    I wouldn't sign Naj. He's one of those peaked in high school type players.
    He's got no ticker, pulls out of challenges, and does nothing defensively.
    If he was banging in 10 goals a season maybe - but he's not.

    Plus we don't have a dm or cm combo that is capable of covering for him when he clocks off defensively

    Connor Chapman would be brilliant if we could get him.

    He's a very well balanced player both in defence and attack - as well as being fearless.

    Can hit a mean free kick as well when given the opportunity.

    This sums hims up nicely. If we are to have a season requiring significant improvement Naj is not the answer. This club clearly lacks a De Villa, Ninkovic style player.

    It is the one bleeding obvious of this campaign that we have lacked a genuine creative style player to assist with a few meat pies themselves and supply that service suitable to Roy's game.

    I am jot sure what is going to happen at the back next season, Both NTS and Boogs would be taking up significant cap space in dollar terms so does the club look to set them free and have Donarchie return and find him a suitable partner at the back that comes cheaper.

    We wanted 3 players in return and got 1. What a bunch of weak pricks we have. Mind you we are run by the owner of WSW so i shouldnt be surprised. They should fold us so we can all get on with our lives

    Think i might make other plans for Saturday now and the remaining home games, As pointed out above in Buddha's post we were at one point holding out for more yet we seem to have gone backwards on this deal for obvious reasons.

    Mattiske , Lederer and the rest of them can get the f$%k out of the club. Clearly there is a conflict of interest and you can bet your last two bob Mattiske was appointed knowing full well where his bread is buttered and to not be obstructional on matters like picking the eyes out of the squad to strengthen the owners real commitment club.

    Screwed again we have been.

    Good luck Mattiske with your membership target of 10k next season. You will be lucky to get a third of that.

    There is what 4 games. Stevie was leaving for free in the end of year. So he’s an asset worth zero to us. With bugger all games less they converted a worthless asset into a decent young player moving forward. I think it was good result.
    Just cause we wanted 3 players doesn’t mean we will get it. Stevie ain’t Messi he isn’t worth 3 players in any way.

    Huh?
    3 players?
    Ugaboogaman has signed there for next year, we have what, less than 10 games left and hes been injured/underperforming (for his level) for 6 weeks.
    Id say a half decent Odocherty is about as good as anyone could hope for under the circumstances.

    You do also realise that we could easily have gotten more players in, you know, the ones we already have on our books that we don't want back here for whatever reason.

    Club aint taking on more paychecks in this environment. Deal with what we've got.

    These negotiations have been ongoing for a couple of months now and yet with 4 games to go our pissweak board submit and give him up. Simply rolled over for a half baked injury prone player. Laughable

    If you read the full Dillon article and take the content of it as true ( yes i acknowledge we are talking about Dillon ) He states

    " Pressure was placed on the Jets to expedite his release during the current transfer window."

    Who has the power, presence and influence at both clubs to apply that pressure ?.Lederer perhaps ?.

    I get the case put forward that Ug is going anyway but this dead set fly's in the face of the no conflict of interest claim these blokes heap on us like we are some sort of stupid.

    Is there really a quartet of other clubs owners ?, Does the fourth mystery funder really exist or is it Lederer's money hence a split of 50% Lederer and the other two 25%.

    Probs best to give the club a wide berth til we are in the hands of truly impartial and transparent ownership.

    It won't make any difference Stanny the club is never going to be successful again. We will only be here as long as we can be used to test / trial low budget foreigners, develop kids, and take in injured players or underperforming ones so our owner overlords can optimise their teams rosters.

    We will get to keep the shit and have anyone with talent / promises taken away from us.

    Koutroumbis would be my guess at the next player our "board" mysteriously decides to part ways with.

    You can bet your left one both of them will be in red and black by the back end of next season.

    Perhaps the club can place a clothing bin at the main entrance in the event Lederer and John T's under performing coach Carl also requires the shirts off our backs. Mattiske can wash em and hand deliver them to his masters down at WSW HQ.

    IMO the fourth is a proxy for Lederer using Lederer coin meaning the split controlling the club is effectively 50% Lederer and the the remaining two parties 25% each.

    I don't think for one moment the Stevie deal happens if we were controlled with equal interest by ALL other club owners, Not just a select few with an element of anonymity involved.

    Makes no sense for Gus to go there and warm the bench

    Warm the bench, You think WSW are going into next season with the same salary cap busting midfield they have now ?.

    You don't think Carl also told Bernie that Cox would have head home by now and he would be his first pick 9 every week.
