I'm 13 and I write articles on The Roar for fun. I try to get up at least 1 article a week. I support Sydney FC and Manchester United.

(By the way, I’m assuming you’re a City fan because of your profile picture) Why wouldn’t you want Fornaroli to leave? He’s not going to get any game time, and at the moment he’s getting paid ridiculous amounts of money to do pretty much nothing. Also, he is filling up one of your marquee spots, so the best thing you can do in the transfer window is get rid of him, as he is just wasting space at City.

What will change when Milos Ninkovic leaves Sydney FC?

True. Don’t know what happened to him though?

Who would replace him to go along with Brillante? Also, who would take corners and free kicks? And who would be able to start the plays and be the engine behind Sydney FC? In the Sydney midfield, Brillante is the competitor and O’Neil starts the plays. Can you suggest anyone who can fulfil those roles?

Who would be your Johnny Warren Medalist for the 2016/17 season then?

Ninkovic has done a lot more for his clubs than most players. Just because he doesn’t single-handedly win games for Sydney and doesn’t score a goal a game doesn’t mean he’s a lesser player than Mierzejewski and Bobo. If you watched the runs he makes off the ball and the movement he creates for himself, then you would start to realise how good is. In my opinion, he performs at such a consistent basis that people don’t rate him highly, as he’s not scoring.

You thought who had left already?

I would like to see Ninkovic as captain, but I think that is unlikely. Even if this is Brosque’s last season, He’ll still have players like Wilkinson to battle with for the spot, and I think Sydney wants to have the captain Australian. Also, a player like Brosque is never afraid to argue with the referees, whereas Ninkovic likes to keep his head screwed on and usually keeps to himself, so he would be a silent leader.

Thanks! I completely agree, but does Fornaroli have the right attitude to change his style of play? He’s used to being the star, and what might be hard for him is going to a club where the players have proved to be better than him. But there is no doubt that if he manages to change his style of play to suit Tony Popovic and his team, Perth will become even more ruthless than they are now!

Good article, and it’s thoroughly researched and thanks for the information, but in my opinion the title is way off. There is no way that Australia would have even come close to winning the world cup had they used a team full of young stars. As good as our next generation could be, you have to look at other countries and the players coming through. I agree that we have very good youth, but it probably would have been more sensible to say that we could win the Asian cup with a team of youngsters, not the World cup.

Could a Socceroos squad full of youngsters win the World Cup?

I also think that Wanderers will take home both sets of three points this week, as they have also been improving steadily in the last few weeks.

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Rounds 15 and 16

I think that Central Coast will win against the Jets. In the last derby, they did very well only to have their letting them down in the last 20 mins. Since then they have improved dramatically and will be full of confidence after going 2 matches unbeaten and more than doubling the points they got before Christmas. Also, I think that Glory-Adelaide will be a very tight match, with neither team letting the other through until right at the end when Glory will snatch a late goal to take the three points.

It’s no doubt that it has been a bit of a disappointing season for City, but if Warren Joyce can keep them in the finals series and maybe even into the semis, then they will be on the same level that they were last season. Is that a thing that the City board will be wanting? Since City are a young team and they have Manchester City as their sister club, I really think they should be at least making it into the grand final this year.

What is Warren Joyce doing to Melbourne City?

But you have to admit, Le Fondre’s goal was a banger!

What is Warren Joyce doing to Melbourne City?

Don’t worry, we’ll come back to win the league! Last night it wasn’t the tactics, it was the players. They just weren’t in it. I agree though, Wales and Fornaroli would work, whereas Ikodomidis and Fornaroli wouldn’t work because Ikodomidis would outshine Fornaroli.

What is Warren Joyce doing to Melbourne City?

No Le Fondre all day

Keogh for Fornaroli, are you serious?

As you said, if Riley McGree keeps this up then he will be first next week. I think that Lachlan Wales should be moved up to fifth if he continues doing really well, as the only thing that has kept him from taking his game to the next level is the formation that Warren Joyce has chosen.

Riser Rankings: January edition

The owner of CCM is staying in the Central Coast for 7 weeks, which is the longest he’s stayed in a long time, and it’s not as if the Mariners are having a wonderful season, so it’s most likely that he is looking for a buyer. In the past, he has seemed uninterested in the club and I can’t see why he would want to invest money in the club now, but it’s not as if it couldn’t happen. Thanks for the info by the way!

Yes, I couldn’t believe it when he was demanding that much money, even though he had never played a professional game in his life! It’s like Messi going to cricket and asking for 3 million a year, it’s just stupid.

Petratos has not by any means had a good season. His delivery has been poor and it did not help when he missed that one-on-one in the Adelaide game. He is a good player, but not good enough for international level.

Questions the Socceroos must answer before the Asian Cup

I think that this time it will be different. If you can smash a team like Sydney FC, then solidly win the two next games (2-0 against the Mariners and 4-1 against Brisbane Roar) and then continue that form against the team that has spent the most money and got the biggest players this season, then I believe that they have what it takes to continue this consistency through all the way until the end of the league.

How has Mark Rudan made Wellington Phoenix one of the most exciting teams in the A-League

Yes, I was having a bit of trouble coming up with the name! I felt like Rudan needed some credit though, his strategy in the past few games has been working really well.

Graham Arnold said that he wanted Australia to play like Liverpool, so is that a hint that they could have a 4-3-3 with a false nine? If so, I would like to see Martin Boyle be given a chance in that false 9 position, as he has pace and if Nabbout was to start out on the left and Mabil on the right, then they would be able to cut inside, and Nabbout especially would really benefit from that. In the game against Lebanon Boyle was very exciting, and I think he would excel in that false nine position. Tommy Rogic could start in the position that Keita plays at Liverpool, Luongo could be the other mid and Mark Milligan could be a defensive mid. Also, I would like to see Ikodomidis start at least one game in the group stage, as he could be our Salah.

Questions the Socceroos must answer before the Asian Cup

Good preview! To be honest I don’t think the Mariners will start Tommy Oar. He is one of their key players, but I don’t think they’ll risk starting him, as he has been out for a while, and the worst thing that could happen to the Mariners right now is to have him be on a season-long injury. Also, another formation they could go with is a 3-4-3, which means that Clisby and Millar can be in more advanced positions and can try to whip some crosses in.
