    Keanu Baccus

    That number may tail off after the first dozen or so when opponents start running away from him.
  2. Just sign in multiple times and sign the petition. If it’s good enough for an FFA survey...
  3. He's made 31 appearances for the first team, been sent off three times and suspended once for yellow card accumulation for a total of about 7 games suspended. Than means he averages roughly one game in the stands for every four and a half games he plays. As long as he can get his discipline in check (or he's taken a 20% pay cut to offset his suspensions) I'm ok with keeping him.

    West Melbourne: Season 2019/20

    I like that there's a team called Western United and there's a team west of them called United.
  5. My only criticism of Tomi outside of his injury rate is that he tries to cover too much ground (similar to Riera). He always seemed to be the guy out wide ready to put the cross in when he should have been the one getting on the end of the crosses.
  6. If the rumors are true there are a number of people high up in the FFA who just wanted Stajic out. That was their end game.
  7. Yeah that's what they were trying with Bobo, Ninkovic and Adrian. It's a bit of a balnacing act and if you screw it up you end up losing your best player.

    West Melbourne: Season 2019/20

    They'll be uniting the Melbourne City splitters with the people of Geelong.

    Babbel Out?

    He had total control within the budget allocated to him. If he couldn't get the players he wanted because the owners weren't willing to invest then he can't do much. I'm beginning to wonder whether the club decided to write off the three seasons away from home and focus on the academy while letting the rest just tick over. Would explain why Popa was so keen to get out in a hurry and why he would accept a job that looked so obviously shaky to everyone from the outset. He had to deal with it in 16/17, saw it wasn't getting any better last year and got out.
  10. It's weird agreeing with Alan Jones... Also I can tell I'm not in his target demographic when I have to listen to an ad about dentures before the interview.
  11. Makes you wonder how many of them knew they were acting as the FFA propaganda arm and how many were just victims of lazy journalism.

    Yep If I was the manager it'd be Tate in for the rest of the season.

    Kerem Bulut

    So he carries on like a knob in the dressing room. Popa didn't drop him in 14/15 when we had nothing to play for and Popa certainly wasn't afraid to drop people. Worst case he causes trouble and gets dropped, then he's equally as dropped as Pio was, making the same number of appearances and failing to score the same number of goals, but he's not taking up marquee wages or a visa spot.
  14. Don't give the cops any ideas. They'll try and have our stadium towed.
  15. People are already realising they're on the wrong side of this story and are trying to back away.

    Kerem Bulut

    Hey don't oversell Pio. Bulut had double the goals per 90 minutes that Pio did and that includes his dud second season. I still maintain that if and in form Bulut had stayed with us into the 15/16 season instead of us signing Pio and we used the visa spot elsewhere in our starting XI we would have won the league that year. We only just missed the plate, made the grand final and even if Bulut failed it'd be no different to Pio failing, except we'd have another visa player in our squad. In saying that, he wasn't the same player when he came back and the club was right to part ways with him.
  17. The Eels would probably have a sook if it was a futsal court or similar because it's not just our stadium, and they don't really have a equivalent version of their game. Basketball makes everyone equally unhappy.

    Western Athletic wins the name game for A-League newbies

    Babbel Out?

    Did it though? 2-0 win at Spotless against the Mariners is exactly the same result as last time, when he was dressed like a Joe Black mannequin.

    Did you see what he was wearing on Saturday?

    Babbel Out?

    I don't get why it needs to be an either/or situation with the managers approach. The managers job is to get the best out of his players, for some that's a kick up the arse and a public dressing down in the media when they don't perform, for others it's an arm around the shoulder and some constructive encouragement while publicly defending them or deflecting attention away from them. Surely a good manager can identify which players fall into which category and manage them accordingly. Considering how small the player pool is in the A-League and the limitations with players locked in to a portion of your salary cap I can't see it being a viable long term strategy to turn away players because they don't respond well to public criticism.
