Oh no worries, the scenes were amazing, it was front page of every newspaper, all the media, but the talk afterwards was not huge in the community, pubs, cafes, clubs, work etc.

The Socceroos have just reminded Australia of how much we love them

Like I said you learn something new everyday.

Had a lovely holiday in Northern Territory last month, lovely part of the world, surprised how much they into AFL. Advertisement everywhere, TV in pubs & clubs all had the footy on, those funny 4 post with no crossbars, on all the ovals kids hand balling the footy past shoppers in shopping centres.

You just don’t see that in Sydney, very rare those 4 posts with no crossbars.
More people talking about the Grey wiggle then Big Buddy’s 1000th goal in the pubs & cafes in Sydney.

‘Everyone on this tab’ now are you sure everyone?

Daughters playing AFL in Sydney. Well I learn something new everyday.

FF, you will never convince him, he’s been on the football tab for years bringing these same boring arguments.

'Who are these blokes?' Hopefully, Will Swanton now knows a few World Cup-bound Socceroos

Oh Yes 100%, while we perceive some of the Middle Eastern countries & the likes of China as divers, we are perceived as bullies & pushing the limit in tackles, so yes we should be aware that the refs also think think this way.

I’m a big fan of Arnie from his days at SFC, but you are right, he is a great front runner, or when you have better team, as seen with the unbeaten run early in campaign.
But when chips are down or playing a better team & you have to out smart your opposing coach, Arnie is bereft of ideas, he doesn’t have the ability or even maybe coaching courage to change things around.

Gosh LH, you must be tired. I watched the U23s this morning after the Socceroos game.
Very soft red in the U23s.

Yes the performance today was a lot better than recent results, especially the attack, we were creating, but yes Peru is another level or 3 above UAE.

Cracking gaol by Hrustic, he’s got great technique in that left foot.

I have always had a good laugh at the assumption mainly coming from a few Melbournites.

The A-League Men grand final was not a big event, but that’s okay

I watch Channel ten on streaming, either on my TV, or my computer or my phone depending where I am & I don’t think I’m the only one.
Just think how many would turn up watch the other code in Spain if Richmond played a Spanish Allstars AFL team in Madrid.
It’s all swings and roundabouts AFL is huge in Melbourne, but only place in the world you would get anything more then 60K into a stadium.

I have an English wife, so have 4 brothers in-law, we banter about Football, Cricket & Rugby. The banter is great during Rugby world cups & the Ashes (not a one dayers man), but Football we fair way behind the English.

Socceroos shocker: Star midfielder Tom Rogic pulls out of World Cup qualifier

Fully understand, but the fact that when the Socceroos qualified in 2005 for the first time in 32 years was a bigger sporting occasion than the wallabies winning the world cup, shows that while both the 100 metres athletics & pistol shooting are in the Olympics, some are just deemed bigger events.
The Rugby World cup doesn’t even go close to THE World Cup & I’ve been to both.

Socceroos shocker: Star midfielder Tom Rogic pulls out of World Cup qualifier

As a Football fan first but also a Rugby fan, I prefer those with an International flavour to flourish over the more traditional sports in Australia with no or next to no international flavour.

There was 80K odd for another code that only 2 other cities in world could (don’t because they don’t have a stadium) pull similar crowds, so not worried there.

FTA was 119K, I’m an old man, but even I don’t watch FTA TV, I stream everything, so perhaps not fewer people watched GF then 1st season. They don’t count the numerous people watching it on other streaming services.

JB, Barca’s 17 year old is Gavi, together with another young player called Pedri, both have already represented Spain at the highest level are the new Xavi & Inesita, huge wraps in Spain on these players, throw is Fati & in years to come people may be comparing Gavi, Pedri & Fati as potent as Xavi, Inesita & Messi.

No issues if that is what you call it, just don’t tell me what I can call it.

I’m nor singling out African teenagers, I’m interested in all the young Aussie players, especially after his performance last night, I fully understand it was a friendly.
Unfortunately Dennis Law or Duncan Edwards are not Aussies, despite their natural talent at a young age.
Yep the electronic gadgetry has huge affects to a non footballing country like ours.

Thanks always appreciate your input especially on the young players in this country.

What does that even mean?

TSS,

Love your input (I think you may have already done this) on Kuol & some of the other young African players coming thru, who do you think has the most potential?

Teenage sensations star as A-League All Stars give Barcelona almighty fright

I must admit though Kuol was very good. Plus another 16 year old on the park.

This is the same confusion some AFL fans like Nomates have, they think A-League is football because AFL is AFL, nothing more.
Football is so much more then A-League, even in this country.

Clive has money to burn, he just spent $100M on an election & got nothing, another replica of the Titanic maybe.

Sydney is way too lucky when it comes to public funding for football stadiums

Great great swimmer.
