Good post mate. But don't you think it's time to change that sig quote?
I'm an ex Melbourne Roar fan now living OS. There are/were a few of us down there. The big number of Roar fans you will find in Melbourne are the Franjic family. I remember one game at AAMI when there was 20 plus something of them. Contacting them should be at the top of your list.
I'm up for it.Buying a membership for another club to see some games and support the HAL but not changing my allegences!
