    O?Neill is finished at this level Red, this should not be a surprise at all, he would have to be the slowest midfielder in the game

    O'Neill doesn't fit the mould of how the jets play. 2 fullbacks that get extremely high, require a quicker midfielder.

    Good guy, decent player just doesn't fit the system under Stanton. He would go well in a team with 2 natural holders possibly in a 4231 system.

    They mentioned mauragis to mariners on the match broadcast. Can't blame the guy.

    I was sad when we let Al Taay go, I think he suits high fullbacks better than most in the league, even if he's not flashy or great on the ball. Proper defensive lynchpin for everyone else to position themselves off.

    Agree totally with all your points re Mo. He also was a great talker on the park and had a bit of mongrel in him when the going got a little dirty. We hadn't had that in the middle of the park for a long time. he's been pretty handy for Wello.

    Just wanted to round up a couple things I've seen recently.

    We have obviously lost Hoffy to retirement and O'Neil, Buhagair and Mauragis to other clubs. We are expected to lose Jenkinson and Barthomier which is no surprise. Apart from Mauragis, think most can agree there isn't a lot lost in this lot.

    Off contract players Grozos, Bayliss, Goodwin and Timmins have offers in front of them. Happy with all 4 of those, Grozos and Timmins have proven themselves this season, either of them with a more experienced midfield should have us sitting pretty in that area. Bayliss has real potential, but I would like to see him put into the position of a guaranteed sub next season as opposed to a starter. Goodwin I still like, but he needs to prove himself this coming season

    Piscopo, Stynes, Cancar and Weir are still unclear. I wish Piscopo was reliable. We are a better team with him on the pitch and I don't know if we'll find someone as good as him on his best days. Cancar I'm also sad to see go if he does, but we do need someone more experienced and Natta is clearly the preferred player. Stynes and Weir leaving doesn't concern me

    Jets are expected to confirm three recruits once the ownership takeover has been finalised. Can only hope we're announcing an experienced CB, an experienced midfielder and some attacking player, either winger or CAM

    Grozos and Timmins can toddle off to some NPL where there abilities are better suited. Grozos has one good game every two months and his set piece delivery is worse than some under 10's kid. As for Timmins if i had a dollar for every time he turned the ball over this season i would not have to go to work for the next six months.

    Pisocopo is more injury prone Bridge ever was so he can go bye bye also. Club cant afford to be paying a bloke of his ability n remuneration to sit in the stands more often than not because he is too fragile.

    Disagree with Grozos, agree with Timmins. If we had a DM who could stay in position, unlike O'Neill who doesn't seem to know where to centre of the park is, he wouldn't need to do the work of two midfielders all game. Find a DM, let him float up and down one side of the pitch being tidy on the ball, with the odd wonder pass, and enough tactical nous to not let his man get away from him. You don't need 3 shiny midfielders, you need 2 or 3 that can do their roles well and Grozos can do a roll better than plenty of others that have come and gone here.

    This is my feelings on Grozos. Has the potential to be a good A-League level player if partnered with an actually good CDM, which he hasn't had the opportunity to do since he's been at our club. I think Timmins as a bench player is plenty serviceable for mine.

    Seen some loose links to Tom Aldred for us today. Haven’t watched a lot of brissy games apart from what they played against us but he’s experienced, not too over the hill it seems

    Even if its one who has been poor for Roar all season and so so slooooow, Been turned inside out all season. Look forward to one half of our backline carrying this bloke and Ingham.

    Yeah, this bloke is all ****/mouth and zero ability. Gives away free kicks every other minute and the only time he doesn't foul is when the player is too far ahead of him to reach, at which point he turns and abuses his team mates for him getting beaten so easily.

    I'd rather play with 10 than play with him in the team.

    I?d say no going off what I?ve seen of him, not a stand out player in a poor Roar team who concede easily
