and thanks for the feedback too mate, as just a young and relatively new writer I try to work out what will get people to read my articles so thankyou for your point on titles to attract readers

What it looks like when the VAR works for football

Thanks for the reply mate, First of all sorry for making this reply long, second I get your point mate, and I will just say my original title was change a lot as were parts of this article, obviously it isn’t Adelaide Reds its Adelaide United,
My point wasn’t about whether it was or wasn’t a pen, it was about how it played out, as you said it looked like a dive I probably beg to differ based off the fact that Im a huge reds supporter however looking at replays Im not surprised when people said it looked soft
Obviously its split a fair bit on whether it was a pen or not, my article was about how Elder chose to check at the next stoppage to check his decision because his first thought was penalty based off his reaction I saw at the game, if he gave a penalty and VAR said it wasn’t then Wanderers wouldn’t have had that chance, i was impressed about how he (the ref) managed the situation considering how it was a 50/50 challenge and how I think of all the possible alternatives that could of happened,

What it looks like when the VAR works for football

I think the reason why warriors didn’t get picked is that I heard that North Geelong Warriors which I believe is an State League 2 side (please correct me if Im wrong) had a problem with it and the fact that the West Melbourne team will play their first seasons in geelong. Not 100% sure but I read that somewhere on the internet.

Geelong Advertiser had this stated (I can’t access full article due to needing to pay a subscription to access it)
“NORTH Geelong Warriors legend Josip Skoko has defended his club’s decision to protect its nickname from incoming A-League franchise Western Melbourne.The NPL2 club filed a trademark application with IP Australia on Monday, four days after Western Melbourne…”

Western United take first steps towards becoming a real club, but questions remain

yeah i do agree with you, but I’m saying i think it could make it more entertaining/watchable some recently retired legends did play,

AFLX is a misguided waste of resources

also last night on the draft I heard something about Nick Riewoldt wanting to be picked by cousin Jack but couldn’t, whether that was true or was a joke I think it could be better and possibly a bit entertaining and watchable if it did have some past legends of the game, such as Riewoldt and others like Stevie J, Sam Mitchell, Dane Swan, Pavlich,

AFLX is a misguided waste of resources

while I didn’t mind AFL X last year, didn’t love it or hate it, I do think it will be good to watch some of the best talent play together on the same teams. Though for me and I am sure for many others I’d rather watch a state of origin match, either a small series or Victoria v Dream Team like in 2008. Though on a good note for the ‘series’ apparently depending on what place the teams come, they win a prize money which goes to their chosen charity.

Ah, gotcha mate after I questioned what u meant saw Anons comment below and saw the logo and kinda guessed
Tho did thought for a minute that I might of written something ona different page, all good

Crows to give Walker a co-captain in 2019

sorry a bit confused, how did I contradict my first comment?

Crows to give Walker a co-captain in 2019

without Mitchell unfortunately I don’t see them doing as well, but they might slip into the 8 if they play well, feel sorry for Mitchell, a great player who we will miss watching next year, and also the tough decision of who to make by dream team captain 🙂

Hawthorn 2019 season preview, best 22 and predicted finish

one of the greatest players mens or womens this country has produced, NWSL goal record and W-League goal record, an inspiration to all young players

Sam Kerr becomes the W-League's all-time top-scorer

Janjetovic should have just left it, he can do some good saves but he seems to have some brain fades every now and again, Sydney handball is one, and a couple of seasons the dropped catch which went in the goals after a Brett Holman shot and gave the Roar the game

Bonkers finish to Roar vs Wanderers might be the most A-League moment ever

I’m not that sure on whether he will but in 9 VFL matches he did average 32 hit outs which is good. Still a young player, they have lost Roughead, they also have Boyd but it depends on where they play him, his best game for the club was by far the grand final where he played in forward he could play, i reckon it could come between Boyd and English

AFL 2019 team-by-team preview: Part three

or could change it to a 4-4-2 featuring Maclaren (or other striker) up top with mabil/leckie/ikonimidis, but Arnold should only change formation if he believes it will help the squad and if the squad is comfortable, when we had Ange I never liked how he changed our successful 4-3-3 in the Asian cup to a 3-4-3 during qualifying

Who should replace Tom Rogic for the Socceroos Asian Cup quarter-final?

in my view they could move ikonimidis in the midfield and move leckie on wing, ikonimidis and mabil have played well and don’t deserve to be dropped yet after his performance Leckie deserves to be brought in, if its not ikonimidis moved into the midfield i will feel sorry for which ever winger does get dropped

Who should replace Tom Rogic for the Socceroos Asian Cup quarter-final?

Smart move from the club, Tex has had to lead the club in some horrible times for the past couple of seasons and has done a great job, bringing in Sloane is not only bringing in another good and strong leader but someone to take a bit of the pressure off Tex,

Crows to give Walker a co-captain in 2019

I think it’s good enough to make the 8 when all the players are on their game, Robbie Gray, although getting older, he is able to change a game just like that, me personally I think they have the potential to possibly make the 8 like just slip in, but in my personal opinion they won’t, when I write expectation for 2019, this is what I believe the general expectation from fans, coaches and media expect from each team

I agree, if we aren’t at our best we could go out straight away v Uzbekistan

Mission Impossible: Can Arnie take us all the way in the UAE?

Also Mr Football, just curious on where you find out the ratings is there a website or something because im interested to know other games,
Id also wish I could find out how the ratings would go if it was on a FTA channel, it is on 10 Bold each week but unlike the footy or bbl which is always on the main network channel like 7 or 10, the A-League is always dished off onto a the networks secondary channel like 10 Bold (previously ONE) or SBS 2 when SBS had the rights

yes generally the 7-8K fans that rock up to Hindmarsh each week are passionate supporters and will follow it weekly, the rest of the fans who don’t rock up only rock up when there is success or a final unfortunately, when Hindmarsh is full it is a brilliant stadium to be and one of the reasons why I love the reds and go to their matches regularly

The A-League ten-year challenge: 2019-2029 edition

fair enough, he has had success with the matildas thats why I was wondering whether u as a fan would consider him

Matildas coach Alen Stajcic sacked, five months before World Cup

when the 36ers are at their best they are very good, however as a sixers fan i notice in games that they have minutes where they concede 10 points in a row, I believe it was the Brisbane game a few weeks ago and we were up by 10 and we let them score 21 odd points and we barely scored and then they had the 10 point lead and the game, if they can stop these mini fade outs in games I hope we can win the majority of games left and sneak into top 4 before brisbane do

Seven doesn't go into four in the NBL's run home

we could go all the way but it would take our very best to do it, Uzbekistan round of 16, we are probably the favourites they are beatable but we have to watch out otherwise it could end like the Jordan game, if we win that we play the winner of UAE v Kyrgyzstan, two teams we could beat but have provided trouble against us in the past, if we make the semis, it will be most likely South Korea and it would take our very best to beat them, not impossible but with an inform Son Heung-Min, it will be very hard. not impossible but will take our very best

Mission Impossible: Can Arnie take us all the way in the UAE?

would love for half of these to come true, however, with the Aleague/FFA taking so long to introduce 12 teams I don’t think pro/rel will be happening anytime soon unfortunately, would be good to see Red Bull take ownership of a club and wouldn’t surprise me if they did, and it is likely that an NPL team will win the FFA cup, with one NPL team guaranteed to make it to the semis no matter what, it won’t be too long before they become stronger and win the whole thing

The A-League ten-year challenge: 2019-2029 edition

although I would love a second adelaide team and make an Adelaide rivalry here in SA, currently I don’t think the sport has the popularity in SA to hold two A-League teams, at least not until pro/rel starts (if it ever starts)

The A-League ten-year challenge: 2019-2029 edition

Waz, i saw you mention Brisbane will be looking for a new W-League coach and ur referencing Stajcic im guessing, considering his good record with the national team, would u want him as the Head A-League coach at the Roar?
Oh and as ur a roar fan im just interested is there someone in particular u guys want as your new coach?
