This man's an ACL pro. I think I have a customisation chosen if they eventually release the ACL jersey.

I thought he had his best game for us last night since the Brisbane GF. If he's staying next season I'd like to see this version front up more than once a year !!

Reports are that he's moving to Perth. Before the Perth game he posted that that match was probably going to be his last match. Because of his age & Popa likely wanting to rebuild in midfield I don't see him getting more than a 1 year extension, so I'd say he'd be keen to move on himself.

If he does indeed go, he'll be remembered as a beast in our formative years. Wish him the best of luck

 

P.s. Nice work getting revenge on Ali Abbas for your house mate Santa ;)

His goal and celebration against the Mariners that put us into the second final will be remembered forever.

 

I can still hear the commentator after watching the replay 'La Roccaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, the grand final is calling for the Western Sydney Wanderers'.

And none of us saw it lol

That's why you set the record on before you see off to the game.

That's a done deal. Prob a good thing though. Mike Ashley might actually spend some money

Surprised and disappointed to see him go, I'll miss him running round kicking people over in the midfield.

Wow. They'll play him at centre back.

 

I think they might change structure a bit and have him next to Sanchez.

Maybe they can teach him to pass a ball. as much as I loved him charging round knocking people over his passing was really pretty bad

You thinking of Isais bro? As deep mid?

I thought maybe he's replacing boogardt.
