Mick Malthouse give him a go, if he does well keep him. If there’s no improvement sack him like Malcolm Blight.

Who's the best candidate to replace Alan Richardson?

My Prediction 2020 Copa América. Pld,3#W,0#D,1#L,2#GF,2#GA,5#GD,-3#Pts,0. Australia fails to get out of group.

Socceroos confirmed for Copa America

Meat Loaf, John Farnham, Shania Twain, Delta Goodrem, Dire Straits, Adele, Alanis Morissette, Michael Bublé or Pink Floyd

Who should perform at the 2019 AFL grand final?

The long and short of it, the answer is no. Vettel’s only chance is for Lewis to retire and take his position at Mercedes.

Can Sebastian Vettel win another F1 title?

What this pointless five game series is basically a revenue raiser for the promoter. (World Ranking in brackets)
Two games versus Team USA. (1)
Two games versus Team Canada. (23)
One game versus Tall Blacks. (38)
Boomers (11) (Quarter-finalists at 1994 FIBA World Cup & 5th position overall) vs the might of Team USA (1), I expect two 20-30 point defeats.
This series comes 25 years after Australia’s peak performance at a World Championship.
A five game tournament versus (Lithuania (6), Slovenia (7), Russia (10), Brazil (12) & Philippines (31) would have provided a better preparation.

Boomers vs USA is a chance to see the next LeBron in action

2 tdf Stage wins 10 more wins are needed to equal Robbie McEwen. Robbie’s first victory came as a 27 year old in his third tdf.

Caleb Ewan claims second Tour de France stage win

Sydney in 2019 has the Seventh edition of the Shooting Para Sport Worlds in October.

Why Melbourne is the only choice for the Australian Grand Prix

Perth should bring the Formula E circus to town, with the 2018-19 season just completed, an early December race date is an option. Become the season opening race, with season 2018-19 providing 8 race winning drivers & teams. Perth needs an international evert replacing the Hopman Cup.

Simmons has decided to the skip the FIBA World Championships, if this sound familiar it reminds of Socceroo players who chose club before country, i.e. (money before country).

Simmons locks up biggest deal in history of Australian athletes

If only the Socceroos had such an awesomely talented player in the form Sam Kerr. Bravo.

Sam Kerr nutmegs defender and keeper for spectacular goal

Jorge Lorenzo has now managed 3 wins at Ducati, and has moved onto Repsol Honda. With Lorenzo having his worst start to a season in his WC racing career, I think his days at Honda are numbered. I believe he will replace a retiring Rossi at team Yamaha. His spot at Repsol Honda should be taken by an improving racer in the form of Australia’s Jack Miller. An Australian back at Honda will bring fond memories of Stoner, Doohan & Gardner all three World Champions.

The move that'll define Jorge Lorenzo's MotoGP legacy

2020 My predictions are…
Vettel retires (Launch business career). Riccardo to Ferrari, (Italian heritage).
Gasly to Renault, (French driver to French team). Verstappen to Mercedes, (Contract Clause). Bottas to Red Bull, (Vacancy & senior driver needed). de Vries to Red Bull, (Commercial reasons replace Dutchman with another). Hulkenburg retires (Joins WEC).
Ocon to Renault, (French driver to French team).

Could Daniel Ricciardo be set to break the driver market again?

Redirect future approach Australia has to spend money for the Matildas to improve, they need meaningful games. An annual tournament invite 3, 4 or 5 european national teams i.e. european continental champion & finalist.
In order for Australia to win the world cup it needs to get past the european teams. Then and then should it look to bid for a future world cup.

Matildas World Cup campaign leaves us wondering 'what if?'

NZ Best result Runners-up (2015, 2019)
Look forward to 2023…

New Zealand were robbed in the World Cup final

Riccardo to Ferrari,
Vettel to Mercedes,
Bottas & Gasly to Renault,
Hulkenburg to Red Bull.
Is my prediction…

Whether he wants to or not, Vettel is passing on the baton

Australian world No.1 Dylan Alcott wins inaugural Wimbledon quad singles crown.

Five unpopular takeaways from Wimbledon 2019

Australia has to spend money for the Socceroos to improve, they need meaningful games. An annual tournament like the Kirin Cup invite 3, 4, 5 or 6 national teams i.e. continental champions (Qatar, Mexico, Brazil, Portugal, Cameroon, New Zealand) or continental finalist’s (Japan, United States, Peru, France, Egypt, Papua New Guinea).

Arrogant Arnold needs wins under belts before demanding ruthlessness

With AFL football department spending soft cap in mind, who can they afford? Don’t promote from within seek an outsider.

Australia’s $46 million 2022 World Cup bid never had a chance it produced one vote from Germany’s “Der Kaiser”.
A joint bid from Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam. Spread the financial burden.
16 cities 16 stadiums 2034 Bid (9 Nations)
Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane (Australia)
Phnom Penh (Cambodia)
Jakarta, Samarinda & Surabay (Indonesia)
Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam & Kuala Terengganu (Malaysia)
Yangon (Myanmar)
Manila (Philippines)
Singapore (Singapore)
Bangkok (Thailand)
Ho Chi Minh City & Hanoi (Vietnam)
Australian, Indonesian & Malaysian teams would have guaranteed spots in tournament because of higher number stadiums and financial exposure. Semi finals and final (selection to be drawn from hat) in game in each of these three countries. The remaining 6 national teams would stage a home and away tournament in November 2033 for a World Cup final berth.
