    I take it we have the cap space of Sakhi and Behich to spend now. Does anybody know where their salaries sat, designated, marquee or normal squad allocation?

    Tilio is on European pay, Jeggo might be in the designated bracket. I’ll be surprised if we bring anyone of real quality due to lack cap space. Then I again I don’t know how the departing players were allocated and if we were maxed out already.

    From memory it’s 2 marquee and 2 designated players.

    2 marquees would be Leckie and Maclaren 

    Designated players were Arslan and Sakhi I believe

    That's a real kick in the nads. Thought we'd got a club hero back for the rest of his career, so apart from the loss of one of our very best players, that's a bit of the heart and soul of the club that has just walked out. Also feels like no one really wants to be here, and I worry that things are far from good behind the scenes. Gutted. Season is a car crash.

    Interesting it’s just a loan deal 

  3. Aurelio Vidmar on Jamie Maclaren speculation : 

    Vidmar said that matters of player contracts and incoming players were the realm of director of football Michael Petrillo and football operations manager Pedj Radinovic. 

    “To be frank, the policy within the club is not to discuss any player's contracts and I think that's been here since day one,” he said. “So that's not going to change. Whatever it is within the club, they need to sort it out. 

    “We know the player that Jamie is and he's been a great player for the club. And obviously, we'd love to keep him here. In the end, they've got to decide what's in the best interest of both parties. So that's out of my hands, that's out of my control. Let's see where that goes.”

    Bit of a waste really. A new scarf every season that I never wear because no red on it any more except for the club badge. Keep it for a year and then put it in the bin. All I need is the new membership card, because I can use the lanyard from the previous season. Wonder what the take up would be for a 3-season membership?

    Summer or winter scarf ?

    To be fair to Paddy, I don't think he's world beater coach but he's been completely sold a lemon here.

    The guys taken over a sinking ship and has been expected to orchestrate a miracle and as a coach, he's just not able to do that yet. Yes, he does have deficiencies as a coach, many which have already been spoken about in this thread. However, CFG completely fucked him by sending him to a level of competition he just isn't ready for yet. They could've at least sent him with a mentor but no, CFG be like "all the best mate!" 

    The best path as highlighted by ange and Muscat is to always work your way up through the lower leagues and learn all you can.Then, and only then, you should think about going to the big leagues.

    He did have Mombaerts as technical director

    Do we reckon that Aziz rounds out our signings or are there more to come? And if so, where does everyone feel like we still need to strengthen. If Curtis Good does leave, we'll likely need another CB. I remember a while ago us and Sydney were linked to Sainsbury, but haven't heard a peep out of that in a while.

    I’d say we will sign 2 more players that being a Berisha replacement and maybe a back up CB. Still have 2 visa spots vacant

    Judging by the $12m we're supposed to have spent on just one (but oversize) playing surface at Bundoora looks like there's a fair bit of dosh still to be spent.

    We have spent over 40m on the facility and that’s one of the last stage is the 4K mini stadium pitch
