    He’ll he’s worth a sniff. He’s been getting regular game time in a superior team in a superior league. He’s only 24 and has a pretty bright career ahead. Id be more than happy to grab him. Again there’s sweet **** all coming up in long term defensive options this year. Hoping we grab him And he’s got a head like a dropped pie. Definite westie

    The rule was quite literally created when MCFG asked for it. I’m not one to sling my tin foil hat on often, but it was utter horse crap. They had no intention of forking over money to anyone else. It was simply a marketing spend for them with absolutely no intent to improve the league

    Is he being released? Haven’t read the email.

    Couldn't agree more. With one season in front of Shinji, he was fantastic. He still did the job with Bridge, Kalmar and Saba behind him in his second season. He might have been light on goals but he was also light on games in his second season due to the injury. We've not struggled to score goals under Babbel with a bunch of kids. Give Juric a classy CAM flanked by Duke and Yeboah - thats tasty.

    Typically I’d say that’s an insane move but you have to look at it in context. There’s sweet faaark available this year unless someone gets released, which also looks unlikely since the good options are all getting game time. Go foreign. We will still have 4 outfield foreigners to recruit.

    A few of the articles are saying he’s been told to go looking. If they don’t want a fee then we are fine. Unlikely but you never know. I suspect a Chinese club would still pay (is their window still open? Can’t remember when it closes). I’d imagine most European clubs won’t be an option since most will have made their moves in jan

    Absolutely. If we find that type of striker, it would be amazing

    But it did work the first time around. He scored fairly well in a team that wasn’t particularly setup to attack. Id take Tomi in a heartbeat under the cap. And we can do it right now. Sack a player under the cap, pay him off. We supposedly have a marquee allocation so cap space won’t be a concern for this season. Sprinkle a little extra on this season to sweeten the deal then get him under the cap next year. We’d have our front 3 sorted and could put the $$ into acquiring ACTUAL defenders, rather than the traffic cone more commonly known as Tarek Elrich

    Normally I wouldn’t. But there are no Aussies off contract this season I would say are even close to Vedran, let alone a small improvement. My only reason for taking a foreign keeper is if Ziggy gets fit and gets his papers. I could accept a ST, 2 cms and a CB on visas if Ziggy gets his **** together. Then use the last spot on a keeper. However if Vedran decides this is more than “just a job” as he put it, then I’m all for him
  10. Never even crossed my mind but thats probably not a bad shout. My only 2 thoughts against the idea: - His passing is ****ed - Half of what makes him passable as a pro footballer is his ability to get behind the line. Just a thought. But his defensive work ethic is great. Maybe he has a future there

    Loveable character and has a serious engine but he simply couldnt play to a PL game plan. His ability and effort would make him an amazing HAL CM. Definite potential for a long term marquee if we are prepared to pony up the benjamins
  12. You've been drinking the fluid out of glow sticks again, haven't you?
  13. That’s an enormous straw man. No one ever said he was quality or an asset. We congratulated a bloke on having a good game. Putting in effort absolutely counts in any league. But sure, let’s invite back Saba and Pio.

    I can only assume Fitz will follow. Elrich must know his days as a starter are numbered too
  15. I haven’t seen anyone praise him. He played a good game, I won’t rag on a bloke who put on a good performance for the red and black. My comment previously was to give some context about his final product in comparison to our other wingers.
