Find it staggering that is the first time the club has paid a transfer fee. They’ve only been around 15 years..

Ecstatic to get Riley back. I was very disappointed when he left and then to see him used sporadically at City hurt my soul last season, the bloke was better than most players at the club.

Our new number 8 :hearts:

Huge money, not all that unexpected.

Lose your 2 best players in 1 off season, not great. Replaced Isa with McGree so let's see what we can come up with here. Suspect it'll be Troisi.

McGree is more talented than Goodwin. Has much more to his game than Goody. I know they play different positions but McGree will be a socceroos regular in the future (injury being kind). As much of a flog Troisi is I would take him right now. At least he is an SA boy.

McGree also has a better attitude than Grumpy Goody.

If we recruit right we will be fine, and I have more faith than I did this time last year.

Really? We're still in desperate need of a goal scorer before I'm remotely happy. McGree is a great addition but we took 2 steps backwards to get there (losing Isa and Goody).

I heard Keogh may be on the move from Perth. Is that a viable option? We wouldn't be smart enough to pay him but we'd finally have a 10+ goal a year player who doesn't get injured every week...

McGree will be enormous for us, make no mistake.

We do need a goalscorer though that's for sure, plenty of time for that of course. I don't get the money remark, I mean we've just paid a transfer fee for the first time in club history and you've got the Head of Football telling everyone we will spend more than ever.

I'd say that's positive signs.

We aren't exactly known for bringing in the expensive players. Hopefully that changes of course but anyone who's followed this club a long time has a right to be pessimistic when it comes to our signings...

I'd be a bit disappointed if we brought in Troisi after he's rejected us a number of times but he would be a decent in admittedly. Whatever we do, whatever we spend, just get the striker decision right for once.
