Poppa didn’t play him until he scored a few times for the young socceroos. Arnold picked him as a striker. Aloisi played him as a midfielder. Craig Moore said he was the best young striker he’d seen, or something like that, and gave him his chance at Roar.

yes, I don’t like to look back and point fingers, but it seems to me that Aloisi did not do well by the young D’Aggers.

not many clubs without an ex Roar player rated among their best

start drafting some feature articles Stuart, ready to sell in 2023. On the host cities, training venues and camps that countries set up, what to see, where to stay, travel etc, for international outlets. There’s sure to be a demand.

Climb aboard the World Cup bandwagon, there is plenty of room!

Lots more than 2023 Stuart. There’s Tokyo 2021 and India 2022 on the way, Olympics and Asia Cup for the women. It’s a motza so to speak, for the players and the writers and broadcasters. And what a great way to build not just the team, with those annual steps, but also the game in Australia.
I just love it that we now have two girls, one’s just age 20, the other not much older, each earning more annually than the vast majority of AFL and NRL players.
I love football!!

Good luck to them, they came back well those last few games.
As a writer Doran, suggest you not work from memory for statistics as you say you did here for O’Donovan’s goal tally. Use facts, that’s what makes you, above the line, different to us down here, below the line.

I think I do deny it was boring, but it took a long time to get there. He worked on defence from the get go, as it was all bad last year. And there was a lot of side passing across the back for the first half of the season. That started to change this year, to a point where they were playing an attractive game in the last few. Overall, boring I’d agree. But it was building and did reach a good point.
But you have to ask yourself, why did he release D’Aggers?

still good for a laugh eh Andy

yep, midfielder, foundation player I believe

what reason would Roar have for wanting him gone? Makes no sense?

I’m sure I heard Harry’s name get a mention for the Victory job, could be wrong
Warren Moon did well in the NPL with Lions FC and was a front runner for many fans when Robbie got the job. Moon’s was appointed academy director (head coach I guess) and is now stepping up in the interim anyway. Would love to see him get it next year.

maybe it’s saying Moon is the long term pick
maybe we’ll run the right way at home now

he did spend a lot of time talking himself up – he is his own biggest fan, no doubt, but can’t deny he had us headed in the right direction.

according to this article, Darren Davies is taking over with Moon as assistant for the rest of the season, which makes sense I guess given Davies is the continuity for the senior team. The club email said they would announce the appointment process and head coach (meaning for next season on) at the end of the season.

In retrospect Waz, I don’t think he ever fully committed to Roar. We were always a stepping stone, everyone knew that, and Corvid 19 gave him the chance to take the step earlier. I guess it happens, but says a lot for A League clubs to grow their own coaches.

Incredibly disappointed with Robbie Fowler. Roar took a big gamble in giving him a chance to coach and this is the repayment. I know there are excuses, a virus and of course that’s what sent him home. But if he was committed he could be back in training in two weeks and thirty six hours time.
He believes he’s done enough to justify a better league, bigger job. He’s talked himself up and said several times on UK TV that he doesn’t get the credit he deserves in Australia. Maybe he’s right, good luck to him. Personally, I don’t think I’ll ever remember him as a Roar coach, not when he didn’t even finish a season.
I’d like to add thanks to the club, for getting an email out to members before this hit the news.

All being equal, the Matildas have the Olympics in 2021, the Asia Cup 2022 and a home World Cup in 2023. That’s a bonanza for us all. Who’s got the TV rights?

My favourite Simon Hill commentary moments

Simon makes a game easy to watch. His voice has a pleasant tone and he doesn’t overdo the talk, he just flows with the game. He knows you’re there to watch the game, not listen to him, and he assumes you have eyes and a certain level of intelligence. Unlike a few of the other commentators who irritate with too much talk and over-excitement too often.
He’s our best caller, by a long shot. Also writes some intelligent articles. Hope he doesn’t go far.

yes, good comment. maybe gen next can bid in forty years time when the game here has got some strength

Now let's try to host the men's World Cup

It would absolutely be a great success, they love their football. But who’s going to vote for them? I just don’t think England has enough friends at present, to win enough votes.

Now let's try to host the men's World Cup

so it’s not NZ’s Cup competition then. Get one, that include all clubs.

What next for the FFA Cup?

interesting when you look at the votes for this 2023 WWC. Europe and South America, the traditional power houses of football, both voted in blocks for Colombia but were outvoted by the rest. Is this a paradigm shift in power in world football? and does Australia now have a seat at the table? with Asia behind our bid, seems we are not on the outer there as some have said we are in recent years.

Now let's try to host the men's World Cup

yes, so get into the 21st century and let the ‘nix in.

What next for the FFA Cup?

let the Nix play in the NZFA Cup

What next for the FFA Cup?

England? too many self-made enemies for them to ever host a world cup. Who’s going to vote for England?
