    . must resign?

    . not the same thing as must re-sign ... they're kinda the opposite in this context

    Boy oh boy, re-sign my friend, re-sign. Resign is the opposite effect.

    Birraz yep absolutely, but afraid he might be gone
    Munford has left the club and is now at Gold Coast Knights in QLD NPL
    Pearce......eh, if Birraz leaves, we need to sign another first choice and keep him as a back up
    Ziggy yes, happy for him to stick around
    Tongyik is not a fan favourite after playing 1 game. Granted, he scored and was ok but still, he's not a must
    Rowles l would agree
    Miller signed an extension. He's already done
    Stens has been fine, ok as a squaddie
    Kim has been good in patches so he can stay
    DDS nah, l think he's gone
    Nisbet absolutely, should have a first team contract by now. It's overdue.
    Shabow nah, he's not at the level required to be an A-League player
    Jair - meh, not been good enough so far
    Harold - yes yes and yes
    Murray's got another year on his contract
    Roberts eh, still a youth player at best
    Kuol yeah, good enough to make the step up with another year under the belt
    Ruiz-Diaz, not convinced

    McGlinchey is gone
    Silvera is locked in to a long deal so will only go if someone wants him
    Majok, eh, squaddie at best
    Melling's gone, got no game time and is on decent money (apparently)
    Djuric - Dropped a bit the last couple of weeks but if he wants to stay, we should offer him an extension

    DDS is contracted for next season no?
    He does probably want out despite actually showing glimpses of quality but has impressed me with how keen he’s looked through out. Has very very rarely gone hiding. I just wish he could f**king score some goals.

    I’m at the point where Birra is absolutely paramount must be kept at all costs.
    Ziggy yes, he had a shaky period but continually steps up.
    Off the rest of the defenders coming off contract I say goodbye. Aside from Ruon, I’d give him a run of games to see if he shows something. But only as a squaddie at best.
    After wanting to throw at least 2 years at Milan his fading during the last few games has me worried but he’s easily been our best so I’d be very happy to have him for another year.
    Kim I’m not sure anymore. He’s not being used consistently in midfield so we’re not seeing all of his weapons although his quality is obvious. Perhaps him being used as a kind of half back (stepping into midfield and back into defence etc) is a sign his legs are gone.
    Nizzy yes
    Melling should already be gone
    Wee Mac gone
    Majok see ya
    Simo, thanks for everything

    I’d be using Harold as our main 9 for the rest of this season, he operates better with a partner though. And signing him for at least another 2. The technique in the way he struck the ball for his goal... we literally have not seen that from any of our strikers in at very least 2 years. And I have to be totally honest there’s local first graders capable of that technique. It’s not out of this world is what I’m saying. And to elaborate, if your day in day out job is pro football and your position so happens to be that of a striker. You should have that technique down pat.
    Yes this is a dig at Muzz after his dismal time of being fed plenty of times this season but technique has let him down more than luck. And it’s so frustrating knowing he had that ability in NPL. It should’ve amplified training everyday.

    I said Gordon was a fan favourite. Or at least he is in this household.

    This is who we have for next year
    Silvera-------De Silva----------????

    Nisbet and Ruiz-Diaz for me fill those spots.

    Now for the first XI - assuming 6 visa players next year.

    New RB------Ziggy-----Visa LCB-------New LB
    ------------Visa #6----Visa #8------------
    Harold-----------Visa #10-----------New LW
    -----------------Visa Striker--------------------

    Birighitti must be re-signed
    Ziggy is on a 1 plus 1. If we recruit well I think he would be keen to stay.
    Harold was unlucky with game time at Perth under Popa and I'd be happy to retain him

    The visa #6 and visa #8 may be Kim and Milan - but cannot be lesser players
    The visa #10 and visa striker are a must and need to be much higher quality than Asdrubal and Jair. .

    Fox, Melling, McGlinchey, Jair, Oar out.
    Simon to be retained in a club capacity - not as a player (except maybe as an injury replacement

    When was the last time we signed a visa player longer than one season?

    When we got Tom and Wout. But given our hit rate since then it’s not exactly a bad thing

    I still think Matty might be here next season after how's he's played the last few weeks.
    Obviously on a far cheaper deal, and he'll be coming off the bench for the last 15 minutes.

    I would seriously like to see some off those contracted for next year be loaned or sold.

    I think the loosing mentality is now set in and even those younger players with maybe the exception of Miller & Nisbit would benefit from having a spell away from us and give them team an even better chance to get fresh faces in that haven’t been part of the downfall.

    Be honestly surprised if no other clubs are interested in Nizzy - and honestly, the way we've treated him, he should jump at the chance to leave

    Given some of the others we've signed to senior contracts even under Staj giving Nisbet a senior contract is a no brainer. At worst he's a capable squad midfielder so theres no real risk there. He's exactly the kind of player we need to be supplementing some more expensive core players with. The only thing I can see is maybe they think they can cheap out on him again but it's only a matter of time before that strategy burns us either with him or other young players seeing the pattern.

    Given we signed Silvera after a couple of FFA Cup games to a 3-year deal and he's being outperformed by Nisbet, the club should be embarrassed
