    Just on Manchester Shitty's site, they are giving away free tickets to members for the FFA Cup game against us.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures but surely the members getting free tickets to draw a crowd is really scraping the barrel for a crowd. Not good for Shitty, they could have used as a fundraiser for the Farmer's Drought relief, that at least would give members and fans a nice feel good opportunity, probably also get people to go just to help raise a bit of money for our farmer's and their families.

    An idea maybe for our season launch, we could ask for donations for the Drought relief cause.

    Going to be absolutely spanked. Nizic is good for atleast 1 howler a game it seems and I can't see us outscoring them. 3-1 or 4-2 incoming.

    Would just like to see a rock solid defensive performance....even if we lose by the 1 goal or on pennas.

    I think if you have a foxtel subscription you just log into the fox sports website and stream in via the on demand page

    Keanu #6, Grozos #8 & Treejack #10 is our best midfield option

    Kosta can do it all. #10 is his best role, but can play #8 

    He's getting back into it after the dislocated shoulder in Darwin & should get an extended run on Saturday

    • I hear ya. Pumping up the squad with HAL grade players is not the answer. Popa is able to squeeze the last drop of performance out of mediocre players with a focus on training intensity, fitness, and discipline. But S5 everyone (including the man himself) realized that this approach only gets you this far with players like Borda, Bruno, Melling, Dimas, Jumpei, Lustica, Bulut, Clisby. Short term: increase the number of imports. The "good" Aussies that are hanging around in the HAL are seen as quality players and are paid reasonably well because of that, and because there's only few of them. But Brilliante, O'Neill, Davidson etc - they aren't THAT good. You can get a better football import professional for the same money. It would improve the quality of the squad immediately, and local players would have to work harder to make the match day squad. Mid to long term: increase the squad size with more competent youth players, and that means a focus on youth development. MB and his coaching group lifted the capabilities of our youth players significantly as the season progressed, and we are going to see more of that. If one young wanderer per season makes the jump to Europe, it will be motivation for the other ambitious youngsters.    
    • The clubs want more of the broadcast deal which is the only way to get better quality players and/or increase squad size. The best way to do get better quality visa players is remove some of the restrictions imposed by the FFA like having rent paid or a specific allowance for it outside the cap. Also, take the car allowance outside the cap. The FFA insists these are part of the cap. I think that the visa players should have a restriction in terms of position for each team:  1 defender, 1 midfielder,  1 forward with the other 2 not All being the same type of position e.g. cannot have 1 defender,  1 midfielder,  3 forwards. So 2 defenders max, 2 midfielders max or 2 forwards max. To increase squad size, obviously the cap total per club has to increase with less money for Gallop. there could be 2 NPL rookies allowed per season both outside the cap. 
    • How do we pay for the increased squad sizes with clubs losing money hand over fist? How do we afford better quality players to raise the standard?
