On May 26 of 2015, John Aloisi penned a managerial contract with the Australian A-League club Brisbane Roar and the 40 year old Australian coach was able to secure the 3rd spot of the league with 48 points.
Things have taken a huge turn for the worse for John Aloisi and his squad as this new season of 2016-17 has seen Brisbane Roar dropping points at a consistent basis and getting negative results instead of the impressive performances and results that they used to secure in his debut season.
Only 2 matches of the Australian A-League have been played so far but Brisbane Roar has not kicked off in the way that John Aloisi would have wanted it to as he witnessed his squad sustain a draw against Melbourne Victory in the opening match of the season on October 7 and 9 days later losing 0-4 against the Newcastle Jets.
The managing director of Brisbane Roar, Mark Kingsman has recently hinted the possibility of having the contract of John Aloisi extended as Kingsman said: Continue reading “Brisbane Roar wants to keep hold of John Aloisi on a long term deal”
Brisbanr Roar FC were shed in bad light when information was made to the public that the club was owing players and coaches their wages.
The club has now issued a public statement to the cause.
The A-League outfit used their official twitter handle to manage the damage the news could do to the brand. Tweeting from @brisbaneroar, the statement reads:
“All Hyundai A-League players, coaches and administration staff of the club have been paid. In addition, superannuation payments for all players, coaches and administration staff are up to date.”
The news caused a lot of reaction from fans and members of the public, so the managing director of the club Daniel Cobb met with officials of Football Federation Australia (FFA) to discuss the issue. It is public knowledge that the Indonesian based owners of the club, the Bakrie Group have been in the market for buyers for at least a year now.
After the meeting, both parties issued a statement regarding the issue to calm nerves. Cobb said: “I have briefed the FFA [Football Federation Australia] and PFA [Professional Footballers Australia] to assure them that player, coach and administration staff wages and superannuation are up to date. Today’s meeting with FFA was brought about by a default from the Bakrie Group on the recapitalisation of the club.

Aaron Mooy’s agent says the move to Manchester City is not a bad one and would not go the way of his compatriot Luke Brattan.
Brattan had joined as a free agent from his club Brisbane Roar last October but he was sent on loan immediately he joined. He was sent on loan to Bolton Wanderers in the lower division but he didn’t get a chance to play ant game until he returned to the Etihad where he trained with the academy team.
Mooy is placed on Premier League wages of $4 million a season. The Australian midfielder’s agent Paddy Dominguez addressed rising concerns about the player’s future going the way of Brattan. Dominguez said: “People would be stupid to think that either Aaron or I just jumped after seeing Manchester City’s headlights. He could have made more money going to the Middle East or China. He has gone to Manchester City for a specific reason. There’s a very well laid out plan for him, and that will all be revealed very soon.”
