    He's played a total of 285 mins of football since he left Victory for just one goal.

    I know it's a tougher league but he's going to struggle to get a good deal anywhere based on that form.

    I wouldn't take the risk on him - especially for the sort of coin he'd be chasing.

    It is the HAL

    Berisha would still be a good player in it for the next 5 years FFS

    Would sign him in a heartbeat I would

    Not gonna effect us anyway. We got no money anyway

    Probs could do worse for a season.
    He had a knack of scoring and being a C...
    IMO a starting team Consisting of boogs, NTS, Ugar, Hoolahan, Petratos, Berisha and our other dude looks like a pretty formidable spine.........2 years ago when in form.

    Bloody hell mate, did the bloke root your mrs or something?

    Don't know i can ask her i guess. Very average footballer who should be back in a NPL. If he was even a smidgen above mediocrity he would be ( correct me if i am wrong ) not on his 6th opportunity from 5 different clubs. I would rather see more Millars , Murrays and co given there chance than Fitzgerald.

    I went to the game last Thursday night and felt comfortable with my assessment that he has very limited ability, Clearly an assessment shared by no less than half of the clubs in the A League.

    Nothing personal but bloke has had enough chances.

    Yep sure did. But therein lay the issue, Bloke is only good for half a dozen above par efforts every 12 months and he just used up one of those. 5 left.

    Ray Gatt just wrote on twitter that Hoolihan has just signed with Sydney FC.

    Fair enough if you’re judging him on what you’ve seen playing for us but imo it’s irrelevant what he’s done at other clubs. There could be various reasons why a player has or hasn’t succeeded. Any player should start from scratch imo.

    You could easily argue while he’s gone through a few clubs, he’s also won a few comps (I think) & been signed by some decent coaches along the way. So you can probably swing it both ways.

    Thank **** he played well tonight, made writing this easier for me lol

    Fitzy has won 2 premierships and one FA cup with 3 different clubs. If he is as poor a player as some on here are suggesting then he is one lucky bastard and knows how to be at the right place at the right time. For that luck alone he is worth having at the club. I sense silverware coming our way.

    He has been signed by some impressive coaches, Laurie McKinna, Ange Postecoglou, Graham Arnold and Josep Gombau. Only leaving those clubs after those coaches have moved on. And now Ernie obviously sees some potential in him.

    I’m thinking that his knockers on here probably are better at spotting potential than those coaches, however I’m still going to give him a chance and cheer him on while ever he is wearing our jersey.

    Reality check. Bloke did have a good game the other night no doubt about it and received plenty of plaudits. But lets not cherry pick here and gloss over the fact not one of those plaudits came without a footnote making reference to his inability to be consistent hence the multiple clubs and more game days in the stand or starting on the bench than in the starting 11.

    And BTW welcome to the forum Nick

    And two of those coaches you mentioned coached the Gypos so there opinion counts for squat on this forum. They are gypo lovers and can go take a hike to put it nicely.

    2 worst coaches in A-League history. never won anything, plus they are gypos.

    in Fitzy's defence, Nabs was an inconsistent f*ck who hadn't lived up to his potential before he came here too (and he owes Ernie a bit more respect than that clusterf*ck of an excuse he gave for heading straight to the Tard$$$), Fitzy's destiny is at his own feet - whether Fitzy steps up and shows his best or not, I'm definitely not going to jump on the 'he's sh*t' bandwagon just yet unless he doesn't step up and take a few gypos out Kitto style during the season... (same goes for Millar - that ball to tee up McBreen should be punishable by firing squad...)

    Are people on here trying to justify Fitzgerald as an actual footballer or something? (hint: he's more likely just someone who shows up to our training sessions in boots and gets picked to fill in once in a while)

    And better still, are people getting excited by how much he didn't suck against Edgeworth??? This year is going to be hilarious if that's the level we have set the bar at. (Well you guys have set it, my target is to watch McKinna cry in front of the cameras after packing his bags/potato sack and driving his caravan back down the F3. More than happy to lose every game to make sure this happens)

    Nick has never been good enough for any club to want him to hang around bar the Gypos. No wonder some on this forum love him. The place reeks of food stamps, durries and lynx body spray. Just waiting for sauce bottles to show up to really rub it in.

    As much as i didn't want to, **** i laughed at this.

    Just judge the bloke/any player on what he does for our club, not what he has or hasn't done in the past. The guy seems to be getting lined up as the scapegoat for the season already.

    It's posts like this that confirm for me that caravan parks should not have internet access.
