Leckie finally had a game without scoring. He really has the commentators confounded (plenty of Bundesliga out here).

Moving to the capital seems to have sparked something in Leckie.
If he can score for the `roos´ we will be most grateful.

Hopefully he can play as a winger for the Roos rather than a wing back.

Defensive duties really hurting his chance to do some damage.

So where are they for this season.....

Ben Garuccio has quickly become a regular left back for Hearts and seems to be enjoying his time in Scotland
Dylan McGowan was loaned out by Pacos de Ferreira to Gangwon in the K-League where he hasn't really featured
Awer Mabil was on loan in Portugal, and getting game time, however seems to be recalled to Denmark for FC Midtjylland and will hopefully feature in their season (which kicks off next week).
Mathew Leckie is still with Hertha Berlin with their season starting this weekend, though he may yet feature in the DFB Cup tomorrow against Entracht Brraunschweig
Jimmy Jeggo made the move to Austia Wien whose season is yet to begin. The match against Sturm Graz should be interesting.
Iain Ramsay made the move from the Philippines to Malaysia where he plays for Felda United and still getting called up for the Azkals. Hopefully he gets to shine for them in the upcoming Suzuki Cup.
Bruce Djite was with PSM Makassar in Indonesia. Given the vagaries of Indonesian football (such as not getting paid) he seems to have moved on and appears a free agent.

Another season gone and it will be interesting to see what Awer does. He had a good year in Portugal on loan and followed with a cracking year in Denmark, coming up with 6 goals and 11 assists in all competitions. Midtjylland will want to keep him, not least as they are playing in the Europa League, however I would not be surprised if clubs from bigger leagues are circling.

Jimmy Jeggo finished another season in Austria and will also be playing in the Europa League next season. I can't see him moving on from Austria Wien, particularly since he only just arrived from Strum Graz.

Riley McGree will be back to Brugge and hopefully staying in Belgium and getting some game time. After two loan spells I am not sure of their plans for him, but given he is only 20 there may be an eye for some further development opportunities, so another loan cannot be ruled out.

Mathew Leckie had a quieter year with Hertha Berlin so it will be interesting to see whether he stays in the capital or moves on. He still adds value to the squad however he will be one to keep an eye on over the transfer window. A move within Germany is entirely possible.

Iain Ramsay's globe trotting exploits continue as he is now playing with Sukothai in Thailand. He has only just moved there from FELDA in Malaysia and no doubt enjoying life.

Dylan McGowan has moved on from the K-League to Denmark where he is playing for Vendsyssel FF, based in the North of the country.

Ben Garuccio had a decent year with Hearts, making 23 appearances in all competitions. I am not sure why he didn't feaure more often, injuries or form, as good left backs are not exactly common as muck. There appears to be a spare spot on our roster should Ben be tiring of the Scottish weather, though I hope he sticks it out and features more regularly in 2019-20 season given he is still only 23.

Sadly, Isiais is off to Qatar. Sad for us, fantastic for his family's financial future. We will be keeping watch!

Definitely one of the highest level a player we've had at our club, yet one of the biggest flops.

Its a bit of an AUFC cliche but I genuinely believe that he would have dominated with better service. Not too many visa players go on to a top 5 league after playing in the HAL.

16 games and 3 goals isn't even that bad a return for some of our strikers haha. Still have fond memories of the assist to Mark Ochieng.

That assist definitely sticks out for me too.

And yes the service was diabolical

I'm watching Vikings at the moment and I came across this little fact.

Marco Ilsø who plays Hvitserk in the TV series Vikings is the younger brother of our own ex-player Ken Ilsø.

They actually had an article about it here in the Advertiser not long after he arrived in Adelaide. Val must have googled him when he arrived ;) there was also another article when his brother came here to visit.
