    Interesting one, Ruon Tongyik been released by CCM and has up to 3 clubs reported chasing him. 

    I wouldn't be against having him back, he was amazing in the 20/21 season, could serve as genuine competition for Nuno and Good, and give us an option of playing 3 CB if needed (I know it's unlikely) 

    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.

    I’d expect city to steer clear with rumours of off field troubles 

    remember hearing something about that - enjoys a bit too much of nightclub hoping IIRC

    There's strong murmurs that he's going to Perth... 

    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.

    Confirmed, gone.


    direct from club's webpage.

    fucking sucks.  always loved watching him play. very bitter sweat - hopefully it means he has another aleague side lined up where he'll actually get to do more than warm the bench / have a coach willing to make subs

    Is that why Bay 16 and 18 are not on sale yet? They are the tickets I wanted, had to deal with Bay 14 to accommodate the 5 of us

    i had the same problem, had to book bay 14 since 16 wasnt available, 15 was virtually full and my 6 yo nephew is coming to his second game this season (my sister in law would de-own me and my brother if we took my nephew into the heart of active).

    Wrong questions. 


    Only question should be.


    Whats the PAX at?

    i thought the only important question was what time is the march?

  5. WU up 1-0 after 10.  Adelaide back level after 14 at 1-1.

    should WU get up, if we don't win tomorrow then that's a 3rd place finish.  given where we stood before the Glory game, a 3rd place finish would be bitterly disappointing.

    dont know if i have ever cheered so hard for Adelaide

    Toper Stanley injured too - looks like a hammy.

    CBF checking but our home record has been very good.  The loss to the tards was away for the record. 

    So I think because of that, and because I'll be going the only possible result will be a win.

    we've picked up 22 points from 12 games (6 wins fwiw)

    they have 13 points from 12 away games (4 wins).

    take that how you like

    Take the loss and move on. The Plate is not out of reach yet, WU will run out of legs, and Victory will come close but they will have to go on a decent winning streak with big scores. 

    It's a derby, Heart would be on a losing streak beat Victory and then go back to losing. 

    i think you are completely right TBH regarding the derby.  the team lower on the table has always risen for the game as a way of proving itself.  as poor as we were (particularly in the first half), you could say the same as them (again, particularly in the first half).  we won two games by 13-0 and should have won the third last season.  they have had something to prove.

    Am I the only one who has just watched that replay again and thought that Glover got there first and was then clattered? Blame for the first goal for me is with the short backpass from Jamieson.

    It's hard to be constructive or find any positives after that shit performance but I'll try at least not be too negative. 

    That was hand's down our worst performance all season. 

    Both first goals were goal keeping errors. I don't know why Glover hesitated when Jamo passed the ball back to him (i actually thought Jamo would just clear it out for a victory throw so he's certainly a part to blame). 



    second goal was absolutely Glover's fault; should have caught and left himself at the mercy of the Gods by coming so far off his line only to punch.

    blaming him for the first is way too harsh.  Jamo gave him a hospital pass - he was fucked either way given the quality of their forward line.  Come off your line and risk a pen, stay on your line you give them control with yourself stranded / teammates flat footed thanks to Jamos fuck up.

    Playing against Geria and Davidson on the flanks is very different proposition to O'Toole and other bloke from Sydney. The league is so uneven in the term of quality. 

    PK huge mistake is that after being outplayed twice,  he still lined up without proper DM in position. 

    in other words, we play them twice without winning and PK fails to learn anything / deviate from plan.  surprise fucking surprise.

    it's great when the plan is working.  the problem in football (as in life) is that you can't still long term / afford to develop a comfort zone.  other teams change their style and you have to know when and where to adjust

    That's the best perspective. The worst is that if WU and Victory win all their remaining games (not sure if they have to play each other?) and we fail in our last two then we finish third and empty handed.

    Can't see that WU and Victory play each other again. Unfortunately looks like both teams' remaining games are mostly against teams in the bottom six. 

    sadly the two teams from Geelong don't play each other again during the regular season. 

    we are certainly vulnerable im the race to the plate, but then again so is everyone else.  WU have been very poor recently, and I can't see them winning all of their last 5.  the other mob have three possible banana skins in the smurfs, Macarthur and the Nix (and the Nix is the only home game there).

    the other thing that plays into our hands IMO is the form line of many aleague teams has been very up and down.  we give the smurfs a canning only to lose last night (and to be frank, our first 45 was by far worst 45 all season).  the smurfs beat the Mariners 5-0 last night after the midweek game against us.  you could go on and on about the last two months alone.  the fact we only have two regular season games left could be a blessing.
