  1. I don't want him. He's a nasty piece of work with some dubious off field stuff floating around. He'd be poison in the dressing room. I've no wish to watch him or support him.

  2. My interpretation of a journeyman differs. I consider a journeyman more of squad player used to cover a position rather than a genuine starting player. To me it doesn't matter how teams you have played for, its more what the player is actually contributing at a club. A journeyman to me is term to bag a paticular player that he is not good enough to start for a particular team and moves around trying to find a starting spot. To me a journeyman should be by and large avoided and replaced with talent pushing the incumbent senior. Therefore under no circumstances would I ever consider JMAC or Nabbout under my own understanding journeymen.

  6. Nothing wrong with being a feeder club. Currently we are on top, we are developing talented youth and we are winning trophies.

  7. IMO he works much better being slotted in the midfield compared to being put out wide. If we could find him a permanent midfield spot then that would allow for tilio and nabbout to start. He's clearly our best decision maker on our team with the ball as well.

  9. Jeez can really feel for Galloway. I know its been said time and time again but he doesn't do much wrong, scores when given chances and still rides the pine from fullback. In saying that I don't mind what I've seen from Talbot but surely its Galloways time!? I'd be leaving if I were him once his current contract runs out, he's definitely good enough as a starter in the A-league

  10. The best way to ensure that we went through was to do what we did: win. That made other results irrelevant; the French will do whatever they think is in their own best interests in the tournament, as they should be doing

  11. I've changed the title of the thread. Love him or not, he's brought us the results and titles we craved, two derbies that we'll never forget, and deserves more than just the odd mention now and again in "Where are they now?"

  15. Yes there was an article I recall saying the refs have been told to tighten up on both yellows and reds this year. Which surprises me that PK again doesn't use his bench to take off players who are close to a second like Lam two weeks ago and O'Neill this week

  16. Geez that was a satisfying result. Adelaide very good to watch, great press and some standout players. Kitto is very impressive, Goodwin greta, and Ibusuki is pretty complete. Meanwhile at Victory Nani continues to be a flop, their midfield is non existent and amazingly Broxham is still starting at CB.

  17. It shows that in peoples opinion; being the best player on the pitch doesn’t mean you have to score all the goals. I’m fine with that.

  20. Just as a side note, our club will be getting a big pay from FIFA, I had a look at Hearts forum and that's a big topic over there. 3 players seem to pay 600 pounds for getting to the WC and now every day following that win each player gets the club 9.7k pounds, 29k a day. The club will be getting around 1Mil Au by the time we play the Argies, I've not done the math, just a guess.

  22. How much more success do you expect another coach to bring? It seems you have a real personal issue with PK and despite the success we have had you still will never be pleased

  23. The results speak for themselves, and even if I don't like his lack of substitutes, I cannot deny the results.

  24. I get that you didn't like him and probably glad he has moved on, but IMO he has been our best and most successful coach. And thats across all the levels he coached at.

  25. From memory he was average at Brisbane as head coach and got replaced after not many games. Can't see him being long term replacement. I suspect this has been in the works for a while and the replacement has been arranged. CFG always do things methodically and I'm actually optimistic that it's going to be a win win, for both PK and us. Having an interim kind of indicates it's going to be an overseas coach.

  29. Has joined the squad in Qatar - or is on his way - because Martin Boyle is injured. All the best to the lad - hope he get minutes and does well.

  30. You know what, that could work. But I think a fully fit and firing Berenguer is still our best attacking midfielder, we don't really play a traditional #10, but what Leckie and Berenguer give in that role (when in form) is pretty formidable. Then you add Berisha who I think still has more upside to his game. Then at a pinch VDV, but from what I've seen so far he seems better a bit deeper, the more traditional box to box. So that really squeezes Tilio and Nabbout to battle for a wide role and having Leckie on the other. We have a front 6 of true quality, Maclaren, Leckie, Nabbout, Tilio, Berisha, O'Neill, VDV,Berenguer and Gomulka. Thats 9 starting players that all are capable and deserve to start when fit and in form. Add Bos that I think will develop into more of a winger and Lam whom has played as 6. Not to mention our young blokes ready to go. Anyone that says we haven't built a decent squad has got literally no idea.

  33. I think the terms 'best player' and 'most important player' are not necessarily the same things and as Jovan alluded too, sometimes the glue isnt the most obvious part in a machine, but its what holds the rest together. In that sense i think Jamie is definitely underrated on here by some, and whilst he's not the sort of player you look at frequently in terms of votes, he's without a shadow of a doubt one of our most important players in the team.

  34. Tilio, Kuol and Arzani would al be in the conversation as wingers. I think Maclaren is locked in. Arnold has never hesitated to pick him, and he is in outrageous form in a weak field. Striking group is probably out of Duke, Maclaren, Cummings, Taggart with Leckie a left field option as a depth option (has been used there before). I understand peoples frustration with Maclaren, we aren't good enough to not be weakened by a striker that basically doesnt get involved in build up play and thats clearly the reason we have used Duke, for all his faults he has a big presence and can hold the ball up a little. But Maclaren is by a long way our countries best goalscorer and as Mr Mo says "goals are mainly tap-ins, penalties or deflections he knew nothing about" which tbh is exactly what we need?

  35. Well, I think he proved himself yesterday against Perth. He's going to be the "energiser bunny" for us that Luna was.

  37. 100% agree. Just butchers. Any team playing them this season would be lucky to get out of the game without injuries. What a luxury being able to sub a midfielder out and just slot Leckie straight in.

  43. Listening to the Robodebt RC, hearing the senior public servants shitting themselves telling the politicians what they were doing was illegal and therefore not telling them, tells me a lot how the Coalition was running the public service. I suspect that this method was used throughout the public service and so the whole department will need to be re-staffed.

  44. Albanese seems to be handling himself reasonably well internationally. I'm pleased that he and Xi actually met at the G20. Not for long, but at least the ice has been broken and they're talking.

  45. A good win saw heaps of voters (our second most thus far) and an almost universal best player, Tom Glover getting top marks from all but one poster. His tally of 23 is the most votes anyone has gotten, despite round 1 having more votes distributed. Van Der Venne gets his first votes after a second excellent start with 9, while Tilio (3) and as has been pointed out the starring and yet severely under polling Maclaren got just 1. Newcastle Jets Game. 2 votes Tom Glover, 1 vote Richard Van Der Venne Leaderboard after 6 games Leckie and Tilio hold onto their spots at the top but Glover makes his move away from the pack, while VDV gets his name thrown in the ring. 5.5. Mathew Leckie 3.5. Marco Tilio 3. Tom Glover 2. Valon Berisha 1. Jordan Bos 1. Curtis Good 1. Richard Van Der Venne 0.5. Thomas Lam 0.5. Jamie Maclaren
