In the Jets defence Sam in the last 2 weeks they have played in 43 degree heat and then a cyclone. Also a small matter of running near last 4 seasons out of the last 5. For a city of 400k they get great crowds

Think the A-League has poor crowds? Think again

Agree Chris. He’s actually become a decent player. Scored a great header a couple of weeks ago

Perth Glory and Bruno Fornaroli are back, but Melbourne Victory are goooooone

George Blackwood up front for the national team? I hope I don’t live to see those dark days

Agree LH. Jets always open top tiers in the rain, but I remain amazed that only about 30% of people in the stands get rain protection

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

Not everyone follows AFL or NRL Adam. The only reason people wouldn’t turn up in winter would be if there was a clash with grassroots football

Some fair points Larry. If only there were more intelligent posts from fans of other sports here

But it’s the coach’s job to set them up. They are ridiculously open when they lose possession, meaning they are very easy to score against. All down to the coach, his training , tactics and his recruitment.

He may be lucky to have a job at seasons end

I braced monsoons to watch the Jets beat CCM in a very entertaining game. Btw, how the heck is Stajcic escaping criticism? They are woeful defensively and poor structurally, see the massive space in midfield in their defensive transition as an example. Glory v Nix was a great game and I really enjoyed the Roar’s come from behind win.

I have no idea of tv ratings and they aren’t remotely representative of numbers watching. Nor do I care. I had fun. I do know that 4k at the Jets in that weather shows there is a hard core of hard core support, but no doubt we’ll get comments on averages etc.

We really need covered stands, not the Australian version where they cover 1/3 of the back of the stand. Last week 43 degrees, this week 3 days of torrential rain. Are we surprised that at least 12k stayed away?

Waiting for parole gives one plenty of time

The delicious irony AR! 🙂

Where to next for football in Australia?

Such an understated point LH.

Where to next for football in Australia?

Agree. MV have been woeful. Even their faithful fans are being tested

Where to next for football in Australia?

Yep, a 34 plus game season

Where to next for football in Australia?

Agree Waz

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 18

Did someone speak? I’m sure a man of principle like nemesis wouldn’t go back on his word and discuss a competition he has repeatedly said he has turned his back on?

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

I just like to call out those who say one thing and do another. Especially when they annoint themselves the arbiter of who is a True Believer

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

You choose not to follow the A-league, but then are on discussion forums about the league constantly.

You are following it, despite your weak claims

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

What do you think about the purity of MV being in the “Champions Leagye” despite not being champions? Or of a compromised draw because China is quarantined? It’s a farce, one you’ll watch based on your own bizarre principles …

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

Good response Mike.

Here he is, the bitter NSL fan, wishing for the good old days of 2k crowds, comprised of people from one ethnic group.

People are not that stupid

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

Such a strong stand. I thought you weren’t commenting on this monstrosity of a league either.

A couple of good MV wins and you’ll be back.

Btw, the ACL is severely compromised due to Chinese teams inability to travel etc. Actually, MV are in it and they aren’t even Champions!!!!!!!! What sort of a league is that?? 🙂 BOYCOTT

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

Why not? You say it’s too late, the league is gone. I say it’s in vastly stronger ground than the NSL ever was, even at it’s best.

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

The Block is going strong too. (I think)

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

I’d think that’d be close to the mark
