As stated by others we are looking a little light in attack, having said that Poppa has had success with fairly average strike forces in the past so heres hoping. We’ll need the likes of Ferriera to chip in with goals which he’s very capable of if he stays fit.

Can Popovic bring glory back to Perth?

I think making the FFA Cup final two years running and not even having a sniff of hosting one of the finals has many Glory fans not caring about the FFA Cup to be honest.

The wonder of super-Tuesday in the FFA Cup

Great signing, Honda is up there with the greats of Japanese football and it’s a pleasure having him in our league.

CONFIRMED: Melbourne Victory land Keisuke Honda in massive A-League marquee signing

A fair few broken playstation controllers in my case.

What has 25 years of FIFA given us?

ol Marty boy is known to post links to trouble at a 3rd division game in Brazil so it’s hardly surprising he’s not on top of problems in his own backyard.

Even as an innocent bystander, football is implicated

Deserved, absolutely brilliant technique.

WATCH: Benjamin Pavard's goal of the World Cup

If Graham Arnold was still at Sydney this might be considered a good move, instead he’ll be working under someone in a vital stage in his career whos never been a 1st team coach before….i do wonder who is guiding these young guys sometimes.

Daniel De Silva moves to Sydney FC on loan

I’m not sure the label matters quite frankly…and most of these violent clashes have involved far more than “2 blokes”.

Even as an innocent bystander, football is implicated

Yeah well violence at aussie rules games isn’t just a Geelong problem, it’s Australia wide and at all levels, about time it’s gotten the media attention it’s getting now.

Even as an innocent bystander, football is implicated

I believe our deputy prime minister warned Australian fans to think not once, not twice but three times about attending the World Cup in Russia….it seems he needs to give the same advice to people attending an aussie rules match.

Even as an innocent bystander, football is implicated

No

Went to the game last night, nice enough stadium but watching football at NIB with a vastly smaller crowd is a better experience. Football fans were once again treated like second class citizens by the security by telling fans in the active area ( an active area which was okay’d weeks in advance) to stop playing the drum they had brought in and to sit down. Pathetic but hardly surprising.

Should Perth Glory host an A-League game at Optus Stadium?

Tom Rogic and Trent Sainsbury are the two best players to grace the pitch in Gosford.

We can't demand more A-League marketing then complain when we get it

I believe this is the video he’s passing around to clubs, impressive.

Usain in the membrane: Why Bolt in the A-League makes no sense

Watched highlights of Bolt in a charity match recently at Old Trafford and he’s average. Didn’t even look particularly fast against other non or retired footballers, Freddie Flintoff was getting a across stopping him getting into the box ffs.

It's so crazy it just might work: Why Usain Bolt to the A-League might be worth it

I’m probably speaking in terms more of intent, teams set up to stop Spain playing so yes they didn’t blow teams away 4-0 every match.

Why France's win has left me unsatisfied

Weird old team and just seemed to do what they had to, any time they were challenged they rose to it and were only behind in the tournament for 9 mins. It is pretty rare World Cup winners play exciting attacking football, Spain probably really the only one in recent memory.

Why France's win has left me unsatisfied

Australian legend, so many unforgettable moments. Thanks Tim and give that man a statue.

Tim Cahill retires from international football

I can see the Mariners mug of an owner signig him up for a quick buck.

Usain Bolt on the verge of joining the A-League - no, seriously!

I’m cheering for Croatia, a new world champion would be fantastic.

Croatia and France to meet under the majesty of the final

You’d think Roma and Lazio would be abit more successful then.

England are disappointed, but this time it's a different kind of disappointment

I preferred Brazil to tbh, thought it was far more of an attacking World Cup with more spectacular goals. Seems this one was the World Cup of penalties and set pieces!

Would an amazing World Cup final make Russia the greatest tournament of all?

Far more balanced fixture list for us which is a plus, last season was ridiculous 3 home games in the first 10 rounds or something like that.

2018-19 A-League draw released, now with added international breaks

Adam Taggart is the best striker in this country, apart from his obvious talents you don’t realize how first class his movement is until you watch him from the stands.. fingers crossed he can keep fit which seems a massive issue for him. Hopefully the hype on the Folami kid at Ipswich has some merit, getting first team action at 19 in the Championship is a good sign.

Healthy competition: How Russia has rewarded the resilience of the underdog

Good game of football between two classy sides. Belgium started the brighter for sure but France always looked dangerous on the counter, the game probably deserved more than a set piece to decide it. Over to you England and Croatia.

France narrow 1-0 winners over Belgium, securing final berth

Scotland never gets their hopes up

It might be coming home
