Untill all players and staff are virus free for at least 2 months via weekly testing then no games be played.

Tottenham Hotspur receive positive COVID-19 test

The A-League should just cancel the remainder of the season and start fresh next season in April.

Is it any surprise that New South Wales will host the rest of the A-League season?

“ultimately mean a lower quality product on the field.”
Can’t see that happening. All ready low

A-League plans to resume in July

The big names of soccer of the 1980’s are pushing for playing football where it should be, in winter. Soccer in this country has had a good run of fresh air playing in the off season. Lets see how good and how much interest soccer in Australia has, playing in winter.

Bruce Djite: "The immediate future of Australian football is precarious"

Can players still use sand paper to shine the ball. LOL

COVID guidelines to alter cricket customs

IF A=League is played behind closed doors what difference will it matter. TV coverage will still be the same. Very few spectators in the background.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

Professional? Not

Spurs and England defender shockingly storms the stands to confront fan after FA Cup loss

Was in the UK for the 2012 Olympics. Was on several channels of the BBC. Every sport was covered and many didn’t have a UK representative. Unbiased coverage unlike Ch 7. Also no ad breaks

Which sports are dying in Australia?

Soccer may have large number at very junior levels but is not holding true for higher levels. Many kids drop out of soccer like many other sorts at 16/20 as relationships come around, jobs and possible uni or tafe studies get in the way. Many kids then return to AFL

No consideration to playing elsewhere untill other states have a stadium capable of holding 100,000 people. Only the MCG has that capacity.

No night grand final for AFL in 2020

Contracted to the MCG for many years. Most of us on here will be pushing up roses before that happens. There will be an AFL side in Tasmania, and a third side in Adelaide before that

No night grand final for AFL in 2020

Nemo goes on about a fan survey, but as usual fails to produce any proof.

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

” fudging participation numbers to try and get AIS funding; paying local councils under the table to quarantine suburban grounds so only Aussie Rules can be played on them”
Unless you can back up this statement with a link then this is fake news.

Yep we know how important the problems of soccer around the world is to Australia. That’s why it’s not of interest here.

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

AFL doesnt need to compete on a world stage, Our competition does well on it’s own. Who wants the problems that soccer has globally?

The code wars are here, so let's have at it

“Matildas have been playing in front of 20k plus crowds” An international side. AFLW crowds are upwards of 25,000and they are only a domestic code.

This journey has been going on since the end of the 2nd world war when eastern Europeans came out to Australia. Didnt make any difference to the game. Same in the 1960’s with the 10 pound poms. Same result. Restructure the game 15 years back. Same result.

Where to next for football in Australia?

BBL crowds are down,so where did they go? Not to soccer

Where to next for football in Australia?

They went to the AFLW instead.

Te A League needs not only a reset but a change in public relations. We all know about the terrible bush fires in the eastern states and the closure of the Eyre highway in WA. The big sports in Australia have rallied around to raise funds. AFL with it’s state of origin match, cricket with it’s yet to be played match,tennis in Sydney last week featuring some of the worlds best. NRL also doing it’s bit. But where was soccer? Conspicuous by its absence. No charity matches.

The Wanderers need a reset - and so does the rest of the A-League

AA agree. We would then finish up with what they have in the UK premier league. The same clubs at the top. The same old boring competition year in and year out.

The Wanderers need a reset - and so does the rest of the A-League

The goal is normally the only bright point of the match

A-League wrap-up Round 11

There is usually some excuse as to why attendances are low. AFL, Melbourne Racing (spring carnival) NRL.National Oxcart championships. You name it all sorts of reasons. But for 6 weeks. Not just one week, but a trend is developing. Maybe if the tickets were given away??

The Melbourne derby showcased the best and worst of the A-League

“This might just be plain daft” Yes it’s daft

Are we too scared of opinions in the A-League?

No advert for a follow up test in Perth if today’s attendance is anything to go by. 6,000?

Why can’t Perth hold the Boxing Day Test?
