Great to see Rochina in our starting lineup. Shame there isn't room for Ribeiro and Henley.

Not sure why Murphy's in there -I'd have gone with Vuckevic personally

And then people doubt whether there were dodgy dealings going on. Our squad is the result of that utter nit wit of a football manager imposter Kean and his oscar worthy crying agent. I don't know who half of them are either. Disgraceful situation Berg has been left with. He has a big job on

get rid of 10 players and get 5 good quality players in defence and wing, by Jan2013 - two strikers will be ready Best and Goodwillie.

Hope this will make the season.
