Look at last 2 games at home against Brisbane Roar & then MacArthur, it was finishing that let us down, we really miss a La Fondre.

No more excuses - it’s time to talk about the A-League ladder

Not disagreeing that there style has not been replaced, but Brattan is a different type of player & same with Nieuwenhof, it’s about adapting.
Same issue as in Liverpool you have the bash brothers of ‘Henderson, Fabinho, Milner & Wijnaidum, none of these go close to Thiago Alcantara skill, but Liverpool struggling to adapt.
However Brattan, like Alcantara, gives so much more in attack then O’Neill or Brillante, who were both very limited players.

I’d like a little wager on you in regards to SFC not making the top 6. Too much class.
100% agree on Le Fondre, we don’t have a decent scorer. But when Bobo gets fit, Ninko & Baumjohan will put it on a plate for him that even his old legs can’t help but score.

As for O’Neill, easily replaced by Bratten & young Nieuwenhof.

Hi JB, yes we are creating, in Ninko, Baumjohan & Caceres, we have 3 of the most creative players in the A-League, we are creating chances, however we have Barbaroosas (can be hot & cold & very cold this year), Bobo (his best days a long time ago), Buhagair (all speed & not much else), how many of these types of players does Australia keeps producing & Patrick Wood (very very raw). We cannot score goals, if we still had La Fondre, we’d be up there.

Amazing A-League must bring fans back into stadiums

The SFC of 2016-17 & 2017-2018 was pretty special with players like Ninko, Bobo, Mierzejewski, Grant, Wilkinson, Brosque, O’Neill, Brillante, they were very good players & team. Let’s not forget Danny Vukovic, who probably gave the best season performance by a GK in 2016/17.
Players like Ninko, only Broich matches him & Miezejewski, only one season but what a season.

AA, it would help if you checked facts first, doesn’t look like triple to me.

Brisbane 2,430,180
Perth 2,045,479
Adelaide 1,340,794

Amazing A-League must bring fans back into stadiums

JB,

When we were in Sydney Football ground, we sat in bay that maybe I knew 30-35 people that I knew. Since the pandemic, about 5 are going, why because there is a pandemic, some aren’t comfortable going.
You need to look at the whole picture, not part of it.

Now, now, love!!!!

Ode to Rhyan Grant: The homespun hero

Exactly, while I’m all for promoting youth & giving them a chance instead of recycled journeymen, I think view from some posters that all players above 25 years old are no good, ummmmm.

Ode to Rhyan Grant: The homespun hero

Neither does Japan, Korea, Italy, Russia or USA.
Some of them are footballing countries, some have far bigger populations then Australia, some spend a lot of government monies on their National teams because they understand the prestige of having a top class football team, some of them don’t have 2 other football codes dominating the local scene.

Comprende.

Love the Rhino, go you good thing, always gives 110%.

Ode to Rhyan Grant: The homespun hero

At least we compete against other nations unlike some other big football codes we like to play in Australia.

No doubt.

The GOAT: Who really is the greatest athlete of our generation?

Very very sad story how they have treated Peter Norman is Australia’s sporting history. It was a national disgrace.

The GOAT: Who really is the greatest athlete of our generation?

JB, cannot disagree with you there SFC sparked into life when these 3 came on in the last 30 minutes.

The only reason I can see was that they had a game 3 days later, last night in Melbourne & he was trying to save some old legs.

How bad are Melbourne Victory? How good is Jamie Young?

I think Ronaldo & Messi would better known to more humans then all those mentioned.

The GOAT: Who really is the greatest athlete of our generation?

We did get 1 goal in our 4-1 lost to your women’s team. Both of us are flying high.
I was going to watch the SFC women play on Sunday as they were 10 mins from house playing on the Northern beaches, but alas after 6 hours of Juniors grading I was roasted.

How bad are Melbourne Victory? How good is Jamie Young?

It has been an unconvincing display by SFC, but A great display from Jamie Young & Peter Crossbar stopped what should have been a unconvincing 3 nil win @ Kogarah oval on Sat night.

I present you with Scott McDonald with 5 minutes left in the game, playing for time.

VAR technology is the worst thing to ever happen to football

You have brought up 2 issues, the way VAR is used for Clear & Obvious & the 2nd the Refereeing standard.

This is how I saw both issue from the 3 penalties on Friday night.

1st penalty, not clear & Obvious error, Ref call. Absolutely poor refereeing. Just very poor. This was subjective.
2nd Penalty, not clear & obvious error, ref call. While not as bad as first one, poor refereeing
3nd penalty, hand ball not clear, again not clear & obvious error, ref call, no issues on this one with referee.

VAR technology is the worst thing to ever happen to football

It’s not always I say I agree with the Dr, however, this time I do. VAR is not the problem but the interpretation

The use of the VAR is to get rid of the horrible decisions, we should not have multiple views, if it’s not a clear & obvious error go with Ref call.

I’m sure AA is Diego Simone in disguise.

VAR blunders produce yet another A-League comedy act

How good was Kuol’s goal. What a player.

Chris you have got to be joking, Immobile, Chiesa, Jorginho better then Son.
My point is simple, there is no player playing for Italy in Son’s class, a sth Korean, now imagine saying that at any time pre 2010 that an asian player is better then anyone from Italy.
My 2nd point is the times are a changing, the days that the big countries of Europe and Sth America having all the best players are not as common as it once was.

Has the A-League finally converted the 'Bring back the NSL' crowd?

You really sound like you on a agenda. Not looking at the whole picture.
