  1. Briefly liked Central Coast until I saw some of the comments from their fans today. No solidarity at all over this APL decision. I really hope we smash the bastards.
  2. Mariners fans will turn out in numbers to save APL's face. Only outcome really is to bias GF strongly towards a NSW team and disadvantage City.
  3. I think it is to allow us all to make our travel plans...
  4. Yes, it looked to be that sort of size.
  5. Amongst my group I'm seeing a lot of occasionals and once a year attendees choosing to come to this one. Suspect we'll have lost some hard core regulars for this one, but there will be a fair number of more casual adherents instead.
  6. It seems pretty much in line with pricing for finals matches in previous years. And a one off City Blue ticket is well into the mid $30s. So it's not that much of a mark up from regular season matches.
  7. I always was. This part of the finals is unchanged so I see no reason to boycott. I accept others think differently.
  8. What the hell did Glover have for breakfast?
  9. Glover is having one of those matches where he is alternately awful and brilliant. Watching from behind the sofa...
  10. No idea why that was pulled up. What a waste. Should have the VAR crew for bringing the game into disrepute.
  11. Can't believe there's no thread. Anyway, O'Neill is out. Leckie starts. Berenguer, VdV and Berisha in midfield.
  12. I'd heard somewhere that Rafa had already signed somewhere else for next season. But we don't know who else is staying or leaving so a fair bit of this is going to be premature I guess. Tilio I suspect is gone, don't know about Nabbout, for example. We're going to get a few curveballs, but hopefully we'll have a while to wait yet because we have a final to play...
  13. No away goals. Don't know whether there's extra time before penalties.
  14. You could do as a lot of us do, and get tickets in City Blue adjacent to the Active, so that we're close to the atmosphere, but not in the mosh pit. Plenty of older fans (like my gang), mixed groups and families in these areas, so you'll be comfortable, but involved and able to join in with chants if you want. GA is fine but you're at the other end of the ground from active.
  15. https://www.ftbl.com.au/news/melbourne-city-trump-wanderers-to-snatch-wonder-winger-594276?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=insidesport_autopost He's been one of the exciting finds of this season, so this is good news if true.
  16. Looks like both matches will be on free to air TV, on 10 Bold.
  17. If you want some hope for the future going into the close season, we had a 15 year old debut as a sub two thirds of the way through our weekend NPL2 tie. We were 2-0 down at the time. We won 3-2. Young lad scored a hatrick. The future looks good.
  18. It's Sydney. Again. And if Sydney manage to luck themselves into a final, after a crap season, with the tie played in Sydney because of a dodgy deal, it will further undermine the credibility of the finals, the APL and the A League. Just hope we can knock them out.
  19. They are both tarnished by playing for the Tards and neither are good enough for us. I certainly wouldn't have the mercenary turncoat Brillante back under any circumstances.
  20. They're force feeding him. He'll soon be foie gras.
  21. Bos is almost a generational find. But we always worry about the loss of the tangible talent, until the intangible prospects become reality. We've recruited increasingly well in the last few years and on this at least I trust the club. Let's see what the closed season brings us.
  22. Same everywhere though. The qualification takes place in the season preceding the competition. Squad change is inevitable.
  23. We're going to have a bigger than ideal turnover before next season. Several of our best moving on, others likely to be moved on or retire. This with ACL on the horizon means we're both going to need to bring through a number of the best youngsters, and make some key signings. Midfield and defence are both likely to need attention.
