The most most playing football code is soccer in this country by a fair mile.

Confirmed: David Gallop stepping down as FFA CEO

Don’t let him upset you Waz, he is the son of Immigrants who sold his heritage out for AFL, give him a break, he’s confused.

Amazing the son of immigrants, where is was football first,second & third, who sold himself to AFL.
Last week he was banking on the Matildas to take football out of it’s doldrums is now hailing Gallop for his great achievements during his reign.

Talking about mix messages.

Yes LH, there is no big club in Australia from a global view, but we are talking clubs in Australia.

Are Sydney FC just trying to annoy their A-League opposition?

Nemesis, count the trophies they are equal.
You can go on about doubles etc & I can go on about SFC only team to win Premiership or championship 3 years running.

Biggest club, love to see the true definition of biggest club.
Some might say Melb City because they have the most money, but Melb Victory says look at their silverware.
Some might say WSW, because of the potential of their fans, Melb Victory says their fans right up there.
Some might say SFC, they are the most successful & no-one is living with them these last 3 years in terms of Silverware. Melb Victory says we have better admin & fans.

Melbourne victory is the envy of the league no doubt, very strong administration, great fan base & been as successful as SFC in the history of the A-League.

Long may the discussion continue.

You may want to define class, the Chelsea teams when he won there early on had a lot of class, the Real Madrid sides were also pretty classy, they did come up against the best club side ever in the Messi, Xavi & Inesita led Barcelona sides. He won Champions league with Porto & Inter Milan with lesser sides then others in that competition.
It was his last year with Chelsea & then Man U that they played dreadful football.

The Americans are rude, loud, arrogant... and winners

1. The talent pool would be bigger
2. Yes being a sport loving country, it would get more space & more importantly money (via government. TV & sponsorship).

So having no NRL or AFL would improve this.

But the issue is clearly, we do not produce quality players with our infrastructure, maybe it’s getting better but the rest of the world are shooting ahead. We need better players with a better first touch where we can transition the ball from defence to attack quickly. We have more possession but we do little with it.

The FFA failed the Matildas, now the clubs must do better

The good thing about the VAR, is that it’s no longer just an A-League issue anymore.
There are errors made over & over again.
Many decisions are subjective & these subjective decisions has always been made by the officials on the field & they should remain so, so we can forever argue about it.
The use of should only be used to clear up clear & obvious errors otherwise it’s referees/linesmen decisions.

Matildas World Cup campaign leaves us wondering 'what if?'

The best way to view this Waz, is to put yourself in the other teams shoes, if that was a player from Norway, I’d be screaming send off, straight red.

Did the refs rob the Matildas against Norway?

How big will that be England v Australia in the 1/4s, my English family facebook won’t know what would hit them.

The Matildas are making football fun again

Yes I know you have been calling this out for a awhile now in your posts, I don’t watch as much W league as you do & always interested in your comments about the women’s game.

I was amazed how much my girls were into the World cup, these are not elite girls, AL3s, they are actually all mums enjoying football late in their lifes, but they are totally absorbed by it & the first ten or so minutes at training, was not about their families or anything else it was all football.
They love Elle Carpenter (of course Sam as well).

Amazing!!!!

And yet they collect so much money from fees.

Great reply Chris.

LH, I coach a women’s team & they were all collectively saying the same think about Van Egmond, thought she was very poor.

Sheek, I think you have read it pretty correctly.

Sam Kerr hits Jamaica for four, as Matildas progress to Round of 16 at World Cup

Yeah Croatia were easybeats, just like they were when they made WC final 2 years later!!!!

Is Lionel Messi as good as we think he is?

Have you seen Rocketman yet Kangas? Good movie about the great man.

Sam Kerr can say whatever she damn well likes

Yes, it would be like me discussing some Rugby player to you Jordan.
I have no interest in AFL & know very little of their players.

Who is Daniel’s sister? Who is Daniel?

Gloria, you are a football fan, but you say, who cares?

LH, I would never miss a SOO & used to believe Rabbits when he made those comments.
In 1999 I was in England & just watched Man United (not a MU fan) win in what was the most amazing last minute(s) of the champions league final beating Bayern Munich 2-1.
After the game, I was on this huge high & suddenly a replay of the SOO came on (I had not known the score, before internet, maybe). I watched the the first 10-20 minutes, it just had not the same feeling anymore.
Funny most of England (apart from Man U fans) were going Bayern. A couple weeks later I was in Germany & my brother in law living there said most Germans were going for Man U.

I never watched the SOO the same anymore. These days I’m normally training on a Wednesday.

What if we had State of Origin in football?

Fair enough!!!

What if we had State of Origin in football?

Nem, it’s a bit of fun, chill out!!!!

Jack, do yourselve a favour, get a clip of Messi 08-13 & look at the difference now, not just in style but in position too. Barcelona are much more direct now, less tika taka.
