All people are ignorant. If that is a closed statement then it implies you too are ignorant.

The A-League needs to be completely slashed

It’s hard to beat Suncorp with the fine establishments all down Caxton St. Beers from expensive overseas brands to local craft beers and all types of spirits to whet the palate!

An alcoholic A-League analysis

They could probably play their youth for the remaining A League games and still finish top.
They don’t need to play any of their ACL players in any game that comes before or after any away ACL games.

Sydney FC can win the AFC Champions League

why don’t we raise a countering petition asking for more football stadia for Soccer? If you kick it off Mike we should get more signatures than they get!

Think no one wants new stadia? Try asking football fans

My mind boggles that people will comment on a article without actually reading it first. It does seem indicative of todays society however.

The Socceroos are going to get 'smashed' in Russia

Still struggling to see why the first goal was an own goal as the ball was going towards the goal. I thought own goals were only awarded if the ball was not going in and was diverted in? The goalkeepers position shouldn’t have any impact should it?

Jedi should have had a hat-trick!

Jedinak leads Socceroos to Russia

2-1 our way, more gray hairs for me and lots of jubilation!

Overload the key to Socceroos' World Cup qualification

Excellent comment jb, you have hit the proverbial nail on the proverbial head!

Ange plays those he trusts to carry out his vision so that is why he sometimes picks players most disagree with and not players most scream for. Its about the team and how it works together rather than individuals.

Overload the key to Socceroos' World Cup qualification

We don’t have to score 3, we just have to win.

Brave Roos earn the right to be confident of qualification

You really have no idea do you?

Brave Roos earn the right to be confident of qualification

You mean like we did against Syria? A better team?

The Socceroos are halfway to Russia

Probably as he says “they” not “we”. Obviously not a socceroos fan.

Are the Socceroos mentally strong enough to win this playoff?

He did say, and I ad lib here, I will leave when our world cup is over. That says enough doesn’t it?

Are the Socceroos mentally strong enough to win this playoff?

Not sure about that. Mooy is dominating in the EPL, Ryan is playing well. Leckie and Kruse are both scoring as is Juric. Timmy has been our best but I don’t think he is now.

I am getting sick and tired of all the drama about Anges future and the beat up by the media. All this came from an article that did not state the source, but “someone close to Ange” or whatever it was. He is well within his rights to ignore the massive media circus about this.

There is more focus is this non-story than there is on the game which is, in my opinion, pathetic. The whole football community should be behind him and the team with a focused, excited, supporting attitude but instead, like true modern journalism, we are all talking about the sensationalist, non supported rumour.

That’s because it is an EVENT. the first test of the season, the Barmy Army etc with lots of banter and laughter. I would always go to the first day of the first test at the Gabba because it was a lot of fun.

The A-League is too good to be this bad

Its not that long……

The A-League is too good to be this bad

The bigger question is, who actually watch consistently FTA channels at all with Netflix, Foxtel, Nine GO, ABC View etc?

I like your last comment as none of your tips match mine!

The Roar’s A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 1

I think the league as a whole is getting stronger and this year should be very exciting with most teams having recruited well. It will be good to see Newcastle fighting near the top again.

Jets zero in on A-League finals after flush preseason

I can think of worse candidates.

Graham Arnold open to idea of coaching Socceroos

Pffft…flog the Roar? Tell him he’s dreaming! 🙂 May the best team with Aloisi as a coach win!

New A-League season launching with a whimper, not a bang

Not sure Ange will go back to a back 4 now that the players are used to a back 3 but who knows. I don’t care as long as we get to the next stage.

It's now or never for the shaky Socceroos

Milligan could play at the back, allowing Luongo to play in front of him in the DM position. Degenek SW, Wright left and Milligan right.
