Thanks for that forbze.

People have asked for a thread on this before so I've split it off and pinned it.

Whenever soemone new signs, post it up here with the contract length so we can keep the list current.

I'm presuming they are not the squad jersey numbers, just counting how many players we have. But missed 7 & 14.

It’s the leaving blank of the 7 ad 14 free that has thrown me...

(Esp as these players have departed)

Baby to Nine: Well this make complete sense.

Germano to Eight: CM makes sense.

Aziz to Eleven: Well he probably will play as LW more so this even makes sense.

Duga to Seventeen: Does anyone know if he has preferred this number elsewhere in the past?

(It was was Hoffman's number)

And Hoff to 12: Was this number not retired?

Anyway they probably are not squad numbers - but I am bored so whatever...

Dugandzic's contract is up at end of season. I have a feeling he will go to Europe on a free instead of renewing

Yes, it certainly was. It's now the 'fans number' - even required special permission from the FFA. It was the 'announcement that was bigger than the signing of Harry Kewell' according to Scott Munn. Wonder what he's on sometimes.

Yeah. Remember the number 12 tops that said yarraside. The ones that were unveiled before 95% of the yarraside had rocked up to the match? It was all over the news lol!!

Can we give the number back?

We could offer it as an honour to a player of our choice, perhaps a new signing?

EDIT: And I dont mean fucken flag stealing Roffman.

maybe the supporters should have a vote on which player wears the number 12?

But why would anyone want to wear number 12?

If he was still with us how would you phrase the sentence?

What you were looking for is "would of been"

No.

For a start:

'of' is a preposition.

'have' is a verb.

'Would of' is a false construction of the utterance 'would have'. This grammatical interchange when penned stems from the contraction "would've" when verbally articulated due to aural confusion of the suffix. The 've' in "Would've", in most native English speaking accents lends itself to a phonetic cognate with 'of' hence why the utterance it is often confused when articulated in the written form.

In short, people think they are hearing 'would of' when they are really hearing "would've" thus they write would of.

Here's all the contract details for the players who are still at the club - or we are unsure about.

3 Brendan Hamill (End of 2012/2013)

9 Eli Babalj (End of 2012/2013)

11 Aziz Behich (End of 2012/2013)

13 Curtis Good (End of 2012/2013)

17 Mate Dugandžić (End of 2012/2013)

The signing of the above on contract extensions is of paramount importance imo.

With Fred and Simon being gone that will cover the inevitable, though warranted pay raise they will all demand.

Be sickening to lose possibly 3 blue chips and a couple of speccys for nothing, could really make or break the joint.

THE GRACEFUL ONE, NEEDS A NEW CONTRACT.

Probably waiting to see what happens with regards to Grella

TBH I dont want Grella and its not because I dont like him as a guy or respect him a lot as a player.

I am sick of living day by day, minute by minute hoping that Fred has not broken down throughout the Season and I cant help but feel it will be the exact same situation with Grella.

Would prefer to have the second striker (As in the Greek chap) - As lets face it if Eli was having a bad day we had no real other option to play CF.

If Charisteas came, I highly doubt he'd be our second in line.

Agreed on Grella though.

I know right, we should've kept Maycon :(

Err.. yeh, the numbers aren't shirt numbers - I just copied and pasted from the wiki!

Can you either give them the correct numbers or get rid of them all together then?
