Which foreigner do you think will be dropped for the ACL?

Won't be Adnan, because he's the +1.

Any more signings for the season that anyone knows about? I think the team is pretty much set, although I would fancy one more striker just for safes!

Too early to say - if anyone's injured around ACL time, that will make the decision easy.

Wait until the season kicks off and there'll be more discussion.

Hopefully we find out more about the new owners soon as well and then we'll have plenty to talk about.

i know this isnt ideal for the roar thread but i wanted to gauge what brisbane people think. i was contemplating that during the ownership courting that the Clem Jones group were consulted as possible owners meaning they were interested in investing into the a-league. with this is mind do we think football in brisbane would benefit if they backed the Striker's to return to the a-league.

bear with me here, i know the Roar are still struggling to boost crowd numbers but would a rival brisbane club boost the interest collectively and maybe the two clubs could work together on a stadium deal with suncorp resulting in better pricing for both of them.

just a thought?

No, we saw a big hit to crowds when GCU moved into the league, and they are 100km down the highway, another team in the same city would be tragic to crowd levels. Maybe in 10 years, but not now.

The better angle would be a merger/joint venture with the Strikers where the Strikers become the feeder or player development arm of the Roar. I think that has the possibility of being very beneficial to both clubs.

If CJG do end up investiging in the Roar, together with Bakries as the major shareholders - I wonder if this would open up the realistic possibility of developing Perry Park into the boutique stadium we all would love to see? Planning approvals pending of course.

No. Rugby League an Union are strong in Brisbane at the moment, and any splitting of football fans will just mean lower crowds at games. If the Roar cant find backers, how can we support two teams in Brisbane.

That's the dream. Sydney needs one as desperately as you guys do, Suncorp and the SFS are rubbish for anything under 15k.

It would be awesome, but ultimately unrealistic I fear... Even if you could get the cash together, it would be so easy for the state government to bomb any development applications in the interests of protecting their own assets (suncorp)

Surely with another Brisbane team coming into the NRL they would look at a 25k stadium now?

well believe it.

http://maps.google.com.au/maps?gcx=c&ix=c2&q=perry+park&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wl

thats a google maps view of Perry Park. I see at train close by, but i dont see any chance of them installing a busway or developing the stadium into anything fantastic.

The Qld govt built Suncorp and put plenty into it for Rugby League. THey then through more money an AFL ground in the gold coast. Ballymore still needs plenty of work, yet nothing has been done or looks close to being done. Id say that Football would be far down on the list when it comes to construction of a football stadium.

Hey all, in (somewhat) roar related news.. I could swear I read somewhere (but can't find the source right now) that Milan Susak has cut his Indonesian deal short and has just signed with Adelaide United. Can anyone confirm? Opinions?

It seems to be popular consensus at the moment. There is a thread around here somewhere i think. I believe his first choice was to come back to the Roar but didnt quite work out.

The man himself has confirmed it.

Quote:
Trio named as Roar's full-time youth players
Thursday, 22 September 2011 by Michelle Tobin

Brisbane Roar have named striker Nicholas Fitzgerald, midfielder George Lambadaridis and left-back Corey Brown as the club’s full-time youth players.

Football Federation Australia regulations allow for three players young enough to play in the National Youth League to be paid full-time wages outside the Hyundai A-League salary cap.

Their two year contracts mean the trio will sit outside the club’s maximum of 23 Hyundai A-League squad members - currently at 20 - but will train regularly with the first team and will be available for selection by Head Coach Ange Postecoglou when required.

With the club set to embark on their maiden journey into AFC Champions League football at the latter end of the season, their contributions to the side could prove vital to Brisbane’s title chances throughout the lengthy campaign.

Fitzgerald, who has been a regular feature in the Roar’s pre-season fixtures and managed to find the back of the net on a consistent basis, was positive he could make an impact at Hyundai A-League level if called upon by the coaching staff.

“I’m very grateful for this opportunity and I plan on making the most of it,” the former Central Coast Mariners Youth player said.

“The boys have been great to me – Ezza (Erik Paartalu) and Shane (Stefanutto) in particular have really helped me and playing in front of guys like that you get a lot more opportunities to score which is great.

“I like playing anywhere up front, I like to try and get in behind the defender and get on the end of one of Thomas (Broich)’s passes.”

Lambadardis, a towering player capable of playing anywhere in the middle third of Brisbane’s formation, said he already felt as ease within Postecoglou’s football system.

The Melbourne-born midfielder spent 18 months in Belguim with Club Brugge’s youth academy before making the switch back to Australia earlier this year.

“It’s my first experience within a first team set-up and it’s been great since I’ve been here,” Lambadardis said.

“Since we’ve been here, we’ve been adapting to the coach’s system and the specific way he wants us to play which is unique compared to the rest of the league.

“We’ve been working hard so that when we are called up to the first team, we can slot into his system which is the most important thing.”

17-year-old Brown, an Australian representative at Under 17 and Under 20 levels, was confident the move back to his hometown was the right choice for his budding career.

“I’m very excited, I’ve only been here a couple of months but I’ve already got a feel for it all,” the Australian Institute of Sport graduate said.

“I’ve been learning a lot from all of the older boys, it’s been really good actually, I’ve been able to develop as a player even in these past two months.

“In terms of playing for the national team, this is the best place for me to be because there’s no better place to develop than the best team in the country.”

Postecoglou was pleased to have the three versitile players at his disposal and said he wouldn't hesistate in playing the young trio if needed.

“We certainly see them as players who can develop into really good first team players over the next two years of their contract and so far, I’ve been really happy with the progress of all three,” Postecoglou said.

“Because we’re rolling with a squad of twenty, and the Olyroos being away will have an impact on us so I’ll be very surprised if they don’t get a chance to play.

“We believe all three of them are capable of playing first team football should it be required this year and that’s certainly what we’ll be pushing for and I won’t be afraid to throw them in.”
