Deja vu for Fury over Gold Coast Utd

Twelve months after witnessing North Queensland's demise, ex-Fury boss Rabieh Krayem says he is feeling a sense of deja vu as Gold Coast United battles for A-League survival.

In March last year Krayem thought he had done enough to secure a one-year conditional licence for the cash-strapped Fury, only for Football Federation Australia to axe the club after just two seasons.

Krayem said in hindsight he could now see the warning signs for the Fury - and believed history was repeating.

His comments came after FFA boss Ben Buckley said United's fate would be decided "over the course of the next few weeks" to assess a bid headed by Gold Coast mayoral candidate Tom Tate and entrepreneur Geoffrey Schuhkraft after stripping billionaire Clive Palmer of the licence.

Krayem called on the FFA to put the Gold Coast football community out of their misery and reveal their plans on the tourist strip.

"If they don't want a team on the Gold Coast then why not just come out and tell people that?" he said in a statement prepared by Palmer's Football Australia.

"If FFA were serious about maintaining a club on the Gold Coast then they would be taking a different approach.

"They would be positively announcing they want a team and would work with the football and business communities to put a team together.

"Without that positive statement it's Fury deja vu. All their language and comments have been aligned with how they interacted with the Fury."

The FFA have asked the Gold Coast bid team to guarantee $5 million in just a matter of weeks amid rumours they will rush in a western Sydney team next season.

Krayem was still ruing the Fury's demise - and the way it was handled.

"A lot of effort was put in by the guys who were trying to save the Fury and really, at the end of the day, we were blindsided when they pulled the plug on it," he said.

"In hindsight, we should have taken the warning signs that the whole delay was to get through the season and once the season was over the club was going to be pulled.

"At the end of it many of us thought we had just been led down the garden path and there was never going to be any green light."

Meanwhile, Schuhkraft welcomed the news that a decision on the Gold Coast would be made in the next few weeks and hoped to sit down and discuss United's future with the FFA soon.

"At this moment it is critical all parties put their differences aside and everyone comes to the table with the best interests of the game at heart," he told AAP.

"We need open and honest dialogue, everyone to work as one team to achieve a common outcome that benefits the game."
