There are some whopping savings in the Sydney FC shop if you want to get geared up for next season.

I'm just going to wait until we finish clearing out players before I put down my cash to get a name on my back - if we keep Yau I might go with him.

indeed it was - would have pulled them back to 1-1, and would have had the majority of the crowd behind them.

But, on the balance of play, a fair result.

Lets be honest, ignoring our dislike of the gypos, they deserve a toilet seat, after being the most consistent team since inception.

FAO: danmau5 - the AFC have changed the qualification rules again, so for 2014 if the winner of the a-league grand final is from the top 2 finishers in the league, 3rd place gets a qualifying round entry.

tl;dr the tards are up for the 2014 AFC champions league.

Away games in Korea and Japan, can't wait

whilst amusing given how gash he has been over a number of years, he was very good this season, in a very good team.

Plus the chance to wear a Panamanian's shirt with my Panama hat is just too good to pass up, I reckon.

Bridge's problem when he played with us was that he was very good at getting himself into good positions but stone useless at getting the ball into the net once he got into those positions. From the WSW games I saw this season he seemed to play much better when he didn't have to be the focal point of the attack - he could just pop up from wherever he was and get involved.

"Bridge" and "get involved" are two terms you don't see used together too often, unless you add a drunken "fucking" in between the two.

1. Seems like a genuinely nice kid and I'm happy to see him get his shot at the big leagues.

2. One less decent player at Victory.

He was single-handedly responsible for at least three of our losses last season.
