Is Xavi Torres still at Perth? Thought he'd left for some reason.

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...

I won't be surprised to see Bernie Ibini back here by the start of the season. He's barely played for Vancouver all season (7 appearances for 368 minutes) and hasn't been in the matchday squad for the last month (4 games). Maybe a reunion with CCM?

More like he'll be playing for WSW or Victory next season.

God I hope Bernie doesn't end up at Victory or Western Suburbs. Would kill me if he did an Antonis.

Ken Ilsø to Adelaide after scoring for fun in Singapore and Malaysia in the past 3 years. Refers to himself in 3rd person on Twitter.

Victory are apparently signing Danny Holla from Twente. Guess they actually aren't going in for a short-term Milligan contract.

Looks a pretty decent signing.

Nux sign Steven Taylor on a 1 year contract. Should be decent.

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.

Rhys Williams signs for some Saudi club.

Leroy George rejects a new contract, but is apparently in talks with 3 other HAL clubs [there's a great interview with Vice where he takes a shit on the HAL today].

Leroy George seemed like he was on the piss in that interview. Definitely worth reading if you haven't already.

WSW linked to Alexander Baumjohann.

Looks as though his career was ruined by 2 long term knee injuries between 2013-2015 and has barely played over the last 12 months.

Danny Holla saw the light and turned down signing for Victory.

SBS saying that Victory are now chasing Keisuke Honda. Cannot see that happening in a million years, remember some earlier reports were that he was chasing $7m a season.

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.

Happy with a six week trial. plenty of publicity and then he can piss off.

 

If, by the slim chance, he is good enough, then it would massive for the league and sponsors.

Actually this is less funny when you find out FFA would have to stump up $900k.
