Good to see the “lads will be lads” rubbish is alive and well 🙄.

I don’t think football has the problems of many other sports, but that’s not to say it can’t be better and that players shouldn’t be held to a high standard.

Cool jump on the football bashing bandwagon then.

Geelong still learning how to deal with football supporters.

Football Federation Australia, Sydney FC and GMHBA Stadium will investigate claims that Sky Blues fans were removed from Sunday's A-League game between Western United and Sydney FC - just for standing up.

 

A number of Sydney FC fans complained on Twitter about the security manning the visitors' bay.

There were claims some supporters from 'The Cove' were reproached for standing in the area with a number either moved out of the bay or from the ground entirely.

The away supporters bay - situated in a corner of GMHBA Stadium - had several security guards in and around the bay throughout the match.

Early in the game, this was largely in the form of staff standing at the ends of the bay, though at times there were security guards in the bay itself.

Sydney FC won the game 2-0 courtesy of two Adam Le Fondre goals in the first half.

An FFA spokesperson said the peak body will investigate the claims on Monday, while a Sydney FC spokesperson also confirmed the club would look into the situation.

A stadium management spokesperson said it would provide a statement about the matter on Monday.

When we were there standing wasn't a problem, but standing on seats was.

Same old problem. Security and police used to "rah rah rah, clap clap clap" every few minutes.  Anything else is 'anti social behaviour'. 

Security says "sit down". Fan says "get *****" and it escalates from there.

Interesting to see amazon prime taking some premier league games in the UK sky/foxtel model is a dinosaur 

Challenge for FFA is jump to early to streaming only and you lose exposure and a Fcked jump too late and you go down with the titanic 

it’s fine though as the FFA and A League are lead by highly intelligent experts so it’s all cool

The FFA/HAL should be getting their affairs in order to try and establish some sort of deal beyond the the current one because once the current NRL/AFL deals expire the **** is gonna hit the fan in rights land...

Reports suggesting Fox will not bid for the final round of World Cup qualifiers. These games, I'm pretty sure, are separate to the current broadcast deal as they're controlled by Lagadere.

Yep, read Optus might be interested that not only will they broadcast Socceroos games but also other Asian WCQ games which seems like a much better deal

So, anyone else see the Bossi article on the big moments in football for the past decade? Domestically his notables are as follows: The rise of the Matildas and the women's game in general - check, the Socceroos qualifying for every world cup and winning the 2015 Asian cup - check, the rise and fall and rise of Ange - check.....and that's it. Then it's off overseas.  No mention of the greatest achievement ever by a local club in winning the ACL in 2014, not to mention the premiership win at the first attempt. Now i don't want to live in the past but this is a historical look at the local game over the last decade. Seriously this bloke really doesn't like us much, does he? Twat

Football agent Paddy Dominguez says the A-League must move on from its ‘archaic’ transfer system and create a new economy if it wants to grow and compete with other leagues across the globe.
 
Dominguez, who has been a player agent for 30 years and has brokered deals for the likes of Aaron Mooy and Jamie MacLaren, told Fox Football Podcast host Adam Peacock that the A-League needs to create a financial transfer set up that gives players a dollar value — rather than just in-house swaps with zero fees.

If the competition wants to be recognised on a global scale by potential international suitors who are hoping to poach talent from Australian shores, Dominguez has urged the A-League to step up its game in regards to the transfer system itself.

“It’s about creating an economy,” he said.

“Initially the thought process behind creating the A-League was to centralise everything and to put a salary cap on to give us a stable base to grow from rather than just allowing people to spend as much money as they want and create haves and have-nots very quickly. It’s also to make the clubs sustainable in the early days. You could look back now in hindsight and say that maybe that didn’t work because the owners have racked up a lot of losses.

“The intentions were good, but it’s now at a stage where it needs to create an economy of football. At the moment there is no financial transfers between clubs so we’re back to an archaic barter system where two teams in the A-League have to agree to swap players.

“Traditionally when two clubs wants to swap players they have a dollar value on them, maybe it’s a player plus cash, but you can’t do that in the A-League.”

Remarkably, Riley McGree’s transfer from Club Brugge to Adelaide United was the very first fee paid by an A-League club for a player.

Dominguez claims Aussie clubs are, in fact, ‘business-minded’ and says transfers like this will be - and should become - more frequent.

“If a player like Riley (McGree) can improve significantly over a year or two then they’ll (A-League clubs) get an offer and they may even make a profit on that investment,” Dominguez said.

“It’s sheer investment for them but at the same time they get a good player.

“Australia, for all intents and purposes, is an export market. Every young player in this country if you speak to them in a park or wherever they’re kicking a football and you ask them of their dream, it’s to go and play in Europe. If I got to Brazil and I speak to a kid in a park in Brazil then it’s the same dream there — they all want to go to Europe and play at the top-end of football.

“You have to become good at being an export market. Firstly you need a local economy I believe which can kickstart it and then from there it will grow because you’ll start to have actual dollar values on people. To build it, you just need to get it started and get it started soon.

Listened to the pod Decent listen but to be honest Bozza has been talking about this for years hardly earth shattering news and anyone with half a football brain knows the good to come of it. 

also the journo who wrote that obviously never knew about Carlos Hernandez one of the leagues all time great showman. 
victory paid close to 700k for a xfer fee for him - journos here give me the shits so lazy

Introducing domestic player values will also stop clubs being ripped off with piss take level transfer coming in from OS clubs. 

Sydney receiving a mere $250-300k for the impending transfer of O’Neil is a joke...

Is it though? I realistically think that he probably isn’t worth a great deal as a player. He hasn’t got a resale value, short contract & I think for a player being shopped out to below the championship then it’s probably fair.

Got to remember that the values paid for transfers in Europe, especially England are inflated. Grossly inflated.

If you said at the time 3 million for Juric was fair no one would argue with you, majority of the time it’s about how well the team and player are doing Juric and wsw has massive profile at the time. Now he’s two steps away from being Bulut.

300k for O’Neill seems a little cheap I would say 500k for a good A-League plater is fair value... but his end of day his a ginger hair twerp 😝

They may be grossly inflated but it’s still the same economy that we are all part of. For too long we’ve been getting screwed over in Australia. Realistically, are Sydney going to spend 250-300k and get the same guaranteed quality? I don’t think so

It’s the same mechanism but the market is different, supply vs demand

I usually enjoy the Guardian’s coverage but Christ, what a pompous article. “This thing that should be fun is bringing people too much fun.” Seriously, part of what makes the Aleague great is it’s utter insanity. 

Give me Matt Simon thrashing home a penalty in the 95 or whatever minute it was or Graham Arnold demanding an apology on live TV over the boring sanitised product of the top leagues any day.
