Headline: 'Breaking: Sydney pinch star from A-League rivals in ultimate robbery" Lol!!!

Part of the non-story says:

'Despite only finishing eighth in the 2018/19 season, Baumjohann had a breakout season in Sydney’s west, notching up 20 appearances and scoring three goals.

He arrives in Steve Corica’s new-look squad with an abundance of experience having made almost 100 appearances in the Bundesliga, most notably with Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, Hertha Berlin and Borussia Monchengladbach.'

Did he play elsewhere since us because I am trying to remember a 'breakout season'???!!!

I hope we continue the tradition of hacking the **** out of him whenever he gets the ball 

His comments deserve a hard first up tackle in derby 1 for sure.

Do we have a hit man in the squad at the moment?

Would be worth buying Brattan just to give him a proper "Welcome to Parramatta". He was a pea-heart in red-and-black, don't see him changing that aspect in blue.

Beat me to it, furthermore will rubber stamp Baccus jr approval to get a yellow card for knocking him into row x right now.

I'm hoping the stadium is willing to sell some rubber snakes at Bankwest when we play the smurfs and throw them at ABJ.

There should be a tifo saying "Just returning the favour, smurfs"

Can't see SFC adding to the silverware cabinet with ABJ sloppy seconds signings.

If we have a foreign striker signed we have to wait for Ziggy citizenship before we could sign another foreign player.

If we get Brattan, after Zig citizenship I think a foreign winger may be required more than another defender.

I was worried they'd pick up another Adrian or Bobo level player. Taking our rejects is actually kind of comforting.

They lost De Jong and replaced him with ABJ. They're both as injury prone as each other and De Jong is a better footballer so they've downgraded.

If Raddy can stay fit there's a good chance we've upgraded.

Brat, Jedinak and a pom ss should be in the cap

De Jong and Baumjohann had statistically similar seasons outside of three stats: passes made, "key" passes and fouls won. ABJ was significantly higher, over double in those categories.

SFC clearly feel that with their squad changing to ABJ will allow him to use those categories to more effect on the scoreboard than De Jong, or what ABJ did with us last year.

It might work. It might not.

I’ll level with you I think injury permitting he’ll be good for them 

LeFondre will finish the chances he creates that the likes of Kamau etc butchered 

His big club statements are stupid but then again in the last three years we’ve finished 6,7 8th

and our derby record is embarrassing 

time for our club to show something rather than talk about it

After your last comment saying something was imminent, thought I'd fish a little.

Never count your chickens.

Some potential visa players, hold out until their options start to reduce

It would be nice if we announced a player of two soon, according to TWG, Ryan McGowan is likely to be announced today as well by SFC.
