the guy in the video is way too pale.

 

uriel antuna is only 1.74.  the guy in the video is tall.

 

uriel antuna will not be wasting his career in australia.

 

i reckon it is someone like aleksander jovanovic.  if they are really tall like the video it will be a central defender. 

 

in case you missed it.

No he is an Australian citizen now.

La Rocca is a good signing for our pissweak defence, well done Wazza.

That I agree on, piss weak.

Decent singing if he didn't cost too much of the cap then.

He certainly suits us! 33 year old journey man with a record of injuries, makes you wonder why Adelaide didn't offer him a contract?

he would be cheap. versatile.  australian. leads the back line well.  was a big part of the wsw asian championship team and the adelaide aus championship..  both teams were immense in defence.

Yep very solid. I like, two experienced CB is always a good start.

Club announcement is interesting. It confirms that our signings so far are La Rocca, Jamieson, Galekovic and that we've re-signed Caceres.

Meaning Brattan is not re-signed so far, although he features in the club's PR.

Probably random Youth player 

A marquee won't wear number 25,  a yoof would wear that number. La Rocca is a thug but at least he'll be our thug. Was hoping for a better CB. He ain't no yoof though

La Rocca is  rough and dirty defender. Typical lower league coach choice. Let's scoop Carrusca now and complete Adelaide takev over. All three of them shown a downward trend in the last season. Not yet enough for making grand final.  La Rocca with probably now chronic injury. Rather see Chapman around.

Would we have enough left in the cap for 2 quality Visa players? I reckon maybe the Marquee is going to be a Visa player despite speculation it will be Troisi

Currently we have

MelbCityJuly15.JPG.29b04ef566c9b6ee08acabf406539b4c.JPG

BENCH: Bouzanis, Cahill, Kamau, La Rocca, Brattan

RES: Tongyik, Arzani, Malik, Muscat, Pererais

Now that is a ridiculously good team if they can make the right final two Visa signings. Some points to add though,

  • Kamau 60min sub for Fitzy (or vice versa)
  • Cahill 75min sub for Fornaroli or CAM
  • I hope Caceras does not get benched for Brattan (form permitting)
  • Currently I rate La Rocca better then Tonyik but the latter has much more potential, would hate to see Tonyik turn into a Retre because a 33 year old La Rocca took his spot.
  • I hope our marquee is a CB (Kolo Toure, Bassong or Xandao please)

All comes down to Wazzas approach to setting up. Be interesting how we set up on Tuesday. If we go 4231. Brattan and Kilkenny are likely to start. 

But with 2 Visa and Marquee available on paper we have a super squad.

Probably true, except for the past 7 seasons with JvS, Aloisi, JvS(2) and Valkanis when "us nongs" have done a pretty fair job...

great post.  it's nice to see that put together without bullshit transfers included (like troisi)

 

-i think if we want a chance to actually win the comp we need to be spending out transfer money on a proper number 10.  we need a nincovik if we want to win this.  

-im also not sold with la rocca as our first choice CB.  i have always liked la rocca.   maybe it''s enough to have malik, la rocca, and tongkyik to fight out for the second spot.  it might push them into quality. but to me they are all midfielders filling in - not proper CB's. so i agree that we need to be looking for another CB for the first team.

You think with Wazzas youth coach background he might actually give a Tongyik a chance over a La Rocca? Even Arzani more of a crack? 

Tongyik is the next (black) Vidic. He'll be a monster this year

Martín Cáceres maybe? Hasn't played much lately though.

Wouldn't be surprised if he plays him as DM as he has shown he can competently make his way through the midfield and screen the CBs which allows Killa a bit more attacking freedom.
