fener lost 5-2 to koln in a friendly today :enditall:

tbf though we're missing like 6 starters and our new coach insists on playing with wingbacks while having only two of the slowest center backs in the world

Nup, if he sticks with what he says then his playing days are over.

All this pre-season build up is getting me excited. FC Utrecht blooded young Aussie Tommy Oar in their 2nd round qualifying match against FK Tirana, even though he did come on in th 89th minute in a 4-0 victory. Hopefully it indicates he'll be used off the bench at least this season, won't be another Australian wasting away on the bench at European clubs.

james troisi is doing quite well in the turkish league with kayserispor. they just added moritz so they have a pretty ridiculous attacking force with him, moritz, and cangele (3 of the top 10 players in the league)

Troisi is a player I haven't seen much of, he hardly played here in Australia, but has done well to get games in Turkey. So would you class him in the top 10 players in the Super Lig? That's a compliment, indeed.

top 10 attacking players for sure. most of the good turkish attackers are either german or think they're too big for our league. troisi is one of the top foreigners in the league. would have loved him on fener myself (if we didn't have too many foreigners already).

That was a good finish, let's hope he keeps developing well. He's only 22 and has a lot of promise. I hope Djite can find a way to start and score regularly, he transferred to the continent from my club Adelaide United. Emre is the sort of midfielder Australia produced more of. Thanks for the links Ze.

djite hasn't had the best of times in turkey. it's unfortunate, because he's more of a second striker type, not a target man. in turkey, if you don't score every match you're deemed not good enough :(

im looking forward to troisi developing as well. the socceroos will need a replacement for harry soon (who, btw, just re-signed with galatasaray)

Yeah Djite isn't the complete product yet, not by any stretch of the imagination. But Troisi is definitely going to feature for the Socceroo's in the next couple of campaigns. Heard about Harry, hope he can keep fit to continue his goal of making it to Brazil 2014.

why didn't you just make a thread about the match itself if that's what you were going to post about

if you dumbis are going to be posting over here you have to get out of a retarded garbage ball thread mentality

didn't you read the pintian compromise?
