    Squad Development 2019/20 Part 1

    Not looking good for seeing Shinji Okazaki here going by this report. Pity as I would have liked to have seen him in the A League. https://www.foxsportsasia.com/football/asian-football/1103270/outgoing-leicester-city-star-shinji-okazaki-responds-to-rumours-of-a-transfer-to-thai-league-club-buriram-united/ I hope that we will still be getting two marquees of quality.

    Wanderers play Mountie Wanderers Saturday night, Mark Bridge should be playing for Mounties I would imagine. I haven't been to Edensor for a very long time, what's the parking situation like and what size crowd normally attends these matches? Thanks in advance.

    In the worst case scenario where Zeigler doesn't get Aussie citizenship quickly enough, what positions would you use the last three foreign spots on? My three would be centre back, central midfield and striker. In the No 10 role Troisi might be a chance with Muscat gone. When I look at who we have at the moment and the positions needing filling I feel slightly pessimistic but hopefully that will disappear after the signings become known.

    On the subject of recruitment, as mentioned before Christian Gentner could be a central midfield possibility, although he is currently involved in relegation playoffs for Stuttgart until 28 May. It looks like we need probably two more centre backs as well, one likely being foreign. There's a heap from Bund 2 coming off contract, hard to pick which one the most likely, this guy could be a possibility plays in Kruse's team. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/patrick-fabian/profil/spieler/41319 Another German I found playing in Denmark looks like he has the head to fit in at the Wanderers, has some captaincy experience as well. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/benedikt-rocker/leistungsdaten/spieler/116272/plus/0?saison=2016
  7. I personally think Albo is the best chance the ALP have of winning the next election. You need someone the typical Aussie can relate to. I don't think Tanya Plibersek and Chris Bowen fit into that category unfortunately. My personal favourite is Penny Wong but she also doesn't fit in to the correct image.
  8. Mack, based on a brief polite on my behalf engagement with the Jets fan forum, I'd have to say they are. I made a serious recruitment suggestion based on my opinion of a certain player and got literally torn to shreds by a couple of them. All the best next season guys. Obviously there's something seriously wrong in certain parts of this country.

    Very well credentialed, has played most of his career in the Bundesliga. Lets have a few more signings like this please!

    What does this say about our recruitment strategy or the standard of the A League? He was decent at Adelaide but this season has been assistant coaching and playing in a Bundesliga 2 second eleven team.

    Going way back, like the Butthole Surfers version too.

    Just sign another foreign defender if a decent Aussie isn't available, such as Sainsbury on loan as suggested earlier. Need defenders who can either pass accurately out of defence or hoof when the occasion warrants.

    One more keeper we can cross off the list.

    Okay who do suggest then? I think somewhere on this forum it was suggested that we were going to sign a keeper who had player for the Socceroos in the past, someone like Adam Federici possibly?

    I think you're being a bit harsh on Izzo as far as the third goal is concerned. He's a better, steadier option than Vedran without a doubt, which is what we need. There's also plenty of good mentality among their players as well which has been missing at the Wanderers.
