Re: Who's signed for next season

Personally I find it quite interesting. If a young South Australian gets plucked from obscurity, missing AUFC on the way, we laud the vision of the club who found them and send a few pointed remarks in the direction of Coopers. When AUFC do it suddenly it is all dark mutterings with visions of hood...

Re: New rectangular stadium in Adelaide?

I just can't see how you can justify it with only commitment from AU. You need the ARL and NRL to commit to 3-4 games each year for many years, or you need something amazing like the domes in Japan that host football and baseball (which would be concerts and basketball in this instance) I'd love a ...

Re: 2018/19 Round 2 vs Melbourne City

Elsey being managed for the cup final?

Came in to the season knowing we were light on at the back, didn't take long to feel that.
But dont we want to give the local kids an opportunity ?

Re: Who's signed for next season

We are for instance talking to several (Chinese media) parties who are interested in following the player (Chen) in his development in Australia. “There would be a lot of interest, because football is a government policy in China and to promote and improve football they understand they need foreign...

Re: Who's signed for next season

Not ideal (to say the least). But I won’t write any player off until they prove they’re rubbish on the pitch. And the lack of DM cover isn’t down to this one signing. Gertjan has shown in his signings, in his team selections and in his substitutions that he’s completely focused on attacking. I’m ha...

Re: Who's signed for next season

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EG_ARCgU0AA9K6y.jpg This screengrab from the Red Army FB group has been doing the rounds on Twitter. I'm sorry but this is a disgrace. There is now way this guy will be good enough and there's no way he'll be selected and played on merit. Simply having this guy on the bo...

Re: Who's signed for next season

So if the owners are looking to turn this into a money spinner, can we expect them to try and influence selections to get this kid on the park and in the shop window? For all the really positive things that have gone on in the offseason, this seems like a fairly sizeable misstep on face value. That...

Re: Who's signed for next season

An attacking mid? Thats come out of left field. Piet mentioned chen is one of the most talented Quingdao youth prospects, given they have produced 2 players for the chinese youth national team its possible he may have some talent. Unless one of us can read mandarin his playing history will not be av...

Re: Adelaide United v Sydney FC Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Based on the quality shown by teams so far in round 1 I think AUFC have much to be hopeful for.

Obviously it only round 1 but i think we may be bolters this season .

Re: Adelaide United v Sydney FC Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Oh and while not a fan of VAR i do however really like this new offside hawkeye!

Due to the tech the player is either on or off, can conclusively tell if a player is a few mm offside. ( much the harpers disgust)

VAR doesnt work with contentious situations where interpretation is everything though

Re: Adelaide United v Sydney FC Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Some thoughts - I like Verbeeks intent, more like Gombau. Kurz would have started Opseth and Maria, Lia would have got 90min and we'd have a point. I'll take the youngsters and an entertaining game. - Where would D'Arrigo be now if Kurz gave him some minutes ahead of Lia last year? - I'd drop Elsey...

Re: Adelaide United v Sydney FC Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Very promising start IMO. I cant say ive seen an AUFC ever have the same hunger for the ball as tonight, not even under the gombau era, infact the way we closed down with only 10 men was impressive. Sure it allowed gaps but i can support a team with that kind of intent. Remember we started without M...

Re: Adelaide United v Sydney FC Match Day Jamboree!!!©

How is this playing out in the Fox commentary box? Is it the same east coast orientation? On any issue they are still unerringly pro Sydney.
