Squad Development S3 Part 2


Recommended Posts

This week Ins & outs from the FFA have the following:

 

Unavailable: 34.Golgol MEBRAHTU (knee – indefinite), 18.Iacopo La Rocca (injured – 2 weeks), 17.Romeo CASTELEN (injured – 1 week)

 

 

So La Rocca out for another 2 weeks and Castelen 1 week.  It seems like Adeleke has very little time to find a new club.

La Rocca was listed as 2 weeks last week....I hope the rumours of him moving on aren't true.

Pretty sure he is actually injured as you need a doctor to put in a report in order to get an injury replacement approved by the FFA. Could always move on at end of the season though!

In the press conference at Penrith Popa said that "bodies are starting to come back" within weeks and mentioned Castelen and La Rocca.

Yeah but remember last season when Minniecon got "injured" and never seen again...

La Rocca is first team guaranteed starter and Tahj was behind Kubi in the pecking order (who was behind bridge, Hersi , Santa and Labinot). It was no surprise after struggling with injury in season one, then after coming back mid year in season 2 before getting another season ending injury that he was let go at the end of the season. I'd be more worried about some like Gol Gol who had been cleared by the surgeon at the end of November and despite being one of the fittest in our squad hasn't seen the first team (not even the bench) at all especially with our depth in that position.

Tanaka to move to the A-League squad permanently I take it?

 

That'd be hard on Kalmar who's looked good apart from the one lapse at City. Still, a nice position for Popa to be in I suppose, being able to choose between two quality players

afaik Mebrahtu is back training with the squad, not sure about Baccus.

Can someone back me up on this, did anyone else see something that Baccus had an ankle injury? As with all WSW related injury news, everything is hush hush and Getting information out of Popa is like getting blood from a stone.

Quite amazing that nothing has been said/leaked about the status of Baccus for almost two months now.

I was at a NYL game earlier this year and he had his ankle in a massive cast, while on crutches - so I'd say that ankle injury is accurate.

I thought I read somewhere he might be out for the season but I can't find it now.

It will be hard for Bulut to make an impact in the ACL if that's all plays. No doubt he'll be coming off the bench and playing with a team he has never played with in a match situation other than training and expected to hopefully make a difference. Then  he sits out the HAL games until the next ACL and so on. Not ideal.
