I’m just asking you to elaborate

Do you think some investors are swayed ? Who

If the A-League did have relegation, perhaps the bottom four should all go?

Not true nick

Jets have been wooden spooners and still held roughly the same average crowds

They won’t be sacking merrick imo

Lets hear some solutions for the problems you see at Newcaste ??
If merrick was sacked , who comes in
The Chinese owner is not spending money, so offload these players, who do we get instead?

Why is this punter?

If we had a top 4 final system, the rest of the season would be far more interesting, with the possibility of city , Adelaide or Wellington fighting for 4 th

As for relegation battles. . I’m not against it , but it’s usually just delaying the inevitable for a poor club who bounce up and down divisions. I’m guessing pro/ rel will happen, but might be 10 years away , and is this what fans or the poorer clubs want ?? Not sure , maybe, being a yo yo club could be interesting for some .
Or will relegation see the demise of some clubs ..
It’s really an unknown .

You get your Leicester city miracles ( double relegation/ double promoted/ champions). once in a lifetime

or man city ( double relegation 20 years ago). renaissance ……
and I guess these are the storyline’s thst would infatuate football supporters in Australia were similar to occur .

Top 4 I like

2 legged playoff games 1v 4 . 2v 3

Jets crowds have held up ok despite a average season so far.

Considering the jets home gsmes
2 x Wednesday,
1 x Thursday and
0 x Friday night games yet
Only 2 Saturday home games all year , which is the best time for crowds .

When clubs are actually allowed to select the day for their own home games will be a good thing for football.

A wise man told me to have a more positive mindset about Australian football, so with that in mind .
I totally believe the Ffa is capable of setting up a second division with pro / rel . I’m also confident that the clubs who paid 15 million dollars liscence fees will not fight pro : rel and accept any losses as just part of the game .
Re the jets , have to see it more positively that Merrick and the players you called out for poor performance are more then capable of winning silverware this season, not even considering their release for next season. All Brazilians can score goals and understand your frustration but Jair is quality and will end up with 15 goals this season. As for Georgievski, he will be winning his second Marsden medal on Grand final day .

The crowds in the Victoria footy comps were minuscule years ago and bad in the 80s. Yet are at very good levels now
That doesn’t seem to work with your theory . Or is it just soccer and basketball are not capable of victtype crowd increase

How to get better A-League crowds and TV ratings

I haven’t seen the decision yesterday , but most jets fans said it wasn’t a penalty anyhow.

But the jets had 3 penalties not given in one game against Mrlbourne city , plus 2 other howlers , which were identical to penalties that same referee had given to other teams , the jets got lucky only once against ccm when they scored an offside goal.

The bottom 4 teams this year have been slaughtered by bad decisions, but in no way saying that any of those teams would be higher on the ladder, but they are definitely getting the worst decisions . The worst decision in football history was the var a league grand final glitch .. so Ernie Merrick has every right to not trust the var .

If you read Ben Wilson referee reports each week , there are lots of admissions of mistakes from the var occurring .

It’s just not working ..

Jets, City fuming at VAR calls in A-League

So the lesson in this

Get rid of the var ?

Or
give each team only 2 reviews ( var challenges ) per game as seems to work well in Nfl and cricket .

Jets, City fuming at VAR calls in A-League

So true waz.

Breathtaking incompetence from the var . And incredibly no one in the var box decided to we better not rule this a goal until we get the actual vision back .
Technology has no place during game time .

Jets, City fuming at VAR calls in A-League

1997
We had 25 chances in the first half to win it .
But that offside goal did burn .

Still , Australia blew it

Saddest day in Australian sport

Boyle scores 2 goals against Lebanon . I’m hoping he is the messiah,
but wait and see how he goes against much better teams then Lebanon.

Yes , massive participation could lead to a better generation of players, we are about to see in the next 3-4 years those who have come through the national curriculum … fingers crossed

The Socceroos’ loss is Asia’s gain

Absolutely

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

So as long as my opinion is agreeable to yours it’s ok

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

Fadida being yoda

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

I’ve been to every home game I could this year , missed 2 because of work . I’ll be doing the 3 hour return trip for the next home game on a Thursday night ffs .

I didn’t watch the football on the weekend because I was away with my kids and got back last night, …to work .. so missed the jets game on tv because of work ( arvo / night shift.

Seriously fair weather fan
I’ve been going for 40 years

Fair weather fan . I follow rubbish teams like parramatta and north Mrlbourne and the wallabies, I’m hardly fair weather

It was a good reset weekend tbh

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

A weekend away with my kids beats the football any day .

Maybe you could refrain from giving me any more advice in the future .

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

All good . .. I’m hoping for wallabies Waratahs , kangaroos and eels success in those sports, a few months away yet .
As for the A league …I will barrack for Perth to win the title as I used to live there a while ago . .
The best thing for the A league is it could even be a 3 or 4 way title race on the last day of the season .

What’s next for the Socceroos? Friendlies or World Cup qualifiers on the horizon?

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

“ you missed some good games “ possibly I did .

However, The kids have grown out of watching A league … so the countryside and rivers and beach took preference and it was damn enjoyable to not watch the football for a change .

However I did read up later on about the gloating by some about the Socceroos losing . .. .. can’t get my head around how many people want them to fail .

Perth Glory topping the table is great for the A-League

I can’t say I watched any A league on the weekend such is my frustration at not only the jets hopelesslness ,,, but var has ripped the heart out of the game and gallop has made me despair at where we are headed., But well done glory for their efforts thus far.

One of the most disheartening things on the weekend was how much gloating and enjoyment a lot of people got from the Socceroos losing . We even had a story about how if we had Aussie rules or cricket players in the Socceroos we would win . Seriously who gets enjoyment out of our national team losing .

Anyhow moving on from that , it’s now time to assess the Socceroos performance over 5 games and think about if we are going to qualify for the World Cup ?
Was it just an injury crisis that made Australia poor or are we in freefall ,
Is Arnold the right man for this job , considering his international record
Or can we find a better coach to steer us to the World Cup ? Thoughts anybody?

So the organisation that just dismissed him , is now going to employ him in a higher position.
Wow .

"Who's available...Alen Stajcic?"

I’m not sure the generation of Aussie kids are desperate or dedicated enough to get off the iPads to be good enough.. There might be a few exceptions

The kids that make it at high level sport are fanatics at their practice.

I think we will see more decline in general from all Australia sporting teams . I see a decline in standard of our domestic soccer rugby cricket or Aussie rules comps in recent years. This trend will continue I believe unfortunately.

Australia leading the race to mediocrity in the footballing world

People need to be realistic about how good Australia is at sport .
We have not been very good on a world ranking since the Olympics from the early 2000s

The Socceroos are not great but they drew with a good Denmark team in the World Cup and lost 2-1 to eventual champions France and thrashed Hungary prior to the tournament.

Our men’s Aussie rules team has played Ireland semi regularly for years and lose 50 percent of the games against the Irish team , and the Irish team are amateurs. At least Australia won the most recent series .

In sports played by commonwealth nations and a few others , hardly world sports , the wallabies and men’s cricket team are in decline and so forth .

I think it’s just hard for people to accept where Australia stands , because people believe the media bs about how we are the best .
