Roberto, Cambodia really. But they don’t have 3 other codes picking the best before football gets a turn. When are we going to wake up. I also just noticed also that our under sixteens lost to Myanmar. This not a good portence for the future is it.

The Socceroos' next ‘golden generation’ may be a lot closer than you think

Grem, we are producing players for silver and bronze not gold medals. Producing gold medal players we all the attributes should be the bench mark.

The best place to spot future sporting star is at the local little athletics meeting. The drive, dedication of these kids are amazing. The is where the future star are for what ever football code has the plan to get them. When my girls were at little aths I did not see one football scout. Such a lost opportunity for our national teams. As I have said before if you are going to play against the worlds best you need to select your best. Rather than recruiting marquee players, I would like the money to go into large scholarships to lock in the future.

Worth noting that the English Women Team had a change of manager not that long ago. So good managers are out there and a change can be for the better. For the Matildas to continue with the parent guy without seeing who else is available is a mistake given the incumbents record.

The A-League finally has a fixture list fans can support

People need to understand that Tasmania does not have one half descent Rectangular stadium. AFL and cricket share the two big stadiums. One in Hobart and one on Launceston and they are now pushing for another one. A rectangular stadium could be shared with rugby. Heaven forbid we even get a Socceroos or Matildas game down not having facilities has consequences for Australian football. On another thread the under 16 Australian squad was announced and guess what no Tasmanians. The state government does the bare minimum for the sport and will not entertain a football stadium. A 10,000 seater with admin, media and catering facilities would be a great fillip young players and followers of the game. Equity Is one of the buzz words in today’s world, but not much equity when it comes to Tassie football.

How Tasmania can build four stadiums without breaking the bank

The money from Silver Lake should be used to attract juniors that have world class attributes. Offer large scholarships open to all athletes that locks in these potential stars before the AFL and NRL them. Two each for girls and boys. Repeat each year, there may be businesses out there happy to put in.

If you need star quality to attract fans, the new A-League season is off to a good start

Mooy is a gifted ball carrier and visionary but he is just a yard too slow for the big stage.

Where to next for Rogic and Mooy? Crucial decisions heading into the 2022 World Cup

Daddy people forget this it’s used in medicines, clothing and lots of other stuff. On renewable energy I heard the other day that Germany is dependant on gas to run their heavy industry because renewables don’t deliver enough grunt smelt steel production.

How should football protest Qatar 2022?

You cant sanction Quatar but do nothing about China. That is the height of hypocrisy. They bully the west, abuse human rights, deny their people free speech, detain and jail without due process. Personally I think they should kicked out of FIFA.

Make it rainbow coloured and people will be pouring through the gates.

Professional football can thrive only with strong community football support

Midfielder, yes it is an important ingredient. But getting football on as much media as possible is also important. Of course this can be achieved by through getting more involved in the community. Things like helping charities , organising school training sessions etc, and getting that on local media.

Huddo, are you serious. Where’s your rainbow flag emoji. We play China, in the World Cup qualifiers and they harvest organs from people they don’t like, enslave people they don’t like yet we keep,playing them. If your going take the moral high ground it should be applied equally

The Matildas need a coach, not a spin doctor

Punter
Well we need to the same then, plenty of money coming from Silver lake and Paramount. Where is it going. Time to invest like the Europeans because I won’t follow a code that keeps loosing at international level.

The Matildas need a coach, not a spin doctor

My comments on the Matildas v Portugal game reflect the continued poor performance of the team in a technical tactical sense. How can these so called athletes make it to the national team when they can’t pass a football (and this applies to many in the senior squad as well). Portugal could easily have won this game 5 zip. I asked my self how many of these girls have the athleticism to compete in the AFLW, and I don’t see many. It’s developing into a car crash and it’s time for the FFA to step in.

The Matildas need a coach, not a spin doctor

True..

Spain 7, Matildas 0: 'Why this, why now' is the question as coach's kids destroyed

When we need our National teams to be a beacon of how good the game is we get this result. The facts are we are loosing our competitiveness at international level. Most of our players are not good enough. No more excuses.

Spain 7, Matildas 0: 'Why this, why now' is the question as coach's kids destroyed

What good does this score line do for Australian football and the Matildas brand. It just drags it down further. There is something seriously wrong when all our international football teams struggle to compete., U23 lost 2 zip against Saudi Arabia and 3 zip against Japan, just not good enough. It’s the FFA’s job to fix this, the results just keep getting worse.

Grem, our under 23’s lost 3 nil against Japan. That’s a bad loss in any ones language. What is going on.

Qualifying for five straight World Cups is a great achievement, but now it's time to plan for the future

Plan for the future? our under 23’s are not good enough to beat same countries that beat the Socceroos. There are clearly issues with our youth talent and development, we are off the pace in Asia and it’s the CEOs job to fix it.

So after years of technical training and tactical smarts all we can bring to the table is “kick and scratch”. South American sides can do things things as well cynical acting, but they all comfortable on the ball. But the game is not in South America which levels up the teams IMO.

Peru wary of Socceroos' fighting spirit

Garry, Great….??. You jest surely.

No one wants to say it, but what happens if the Socceroos miss the World Cup?

Well Waz, your not going to win if you can’t score. Yes Arnie has made mistakes, most coach/managers do, but when you have a squad devoid of a single stand out player those mistakes become magnified.

No one wants to say it, but what happens if the Socceroos miss the World Cup?

We have to face facts. The Socceroos at the moment are not good enough. It’s not all Arnies fault. Other countries are putting heaps of money into youth, we need to do the same , otherwise the Socceroos brand will slip to be the our least watched national team. Same with the Matildas.

No one wants to say it, but what happens if the Socceroos miss the World Cup?

Their goal was a cracker and the guy scored it really showed up Davidson’s lack of pace.

Set piece double gives Socceroos boost ahead of massive World Cup clash

As a football fan all I want for football is respect from the local media and fellow sports lovers. Unfortunately because of self interest and preservation of their position in the local sport pecking order we tend to get little respect from either and then they expect us to sit on our hands while they eulogise lyrical their insular codes.

The A-League Men grand final was not a big event, but that’s okay
