Interested in the popularity and growth of football in Australia, especially the A-League. Also passionate about the history of the former National Soccer League. I am a supporter of the Australia Cup, and believe a National Second Division is achievable.

Grem, I’m on the Sydney BOM radar, & the rain seems to have vanished. How’s the serenity?

Is the weather really that bad around Campbelltown? It seems the Bulls are delayed every week by thunderstorms.

Agreed. The exposure is fantastic, & it’s cross-promotional, touching various sporting codes, but financially it’s running at a huge loss.

Quite simply, a charity needs to be charitable.

There’s a real lack of transparency too, especially with the government subsidies.

The $2.2 million on “administration” was staggering.

“This season, the Mariners and the McGrath Foundation are teaming up for the first time for for the Pink Round…” – A-Leagues

A worthy cause, BUT, the McGrath Foundation involvement is questionable.

“Last year, it spent about $8.8 million on foundation-funded breast care nurses, but more than $9.1 million on fundraising and marketing, and a further $2.2 million on administration.” – The New Daily, Jan 04, 2024.

Yup, that was the NRL’s Wests Tigers who included American troops on their ANZAC jersey.

Can I ad, $160 for a rugby league shirt is a bit steep, especially for the “blue collar” code.

Interesting. That would be the third EPL connection. 1) Melbourne City, 2) Auckland & 3) Canberra.

There’s a glitch in the A-League’s matrix. That or the APL has perfected time travel.

Bring on the WSW & FC derby. All the best to George.

I was thinking a very carefree, joyous Danny Townsend. Similar spectacles.

Classic A-Leagues for you. Probably will blame the Y2K bug.

Yikes. April Fools day? Or a February 29th joke?

Loving the festive guy in the photo. Lower-right, pink T-shirt, shirtless, & enjoying a typical Saturday night at Wanderland. 😊

All great players, but my favourite is Nestory Irankunda. I wish him the best.

Fear not Adelaide fans, the next Nestory Irankunda might be right around the corner

There will be some tired legs this A-League weekend.

Well done, Mariners.

Prestige, but with a cost: Can A-League teams afford to play in Asian competitions?

My judgment is still cloudy after Victory miraculously clawed a last-minute win against Western United, last Tuesday.

My only prediction is this competition is unpredictable.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 18

A great article, thank you. Geographically, Australia isn’t the centre of Asian football, meaning travel costs are particularly steep for our Down Under representatives.

On a domestic scale, I empathises with Glory, as they’re isolated in Perth.

I dare Kanye to walk into a bank, dressed like that.

What the UCL!? Unlikely hero overcomes big misses, in front of disguised Kanye West and his Aussie missus

Can I boldly predict Perth, under coach Staj, will play final’s football? I shall.

Adam Taggart will win the A-League Golden Boot - and he should be leading the Socceroo front line

Agreed, it’s a feel-good story football needs.

It's Macarthur & the Mariners in an all A-League AFC Cup ASEAN Final - who takes the title (and the cash)?

For the A-League’s smaller clubs, this will be a great test, & I’m really hoping for a 3K+ crowd.

The Bulls are the dark horse of the ACL. They could easily pull off an upset against the Mariners.

As much as we love you, Ange, let’s give credit to the Wolves. Only 28% possession, & with superior shots on target (7 to 4).

Spurs with wasted opportunities.

Rudan’s got the support of WSW chairman, Paul Lederer, who has around $1.5 billion behind him.

Rudan, right or wrong, has no fear. The APL don’t scare him, in fact, they need the Wanderers, very much.

Will the ban be overturned? Stay tuned.

Fantastic news for Western Australian football. Happy days for Staj & the team.

'Return to the Glory days': A-League strugglers Perth's new ownership confirmed

Talking about nursing an injured body, Jason Cumming’s ailment was questioned by a cheeky Marcelo last year.

From KeepUp >>>

“How is your injury, man?” WSW’s Marcelo asks Cummings as the two teams file down the tunnel towards the change rooms.

A mildly confused Cummings takes a moment to catch on to the intention behind Marcelo’s provocative question.

“I’ll be waiting for you on the pitch,” coos Marcelo, licking his lips, the malice dawning on the Mariners striker.
