Be interesting to see what happens with the NSD and how they structure clubs

Battle for licences an intriguing aspect of Australian footballing landscape

No doubt Channel 10 FTA gives us more audiences. Not rocket science is it.

The interesting thing I want to know is what we’re the targets? They didn’t tell me that which is fine. It’s only 4 months into a new multi year deal so we need to give them time

The NSD clubs will have to pay $250K off the bat to FA. That is not necessarily a licence fee but it’s to cover Travel and other expenses to start up. Eventually any new clubs that come in via promotion will have to pay a fee too. Owners of these clubs if they go private will then sell their club, one of the assets in the BS being the licence to play in the NSD (what that is, only time will tell how they structure it)

It’s an issue. And yes FA did that in the past with A-Leagues. If. fa benefit from sponsors and tv deals, why not let NSD licence holders sell for profit

Yeah definitely see your point. What else can we do? We won’t get an overnight solution

'Look in our own backyard to develop the future': Leading TD calls for local hire as FA's 'disruptor'

Actually AAFC are just an association of clubs who are doing research and proposals for a NSD. FA will ultimately be responsible for it so FA have to pay for it. A lot of people don’t seem to understand this NSD is the FA’s. The AAFC are an agitator challenging the landscape.

FA will run the competition and will pay for it. Hence why they have the final say on all of this.

The NPL fees are a revenue stream for the games governing bodies, it won’t disappear.

It’s also a revenue stream for clubs covering costs.

It’s Bs for anyone to think they will disappear

We need to get something done that is long term and we need patience. There is no overnight fix sadly

Cummins is quality.
Perfect way to bowl on that pitch

Captain fantastic! Pakistan lose 7-20 as Cummins, Starc spark stunning collapse to put Aussies in command

Should be a cracking game sunday. Carbon copy of last year.

City really blew it against Sydney FC .

Sorry I didn’t mean to have so many question marks next to my comment hahaha I appreciate your kind words :)!

Do school teachers make the best coaches?

Can see why you give yourself that nickname 😂

Yep well said

Funny thing, believe it or not I used to teach accounting at uni for a number of years. Then when i worked as an accountant and ran training sessions, I was able to utilise a lot of skills and experiences from uni to the office. I has to make the adjustment of course that at work you are dealing with colleagues not students so you had to be respectful of that and make the adjustment so you don’t treat your work mates like they were your students hahah

Similarly teachers need to remember when coaching adults they need to adjust from children to adults. If you treat adults like children it won’t work. But a good coach will make that adjustment.

The Wanderers in season one had like 300 visits, think Melb City had like 30-40 at the same time.

Things are far less than they used to be now of course

Funny you say that. Someone made that point to me the other day haha it’s cheaper than babysitting. Difference is parents are usually there lol

Was it something to do with Brisbane’s financial situations?

If you don’t like my articles, who gives a damn lol what you think really doesn’t matter so not sure why you keep commenting ????

Goodship ready for next coaching challenge

Not really. She has coached other places too just I don’t know off the top of my head. She is highly regarded by players and other coaches so she is top notch by all accounts

Blayney makes history as Young Matildas head to FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup

Does the ‘Future Matilda’s’ program in Sydney and also the national under 20s coach. She has been an assistant in the past at the Wanderers in the W-League.

Don’t think they under performed as the stats IIRC back up that they were dominant.
They created good chances in most games.
They had more ‘local’ players playing regularly than this season I think. Their budget was actually low, I think signed players who wanted to play for roar at the time on minimal $$$
We have to ask why they didn’t come back. A few got contracts overseas but many went to other A-league womens clubs.
A lot of staff last year were volunteers and this year they had QAS paid staff.
Definitely should have done better in the semi but still no reason to move on Goodship last year other than political reasons. And nothing against Garrath McPherson either, not his fault

Aberration.
