Baumjohann watching midnight fireworks and Riera having a dip with the kids, imagine if Popa was running the show?

honestly we need a berisha type player, arrogant, very easy to hate if they are on the other team but can score goals, need defenders like NTS

Nichols and goals don't go together anymore. And plus another one of the most recycled players ever!

Who do we seriously think Babbel will actually keep from this list? Maybe AB10 and Baccus?

Baccus would be the only player I'd be sure he'd like to keep.

Bridge, Roly, Llorente, Scott, Roberts all 100% gone imo, Risdon will likely leave the club to go to Europe, if he isn't sold in January like rumours have suggested.

He won’t put in the work any more. 

With the amount of players we want to see moved on, I’m not sure where we’d unearth their replacements from. The foreigners will be the easy part with Babbel, but the locals are thin on the ground. Let’s see what he’s got up his sleeve

Release everyone who is off contract except for Baccus and Tokich. No-one on that list has done enough to justify getting another contract from our club.

From everyone on longer contracts, "mutually" terminate Nizic and upgrade Suman into the first team.

For Australian players, go after: Spiranovic, Jason Davidson, Brattan, Troisi, Mileusnic.

  • Keanu Baccus
  • Marc Tokich
  • Bruce Kamau
  • Nicholas Suman
  • Tate Russel (U21)
  • Tass Mourdoukoutas
  • Jordan O'Doherty
  • Kosta Grozos
  • Nick Fitzgerald
  • Patrick Ziegler (Foreign)
  • Vedran Janjetovic
  • Spiranovic
  • Davidson
  • Brattan
  • Mileusnic

In the starting 11: Vedran, Ziegler, Spiranovic, Jason Davidson, Baccus, Brattan, Mileusnic.

We'd need to find new starting 11 players at: Right Fullback, Right Wing, Attacking Midfield, Forward. All of these should be foreign players.

Subs/Squad players: Tokich, Kamau, Suman, Russel, Tass, O'Doherty, Grozos, Fitzgerald.

If Ziggy gets his citizenship we'd be left with one more foreign spot, which we would want to use to push Vedran, Mileusnic or Baccus to the bench. I'd lean towards a DM or GK. DM because Baccus is still pretty young, and GK because Vedran hasn't hit any special major heights and a "6th" foreign spot on a GK would give us the entire world to search from to find a better keeper.

The most important thing is the new players have to be scorers. This current season and the previous two we have been dreadfully reliant on our striker (Riera or Santalab) and no-one else has got more than 4 goals. We need a defence that scores a handful of goals from set pieces, we need the central mids to score 3 to 5 each, the wide players need to score at least 5 minimum in addition to setting up, the attacking mid needs to be involved in assisting or scoring 20. The striker we want a golden boot winner.

We hope Babbel has good scouting contracts back in Europe because we can't fail again with the foreigners, especially the attacking mid and whoever we replace Riera with.

The Nux have signed Cillian Sheridan

I think we have 2 senior spots open. 

I think one was held for a potential visa signing based on Ziggy's citizenship status even before Tongyik got punted

Roberts?  I am sure I read an article at the start of the season saying look out for him because he was going to be the next big thing.

I think I must have meant Risdon.

Honestly I know people bag Majok out for his first touch but from the 12 minutes I saw from him in the City game he was one of our best players for the whole match. His first start wasn't bad either. Regularly comes off the bench and is/was one of the Y-League top scorers. Re-sign him as well imo.

Young players U21 if they are outside the main squad are probably somewhat irrelevant to deciding the starting 11 + 5 subs.
