Is this D-Day for the A-League?

Why were my posts deleted? What a joke,

Is this D-Day for the A-League?

Agree, I doubt we will see Majewski this season, from the rumours, but Meier I am very keen to see, and so happy to be back in Parramatta.

Victory are a big unknown, such an important season for them, this transition will set the club on a new path I think. Melbourne City has to do something this year.
Brisbane? Not sure, I think middle of the pack, (which is good) give Robbie a year and then he can make a run.

Allies, Churchill’s famous words of fighting them on the beaches is in clear reference to A League both playing in the Summer and the fact that we also have beach football as a thing . 😁

Perhaps Johan and Bilbo are one in the same, Mr AFL has form on that trick.

And yes I am back, I’ve stayed away because of the crap like Bilbo and Johan, it just gets frustrating characters like that need to denigrate another sport to get their jollies.

Is this D-Day for the A-League?

Wrong, on a number of fronts.

Baumjohan was taught his trade at Bayern Munich, hardly a lower division club. Players shine and fail in leagues all over the world based on a variety of factors, club structure, team dynamics coaches philosophies. The article isn’t about ‘top divisions’ which if you ask me only exist in 4 places (I believe Serie A have regained their place in top 4 ) this article is looking at League One and Two, now if you think that the a league doesn’t rate against those two then I think you are drunk and probably need to go home.

I am tired of people who watch 2 minute highlights from other leagues and say that is the quality of the whole game/league. It bloody well isn’t. Watch some full games between Grimsby Town and Cambridge United, I dare you.

Why do fans compare the A-League to England's lower leagues?

Great read and your passion and joy is evident

What the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup - and everything before it - means to me

Maybe Goodes

Will an independent A-League actually work?

the 2017 report indicates that 60% of UK Households have PayTV (not streaming services), so at least twice as many as in Australia, in my mind that makes the Lioness figures very impressive

Finally, football is becoming everyone's game

Then why are you here? Go watch your so called best athletes, it’s a pretty shallow gene pool but go knock yourself out

would love to see the Venn

Rapinoe vs Trump: Disrespectful or inspiring activism?

Why? I value you his contribution, I agree with him as to wonder why so many people that don’t think much of the A league specifically and to some extent Football in general spend an disproportionate time on here. I spend zero time on the NRL page because I have no care for it.

When Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup beating the best team in the NHL (The Canucks) the goal tender at the time Tim Thomas refused to go to the White House because Obama was in office. As far as I know the Philadelphia Eagles NFL team has refused to attend as well, as many NBA teams. But I guess as Rapinoe is a female and shock horror an advocate for the Queer community she is evil personified for the cowards of the right wing.

Rapinoe vs Trump: Disrespectful or inspiring activism?

If they are good enough they will stay up. If Perth/Adelaide/Brisbane with their multi million $ owners and cities of millions of people don’t put a good enough side together that they can’t beat Mr Druitt Rangers then should they be playing in the top league?

An independent A-League: Who will the casualties be?

Funny the only think I watch on my Foxtel Sports package is Football, if Foxtel didn’t have the A league I wouldn’t have it. Not just the sports, I wouldn’t have Foxtel period.

An independent A-League: Who will the casualties be?

Declined? LOL you have no idea what so ever. The Matilada’s captain just slotted a match winning hat trick for her Club Side in the US, that same person is rumoured to be a transfer target for Chelsea where she could earn more than the entire AFLW player contract, so yea she is really coming to the AFLW shortly.

An independent A-League: Who will the casualties be?

And as a Vancouver Canucks fan i have seen plenty of videos of the team kicking a football (soccer) around the dressing sheds and hallways of the ice rink. So I suppose all those professional hockey players prefer football?

An independent A-League: Who will the casualties be?

you equate two players outside as being a reason to keep the salary cap, if that was the case I’m certain the owners of football clubs all over the world would jump at the chance of only needing two stars and 82% of the team as donkeys. Of course that is not true.

Removing the Salary cap has numerous benefits past what you pay a player. It allows players to be signed to longer contracts as their is no risk to club if the player doesn’t perform to expectations they can simply be terminated without a penalty to the club. Youth players can be signed to longer contracts developed, again with limited risk to clubs. It also means you are less likely to require 1 superstar recruit, you ca actually set a team up to be more balanced across the park, it also encourages different tactics.

No Salary cap doesn’t mean low paying teams will always be at a disadvantage, like with anything clubs will find what works for them.

Will an independent A-League actually work?

No of course it wont work, the existing owners and executives of the game have decided after sinking hundreds of millions of $ that they will decide to do something that will destroy the game, as Nemisis said, what a stupid question

Will an independent A-League actually work?

That is assuming there are only 16 talented Under 12 juniors in Western Sydney on any year, alternatively that is only assuming that there are less than 4 talented Attacking midfielders (assuming teams may sometimes use a 10 in an 8, 7 or 11 or even 9 role) the answer is of course not, the fact that Wanderers now exists does not diminish the Mariners opportunity from Western Sydney, a 12 year old entering an A league Academy is not a finished product, if the Mariners Academy is better at turning out a finished product it doesn’t matter if Wanderers exist or not. You are making a bad assumption.

An independent A-League: Who will the casualties be?

Yea but that was before The Wanderers, no more poaching Western Sydney talent LOL

But both of you are spot on the money, and non-football people don’t get the massive opportunity that developing youth can have. I would argue that this one area where Victory has not developed, will be interesting how quickly they can catch up.

FFA reaches in-principle agreement for independent A-League

Really good news, and I have to say I am very happy my club has taken a long range view and will ultimately benefit from this. With the eventual dismantling of the salary cap and introduction of transfer fees, the long term investment of the Wanderers training facility will pay big dividends.

BTW My Football, you are wrong about the demise of Mariners, they have a good youth program up there, the CoE and the Football School. They have a big opportunity to actually leverage the new arrangement. They just need to be very smart about it.

appears one can not criticise poor excuses for writers.

So the people on here saying we wouldn’t get out of the group stage? Clearly they didn’t have a clue to start with and now how do they feel?

Stuart. sorry on this one you are very wrong, not just a little wrong but calling an elephant a type of fish wrong
