I know a few who do it less regularly – every body helps!

What exactly is football's reward for starting late and skipping international breaks?

I wasn’t saying it was easy, but it is doable – I do it regularly too. It is much easier if you have somewhere to stay overnight.

From Canberra, Macarthur FC home games will be a doable 2-hr drive next season.

Sydney FC is already doable at 3hrs each way.

Take a bus – Greyhound almost pays you to ride nowadays.

My apologies Joy – I lost interest in your post after the first few lines and missed your last attention-seeking line.

I would reply, but – sadly – I still can’t get past the first few lines.

I suspect your point would find its mark better if it didn’t take whole novels of posts to make it. Your chums Mundane Mike and Minimus Insight have the same problem.

I’ll say it again in different words – you AFL guys seem to know everything about not very much (AFL that is). That would be fine if you didn’t insist on sharing it all here on the Football tab.

‘Woke’? Please explain.

Do you promise that’s the end?

That might be because they can’t beat Tonga (pop approx 100,000)

I guess they are saying you’d have to be brave or stupid to play AFL and they’ve gone with brave.

Joy – you and your AFL friends need to get out more. You remind me of those sad, mad preachers outside Town Hall in Sydney – shouting your message but everybody just walks on by.

‘Courage’…I laughed and laughed. So twee, so Victorian, so culturally special.

That’s one of your best articles Stuart. Excellent, as is Sam Kerr.

Ha ha – welcome back

How soon is too soon for a coach to abandon a system?

Western United are doing alright entertainment-wise.

There’s more! God forbid.

As I said, when there is so little to talk about, a lot gets said about nothing much.

I started reading this and thought ‘why?’.

Wise Post_hoc – I think Tyke’s shovel just surfaced in Beijing

Matildas' equal-pay reports capture football's optimistic outlook - and the PFA's crucial role

Rowdy – I’d stand well clear of the keyboard after you post those figures

Matildas set for equal pay under landmark deal

Rowdy – those percentages show the proportion of males versus females playing the sport. The figures mean cricket, AFL and golf are predominantly played by men. The figures don’t mean those are the top 3 participation sports for men.

Strewth! Imagine the reaction from the English press.

Arsenal should appoint Ange Postecoglou manager

You could view it entirely commercially as well.

The FFA is free to distribute its money however it sees fit. It spends its money in all sorts of ways without much comment – apart from easy and simplistic targets, like gender-based pay differentials, or, Gallop’s salary.

No Marcel, because SFC and Spurs play in different competitions.

SFC has a vested interest in other clubs being properly financed because SFC won’t be commercially viable unless other teams in the A-League are also commercially viable.

In the same way, the FFA has a broader role in managing and fostering Football in Australia than just allocating revenue proportionally to who they think most directly earned it.

I should note that the latest crop of youngsters in the A-League and underage teams looks very promising in terms of skills – but it’s a bit early to tell just how good they are.

Riley McGree finally sheds the jinx of Joyce

A brief chat to some of the foreigners in the A-League might help answer that question.

Ask people like Ninkovic, Toivenen, and Castro how they learnt their individual and team-based skills – I bet their answers are starkly different to the typical experience here (possibly not for the latest underage generation).

These guys (and most other foreigners who turn up here) have far better basic skills than even our national team players. And these guys are just one amongst many from the nations that produced them – why can’t we have a steady stream of players like that?
