  1. Agreed. Tate and Tass please. Get Galifuocco a start to see if his stellar derby game has built some confidence. Get Agamemnonous 30 minutes (no idea if he’s on the inclusions list)

    The grade of the concussion matters, but repeated concussion at a young age can ruin a career easily. From experience I know they can literally delete memories from your brain. I’d be shocked if this doesn’t shake his confidence horribly. Doea this mean the young fella from the U20s would start? No park time should be given to Nizic unless the kit boys have run out of traffic cones to sling a jersey on

    Every club has players at the bottom of the barrel that cost peanuts. Mahazi filled the gaps at Victory when they won the title a few times. If you want to spend bucket loads on your starting 11, we need a bargain bin player like Mahazi or Gallifuoco. Interested to see who the club waves goodbye to after the last game. I expect it this offseason will be full of fireworks and wild rumours. Love it

    At this point we know Mahazi could be a squadie and can probably serve a 1 year extension, he does OK coming off the bench to keep a lead. I want to see Gallifuoco get three solid games so we can see where he's truly at. If he can reproduce that second half for 3 games, give him a deal over Mahazi. Gallifuoco has that same monstrous mindset La Rocca used to have. He makes some seriously clattering tackles in open play, some he's been very unjustly penalised for. That keeps light footed opposition midfielders watching for him and waiting for contact. It plays with their heads. He's doubtlessly a better distributor than Mahazi too

    For me he was absent when we needed him. Playing at a leisurely pace when the ball wasn't at his feet.

    Galifuocco and Duke were great tonight. If Galifuocco played every game like that, he'd be a mainstay. Show us 3 games of that, please. Bloody hell Baumjohann is unfit. By the 55th minute he was barely getting out of the defensive line after set pieces and kept lagging behind the ball on brake. at 32 he aint getting any fitter. Bye Bye

    People forget how good Llorente was in his first season here. He’s now 33 and his legs have simply gone from under him, watch the jets highlights, Elrich sprint passed him chasing attackers twice. He can’t keep up with the play. Ill remember Llorente fondly, age gets us all. Cejudo on the other hand was here for a holiday. I have no patience for blokes on 1m a season who send more time arguing with officials than they do training. He’s gone to racing and has scored 4 in 11 off the bench, apparently Spain is worth giving a ****
  8. Not at all, and that’s not what I’m saying.
  9. Very happy to see Treejack starting. I’d love to see him earn a new contract for next year. When he’s on his game he’s easily marquee quality. He’s not shown he can do it for 2 consecutive games yet.

    There’s more than 2 strikers in our price range off contract. Not even end of the season yet. Riera has time to prove that his performance was due to **** team mates, score another 4 in the last 4 games. Let him prove he wants to be here. Failing something like that we go find a new striker in the off season. It’s a LONG way from stress out time.

    Sotirio is a good shout for a squadie. Imagine having Yeboah and Duke running at you for 80 minutes, one stupid fast and pretty strong, the other stupid strong and pretty fast. Then having one of them subbed off only to have another 10 minute on tired legs trying to chase Sotirio down. His end product might mean the ball ends up in row 27 but he won’t have any defenders around him when he does it!! Seriously though our lack of wing backs in concerning. It’s something both sydney and Perth have had in common is very strong wing backs, helping put pressure on opposition defence. I don’t see that in Tate and Elrich

    Thats not adding up. We've heard nothing about a visa slot being added so im skeptical about that. We cant have 2 spots and sign 3. That would be assuming it was extended and that the other rumour was incorrect. It makes sense to let Roly go. He doesn't fit anymore. A CDM playing LW that can't pass. My suspicion is we will retain Riera and the Germans then sign 2 more. I can't see a visa allocation going up without plenty of warning and a pretty decent cap increase.

    Completely fine with the obvious 4 extending. Bye bye Raul From the bench? That would be insanity. CSL teams have a mandatory youth utilisation requirement. They just sub them off after 5 minutes. Also trying to attract GOOD foreigners will be hard if they think their ability to start is taken out of their hands, especially with a very short season. Then you are left bring in **** foreigners and if thats the case you might as well give that spot to Aussies

    Maybe. We have found a formula that lets us score goals but we are holier than a block of swiss cheese at the back. There needs to be some serious change back there. Maybe Aussie Pat will fix it but I'm not convinced he can stay injury free and we can't have a whole season riding on a single bloke. Right now our problem is god damned midfielders. Riera could pass for another season with the players around him now. But we have a single defensive midfielder who is capable of getting in the ring with top 3 teams. I just dont want to hear about another bloody winger being signed.

    Part of the issue is the "educated mummy" persona. They spend too much time reading Dr Oz articles instead of peer-reviewed medical journals (that they wouldn't understand anyway) and come to the conclusion that a) vaccines cause autism and b) they can stave off global plagues with some turmeric and goat urine. Im actually a little disappointed about the Brattan thing. He's a solid option at CDM and would have allowed us to spend big at CB and in the front 4
