    Reported on Twitter by Michael Turner that Citeh are looking to get Baby Baccus. Talk that it could involve a player swap with Brattan. Also speculation we could sign Jan Kirchoff during Jan

    Vedran Hands Sydney FC Derby Win

    I hear Babbels explanation about ABJ and ultimately it's his decision to make but imagine the Smurfs joy at seeing him trot off? Mentally they would have thought "Their best player is off. We don't need to worry about them scoring anymore, it's just a matter of time now for us". Sure enough we hardly saw the ball again. Defeat became inevitable and we all knew it. We should have least kept a threat on the pitch.
  3. I guess it depends if the FFA/WSW want to lobby on behalf of the game/club for some recognition

    Wanderers Bounce Back Over Mariners

    Scrappy game. Ultimately we've only beaten the nix and mariners so it needs putting in perspective. Ziggy added some stardust in defence that's for sure. BJ getting better. Riera is a worry. Crowd a tick over 8k. Eeeeek that's terrible.
  5. To be fair once the director saw it was jashua steaming in he took the decision to cut away.
  6. Geez all sotirio had to do was roll that square and Riera could have knocked it in with his gentleman's sausage.

    If Oriol goes maybe but they'd never play in the same team. Identical position.
  8. Fitzgerald actually used those very words on Bill & Boz this week.

    Honda Runs Over Wanderers

    We won't lose. We'll beat the Mariners and so begins the false dawn again. We'll be upbeat with a victory, with the Mariners making us look good and then we'll tank against the next quality side. Unfortunately Marcus can't make a silk purse etc etc. You can't compete in this league without your imports in good shape. Our striker is woefully out of form and 2 others are injured. Our club is also determined to ensure it is run to a balance sheet. If this continues then we'l never compete with the Smurfs (who have never broke even in their history yet are happy to spend big) and Victory. Ultimately this is Lederer's decision, he is the majority owner and he can run the club how he see fit but most people who get into football do so because it is their passion and they are happy to lose money on it. Like all of us spend money on what we enjoy, not looking to 'break even'. Equivalent in the EPL is Mike Ashley at Newcastle. Runs the club tight like a business and as long as he does just enough to maintain Premier League status he isn't going to go into the red. If this mentality doesn't change then neither will our hope to compete as a genuine 'big club'. If the salary cap ever goes then we will definitely have to choose between being a constant challenger and an elite Australian club or one who occasionally gives the big boys a bloody nose. A few more thousand every week through the turnstiles ins't going to make that much difference either.
