I wanted to see him coach for us, shame if we can't make that happen. Bummed, but honored to have seen such  great player in orange for years

Aloisi will have to come out and explain this situation, otherwise many fans will want him gone.

He can't be that stupid to not offer Broich anything at all. We should be able to offer him something. Whether Broich would accept it, that's another matter.

Jesus can you imagine Broich coming to Brisbane next year with Victory? The thought is sickening.

This day was always gonna come but it still hurts badly.

I can understand that he wants to continue playing so best of luck to him and I hope he'll be able to come back to the Roar once he retires.

Coaching appears a few years away at least at this stage.

He (Aloisi) said at this point he didn?t know whether he could offer me a new deal and how much he could offer me, so it left me in a really uncertain position,? Broich revealed on Tuesday

Well bloody find out then Aloisi, ffs. If the club are willing to let this legend go I will be furious, I was always under the impression it was never about the money with Broich so this seems like Aloisi does not want him. What a bunch of stooges, so they are just going to let him walk away and now there is a big chance he will be playing for another club in the A-League, what a disgrace.

According to the article JA has told Broich that he can't guarantee him a spot so I'm thinking Broich has made the decision to cut ties now so there will be no lingering negotiations and he'll be able to walk away with a clear mind and open to offers.

I wont mind as much if he plays some where overseas but if he plays for another club in the A-League, I will be beyond furious. Rather pissed off to be honest, this type of news should really be kept quiet until after the season/finals end.

Easy fix.

Get rid of Arana & Katabian (remember him?). They are soaking up $$$$$ for no reason.

Offer to Thomas.

Surely JA isn't that stupid to let him go easily.

He has been one of the best on park for us, not only in the past but this season also.

Great players are hard to come by in the Aleague and this guy is a legend

Well that's not the way to treat absolute legend of this club . Very disappointed in handling this by the club . To see him play potentially  against us if he signs with another club here that would be devastating.

Not sure what Aloisi is up to but I don't  like this at all . What's next ? Giving Arana/Pepper new contract ?
Title: Re: Broich confirmed leaving at end of season
Post by: scribbo on April 18, 2017, 11:58:57 PM
I would like to know the full story but I am amazed that Aloisi cannot find a spot for him next season. He is still better than about seventy percent of the players going around in the A-League, I thought he was applying for Australian citizenship.

He is a legend and should be shown some respect, Aloisi should get his finger out and make some sort of an offer to possibly make him stay on.

I know it is a team game but without Thomas I very much doubt we would have three titles in the cabinet.

I agree, if Arana and Pepper are here next season then what a load of crap.

According to the article Broich is quoted as saying "We?ve got capable people in charge. They just chose one path, and this path happens to not include me, but I?m sure the Roar will be very competitive in the future,? he said.

That reads like he is being pushed out the door.

I think it probably is best that it came out now, at least we can give him a proper send off (I suspect if we are leading with 5 to go he will be subbed and get a long standing ovation)

I don't want to see him go but in all honesty he is no where near as good as he once was, and we have had to shoe horn the way Aloisi wants to play to suit him and Holleman posing in the same team. It really took Broich 5 or 6 rounds to look like he was up to speed and that will probably be longer as he gets older. He is definitely a club legend no matter what happens and it has been an absolute honour to watch him play.

I don't understand all the disgust at JA and the Club..

FACT: Thomas Broich is 36 turning 37 in January. The only way his form can go now is downwards.

I believe JA would've liked to have kept Broich on but at this time he couldn't give Broich a definitive answer and it was Broich who made the decision to settle his future right now and not wait to see what could possibly pan out over the off season.

I think there is an expectation from some that, because of everything he has done for the club, Broich would be offered another contract no matter what. I certainly don't agree with that, as there is a limit to everything. If Broich was demanding huge money and a starting spot every game, that is too much. I do think, however, that Aloisi and the club should have by now, been able to provide him with a solid offer that would keep him at the club. A bench role with a reasonable wage so he can have another year with not too much pressure before retiring from football at the club he obviously wanted to finish his career with.

While his fitness is not what is once was, he is still absolute class and could give us 30 minutes of genius per game. 30 minutes with Broich on the pitch could change a game. Hell, he still runs harder and chases the ball more than half of the other players in the league.

In addition to this, we currently have a number of players (Pepper, Arana, Katebian) coming off contract who offer no where near what Broich would (not only on the park, but off the park with fans). It should be an easy decision to say, not re-sign Pepper and Katebian and offer Broich that money (obviously this would not work if Broich is wanting a big payday).

I understand he is a club a legend but he is well past his prime and it showed in many performances this season albeit that he had a couple of blinders in recent games.

Many have been whinging about all the over 30's in the first eleven but now you whinge because the oldest hasn't been kept!

All club legends eventually move on - other wise a team will turn into a nursing home.

Did Liverpool keep Gerrard? Did Chelsea keep Lampard?

As for joining the coaching staff - he is s complete novice. He needs to get some certificates and some experience before he joins an a League team with limited resources and playing staff.

I agree he is past his prime but I still think that he is good enough to be playing another year with the Roar and Aloisi should have been in the position to make him an offer of some kind, whether he accepted it or not is another story but he should have been made an offer.

As has been said thirty minutes or so starting or off the bench would be ideal. He is a game changer and those players are so hard to find.

After getting past the initial breaking of the news i guess it really has come to this for TB. Flashes of brilliance but a body that age has caught up with. I think the reason so many people are upset is they were unprepared for this being announced RIGHT NOW. But if he has to go, what better way than to go with another piece of silverware hey!

I'm sad but not surprised.
I hope Thomas is not the greatest player ever to play for the club. I hope someone comes along that we begin by comparing to Thomas, but then eclipses him.
But for the foreseeable future, Thomas Broich is the greatest player ever to have played at the club.
Thanks mate.

Anyone know why now? 
Did Thomas bring this on?
There are lots of contract discussions to be had and normally contract discussions will occur after the finals in a few weeks time.
Plenty has been said about the age of the squad, but when theory becomes reality it still hurts.
With Petratos gone, now Broich going, and surely Arana to go, I would expect some new acquisitions.
I am consoling myself with the hope that this means we keep JC. But there is only one Thomas Broich. He is a legend.

Best player the A-league has had. No other player has had his impact on the pitch over a sustained period like him.

We've been lucky to have him.
Title: Re: Broich confirmed leaving at end of season
Post by: mellod on April 19, 2017, 11:40:45 AM
It is going to be a long long time before we see another player like Broich in this league. The circumstances around his signing, the re-ignition of his passion for football, his love for Brisbane... he was a very rare find. Any players who match his skill will quickly go elsewhere. They certainly won't be here for 7 years and be talking about wanting to coach the club.

So what makes you think Broich is a NOVICE coach???? You know Thomas????? Fact is that he is the coach and the AA's train the team. Broich is the biggest threat to the AA's. Thomas has the pedigree... If the aa's combined IQ is above 100 i'd be surprised. Why do you all think Thomas talked about coaching recently. Its not that Thomas has turned anything down or asked to much... He's not being offered anything... Nothing. zilch. There is no talks. Go check the club website it's all there.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very sad news, truly the best player Brisbane and the HAL has seen. I understand that he is passed his peak, but he's still head and shoulders above most. What are the chances that we'll get someone even close to his current abilities? Anyone who can match him will cost too much.
Regardless, i hope we give him the send off he deserves.

I have just seen Craig Moore's comment on The World Game Site where it says that he said an "open-ended invitation" for Broich to join the Roar's operations remains in place, with the German having previously expressed a desire to take up a coaching position, but in the short term the likelihood remains that he could lineup against his old side next season. The former Roar defender described the decision as a choice between re-signing Broich or Joe Coletti, the young midfielder who has emerged as a star of the future.
Moore was critical of Broich making the announcement now in the lead up to Friday's game.

Disappointed as I am, if it means keeping JC it is some consolation.
Put it another way.
Would it be any less disappointing if we were to keep our oldest player at the expense of our best younger players going elsewhere?
Something has to give. But it is still sad.

I don't rate Caletti to flat footed. I already seeing clubs pick him out.  Same problem as Clut. Remember him. Don't worry were going to lose young players as well. But we will keep Caletti.

Your asking the wrong question... The question should be why are the club saying nothing??? The could have made a killing but they don't understand how to promote things. If you feel it will be a  disruptive preperation then thats up to you. It could been a celebration. The club are small time thinkers. When you do something repetitively over and over you become that.

Many have been whinging about all the over 30's in the first eleven but now you whinge because the oldest hasn't been kept!

Did Liverpool keep Gerrard? Did Chelsea keep Lampard?

As for joining the coaching staff - he is s complete novice. He needs to get some certificates and some experience before he joins an a League team with limited resources and playing staff.
Its always sad when a legend's time is up but I totally agree with you on this one . Better a year too short than a year too long

Bugger, definitely the best player the league has ever had, and probably the best player I'll ever see in orange.

My whole family have been huge fans, and more often than not, the prospect of seeing number 22 has brought them along when they would otherwise have stayed at home.

I've never subscribed to the idea that age is a barrier. If you're good enough you're old enough cuts both ways in my book.

That said, Thomas is not the player he was three years ago. I totally agree with Miron, better one year too short.

I'm also glad the announcement has been made. It's highly likely this will be his last Lang Park appearance and I, for one, can't wait to give him the send off he deserves.

Can the club retire his number? They damn well should.

Broich has been brilliant and still shines.
Not only is he quality, but also versatility with the ability to play down the left wing or behind the front three. Seems we are losing two players and not one, and need two to replace him.
With Oar to cover one half of Thomas and Holman covering the other half. 
With both being on marquee wages and both with Socceroo pedigree, it speaks volumes for just how good Thomas has been and how hard to replace.
With Mackay also  at the club, and still commanding a decent wage one would think, making Thomas some sort of offer without insult would have been problematic.
Thomas has been so good that the cost of replacement under the cap rules seems a large part of the reason that he has not been made any sort of offer.
Throw in the cost to keep one or two younger ones and sadly it seems like a no brainer.

Thomas has been so good that the cost of replacement under the cap rules seems a large part of the reason that he has not been made any sort of offer.
Throw in the cost to keep one or two younger ones and sadly it seems like a no brainer.

He would have taken a massive pay cut to stay. Your making it up as you go. The cap is the excuse. I just watched the live switch. If JA could articulate better he may also coach better.

What did he have to say?
On Broich:
* JA has great relationship with him. Good friends.
* JA said that Broich had come to them a few weeks back to say he was keen to play on (earlier on Broich hadn't made a decision on retiring or playing on). JA said nothing had been guaranteed but that there were Cap issues to be worked through. It was Broich who made the decision to leave.
* JA was asked if there were any problems and he said no. Stated he had called Broich the other night to check up on him and ask if all was well and Broich told him it was all good and lets concentrate on the upcoming game.
* Nothing but respect for Broich but that peripheral stuff has to wait as full concentration required for WSW game and everyone at the club including Broich is hungry to win the title.

I understand he is a club a legend but he is well past his prime and it showed in many performances this season albeit that he had a couple of blinders in recent games.

Many have been whinging about all the over 30's in the first eleven but now you whinge because the oldest hasn't been kept!

All club legends eventually move on - other wise a team will turn into a nursing home.

Did Liverpool keep Gerrard? Did Chelsea keep Lampard?

As for joining the coaching staff - he is s complete novice. He needs to get some certificates and some experience before he joins an a League team with limited resources and playing staff.
Its always sad when a legend's time is up but I totally agree with you on this one . Better a year too short than a year too long

Bugger, definitely the best player the league has ever had, and probably the best player I'll ever see in orange.

My whole family have been huge fans, and more often than not, the prospect of seeing number 22 has brought them along when they would otherwise have stayed at home.

I've never subscribed to the idea that age is a barrier. If you're good enough you're old enough cuts both ways in my book.

That said, Thomas is not the player he was three years ago. I totally agree with Miron, better one year too short.

I'm also glad the announcement has been made. It's highly likely this will be his last Lang Park appearance and I, for one, can't wait to give him the send off he deserves.

Can the club retire his number? They damn well should.
Broich has been brilliant and still shines.
Not only is he quality, but also versatility with the ability to play down the left wing or behind the front three. Seems we are losing two players and not one, and need two to replace him.
With Oar to cover one half of Thomas and Holman covering the other half. 
With both being on marquee wages and both with Socceroo pedigree, it speaks volumes for just how good Thomas has been and how hard to replace.

You are right. I am just trying to work through the news as best I can and yes sure I am speculating and making my own observations like a lot of people.

It sounded like JA was caught a little of guard by Thomas announcing quite recently that he wanted to stay. Again, just my reading of it. Others may read it differently.
JA also stressed that he has a good relationship with Thomas. I take that at face value. Thomas doesn't look the kind of guy that would make it hard for JA. More cynical people may read that differently.
A lot of people seem to be using this to beat the anti JA drum.
Third in the A League two seasons in a row. Still in the ACL. Everything to play for despite very trying circumstances. Some memorable performances along the way. Some exciting young players coming through.  I think JA is doing all right. He has already surpassed what I was expecting at the start of the season.
This site has been full of negative comments about the age of the team. But as soon as JA indicates he is transitioning from old order to new he get criticised.
I am sad to see Thomas leaving. Half of me is still hoping it will not happen. The other half is accepting that it inevitable.
Perhaps we need to focus on WSW now. Again. That is just my opinion.

Mckay did not deserve a contract extension, but got one and has been poor all season, literally can not pass one metre. Cost us the premiership last season as well.
When Mckay is off form or not playing, you will see the whole performance of the team drops. Even in the games we win. Mckay has been such a pivotal part of the team for so long, that his performance or absence has such a large affect. When you see Mckay on game and performing well, you can almost guarantee a win.
So I believe he deserved a contract extension. He's 34 though, so he should be expecting lower salaries, and if he thinks he can get more elsewhere then I wouldn't mind if he moved on, club legend and all.
Yes, his poor performances are becoming more common, but I still think he has a lot to offer, but for this final series I hope he is only used as a sub in Melbourne. I also hope that the captaincy is passed on to someone else (Kristensen?) for next season.

Harry's inside info was correct re Broich and the 3 stooges. I too brought this up  a few weeks ago.
It's not just opinion.
They simply don't want him in the team.
He is more than just a great player but a mentor to the youngsters, you can see that in the warm ups.

To Harry and Medley:

Are we to infer that Broich did not like the style of football JA was pressing and used his influence to try to get back to a more possession style? Certainly comments he has made suggest he didn't appreciate the direction that had been taken? Was there some kind of players' revolt as perhaps Mulvey faced?

I did not mean to ignore Harry's comments specifically. As I said above, I am just trying to make sense of what I read and see myself and sharing my interpretation.
I assume that most people are doing the same, and so if someone has inside information to share, it really would help by providing some context around where it has come from.
Otherwise it will get and obviously has got lost in the noise.
One of the things I did was join the dots ...... and it is purely my interpretation.
Mackay and Broich currently get marquee wages. Broich's contract is running out. Mckay is contracted until next year and remains captain. Two newbies are coming in as marquee players. So if one out of Mckay or Broich  is to make way, it was always going to be Broich. Presumably McKay still wants a hefty sum.
But if there really is more to it, then please don't throw out one liners and please provide a bit more meat on the bones.
When I saw Thomas and JA talking on the touchline during the NIX game it looked like a coach and senior player consulting.
As I said. I just go off what I see and hear and try to figure it out.

I don't profess to have any mole in the camp at all, just one or two former insider friends with current player connections. So lets call it what it is...pure hearsay! Now you can take this with a pinch of salt but everything I have seen happen in the past backs it up....for me! What I hear is that Ross and Moore are pulling the strings and John is the puppet! Both are "grubs"!! (Ross in the tunnel, Josh Mclogan's reason for leaving lies etc)
I don't believe it has anything to do with playing style (Murk) but rather the professional incompetence and poor man management from the above three. That's the wrong direction I reckon Broich was referring to. Perhaps you can throw in poor recruitment, selection and loss of promising youth players too.
I don't think there's any sort of player revolt going on. Lets face it why would Pepper or Arana or the young guns do that?
To me Broich epitomises our playing spirit and club culture (this has been a huge part of my belief in the club), I don't get that from the Aloisi's or Craig Moore. They are there for themselves.
We, on the other hand, are the club! Most of us will support our team until we cant, me included. What I wont do though is wave the flag regardless of how management treat our players, particularly legendary ones!

Anyway....lets smash WSW tomorrow night. Go the Roar!!

Yeah, this. At least we haven't got as bad as some of the keyboard warriors on Facebook. There have been plenty of times in the past where I haven't agreed with aspects of what management was doing. Be it Miron's coaching style, everyone being on the piss with Frank, signing the Chinese Beckham, I could go on. Point being, this is another decision I don't agree with, admittedly it hurts a bit more because it's Thomas, but I'm also tempering this feeling with the knowledge that he's 37 with a dodgy ankle, and I'm just so glad to have seen all the years that have come before this one. At least we're still playing good football, we haven't plumbed the depths of the old days (S2-5) where you used to turn up and watch us lose almost every time and it could be worse, I could follow the Sea Bogans.

I agree with the part about Thomas, he always gives his all. He was a big part of why we used to overrun teams in the final minutes and came back from the dead so many time, but with his ageing legs going so has our ability to overrun teams. however i dont really agree with the second part, particularly with Moore i cant really recall any time where Moore has come out to big note himself, he generally works behind the scene and only comes out to tow the club line, he seems to work for the club.

I think he really does love the club. I still remember him as the player that came out to lead the roar a couple of days after having surgury for testicular cancer. he definitely burned a lot of goodwill to the fans by speaking out against Ange and was ultimately proved to be in the wrong but at the time i really think he truely believed that ange's approach was not going to be successful and was wrong for the club (it was a revolution in the aleague). the club had come off its best season in 08-09 under frank and was going ok (3w3d3l) sitting mid table when frank was sacked and sank to the worst finish ever (9th 1 point off last) under ange. Ange then sold the 3 most exciting players (zullo, Oar, sarota,) released our best striker (van dijk) and pretty much gutted the squad and replaced them with untried, or no name players. Ange himself was pretty much unemployable at the time as well with his results with the young socceroos and i think Moore was looking at that and was truly worried about the direction.

I dont know about the Aloisi's, neither have done or said anything that makes me think they love the club but they have re-dedicated for another 2 years even after being screwed around by the owners, even with speculation of an easy out to Adl so there is some affinity there. who knows maybe Aloisi will be the next to revolutionise the aleague playing style and getting rid of broich is the first step (i highly doubt it given the make up of the squad already for next season, but maybe he will find the next Broich, someone that will become the next Brisbane legend)

in the mean time I have 2 more chances to see broich at suncorp and i will enjoy every minute that i get.

Ha Ha. Stranger things have happened.
When you sit down and think it through, the likelihood of Roar winning tonight, flying to Thailand midweek, playing, going to Melbourne who are resting this week and who have no travel, beating Melbourne, and then Perth or  City beating Sydney next week to engineer a GF in Brisbane, it really is 5000-1 Leicester City type odds. This plus Thomas's obvious love of Brisbane explains why he made the announcement earlier in the week. Given only a handful of diehards are coming to the ACL games, this is Thomas's last hurrah in front of the home supporters.
I would think the odds of us winning in Thailand and beating Ulsan are marginally higher. There is a slim possibility of Thomas playing an ACL game here after Ulsan game maybe. But if we lose in Thailand then the Ulsan game will be a dead rubber for us. No guarantee he would even play.
I am still hoping for a miracle but realistically this is Thomas's send off.
