There is only one way for the Socceroo and the Matildas to get press coverage that is to win trophies. To be honest both the teams have had opportunities to do this but they have fallen short when they have had the best media coverage and the country behind them, this is now becoming regular occurrences. To most sport lovers in this country they are just not seen as the pinnacle in sport because of this, in short they are becoming teams that promise a lot and deliver little, it’s bit like ho hum we go again. I hope Miller has a long period of soul searching because his recklessness has now caused us to now question everything about the team when it could of been so different. Arnie deserves better than this from his players.

Are we a mature enough football nation to honestly discuss the Socceroos?

The boys worked hard wrecked by one stupid tackle when the opposition player had his back to goal. I feel a bit for Arnie he has to fill gaps left by Mooy Rogic and Leckie all good players and play with a team with no real regular goal scoring forward. I think Duke is finished and not sure about Metcalf time for Yendi, Bos and Tulio to shine

The ANZ-T league..

Will East Coast-based National Second Tier sink or swim?

The tagger, football supporters have felt the jack boots of the AFL planted firmly on footballs growth for far too long. Come to Tasmania not one proper rectangular stadium bit we now building a thie yes a third AFL monstrosity. Government funding is so skewed in favour of AFL it outright discrimination.

Code wars rage on despite Matildas mania

The tagger, not only do you want a game of your own you want to deny other codes the funding, the media and the area as associated with bing top dog. One one else comes along and the AFL circle the wagons. Typical of how football, has been mal treated for far too long. Football deserves equal support and not before time.

The A League management should be putting pressure on the Tassie government to build a boutique rectangular stadium because there is just nothing here for an A League franchise.

A-Leagues set to expand to South East Queensland in 2025/26, is Gold Coast, Brisbane or Sunshine Coast the best bet?

In support as long as Macarthur are replaced. They have brought nothing to the A League and definitely not the people.

Why are the Bulls in the ALeague? they are letting down the integrity of the competition. Their crowd numbers are pathetic.

The A-League weather jinx: Should Macarthur FC have rescheduled?

Football are getting as woke as the cancel brigade. And now they are conflicted between politics and football.

'Seriously FIFA?': Australian football leader blasts 'tone deaf' decision to make supermodel a World Cup ambassador

Scout, countries like Vietnam can pick the best our best are playing AFL, ARL Cricket and Basketball.

Young Socceroos taught a harsh but familiar lesson against Vietnam in the U/20 Asian Cup

Same issues time and again. Can’t hold the ball under pressure, passing slow, no lack of pace and inaccurate, lack of athleticism means we will always struggle. Morgan’s record is less than impressive, loosing to the Uzbecks should never happen we need and must do better in these age groups.

David Warner should only be selected when the pitches are rock hard and show no deviation off straight and humidity is low so the ball does not swing. Otherwise he’s toast.

Does anyone care. McCarthurare a disappointment both on and off the field.

The A-League weather jinx: Should Macarthur FC have rescheduled?

G money. And if they show promise where do think they’ll be directed. Whilst the FFA have done many good things I think talent identification and retention and youth development needs improving. Having our under age teams being beaten on a regular basis is not acceptable to the Australian sporting fan, it makes the code look sub standard. And is not a good portence for future Socceroos success.

Unifying Australian football starts at the grassroots level

Musky is a winner, and Australians like winners. He deserves an opportunity.

Graham Arnold 'can’t possibly' pick A-League players for the World Cup

Australian love winners and at the moment Australian football is a non winner from all its international teams through to weak youth development and a non existent media department.
The FFA has to lift its game if we are to be accepted and respected and not just seen a a sport played by athletes who are not good enough for NRL, AFL and Cricket.

How can Australian football attract new fans to the beautiful game?

chris I question Foords value to the team. She is there to score goals, but she just not score enough of them.

Frail Matildas downed by Canada as pressure on Gustavsson ramps up

Very disappointing she knows the votes lay with more support for AFL and NRL. No different to News Corp and Nine who are so disgustingly bigoted against football.

State Premier's role as a Legacy '23 ambassador is an insult to football in Australia

Just a thought, is it time for the Matildas to play a more counter attacking style. Defend in depth with a quick transition, would suit our best player Sam K especially if she gets one on one with an opposition defender.

Frail Matildas downed by Canada as pressure on Gustavsson ramps up

Where’s our Rose. Probably playing AFL or NRL because there is certainly no equivalent in the Matildas set up. If don’t find these types of players to support Kerr and Fowler we be in the second division.

Mick, no I’m not annoyed, we have free speech and choice in this country, at least we used too. Given the power of the press that supports NRL in NSW and peer pressure that comes with that I’m not surprised.

It's exhausting being a football fan in 2022

Mick, a bit late with this comment. The indigenous people are gifted and natural athletes. They have proved their ability at the biggest test international sports (same Kerr and Cathy Freeman). Football Australia should be putting a lot more resources into indigenous football development.

At work. I agree, it would be less of an embarrassment if football was there. I am surprised that the Former commonwealth African countries have not pushed for its inclusion. Being cynical I would guess that the Australian officials are strong NRL and AFL types and would block any move in this respect.

Ernie’s at the wheel - but not as the 'distruptor'

Nothing in the Australian or other News Corp rags. This mob won’t be happy until they cremated and buried football in this country.

Let the A-League battle for Sydney begin

Mick, I respect your comments, but it’s hard to compare a world game with a parochial small sport like NRL which is really a big game in a small pond, in a global sense.
