coach into the position for a limited time was never going to be easy.
  3. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    The consolation for not finishing in the top 4 is that you don't feel obliged to pay for another home match this season.
  4. Wazza - In the Departure Lounge?

    Perhaps rephrase that to "Is the Football Department making decisions that look as though they will strengthen the club for the future?" - NO. Also "Have we unearthed any players who could be sold for profit?" The only one I can see is Arzani, and as he is out of contract at the end of the season and if he leaves at that point the answer to that question will also be a NO.
  5. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    Yep. Barring a collapse, Adelaide will be within a point of us tonight.
  6. 2017/18 Matchday Thread

    Have we ever fought for anything outside our one FFA Cup triumph? Adelaide leading Newcastle 1-0.
  7. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Tando out for the rest of the season - ankle injury. https://www.a-league.com.au/news/velaphi-out-rest-season
  8. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Even a few staying 4-5 seasons would be good. The way we change players it's no wonder we're so mediocre.
  9. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    Even if Gulum was classified as Turkish it would be irrelevant as far as the +1 is concerned. Turkey is in UEFA, not the AFC. The full list of AFC member associations is here. http://www.the-afc.com/about-afc_1/memberassociations/ Do we know whether FFA is definitely moving to 4+1 for season 2018-19? It would be helpful in time for clubs to take such a move into account in their recruiting for next season.
  10. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    I think it would be difficult to fill the visa positions with CFG loanees because of the salary cap and "Lampard", but I don't understand why we didn't do that with our second marquee position instead of Budzinski. When I say "I don't understand", bear in mind that FFA has to approve all marquees, and it is of course possible that we tried that, but FFA vetoed it.
  11. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    As long as FFA maintains such a tight grip on the A-League via its various rules I can't see us really benefiting from being part of CFG except for the occasional "super-signing" such as Bruno was (in his first season) and Harry N. (until his off-field antics let him down).

  13. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Melbourne City has selected an unchanged squad for the all-important clash against the Wanderers with Warren Joyce naming the same 18 as last week’s clash with Adelaide. With no injuries or suspensions from the bruising contest at Coopers Stadium, squad continuity will be an important factor for City heading into the pointy end of the season and this week’s clash is an important step towards it. Bruce Kamau and Denis Genreau have been added to the extended side with the squad set to be cut by two 90 minutes before kick-off. Osama Malik remains on the side lines dealing with a quad injury while Iacopo La Rocca and Christian Cavallo have made positive returns from injury and are continuing to work their way into the selection mix. https://www.melbournecityfc.com.au/news/team-news-citys-round-24-squad Melbourne City FC squad: 1.Dean BOUZANIS (gk), 2.Manny MUSCAT, 3.
