World class it was. And nearly bettered 5 minutes later by Lopez

…. and the tipping gets off to a predictable start then 😉

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 20

His father is well connected at the FFA, maybe he could arrange it? That seems to be the way things work in Australian football …

Jason Davidson deserves Socceroos recognition

“Another major problem the A-League faces is defining what is its purpose?“ …. that is such an “Australian” thing to say (the seeds of it lie with the AFL biters no doubt).
It’s purpose is clear: to be the premier football competition in Australia. Just like the other 200+ national leagues around the world!

Would Chris Ikonomidis be nothing more than an also-ran in the NSL?

But we’ve had some great quality games in the heat?

Would Chris Ikonomidis be nothing more than an also-ran in the NSL?

The NSL was better than the HAL is probably the lamest of all debates to be honest.

If it was, so what?

If it wasn’t, so what?

And it’s becoming an increasingly one sided argument – no one under 40 experienced the NSL for any length of time and to quote one of my under 16 players last season: “what’s an NSL?” …. the debate is not whether the NSL > HAL but whether the HAL is “fit for purpose” today.

Is a fully professional league delivering to the standards we want and producing a sufficient quantity of quality players??

I’d say not, but it’s moving in the right direction. Just slower than most would like.

Not quite the same argument Fadida.
All referees have to come from a State, unless we hire foreigners?
All MRP members don’t have to be the father of a current player, that was just dumb.

Everything is going great for Sydney FC - except for the results

6 players aged under 22 on Saturday night is a trend we’re likely to see continue. There’s not much point in doing anything else really – does anyone want to see TK given a farewell run??

QSAC is out as it’s bigger than Suncorp and PP’s 5k capacity rules that out.

Dolphin Oval has a 10k capacity and is the only alternative really

I do most time. Just not anything SFC related 😉

Now you’re going down, not up in quality.

(Not to mention he was at the Center of the salary cap breach – hardly “greatest ever” stuff)

Maybe Andy Keogh is the A-League's greatest import?

Me too. But I’m not media accredited so probably don’t count 😉

“Alan Davidson is anything but an impartial judge …”
This was rank amateur stuff from the FFA. Who at the beginning of the season thought it would be okay to allow the father of a serving footballer to sit on the MRP? Who couldn’t see possible problems? Or worse, he now goes on to adjudicate a ban on a key Victory/SFC player heading in to the finals … it is laughable and the sort of thing you’d expect from a third world, tin-pot country that we normally revel in laughing at.
Today North Korean newspapers are writing articles on “how not to do things” based on Australia lol.
No matter whether you think Young deserves 1, 2 or 3 games any decision by Davidson could not be seen to be fair because he has a clear and obvious conflict of interest.
The FFA are funny people.

SFC have got it right with the stadiums and the fans are responding, the only downside is eventually they will return to an over sized stadium permanently.
SFC would do well to remember the success of these visits and I hope Brisbane, admittedly with fewer options i.e. there is only Dolphin Oval, follow suit with say 5 games away from Suncorp next year. City and Nix should follow suit also.

I don’t think a second Perth team is all that daft, particularly in the north.

How a second A-League team in Perth would work

I can’t see Brisbane working out unless someone comes up with a new stadium.
I still think we need South Melbourne and Wolves to come in soon, along with a Canberra team. They would take us to 15 so assuming 16, it’s a fight for one place imo?

How a second A-League team in Perth would work

Sorry Jordon,
I realise you’re being serious.
There’s an acid test for any new club and that is “how do you avoid being the next Melbourne Heart?”
Simply not being the existing club i.e. Glory, can not be enough. Same in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
I agree with your stance on Freeo, but is your North/South of the swan river enough?
And on naming, how about Far Far Far Away United? Should appeal to the kids … they could have an ogre and donkey as mascot?

How a second A-League team in Perth would work

Seriously Jordan, the Perth Glory are top of the league and they are only averaging 9,500 a game

(sorry)

How a second A-League team in Perth would work

Amongst many things how the FFA leadership couldn’t see that allowing the father of a current glory player to sit on the MRP wasn’t controversial is amazing and just speaks to the culture of “we can do what the hell we like”.

FFA have lost control of a narrative now threatening to consume them

The irony is the posters complaining that Mike should be positive and concentrate on the W Lesgue final itself are nowhere to be seen on the actual story dedicated to the final.

Here’s the link to Mary’s article:

Sydney FC vs Perth Glory in W-League Grand Final

Maybe a few people could stop posting here and go and add to the FOUR comments over there?

FFA have lost control of a narrative now threatening to consume them

The top 4 were again the best four this year but just like last year, hard to split.

Sydney are the best side of the two for me, glory have the best player.

Hoping for a big crowd and a good game to cap off another great season.

Any name will work if you put the effort in – just ask Google and Yahoo!

Would I have done it differently if it were my decision? Yes.

Am I morally outraged at their choice? No.

Am I surprised at “the internets” negative reaction? Hell no, that’s what they do lol.

Western United FC is the right name for the A-League's newest club

Nah, only Brattan and Nichols cop it from us.

But it shouldn’t be taken too seriously, Bes used to thrive off the boooo’s and that’s what’s needed.

Brisbane Roar deal Adam Taggart to Asia

but, but, … people might have been confused they were an athletic club?

And people in the west not from Wyndham might have been confused that the team was called “Wyndham” and so not support them?

C’mon, you’rs just complaining for the sake of it aren’t you?

Western United have the name and colours, now comes the hard part
