BTW Jordan, congratulations, must be over the moon. Best team by far & so deserved.

A grand final at Optus Stadium in Perth is exactly what the A-League needs

In discussions with Mister Football, facts are not required, just sweeping agenda driven statements.

No doubt but they were 21 pts behind the National Premiers.

Be interesting when we go down to only 1 direct entry to ACL & the champions don’t get it to see some like you flapping about.

Perth Glory has already won the biggest prize this year.

For 2nd prize though.

That would be a considerable achievement considering the AFL discovered women’s sport.

Exactly. Congratulations on Perth Glory on being the premiership winners, best & most consistent team all year & deservedly wins the A-League.
Now bring on the Knockout finals competition. Hoping SFC gets up, but this season even if we win the GF, we are not the best team in the competition, the best team of the year has been decided.

But enough money to buy the best players in the world to win the premier RL competition, work that out.

Do the Western Sydney Wanderers still have fans?

Exactly!!!! As I said in my post, how do you define a big club, attendances only?
You can compare the Sydney Roosters to Sydney Swans, both heartland in Eastern suburbs, one Roosters has poor average attendances, other Swans have fairly strong average attendances. Who would be the bigger brand in the Eastern suburbs?
If you go to the Northern beaches (where I live) where Manly also has a poorer average attendance then Swans, there is no comparison which is the bigger Brand? The Sea Eagles.

Where do you live, in a smaller city then Sydney?

Furthermore, interested how people define ‘big club’.
AFC Bournemouth has been in the premier league since 2015 & will continue at least another year next year as they are currently 13th. There are 47 clubs in English football with a higher average attendances then Bournemouth, including 6 in the 3rd tier football.

SFC is 1 trophy below the mighty MV!!!!!

I supposed definition of big club RF.
Not sure if you know much about Rugby League, the Sydney Roosters won the NRL premiership last with an average crowd of 13K, it would seek in about 9th-10th biggest crowd wise, even in their premiership winning year. They are just about the richest club in the NRL & fairly successful onfield too in recent years. Maybe you don’t classify them as a big club.

“It’s incredible to think back to that 61k attendance. It must be very close to the largest regular season attendance ever recorded in Sydney for any football code, which is quite a feat.’

An incredible feat considering it is the A-League no 3 football league in Sydney, behind 2 behemoths, in the NRL & the AFL.

Enjoyment.

Only finals can save this A-League season

It’s AR, Post Hoc, this is the same person that got a huff because the Vic Government let Ronaldo play on his hallow turf, the MCG, in the middle of the AFL season.

‘big city clubs dominate the league, as often happens in Europe?’ ummmm unusual statement.

EPL since 1990 4 times, non big city clubs have won the premiership
AFL since 1990 3 times non big city clubs (same club) have won the premiership. Salary cap
NRL since 1990 5 times non big city clubs (3 different clubs) have won the premiership. Salary cap
A-League since inception in 2004 2 times non big city clubs (same team) have won premiership, plus 2 non city clubs (2 clubs) have won GF. Salary cap.

We all have to make the most of the ride RF. It’s far from perfect, but it’s also been a lot worse.

Some smarter decisions can help get the A-League back on track

I follow a wide range of sports too, up there with the biggest highlight of the year starts on Friday our time the Masters. I’ve also enjoyed the swims of some of our best swimmers in the Australian championship. The Rugby World cup is one of the world’s biggest events (that I always look forward too) despite the game struggling in this country.

I like Melbourne, great little city, just the insular view some have there that I find ironic.

Some smarter decisions can help get the A-League back on track

Yes Mid I totally agree, there are some actions that need drastic actions & quick & there are others that will take time & we need patience.
You can see many here who are true football fans who are totally disenchanted with what is happening with football in the country, but there are also others who are driven by their own agendas.
Like you said in your note, it’s the A-League that we need to make work, once that works, the Socceroos, Matildas & youth teams will follow.

Can football fans handle the truth?

MF, he is from Melbourne, it’s a very Melbourne thing, I always found those from down there, who like to talk themselves, their club, their sport, their city up, a sort of insecurity in some sort of pompous way.
Hence why many thought you & him were one person, it may have been different sport, but my club, my sport, my city is the best.

Geez Nemesis, you either have a huge fan or a stalker.

Thanks Mid, good article, while we have some fans & media from other code death riding us, I think one of our biggest issues is within football with all our agendas causing us the most problems.

Irony, an Italian AFL fan talking about racism.

Moise Kean is the new face of Italian football

Yes, we have Mister Football, AR & AlexP providing their insights into how to improve the A-League (well….) & yet their own sport struggles to make a huge dent in NSW & QLD & rely on old Kochie to tell little fibs about AFL in China.
Maybe they should go & provide their great insights on how to improve their game outside of AFL heartland.

Alex breaking news, AFL on the rise with more……ummm, gotta laugh at the AFL machine, lots will believe him.

Australian media identity David Koch, of Port Adelaide AFL club, said last week: “We are the only western sport in the world to play a game in China and to have this support is so important and significant.”

Fair enough you each their own, not particularly keen on the diving myself. But then I don’t really get into some of the thuggery in AFL & RL that some some classified as toughness either.
