When it rains it pours! Would be a good pick-up if true.

I rate him.. would he be our Aussie Marquee u think? Or just taking up a normal spot?

Don't think he likes the WSW rotation policy..

Would say enough of him has been seen to suggest he'd be a more than capable part of the squad.. which I agree with.

Just not sure exactly who would have initiated the (potential) signing and all that.

Great player, interesting to think about where he could fit in.

Possible beside Mass, if Engelaar leaves, or behind the striker (which would be ideal) if Kewell leaves.

Unless the big boys at City that were over here the last couple of days earmarked him and met with him whilst in Sydney..

Top signing if true, it seems like the influence of City is making a positive impact already :D. Wouldn't make Aussie marquee but still a solid starting 11 signing.

I´m pretty sure that there´s a list somewhere with players recommended for different positions provided by the CFG scouting network, which yes..is your scouting network really
But there will be loads of rumours as agents "leak" stories about players moving to get a better deal for their client.

Lol. So the current owners haven't appointed a manager, management staff or anything yet and are talking to players already? Something doesn't sound right.

we they had been working on this club deal for months. No doubt once it looked like it was going through they had scouts out and people looking at things already. It hasn't really seemed like an impulse buy for city.

The type of player we've never had. Can pass, shoot, tackle and always looks to receive the ball from the defenders and build the play. Do want

There will be a process in place to deal with approaches from agents, releases and signings etc. during the period before new administrative and football staff are actually on the job. These people are the ultimate professionals. They didn't take immediate ownership of Heart only to stand back and let Munn and Didulica to stuff it all up for them over the next three months.

Got to get players at the right price. We should be telling players we are putting you in the shop window so expect them to play for a reasonable amount. None of this williams on 350,000 bullshit.

Wanderer Aaron Mooy in Heart's sights

 

January 26, 2014

 

Sebastian Hassett

 

Western Sydney Wanderers midfielder Aaron Mooy could become the first big name to join Melbourne Heart's radical transformation next season.

 

The 23-year old has been linked with a move to the club which will undergo the biggest revolution in Australian football when the plans of new owners Manchester City kick into action.

 

While City's billionaire owners can only invest so much in players given the restraints of the salary cap, they are set to go hunting for the league's top talent over the next six months.

 

Mooy has made a name for himself as an elegant ball player with the Wanderers but has found himself in a three-way fight for one of the two defensive midfield positions, alongside Iacopo La Rocca and Mateo Poljak.

 

His preferred position is as an attacking midfielder but as Shinji Ono has been there since the club's first game, Mooy has been a victim of circumstances and wants to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

 

Heart officials refused to comment on the speculation but the Wanderers will be hoping to keep Mooy given Ono's pending departure. The ex-Japanese international has agreed a move to J-League second-division side Consadole Sapporo.

 

Mooy, who has scored two goals in his 36 appearances for the Wanderers, has already been linked with a move to the Newcastle Jets, something that may still eventuate if the Jets can match Heart's offer.

Big difference is now players will want to come to our club.  Under "You Know Who" players would have wanted extra to play under him, train on a cow paddock and bath in a wheelie bin.  Alll changed now.

He is quality. Expect him to be our starting midfielder (probably central/attacking) alongside another player of similar ability.

 

Passes well, has good vision and is, technically speaking, a sound player. He could develop very well in our new system, whatever that may be.

 

It is obvious that we will be signing quality young Australian players, given the few foreign spots available in an A-League roster. I think our new owners implied as much.

Assuming Pellegrini's tactics are the blueprint for the Man City brand of attacking football, the two central midfielders are the anchors around which the various phases of play evolve - they need to be energetic box to box types capable of doing it all, from screening the back line to breaking up opposition attacking play to receiving balls from the defence and starting attacking moves themselves, not to mention supporting attacks started elsewhere and contributing to the scoring mainly from outside the penalty area.  It took out first team midfielders the best part of two or three months to get the hang of the way Pellegrini wanted them to play.

I have had no interest in the City or EPL but I will try and catch a game to check out the tactics City employ. I assume it is beyond the current coaching staff to implement. As Long as Roma aren't playing at the same time of course.

It tends to be based on overloading the opposition's defensive third - fullbacks are important, and it is generally a short passing possession based system pressing the opposition high up the pitch when we don't have the ball.  The formation itself is flexible to a certain degree, so we can play with a lone striker, or a pair, or with an attacking midfielder playing off a striker.

Sounds a lot like Roma's. Though Garcia has Roma Drilled enough that if a team forces them back they can hit them hard on the counter which seems to be why a lot of commentators think Roma is a counter attacking team.

 

This is the sort of football we where promised here from the start btw.
