I’m far from convinced, but there are little glimmers of hope. Still worried about a few areas and the halves are concerning. Very proud of what Burton is doing considering he is, in my view, better elsewhere. Was on the game tonight but emergency call up to the rugby has me elsewhere. I’ve tipped Knights but should be a tight one.

Limited top-line NRL coaches: Where are the pathways to develop Bennett, Bellamy and Cleary's replacements?

Not sure what the problem there is mate. I’d stand by both comments in their own contexts. The earlier comment in reference to culture actually uses the phrase ‘thus far’ and whilst there is indeed chasms of improvement to be made to be inside the eight and threatening for a title, for the first time, we have seen the evidence of something positive brewing. As I said.

A long way to go, but if Canterbury do indeed steam ahead over the next couple of seasons, May will 2024 will almost certainly be seen as the turning point in their journey. I feel my comments actually reflect that nexus and in reality, it could still go either way.

PS, I identify as Stuart thanks.

Oh goodness! We’d be silly to think this stuff doesn’t go on far more than we know, but this is not what we need on the eve of a super weekend of football.

You had me at 243!!!! 😂 😂 😂 😂

Get rid of the A-League pretenders: We want to see the Mariners bombard the Phoenix bus, the perfect grand final in waiting

Crowd?

Yep, more like a 4-3 to the locals. Have seen so many wild nights at Coopers. I’m not sure any team has given more to the A-League than Adelaide in terms of drama.

Hee hee, love it. You forgot to mention the beautiful art of the choreographed shirt tug and the stray elbow that sends a guy into next week!

Fair enough, it has been a blast to see the rise of the Phoenix. The older I get, the more I search for the beauty in the game and not the competition alone. Heck, I’m hoping to Roar are back in contention next season!

Banger!

How about every card, if confirmed by VAR, is a send-off and the player can be replaced? With a maximum of five subs including those due to yellow.

Well said, two hands fighting with each other at times.

Thanks mate. The supporters ‘happy’ with this?

A-League's 'good guys' winning the comp would be the best thing that could possibly happen - and nearly everyone's behind them

You deserve a medal every time you travel from Lumeah to Allianz!

Serious question. Roar’s home ground intentions for next season? Status quo?

I am not a CM member and don’t actually support a team at all. I once supported Sydney but was asked to leave via death threats, the first team I really liked was Brisbane Roar and now I enjoy the Mariners’ story. Adelaide have always played great football and I enjoy seeing the growth in Macarthur and Western. As for the McWanderers, well that is another story.

With this breaking Network 10 news, should the A-Leagues approach YouTube as an official partner? Seems like where we might end up. 😔

Yep, a different beast, but just think of the beauty of a Mariners v Phoenix GF with Sydney and Victory wallowing! And next year, Auckland v Perth Glory. This is the A-League I want!

WesDay, are you calling for A-League Origin in 2025?
