Lol at there being no farewell quotes from Adrian. Guess there is no love lost there.

All class from Bobo.  I wish him well.

Adrian was/is a dog.

Lol at Superfan cancelling membership. 😂

Adrian can jog on. Hope he doesn’t get paid like half the other mercenary cunts that head to that busted arse league.

Posted by: BlueRanger One thing thats easy to forget about Bobo's season is that he scored 15 goals.... while having to press for 70-80 minutes

Yeah huge difference there. Good luck to Bobo getting a final pay day. Always respected the club and fans and will go down as our greatest ever striker and a genuinely good guy. Gutted to see him go but will always have fond memories. 

As for Adrian just so disappointing. When his contract is inevitably terminated in China after six months I wouldnt put it past him to sign for Victory or Wanderers.

... and, our squad was not exactly balanced, last season, a lot of that due to Adrian's large salary.

We did well to be able to field the same XI every week, but outside of that we lacked a lot of depth compared to the season before...

Don't pick Buijs in the ACL campaign = Buijs leaves + a failed ACL campaign.

Bobo out after having a very good regular season, but went missing in the ACL and poor in the finals again.

Adrian fought his way out - it seemed to be a mixture of him being a dick and the club not managing the situation properly.

I told you guys months ago that I wanted to see a bit of a rebuild under Rudan, because it was time for a fresh start and to clear the air with some chemistry problems arising. It seems that this rebuild has been forced now.

The club needs to go out and get a big name in order to maintain interest over what is going to be a challenging couple of years. Honda would be ideal for ACL considerations. The way things stand, its looking like an extremely unprofessional mess.

I am very glad that I cancelled my membership early just in case something like this happened - I don't want to travel around the countryside watching Charles and Brosque screw up once touch passes.

Not good. Not good at all.

Any chance you could delete your account as well?

As others have said, all the best to Bobo. Was class on and off the field.

As for Adrian, good riddance and good luck with your new club that our youth side just turned over last night.

I have complete faith in Corica, McFlynn, Townsend and co to get our visa players spot on. Been a few years now since we had a hammer thrower in a foreign slot.

Too hard to get to the suburban grounds from the Blue Mountains - Its only worth it when the product the club is offering is top quality.

Jordy Buijs deserves his own Marvel film.

Like when we had Bobo.

Can't fathom how sad you'd have to be as a person to cancel your membership after the seasons we've had recently and using two players leaving the club as your justification.

Because Parramatta Stadium is all shiny and new?

Saw something on Twitter saying we actually got $1.7m for Adrian, not $1.3m. Sounds a bit more realistic.

I think that's because £1.1m has been quoted elsewhere.

We've got 8 out of our 11 contracted (my view is that between Calver and Warland we've got a starter) plus a solid bench (Calver/Warland, Retre, Zuvela, Brosque, Lokoli-Ngoi).

Between Buijs, Mierzejewski and Carney we've got close to $1m cap free, as well as a marquee spot.

With the transfer fees and FFA money we have a real shot at Torres or Honda or similar. Either alongside Ninković, Halloran and a $500k p.a. import would be phenomenal.

$1.3m is less than Mark Bridges transfer to Chiangrai United. If that was the truth that is poor business from the club. Which is why it doesn't feel quite right because our club is normally so good with this stuff

Just saying - last time we suffered a disappointing player departure (Brosque to Japan) the club made up for it with an almighty signing (Del Piero).

Here's hoping history repeats itself.

I'm not that worriee about losing Adrian. I think we only need 1 creative type player and Ninko is more than great and without Adrian in the way he can get back to his season before last form.

Remember we won the Gf with Ninko the year before Adrian arrived and didn't even make it when he was here. Don't get me wrong he is a great player but his absence will leave more space for Ninko to shine again

Torres to announce that he signed for Chicago Fire later today.

Fox Sports actually broke the story this morning to say we had signed him, but minutes later the story was revised.

That's a shame. Could've been huge for the league, and perfect for us. Oh well, Honda and an import cap striker will do!

I shan't be jumping to Wsw...

Just no chance in hell I'm pre paying a membership without knowing if there will be a good product on the pitch, and whether I'll even be able to make games during this period.

I am a customer.

Weird about the Foxsports thing. Here's hoping for another bait and switch and Torres comes out at 5.30 and says he has signed for sydney fc. Here's hoping....

To be fair it’s for the best. If you couldn’t properly enjoy the last two years then there’s absolutely no way you could handle a return to our historic levels of mediocrity and the resulting goo to feast upon.

Professional footballers only get about 15 years, maybe 20 if they're lucky. Just got to accept it was always going to be tough holding onto Adrian after such an insane season.

I don't agree Adrian leaving will help us on the pitch unless we can bring in similar quality to balance the creative workload with Ninko. If Ninko goes down injured for any length of time, we would be completely in the shit without another creative player taking the load off. It wouldn't be like 2016-17 because our opponents have really knuckled down to limit Ninko's influence in games. Adrian benefited from having loads more space than he normally would have. Watch how many times Adrian was involved in goals last season simply because the opposition either forgot about him or otherwise Adrian lost them and he was free for a shot or pass.
