Pretty sure, squaddie. The club would of announced it if he was a marquee.

As long as it fills the prescriptions, the FFA has no right of refusal to register.

The list of factors that make up the “marquee” status are arbitrary, we have had such players rejected in the past. They’re just making it up as they go along.

That has also applied to 14 match guest players.

The FFA has always pandered to the Smurfs over anyone else.

Did people on Facebook watch last season?

 

Let me guess. They are complaining that we've let players go, because they liked them?

Then when we retain these players, they complain we aren't improving the squad :rofl:

This crop of players have failed to make the finals 2 years in a row. See ya.

WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A SQUAD WE'LL BE PLAYING WITH 9 MEN AGAINST LEEDS OMG

Surely there'll be a few kids in the car park - we can use them.  Having not heard of a few of the young fellas this year, we thought they'd be picked up in the car park this year.  Although, having heard Craig Johnson's story with Liverpool, he was literally picked up in hte car park washing the players cars and shoes after failing in his trial - he did alright.  Maybe this is a better strategy??!

that happens at most HAL clubs when a foreign GK is signed. Vedran only has himself to blame for that.

We’ve wasted foreign spots before on strikers, wingers, midfielders and full backs, so why not a goalkeeper. He will struggle to be our worst foreigner ever... At least he’s not a marquee *cough* Pio.

Would Jedinak still be an option? He must be sick of getting splinters on his backside.

Where will he be playing next season? Surely he  won't be still  be at Aston Villa?

Will be back in Oz soon, saw his name listed as special guest at a fundraiser at King Tom club on  June 7 from memory.

Also reckon the club better sign up Mo Adam quick smart if they haven't already.  According to someone on Facebook  an overseas club has already started sniffing around.

Would like to see him coming off the bench against Leeds.

So Neidermeier is leaving Victory. I wonder if Babbel will try and sign him now?

Unless Zeigler has become an aussie, surely not. We cant have GK, 2 CBs and a DM as foreign. If Ziggy has though - that would make a defence and a half

Babbel wanted him prior to Ziegler. Would make a great CB partnership...

Russell..Ziggy..Neidemeyer..Georgievski

...............Schwegler....Baccus

He's already sent someone to our training ground to spy on us apparently.

Juric has left Luzern

I would like to see him at the Wanderers...but I dont see it happening.

Got a feeling he'll end up at some English Championship club or at some Bundesliga II club.

How much has he developed since he left us? He's not your Berisha/Fornarolli type of "goal sneak" we've always lacked, and I think it would be a backward step unless we get a world-class 10 to feed him.

A front three on Duke, Yeboah and Juric has plenty of goals in it. My concern is the injury prone nature of Juric and Yeboah.

Weve seen is past seasons that the best defensive team wins it, in fact almost always, so im personally not overly concerned about a marquee striker. A marquee CB and CAM would mean we have to go after an Aussie at striker, and right now that would be Tomi. However we will need another winger with scoring ability since any injury would cause Yeboah or Duke to move to 9.

The aim has to be to strengthen each area of the team, we've been lacking in each department.

  • GK tick
  • DM tick, one more needed
  • FB tick, one more needed
  • CB
  • AM
  • winger
  • CF

Those remaining four positions are key. Doesn't matter what is filled with Aussies or imports, as long as we get it right.

Villa just got promoted and he played in 6 of their last 9 games apparently.

Who is the best available Aussie for each of those spots? I think its gonna be tough.
