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 shithole 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!

Warren Moon appointed Brisbane Roar Hyundai A-League Head Coach
@brisbaneroar

Brisbane Roar Football Club is delighted to announce it has appointed Hyundai A-League foundation player Warren Moon as its new Hyundai A-League Head Coach.
Moon, who previously held the position of Brisbane Roar Academy General Manager, is one of Australia’s finest coaching products having established himself during a highly-successful stint as Head Coach of NPL Queensland outfit Lions FC.
Moon returned to Brisbane Roar in September 2019 and has been a key figure in the reinvigoration of the Academy, which continues to produce Hyundai A-League players.
He will continue to maintain oversight of the Brisbane Roar Academy Program as an important pathway for our future Brisbane Roar Hyundai A-League players.
Brisbane Roar holds a special place in the heart of the NPL QLD championship-winning coach, having played in the Club’s first ever Hyundai A-League fixture in 2005.
“It’s a great privilege to be appointed as Head Coach of this great football club,” Moon said.
“As one of the Club’s inaugural players, Brisbane Roar has always meant a great deal to me. It was an honour to return to the Club in its Academy, and now to continue as Head Coach of its Hyundai A-League squad.

“There’s plenty to play for this season and plenty of work to be done in the coming weeks. I’m excited for the challenge ahead and looking forward to working closely with a terrific group of coaches and a highly-talented playing group.”
Brisbane Roar’s new Head Coach brings with him a deep passion for the Club, the continued development of its squad members as well as an unparalleled understanding of the Queensland football landscape.
Brisbane Roar Vice-Chairman Chris Fong says the appointment is a terrific opportunity both for the Club and for its new Head Coach.
“The club was focused on appointing an Australian coach as its next Head Coach and we are pleased to not only announce our new Head Coach is not only Australian, but a terrific advocate for Queensland football,” Fong said.
“He has had wonderful success in the NPL QLD, played a key role in our Academy, was a foundation player for the Club and is now becoming the leader of our Hyundai A-League team.”
“His coaching credentials speak for itself and we believe Warren has the experience and ability to continue building our Club to the top of Australian football.”
CEO David Pourre said: “Warren has been an integral part of our football setup since his commencement with us. I’m sure all Queensland local clubs, players, coaches and supporters of football will embrace the appointment of Warren and continue their support of our great club.”
