I really enjoy your articles .
Maybe Perth are not quite as hungry after having won the title last season. That 5 percent less effort is the difference sometimes.

Perth Glory: The good and the bad

I remember Ardilles and Ricky Villa winning a F a cup for spurs . Pretty sure it was around the time Argentina won the World Cup , then there was the Falklands war with Argentina and Britain, well loved by spurs fans if I remember right .

Pele . Scored about 1200 goals , let’s hope the Port Macquarie Pele is even half as good as the Brazilian maestro.

Amazing goal by Timmy

The official early season A-League report cards

On what evidence rowdy . I’ve coached and administered afl in Nsw , it’s going nowhere and not taking over anything. It’s a delusion from southern states that there game is growing . It’s always been in Nsw for over 100 years and is still of a woeful standard unfortunately.

The seniors and juniors in Nsw are of terrible unskilled standard and is dwarfed in every measurable metic by 10 other winter sports . Nsw Afl clubs need players to double up kids in most ages and they split there age groups to every 2 years to cover the lack of players.
Grade afl clubs will have 100 players on their books , but that’s every one that’s played in the last 20 years, the clubs are poor beyond belief and most teams have players that are filled with ex Victorian’s 30 kgs over weight . Been like this for the last 40 years. Most clubs have a few leagies or soccer players in odd shorts and socks who have a mate playing to fill up the numbers . But get an away game, you will be 4 short and the 55 year old coach will play forward pocket.

The only behemoth that might eventually pincer nrl is the very rich world of rugby union. Soccer will continue to dominate the junior numbers . Seriously the gws will be lucky not to be relocated or fold within 15 years . That’s just the reality of afl in Nsw . It’s no threat to the nrl .

The National Rugby League chairman thinks five hours on a plane is too much

Lol Rubbish Rowdy, stick to afl topics , don’t try to lecture about rugby league.

Western Australia club rugby league has been full of kiwi imports and expats from Nsw qld since the 90s, top Perth clubs would smash most Nsw country teams.

Yes Mahler , don’t use facts to put up an argument .
The counter argument is apparently b s. , no actual facts or words .
This is the new online era of post truth and online denial , so facts are not needed .
We’ve been in recession for a while now as I’ve spoken about previously.

I disagree with your post , as I real life experience of Australia’s recession, not a Disney tv version .
Mahler is far more on the ball when it comes to economics then your post as any research would prove .
5 percent is atrocious… that’s one million unemployed . Just economically one million is a huge strain on many resources , never mind the mental and physical stress for those one million .
It is a. All time record bad result for Australia, especially in the casual workforce era of today and every economist I read has reinforced how stagnant the economy is and only the right wing journos are trying to deflect it .

I had to chuckle a bit that you refer to Disney as your mark of current wealth , having a roof over your head is more important then a bit of Walt Disney . Did you know that 60,000 Aussie kids are homeless on any given night ? That’s a stat , that gets hidden from Australians because it’s quite confronting and uncomfortable. But I use it to highlight that we are in an uncomfortable recession as Mahler said earlier.

Now if you use tv metrics to measure wealth as you did … then Australia’s tv networks and Foxtel are sinking , so those measures are terrible and again are another indication of a tanking economy, I dare say the Aussie economy is tanking worse then the Gold Coast suns , a rudderless ship to be honest .
Xenophobia too .

Trips to the beach sound great , I hope those in drought areas or struggles with fire , can get a trip into the beach this summer .
