Next player signing 🧐. The Italian Gestede must still be happening then

Well we are well and truly stocked in the forward line then. No more relying on Robbie Kurse although what's the bet now he isn't guaranteed a start he suddenly becomes injury free.

I wonder who starts out of Daggers and the new bloke unless Poppa goes for two CFs.

I'm assuming some of the recruiting is to cover losing Socceroos players.

I thought A League was taking a break for international rounds this season?
Oh I don't think I read that anywhere. At least we've got a bit of depth at least then. Making a sub even a goal down before was effectively resigning. Now hopefully we can find winners from the bench.

Definitely. I posted a second XI before, it looks pretty impressive and not that far off the sides we were fielding last season at times!!
