  1. 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.
  2. Lopar McGowan Mourdakoutis Jurman Elrich Baccus Schwegler Georgevski Wilmering Duke Meier
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. "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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. In support of my original team.... I can see Ono only being given about 60 minutes being the first game of the season. At that point, Mooy will push up from defensive mid to attaching mid and we will then need a defensive mid option from the bench. With no La Rocca, I think Trifiro is our only experienced option to step in here. I don't think Heffernan is defensive mid material and the only other possibillity would be to give Spiranovic a run there.
  11. Covic Polenz Topor-Stanley Beachamp Dapuzzo Poljak Mooy Hersi Ono Bridge Juric Bench: Tyson Spiranovic Minnacon Santalab Trifiro I think La Rocca still has one game to go of his suspension??? Otherwise he would be in for Triffiro.
