I’m a big fan of Ellie, having her on the right also allows Kerr to play a little closer infield, as Ellie has great attacking instincts, a good motor which allows her to get up and around the outside of Kerr

Matildas eviscerate Chile in Newcastle rematch

Mr AFL

Short memory, the Matilda’s beat Brazil 6-1 in the tournament of nations in 2017, at the time Australia was 7 and Brazil 8. So I think you are being hard on Chile there. Kanga I thought summarised it well, they just played out of there skins for 135 minutes,

So who do you lace your boots up for? Let us know we can arrange someone to come down and watch you, we’ll make sure to post some constructive criticisms.

Are you a rookie? This is Australian Football, we never get good world cup draws. LOL

I don’t know why he didn’t just allow them to use tap n go……

English referee suspended after using scissor-paper-rock instead of coin toss

Unlike Europe, where Germany did bomb civilian targets, outside of China the Japanese didn’t really target civilian installations, Pearl Harbor was Navy, Sydney Harbor were Naval ships, Darwin is probably an exception but it did target military installations.

So the firebombing of Tokyo, and the Atomic bombs in which civilians were expected to perish should never be celebrated.

17,500 Londoners died during WW2 from German bombing over 5 years. As noted above the civilian death toll in Nagasaki exceeded that with 1 bomb……

Six talking points from A-League Round 4

The draw between the Swiss and the Dutch was good news for the Matilda’s, hopefully it keeps them at 6 in the rankings and gets the seeded in the draw.

Great game last night (as was Saturday) great support, Saturday may have been the game that the Matildas needed. It looks like it taught them a few lessons. The old saying works, we never lose, we either win or learn.
Well done Foord, and well done Ellie, the maturity for a girl that is still just 18 yrs old is amazing.

So I wonder which multi you belong to

An A-League match in Mudgee is the perfect addition to Remembrance Round

You mean like how you tube is showing the games in Japan and other countries where there are no broadcast agreements?

The $100 M, not sre how close we got, but when you add A League, Socceroos, International Broadcast and ACL matches, I wonder what it would be?

Have we already determined this season's A-League pretenders?

Mike

Is he wrong though? My thoughts were similar in that Wanderers were written off before the season started, even the coach used those comments during interviews. “We are the worst club in the league” Now all of a sudden we might not be as bad as the ‘experts’ thought? Maybe 3 games is just not enough to decide. What happens if Le Fondre goes down, or even if he gets shaky boots and the goals dry up, where will the goals come from? After all these are all questions asked of other clubs?

I ask again was Nemesis actually wrong?

Have we already determined this season's A-League pretenders?

Maybe write better? Just an example of what you could do with the feedback. Example for me “The quality of Australia’s competition won’t rival any European league, ….” rather a definitive statement don’t you think, the quality wont rival ANY European League, pretty certain the Maltese League qualifies as European, now I haven’t watched any of the league, have you? But I would be surprised if your A League wasn’t of higher quality.

Just a simple example where you might improve, understanding that words have meanings

Six talking points from A-League Round 3

A great comment, one that should live on for a while I hope

Six talking points from A-League Round 3

If the comment is about Football, then I am all for robust debate, the issue is Mr AFL isn’t interested in discussing football, his one sole job appears to be derail discussions on football and highlight crowd numbers or TV viewers. It is an attempt by him in some passive aggressive fashion to try and claim AFL superiority. Now happy for him to do that to his hearts content on the AFL tab, he can post Football figures to his fingers bleed, I couldn’t care less. But when he comes to a football tab and all he is interested in is derailing posts with one agenda then I will say something.

Have you ever seen him post comments on games? You know actual thoughtful comments, suggesting he has actually watched games and not just goal highlights on the news?

Let's all calm down, stop complaining and enjoy Round 3

I was the one who asked for it, happy to put my hand up and say it was me who flagged it with the mod. I am tired of Mr AFL offering nothing football wise on this site. He is only interested in 1 thing and that is to put football down. If he wants to discuss actual football then it is all well and good. But I am tired of this passive aggressive talk looking to steer conversations away to try and tell football of it’s place in Australia

Let's all calm down, stop complaining and enjoy Round 3

Don’t like it? There’s the door mate. You have been told enough times we are not interested in your passive aggressive attacks on Football. You are obsessed with crowds and TV, you hardly if ever talk about actual football games.
So if you are not happy stay off this forum and stick to your AFL

Let's all calm down, stop complaining and enjoy Round 3

How do you claim they are second best? It is one thing to say they didn’t score enough goals, but when goal(s) are scored and then reviewed and taken away for 1 teams, are not reviewed despite a trip of the attacking player on the penalty box line. So I am sorry when 2 goals are denied by poor officiating then to claim a team is second best smacks of hypocrisy

The Sydney aftermath: Do we need a VAR fair usage policy?

Because it is 1 paragraph (plus 2 lines) in a post that has about 20 paragraphs, the whole theme of the thread is about the FOOTBALL not about the periphery. Yet as always you only want to talk about crowds and TV viewers, to get your passive aggressive digs in.
We all know you have no interest in the football this is just where you hang out over your AFL off season. It is obvious to all.

So

Let's all calm down, stop complaining and enjoy Round 3

This post hasn’t aged well lol

Are derby chants just in jest?

James, sorry mate but you guys are East Sydney, look at you emblem, look at your banners. They are Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge , unless it is the Peter Warren replica at Liverpool, then everything about the club, the stadium the HQ are all built around the Eastern Part of Sydney.

You may like to think you are for ALL of SYDNEY, but when it comes down to it as Ida put it so well, the West of Sydney are scum to you.
The fact is us Western Sydney Scum are the ones that built this city, my dad laid the water and gas pipes, my Uncles built the roads and the Tunnels, others built the trains and the cars and the boats.
These days might be a little different but to many in the east, we are still western sydney scum

Are derby chants just in jest?

Go away, either talk about football or go away, simple as that Mr AFL

Let's all calm down, stop complaining and enjoy Round 3

You seem obsessed with crowds and viewers, and virtually mute on any actual thoughts on games, I wonder why?

On my twitter feed today they were saying ratings are being masked because of people using online viewing. The expectation is the net total isn’t lower just a different platform.

I guess that doesn’t suit your narrative

Six talking points from A-League Round 2

by all accounts he also told the players on the field it was a foul, so it wasn’t confusion in the heat of the moment.

VAR: Very appalling results

No they don’t, watch the first goal in the Derby

VAR: Very appalling results

Nem, sorry you are wrong, the AR doesn’t flag the offside all the time, they only flag it when the player becomes involved in the play. You see it every game, a player offside but makes no attempt to play the ball, even when they are near the ball the AR only flags it when they become involved. Sorry you are wrong

The A-League's constant VAR debates are detracting from the football

You are assuming the AR missed it, he was about 15 meters away, that is a big assumption. Maybe he like any reasonable person adjudged (like he is supposed to) Sotirio was not in play therefore no need to raise the flag
