Jacob Burns says it's money related, but all these departures are convenient. Has Poppa gone too hard?

Of course it is money related. He was probably offered a decent chunk of change and at his age, it was too good to turn down.

I doubt it has anything to do with Poppa. Nobody really knows what happened with Keogh. Spiranovic might stay. Davidson was always going to be hard to keep a hold of as is Ikon who I don't expect to be at the club after this season.

Heard keogh has been a bit of a bad influence with a lot of the young boys when it comes to partying

Yeah Lowry is 29 but I guess I thought coming so close last year, some players would want to stay and give it another go for the ultimate success.

Playing so well last season and finishing top of the league by a lot put our players in the shop window, which probably hasn't happened as much in the past with mid-table finishes. Comes with success that others, some with more cash, want our players.

I'm still bullish on our chances this year. Fornaroli, Castro and Ikon is a pretty scary front three, and no doubt Popa will have our defence looking solid soon enough.

Interesting to see that former Roar Scholarship player and Australian under 17 captain Bryce Bafford played for us last night still just 18 years and by the reports seemed to be up and about last night. Seems he has played mainly as a striker but last night, apparently, was on the wing. A Perth boy, so would be good to have him back.

Warland played again, and now I see he is on the website: https://www.perthglory.com.au/player/riley-warland#!/overview.

Did anyone get down?

Tbh I don't know a hell of a lot about him. They seem upbeat about the signing though. Any word on Spiranovic?

Apparently he had some issues with a bit of soft drink back in the UK so hopefully he’s not continuing his addiction.

The kit publicity yesterday got me excited for the season ahead!

Just hoping our new-look defence has had the chance to gel and that Ikonomidis is fit and ready to go.

Fornaroli would surely be pumped to play a competitive game.

It probably was right but instead of seeing 2 5 second clips of the decision i wanted to see the whole thing.

O'Donavan looked to be starting from an offside position.

Call was right. He was on. All we had to do was clear it and the whistle goes.

Brisbane deserved that. They were all over us in the 2nd half. Midfield was sloppy but we should have taken our chances in the 1st half.
