  1. You've sorta described the bloke in the above image, except he drives a Kingswood
  2. Euros, which at the time equated to AUD 160k - 240k. Yes, @Erebuswe're doing our best to offload Borda to another club
  3. Very shady character in the background at 12 secs
  4. I assume so, he wanted too much moneyz to come down under
  5. Drop the Westin given our functions are now held within the CBD. Going forward we should be known as the Sydney Warriors
  6. I doubt Popa has signed Roly to play in anything other than an attacking role. Vargas was the other player we were trying to sign as a visa marquee. Whilst he's an accomplished AM, in every game he started last season, he was playing in a wide role. Rotation within our front 3rd is a key factor in our attacking approach.
  7. We have 2 x #19's. Bridge & Melling http://www.wswanderersfc.com.au/team/a_league
  8. You ask too many questions. #Prydz the 2nd
  9. Pretty accurate description. He was offered a 2 year deal with WSW around Christmas, but his agent told him he'd lined up a 3 month trial with a 1st division European club. Despite him being convinced he would be training with the 1st squad, kid was training with their youth (u18's) so returned home about 2 - 3 months ago. He can play, but doesn't always play a team game. I'm more disappointed that we didn't snag John Roberts, who is a Mt Druitt youngster & has been playing #9 for COE & Joeys last 2 years. CFG will find a career path for that lad.
  10. We just need to sign a can opener to play @ #10 & we could even flirt with playing a 4 - 4- 2 formation
  11. We have 2 Members Forum threads?
  12. We are no more of a community entity, than the local milk bar or pie shop. I don't understand why RBB related topics are off limits. I anticipate 90% of the general business content, will focus on active support
  13. Semi-pro second division won't work warns PFA The A-League players' union has urged Football Federation Australia to seriously consider the merits of a national second division. Source: AAP 17 JUL 2017 - 6:23 PM UPDATED 16 MINS AGO But Professional Footballers Australia CEO John Didulica has warned any efforts to "reverse engineer" a cut-price, semi-professional blueprint to suit state-league clubs would be doomed to fail. The Association of Australian Football Clubs (AAFC), a lobby group of more than 100 NPL clubs, held their first board meeting in Brisbane on Saturday as they seek to further their plans to establish a second division with eventual promotion and relegation to the top tier. The AAFC board discussed three potential models - including a dual conference structure to negate travel costs - and intends to publish a report in October detailing their preferred option. However, AAFC chairman Rabieh Krayem - the former boss of defunct A-League club North Queensland Fury - has suggested it would most likely be a semi-professional competition involving former National Soccer League clubs like Sydney Olympic, Melbourne Knights and South Melbourne. The AAFC has also dismissed PFA modelling that suggested it would cost $5.5 million per year to run a professional second division club, in addition to more than $10 million in centralised league operating costs, arguing it could be done for around half that amount. Didulica is adamant that doing it on the cheap would not create the sort of playing opportunities Australian football desperately needs. "To take the step carelessly and just hope things fall into place is hugely risky and people who have formed this group have been part of A-League clubs that have failed," Didulica told AAP. "They should know the pitfalls of acting with haste. "It's fine to dismiss that figure, saying 'we can't afford it' - but then you're not ready to have a fully professional second-tier competition. "What you're proposing is a re-heated semi-professional competition. My question is, what's the point? "We can't just reverse engineer a league to suit existing interests. We need to take a step back and ask what is in the interests of Australian football." It's understood FFA see the AAFC's call for a second division as implausible given the game's current financial state. Any national second division would need to be sanctioned by FFA, or else it would operate outside of FIFA rules. AAFC is also seeking a position on FFA's congress, the body that elects members to FFA's board. "There'll be various views about that that will come forward when the FIFA/AFC delegation arrive," FFA chief David Gallop told AAP. "That's as much as we can say about that at this point."
