South finally step out of the cotton wool for pre-season 2013. First up, a friendly against Malvern City this Wednesday, at Lakeside, at 7:30.
There are reports that recent re-re-acquisition Carl Recchia has done his knee. Not good news if true.
Fernando has changed his number from 15 to 8. Dimi Hatzimouratis has taken up Fernando's old number.
Young defender Matko Budimir has been offered a senior contract.
Marinos Gasparis is reportedly in terrific shape.
And 1960s multiple championship player George Papadopoulos has passed away.
I went and watched North Sunshine lose 2-1 to Sunshine George Cross in the first round of the Dockerty Cup at Chaplin Reserve. Kinnie and the last minutes of the match were the highlights.
And today I went and saw the Friendship Cup between Melbourne Croatia and Sydney Croatia. Not much of a game to be honest (even with four goals), but I did get to see Glen Trifiro play more forward passes in this match than he did for the whole of last season.
Also, some schmo got here after looking up 'south melbourne a-league 2013'. Do you know something that we perhaps don't know? Something that would turn everything we think we know about Australian soccer on its head?
Or do you perhaps think that we know something that we're not sharing? Something so ludicrously amazing to do with your query that, if I revealed it on these pages, eyeballs would literally explode?
Well, I don't. But if you know something, please share! We don't care if its ludicrous.
