  1. Chaddy I saw you mention Trent Sainsbury a few pages back. His name was one of the first that came to my mind when it comes to reasonably priced players based in europe (he's actually aussie). He's a solid pro and would be a great pairing with Lenihan. What stopped me mentioning him though was that I doubt he would leave PSV's starting 11 for us at this point in his career. Would be a great signing though no doubt. Given the current timeframes we now face I think if we can get Hanley over the line that would be a good outcome. Knows the clubs, would know a lot of the lads mainly Lenihan
  2. Yep Leao is on his way. In regards to UEFA as soon as it was known that that Champions League was not achieved (by 1 point) missing out on Europa League to get back in the FUP good books was an easy option. It allows further (reasonable) investment into the squad whilst primarily focusing on Serie A and reaching the top 4.
  3. Very Sad to see Cutrone leave Milan but the new Coach relies heavily on players with technical ability. Cutrone is more of a poacher and will run all day but technically needs improvement. Still Milan fans wanted him to stay but realise this may be a good move for all parties involved at this moment in time. The original plan was to sell Andre Silva to Monaco but that deal fell through.
  4. My God it's so good to have a manager like Tony on board after the tumultuous 8 or so years we have suffered. Yes 6m is a lot to spend relative to our historical spend over this period but I think this will be a shrewd piece of business. The one thing that appears evident is that all of the young players that are playing under Tony appear to be on an upward trajectory in terms of development and that bodes well for the future in terms of player value but more importantly the journey back to the Premier League. I'm trying not to get ahead of myself but there are a lot of positive signs collect
  5. Looks like Daniel Arzani is off to Celtic via a Man City loan. https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/celtic-and-manchester-city-close-to-arzani-deal-after-holding-talks Jamie Maclaren is currently fielding offers from a range of clubs/leagues but is yet to be granted (quite rightly in my opinion) a release from his club. https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/victory-land-honda-for-2-9-million-but-maclaren-wavering I guess Celtic would be a good option for him especially at his age given he will also gain experience in the CL but i was hoping in the off chance we may have been able to
  6. Of the 3 Aussie players i mentioned previously - Daniel Arzani - still no movement but things are obviously happening in the background. Would love the scenario of City signing him up and him being loaned to us but it may be a bridge to far now. Jamie Maclaren - https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/race-is-on-to-snap-up-in-demand-maclaren. Not the target man striker we probably need but he is a great finisher and wouldn't look out of place at Rovers. Still a possibility. Brandon Borrello - Signed for Freiburg in the Bundesliga - https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/bundesliga-bound-borrello-s
  7. I’m probably dreaming and it’s wishful thinking but could it be Daniel Arzani as the ‘Manchester City’ youngster. It looks as though he has been in negotiations with City for sometime now and maybe Roma’s late interest has stalled the move. I read that in the case that City signed him they were going to loan him out to adjust. Probably a 1 + 1 = 4 scenario and a lot of maybes but there you go ? https://www.news.com.au/sport/football/report-italian-club-roma-chasing-socceroo-daniel-arzani/news-story/f8bf7b1032a34e7ebe617a518c20d69c https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/coupler.foxsports.com
  8. I mentioned him in my previous post on this thread as one of the three Aussie players i think we should be having a go at signing. This guy is raw but it is clear he has huge potential and now (perhaps post world cup) would be the time to try and sign him.
  9. I'm going to suggest a few Aussies worth looking at that based on seeing them play many times. These players fit the young and hungry mould Mowbray has mentioned and posses the talent to become solid championship players and could further develop into decent premier league players in the future. Jamie Maclaren: I've mentioned him previously but if you are looking for a zippy striker that has a decent conversion rate than he would represent excellent value. https://www.transfermarkt.com/jamie-maclaren/profil/spieler/173591 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Maclaren B
  10. I mentioned this about a week ago on the Facebook page but we should consider signing Jamie Maclaren from hibs if we can. He’s actually on loan from Darmstadt (Germany) and just scored another 3 against Rangers. He played for my Hometown club Brisbane Roar for a couple of seasons and is a real goal poacher. Scored a heap of goals for us. With Dack as the supply line he would score plenty and would feed off Graham as well. He’s at the right age to start hitting his peak. He’s also a former Rovers youth player to boot!
  11. To the tune of No Rain by Blind Melon All i can say is that we're gonna win this game We've gone and signed the mighty Payne And all i can do is go and watch Charlie Mulgrew We're gonna win by two cause it's our game It's our gaaaaaaammme Or something along those lines
  12. Why am i not surprised/shocked http://www.espnfc.com.au/swedish-allsvenskanliga/story/3225578/dickson-etuhu-questioned-by-police-in-sweden-match-fixing-case-reports
