    Ronald Vargas - Vargas is Spanish for Burgundy

    via Imgflip Meme Generator

    First "marquee" I've seen us sign and think he looks ready to play.

    That finish he hit at training floating around on Facebook makes it a little too easy to get excited.

    Hope he hits the ground running come season start.

    also, the keeper never dived for any of those shots in training so do with that what you will.

    "Idiotic Eureka Moment" for me this morning.

    Looked up Roddy Vargas to see if there was a connection - didn't realise he was Australian. Always thought he was an import! Duh.

    Sounds like he's chasing a paycheck in China next year.
    Keen to see him play though!

    5 years ago today we signed Heskey on a million dollar deal
    http://www.theherald.com.au/story/34...h-jets/?cs=303

    5 years later and we signed a player who is likely to be far better, for less money.
    Maybe we may have learnt something from the period of shite

    Heskey was fantastic in his first season and the crowds were the highest they'd been since Season 2 and 3 following his signature. I don't think his impact should be underestimated.

    That's a big claim to put to on someone who is yet to competitively kick a ball for us.

    A big claim to say that Vargas is a techinically better player than Heskey?
    Because that's all I was meaning from that.

    I don't expect him to be the ticket sale master like Heskey was

    No worries. I misunderstood what you were saying. I thought you were talking about the player as the entire package - on field and off field.

    Might have been. His second season was distrupted by injuries, particularly in the first half of the season (which aligns with what you're saying). His absence gave Taggart his chance.

    It was definitely his second season

    First season he only got here late in the pre season and didn't play until the first HAL match

    Second season he got nailed in a behind doors match at AAMI v the Tards
