Fowler is unbeholden to anyone here. It’s a huge asset, agree. It was imperative that the club appointed a cleanskin. He now needs to be utterly ruthless.

Fowler or Castro? That's a no-brainer

Is he… Not sure I can would describe him that’s way.

I personally love the fact that he doesn’t remotely need the money.

Your other skill, Fad, is disingenuous oversimplification.

From past viewing you can also do a fine number in denial of reality when called upon – viz the ratings crisis and it’s ramifications.

Well speaking as a roar supporter who called Aloisi as a disaster from the start, I’m happy with Fowler in the job so let’s hope I’m right this time too.

It’s an article of dubious quality

If ever I saw a man in denial…

Actually Punter I think your club has first rate fans. The Cove in particular are great value. (this is my mobile phone moniker)
I don’t dislike SFC… It’s more disappointment really. The club promised so much during that time first season. In the the end Lavicka and Arnold delivered titles but little excitement. I had hoped that Sydney would be something special and from players to coaches to its wildly unsuitable stadium, it’s fallen well short.

A grand final at Optus Stadium in Perth is exactly what the A-League needs

I lived in Auckland for a decade and my experience suggests a contrary perspective. Certainly you have a simplistic view of the demographics, and rugby dominates no more than AFL in the southern states. Worth bearing in mind the 20000 people who attended the last game in Auckland.
Agree that the Nix aren’t working at the present. They need an Auckland rivalry, but there is no sign of that as a possibility.
Personally I suspect that this season might be be their last.

Rudan hints strongly at Phoenix departure

With our small population we need teams in Wellington and Auckland if we want a 16 team league.
People running down the Nix are losing sight of the bigger picture.
Between Auckland and Wellington, NZ delivers a significant urban population to the A League.

Let’s just hope that this is an off season full of positive action

Only finals can save this A-League season

Fad, you are akin to a drowning man trying to stay afloat on a splinter

Surging Sky Blues put heat on Perth Glory

The A League is collapsing in fast forward. A number of us have been aware of the gravity of the problem for several seasons but I don’t think anyone anticipated the speed of the decline.

Fad, you are in general such a lucid poster, but your lack of objectivity with regard to the commercial context of the A League is perplexing.

Promotion and relegation in the A-League won't happen any time soon

Your disconnect with reality is truly impressive.

Yep. Anyone who thinks differently doesn’t know the place.

Ok… So that last comment went straight to the mods so perhaps that answers my question.

When are we going to start talking about the football again?

That’s it. Keep the bar nice and low.

Seriously Waz, grow up. You’re a middle aged professional.

Easy road to 2022? Forget it!

That should be “England can put on the park…”

The three keys to fixing the Socceroos

Well I just watched England versus Czech Republic. England started an 18 year old and by the end had another 18 year old and a 20 year old on the pitch.

The gulf between our players and the players England cannot put on the park is sobering, to say that you least.

To think that we could once field a team that’s could compete with England and look at the chasm now. It hasn’t worked, has it? Junior development, the A League… Whatever we’ve been doing hasn’t worked.

The three keys to fixing the Socceroos

Robbie Kruse is most certainly not playing at the top level.

Always a good idea to fact check.

The criticism of Fox is mystifying

They obviously put that value on the product. How times have they changed, and fast.
