THE ROAR ON
Interesting to read that the RBB has split.
A new supporter group, calling themselves "West Sydney Terrace" claim to have: "a different mentality & direction" to the RBB and will be moving to Bay 53.
Their vision is to "prioritise the team & all supporters".
Milligan was a key player, for sure.
But, the reality is Milligan was missing due to suspension, or international duties, for 9 (of 29) matches last season - nearly 1/3 of the season - and MVFC functioned beautifully without him.
The player whose absence MVFC struggled to cover was the big Frenchman. Pretty sure when DelPierre started a match MVFC never lost in the ALeague.
I went to watch MVFC in the FFA Cup against AUFC. Whilst it could be argued it was 'pre-season', the truth is AUFC take the FFA Cup very seriously. The 1st half display by MVFC (no Milligan) was close the the most perfect football I've ever seen MVFC play.
Hyundai ALeague Season launch for 2015/16 will be streamed live from 10:30 a.m. (AEDST) via the A-League website and the ALeague's YouTube channel
