Club went downhill when they decided Broich was to to leave yet kept hacks like McKay, Dagastino and Henrique
Club went downhill the moment Aloisi decided to field a second string side against a must-win ACL game against Muangthong because the semis were supposedly more important and going on to lose that semi anyway, then Aloisi NOT getting sacked over that debacle.

Question mate. Is there anyway for Brisbane to get out of Suncorp and into a boutique stadium? I don’t know Brisbane but surely there is a neat 15-20k rectangle stadium the roar can use other than Suncorp.
Ballymore is a s**thole and in an awful location. Although after going to Kogarah for Sydney FC away I do support the idea of moving to another stadium only problem is Perry Park would be way too small and the others are in a terrible location

Brisbane Roar captain and Australia's AFC Asian Cup-winning midfielder Matt McKay will retire this month after an 18-year professional career.

McKay, 36, best known for his on-field leadership and tucked-in shirt, is ending a stellar career for both club and country.
Other players will retire with more accolades, but McKay can say he led one of the greatest Australian club sides of all time.
Under coach Ange Postecoglou, McKay captained the Roar to the club's first title in 2010-11, finishing the season on a 28-game unbeaten streak.
In that season, he was named PFA Player of the Year.
His teammates would lengthen that run to an Australian-record 36 matches as he pursued an overseas career, but McKay returned to help Brisbane win another double in 2013/14 under Mike Mulvey.
He's continued on at the Roar through the club's downturn in fortunes and has decided against playing on next year.
"I'm grateful for everything football has given me," McKay said.
"I've had an enjoyable career with plenty of highs and lows, but I've always had a smile on my face and that's what's made it for me."
McKay also enjoyed success in the Socceroos set-up, most notably under his former club boss Postecoglou.

He travelled to Brazil as part of Australia's 2014 FIFA World Cup team and helped the Socceroos win a first major trophy - the Asian Cup - in 2015.
"I've always tried my hardest and I think that's what has made my career last as long as it it has - I've always given my all," McKay said.
"I was there from day one at the Roar and played with some immense players with a great work ethic, which has been really special."
McKay has two matches to finish his career, both on home soil.
The Roar face Newcastle on Saturday and then Adelaide United on Anzac Day, with tributes planned for the foundation A-League player.

He was a big part of the Roar especially under the Ange years, will leave a massive hole!
