  1. Personally I think developing youth and being able to sign then on Scholarship contracts is crucial in a salary capped league. Instead of wasting money on relatively expensive journeyman or cheap, useless squaddies, we are able to produce young players who are; Fighting to establish a career so are driven to perform Already fit into the club and the club knows full well what they are getting Their salary doesn't take up much cap space due to concessions Potential for the club to pick up transfer fees if they develop into players that spark interest from overseas How is any of this a negative over signing an Aleague journeyman that has never been good enough to pick up interest anywhere outside of the Aleague, has played for 7 clubs, has zero loyalty and is out there to jog around and pick up a bigger salary than a youth scholarship player. I honestly think the key to success in a salary capped league is producing good quality youth on Scholarship contracts. No other team in the league is doing it and by the time they catch on and start, we will be 10 years further established with our academy and will be streets ahead.
  2. We are dominating everything but just need a striker! Imagine a marquee striker and a fit Mitch Duke 🀀🀀
  3. Baccus looks to have lifted to another level during the off-season. I thought he was a standout against Leeds and is a standout again tonight. Good signs!!
  4. Daniel Lopar is an absolute wall. What a signing he is looking like. I hated that we used a foreign spot on the keeper but I am happy to admit its looking like I was horribly wrong.
  5. In other news. Smurfs beaten 2 nil by Brisbane πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Cya later latte sipping flogs!
  6. Am I the only one who keeps thinking the tree lit up by the red light behind our right hand corner post is a flare? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  7. Elrich is getting carved up by Harold. Majewski is looking classy AF.
  8. So the club just posted "12pm today"... any ideas?
  9. Off to CCM I hear. I would have been happy with him and use the foreign spot on an outfield player!
  10. Taggart is killing it in Korea. Won't be back anytime soon I wouldn't believe. However, if take him in a heart beat if the opportunity arises. I just saw he scored against Juventus this morning.
  11. I messaged Mitch saying I hope it isn't an ACL as rumours suggest. He replied "Not sure yet manπŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯". He would be a MASSIVE blow to lose for the season. Not just in individual talent but we all saw the effect he had on the team's attitude when he signed last season. Fingers crossed😩😩😩😩
  12. Crowd was 24,487 I think. Definitely in the 24s anyway.
  13. For me Elrich is looking like he will be huge liability. I'm not an Elrich hater either, he has been great for our club but last year he was a liability at times and he looked it again tonight unfortunately.
  14. Well, I'm going to go against the majority and say I rate it!! It definitely looks retro but it looks awesome I think. Would everyone prefer a Huddersfield style kit instead?? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  15. I own Nevilles boot that scored that screamer in the grandfinal in Adelaide. It sits on my tallboy and is proof for all those horrid crosses, he has a peach in him occasionally!!
