Sydney FC must get their next coach right

It’s time Sydney FC made good on their promise to be potentially one of Asia’s biggest clubs. If ever the Sky Blues are to become a serious force, they cannot afford to get another coaching appointment wrong.

Service, sacrifice and, um, selling the game

SPIRO: Good luck to Benji going back to NRL – he’ll need it!

First of all, a confession. I was positive about Benji Marshall’s chances of making a good late career in rugby. There was a possibility, I believed, that he could be an interesting inside centre or fullback.
