  1. Today
  2. He looks alright in those Pohang Steelers colours.
  3. Good joke. We should be so lucky, if nothing else he's an excellent administrator.
  4. How funny, I just read this now after reminiscing with this very same video tonight!!
  5. Great post WB, and thanks for posting that! Too late to watch it all now - but watched the first 20 mins....and I'll watch the rest on the weekend. It feels really quite unbelievable to have lived through that. Not sure that I will experience such heady times again - but I'm very grateful to have experienced those. PS The look on NTS's face as his goal was mentioned - gold!!

    A-league 18/19 Round 19

    Jets played well! Good to see...given many of their 1st team players were out.
  7. Is he better than Melling?
  8. Looks like his distribution qualities as a young lad have finally translated to first grade football. Looks to be playing as a DM shielding the back 4 alot too. Hell he may be the right priced defensive minded mid we need allowing us to marquee our attack up! come on home Chapman!
  9. Let's make it official then!

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 2

    He’ll he’s worth a sniff. He’s been getting regular game time in a superior team in a superior league. He’s only 24 and has a pretty bright career ahead. Id be more than happy to grab him. Again there’s sweet **** all coming up in long term defensive options this year. Hoping we grab him And he’s got a head like a dropped pie. Definite westie
  11. I'm actually hoping the other 3 sides will make up for that. We just need a few drunk west stand chardonnay's to get in the ears of the away coaches and the 4th official. Job done.
  12. I also think the new Perth Stadium does too. I've also seen a lot of standing fans at AAMI Park in Melbourne at times.
  13. For the life of the A-league, the FFA's biggest mistake has been hiring ex-administrators of other sports. John O'Neill, (Rugby Union), Ben Buckley (AFL) and Gallop (Rugby League). WTF did these clowns know or understand about football and our unique culture? Under their regimes, the sport has lurched from one catastrophe to another, and none of them knew how to handle each debacle. It is why the national competition has been slowly going backwards for years now after such a positive beginning. Surely, the FFA Board could scour the world for a proven CEO that understands the game, its culture and its fans. How could they possibly think otherwise, after the **** storm of negative publicity the aforementioned dickheads have overseen. Football is my passion, and the Wanderers are the pinnacle of that passion. It burns my heart to see what has happened under years of delusional and blind leadership. For the record, I watched this yesterday, and it lifted my spirits, albeit briefly. If anyone has a spare 52 mins and 9 secs over the weekend, I highly recommend it for your mental football health. It made me smile. It made me teary. It made me happy. I'm hoping Parra (V 2) will do the same. I also hope that whoever represents us on the field next year, takes a leaf out of the mentality of players like Cole (you legend). Amazing to hear him speak like this (as well as Topor and Covic). I'd forgotten that Haliti was so influential in that campaign. Also, look at some of the squads we put on the field (bog average) , and the conditions in which they had to endure (e.g. - playing 3 days after a grand final loss in Brisbane and then winning a game in another country). It's seriously inspirational stuff.
  14. I worry that the lack of proper fans in the western stand will affect that.
  15. Lol. Don't say that too loud. The dude is spending most of his time watching Fox News and eating KFC, in his "executive time".
  16. Hindmarsh Stadium at the biggest games sells standing room only tickets.
  17. Couple of comments re some of the pics I posted yesterday. 1. I really don't expect much noise out of that western stand. Not much capacity, and full of champagne sipping, prawn sandwich eating wankers. Probably worth giving that side a miss in future for the WDWSF. 2. I like the fact that the concourse between the lower and upper tiers has a view of the field. It opens up the possibility of selling standing room tickets like they currently do at some other stadiums like the MCG. I remember reading something earlier on in the design phase that there would be around a 2000 standing capacity. I wonder if this is what they meant, and whether they will ever do it. And, it wasn't the safe standing/rail seating bays that they were talking about. 3. The fan forums that were held early on in the design phase appear to have all played out in the design. Steep stands, full roof coverage, plenty of food and beverage outlets etc.... The only thing they haven't built (thank ****) is the stupid idea from (some) Eels fans of a covered walk way from the Leagues Club to the stadium. Stupid ****ers obviously requested that. The place is looking amazing, and I really can't wait to check it out. I also really hope that the RBB return in force. It will be the most intimidating stadium for away teams in the country. In any sport.
  18. Football in Australia is known for its highly toxic politics at all levels, but the issues with the Board are all the fault of the CEO who came in from outside the game? Right. I don’t mind Gallop. He seems to have built a career as a sports administrator who somehow manages to adequately handle hospital pass after hospital pass (and if he doesn’t manage it he usually takes the hit for the Board or broader organisation). The game could do a lot worse.

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 2

    Released = free agent? Edit - just re read your comment, I see the difference
  20. Not quite. Have to be a free agent during a transfer window to be signed by a club outside a window

    A-league 18/19 Round 19

    Pretty good game to watch. A lot of end to end stuff. Soft pen to Victory to get a share of the points.Wellington perhaps a shade better on the night.

    If he's been released, no transfer necessary.
  23. We will see. Gallop could be distracted
  24. Yeh, just not sure how transfer rules apply there...
