    If only Bernie could earn the respect that Ali has in these parts, we could have a good year

    Call me cynical but i reckon a deal will be done to acquire the club 5 mins to midnight before the new season. The timing providing new owners with an excuse to write this season off and thus not fund a reasonable squad for this season.

    Given Ug was quoted as " not wanting to be part of another rebuild " and there was commentary around this current mob of Sydney businessman sending a rep up some many weeks ago now to talk to the players and there vision you would think if there was any sense of urgency to get cracking on investing in this years squad the handover would have been done by now.

    Between the ownership situation and the non auto renewal process for past members i can see a <5000 membership total this season.

    Everyday the "new owners" wait to purchase the club, the price drops. They'll wait until we are on the cusp of folding before signing the deal, as any smart business would do.

    But that's if there is anyone willing to buy us at all.

    You are not cynical. Now I also do not understand what is happening in the world in general. If there is a mess in all areas, it is not surprising that this has affected sports as well. It seems to me that the priorities have partially shifted and there is already more attention to health and safety, maintaining your business than developing sports.

    If the rumours are true about ownership having arthur pappas lined up to take over i can imagine pappas being keen to leave ange's side in the j-league without assurances to bring in some decent foriegners

    Big step up if a couple of the trialists get contracts, Selden playing Canberra NPL and Jack Armson playing NPL2 with Bonnyrigg. He must have went well against the Jets
