  1. Question regarding today'derby game. As a member with a reserved seat, do I need to do any special reservations or anything, or do I just rock up at the gate with my membership card as usual?
  2. Anybody care to conjecture why the APL would make such a rule change?
  3. Wellington should be top, not Victory due to a secret APL rule change. Football news 2024: A-League changes ladder rule so wins are tiebreaker over goal difference, Wellington Phoenix, Melbourne Victory (foxsports.com.au)
  4. So where goes this leave us now? Are we definitely out or what needs to happen for City to move to the next round?
  5. Why couldn't the game be played at our pitch in Cranbourne East? Its brand new, rectangular and suited to the crowd size.
  6. Agree 100% on the back passing. Why not try a long pass to a player further up field? At least the ball can be contested upfield. Back passing, as has been shown time and time again is lazy play, puts pressure on the backline and is highly risky.
  7. Pleased with the result. However still concerned about Perth's goal. To me it looked like our backline were deliberately playing the ball back and forth in the backline in order to give Perth an opportunity to pounce and score. At the time of Lopane's backpass he would have had Taggart in his peripheral vision so playing the ball slowly back to Young makes no sense. I seriously wonder whether there isn't some corruption involved here. Thoughts?
  8. No. the traditional method is to sack the manager in order to scare the plyers into playing well. but I think we are at the stage where the manager needs to be sacked along with a couple of players. Not good enough. Bring out the guillotine!
  9. Remember that Melbourne City has a 2 week rule for Managers. The new manager has 2 weeks to show that he can make the team play Angeball or else it's time for a new manager. Rado learnt this the hard way.
  10. Hmm Just looking at Vidmar's record with Melbourne City so far. We haven't won a game under him so far which is very, very poor. I expect a significant improvement from the team or 2 weeks from now the knives will be out again. The Stig
  11. Just starting the obligatory "Sack<insert manager's name here>" thread. Vidosic's sacking is a reminder that results are expected. The Stig
  12. Fiji should be the next expansion side as it has the population to support a side.
  13. Hi. The title says it all but the show will go on somewhere in about 56 days. Do you think we could/should host it? I reckon it would be well supported. Stig
  14. Hi everyone Have Melbourne City qualified for the forthcoming ACL season? If so, when will the matches be played in Melbourne and who will our opponents be? cheers The Stig
