Re: Who's signed for next season

“A clubs true ambition can be mapped by its willingness to invest in it womens teams” Thoughts? I wouldn't really call that ambition. More an understanding of the changing world we live in. Obviously we don't know where women's sport will be in 10-20 years but IMO it's blatantly obviously its growi...

Re: New rectangular stadium in Adelaide?

A great match day experience for me is when AU plays well and gets the result. No amount of bars, pubs, restaurants, fireworks, marching bands, dancing bears or fly overs, before or after, would improve my condition after experiencing United getting beaten at home. I may be old school and from the ...

Re: Membership statistics

Over 6,300 members now. A nice jump in the last week. ... which means that we just passed Perth for membership numbers, which moves us up to seventh in the gross membership figures - a good outcome. I'd be interested to see the 'per capita' figures for each A-League team. Would that show, for insta...

Re: FFA Semi: Bentleigh vs AUFC

Agree on Blackwood. His buildup play was brilliant. He just cannot finish. I reckon Elsey would be a more clinical striker than him! I think he needs to spend the next month just practicing his finishing. Yeah that's the problem with the football system here. Players like Blackwood are given such l...

Re: FFA Semi: Bentleigh vs AUFC

I don't mind the idea of loaning players out to NPL sides, but that would mean players outside the HAL squad. And that means more costs, because you'd have to sign them to a contract and you'd never recoup that sort of cost from an NPL side for an unproven youngster. Considering a restrictions on t...

Re: FFA

Let's see how quickly the A-league clubs boost their share of the pie (with the support of the PFA) at the expense of the national teams and grass roots. The payoff to the states will be an underfunded second division, which will mean no expansion teams straight into the A-league. I haven't been fo...

Re: FFA Semi: Bentleigh vs AUFC

Does the ffa cup earn a acl qualification match ?
No I don't think so. The wiki page which is generally the best resource for ACL info says it will be the same as it is now. GF winner, League winner and League runner up.

Re: FFA Semi: Bentleigh vs AUFC

First game I've seen all season and whilst the pitch sucked, these are my impressions of the new boys: The good: -Boland: looks like a German Isa. Handy acquisition. -Jakobsen: very cool head and better than Gulum. -Halloran: dangerous player and one I think will only improve. The not so good: -Ils...

Re: FFA Semi: Bentleigh vs AUFC

Very solid in defence. Plenty of chances created. Enough chances taken advantage of. No injuries. Happy days.

We've lost nothing bringing Boland in for Adlung.
