Just a well run club at the end of the day. Always have been always will be, the thought of living in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs would attract the attention of many talented footballers.

Sydney Roosters are the NRL benchmark, but why?

100% Daniel, nothing better than so
called sports banter and picking out your favourite teams faults, as a good fan does.

A fan's dilemma: What's wrong with being a couch coach?

Le Fondre is going through a rough patch in form of late, hasn’t looked as dynamic and clinical as he did earlier in the season. Siem is injury prone as he as been through out his career. I think Sydney will bounce back after their 2-0 defeat to city. Brisbane have been ordinary this season as they have been for the last couple of years, despite that Jamie Young is outstanding in goals

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

100% agree AJ, don’t know why people are getting so hyped over the thought of Pangai Jnr in a blues jumper, one good game against the cowboys and he is suddenly on the radar. NRL is a tough competition, players constantly get injured too. Origin talk should be saved until at least rounds 7-8

It’s Round 3 - lay off the State of Origin talk!

Would put Maloney over Walker. Saved the game for the panthers and rallied his troops when they needed it the most, Walker played some good kicks in behind though. Jahrome Hughes should also get a mention. Solid at the back and saved two certain tries against Canberra.

NRL team of the week: Round 2

Wingers have certainly come a long way in the modern game. Corey Oates is another example of a winger acting like a second front rower. The Storm system is expceptional, Bellamy always gets 100% out of his players, Jahrome Hughes is certainly villing the void left by Slater (I know it’s only round 2) but he looks right at home.

Storm and Broncos win on the back of the NRL’s greatest showmen: Suliasi Vunivalu and Tevita Pangai

Sydney are still 2nd on the table. I think they’ll find it tough to match Perth Glory, as will most other clubs. Siem has always been injury prone through out his career and Raza is still settling in. Filling in Arnold’s shoes will always be a tough gig, Sydney should at least keep him for another season.

Should Sydney FC sack Steve Corica?

Good point, although it seems Dortmund have the upper hand at distributing talent. Bayern poch a lot of Dortmund talent. Look at Lewandoski as an example, the best striker in the world in my opinion. Germany also lost 3-0 to The Netherlands in the nations league. Probably just a rough patch like most nations go through.

Is German football in a state of decline?

Del Peiro had similar traits in his stint at Sydney Fc too. Would always take a dive and given his legendary status, most referees would obliage.

Why opinions in football are rarely universal
