Another great read Stuart.

Football in Australia continues its rocky road. Is there ever smooth sailing to be had for the world game on this continent?

Foxtel’s financial problems will change the way football is viewed in Australia

Great read Stuart.

Thought provoking as always.

Wayne Bennett lied to us, signed James Roberts and then got pants'd by the Eels on Friday night

Thank you for the following Jordan.

Ten talking points from 2018-19 A-League grand final

I love the responses.

But understand the material you’re responding to. I just want more people to enjoy the game. Meanwhile, your trying to start an unnecessary disagreement with someone who should be on your side.
Equally, you’re right. You’re responding to a blog. You too can’t be upset if someone calls you out on the manner. It works both ways.

Anyway, this has really run its course. We’ve generally found more common ground today than usual.

Six talking points from A-League finals: Week 1

I don’t recall people complaining about the atmosphere at the Grand final Adelaide hosted.

Nemesis, you’ve got a bit of the pugilist about you, which is fine. You need to direct it carefully though. So I would like 50,000 people attending home and away fixtures regularly. I didn’t realise wanting more spectators and viewers meant I don’t like football in this country.

That’s on me I guess.

I was wondering what took this comment so long to arrive.

I have high hopes for the A League. So sue me.

I don’t get why it has to be such a secret.

The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if old media (i.e. tv, pay-tv) don’t want online viewing numbers aired publicly.

I agree Mike. I think perhaps a Saturday game in Adelaide might have been smarter?

Either way, the 13,000 is a good crowd. I just have high expectations. I think the Reds should be selling out the Adelaide Oval every home game.

The streaming viewing figures issue has really gnawed at me this season. Surely there must be a way to measure who is watching through the football app and Kayo.

If there are that many people watching online, and I don’t know whether there are or not, surely the FFA would want to spruik those figures.

Good pick up Jordan. I wasn’t sure myself at time of writing. The frantic finish to the Reds game had me at all sorts.

Fair question Romano.

To be honest, not sure whether that would be a help or a hindrance.

The Friday night final ratings were a disaster MF.

They’ll be getting a mention in the week 1 finals talking points.

Six talking points from A-League Round 27

I came across some of it on the ABC over the weekend Waz. There was some online annoyance as well.

One of your finest Joe. Spot on.

Time for Penrith to make it without their dad

Fair play to you Josh. I hadn’t thought of it from that perspective.

Six talking points from A-League Round 25

I was thinking about this recently.

The only thing I could of was the opening of Stadium Australia for the FIFA All Stars game against the Socceroos in 1999.

Definitely not saying Poppa would send Stajcic a written report Jordan, but I wouldn’t advise Alen against taking into consideration some of Poppa’s methods.

Fair play Nemesis.

Upon reflection, maybe I’m being overly harsh on the international break, and moreso realising I actually do just love the A-League. I think about it, I found myself missing it when it wasn’t on last weekend.

Six talking points from A-League Round 23

Wanderers beat a top six opponent, something they’ve struggled to do this season. I call that sufficing the allowable description of being “rare.”

Fair points raised.

On Joyce, why is City Group so staunchly backing this guy? As you say, there are far better candidates, and the public relations nightmares he has caused alone you would think would have him removed. Regardless of results.

Agree the Zelic goal was better. It just brought back memories of it.

Maybe if you read the talking point properly, rather than mis-interpreting it to suite your criticism. I literally said: “I’m not blaming the FFA for doing the right thing.”

It is more than fair enough to say that the international break, which a large portion of domestic league loving fans around the world hate, was no particular fun given the lack of socceroos and no A-League.

And I am, as Jordan pointed out, far from an expert. Just airing an opinion.

Your critique is normally better than this Nemesis.

Thanks for the follow BD.

Thanks Nemesis.

Looking forward to your thoughts on my other five talking points.

That ends my contribution then.

Comments like that are just trying to antagonise.

Cheers son.
