    Romario came over and played for Adelaide United for 4 games as a "guest" player.

    I think the "big" names (most likely to be known outside of Australia) at the moment are Juninho (Paulista), Mario Jardel (who cant get a look in at the club because everyone HATES him, management included), John Aloisi, Archie Thompson, Michael Bridges (of Leeds fame, before his knees went to shit), Stan Lazaridis (currently suspended for using some drug that has something to do with hair loss, I think), Craig Moore, Tony Popovic, Tony Vidmar, Danny Tiatto, Kevin Muscat, Joe Keenan (former Chelsea youth), Grant Brebner (Man Utd youth from mid 90s), Danny Allsopp (was at Man City, then some English lower league clubs for 6 or so years), Hayden Foxe (West Ham, Pompey, Leeds), Simon Lynch (former Scot U21, youth at Celtic), Richard Johnson (Watford for 12 years), Michael Ferrante (West ham youth, captained the side that won the FA Youth Cup 9-0 over Coventry), Ahmed Elrich (Fulham for a half season)... and that might be about it of possibly heard of players.

    The bulk is average and slightly above average Australian players, a small percentage of slightly above average foreign players who can't cut it in a proper league and another small percentage of potential quality future rep football Australians who will fuck off out of the league come the transfer window, same as last year (see Leijer, Beauchamp, Carney et al)

    Stupid salary caps

    Probley Robbie Cruze or Michael Zullo, both from Queensland.

    Both play on the wings.

    Zullo is one of, in not the quickest player in the league.

    Adelaide drew 1-1 with Perth last night.

    Bruce Djite and Nathan Burns for me. Both forwards. There are plenty of decent prospects though.... Vukovic looks like he is going to turn out half decent as far as the current crop of keepers go, Sarkies just needs to be more consistent to be a(n australian version of a) world beater too. Milligan is far too good for the A-League and fully expect him to join at least a lower EPL level team next season.

    Well they finally organised a half decent national competition with some television coverage. Took them long enough. Australians will follow a fair few sports if they're given it in a palatable format.

    ZULLLLO and Robbie Kruse are going to rape Sydney tonight.

    Skilligan will have to do it all himself again I think if Sydney are to get anything out of the game.

    Fucking Adelaide are shitting me to tears this year, Playing brilliantly a few weeks back, now all of a sudden we cant string more than 2 passes together. The last two matches have been amoung the worst I've ever watched.

    People might also know Paul Agostino, former 1860 Munich captain. Was suppose to be good, not living up to hype at the moment. Djite>Ago.

    I wish football in this country followed Warren and Murrays dreams. It's too fast, it lacks real skill and it focuses far too much on "passion".

    I love Les Murray btw.

    Les is a shadow of himself. I cant stand him and his pathetic little crew of wannabe Johnny Warrens. Everybody knows that this country hasnt got the best level of technical skill. Les and his mates should actually watch local football and by that I mean actually go down to a park on a Saturday morning and watch how different it is these days. The impact of the Socceroos WC campaign wont be seen for a few years yet but the signs are promising. Just look at Burns, Djite, Zullo, Kruse, Millgan and others who have developed in the last year.

    Football in this country is much better for having nothing to do with Lazlo these days. His pathetic racist rants every week are a joke.Not as bad as Foster but his legacy is being severely tarnished. His treatment of Butcher was embarrassing. Even more embarrassing was when one of his mates Branko gets a job and is shown up for being worse than TB.

    Ahahah I saw that too. To be fair, Harmse is a bit of a cunt.

    5-3 in the end.

    Hopefully the Victory actually win a game before the season's out. Fucking draws. Our attendance still shits all over everyone else's though. And the police/Telstra Dome management are fucking idiots. Sure, a sectioned off area for away fans is good, but WHY GIVE THEM LEVEL 1 OF THE NORTH END FFS

    Could be because the muzzas are a bunch of cunts who are giving the club a bad name. BWB are also dickheads for trying to stand and mosh on Level 3 of all places.

    Yeah that didn't really work.

    While I'm not in the BWB (they don't just let anyone in), they are fiercely against any dickhead behaviour because it makes the club look bad. It's the smaller groups (Werribee Line - I'm looking at you) that tack on to the North End that make the BWB, and in turn, the club look bad.

    What about these fine upstanding members of the support http://www.youtube.com/swf/l.swf?vid...rel=1&border=0

    HOOOOLIES!

    I actually feel for the majority of Victory supporters. I know quite a few of them off other forums who agree with pretty much what we are saying. I know the club is aware of the problems but they just cant get control of it due to useless coppers and fuckwits who think they are more important than the club.

    You dont post on the Tardboard by any chance? Possibly the biggest collection of spastics I have ever seen.

    Galaxy demolished the Phoenix on Saturday night 4-1. Beckham scored a penalty.

    Suppose thats what the Phoenix should have got after playing a match less that 24 hours before.

    Merrick has forgotten to play a midfield as well.

    8-0-2 is the future!

    He's trying to avoid comparisons with AFL. Sweepers and strikers only.

    Good win for the Nix on Friday night, beating Perth 3-0.

    Probley not going to win vs. Queensland this week, but upsets can happen.

    We've only got one home game left (v Wellington) then away to CCM, Queensland and someone else. Shite season, but I'm not joining the Eddie Merrick lynch mob. I don't really know what it was this season - maybe missing Fred too much

    Easily.

    5-4 Sydney beat Mariners.

    Amazing stuff, Sydney got a penalty in the last kick of the game to win it.

    Two on the trot for the Victory. Fucking hell.

    It's always you Sydney cunts that start it. Us Melbourne Victory fans would never stoop to such behaviour because it gives shames our sport.

    Just the two at the moment but I think they're getting a third in next year. This year it's Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United.

    Its ok if you like seeing little asian bastards rolling around on the floor for 90mins.

    Imagine watching Portugese teams without the talent but twice as much shit acting.

    Their supporters are a bit nutso though.

    Australia vs Qatar on Wednesday. Apparently the Qatarians are shitting themselves at the thought of the Euroboys coming back.

    If they dont come back we are in trouble. The locals only managed a draw with the Victory FFS.

    So all the superstars are coming back. Except for Harry who has been dropped

    We havent lost a World Cup Qualifier at home in 27yrs. An early goal would be enough I think. If its 0-0 at halftime we might be in a bit of trouble.

    Anyone support Melbourne Victory on here?

    Apparently you've had Stefan Moore down for a trial and he scored twice in a reserve match this week.

    Anyway he's a former Villa player and member of our all conquering youth team of 5 or 6 years ago. He's been pretty shit ever since, but he had potential once. Be interestsing to see how he gets on down under.

    Isn't he Luke Moore's brother? I remember the two of them tearing things to pieces in my old, old champ manager games

    I think Simmo would be as close to a Melbourne supporter as you would find, though I am not too sure how tapped into the news and transfer rumour mill he is

    Wages are going to be the problem I believe. Maybe a short term signing for the Champs League but apparently they havent got much room to move under the cap.

    oh those poor gypsies commuting home from sydney on the horse and buggy would have been most sad. As anyone knows Newcastle and the Hunter Valley are better than Gosford and The Central Coast.

    Just got back from the game. So fucking tired but cant sleep

    Got down there at 2 to find that, despite there being acres of space, they had labelled the parking at Moore Park as full and shipped us off to Randwick Racecourse. Took a wrong turn and ended up on a road behind it and decided to just park there instead of at the parking lot in the middle of the racecourse. 4km later (and with my level of woeful fitness, I think I was close to dying at some points), we joined the massive throng of people and headed inside. Tickets were for the supporters bay, spent the entire game screaming and jumping (once again, my level of fitness... ) and then walked back to the minibus.

    I am absolutely fucked. Knees and calves especially fucked. Throat most of all though. Going to be an interesting day at work tomorrow trying to do anything without a voice...

    Stefan Moore just got binned off by QPR though. I doubt he's asking for much, surely you can afford 3/4k per week?

    Joel Griffiths - Johnny Warren Medal
    Bruce Djite - Rising Star Award
    Gary Van Egmond - Coach of the Year
    Newcastle Jets - Fair Play Award (not a single red, all season, immense)

    In other news... the Phoenix are shaping up to be a defensive monster next season. Just completed the signing of Durante () and Jon McKain. If they can stay injury free, they will be the best centre back pairing in the league. No one else will come close

    SFC has sold:

    Musialik confirmed to Sydney FC.

    Where the fuck are they getting all of their money?!?!?! I call salary cap breach. Either that or they are only going to have a squad of 5 good players plus Aloisi then get the rest from the park on the way to each game.

    Gutted about Musialik

    Bumping this thread.

    Anyone else see the Phoenix game on friday? Absolutely dominated by Adelaide 6-1.

    Now Paston is estimated to be out for about a month with a rib injurey, so we will have to call up a replacement keeper.

    Adelaide are by far the best team in the comp IMO.

    Melbourne are average. Queensland inconsistent. Mariners average. Sydney are rubbish. Phoenix are rubbish. Perth are better than their position shows. Newy are hilariously bad.

    Did you see the Newcastle - Sydney game on the weekend, mj? Newcastle played beautiful football for about an hour before that capitulated. Intelligent runs, quick passing....



    and zero finishing. We could have been 3-1 up at the half but in the end were lucky not to lose 4-1

    Adelaide just have class all over the field.

    Phoenix vs. Perth should be a goody this week.

    Wow. You guys call that beautiful football?

    Some really nice lead up plays from both sides, but nothing to get too excited about for the most part. Sydney's lead up play from midfield was good, but I can't help but think Brosque is wasted just tucking in so the fullback can take his wasteful crosses. If you're going to play him wide in midfield, actually let him get himself into some wide advanced spaces.

    If Wanker Joel was up front for you boys you would have put at least one more away.

    Where is Griffiths anyway?

    Good win for the Phoenix, holding on... Just.

    Last years side would have let that lead slip for sure.

    Oh, he is back now. Had two weeks off after the send off against your lot. Milligan was back too. Apart from his almost super blunder in the first few minutes, Milligan was rather fantastic on Friday night.

    2 weeks for that kick?

    That's a bit rough. Dodd's retaliation was far worse.

    Any chance you can go to Fannies and keep him off the cones and disco biscuits?

    If he stays off them he may able to salvage his career. Talent but no brain that kid.

    Well, North Queensland Fury just lost the first competitive game of their history, losing 3-2 against Sydney FC. Robbie Fowler captained NQF, played the entire match and got a goal from the penalty spot.

    Other results this weekend so far were a surprise 2-0 win by Central Coast over defending champions Melbourne Victory and a 1-0 win by Adelaide United over the side who SOF will undoubtedly love, Sterjovski's Perth Glory.

    Brisbane Roar and Gold Coast United up yet, woop woop

    My beloved Jets against Wellington tomorrow

    GCU looked good in pieces tonight. Bit scary when you think that it wasn't their first choice keeper, they still have their Ivorian U21 international left back to get work clearance and Ryan Griffiths will join at the end of the Chinese season. They could honestly be a scary prospect for any team.

    True news. He was fantastic in the first half, pretty much disappeared in the second though.

    Still hate Aloisi though, former scummer.
