Loves all live sport. Played rugby codes as a youth, cricket and athletics. Threw away the golf clubs and bought two bikes. Now a gentle road and mountain bike rider and a football fanatic with age. It's so big, we've just got to be part of it. Brisbane Roar member, NQ Cowboys fan.

good comment, no one will care about the colour or the stadium or whatever, if they win. They’ve dominated so many times this season, against top teams, but just haven’t scored. The inconsistent games that brought most of the criticism were during both the injury crisis (7 or 8 out) and coach dilemna. It’s surprising we aren’t lower down the ladder.
It all starts with good management, in the office and I’ve got faith in our execs, that they’re slowly turning the ship around. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Zac about the points he mentioned in his recent update.

kept JA alive

I wish them well, they’re kinda’ likeable

er wot? My comment is not an excuse, you’ve taken it completely out of context. Fans travel a lot, many Roar fans travelled from the Goldie to Redcliffe and to Suncorp. Some occasionally travel from Toowoomba to Suncorp as they did to Redcliffe and do from the Sunny coast. While numbers are dwindling, league wide, there’s still a dedicated core who travel a distance to home games. My point is, Sydney fans don’t have far to travel to a third of their away games, despite the attractions of the northern beaches.

Queensland Roar (maroon) is not such a bad thing as it would be much easier to find a home, anywhere from Gold Coast to Cairns, plenty of suitable stadiums and parks available for home grounds. But given the number of players, m & w, and growing population, I think they should stick with the Brisbane moniker.

several of the youngsters look promising

I’m backing them to get to the grand final. Not sure they can win it.

sure, lived there for many years, that’s life in Sydney, you have 5 reachable options. Takes me 90 minutes some days, for home games while some fans travel three hours each way (not every game) from Toowoomba and up north.

indeed, but no to the maroon, it’s Queensland and rugby union and league, not Brisbane in any way. When there used to be Brisbane rep teams their colour was white, but orange is Roar history, don’t throw that out too.

Roar CEO in a brief to fans federation said distributions from APL next season will be less, assumedly that means from broadcast earnings

Waz for APL, start as fans adviser, he’ll end up owning the joint in a few years if he can keep his dummy in place

I’ve heard them mention that ‘self-sustaining’ a few times now, been their objective from the get-go I think. Best bet would be to copy Dolphins or Panthers and build a money-making clubhouse or shipping centre. Their academy side, not top of the table but are coming along nicely with some solid youngsters across all positions. I don’t know where Ivan Ozzie’s been but his hat trick v Rochedale was nice.

Fong is not still on the board APL surely? He was recalled back to Jakarta way back.

rugby league world cup in England played at a few EPL club venues, Anfield and Etihad from memory, but it’s definitely not a regular occurrence. They do concerts too.

Does the A-League have the clout to make a UK-bound event round work in season 2024/25?

good luck Mariners, I’m hoping to sleep through this one

Grem, I personally believe we are doing the Pacific nations a disservice by entertaining NZ in our league. They’re the Oceania big boys, they are the ones who should be developing Oceania instead of just taking all it offers, a place at every FIFA tournament. There’s much potential in those small Pacific nations, as evidenced in the Pacific Games tournament last year, with Fiji, PNG and Solomons particularly strong. We, in Asia, should focus on Asia starting with Timor Leste and SE Asia.

Whatever you’re smokin’ Stuart, stop it.

and whatmore, he linked Ange to his second club, not the one that gave him a shot

money’s got something to do with it too, better pay, better potential for progression

Forget those bringing down the game, what if we embraced the A-League and Australian football cups are actually half-full?

very few haven’t come through the A Leagues, a couple from Scotland of late, but most had their starts in the A Leagues.
All of the Matildas came through the A League or W League as it was known.
Without the A League many of the NT players may well have not got a start in their professional career.

somehow, I feel that dream is unachievable. The NPL clubs, from my perspective, are pretty insular and most would fail to attract anywhere near the crowds we see at A League matches. The franchises are not about to walk away from their significant investments and accept relegation. We need, in my view, a version of P/R that gives NPL clubs across the country not just Vic/NW, a go at the top division but still protects the franchises. Maybe as an interim, no more expansion other than say six spots, one for each association, to be won by playoff.

the Socceroos or Matildas won’t progress far until we sort out the A Leagues.

Good comment. Perception is everything.
On the language learning, no doubt you have experience but in my experience learning two foreign languages, it takes way more than a year part-time to become fluent. If he’s got a sense of it and a get by vocabulary, he’ll learn quickly in Germany.
