Just realised (with a giggle) that my few contributions to this serious and popular thread amount to little more than defense of Thomas Broich against Jack's insensitive comments re aspects of his appearance... and comments about the hairstyles of the players of other teams.

Sorry guys...and thanks for putting up with me. :pardon:

PS I do hope that Luke Brattan  has his man bun back by the start of next season...or even his cornrows.

Oooops! Can't help myself! :db:

 

I'll get outta here now! :D:D

This thread is about as popular as a car accident. You have to look even if you know you're not going to see anything good.

Hahahaha... of course it's popular...but you don't HAVE to look.

I find it too.....frustrating!   :rolleyes:

Off topic threads are where the entertainment is...in the off season. :hi:

We are Reds forum is claiming Nichols is about to sign as a marquee for AUFC next season. Thoughts?

 

Obviously not our squad but relevant since some fellas here will surely have strong feelings about it

Very average. His agent clear thinks he's done better.

Completely agree. A poster apparently in the know is saying his medical is Tuesday. I honestly can't see him starting over McGree

Would make a good #8 though

As we all did, missed Andreu and Alberto at the back.

Plus he didn't have the outlets of Bridge, Castelen and Vidosic.

Pretty sure his knee is troublesome and lost a little pace this season.

The guy worked his arse off for us, in let's face it a poor side (at least until Antonis joined)

If someone is willing to give marquee money then good luck to him

lets hope we use both marquee spots and sign someone better

if however we don't use the marquee spots fully this year (again) then I'm getting my pitch fork out Simpsons stylee

Seems like every other A-League team has been culling 10+ players.

Everyone copying WSW ;)

Most of the ones that left WSW were squaddies anyway. But we still need to sign 5+ starters.

Rebuilding for the entire competition except SFC it seems.

We look to be one of the clubs that have culled the least amount of players thus far.

It is understandable that ESFC do not have to worry about culling players due to their salary cap exemptions. :cheeky:

But they are FFA favourites and don't deserve any exemptions.

all exemptions should be removed.
