I’m showing random people on public transport. It is a little awkward at first but once people stop trembling with fear I appear to get some traction.

The proposed ABC free-to-air deal and the new A-League teaser are right on the money

Back in my box. 😂 😂

Think I meant to say Adelaide United’s Riley McGree. Thanks for picking it up. Not sure about the sports betting, something of a necessary evil perhaps.

Sadly, options do appear limited. Can’t have them playing at 10pm to suit us, nor too much earlier. Could we perhaps implement New Zealand A-League Daylight Savings Time and they could play at 7pm and Australia watches the match in the mid afternoon? Wouldn’t be too hard. 😁 😁

Had me a little confused #gosocceroos

A three-goal win, but Graham Arnold has some wrinkles to sort out for the Socceroos

That was something of a statement and just shows how teams do time their runs these day; planning for the big ones and coasting at different times during the season.

They were superb Eden. Managed Cook superbly in the first half.

Is the headline meant to read ‘tactical wrinkles’?

Oh no. This is not what anyone needs at this time of the year. Such a terrific player and potentially lost to the game for an extended period.

Not rare at all. I love the red and black. A few of the loons annoyed me early on but any true fan of the domestic league needs to admit that a strong Wanderers goes a long way towards creating a strong league. These days I follow the league and not a team…….there was an incident.

How valuable will Bankwest Stadium be to the Wanderers?

A great place to watch football and some of the most knowledgeable and respectful fans in the land.

This season I am determined to live up to the stereotype. I am resorting to violence and will be starting in Round 1…….wouldn’t they love that?

Never forget Peter Overton’s words……..”On a night of soccer violence”.

I think you are right. 18,000 plus seems assured.

I hear you brother. It is an amazing place and with Western United and Sydney FC in new homes in the coming years, the A-League has some really positives vibes moving forward.

I was also at that game AG and felt the same as you. I am glad you agree with my point about the level of responsibility on the shoulders on the RBB. If we all get this right, football is the clear winner.

If you need a place to stay let me know! The people of Adelaide treated us so well last season.

There is change in the air Buddy, something tells me the Sydney derby is about to get really interesting.

25,000 plus on opening night will make something of a statement.

League crowds have been excellent this year. Parramatta have one all bar one game at the venue. The less said about union the better. From what I understand the dimensions of the ground do not actually meet the requirements for an official match. 7’s will be played there but it seems unlikely representative matches will be permitted to intrude on the Wanderers’ new home.

Spot on mate and this new venue could be the best thing to happen to football in Sydney for 30 years.

I truly hope they do well.

The A-League without a salary cap? Be careful what you wish for

Well that’s it then. United for the Premier’s Plate. I tipped City to win the league so……..naturally….

The A-League without a salary cap? Be careful what you wish for

Exactly what I was alluding to in the piece RKing. To remove the cap and kill off clubs without the support of a second tier is a dangerous path to tread.

I think you have hit the nail on the head there Mark. As I tried to make very clear in the piece, without the second tier, clubs will be torpedoed.
