A few weeks ago, Mike Tuckerman posed the question “what is up with Brisbane Roar crowds?”. His article was focused on Roar home games, but it might surprise many to know that Brisbane are the second-worst drawing away team of any current A-League club, ahead of only Wellington Phoenix.
There can be no doubt that we, the fans, have made our point.
I have been hesitant to again add to the growing deluge of opinions regarding the fan issue, but would like to give a fan’s perspective in reply to the several excellent outsider views posted by Roar expert John Duerden recently.
The hot topic in Australian football this week is undoubtedly the Wellington Phoenix, and about whether they should stay or go.
Reports in the press on Thursday quoted Mike Charlesworth as stating that the FFA should be doing more to encourage the larger clubs to bring in more big name personalities to help promote the league.
With another World Cup campaign looming, I recently found myself checking old Socceroos results. Inevitably I came to the 1997 match against Iran in Melbourne that stopped us from going to France ’98.
