  1. What a ball by Leckie and finish by Goodwin!!!!
  2. ha, because you know how much PK loves a good sub 😉
  3. completely agree about Glover's performance tonight (and this season), and think the new keeping coach could end up our signing of the season. IMO the performance of both keepers last night was fantastic. it really shits me when people lead with this "we should have won by 2-3 more" when the opposition keeper actually did their job / pulled out some good saves (worthy of goals at the other end). keepers cop so much shite when they have a bad game / let in a howler that they deserve the praise when playing well / are making good saves. so massive credits to Glover (and to that extent Izzo).
  4. thought Glover was great last night. given all the criticism (which has been certainly due in a number of cases), he deserves the recognition for when he plays well. fingers crossed this is the start of something really really positive . backline too was great, given two new additions, a youth product who has played at fb only on occasion / is still developing and our skipper as a CB / out of position. Valon Berisha looks to finally be that number 10 we have craved for; ability to turn a game on a dime with his passing and (IMO more importantly given our system) the ability to arrive in the box late / in a scoring position. for all the VAR talk about our first goal (the own goal) it shouldn't have mattered since Berisha should have buried his shot instead of sending it over the bar. willing to put that down to a bit of rustiness and him adjusting to conditions in Oz.
  5. Justice suck shit Geelong united
  6. Or screenshot the other person's digital membership and text that
  7. I think you're discounting the massive Finnish / Scandinavian population we have here in Melbourne....
  8. Cardiff and Swansea play in the English football league structure and the FA Cup as opposed to something Welsh, Israel and their respective football clubs play in the UEFA competitions (despite sharing land borders with the likes of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon and not another "UEFA" country). What are people upset and/or confused about again? My take on the game being played at Casey is that the club is a tough spot. We are never going to sell out AAMI Park for this particular game on a weekend (never mind a cold shitty Wednesday). That said, how do you please all your members. And despite living 10 minutes from Casey fields, I personally would much rather go somewhere more central in Melbourne to catch up with a few mates pregame.
  9. Bumping the thread for a bitter sweet reason. Griff has signed with our Indian counter parts Mumbai City - our media has just announced it Wish the big man well. Has been immense for us. https://melbournecityfc.com.au/news/rostyn-griffiths-to-depart-city
  10. i give the club credit for backing Glover, he has shown he has the raw talent. my concern is that he has been very up and then very down. it's going to take a lot of work with him to (a) return to the form of past seasons and (b) stay there. with a number of fans on his back thats a lot of pressure for the kid
  11. Paul Izzo just signed for that side in Navy blue
  12. Milos Ninkovic is off to WSW. Gonna have even more spice in the Sydney derby next season
  13. dont know, wasnt listening only watching broadcast. be nice to have a home game
  14. have drawn Newcastle Olympic at home ha just beat me to it !!!!
  15. Ahmad Taleb, a young gk who just left us as a scholarship player, has just joined the navy blue mob - on scholarship. https://melbournevictory.com.au/news/melbourne-victory-signs-eli-adams-and-ahmad-taleb
  16. the whole situation seems bizarre to me. particularly with some of the other yopung keepers moving on in recent seasons. then again we've also seen Redmayne go onto the Socceroos and Bouzanis just sign for Reading in the English Championship. maybe our club needs to show balls and back a 26ish yo keeper in with decent coaching support.
  17. finally a playground that actually is fun for all ages 😉
  18. From a playground in Canada, erected in 2021
  19. Jenkinson, Endoh and Lesiotos all released today
  20. Jenkinson, Endoh and Lesiotos all released today
  21. i won't be holding my breath on whatever club until it's confirmed - rumours are like farts in the wind. agree about Zadkovich, which should have everybody worried if Cola does go there ....
  22. a little 50/50 on re-signing the bloke from a footballing point of view. thought he read the game poorly / very inconsistently and wasnt great on the ball either. that said he has received a few caps for the Socceroos in the the last 18 months. as such it surprises me he was released by the Mariners unless (a) there's another club already lined up or (b) that there is something going on behind the seasons. remember hearing something about that - enjoys a bit too much of nightclub hoping IIRC
  23. had heard that. i think the rumour has has been swirling for a good month - maybe why PK has ensured Cola has been frozen out too (doesnt explain earlier in the season but maybe more recent times). either way, i just hope the young lad has a team willing to give him a red hot crack and has a good coach to learn from.
