He Meier was a lot better this last game against Victory, could you have scored that goal Buddy or even hit that one that was disallowed.

Waz, ironic a BR fan complaining about an age of a player.

Geelong is already home to the A-League's best player

Josh, maybe you should give our AFL friends some insights about the impact GWS had in Western Sydney in making the Grand Final in the biggest sport in Melbourne. I know elsewhere in Sydney it didn’t make a ripple.

Yes Chris, these poor AFL fans, no AFL for another 6 months anywhere in the world, hence they get lost in the football tab.

Dear A-League fans, it's time to take off the rose-coloured glasses

Yes how football are struggling, even in the women’s game. I wonder if Caitlin watching this game. 90K sold out game for women’s football & all paying customers too.

Dear A-League fans, it's time to take off the rose-coloured glasses

Amazing how a sport can struggle when it’s by far the most played & spectator sport in the world by a long long way.

Yes 2006 was the golden generation, we have no Kewell, no Viduka & definitely Milligan now is no Grella, however outside of that I don’t see too much difference. Only difference is the likes of what we had in 2006 was very prominent in 2006 the more robust, athletic game that the Socceroos played. Now most teams are more professional & are athletic, but now we have to rely on skills to break defences & we lack those types of players both today & in 2006 outside of Kewell & Dukes.

Takeaways from Australia's win over Taiwan

Lets just remember, this is one person’s opinion & football is by far the most spectator sport in the world by quite a fair distance.

Lionheart, another good hit out by Hrustic, showing something different.

The more articles written by the author the better as it shows the fear is still out there.

I could not imagine me ever writing an article so negative, whether I love, hate or indifferent to the game.
How someone would spend the time to write this is beyond me.

I just watched Waz, thanks, I’m a Derby fan thanks to Brian Clough.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

Oh Cloughie, What the A-League would give for a Brian ‘I wouldn’t say I’m the best manager around, but I’d be in the top 1’ Clough.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

That was an impressive celebration, bring it on.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

This is where they are going wrong, if it’s goal line or offside, it’s black & white.
If it’s not ‘clear & obvious’ & now depends on opinions, then if not clear after 2-3 quick replays stay with ref’s call. We only want the clear & obvious ones picked up.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

Good summary Fad, I thought the WU imports looked good especially Diamanti & Jerjec, remembering Castro is pretty old & he handles himself quite well.
I too love the young Aussies coming thru.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

Yes Griffo, I thought it was great to see Ikonomidis take on the players. We don’t have a lot of those type of players.

VAR has changed football, but we only have ourselves to blame

Think because the linesman called it offside.

Massive late drama as the VAR awards the Roar a last-minute equaliser

Apart from Brattan for Brillante change, we had 2 of our fullbacks missing & a new centre back combination.

Glass half full for Victory, City coaches

I totally agree, I too don’t like the the way they use the VAR, but all 3 decisions that went to VAR, the correct decision was made.

Reds boss slams VAR

I truly don’t understand how people wouldn’t be anything but an optimist.

Life feels so much better now that the football is back

Well old chap, I think the Australian peeps you hang around without have no idea, as the Socceroos were very poor. However, at least they get to play opposition from around the world. Some sports their biggest/highest honour is winning a suburbian competition, with no international competition known to man, so we should always look on the bright side.

Life feels so much better now that the football is back

At last the football starts in Australia.

Life feels so much better now that the football is back

It’s the table that matters
16/17 SFC ahead of MV by 17 pts
17/18 SFC ahead of MV by 23 pts
18/19 SFC had a dreadful year & was in transition & MV were much stronger with Honda & Ola were only ahead by 2pts.

Melbourne derby to provide early glimpse of title credentials

Johan, it’s you who we will ignore. If you don’t like the A-league that’s fine, just go away.

Is this D-Day for the A-League?

Thanks Sturat, great list & great that you are talking players or football, this is what the Roar needs, more articles like this.
Looking forward to all the players on this list & other young players. The one I have seen close up a bit is Ivanovic, he looks like he does have something, but as Nemesis says, they need that thirst, the want.
Looking forward to the start of the season.

Six young Australians ready for an A-League explosion

I agree this comment is so wrong. Kangas even mentions ‘riches by playing rugby in Australia or Europe’, well there is greater riches in football that any football code in Australia or cricket can ever dream of. So not sure why the top athletes would not pick football.

The newly independent A-League failed its first test
