Yes, the A-League is a tight league and you have to be winning games, but in Babble’s defence, lady year he inherited the scraps. This year he has started to build something. He had a considerable number of new players and they are yet to gel. But don’t count them and Babble out yet. As a Jets supporter everyone had Jets and Nix fighting for the wooden spoon. Our boys are coming good and do are Nix.
It annoys the heck out of me when pundits make these calls. Have they never coached? What don’t they understand about the development of a relationship and bond between players and a coach? Do they think both of the aforementioned parties don’t care or don’t want to win? They are working their butts off to get their, I have no doubt.
And factor in those incompetent attention seeking clowns called referees. Without corruption being considered I don’t think there’s a league on the world that had the potential to be influenced by refs like ours has.
Have faith support your team and support the league

Markus Babbel: Dead man walking

Agree he’s not the fully polished product yet but give him time

Ange Postecoglou's success won't open doors, but it should inspire change

Spot on Punter. There’s probably some nuances, but bottom line is that it’s still football. I think Rudan has the potential to be a National gaffer to be honest

Coaches are a bit like leaders, they’re not made they’re born. They’ve either got it or they haven’t, and Mark Rudan is a prime example.

And we have some that have the potential to all the way. I even heard somewhere the other day that Timmy Cahill has almost or just finished his UEAF ticket and has been offered some Assistant time at Everton. It will be interesting to see how he pans out.

Thanks for your service, David Gallop, but let's hope James Johnson is something completely different

Kanga, mate we all want he game to grow and prosper. guess we’re just a little impatient because we’ve waited so long.
All good things come to those who wait. Old mate stepping into the job seems to be as good as you’re going to get if you go by his resume.

Sorry to repeat myself, but if you get on the net and look at replays of the old days in English football, have look at the grounds when Paul Mariner was at Ipswich Town and Trevor Brooking was at West Ham, even when Frank Stapleton and Arnold Muhren were at United. Old Trafford was nothing like it is now. We have been serious about football for 14 years and look what we have achieved. It’s a bloody miracle, I didn’t think I would see it in my lifetime. I am in football heaven with the quality of the A-League, and the way the Socceroos are travelling. Think where we will be in another 10 or 20 years.

I don’t think that GCU was Gallop’s fault it was that slug Palmer. He had the cerebral horsepower of a gnat hence football confused him, he got bored frustrated and peeved that it wasn’t making him enough money to build his replica Titanic so he pulled the plug. Kind of ironic really, an association between Palmer and the Titanic

Here Here!, Well said that man. I know I harp on about it but the generational transition can come fast enough. The culture of Baby Boomers and Gen C’s where football I’d considered a foreign game that does belong, that it’s not a “man’s game” will die and football will prosper. For most of us I hope we will be in sporting nirvana. Johnny Warren will looking down and saying O told you so, with Les Murray right beside him.

Mate ever heard the term Eurosnob?

Postecoglou's J.League title makes him the greatest Aussie coach of all time

To put into perspective what And has achied,and the quality of his football knowledge, I had the good fortune of meeting a former professional footballer on Saturday night. Born in Brazil as a contracted Under 23 he was in the same team as Ronaldinho, but never played with him because Ronaldinho was in the first team. He played for Almeida in Portugal and finished hid career in Japan. He mentioned there’s a strong tie between Brazil and Japan because of migration in the 40’s.
What really struck me is that he said,”A lot of Brazilian kids just want to play. They don’t like the fitness and discipline training required to really get the there. But Japanese kids are the best of both worlds. Skills up the wazoo, but disciplined in a way that only the Japanese can understand.
For Ange to go in and carry out such a successful campaign in a country that is so cultured, disciplined, and passionate about their football speaks volumes about his knowledge his insight and his ability to apply it in a first class environment. The man took a year of not being paid a cent to spend time at Arsenal to learn, be humble in the face of greatness and to take what he leaned and adapt it to his own phosophy. To me that deserves immeasurable amounts of respect.

You can’t argue with those points Buddy

The Socceroos at the Copa America is a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Yeah I remember the late timeslot on Saturday night. As a kid I’d rack out early and set the alarm, I would watch it alone whilst the family slept

The Socceroos at the Copa America is a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Agree and does this mean our level of respect and the perception of Australian football in the world has changed,? I think it has considerably, so.to the naysayers out there, think again my friends.

The world is poorer for Les’ absence. I am sure he’s got front row seats at an game he chooses. And yep who doesn’t remember tha chocolate box

Nahhh not with Wembley especially when it comes to the Cup Final.

Gold absolute gold. You’d think that Central Coast stadium would be right up there, they don’t have a couple of massive sauce bottles at Nou Camp or Wembley!!!

This is what we need more of. There are parallels to Solskjaer blooming the United kids. What we expose our young fellas to today is what they tske6ad normal tomorrow, and they can then take another step forward. This is going to be freakin’ awesome.

In this case I want our pollies there to potentially get some decent trade deals in place to get some leverage against our “biggest trading partner’.
But what an opportunity for Australian football. Bring it on!!!

We need boutique stadiums. If you get the chance to go to the UK go to Craven Cottage. Wooden stands etc the way pommy football used to be it’s awesome.
Look at the Bris-Vegas game at Dolphin stadium. The place was rocking. Once Western get their boutique jobby built bring it on.

Gold so I’m not Robinson Crusoe

The death of active support will be the death of the A-League

Yep they need to harden up and learn what support means

The death of active support will be the death of the A-League

That’s exactly what I think we are trying to achieve but the media and the other codes can take great responsibility for painting a false picture that resonates with a large majority of Baby Boomers and Gen X’ers ie football doesn’t belong here it’s a foreign game. Take and hold faith in the generational transition.
