When it comes to money, we close our eyes, it’s just in sport, they are easy to pick on, but when it comes to big corps & governments that is different.

How should football protest Qatar 2022?

And go to eat at places like McDonalds & KFC.
Hypocrites.

I just watched the England v Spain game in the Women’s Euros.
Their is no way in the last 5-10 years of watching the Matildas, there is no way Australia has ever played to that standard of passing & moving, no matter who was the coach.
That was one amazing game of Women’s football, probably the best standard I have ever watched.

The Filipinas love coach Alen Stajcic, so why didn’t Football Australia?

Gotta to love Sam Kerr!!!!

History-making Sam Kerr joins Mbappe on cover

Thanks TSS love these articles.

Unpacking the NPL's latest international success story

Exactly, gone are the days where the USA & lesser extent Japan & Australia had professional or at least semi professional, women’s football is growing & fast.

What does that mean?

The only way to beat the Eurosnobs is by supporting the A-Leagues

OOPs yes.

Thanks Chris, didn’t think I said USA, Norway & Australia days are over.
Some like to read to suit their agenda.

Who would have thought that 6 Asian countries would play in WC22 & only 4 Sth American countries. Times they are a changing,

See this is the difference in views, it was not Norway’s efforts I was looking at but England, this is where I see the difference.

There was 13 countries that qualified for WC 22 from Europe & the Euros champions, again Italy was not one of them.
Just amazing!!!!

Iceland a country of less 400K qualified for the world cup in the same Federation that Italy, 3 times world champions did not in 2018.

I’m glad the Villa footballers can lend a hand to a sport that has a much smaller profile.
The AFL over the years has had a lot of ‘Look at me moments’. This is not to say the AFL is not massive in Melbourne, it is as big as any sporting code in the world, but outside of Southern & western seaboards of Australia, it’s quite tiny.

I’m not touching the reason behind Stajcic’s dismissal as we are yet to find out the true reason.

However, blaming the Mathidas demise on his dismissal is wrong, maybe he could have done a better job than Gustavsson, probably no doubt there.

The reason why ‘the disparity between the quality of their play and that of the best-performing European nations appears to have widened significantly over the last 18 months’ is not because of the change of coach, its because the massive changes in women’s football in the last 3 years & the fruits are coming out now. There is so much money & attention on women’s football, I’ve never followed the Women’s Euros until this year, Barcelona women’s team were getting 80K to a football match, the top leagues are paying good money for their players.
Sam Kerr earns more money then any male footballer (any code) in Australia, 2-3 times more.
England just beat Norway a former powerhouse in women’s football 8-0.

Australia had small window to succeed before the women’s game went truly professional & the window is no truly shut.
Not saying we can’t produce stars like Sam Kerr & Ellie Carpenter or produce a decent team, but Spain, England, France, Netherlands the traditional big teams in men’s football are now coming on in a big way because of the money in the sport.

There are hundreds of Dukes running around in Australian football, not many Rogics, as a matter of fact only 1.

Where to next for Rogic and Mooy? Crucial decisions heading into the 2022 World Cup

Oh yes 100% a technique worshipper.
I pray for a the day Australia produces a player with Duke’s workrate & Rogic’s skill or Leckie physical abilities & Mooy’s technique.
Our trouble is we have many players with physical abilities or high workrate but not too many players of Rogic or Mooy technique or ability.
Hopefully the younger ones we do.

Where to next for Rogic and Mooy? Crucial decisions heading into the 2022 World Cup

Duke works hard, but gives very little else, he cannot hold the ball up, he cannot bring others into play, has not got the ability against a decent team.
I for one appreciate the work rate he provides in defending, but have no understanding why he is in the team as an attacking player.

Thanks TSS for providing some insights into the fact like the rest of us, there is personal side to these professionals & life issues do come up & we should not be so judgemental when we are in the dark.

Yep just about how I see as well.

Both a real pleasure to watch for SFC especially live.

Victory land Portuguese star Nani

Ninkovic was the best player to play for SFC.
Del Piero was the greatest player to play for SFC.

Who was the best signing, well I loved both for obvious different reasons, but can say one was better because of longevity.

Victory land Portuguese star Nani

He’s a very fit professional, I think age which not matter unless you are expecting a flying winger of his youth.
This guy has great skill.

Victory land Portuguese star Nani

Yes I agree.

For Australian football, the times they are a changin’
