Except that Staj wasn’t the coach at the time and you should remember who was the coach was.

Some proactive administration is a terrific sign for the A-Leagues

Brattan was never a midfield enforcer , he can make a slide tackle, however he is small against bigger opponents, and not fast enough either, he is known mainly for his passing and he was best at Roar years ago. Grant was the enforcer at Sydney FC. How does a midfield enforcer protect a playmaker, they can take revenge, and look where that got Ross Aloisi after Muscat hacked down Diego. Brattan should have been let go , I dont get how Corica lets go of Niewnhoff and keeps Brattan.

NSD?
sorry but once you say that your obviously a stooge.

The A-league has transfer fees to and from for every non A-league club in the world just not between A-league clubs.
I am still waiting for the news to come through of a single transfer fee so far from the NPL.
So the last change made no difference, and now we are supposed to believe having it between A-league clubs is going to make a difference.
Its just an excuse for the whiners and stooges.

What has transfer fees got to do with that. The only transfer fees not in place are between A-league anyone who says thats going to make a big difference is a stooge with an agenda.

How much will he be getting paid, zero marketing since the clubs took over, now they are going to poor millions down the drain on has beens. Channel 10 is a joke as well when they have a new show they market it for 2 months before hand every commercial break. The Big Bash got six months of marketing. Anything to do with the Soccerooos Matildas ALM_ALW, its 15 seconds on a few days before the event.

Nani’s imminent arrival to the A-League is exciting - here's why

McEnroe was just a hothead, Kygrios is a bit loony and has a victim mentality. I wouldn’t say their actions are planned. The Australian cricket team on the other hand if someone did their sledging on a tennis court, they wouldn’t last a set.

'He's that soft': Kyrgios whacks Tsitsipas over 'bully' jibe after Aussie's epic Wimbledon win

No player deserves Kyrgios doing them over this way more than Tsipitas, Tsipitas funny he talks about Kyrgios what about his forever toilet break against Murray. He knew Murray and his bad hip would be stuffed with a break just by coincidence takes a world record toilet break against him. Kyrgios has never done anything as dirty and calculating as that against another player.
Kyrgios should figure out that his trash talking which seems to be his main source of motivation these days, is going to be a lot more effective if he wins more.

Transfer fees mean one thing player salaries are less. What the PFA want is players to break contracts free of charge. APL is not opposed to transfer fees thats where your a fool when do they turn down a transfer fee from overseas. The no transfer fees between A-league clubs was a rule designed to prevent clubs getting around the salary cup. Now its more the case of pleasing the PFA as their moment of glory these days is getting players to break A-league contracts with whining.

So as near zero as you can get worldwide.
If your depending on that you and the other tools need to get your heads checked.

The A-League Women expansion highlights an exciting time to be a football fan

The W-league was already one of the worlds best women competitions.
Did anyone bother to notice.
Some of the City teams in the past were full of top internationals.
When you had most of the worlds best players in the USA and the summer playing Scandanavian leagues then it was easy to get them to come to Australia for the summer. You had most of the Matildas playing here as well. Then other European leagues have taken over in the money stakes, most notably England.
These changes it will cut out the top overseas players and cut out some of the Australian players who also are doing double seasons.
The benefit is there will be more local players getting paid than ever before, as the two timers and internationals are cut out. With Gustavsson involved who never watches any of the W-league by the looks of things whats the point though.
Since this change is going through at least you could ask that Van Egmond is never invited over as a guest player . Surely that is the biggest joke of a guest player in world history.
You could argue that it makes its better for locally based players but then they dont do the local double season either.

SCG 1989 West Indies when Border took 11 wickets, 18 wickets by the spinners

1-0! Lyon and Head - yep, Travis Head - rip through Sri Lanka for emphatic 10-wicket win

Its not just that India and England draw more eyeballs and crowds locally.
Its the foreign TV rights , India in particular the rights are huge, South Africa 60% of their boards revenue is from India.

IPL won’t kill Test cricket but international contests fading into background on global landscape

Pollard and Russel would have just gone to the EPL or NBA it wasn’t for the IPL?
Like the salaries in the IPL are anywhere the other 2.
I cant see how a cricketer is going to switch to another sport like clicking their fingers.
Why not go for the money in MLB the sports are more similiar..
How many foreign players in the IPL and how much are they paid.
The whole foreign legion in the IPL gets less money than what just the Australian team gets paid.

BBL is a huge drain of money, the IPL is a big source of money for the BCI, why does Australia need the BBL when it makes massive amounts of money from international cricket.

IPL won’t kill Test cricket but international contests fading into background on global landscape

The IPL is transparent with how much money they get. The BCI takes a lot of money from the IPL and doesn’t put in a cent. The owners will not be unhappy because salaries seem to barely be 20% of the broadcast revenue let alone the combined revenue. Whats not transparent is how much money the Indian team is earning the BCI and where is that money is going.
The money in international cricket is bigger than the IPL, Australia gets 3-400 million a year from international cricket , and England , India would get more. Other nations get next to nothing.

What pathway, anyone who watched Macarthur matches, wouldnt hire him.
The only work he will get in Croatia is he wants to milk goats and sheep.

The Matildas need a coach, not a spin doctor

Thats not what happened. Aloisi had already tied up Oar and Holman into the marquee spots, though Oar was sold at the end of the year. His agent went public with Roars extension offer early in McLarens second season. Thats just setting the ground work for a move somewhere else. If you think a young striker who starts scoring 20 goals a season in the A-league is going to hang around your deluded.
McLaren though he was hot stufff but he went to Europe and failed. Yaggart was even worse in Europe.
Rowles spent three season at CCM where they conceeded heaps of goals, before they actually tightened their defence.

What is the whole programme in Australia?
Stajcic was the start of the problem, Sermanni was hardly a great coach but he was the one that brought in the new blood. If he hadn’t brought in players like Kerr into the fold early, they could have just fallen by the wayside. How many of the current players were brought into the teams as teens under Sermanni.

In the video all you hear is appealing I dont hear Steve Smith saying anything.
if you think of it logically where Khawaja was he would have the bowler closest, other fielders appealing as well.
Maybe Steve Smith mistook a fielder screaming something for yes from Khawaja.

Smith’s petulant run-out tantrum tarnishes the hard work he’s done to repair public image

A lot of the best value players would be players in their 20’s who have moved up to a higher level and struggled, also some play only as subs. If Berisha is signed to a Bundesliga team early on and he has a good season in Denmark are signs he will be a success in the A-league. The secret is to watch the players before you buy them. I can remember watching Kennedy Bundesliga team and they weren’t getting the ball over the half way line. When Kennedy went to Japan he played in some dominant teams that has no issues getting the ball to the other end. If you get a good player in their mid 20’s then you have at least 5 years out of them.
Signing players in their 30’s is the big risk especially ones who show a pattern of decline, you dont know how many seasons they will go even if they succeed the first season.

Maclaren got his big move to Europe after Roar, why would he have stayed in Australia, again reinventing history.
Aloisi spent huge for Roar Avram Papadopoulos, Maccarone, Ben Khaffala from Victory.
Imagine how much roar money was spent on those three almost 120 years of valuable experience.

Serie D I haven’t seen a dirt pitch on the highlights I have looked at though dont have a clue where the teams are. Semi Amateur like the NPL here. Is this the northerners contempt for the south that Sicily would have dirt pitches and be amateur.

What Australian takeover of Calcio Catania could mean for the A-League

To me the system in Australia is not about looking at the players ability, it wondering why certain players are there. One example we know why was Tom Slater, and Arnie after he was let go by the Mariners, managed to sneak him into Sydney FC at youth level but who knows on what contract. The amount of this thing going on is off the charts these days.
All it takes for me to spot someone good is about 10 min in one game.
The training they do at A-league clubs isnt good enough to develop and polish off players.
They are obsessed with the trainers and doing all the funny walks, and then the short sprints too often and they do the sprints one at a time. Then they are too lazy doing the skill exercises.
If you want to head the ball find a brick wall and practice heading against for hours see how many you can do in a row.

Serie D is 9 regional leagues. Serie C is now 3 regional league from 2 levels C1 and C2 with north and south regional leagues. There is a big difference between the 2. Players from C1 in the old days have performed well in the A-league. Though standards have slipped in Italy Margiotta was in Serie B just before he came though he didnt score many neither did he at Victory. There is no way they would have had Margiotta in Serie B in the past.
