Oh...:(

Their argument seemed valid - re Covid safe etc.

How is it valid? they were admitted to the league in part as they said they would not impact the crowds of the existing teams as long term they would base in west of Melbourne and short term they would play in Geelong. The Geelong ground is Covid safe

What was the point of putting a western melbourne team in if they are going to play at the same ground as the existing two melbourne teams? 
 

What a farce they shouldn’t have been let into the league until they had a ground to play at. Rather than an artists impression of a ground 

Yep.

Just goes to show how inept the FFA were under the control of Gallop and Lowy. WU still haven't put a DA into council for their stadium yet, yet this was one of, if not, the major drawcards of their bid.

Yep, stadium is years off and now they want to play out of same ground as the two existing teams what a farce

As to the Southern Expansion Bid, the Smurfs were deadset against a club on their doorstep.

The bigger issue was the scrutiny that Foster would have applied to the FFA (Lowy and Gallop) as a Club Board member.

Your taking about one of rats of Australian football in Mark Rudan pulling the strings.

It's more about siphoning off Melbourne Victory supporters and Heartle$$ supporters. The other outcome is to actually get a crowd from the other team.

The A-League could have added Team 11, South Melbourne, Wollongong, Canberra or the Cronulla bid with Craig Foster on the board and any of them would have been more viable than WU.

All fair enough!  :hi:

 

 

 

 

PS I just love watching games at AAMI.  :cheeky:

Western United had a trial match against Melbourne City, lost 2-1. 

I'm only writing this on WU's thread as they had some players on trail:

- AYOM AYOM MAJOK: Mentioned about him before, he currently plays for SA NPL club Cumberland United could be signed to the club
- KRISTIAN TRAJCESKI: The attacking midfielder was previously played for 3rd tier Portuguese club FC Oliveira do Hospital.
- CHUDIAR THARJIATH: Signed with NPL Victoria 3 club Ballarat City. He had a trial with Melbourne City in 2019 and was unsuccessful
- ALEX BAKER: Another player from NPL Victoria 3 club Ballarat City, had a trial with Brisbane Roar Youth last year and was unsuccessful
- STEFAN ZINNI: Well, I think we all know him since he is a former Wanderers player. The winger is currently signed to NPL Victoria club Avondale
- NICK (NICHOLAS) SETTE: Was originally from Victory's youth squad but got signed to Altona Magic in January 2020. Mostly plays as a winger
- JALIL REGAGUE: Also currently signed with NPL Victoria 3 club Ballarat City, He also had a trial with Brisbane Roar Youth alongside Alex Baker and was unsuccessful

Couldn't find anything about Leighton Laughton

All I know about him is that with a name like Leighton Laughton his parents don't like him.

So apparently...his name is actually Leighton Lauton

He currently plays with Ballarat City FC and might be related to Melbourne Victory's Brenton Lauton. That's really embarrassing for Western United to have his name incorrectly on their starting list. :rofl:

Western United have had 24 year old Gavin De Niese on trial. Apparently, he has been playing a few years in Portugal with some 3rd tier and 4th tier clubs and was apart of River Plate's youth in his teens.

He had a trial with Melbourne City back in 2016 and was unsuccessful.
