Even before the Albanian and Bahraini internationals came on board, I thought things looked pretty good.

McKay is a loss; could we see Brioch moving into the midfield and Visconte or Meyer into that attacking role?  Can Danning regain his lustre?  What McKay did – elevating himself from a good A-league player to a very good A-league player (at an age when that kind of development usually doesn’t happen), will anybody else make that kind of step up?  Looking at you, Massimo.
