What I’d like to see from the Roar next year …

I don’t quite know what to make of Mike Mulvey … a lot of the soundbites about him are about his “no BS” policy … it sounds Harry Redknapp-ish … more emotional than intellectual … but i dunno if that is the full story.  the team has gone out there with a plan, with good movement and played some good footy.  So does he have a geeky side that he doesn’t talk about.  Well, he gets to recruit and set everything up over the off-season.  Time will tell?  cough – i am copping out on this one – cough.  I love the idea of controlling, probing, stretching, tire out the opposition football.  Spain as a boa constrictor.  But i don’t think Mulvey will take them in that direction.  

What to make of Nichols?  He can be good.  He can also sulk half a season …

What to make of Halloran?  Not the greatest crosser of a ball … but he can hit them.  Doesn’t quite seem like he has a sense of the game.  More athlete than footballer.  And he is 20, so i don’t think that will change.  Could he be used better?  Ala Walcott, another speedster who isn’t a winger … “inside right” is what they used to call it i think.  Not a winger, a support striker who lurks in the right channel. 

Does Mass have a future with the Roar?  Would another club see him as a starter?  Hard to say.  Almost as marmite as Nichols … but without the stroppiness.  I like Mass, and a lustica bratten mass midfield sounds pretty nice to me. 

We’ll never see Jurman in a roar jersey again : ) … pity, as a CB he had everything he needed, except for the bits in between the ears.  Temperament, ability to size up the situation.  No and no. 

What would i like to see?  More of what they were doing at the end of the season.  I’d like to see young local players challenging for spots at every outfield position.  Be nice to see the roar aiming for the top … and giving themselves the best possible chance to win every game.
