Robbie Fowler basically says Sydney are cheating !! 

The 44-year-old admits he's been left baffled by the calibre of talent some of his rivals have been able to pull together in their squads.

"It's been a bit of a nightmare to be honest," Fowler said.

"When you look at some of the teams, I don't know how teams do it.

"For example you look at Sydney last week when we played them, there's players on mega, mega deals.

"I know there's a way around salary caps but I'm still learning."

Fowler's comments come a day after Melbourne City captain Scott Jamieson became the latest A-League identity to suggest it's time the cap was adjusted.

Jamieson labelled the cap a "shambles" and suggested it should be reserved to Australian players with clubs allowed to then spend whatever they like on their quota of imports.

"Teams are spending the floor of their salary cap and other teams are spending a lot more, and it's not really doing anything for the competition to make it fair," Jamieson said.

What a thick Kopite, it wasn’t sydney or the salary cap that made him blow his import slots on bog average league one and league two players 

What is his point? If the A League dropped the salary cap, how will tang help him his owners haven’t used the marquee spots available as it is

A phenomenal football team, just on another level when it comes to anything else they face. Fowler is right of course, recruitment spot on but helps when you keep a team together for a number of years, unlock squad loyalty exemptions, fulfill both marquee player spots, allow you to spend big to buy players  that nobody can compete.

They've always had a squad that was stacked in terms of its first XI & light in terms of the remainder of the squad. What’s impressive is how he is integrating youth team players into the team. Okay not perfectly, look at that youth team striker but much better than Arnie ever did. Lots of credit due to Corica.

So your saying ours isn't working.

That's tongue in cheek. 

My point is, on the basis that stringer is inferring we don't have a plan, WSW does in fact have a plan but so far it's not working as well as intended.

Yep..as a club both on and off the pitch they are so far ahead of us its embarrassing.

How are they better off the pitch though? They've got their squad and recruitment sorted. We've arguably got better facilities/infrastructure, youth programs, membership numbers, community links and sponsorship dollars.

Yes, we're a basketcase on the pitch, but things are decent off the pitch. If we were winning, everything would be relatively rosy.

300k xfer - good luck getting 3 times for baccus PL and JT

I think it is more a deterrent. To lose Baccus now, with no other senior midfield to replace him would be ludicrous on a season that is going backwards, fast.

Throw in that it is very difficult to find a replacement in the January transfer window.
