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.

Typical disingenuous journalists antagonising coaches already under pressure.

… Then acting like the victim once Demetriou walks away.

'That's it?': Angry Demetriou storms out of 27-second trainwreck press conference as Souths sharpen axe

As a perpetrator, Mak is a huge scalp. By removing a marquee player, it alters the game. Cancar knew this, & it’ll be the biggest “highlight” of his career.

Nice. It’s a challenge, getting the right stadium. EG: Accor Stadium (in Sydney) is nice, but I’d prefer a smaller version with a roof. Say, 60k covered in the rain, as opposed to 80k freezing fans stuck in the elements.

He’s pretty good, young Torres. Certainly not of Marco Túlio‘a standard, but still a champion. Occasionally a ball hog too, I’ll admit, but that’s ok. He’s got skills.

I still rate Gomes. Just needs better service. Lolley, however, is still my favourite at FC. Talay is a breath of fresh air. He’ll probably get picked-up be a SPL club soon.

How did you rate the stadium, Grem? Being from NSW, I’ve never been before.

Borello’s an interesting character. An excellent player in my books, but he’s occasionally a bit complacent since becoming a Socceroo.

I have zero faith in Milligan – too brash. Although, he’s a decent commentator. I’m bias as he left the Bulls at the drop of a hat.

An impressive Melbourne derby, for sure. But, I have a feeling Sydney will really turn on the charm this weekend. 25k+ I would imagine.

Cancar reminded me of Marcel Marceau, the French mime artist.

Western United's football-specific facility is a milestone worth celebrating

Bring back Paul Langmack. 😁

Demetriou facing sack after Souths' disastrous start with Bennett, Bellamy, Burgess possible replacement options

Very much so. Adelaide have some serious strike power.

An underrated player (Apostolos). I’m sure Victory have their eyes on him.

Goal to Stamatelopoulos.
3-1.
Jets with momentum.
Still concerned with Cancar’s acting skills. An NPL player at best.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Sydney now with more combined shots.
The extra man has given Newcastle a false sense of security.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

A gentle breeze could blow Cancar over. Never a red. That card just dented the integrity of the match.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Gomes a quality player. Goal.
Beautiful play by FC, & with only 10 men.
A big confidence booster for Sydney.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Agreed. A bit of milking on show today.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Red card for Mak.
It’s gone from bad to worse for FC.
Very uncharacteristic.
Halftime can’t come soon enough.
WSW will be watching this match closely.

What is this Newcastle sorcery?
Goal to Piscopo.
Jets with a combined 8 shots in half an hour.
FC need to regroup & reenergise.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Snatch-and-grab by the Jets.
Sydney with a wealth of possession.
But the Jets have taken more shots.
Newcastle have been rewarded.
Goal to Taylor.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Newcastle playing for pride at 3pm.
Sydney looking dangerous recently.
Maybe the Jets will try a quick snatch-and-grab in the first 15 minutes, then park the bus?

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Victory supporters tend to tread a very fine line.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Plus Adelaide have two recent wins under their belt. Nice form, but maybe not enough momentum.

The Roar's A-League Men tips and predictions: Round 23

Brisbane & City are ready to pounce.

This will make the WSW & FC derby huge.

It’s the Wanderers season on the line.
