  1. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * For the doubters, Holman scored and assisted a goal against Valencia: There's the goal and the assists should be in one of the side links.
  2. TEEBOY KAMARA Date of birth: 18.05.1996 Age: 15 Nationality: Australian/Liberian Club: Adelaide United Position: Winger (right mostly) Foot: right You may or may not remember him from the u17 WC, but he certainly impressed in his limited time he featured (the last game we struggled in though). Teeboy is looking likely to make his debut in the A-League tomorrow night, Fridya night Australian time. Rumour has it he could be coming off the bench and the tender age of 15. He's been the focus point of Adelaide's Youth Team and has been scoring and assisting a lot of their goals in what appears an average performing team at both levels. Adelaide have had injury problems on and off, but if Teeboy is to get some time, then he will become the youngest A-League (2005 onwards) player ever by just under a year. Strengths: Speed, creative skill - something out of nothing, ground crosses excellent, strength for his size. More to come tomorrow as it's getting late and I'll set it up properly.
  3. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell Yes, apparently at the start of November or late October it was gone, but he has side effects and was waiting for them to clear, but the cancer has come back... Australia will be waiting and hoping and maybe one day him and his brother will both be Socceroo stars!
  4. Re: Australian A-League 11/12 I'm betting clubs will be after him at the end of the season. Cahill will get into Everton's ears. He's go well at a quality Spanish club too. Three great performances so far for him.
  5. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * Nearly had a 2nd MOM coming on the weekend... Just a shame it turned out like it did. He should get a cap for Australia soon or a call-up at least.
  6. Re: Lorenzo Tassi - The new "Roberto Baggio" There was a thread in the other section. A lot tend to point that out.
  7. Re: Lorenzo Tassi - Can He Do A 'Lukaku'? He just signed for Inter Milan. Hopefully something special in the near future.
  8. Re: Mustafa Amini- trialling with Borrusia Dortmund and Newcastle United It'll be Dortmund! I'm guessing he's out of the game more because the deal will be announced soon. Hopefully not Scotland! He's also in the TC for the Young Socceroos (local players, bar Fletcher and McGowan on loan to Gold Coast this season later in the year). A 100% certainty for the u20 WC.
  9. Re: A-League 2010-2011 Patafta might not even be in an A-League team by the time the season starts in October. He was a big talent from the 2005 u17 WC, but since returning to Australia in 2007 he seemed to struggle for regular time and had a couple of injuries over the last year or just was left right out. A pretty big flop, but mostly due to his size not his talent. He would have been much better off staying there and getting loaned out to the second tier in Portugal. I guess he still has time on his side. Some ratings are a bit off for the A-League for sure (Velaphi one that comes to mind), Amini would be a top choice (he could get loaned back if he does get bought by Dortmund or any other club soon), but I'll say so later in the year when it's best to buy. Ibini-Isei and Antonis for sure later this year. Some of the GC youngsters.
  10. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell A good second game against "The Mighty Brazil" in a 1-0 loss for us. He caused them some problems despite going for it on his own at times (couple of good chances at least, including one over the bar). We had a quality first half against them, but the second half was much better for Brazil. Didn't look much better a lot of the time considering they'd have one player worth more than what our whole squad would fetch on the European market.... Piazon didn't do much at all against us. We were missing 15 year old Teeboy Kamara, who impressed off the bench in the first game. He was injured in training, but I hope he's alright for the 3rd group game.
  11. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell Hmm... Bradley Smith is the Australian LB in the England u17's (Liverpool). He has big wraps himself. Tombides has wraps a bit like Kewell, but his style is a left forward or Central Striker when need be (he was playing as a striker up front in the first game). I was watching it on and off, but he was going floating a little back at times for more ball. Looked quite quick, especially when he made a run in the first-half and fired a bullet a bit over the bar.
  12. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell I figured I would do an update on him. He ended up sitting on the bench for West Ham's last game, but didn't get on. I guess that means he could still be added now, given a lot these days get added for making the bench? As many would know he very much impressed in our game for the u17's this morning! Scoring the winner against Ivory Coast in what was a great performance by him individually. A clear standout for us. Makarounas scored an awesome first goal (he's quality as well). Here is some highlights below already uploaded from the game. Makarounas scoring around 1, 45 and Tombides around 2, 30. E95CvyqyqiE
  13. Re: Mustafa Amini- trialling with Borrusia Dortmund and Newcastle United It looked like he wouldn't end up there this coming season, but CCM may have reached an agreement and deal it looks like now after one declined offer last month. Happy for him and for his future development. A great move for him, despite the likelihood of playing full games in the A-League when it starts later in the year (much better development training with them and playing at youth and reserve level). http://www.bild.de/sport/fussball/mustafa-amini/klopp-holt-pumuckl-amini-18304840.bild.html I used a translator and it says: Hooray, hooray, Dortmund gets the super-talent with the red hair! Football Pumuckl Mustafa Amini (18) is satisfied BVB coach Jürgen Klopp (43) in the sample training in March (BILD reported). Result: The Australian U-20 national team with the fiery red curly hair is now Borusse. Borussia Dortmund manager Michael Zorc (48) to BILD: "We have the Central Coast Mariners made a new offer for Mustafa. We are confident that we can agree now ... " Champion Klopp brings Pumuckl! 250 000 € Dortmund must release to the Australian Vice-champion (they would mean runner-up in the premiership and championship) Central Coast Mariners pay. Just a few weeks ago, the A-League club from Gosford (50 km north of Sydney) more than twice requested. Meanwhile, there has leadership changed and the club used a rethink. Dortmund gets the football Pumuckl! Down Under is the strong-running midfield technicians already become a cult figure. Amini: grin: "My hair is naturally pure. Our games are the fans in the stadium even red wigs. " Not at all imagine, will look how crazy the south stand (25 000 fans), if in the future will break out the wigs fever ... Amini (mother from Nicaragua, Afghan father) says: "The BVB is an indescribable club with an incredible coach. I really want to go there! " Now the football dream is probably true. Klopp on the "kicking goblin": "The boy is a huge talent!
  14. Re: Thorgan Hazard - Better than Brother Eden? No Courtois or Kaminski as GK's? I guess because they had long season's?
  15. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * You don't know what you are talking about basing your answers on one game (more the defense in front of him anyway). Obviously you haven't seen much of their games or him in general and how he rates compared to the other GK's in that league.
  16. Re: Francesco Grandolfo (Bari's Young Shining Star) I assume no rise will be given he was put on at 76. I'll just shortlist him and see how he goes next season.
  17. Re: Serie A - Ratings Prediction 2010/2011 (II) He'd likely get loaned out to another club. I heard something about a Serie B team, but hopefully a Serie A team that would be needing someone.
  18. Re: Felipinho - Inter's Revelation He must be a bit part player at best for the team he's at in Korea.
  19. Re: Respuesta: Yaya SANOGO, French Talent: Arsenal & Tottenham Target (MUST LOOK!) I think he was injured for awhile (early on in the season maybe) and probably came back in the last month I assume. Think he'll end up as a superstar striker for them in the future!
  20. Re: Schlupp, Taft and Smith - Future Leicester Stars I was going to mention Alex Cisak, but just realised he was released instead of being loaned to Accrington Stanley (in league 2) at the end of 09/10. He's a 21 year old young Australian/Polish and has been impressing a lot since making his league debut for them in October and being the regular pretty much since (I assume). Probably came to Australia as a baby or like 1-2; with them from 2004 at the latest. Could push them into the promotion spots.
  21. Dylan Tombides Club: West Ham United Position: Striker Nationality: Australian D.O.B: 8 March 1994 Age: 17 Not on DB Dylan has made such an impact at youth and reserve level that just last month or so he was brought with the first-team to a training camp in Europe. Like other young talents from here, he is said to be "the new Kewell". Definitely rated to have the potential to be a star striker for us at this level. He's scored 3 goals in 11 starts, 18 total at youth league level in a competitive young team, but it's at reserve level where he has made his mark over the rest of their youth stars at West Ham. In the reserves he has scored 3 goals in 7 appearances (4 starts), which contains a recent double against Arsenal. Has that feel about him and looks like a second striker type. Apparently could have appeared for them recently if not for their current situation. Given their relegation fight I assume we'll have to wait until next season (mentioned in the media he could make debut at the end of season). We will be able to see him first hand in the u17 WC! As he'd be a certainty to be added to the group that qualified (plus others). Dylan Tombides Interview RW_FTExuK0k Note: He's the one with the red sort of boots.
  22. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread 2010/11 Young Amini is rumoured to be close to signing for Dortmund. As he also apparently did not continue on to a trial at Newcastle United and could be back in Australia now or just flew back (shows that he likely impressed). The guy with the red afro! He'll be seen in the u20 WC and turns 18 soon.
  23. Re: Ante VUKUSIC (75 Rated), Next Croatian Star (BY Bornich-Gozzy) Hmm, what will he likely go to? 84 isn't asking too much is it? Seems a bit above average for the team, which is fair. A few on 86. Has had rumoured interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, etc. Might look at signing him for one of my lesser teams and maybe as back-up for one team (if available still,a s I used to have him). Not that I need him, but looks likely to be quality.
