  1. Would have preferred Ibini.... we might still get both if Newcastle lets him loose.
  2. Slightly left field.... but I would love to see Ruben Zadkovic get the job.
  3. I've seen suggestions like Year 12 come Monday, Year 7 Tuesday, etc. and we split classes in half to get social distancing. It's just not that simple. Some teachers have multiple year 12 classes, some have none. Chemistry needs labs but if you have all the same year on the same day there are neither the labs nor the qualified teachers to cover the classes. You might be able to social distance in the classroom but once the bell rings there will be kids hugging each other all over the playground. New York is now estimating that 80-90% of kids are infected (but asymptomatic).
  4. I was really doubting McGowan during pre-season but, since shifting to a back four, he has been terrific in defence as well has his distribution. Any word on Schwegler's injury? It was hot and humid.... that is a real advantage for a team like Brisbane who are acclimatised to it.
  5. Lopar McGowan Mourdakoutis Jurman Elrich Baccus Schwegler Georgevski Wilmering Duke Meier
  6. It could also be that with Elrich as the wingback, he didn't venture forward nearly as much as Georgievski would have and it resembled a back four even though the formation didn't officially change.
  7. I'm not so sure I want Gombau after seeing this photo....... I don't think it would be good for team morale. (Although I bet Goodwin plays for Australia soon).
  8. The assistants are just that..... they have no say in the set up of the team or strategy. Ante will run sessions based on what Ange wants to work on. He even has to present a PowerPoint to Ange on what will happen in the session (I've seen one of these that Ante produced at a coaching course I did.... it was simply outstanding).
  9. If Popovic got the offer at 10pm last night, I really doubt that Carrasco, Foxe and Kalac have all signed on so quickly. I know Popovic had a "get out" clause in his contract but I would be staggered if all of the others had the same thing as well. Doesn't quite add up.
  10. "freeloading Spartans".... by that you mean the local kids (whose parents pay rates) kicked off the grounds by council so that a commercial enterprise takes priority? There's different ways to look at the same thing.
  11. Bottom line is Cole is too slow to play as a fullback. Whilst he isn't really quick enough to be a winger he has enough skill to hold his own and play as more of a link player. In the modern game you need quick and fit fullbacks.
  12. How about a left field solution to the left fullback problem. There is a stream of thought that D'Apuzzo is not up to the standard of the rest of the team..... our alternatives (Cole and Heffernan are both too slow). Yet, we have 3 good players fighting for the 2 defensive midfield roles. Now, remembering that Polenz came to Aus as a defensive midfielder and has since been converted to right fullback. How about we try Poljak at left fullback and leave Mooy and LaRocca at defensive mids?
