Re: The Election - 2019

I'm not worried about it myself. They can read my lame emails any day. I've nothing to hide.
If it catches terrorists and breaks paedophile rings then I'm all for it.

Re: Matildas

I thought it was a very solid display from the Matildas, and a brilliant gutsy fightback. Yes Brazil scored twice (after all, they ARE Brazil), but I thought we largely controlled the game, look compact in defence and held the ball well in possession. I think we've got more to come in front of goal,...

Re: Who's signed for next season

The exempting of extra players from the salary cap will only increase the dominance of the wealthy clubs. AUFC and the other smaller clubs can't afford to spend more money, but the bigger clubs can now increase their spend, including what they have available to attract better quality non-marquee imp...

Re: Matildas

So we lost to Itsly at the World Cup. What's the big problem? At least the Matildas now have a nice culture that doesn't make players feel bad for lack of fitness or for underperforming.

Re: Who's signed for next season

Hopefully we collect a transfer fee, he goes there for a couple of months and plays well but they sack their coach and Isaias doesn't fit into the new coaches system so they release him, he comes back to ADL on a free transfer mid January 2020 just in time to help us to our 3rd title all while play...

Re: New Coach

Agreed. Standard incoming interview. The team has good points, I'll work on fixing the problems, some players will go, some players will come in. You don't even have to look at the list of players, the position on the ladder, or the style of play to say those sorts of things. At least he's noticed t...

Re: Perth Glory v Adelaide United Semi Final Match Day Jamboree!!!© 2019

I actually think the ref should always put the penalties in front of the home support.
They should only toss a coin if it's a neutral venue.

Re: Marco Kurz

Mostly, coaches come and coaches go. I'll back any coach we have while they're here. I might wonder at the decision to move him on, but it doesn't worry me one way or the other. By the way, I think Kurz has been excellent.

Re: Preview: Brisbane Roar v AUFC 25.04.19

I'm hopeful Glory will field their strongest team, unless anyone's carrying an injury. I don't think they'll want players having two weeks off before playing again. So, yes, I hope Glory get a result, but you never know. I liked Blackwood's attitude saying Brisbane will be a tough game and it's a mu...

Re: Police at victory games

I do not condone the heavy handed policing that's been reported. However, I have no problem with the big police presence. Can we actually admit that there has been trouble in the past, caused by some idiots, which means that we know in advance that there'll always be a big police presence at any MV ...

Re: Bruce Djite Retires - Appreciation Thread

Legend. He may have been equal parts brilliant and frustrating, but those precious moments can never be taken away from him. A big part of some big games in our clubs history. Thanks for everything Bruce and best wishes for your next career. (How nice is it to be able to talk about "our club's histo...
