  2. Very cloak and dagger stuff from the people's club at the moment. You get more candour from that orange mouth in the White House than this mob

    Adelaide United: Season 2018/19

    Unlimited will have nothing to add to this one. Adelaide appear to have signed Mirko Boland, a 72 rated German CM.

    Kudos to him for all his work and results for the national team, but at 38 I can't see him landing a gig in the MLS or Europe. Personally, I havent rated him in the A League either. He probably needs to move into a management role, he has a particular skillset in marketing and personal branding.

    Hey Prydz Where's the report that Honda said no? The Vuck think he is still coming.

    Melbourne Victory: Season 2018/19

    Then we found out the what he was getting in Japan was nowhere close to what they were offering. Another big clue: Officials were going to go over to him in the days before he signed but he declined the offer. Details that come out in the wash are always an interesting insight.

    Every staff member at Sydney thought the same about Torres and within the space of a few hours he was gone...

    FFA are going to give Victory $2m from the "marquee fund". The last million will end up at Sydney FC or Melbourne City.

    Melbourne Victory: Season 2018/19

    Second that, provided it is not some kind of deal that spends the whole league war chest in an inequitable manner on just one player for one club, at the exclusion of all others. And to be honest, I don't think we have done ourselves any favours in the last year or so in terms of presenting a successful well run that would be attractive to high profile foreign players.

    Melbourne Victory: Season 2018/19

    I would be very happy for the A-league to get Honda amazing player to have in the league.... Just a shame its not with the Wanderers as per people saying before the club ruled him out at the forum in June

    World Cup 2018

    Btron, nice assessment & yes it was a fantastic tournament. The first stage had upsets but was all about the mix of cultures on and off the field. The second stage had countries with so much history playing against one another but it was such a level playing field. On the comments re: Champions league, I find it hard not to agree. I found it a bit difficult to explain the France team, they won the World Cup but I never thought they played to their ability. They won against all the big teams, Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium & Croatia but they did it playing a functional brand of football of which its purpose was to win. In the champions league, we are spoilt not just by the quality of players (Lovren & Giroud an example) but the quality of coaching. Where the CL doesn’t compete with WC is its global nature & appeal, so it just can’t compete on an emotional level. It doesn’t matter how big your country is, how rich, how many people, how many stars on the shirt or your history. This is the issue with the CL, it has an incredible array of top coaching & player quality but it’s all focused on the top teams. Those top teams will only get better & the rich will keep getting richer. Is one better than the other? Can’t we like both? WC final referee decisions. Griezmann was going to ground but the defender made contact, was it soft? Yes, did he conn the referee? Yes but the defender goes in & doesn’t get the ball. It’s a foul. Handball: I maybe feel the referee didn’t take into account the France player in front of him. There is a gap of understanding between the general footballing public’s understanding vs the referees intepretation of the Law. It’s such a harsh handball decision but one that was correct, especially since the referee didn’t see the handball on first viewing. WC Final. France scored 4 goals but I feel the game swung on those two decisions that led to 2 goals. France didn’t deserve that 2-1 lead at half time & meant that Croatia had to open themselves up to win the game. France at no point in that game were required to change gears or take the game by the scruff of the neck. The issue in the second half? Croatia had played one extra game (in terms of minutes played) & France have some incredible players who can exploit space. Would have been much closer if it had been 1-1 or even 1-0 as it what Croatia deserved out of that first half. Re: Stokz. Croatia friendly: Europe have the nations league starting in September. Makes it unlikely. Team of the tournament: Kante & Pogba were as vital as Rakitic & Modric. Two players as CF that I think your team lacked was Manzukic & Giroud. They were both so vital to both teams success & despite Girouds lack of praise he was one of the unlikely heroes in this France team. Hernandez for France? Throw that guy in the bin. Umtiti was just as important as Varane. Special mention for VAR & refereeing, has been horrible in Australia but I’m really glad it didn’t blight the tournament. No surprise that they mainly used Italians in the box, where the trial has been successful & Australian officials no where the tournament. Important to have quality officials upstairs as it is to have them on the field. Wording from IFAB needs to change to remove confusion but always has been a gap of understanding between officials & footballing public. Refereeing has been very very good, thought they tried to keep it 11v11 despite the challenges otherwise. Important to realise that at that level (re tackles) it’s different & need to realise that it’s not based on player safety (grassroots) rather entertainment (professional game). Games flowed really well & referees didn’t get played by the play acting (VAR helped)

    World Cup 2018

    Spot on. I remember waking up early as a kid and watching, thinking it was the best thing ever whilst receiving a lesson in geography and languages from all these exotic teams across Europe. These days it's the same team doing the same thing. What even is financial fair play??
