Shannon Cole

Recommended Posts

Should be picked ahead of Lustica and will offer more than him, come on Popa pick him to play already.

Nope. Lustica is a definite Shannon upgrade. Better dribbler, more spacially aware, hits a dead-ball just as well and is stronger on the ball.

Lustica might be better on the ball than shannon - but shannon is a far better wide player. Lustica needs to be central imo.

Shannon's movement and energy create space for his teammates, especially late in the game. Lustica is solid. I can see the argument for starting Lustica ahead of Shannon, but if neither of them start and you have a central midfielder on the bench I think Shannon has more value when the opposition is tiring.

After Saturday we need this guy on the pitch desperately. Since Topor has gone we have no leadership and the back and for my money this guy has it in spades.

Match fitness might be a problem but 2 or 3 substitute appearances will sort that out.

I was watching the derby pre-game and noticed that in the locker room shot he dressed to play. Looks like he might have been the spare man.

He's been in the "17" for about the last 6 weeks. Either as an unused sub, or the extra guy who warms up with the team.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to see him start tomorrow night!

Spotted this guy in the Coffee Club today at Sydney Olympic Park. Was having lunch with his family. His daughter is adorable :wub:

Hopefully not on his lunch break from serving coffee...not sure what he is doing these days.

To get play or coach? After the ACL his time with us was characterized by continuous injury issues. I wonder if he has taken a year or so (18 months) to get his body right to play again? 34 is a strange age to give overseas a go.

When people talk about the leadership team, he might not have been front & center but was a part of the heart & soul of the club.

His wife is American AFAIK. They may've moved to the States and he's just playing with a local team like playing NPL1/2 here.

A good backstory on his move to the USA

i'd still have him back in a heartbeat

Are you sure? He was terribly out of form before he left, and the final season was an injury similar to Bridge. First 2 seasons he was fantastic but then dropped off.
