Premier League (6/9)



  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 who he would be partnering up with so It wouldn't take him long to get up to speed. The big plus for me is that he is a defender who isn't afraid to stick his head in when needed and that's something we are lacking to a degree at the moment. He's also a vocal player so hopefully that improves with his acquisition. Madon - I don't post often but read this message board religiously everyday. Keep posting whatever info you get mate, right or wrong it's appreciated. It's obvious your head/heart's in the right place and you are not taking the piss when posting what you've heard.
  2. 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 collectively that indicate we are on the right path.
  3. 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 snap him up. Not sure where Maclaren's head is at but it's safe to say based on Tony's criteria he's not being considered.
  4. 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-signs-for-freiburg He is recovering from an ACL injury but would have been a great Winger/Striker option.
  5. 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.au/api/v1/article/amp/football/socceroos/italian-club-roma-are-believed-to-be-interested-in-daniel-arzani/news-story/4a68420d49d7405457d08f580b93741d
  6. 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.
  7. 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 Brandon Borrello; Can play on either wing and after acclimatizing to European conditions, started becoming a feature of the starting Kaiserslautern team in Germany. Admittedly the team got relegated to the German 3rd tier this season but he is a really decent young player in the making. He would adapt well to the english game as he has pace and is a real tenacious player. Can play on either wing and scores goals as well. https://www.transfermarkt.com/brandon-borrello/profil/spieler/293592 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandon_Borrello Daniel Arzani Has recently been named A-League young footballer of the year and has been called up to the preliminary Socceroos world cup squad at 19 years of age. This guy is still a bit raw but it is clear for everybody who has seen him play he has huge potential. Creates goals and also contributes he would be one to pounce on now while his value is attainable and would almost definitely spike in value under the right conditions. This one is a bit of a risk but in my view a risk worth taking. Can play on either wing or as a central attacking midfielder. https://www.transfermarkt.com/daniel-arzani/profil/spieler/399997 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Arzani I don't expect everyone to get excited about the above players as they are still relatively unknowns but i have mentioned/suggested Aaron Mooy and Tom Rogic in the past prior to them establishing themselves in europe and i think the above players have the potential to achieve a similar status as decent players in the upper tiers of English Football.
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. As a Brisbane Roar fan I've been hugely impressed with Maclaren and didn't even know he was a former Rover! He's received a call up to the Socceroos squad so he's definitely on the right path. I fear we will lose him at some stage but if/when we do I hope it's to a decent club in Europe as apposed to Asia or the Middle East. He certainly has a bright future!
  12. Hi Bankok Rover, just wanted to say thanks for your efforts and hope your endevours turn out to produce the escape we desperately need
