  1. I tend to agree. This is by far the worst Victory team I have seen and a decent attack would have notched up 5 or 6 goals against them.
  2. Only one thing to say about Yeboah - the new Sotirio!
  3. The club must provide the script for these foreign players to read for the press release - they all say the same thing; "to play for the biggest club in Australia is exciting,” (biggest club - yeah right!) “I have watched the A-League here in the UK and also played in Asia in the Asian Champions League so I have seen a lot of matches ...." (Yeah - I am sure you did!) Seriously, is this the best we can do for an OS import? Worth bringing him or is it CR looking after a mate?
  4. All I can say is - THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!!
  5. Jets squad weren't that bad and were still considered to be under performing before he came. With us it, will be a case of over performing if he achieves anything with the squad we have. Every other club in the league seems to have made some decent signings and look better on paper at least, with SFC, Victory and Glory, already battle hardened and ready thanks to the ACL.
  6. Getting a sore neck from shaking my head at other team's announcements of new players. The latest being this and Juric. Juric of course, joins the exclusive club of good players let go and when they are available again, WSW are unwilling to sign (Antonis, Economides, Spiranovic etc). Oh well, as long as we have our fantastic youth! PS Would love nothing more than my sarcasm and intrepidation about this season's youth policy to be proven unfounded but I just can't see it!
  7. Exactly - either past peak or they will leave for OS just before they reach it which is why I am still so underwhelmed by the recruitment this season. Yes Sydney FC may not have the fancy academy and youth system but, on the playing field where is matters and what I am only interested in, they are still way ahead of where we should be.
  8. Yes but they are still making decent signings - if we are a "big club" which I keep hearing why aren't we doing the same?
  9. Our recruitment so far - promoted players from the WSW youth team which finished 2nd last last season and rejected youth players from other teams. Would you class the squad as it is now, possibly the worst at the start of a season for WSW?
  10. I think in the half hour or so he was interviewed on that TWG Podcast, he must have broken the record for the most cliches used by a coach in the history of football at the start of their tenure!
  11. Oh no! He is talking about "3 year projects" and "no quick fix". And another season gone!
  12. I would argue that those "years of misery and 2 years of patient building" caused SFC to lose support which even the subsequent success has not brought back or even built upon. Their crowds in the last few years did not match the success they have had on the field or even the type of crowds they were getting earlier in their history. My point here is that in a fickle footballing environment which Sydney unfortunately is, a club cannot afford to have years of patient building up because people will just lose interest and would be unlikely to return as has been the case with WSW. The other
  13. I thought Aloisi was very complimentary to WSW fans on the Simon Hill Podcast labelling the atmosphere at the WSW/Brisbane Semi, the best he has ever experienced - now it makes sense!!
  14. According to Bossi "Sources close to de Marigny suggested issues about recruitment, support staff, season planning and personal differences had convinced the club to look for a new coach for next season, which begins in late December."
