    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.

  2. Re: Sam Hutchinson

    Now 22! He was playing football for Chelsea before he retired at 18 through injury to his knees which kept him out' date=' a few years down the line and Chelsea have given him a new contract. The specail one once said he was one for the future. If he comes good and stays if could be a great player/signing. Cheers :)[/quote']

    He retired at 21, but has been injured on and off since he's been in and around the first-team.

  3. Re: Australian A-League 11/12

    Would add an assist to Antonis.

    Had a brilliant game against Adelaide. This kid will be something special

    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.

  4. 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. :confused: 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell

    Swear I read that he was a left fullback... maybe its just because he is left footed.

    Anyway gotten huge raps and hopefully he will debut in the Championship this season.

    Really exciting time to be an Aussie with so much good talent coming through

    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.

  7. 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! :D 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.


  8. 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).


    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!

  9. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *


    Im saying we should sign him because he isnt good enough. Just daft paper talk :)

    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.

  10. Re: Serie A - Ratings Prediction 2010/2011 (II)

    CASNOS' date=' Luc [/b']

    Noticed he's just signed a deal with Inter. Will Luc be able to make his way into the lineup anytime soon? Any potential to rise in the near future?

    Also any good risers in the 80's you would recommend?



    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.

  11. Re: Weverson Leandro-New Grêmio star??

    That may be the case' date=' but it's starts and goals in the State Championships rather than in Serie A or Liberatores so it won't get him a rise (for people looking for risers).

    If he's as good as you say then he could well be worth a punt if he looks like getting some proper competitive match minutes though.[/quote']

    Plus that State League his team is in is one of the easier ones compared to the one Santos and co are in.

  12. 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.

  13. 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).

    Note: He's the one with the red sort of boots.

  14. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread 2010/11

    Young Amini is rumoured to be close to signing for Dortmund. :D 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.

  15. 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.
