Manchester City, Western Sydney Wanderers and Geelong Cats are my favourites.

Yep and 2023 is a great time to fix it all

The wrongs Australia must right at the 2023 Women's World Cup

Yeah the polish in the final third is lacking but hopefully it’s a situation where once they get a goal or two it starts becoming 3-4. Momentum is everything

From Spartans to Wander Women: The rise of Bryleeh Henry and Ashlie Crofts

Would love to see the Jets and Adelaide make the Finals

Setting the right culture is the key to success in any sporting environment

Yep you need everything aligned for sure

Setting the right culture is the key to success in any sporting environment

I think it’s worth revisiting Nth QLD

Where should the A-Leagues expand to next?

It doesn’t seem good as an outsider and from hearing from people who were there last year compared to this, something isn’t right

Agree. Technology is rapidly changing the way we do things, but a coach needs to be there as much as he can. Hopefully he spends more time in Aus in the coming 18 months

Where's Tony? Matildas coach's absence becoming a concern

Nevin is quality mate. She is a great reader of the play and tackler. She also is an attacking weapon with that left peg

The APL is owned by all clubs. Silver Lake own 33%. Viacom and FA have a stake but it’s unclear if it’s an equity stake or a revenue share only

Cup upsets should not be used as evidence as they are an aberration.

Common sense should be the evidence. Full time footballers in far better facilities than NPL players will win more often than not.

My point is, the discussion here is how some NSD clubs could compete at a league level. And use cup upsets as an example Don’t think so.

The biggest argument saying an NSD is sustainable is the fact it’s cheaper. How can cheaper be better in terms of quality?

A-League licence fees are not as lucrative as you might think

The Bulls are planning on building facilities in the Macarthur Region to the tune of nearly $40M, they will be community assets if and when they are complete. Their owners also have property investments in the region.

Spot on. This myth that NPL clubs can compete regularly with A-League clubs is hilarious based on a handful of Cup upsets.

Id love to know the intricacies how it all works but everyone sights commercial confidence which is fine

Can they afford it though? Many can’t.

Also a one off win by Apia doesn’t meant they can compete on a lower budget at a sustainable and ongoing level.

BTW Apia beat a mostly NPL2 team essentially as wanderers played a lot of their youth who play NPL2

$10-15M depending on the club

A-League licence fees are not as lucrative as you might think

$2.5M is projected running costs. I don’t think NSD clubs can afford to pay that, plus a $3.5m licence.

The $2.5m is rubbish anyway, the PFA mark of $5.4M is far more accurate.

Point is NPL clubs can’t afford it. That simple.

I think licences are worth $20M anyway or the value of being in the APL is anyway.

Be interesting to see how it pans out from that end.

So your saying if Victory or a club sells then the entire APL will get a cut? I guess depends on terms of sale and terms of being part of APL

The Eels did in Parra Power which had moderate success.

Penrith City only lasted one year but that was nearly 40 years ago.

This is where you need to strike while the iron is hot. The Olympic infrastructure project is the right time to hit the government up for a new stadium that can be used for the games but then re-structured to cater for other sports.

A golden opportunity for QLD in my view with 2032 coming up.

Where should the A-Leagues expand to next?

Great idea. I agree we need a plan with substance.

With NSD, how many NPL clubs can afford it? I agree with setting a benchmark, $20M or don’t bother.

The NSD was pencilled In for Jan to May this year but what have we heard?

It’s been pushed back to 2023 but most clubs don’t know what’s happening with it. How can this be the case? A number are fighting their own personal battles.

Many in Victoria have a legal fight with FV about promotion from last year. Sydney Olympic have major debts or at least have issues with Bill Pappas scandal.

Sydney United or Rockdale City…they have fan issues.

None are able to sort their issues out in their own state comp. How can they be in a NSD?

Where should the A-Leagues expand to next?

The problem is the A-League became stale. 10 teams is boring. Especially with no promotion or relegation.

Geelong won’t work sadly . There is not enough interest

Where should the A-Leagues expand to next?

They will also bare 33% of expenses

Good piece but I think Nevin was outstanding in the second game against the USA.

I do like TG’s thinking in that he was blooding a lot of players which needed to happen. Winning Asian cup is a bonus. We need to win the 2023 World Cup

Why the Matildas should win the Asian Cup in India - and a few reasons they might not

Not sure. The Bulls owners have committed nearly $40M to the region to build facilities and so on. The Camden and Campbelltown councils haven’t given approval yet for this to go ahead, so who knows
