  1. TTDIM: Cold change at the end of a hot day. Love that smell of rain
  2. It’s frustrating knowing that this is an inevitability but also knowing that it isn’t going to happen any time soon. Paddy has the runs on the board in terms of trophies, despite the obvious issues, so sacking a coach who’s won two straight premierships and a championship is not exactly going to be an easy thing for the club to do
  3. Certainly not making excuses, as that performance was insipid at best, but why is it that we always seem to draw A-League opposition from the round of 16 onwards? Either way, quite concerning. Hopefully VDV and Lam can come in and provide some better structure and balance in the midfield from the get go, as we looked all over the place in the middle last night.
  4. Hopefully we come out with a decent attacking mindset tonight. Surely this fixture last season will be a key part of the behind the scenes talking points
  5. I think it’s borderline impossible to have a decent backup striker in the A-League tbh. With squad size and cap space being so limited, why would you pay a bloke decent money to play maybe once or twice a season? Alternatively, why would any decent striker sit on a bench for 99% of the season for peanuts? That’s why backup strikers across the league are all kids or has-beens. We are in the incredibly fortunate position where unlike most teams in this league we have multiple other players who could easily fill that role should they be required. Nabbout, Leckie and at a stretch Tillio have all got what it takes to lead the line. Getting in any decent backup for JMac would be a waste of cap space imo.
  6. Looks to be the exact kind of player we should be targeting. Still a good age, has played a lot of football at a high level, versatile. Here’s hoping he comes down here and meets expectations. We’ve developed a pretty decent visa midfield now
  7. Reis was pretty good, but his marking of Ivanovic cost us a goal.
  8. Fire the fuck up everyone! Title defence starts tonight. 3-0, Jmac double and a Tilio sealer. Can't wait for some AAMI Park chicken and chips!
  9. Not sure if it’s due to the protests, but the antivaxxers are definitely not helping. An antivax bloke who I work with was told he was a tier 1 close contact earlier this week and he’s refusing to get tested or isolate. So he could be positive just walking around in the community. Really bloody frustrating.
  10. Can you blame people for struggling to see that being realistic though? The goalposts have shifted time and time again throughout the past 18 months, and even then once we meet the national plan’s goal for re-opening, we don’t go back to normal. We aim to hit the targets and maybe we’ll hopefully potentially get the privilege of being allowed 30 people over on Christmas Day. Believe me, I understand the importance of vaccines, I wish everyone would just go and get vaccinated, but I also know that isn’t realistic, and when you spend months telling people that the vaccine is safe, then it isn’t, then it is but only for people over 60, and then over 50, and then suddenly everyone again, you’re going to get people who are scared, especially when you start forcing people to take it.
  11. This is the part that is absolutely killing me. I can’t go and visit my parents a couple of suburbs away or go to the pub, but it’ll be okay for anyone who wants to to come visit from Europe in a month’s time? What a load of utter shit. The vaccine mandate for authorised workers is terrible as well. Get vaccinated or you can’t feed your kids. I am pro-vaccine, I’m fully vaccinated and have been for months, pretty much the second I was eligible, but I absolutely understand why people are hesitant. Telling people they have to do something is just going to drive them into their positions much more deeply. The stick only works for so long, and after the longest lockdown on the planet, you’re going to need to bring out the carrot eventually.
  12. That sash is absolutely gorgeous. The away kit is amazing too. Shame about the sleeves on the home kit
  13. I’m still quite proud of it myself, glad it’s still having an impact haha
  14. This is kind of the big thing. Once we hit the 80% double vaxxed mark it will be hard to justify an ongoing state of emergency, and the vaccine passports will be pretty difficult to implement. We’re already seeing the ideas of vaccine passports struggling to get support in many countries overseas. I don’t think they will be able to last very long down here. Best advice is to go and get vaccinated if you haven’t already so you give yourself the best chance of protection you can, as not everyone is going to end up doing it.
  15. For me Jamo’s penalty in the Grand Final is my absolute favourite moment in the club’s history. For years we complained on here about the lack of leadership and balls from the club in the Heart days and the earlier days of City. To watch our captain march over, claim the ball and bury the pen with so much confidence and celebrate it with so much passion exemplified everything that the new City stands for. I remember just knowing in that moment that nobody was stopping us that night.
  16. Great to see my content getting some solid traction
  17. This isn’t an unpopular opinion, this is an unpopular fact. They even said after the curfew ended in 2020 that it had no health reasons, it simply made it easier for police to maintain compliance.
  18. Unfortunately the rise of the internet has led to the rise of dangerous misinformation. People once took doctors at their word because they were the experts, now people believe that 15 minutes on Google, a YouTube video and a whole lot of confirmation bias is equivalent to a medical degree and a lifetime of scientific research.
  19. As somebody in their mid-twenties, it is absolutely not just the boomers holding out. I’m fully vaccinated, but I know so many people my age who either “don’t trust it” or are “waiting for the Pfizer”. I think that if you’re young, healthy and have a stable income, lockdown makes a lot of young people feel very safe from the virus and happy to avoid facing the reality of it all. If we were to give some kind of plan of how we move out of restrictions and rejoin the rest of the world, it will probably give a lot of people the kick up the arse they need to actually go get it imo.
  20. Outside of signing for the Victory, I’d be extremely disappointed if any of our Championship team are ever booed under any circumstances tbh
  21. One of the most underrated players we’ve ever had. One of the club’s all time best, thanks for everything Nooney
  22. Definitely some that have featured in here before, but a Twitter thread full of some absolute banger football grounds around the world https://twitter.com/joaquimcampa/status/1411346406497992708?s=21
  23. After his goal in the first derby I was a bit worried about the Cola hype. I was nervous that we as fans would be so happy to have one of our own coming through the ranks we would be very forgiving of him, and for a while after the derby he looked a touch off and didn’t seem to be quite up to scratch. But the last few weeks of the season he stood up and showed he is genuinely a brilliant player. Incredibly impressed by him
  24. Huge day. The biggest day. Absolutely shitting myself, but also incredibly grateful that we all get to be there today. The plate winning night was truly something special, so tonight is almost a free hit imo. If we lose, it will obviously hurt but considering how compromised we’ve been these finals it will still be a great achievement. however, I truly hope we come out there and absolutely belt them. 8-0 win, Colacovski double hattrick inbound. Have fun today ladies and gents 🍻
