Good!

Could Brisbane Roar be this season's surprise package?

3-0 at the end.

How should Australian football use the new media deal to grow the game?

I knew this because I have Google Alert on “Brisbane Roar”. However, this is a reactive way. 10 Play, and Brisbane Roar should do marketing in a pro-active way.

Usually, I would receive emails from RSF (The Roar Supporters Federation Inc). But there is not this time. Maybe…

'Tonight we shocked the world': How Arnie's Olyroos rocked Argentina

Southgate made a bad decision in this finale, substituting Sancho and Rasford in the last 2 minutes just to take the penalty shootout. Unluckily, both of these 2 players failed.
Both of these 2 players imitated Sócrates’ style of penalty shooting. But I always prefer shooters firing low and strong shots without waiting for the goalie to move first.

'You can't let a child go ahead of you': England stars roasted as Italy win Euros shootout

Why Harry Kane did not get a penalty when tripped? Why VAR did not intervene?
Think Australian referees and VARs are clowns. Think again.

After too many years and too many tears, this one’s personal

Has Azzurri played the shortest-passing soccer ever in the world in the first half of the match against Spain 2 days ago?

I should rephrase the question to “Has Azzurri played the shortest-passing soccer ever in Europe in the first half of the match against Spain 2 days ago?” as I seldom watch South American football.

By comparison of performance, England would win in the Grand Finale.

England had not conceded one goal until Damsgaard’s free kick. Apart from this, the English defenders played well against the Denmark players. On the other hand, Azzurri has conceded 3 goals. The goal lost to Spain in the quarter final showed Azzurri’s defending weakness. Watch replay to see.

England also won 2-0 in the match against the Germany team which got out of the group comprising of France (the current WC champ) and Portugal (the 2016 Euro champ winner). Is this Germany team weak lately?

The latest odd is “Italy are priced at 2/1 to win in 90 minutes on Sunday, with England 6/4 favourites. The draw is priced at 21/10.”. Is the odd reasonable?

Sorry!

The two romantic reasons I'm an Italian in disguise

The two romantic reasons I'm an Italian in disguise

I thought totally that was a penalty when watching live this morning.
However, since so many say about diving, I watched on demand again. The revised thinking is “50-50”. Thus, Denmark might have been unlucky on that penalty. But England deserves the win. As for Denmark, the overall performance is not good. They defended 110 minutes and they were outplayed in the final 15 minutes of the whole match. Once England led, Denmark played no football.
How good a match is going to be when Italy match England in the Grand Finale!

It's coming home, or it's coming Rome: Controversy as England reach Euro final v Italy

The first time into a major final after 55 years, winning Denmark 2-1.

Emotional Danes’ unique mindset has them primed for England upset

“Italy’s manager Roberto Mancini has assured the Azzurri followers that his team will allow Spain to dominate the ball in Tuesday’s 2020 Euro semi-finals.
Speaking ahead of what is probably the final before the actual final, the question has been whether such a proud team like Italy will let Spain conquer ball possession like some minnows?
“We can’t become Spain just like that,” Mancini explained in his pre-match press conference, as quoted by Marca.
“We are Italy and we have our own style.
“They have a very defined style and we are Italy,” Mancini concluded.”

However, they both play possession football in the first half, just first half. That was so boring, this morning, when I experienced Optus Sports for the first time.
It was so boring when long ball had been totally taken away, totally.
I cannot cast the match to my big scree TV like i usually did with Kayo. Hope Paramount + is not going to be like that in next season of A-league.

The Roar's Euro 2020 expert tips and predictions: Semi-finals

When you have lock down the best thing to do is to watch Euro.

Ooo interesting!
The broadcasting channel of this Olympics is 7. Will channel 10 show Olyroos’ matches?

Is Ten/ Paramount+ serious about football in Australia?

Okay!
I seldom read articles, I read comments usually.
So, the target in the article is 40 matches, including FFA Cup and finals.
For FFA Cups and finales, some clubs play more, some clubs play less. So, average matches for all A-league clubs should be around 3 matches in both FFA Cup and finals. Just roughly!
Then 40 takes away 3 is 37 matches.
With an unbalanced 3 rounds option, the total matches is 33 for each club. That is not a fair arrangement.
To make a fair home and away arrangement, there should be 16 to 18 teams. However, can the Australian population support that? Why Arnold’s saying should be the benchmark?
Expanding from 26 matches (29 matches if including FFA Cup and finals) to 40 matches means the season prolongs 3 months, unless many mid-week matches. The matches in mid-week and overlapping with Rugby and AFL seasons attract small crowd. Why we need 40 matches? What actually Arnold meant?
If you are running a restaurant, can you have more customers by extending the opening hours?
Please explain the reasons for getting 40 matches for each club?
Please explain?

How many expansion teams would work in winter A-League?

UK has the population 3 times bigger than that of Australia. That is why they can have 20 teams in EPL.

40 games?

How come that?

EPL has 20 clubs. Then 19 homes matches plus 19 away matches = 38 total matches. Revise your mathematics.

Gramham Arnold said that? Provide a reference or a link please.

The is no need to have 20 clubs to have relegation.

14 clubs make 26 matches for each club, perfect!

List of cities in Australia by population
Sydney (5.230m)
Melbourne (4.936m)
Brisbane (2.463m)
Perth (2.059m)
Adelaide (1.346m)
Gold Coast (679k)
Newcastle (487k)
Canberra (458k)

There should be a team in Gold Coast and Canberra each.

Retropestively, Campbelltown’s and Geelong’s population are 12,566 and 253,269 respectively.

For decades, FFA has made mistakes in expansion of the A-league.

Just looking at the populations, there should be another 2 clubs in Gold Coast and Canberra.

ps,

Vaccines have an efficacy of 60% usually. That means 5 x 0.6 = 3. That means if vaccinated, the spreading rate reduces from 5 to 2.

I have the first dose of vaccine weeks ago. Everyone should do it. Have you?

In the past 24 hrs, NSW has 5 new local covid cases.

That may be the factor determining the location.

Thank!

However, I received different answers.

One says APL while the other says clubs.

Any other wise guys can advise?

Vince Rugari in the report talks about “Cash-strapped A-League clubs could be turning down roughly $1 million in additional revenue by holding Saturday night’s grand final outside of Sydney…”.

The income of the finals belong to FFA. Has that changed?

NSW has two new local cases while Victoria none.

That means the Grand Finale will be at the AAmi Park. And FFA will try to finish the season ASAP, no more delay.

The issue is raised every year. When there is no relegation, the top-6-for-finals has to be kept. Otherwise, many matches, at the end of the season, become dead rubber.

Did the Central Coast and Brisbane get what they deserved from the A-League finals?
