  1. I'm hoping we'll feel better when Jacobsen and Colazo settle in and Franjic gets fit. Then we might have something approximating to a decent defence. Meanwhile...
  2. Watching the Manchester derby last night I wondered whether he would really be out of place in the City midfield. Given his performances so far this season I'd imagine he'll be playing for someone in the Premiership next season?
  3. Has there been any news on the ticketing arrangements for the Jets game in Ballarat next weekend? Is it free for members, pay on the day or what?
  4. Makes sense. We'd have an excellent front three to start with Kamau, Bruno and Fitzy. Great ace to have up our sleeve to be able to throw Tim on for the last 20. Oppo will fear that, because they know he can make something happen, especially in a tight away match where the home side have parked the bus.
  5. You'll have to go into the blue areas, unless demand is such that other areas of the ground are opened. The white areas will be closed. You can go anywhere you can find seats in the blue areas, but there are no seat reservations.
  6. One hell of a signing for us. And I guess the chance to get to Man City if you prove to be good enough is quite an incentive. Also let's not forget that Melbourne is a cracking city to be offered as a posting, and that's got to play a part too.
  7. We've been led to believe that CFG are very serious indeed. If they land this one it really will be a statement of intent. We may still win every match 5-3 but it's going to be a hell of a ride.
  8. Be interesting to see how the various categories of membership break down as the season progresses. FWIW we've really appreciated the three match deals over the past two or three seasons, as it has allowed us to make some commitment when full membership seemed too much to commit to. By last season we were up to two three match passes a season, plus other matches, and full membership became a no brainer. It didn't cost much more, and we'd increasingly found we wanted to be there for every match. So as a marketing tool, the three match passes are a brilliant idea, and a great way for engaging people gradually.
  9. Because it's three days before the cup tie and we need the practice?
  10. On paper looks the goods. Strong record at a decent level, not too old, left footed, known to TS. Exactly what we need. But still a marquee slot left?
  11. I'm glad someone else's phone suffers this weird ghost quoting thing... Love this whole post, but you forgot to tell the OP (to whom also welcome as a fellow escapee from the old country) about the uniquely Australian experience of the beer shower if we score in the first ten minutes before everyone has finished supping their ale.
  12. It's a grower. Wasn't at all convinced at first, but the more I live with it, the more I'm at least getting used to it. Maybe I'll eventually like it. At least its red and white...
  13. It's really noticeable how much the soccer news nationally is now all Cahill and City. Whatever his impact on the pitch, the buzz this has created off the pitch is phenomenal. He's probably the only player who could have done this, to put soccer and City on the front pages and in the news bulletins.
  14. Poor sad bastard. That really is the arse end of nowhere.
  15. At least it looks like Bruno and Bruce are forming a useful understanding.
  16. And the question is, which of these would we have back in a heartbeat, given the opportunity? Not out of sentiment but because they would improve the squad? And Mooy is a given. I'd certainly look at Velaphi and Behich. Who else?
  17. Just sign us a couple of competent defenders and all will be good. Then we'll have strength in depth everywhere, competition for places, a good spine of strong, committed professionals, and a squad which all told ought to be good enough to win the league this time around.
  18. Smells like some sort of success to me. Nearly bigger than the big blue. Still the noisy neighbours and wanderers to catch...
  19. When I was in grade 11, it was 1983. I'm not sure I can remember back that far. Well it'll be good for the club to have a coach. I gather the assembled wisdom was that we needed one.
  20. Yes, I think I got that bit. It was the reference to the omnivorous quadruped that threw me, m'lud.
  21. Thank you. The older I get, the more I feel like the elderly judge who had to be told who and what the Beatles were...
  22. I think it must be my age. I have to accept there are posts on here I just don't understand...
  23. In many ways a shame that a club that has been so strong is in such a mess. No fun winning a league without competition. Is there a link to these membership numbers, as I'm geeky enough to be fascinated by how our numbers compare with other clubs?
