Schalke threw a team together for the last game. He played that meaningless match. Caps need to be earned by merit, by playing at a good level of performance for an extended period. Not one game.

I’m surprised you didn’t include the Robertson kid at Man City, based on a good reputation and a few EPL youth league games ….

The squad Arnold should take to South Korea

I was not expecting that!!

Mark Rudan unveiled as Western United coach

Shot that argument down beautifully nemesis

What is the state of play in football after another stagnant A-League season?

Scrapping the salary cap will be a game changer. I see no reason why the incoming body won’t throw it in the bin

What is the state of play in football after another stagnant A-League season?

Tend to agree Waz

What is the state of play in football after another stagnant A-League season?

Agree MM. Focus on strengths. Also look at what the game is doing well, rather than moaning incessantly about things it’s not

What is the state of play in football after another stagnant A-League season?

No, no and no.

Caps have to be earnt, not given away to anyone who hadn’t got one yet.
Timotheau is the standout. One game, an end of season kick about, and he deserves a cap? Had you even heard of him before last week?

A good read

What would each A-League club's 2018-19 season song be?

Agree. He should never coach above NPL level again. I don’t even find him likeable any more. Watching him snarl and moan on the sidelines with his mad brother…

What would each A-League club's 2018-19 season song be?

What’s in name? Sheffield Wednesday. Doesn’t get weirder than that.

“a bit of history”. You do realise that history takes time? When Everton and Liverpool went their separate ways in the early days they had no history, and I doubt anyone would have said that was a problem.

What do the clubs represent? Adelaide = Adelaide. Perth = Perth. Wellington = Wellington. Wsw = Western Sydney etc

What do Notts County represent in comparison to Forest?

Most team’s were made artificially. The difference is time has given them history.

Your other points are valid. If the standard isn’t good enough so be it. Most A-league fans watch because it is their local club, and the best the country has. That’s why people follow leagues all across the world

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

Yep. The team who wins the shootout defends desperately throughout extra time, making it a tedious affair

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

Our best players play in higher leagues

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

Manchester United are no more than a franchise now. Man City a behemoth supported by blood money.
PSG were only founded in 1970.

How many years do clubs need to exist, with a hard core dedicated following? 15 years? 30 years? 50 years?

Maybe you should watch mire than 30 minutes to get a sample size. Tune I to an EPL game at the wrong time and you can be bored brainless, wondering what the fuss is about

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

That’s my point. He knows how to play the system. Refs are consistently very very lenient with him. He typically will complain against every decision against him, making the refs less likely to book him. This allows him to accumulate more fouls than he should. He then commits a pure yellow tackle, and then pulls his head in.

Easy to stamp out. Book him when it’s merited which will then force him to change his game. He fouled Davidson out of the game and got away with it.

I await Mile calling me negative!!

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

I wasn’t suggesting Sydney were doing anything wrong AG, perhaps apart from the tactical fouling, which is the refs fault. Having watched their previous encounters this season it was evident that SFC had the organisational skills to counter Perth’s playmakers. And they did it again.

Agree on the error in starting Chianese. He needs space, and he was never going to get any until late in this game

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

Agree totally G

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

Excellent post AG. A thrilling but controversial final would have given us a much more positive article. Fine margins!

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

What a childish whine. Just like the GF it was tedious, predictable and went on far too long.

Poor Mike, no one explained why VAR didn’t overrule the offside goal. Perhaps it was because it wasn’t clear and obvious? The reason was obvious to me. I’d rather they explain over the PA why that odious little scrote Grant is allowed 3 yellow worthy fouls before he finally gets 1? Happens every game.

First past the post? We’ve had a finals series for an eternity. Finals crowds are evidence they’re embraced by fans, player reactions show they’re embraced by players.

Dooms day headline? Check

Who’s coming back next season? JB supplied some crowd figures recently that showed attendances were down by just a couple hundred per game. Factor in storms for the Sydney derby, 2 homeless Sydney teams, Roar having a shocker, WSW playing at mudgee , Nix playing in Sydney and it’s safe to assume crowds would have been up. By some way.

The moan about the medal winner is bizarre. Honda nearly won the Warren medal and he was anonymous for half a season. Awards are often given out to flashy players. I’m not sure whether Redmayne not winning it would stop anyone coming back next season.

The game was boring . It happens across the world, often in big games. Consequently we’ll be getting more of these stream of consciousness doomsday articles and comments. Alternately had it had been a 4-3 classic there’s have been “football will take over Australia” responses. Or, this why football GF are much better than other codes. No middle ground.

My prediction came true; Sydney would squeeze the life out of Perth. My second prediction also came true. Half an hour in to the final I said to a mate, wait for negative articles on the Roar if this continues.

The A-League is done, so will anyone come back next season?

You’re either a SFC fan or you hate them. No middle ground

This will be the biggest A-League grand final of all time

Please repost this every time someone sounds the death knell of the A-league JB.

If we factor in atrocious storms which took at least 20k off the Sydney derby, WSW losing 5k from a game at Mudgee, Roar having a shocking season, a homeless Sydney, who knows what we may have ended up with?

This will be the biggest A-League grand final of all time

I’m mocking the idea that believing in a being that is at best fictional, at worst cruel, gives you the right to say what you want, about anyone , with out consequence
