peternorth who is worse - morono or Corey brown?
To quote alien vs predator, whoever wins, we lose

We have been poor all season in all competitions no doubt .

Felt it was an interesting hypothetical.
Ie how good are the Chinese players on their own
Once upon a time we told the world come to the A league, we have great weather, friendly people and a terrific lifestyle! Now, we still do, but the $$$ isnt there. I mean, China, you need VPN, its polluted and crowded in places, everyone smokes. But hey, think about the $ and they certainly do.

Victory tease major player announcement
6 hours ago 15:21
After a disappointing week on the pitch, Melbourne Victory are set to make a major move off it.
The club has teased they'll be making 'a major player announcement' on Friday at 9.30am with an unnamed senior player in attendance along with coach Kevin Muscat and chairman Anthony Di Pietro.
One possibility is clarification on Keisuke Honda's future with the club with the Japanese star's contract expiring at season's end.
Another possibility could relate to Victory veteran Carl Valeri whose contract is also expiring and at 34 may be considering hanging up his boots.
I feel like it's much more likely to be related to Valeri than to Honda.

It'd be a shame if it's the end for Valeri though. After copping a lot of flack last season, he was so instrumental to us winning the toilet seat over the last 2 months of the season, and as I've previously said in this thread, the way we lack direction and organisation when he has missed games this season supports my view that he's been the most underrated player in the league.

Sad to hear Valeri is retiring but probably the right call. His leadership is gonna be missed through, I can’t think of who will replace him as captain.
Broxy is the obvious choice but he’s probably to old now. Maybe Troisi if he sticks around but I don’t see him as leadership material.

Thoughts...
