Re: WS Wanderers v Adelaide United Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Equal 4th! Not playing particularly pretty but the learning curve for the kids is steep and the talent is clearly there. Its just a question of can they click before the season is gone. With the finishing of Goodwin and both Toure brothers I think we can manage a few smash and grabs to keep us in th...

Re: Who's signed for next season

Many may disagree but Im very impressed with the way the club has handled the recent 12 months! In what has been a trying time for all clubs and leagues around the world AUFC management have pivoted from the “woe is me” mentality that would be very easy to accept during these conditions and instead...

Re: Adelaide United v Brisbane Roar Match Day Jamboree!!!©

The salary cap is designed to reward our home grown players, if Mr Van der Pol is willing to out his hand in his pocket.... Homegrown Players – A Club can spend an unlimited amount on 4 Australian Players aged 23 or younger that have come through the Club’s youth system; Loyalty Players – A Club ca...

Re: Adelaide United v Brisbane Roar Match Day Jamboree!!!©

Im at peace with our bare bones squad heavily weighted towards youth. The reality is the club and leagues future is not certain given the volatility going on around us at the moment which will likely be a constant for a season or two yet. Though this is a reality in every top tier league around the ...

Re: Who's signed for next season

Val seems to be sticking up for his boy, as he constantly does for his favourites. Sure the club gave him their blessing to leave, but that was months ago so leaving your hometown club this late in preseason simply to move to another aleague club is a terrible look for him. I am secretly relieved I ...

Re: Who's signed for next season

With the strong leaning towards youth this year with some impressive quality and experience through the spine there is much about this squad that reminds me of the premiership season. If all stay fit a top 4 birth is very possible. However as with all younger players they can be unpredictable. A bre...

Re: Who's signed for next season

Easily the highest credentialed signing in the clubs history excluding romario. My initial thought was that this was cassio mk 2, an overlapping defender. Looking at our list though dm is most likely giving us a spine of experience troisi , lopez , jakobsen and elsey. A wise move I feel with such a ...

Re: Who's signed for next season

I think any long standing fans of aleague clubs need to acknowledge both that the league and each one of its clubs have changed for good. The money just is not there from a corporate level all the way down to each clubs revenues. Realistically we should expect mid to upper level players leaving for ...

Re: Who's signed for next season

I have no doubt the club did everything in its power to keep him, we can jump to knee jerk conclusions with absolute minimal infomation but the fact remains the club is committed to youth not just for philisophical reasons but also financial reasons. Its in the interests of the ownership group to se...

Re: Coronavirus Football Cancellations

Hate to say it Blahblah, but we pretty much called this mess back in February. We pretty much nailed it sadly. If little old us can process basic info and forecast future risks Im struggling to understand how sporting clubs , leagues and politicians can claim to be blind-sighted by the situation. I ...

Re: Awer Watch

Its great to see kids who have gone through the aufc youth system become adults and conquer other countries. Even better when they are genuinely a great person with a story to tell like Mabil. He should get more mainstream media attention in SA imo, a great player and great role model. More Mabil le...

Re: RE: Re: Members forum June 2020

They made it pretty clear that there were some behavioural issues they do not want with the next coach, things like dressing down players at press conferences and other obvious things they weren't happy with. That's good to hear, I didn't hate Verbeek but he lost me a bit when he did these things. ...

Re: Season’s finished? Season starting!

There is something very reassuring in seeing Carl Veart in charge of the first team. Hard to argue. Everyone is craving a steady ship in all aspects of life and Carl certainly projects that sense of surety. I feel like Valkanis is the guy long term. He has followed van't schip around since city, to...
