  1. All games today were 2-2; great results for us really. Win tomorrow puts us 7 points clear with a game in hand.
  2. FMD that's quality from Vander Venne
  3. Excellent 45, just couldn't find the back of the net
  4. 550k in fines does hurt - particularly as they are apparently 6.7 mil in the red, plus (unless i have misread something else) no active bays and restrictions on ticket sales for the rest of the season. tbh, i do think they could and should have gone harder. as per my previous posts regarding what i perceive as an overreaction towards our general active bay members, i can see a situation here where the APL is trying not to punish the general Victory member and fan (just to be clear, not stating that i agree with the APL approach as they should have gone harder) when i first heard and read about, i was the same about the lack of loss of points (and still am). i still cant believe they are replaying the game. only thing i can think (again not that i necessarily agree) is that much in the way points deductions means the Victory season is over. they are on 10 points with 15.5 games to play. any points deduction virtually kills them making finals. which is bullshit logic but it is APL we are talking about - chance to get a "big" team into finals and of course they will go for it.
  5. happy enough with the general sanctions, but restarting the game from the 20th minute (or there abouts) is a fucking disgrace. storming the ground, assaulting players / match officials / camera staff, causing the game to be abandoned ; what the fuck else has to be done to forfeit a game. total bullshit. btw - we were set to play the nomads on the 22nd April as a home away from home game. do they get financial compensated due to the reschedule? again total bullshit edit: might have misread the date with all the 22s running around. has the date been announced? my bad if so.
  6. Never said he hadn't been overseas, rather he has as a good an opportunity to become a regular Socceroo as opposed to at an overseas club
  7. just looked up his wiki and didnt realise he is 24. thought he was younger. the guy's been immense for us. would love for him to stay one or two more seasons before going overseas; we have the contacts so there are plenty of options to go abroad at the right time and extra time here certainly would help a push for a Socceroos role.
  8. agreed. given our current form and league position, i feel its a tough one regarding youth players that are part of the extended squad. we are obviously in a massively good position to win three straight titles (which would be an aleague first), so you want your best playing. we have everything to play for - unlike some clubs were you can give the younger ones more match experience (particularly towards the end of the season) where there is less to play for. so for me, i am very reserved about giving them game time for game times sake. these players have to force their way through - show they really are up for it. take Bos; its taken him a season and a half to force his way in (against the club captain too). by doing so, he has shown that he isnt just flash in the pan player - instead he value adds so much ........ but you are right in that you want these players coming through. that means they are given match time throughout the campaign. you look back at when we won the granny, it came off the back off three young players up front (Tilio, Colacovski, Atkinson) that the club back in so when when the Socceroos came knocking, we had three younger players ready to go.
  9. Couldn't agree more about the Mariners and WSW. Even then we've built such a healthy lead it's on them to chase us down. Easier said than done - just think back to the end of last season. we had a great lead going into the last two games because we had to play so many games before ACL duties. Scum and Geelong were constantly under pressure to make up the difference.
  10. 2. Tilio 1. JMac Was tempted to go either Leckie or Lecroix for the one. Overall I think Tilio is absolutely crystal for MOTM last night. Was head and shoulders above the rest
  11. thanks chief. more that there was potential, but hey relative maths since i did say at least 5 points clear ...
  12. i think Nabbout might disagree ... tbf, the heat has been out of the game since 3-0
  13. yeez that was poor marking. lucky prijovic went wide
  14. so so so bloody true 😁 wowzers, 3-0
  15. hahahahaha fucking Leo Lecrioux. we should build him a statue at Casey
  16. If the APL has any integrity and balls at all, they will call the game for us. Complete and utter disgrace otherwise.
  17. the Glory just beat WSW 1-0; a win against the nomads sends us at least 5 points clear with a game (the abandoned derby) in hand.

  19. tbf only 20 min was played. how can it count against macca (agreed that it sucks for o'neill). maybe when we get the 3-0, o'neill is allowed to keep his?
