    Socceroos Transfers

    thread to discuss the movements of our socceroos/future socceroos.

    spira has moved from urawa red diamonds to some cashed up qatari club:

    Spiranovic Signs For Qatar Club


    ON THE DOTTED LINE...Al Arabi announce Spira move

    FRINGE Socceroo Matthew Spiranovic has sealed a move away from Urawa Red Diamonds to join Qatar club, Al Arabi, its website said today.

    Spiranovic, 24, has struggled for game time in the J.League recently after moving to Urawa from FC Nuremburg in 2010, initially on loan but making the move permanent later that year.

    Al Arabi's website today ran a picture of Spiranovic signing the deal to take him to the Middle East, subject to a medical on Tuesday morning.

    It's understood the defender is moving on a two year contract.
    being one of my favourite socceroos/fringe socceroos, i'm really upset with this move. not because of the money involved, and not the notion that he's moving to a club he's hoping to actually get gametime for, but because of how shit the qatar league is. he needs to be playing first-team at a decent club in a decent league.

    also that picture looks like one of the sketchiest deals gone down ever. the only thing missing from the picture is a briefcase opened towards spira, and some ak's being held.
    OK

    why? Looks pretty standard tbh. Club officials, hotel room/lobby, player. What's dodgy?

    well like i said, put a briefcase full of money in there & have those guys holding ak's & it wouldn't look that out of place.

    that scene looks like zohan is about to kick the door down.



    if you'd rather i just used the word racism in there somewhere, then feel free to take it that way also. but i'd imagine three dudes of any race/clothing/etc in the same stances, facial expressions and environment as that picture would look just as much like the guy at the back was holding a gun to the players back as it does now.

    carry on.
    OK

    Ease up.
    Just asking why you thought it looked dodgy.
    Looks like a very normal pose for a contract signing, some dudes at a desk, some dudes standing behind them.

    Journo for The Adelaide Advertiser has tweeted "A Socceroo has been presented to Adelaide" and reds fans are speculating... Burns is their current favourite, I think.
