So Baumjohann is first choice for AM, but word is if that falls through we’re looking at Huklin Andsenker, a Turkish AM.

Nice, he can live in Auburn...

with Kerem.

Victory looking to sign Honda?!?!
wtf... we need an AM, they don't... How is it that the deal stacks up for them and not for us?
I always tried to avoid the 'Lederer tightass' comments but c'mon m8!

If Honda gets an offer near his valuation of himself Victory have no chance. He supposedly wants an after tax 4 million euro. The equivalent here would be something like $10 million before tax I believe.

As mack said above, and they can also funnel more payments through ACL games too.

Are we sure about the ACL payment bonus?

Whats to stop any team paying players 10-20% more in ACL to reduce impact on the salary cap? Surely there must be something preventing teams from rorting the cap using the ACL?

We only have 2 squad spots left both of which can be visas. We're clearly chasing an AM so you'd have to think our last spot is for a CB.

Our squad doesn't look that much stronger than last year's on paper unless these last 2 signings are spot on and Babbel's fitness and discipline regime eliminates second half fades completely.

Unless there's also a few players he's hoping to release in preseason...

3 if Celo is gone.

No we have 2 visa spots open.

We have Bonevacia, Llorente and Riera occupying visa spots. 

Carrusca is naturalised so is considered as Australian

Factors that come to mind: 

1) He can play in the ACL with Victory

2) Wanderers have had more Japanese players than any other A-League side, but how much of that was due to the popa connection?

           2a) If so, what is the chance he would go to Glory?

3) The German factor - Japanese players tend to like playing under German managers, more go to Bundesliga than any other foreign league

3) If it is being reported online that he is in talks with Victory, it probably won't happen, as we have already seen with a few other players this year

Ok. Hope we sign one CB and one AM. Would be nice to sign two germans. Babbel could use his connections. :) Höwedes from Schalke 04 would be nice too. Schalke wants to sell him.

Either would be good.  Maybe it will have to be determined based on wive's Instagrams? ;)

I’m getting rumours of FFA funded marquee

apparently 

Randy the Macho Man Savage & 

Diamond Dallas Page

are interested in trialling the FFA say it is inline with their sports based entertainment strategy 

 

Yes I have paid no attention to wrestling since about 1998

You kids can insert current wrestlers into the post at your leisure

Too soon :(

 

We need a CB. Are we really expecting to win anything with Hamill and Tongyk  pairing? Who's the backup? Tas?

Tass will be missing in the first few rounds if selected for the Australian u19 afc squad. See national team thread.

 How many twitter followers does he have? Can we arrange a six week trial to see if he is able to lift his social media profile to marquee status? 

Can he run really fast?
