Re: RE: Re: Members forum June 2020

They made it pretty clear that there were some behavioural issues they do not want with the next coach, things like dressing down players at press conferences and other obvious things they weren't happy with. That's good to hear, I didn't hate Verbeek but he lost me a bit when he did these things. ...

Re: Season’s finished? Season starting!

There is something very reassuring in seeing Carl Veart in charge of the first team. Hard to argue. Everyone is craving a steady ship in all aspects of life and Carl certainly projects that sense of surety. I feel like Valkanis is the guy long term. He has followed van't schip around since city, to...

Re: Season’s finished?

I’m really concerned about the quality of players a smaller broadcast deal will give us. Foxtel we’re paying the player’s wages. Having been a member since the the start I feel engaged with the club. I’m prepared to pay $40+ a game to see a quality team of eleven players like Mc Gree, Flores, Isias...

Re: Staff & Player Retention

Van der Pol said the club would survive the crisis whether it panned out for a month or for a year. That is a good message to get out. The question then becomes one of what the competition looks like going forward and hence what revenue structure the club has to work with. Theres rumours overseas i...

Re: Lockdown Options

For the most part things have been fairly sensible here in adelaide. It appears the curve is flattening here and we can expect 30-50 new transmission per day which the healthcare system can cope with so fingers crossed it stays that way. I work in public transport and we have seen around an 80% redu...

Re: Staff & Player Retention

I posted this almost 1 full month ago and I feel no new information has really come since then. I stand by what I said . Its no secret how poorly many clubs are run financially, with all matchday revenues halting and a potential refund to members you have to wonder if we will see a rise and fall of ...

Re: Season’s finished?

There must be some kind of clause preventing FFA from ending the season where Foxtel would not have to pay. Its not a good look for the league that its still lingering , it should have been called off weeks ago. However I get the feeling they need the government to shut them down so as not to break ...

EDIT/ 5 new cases today 3 recovered though so SA is at 34 active cases. I am struggling to see how continuation of the A...

What is going on down there? I get the feeling things are moving slowly and you don't really have any clear direction. As for the football I reckon we don't play the TV won't pay.

Re: Coronavirus Football Cancellations

Basically every other football league in the world have been postponed, the A-league is pressing on for now. I don't agree with this at all, the least people travelling the better in regard to community health. We already have a lop-sided league where we play teams an uneven amount of times, just gi...

Blah blah and I have been talking about the corona issues for a month and a half in the asian football section. I shall not rant here lol. Football is a contact sport , the aleague will be cancelled, what will happen in the next couple of months is unprecedented. The absolute majority of us will loo...
