That’s what I thought 😱

Sydney FC have a vision, but do their A-League rivals?

Well are you going to fix it? 😛

An exhibition weekend with real meaning

Why is this article on the Football tab—needs to be moved to the League Tab!!!!!!!!!

An exhibition weekend with real meaning

“Saw my team” I thought your team were playing in the NPL 😂

SFC are the benchmark for other clubs for the moment that is all and the other clubs just have to catch up, and they will.

That’s not to say there’s still not a lot more work for SFC to do to connect with more potential football fans who live in greater Sydney.

The new SFS will be a new benchmark and will take a lot of work to fill it (if ever), but so what if it doesn’t, the location is perfect for a club like Sydney FC and in years to come will be iconic like all the other big clubs in major cities around the world.

It’s going to take time of course, but the HAL and their clubs are here to stay. All the clubs are still very young as the HAL is. However, It’s the HAL that needs to grow first and take the clubs with it, but it won’t grow without expansion—expansion is vital for Australian football to grow—without it; the Australian clubs won’t reach their full potential.

All we just need to do is just keep plugging away at it and we will get there eventually in the end, producing young Australian talent equal to that, of anywhere in the world.

Punter, Nemesis is hurting right now, we need to be gentle and more understanding of his plight. I’ve never seen him this desponded before. 😢

Actually that sounds very likely—blackmail? Which you can understand coming from an NSL team. Why not just ask for an absorbent rent?

You have to build it if you want them to come

And just how are they going to stop people standing on the hill area?

Why we should all pick a J.League team to support this season

Marinos, will still want to go forward, that’s Ange’s style—so they can be hurt on the counter. I reckon Corica will exploit that somehow and play lot tighter and a bit deeper in the midfield perhaps with Le Fondre dropping back further into the midfield with Barbarous’s pace up front on the counter. I really think SFC will be a lot stronger in the second leg.

Redondo – I can’t believe I’m going to suggest this as I hate the tactic of parking the bus. However, desperate times need desperate actions. And knowing how much Ange’s teams struggle against teams that park the bus; will Corica resort to this tactic? Perhaps just a little as we need to win so we do have to get forward to do that. Do we know if Zullo will be fit enough to play in the return leg?

Hopefully, a boisterous full house can turn things around. I don’t think SFC turned up last Wednesday night and I do think we can play a lot better than that. SFC will want to show the supporters that Wednesday night was not the real SFC out there on the park.

Why we should all pick a J.League team to support this season

Sorry no, not for me; I’ll respect all J-League teams and fear them when they come up against my team SFC. I will only follow SFC and GCU (if they ever return to the HAL). I use to be a staunch Chelsea supporter, but not so much now. The EPL is increasingly becoming less important to me—I only have so much time I can devote to Football and Australian Football. Our national Australian Football teams will only be my other focus. ⚽

Why we should all pick a J.League team to support this season

In my heart I hoped SFC could win their first game in the ACL, but in my head I new that the outcome would be defeat for SFC, but by such a big margin, I thought not.

So how did it come to this? I am going to point the finger at the Lowy family and FOX for holding back the HAL for more than a decade to a miserable Pi$$ant 10 team competition.

The HAL by this stage in 2020 should have been by now: two divisions of 14 clubs, a home and way competition with promotion/relegation.

The HAL is too small with not enough quality players and intensity to produce quality teams who can compete in such a high levelled competition as the ACL.

FOX has deliberately stifled the HAL’s growth to fit its agenda––a pigeon hole comp fill in, for their TV scheduling. The Lowys let FOX dictate the size and scheduling of the HAL to suit them not Australian Football.

It’s time to expand the HAL to 14 clubs now and set in place a road map for a second division for the future with pro/rel.

Fans and media need to hold football's leaders to account

Talay said, “God was on God’s side” that day—I know what he meant by that line even if you don’t and far from being simple minded; it’s all about intent. I bet you were crowing when Ange was the manager of the record breaking Roarcelona when he was in charge.

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

zero shots on target in their 4 or 5 shots total, if you can call some of the shots, and that with 60% possession. ”

60% possession. Bingo! I am a SFC supporter watching the WU vs Roar game as a neutral. Your above statement perfectly illustrates what went on in that afternoon the Roar scored their goal then retreating back to defend their box, which completely left WU with the ball and no way thru. Equates to a coach with no confidence in his recruitment—ugly boring winning football. Mind you WU have been guilty of the same tactic. I don’t feel sorry for them only myself for wasting 90 mins of my life and paying Kayo for that game.

Yep that is the term—well spotted Mid. 👍

I suffered through it as a true believer as I am, I am not sure what you were watching tho. 👎

I would say after that round, as far as rookie coaches are concern—Talay can coach, but Fowler can’t. It’s not too hard to tell your team to fill the box with 10 out field players. Even Simon Hill (or whoever it was stated that). And Andy Harper acknowledging the point.

Rubbish! I am a true believer, only one code for me. ⚽

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

Yeah Waz, yawn… they parked the bus after they scored their goal even before that they were boring. For the neutral is was a bore fess. Your only saving grace was, WU are no better; they are guilty of the same tactic. Only 3000 K turned out to see these two teams play.

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

“I can find 2 teams playing at the local park more entertaining than the UEFA Cup Final.”

Yep, so can I; two under 10 yr old teams uncorrupted by a vociferous coach to win ugly at all costs by parking the bus. Pure football intent to win going forward—like most under 10s do before they grow up.

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

Sorry you’re wrong—Football is entertainment (good and bad)—this has nothing to do with sokkah gimmicks—its about intent.

There are a lot of your countrymen who would back that up in England—just think of any commentator in England who would call Mourinho’s football entertaining exciting football opposed to a Guardiloa or a Klopp.

All I can take out of your comment is that, you didn’t see the Nix defeat Melb C 1-0 where two Englishmen hailing from the lower leagues of English football in a beautiful worked move to score one of the great goals of the HAL season then not fall back and parked the bus—liked the Roar team did in their game against WU. Both teams Nix and Melb C playing in NZ went at it for the entire 90 mins.

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

Waz – did you see the Nix vs Melb C game in the same round of WU vs Roar? Are you really suggesting that RF’s tactics have more beauty than that of Talay’s—both rookie coaches in their first year? Football is about entertainment. As Fad said, WU vs Roar was a shocker! I want RF to succeed, but he is increasingly falling into the trap of playing ugly football to win.

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

Stu – there are a good number of youngsters coming to the fore, but as usual a lot of them are stuck on the players bench.

This illustrates that, expansion is vital, so they can be seen playing top level Australian football.

Another team will be coming in next year allowing more opportunities for the kids to get regular football. Hopefully, we can get up to 14 teams sooner rather than later, to accommodate these youngsters on the fringe.

That’s not to say that, the visa players have been detrimental to the HAL—we need the mix of quality visa players and young players in Australian Football.

It is vital we get to two 14 team divisions, up and running, as soon as possible.

For the good of the game in Australia and on the world stage. ⚽

Has the A-League ever had this many quality kids or better camera angles?

I must have a feeble mind. I just can’t see it working with 1-2-3 national divisions. But hey let’s see more comments on this one. However, I still think that the FFA should set up its own Kayo type of service just for Football the A-League, FFA Cup, W-League, Y-League, NPL, ACL, WC qualifiers and anything else that is can be utilised. The FFA Football streaming service, they can hire their own production company and control the whole football calendar say for $26 per month (?). And bring on board sponsors and sell advertising spots on the service.

A radical proposal for a revised A-League

Too complicated for the Australian broadcasters to jump on board. 2 divs 14 teams in each for me—lined up with the European seasons starting in Aug – May. 7:30pm kick offs (local times). And the FFA having their own streaming platform available to the public at $26 per m.
