We know your views on various players Strider, but some of your posts are close to or are downright abusive. Both Fornaroli and Cahill struggled to impress in a misfiring City attack. Many doubted that they could be effective playing together, and the outcome of the season suggests that the doubters may have been right.

Public warning to moderate language.

I know, and I'm itching to pull the trigger on him.

If I was a mod that would have been instant ban city for crude racism.  Think jw is being more than lenient.

Calling out racism that would have made a Hansonite blush in the nineties does not make us wowsers.  Spouting it is not cool.

Fornaroli set for ankle surgery

Melbourne City have confirmed star striker Bruno Fornaroli has fractured his ankle and will need surgery in a significant blow ahead of the 2017/18 A-League season.

The 2015/16 A-League Golden Boot winner had to be replaced late in the first half of City's 3-2 FFA Cup win over Hakoah Sydney City on Tuesday night after a heavy tackle.

Fornaroli left the venue in a taxi for X-rays which have revealed bad news for the title hopefuls which threaten his availability for the start of the new season which commences in October.

In a club statement, City confirmed Fornaroli had suffered a fracture to his right ankle.

Fornaroli will undergo surgery in the coming days, although the club declined to disclose an estimated period of absence.

The Uruguayan has scored 49 goals in 66 appearances for City in all competitions since joining in 2015.

We're fooked. Can't see Cahill matching his scoring rate. Either we have a fucking good defense and win 1-0 or other players step up but other then Fitzy maybe Mauk and Budzik I cant think of anyone else.

Take out the penalities and he did last season. 

 

Anyway yes its crap but no other Aleague team could have old mate Cahill come into the starting 11

Cruel luck haunts this club. At this minute, Schenkeveld is the only one of our four visa players who could take the field for us.

According to Davutovic, the recovery time is 8-12 weeks. 

Best case is he misses the first few rounds. 

Worst case is he returns pre-Christmas derby.

Unfortunately, we've been in that position more seasons than we haven't.

It will probably be a loan player most likely, who would take a 4 month contract? Anyway Aguero is out of favour with pep.

Sad news. Surely with Cahill and one of Arzani, Crowley, Brandan and Fitzy by his side we are still formidable. A slight tweek in structure and we will be fine. Come on Wazza.

It takes 6-8 weeks for the bones to heal fully. Add likely ligament damage, getting fit again, and strength and conditioning. I think 12 weeks would be the minimum. Takes us to the start of December

My first prediction was 2 to 3 Germanos but now I think we are looking at bare minimum 1 Engelaar. 

Not good.

Didn't some one say that he will be out for 6-8 weeks but in this report, it says he will be out until January?

Well that's initially based on just the ankle fracture, I won't be surprised if there's ligament damage too.

@jw1739 - the guy already got a yellow card for it so it was picked up by the ref, usually they can't overrule this into a red or suspension.

I realise that. However, IMO in cases like this - and I'm sure that there would be others - where serious injury results, then the rules should allow a review of the punishment. We've lost our marquee striker, from a crude and illegal tackle from a player in a pub team, and there's no sanction? That's bloody crazy.
