How exactly are we supposed to field our strongest side in our first FFA cup match on August 5th, when not only will some of our players but also Gombau has A-League All-stars commitments from August 1st to the 10th?
Football Director
Hi John,

Thanks for your email. All teams involved in matches on 5th August will be playing under similar conditions with some players involved in the All Star match. Obviously our coach has a commitment with the All Stars but we are confident that our support coaching staff is able to cover for one match without any disruption.

Regards
Brad
Hi, Firstly when will the 2014/15 fixtures be released? Secondly, will Adelaide United field a strong team in the FFA Cup? There is only one chance to be the first ever winner of something. We all understand the timing of the competition, the need to give game time to youth players and possible squad rotations. However I always take pride in hearing AUFC mentioned as the only Australian Side to make the ACL final. There is some history to be made in winning the FFA Cup first up. I am sure I am not the only fan who wants us to take this competition seriously.
CEO
Hi Brad.

The fixtures are due out any day now. As you can imagine it has been very difficult trying to finalise venues given the complexities with the addition of the Asian Cup in 2015.

In regards to the FFA Cup we will definitely be fielding our strongest team and will be trying to win it. What we will need to do is ensure that we don¹t risk any players who are not quite ready but play the best players who are fit and ready to go with the intention of winning each game.

Hi
With the Asian Cup coming up in the middle of the HAL season. Many countries will want to play trial matches. Like the Socceroos playing a local Brazilian club would AU considering setting up a friendly against a national team? It would be nice to see someone play considering Adelaide is missing out on the Asian Cup completely.
I feel AU vs Japan with Kagawa and Honda playing would be a great game to see!

Thanks
Football Director
We wouldn¹t discount the possibility however given we will be in full swing during the A-League season it may be difficult to schedule.

During the season and pre-season, is first team and youth team training open to the public to watch. If so where & how frequently do they train ? Just Curious
Football Director
Training is usually always open to the public unless notified. At this stage the venues and times for training during the pre-season are yet to be confirmed however we will let all supporters know via the club website as soon as possible.

Thanks FD

Firstly, Do you guys scout for the best u18, reserve and first team players or just the best young first team players of the NPL. Secondly, You said you look for a range of criteria when scouting, what aspects other than consistency are high up on the scouting list ? Thank you in advance. Please reply ASAP
Football Director
We are looking mostly at young players in the first teams but also any very good younger players coming through the other teams including the NTC program. Regarding the criteria it is based on the style and philosophy of the A-league team. There are many aspects for consideration. As I said the main thing is that you are playing consistently well and that you fit the playing style required.
Mohamed Ali
Can any local player tryout for the youth team? If so how? If not, why? I want to follow in the footsteps of Awer Mabil who apparently started training with the youth team aged 15. However, I am currently 18 and I am worried that my age will hinder my opportunities to play for Adelaide United in the future. I know Nikola Miluesnic, who plays for my team (White city) 1st team who played for the youth last season aged 20.May you please respond ASAP. Thank You
Football Director
Hi Mohamed, thank you for your email regarding the Youth team. We will be scouting all players from the local competition over the next few months. Players will be considered based on a number of criteria. However the most impotent aspect is that you are playing well for your team on a consistent basis. If you have any questions please don¹t hesitate to ask.

Hi I was wondering i know it might be a bit early but do you have a time frame for when new membership prices will come out
CEO
Hi Gerry, all prices and packages are in the process of being finalised. At this stage we are not able to provide a time frame on when we expect to release this information.

Hi

I was wondering now that the players have returned from Spain playing in the MIC tournament. What is the plan for the squad now? Will they play local sides or play in another youth tournament?

Thanks
Football Director
Hi Stuckey,

The youth team development program players players are all now on a break.They will return to training at the same time as the A-League squad and will then start a similar program to that of the senior team. This will include practice games against local sides.

DEar MR CEO, I'm writing to let you know how much i have enjoyed seeing the reds perform this year, i've been to pretty well every home game and have enjoyed the reds playing style immensely, I am so pleased with the coach and his philosphy with football and its so great to watch, the first 9 games were a difficult time for the club but it was there you could see it the playing style , champing to score goals even when we lost (especially in the game against brisbane) round 4? not sure , anyway even if we don't get there this year i dont care, this is the football many many australians want to see and played in australia and my dad, son and grandson will be back next year , thank you so much, cheers and go the reds.
CEO
Dear Phil
Thanks for the feedback. It is true that there was some outside pressure after the first 10 games or so. It all had to be put in perspective, we appointed an overseas coach who was largely unknown and of course he in turn inherited a playing list which was virtually unknown to him. All credit to him and the players for their unity. We are all enjoying their performances.

Hi

With a number of NYL players returning to their NPL clubs where are AUFC getting the rest of their players from to fill the squad for the MIC tournament? SA NTC?

Very much looking forward to hearing about this squad and its development!

Thanks
Football Director
Dear Stuckey,

Our NYL Development squad is made up of players identified by our coaching staff as potential NYL players for the next season and/or beyond.

They have come mainly from the NPL and SPL but some have also been identified from the NTC and AIS programs and of course existing players from the last NYL squad who are still eligible and considered for the
2014/15 NYL squad.
