  1. On some of the club's social media channels. Here's one https://fb.watch/jMO8oVNFH-/ Would love a weekly round-up of academy results too and the occasional player profile. Will mention it next time I get selected for a member survey
  2. Some really great team play as well. Seeing this kind of content from our (recently?) expanded academy has been awesome. Feels more like a club and less like just an a-league team.
  3. 2. O'neil - carrying our attack atm 1. Good - was immense
  4. I think he could do with another season or two here. From my pov, he's physically weak, inconsistent, and often lacks the final ball. Can't help but think Europe will chew him up and spit him out if he leaves at end of season.
  5. No confidence going into this after yesterday. I'd take a draw at this point.
  6. Haven't been that frustrated watching City in a long time. Thought active did a great job for their small numbers
  7. I hope so too. After 3+ years at the top, our active are still obsessed with the opposition and overly negative chants. Makes you wonder whether they actually support the team or if it's just a chest beating exercise. It's not hard to see that other parts of the crowd generally become more involved when chants are positive and simple. If active are genuine about creating an atmosphere, they would lean into this. We won't ever have many fans who are interested in the same brand of active support as MV/WSW (at least I hope not). Why bother trying to emulate them? ^ this is generally A-league wide. Active support groups have delusions of grandeur.
  8. Des Buckingham and Mumbai City are top after 16 games undefeated in India. Seems likely he will be our manager next season, unless he is promoted to a CFG club above us.
  9. Mariners have been great to watch. They've got something special at the moment
  10. I agree that he's a good a-league manager; the nix is a tough gig imo. He is a pork-chop on the sidelines though, and that seems to be a red-flag for a number of posters here. I'm interested to see how Papas goes at the Jets this year. When they were on last season it was a joy to watch.
  11. Pure fantasy some of the stuff written here. On a football forum you expect some armchair tacticians, but now we have body-language experts and psychologists. As for Ufuk, the bloke is just as bad as PK if not worse on the sidelines.
  12. Yes, sorry for the confusion. What I meant was, "if we were to have a home kit like this, I would buy it".
  13. Love the thread, great idea @Jovan. Got a positive story to add. Got a call from Ryan on the Friday before the Wellington game. Said the club wanted to thank my partner and I for attending all home games this season and being long term members, and offered us an 'ultimate matchday experience'. We were chauffeured to and from AAMI, got free jerseys, had a stadium tour, and had seats behind Wellingtons bench (not the best view, but being pitch-side was cool). On the pitch up close for the trophy lifting too. Truly amazing. There's a video on social media if you want to watch us try, and fail, to act naturally with a camera following you the entire time.
  14. Centre-aligned badge & puma is a little weird for me. The red and white on the neck and cuffs however, perfection. Haven't liked a home kit since we became city, but would definitely buy this one if it were to be our jersey next season.
