That's why the A-League is largely a joke. It sucks, we should be aiming to be the premier league in the Asian confederation, not a stuffing circus.

Every code has gone down this path and it's pretty much flopped every single time. The AFL poaching Falou & Hunt was initially a sugar hit that got a heap of publicity but the awful state of the Suns now shows if there's no substance behind it then there's no legacy then it's a complete waste of time and money.

That would be a massive get  :o.

We've signed German centre-back Georg Niedermeier while Nick Ansell is returning.

Victory front three:

Honda - Maclaren - Kosta

 :shh

Would love another box to box mid but we are looking poo hot as we stand. Kev won't find anyone who would effectively replace Valeri but we're still probably a bit thin on the bench in terms of midfielders.

Honda - Maclaren - Kosta
Valeri/Brox - Troisi - Antonis
Brown - Ansell - Niedermeier - Roux
Thomas

Are you talking about Soccer or Formula One?

We have to as we have no striker. Hopefully having Honda on the team would make us a little more attractive for any target.
