In a presser a few weeks ago Staj was talking about Kim, he mentioned he still has niggles so not rushing him to start. Not sure when we will see him start but I recall he also has a pretty poor injury record in the K League. Maybe smart by Staj as he is pretty handy at coming on late and offers some stability. Kim might be happy with this treatment.I’d say he will start this week
Yes that was what I read he was going back to chat to the Cherries, that was when it was mentioned he was keen to go back to the US. Cup win and back into Socceroos contention so you can not blame him for being keen on the US when it has revived his career. I like him as a player so it is good to see him getting his mojo back.Bounemouth. But they both the loan and deal end at the end of next month supposedly
I think Oar has been in our top 3 players every game this season. Would you risk bringing in an unknown when we already have his quality? Unless he is asking a lot more money for an extension being in form and captain.Oar can go for mine. Good player but not really do anything. Use his and McGlinchy money on a proper overseas winger.
Birra can stay (can’t believe I’m writing this but he has proved me wrong)
Ziggy can go to. Had a really good game on weekend but nothing we cannot replace. I’d take Fox and Millar over him and buy another attacker
Duric, Oar and Birraz have been our best i reckon.I think Oar has been in our top 3 players every game this season. Would you risk bringing in an unknown when we already have his quality? Unless he is asking a lot more money for an extension being in form and captain.
Oar has been an absolutely fantastic signing. No real fuss, gets on with the job, dependable, but still does some great work moving forwards.IMO Oar is a great example of the qualities we want to see in our players. Plenty of heart, will run til he drops and leaves nothing on the pitch. Even when he has a bad game you aren’t questioning that he has put the effort in for us. I never get the feeling he’s out there for himself.
We brought Matty and weemac back to revamp our culture but I want to see more focus on players like Oar moving forward. Pain was of a similar mould and both Rowles and Muzz seem to have a similar vibe too.
That may be a valid call and I guess that’s where the leadership group comes in. Captain can be a great face for the club and positive or calming influence, but then you can turn to more of an enforcer in the squad for a stern word when someone or the whole team needs a kick up the arse. Whether that’s the likes of Matty or perhaps a Kim/Duric/Birraz character. Nothing wrong with knowing your strengths and having others complement them.The commentators were talking about how he doesn't seem like the captain who can light a fire under the team though, not like, say, Hutcho could.
