  1. 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.
  2. https://ccmariners.com.au/news/six-players-depart-mariners-ranks?fbclid=IwAR3koOaYcjtg2i_tsIhdgdtQ230ODZcvk0piJecZDUDWa7A5eoMrO3Rz_so Ruon Tongyik and Ollie Bozanic have both been released by CCM. given Tongyik has played for the Socceroos in the last 12-18 months, it seems a bit odd. maybe got a better offer elsewhere?
  3. https://melbournecityfc.com.au/news/stefan-colakovski-departs-melbourne-city-fc-2?fbclid=IwAR3QJZmjBtdtlueIrOe3FKuzRIHGLcp-2nRCsFm0p_-dMeAMF1h3pR87WBQ 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
  4. 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). i thought the only important question was what time is the march?
  5. 4-1 on tv ....... fuck u dogs
  6. geelong just scored, fucking bring it !!!!
  7. just got home and can't wipe the smile off the face !!!! thought we had more than enough chances to have buried them earlier, but it didnt matter if it was 2-1 or 6-0. a win is a win. back to back plates baby 😍
  8. well that is a great result for us. still disappointing if we dont take the league tomorrow. considering everything, frustrating we've dropped points at certain points
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. given our goal difference, either a win or 2 draws gets us the plate. that said, it'd be so good to celebrate the lifting of the trophy pregame Monday. so fucking fire up cunts. oh and no Bruno for them ....
  12. given we are ahead on points, goal difference and play later tonight i just dont think it is as valuable as maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago.
  13. wasnt meaning (and dont want) to. is it just me or does any else not care if Newcastle win or draw - they just need to get a result?
  14. 1-1 thanks to a goal from Elsey. not over yet find it interesting that there are Ukrainian flags on the corner posts.
  15. fucking get in - well done Kuol 😁
  16. thought it was for a ball just over the goal line, but yeah ffs then of course the near miss with the VAR on the Geelong pen. was shitting bricks for a hot minute
  17. i've said this before, plenty of banana peels out there. Brisbane proved that tonight. in so many ways its great we are the ones with the points tucked away.
  18. 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. 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. 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
  19. 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.
  20. our pressure is great, just our final third play is too slow or let down by too many poor first touches
