  1. John Masiano is the rumour going around, which would be absolutely bananas if so.
  2. My goodness we've got some soft send offs this year.
  3. We really should be letting Tilio beat Hoffman all day.
  4. Very pleased with the Tom Glover redemption arc.
  5. Marco if that was onside what on earth was that finish.
  6. Couldn't disagree with you anymore on Van Der Venne - to my mind O'Neill and Berisha were absolute sieves in the middle of the park in the second half. If Talbot puts that one away I think we're home and dry, but we really should have been able to weather that second half better.
  7. Got mine this morning, very nice looking pack if you're into those kind of things.
  8. We really could use some central defenders back, although in saying this, Bos would be very unlucky to be dropped after another solid game and for Jamo to be moved back to his spot.
  9. If we bomb the ball long to Macca again against this tall cunt I swear to God.
  10. Fishlock once again winning games in extra time. Just outstanding.
  11. There are several parts of the NSL that I enjoyed a lot in the few years I followed it - but this stuff is in no way surprising and is in no way an isolated incident.
  12. Absolutely - horrible phrasing from myself there, I believe the implication was that from the information that they had was that the fact that they qualified for the next Asian Champions League wouldn't matter and that only the teams who qualified from this year would be entered into the next Champions League
  13. Just back from the pub and a chat with PK and a few others, stuff of note: Lam will be a central defender, Berisha will be an 8 (presumably Metcalfes spot), fairly decent commentary from both PK and Jamo on most of the slightly tricky questions, a few of the more notable answers being that there isn't a plan B and that Pep has been playing with a Plan A and nothing else for 15 years, however we might see some variation, but unlikely to be in round 1. The only answer I didn't particularly like was the one to the fact that we consistently failed to get results against WU. Also apparently the Asian Champions League is cancelled for this year, so out of three qualifying times we'll get one campaign, which seems rather nonsensical.
  14. I think the way he plays is very telling, as well as the players he leaves out - the Australian team isn't the best it's ever been, but there are plenty of more exciting players that could be chosen nearly across the park. The left side is better because Azizi bombs on at every occasion, given we play a double-ish pivot of Mooy and Irvine it seems wild to me that we don't try to do the same on the right with Atkinson.
  15. Moondib Adus might have moved to the Jets, which I will personally be filthy about if it's happened.
  16. Would be a ripping signing if we could get him.
  17. There is! NPL3 will probably vary in quality over the next few years as there a few teams which should be in there (Beaumaris, Mornington, Essendon Royals and George Cross) that will get there in the next few years and a few teams which probably shouldn't be there (Whittlesea and Ballarat) - whereas NPL2 is probably a bit more settled in terms of the teams that are in there (with the exception of the Goulburn Valley Suns, which are a well intentioned team, but my god do they finish last a lot)
  18. Big oof watching the game last night. It is absolutely bonkers to me that we came out with that formation with those players. Leckie and Florin are both excellent players, but playing them on top of each other led to exactly the level of coherence that was always going to happen.
  19. We also have an absolute glut of good youth players in that position.
