The Castro/poppa relationship will be interesting
Do you reckon?
People seem intent that Castro isn't a "Popa-like player" but I reckon Popavic is always keen on having a creative/lazy/belligerent #10. Martinez, Saba, Bonevacia etc.
If Popa is still going through his "I need to prove I'm not just the park-the-bus type coach" phase, he'll rely on Castro, as he doesn't really know how to implement a genuinely proactive style.
He also seems to like Spaniards, so...
Yeah that's a solid signing from them. Rudan's first job has to be sorting out the defence, and he should make a decent go of it with a leader like Taylor there.
I read Steven Taylor's first words as a Nux player. He described the A-League as one of the best leagues in the world. Its nice to see him talking up the league in the press but if he really feels that way he's going to be disappointed very, very quickly.
Posted by: HybridBonevacia should be sponsored by Napisan with the amount of time he spends rolling around on the grass.
Mariners have appointed Mike 'more than a' Phelan as their Sporting Director.
Unlike a lot of these foreign appointments in the past, it seems to be much more than a consultancy part-time role.
