Phil Rothfield seems like a Sydney FC fan or has a grudge against the Wanderers like every other sports media journalist for no apparent reason.

Great isn't it

"Probably from the Western Sydney Wanderers" 

Yes WSW fans spend their time walking round macquarie uni looking for signs of COVID policy infringement

Probably just seeing the writing on the wall, salary cap to be slashed next year. That means some cuts need to be made, better to jump first

ESFC gifted a three goal turn around with the Grant non-handball, the Davilla handball and the off side no goal. All were roughly 50/50 calls (to keep it simple) that went their way... 

Shut down the league... again

Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre closing in on City Football Group move


He dashed City Football Group's hopes of winning a first A-League title, now Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre is set to join them.

The Englishman, who helped the Sky Blues to Sunday's 1-0 title-deciding win over Melbourne City, is edging towards the departure lounge with CFG-owned Mumbai City FC the most likely destination.

Sydney are eager to keep their top-scorer of the past two seasons, but sources close to Le Fondre confirmed he could leave due to the impending league-wide player salary cuts.

"We have got some work to do with the PFA and players to ensure we secure a deal with them to ensure we all move forward in a positive direction," Sydney chief executive Danny Townsend said. "Alfie [Le Fondre] is no different. He’s been a fantastic player for the club the last two years, he’s a great guy off the field as well and he means a lot to us."

Le Fondre has an optional extension on his contract for next season but that may not be taken up given the league's finances, which have prompted the India speculation over the past month. Should the 33-year-old have played his last game for Sydney, he will call time on a decorated two-year spell with the harbour city club. Le Fondre scored 45 goals in 67 games across all competitions, winning two championships and a premiership since arriving in 2018.

Well there ya go !!!!  Sydney FC agrees pay deal with all players , what a load of crap this new pay deal is if Sydney as it says below fields their team from season just gone it will be cakewalk 

This is bull@$#*


Sydney FC have reached a pay deal with their players, while the A-League clubs and the PFA are closing in on securing a new collective bargaining agreement.

As the A-League clubs and Professional Footballers Australia close in on a new collective bargaining agreement, reigning champions Sydney FC have reached a pay deal with their players.

Negotiations have continued since the players' union members rejected a proposal by clubs in September but they are expected to sign off next season's CBA in the coming days.

The clubs have instead been negotiating pay deals directly and on Tuesday Sydney confirmed they had reached an agreement with their playing group.

Sydney captain Alex Wilkinson, who is also the PFA president, lauded the "amicable" discussions between the Sky Blues and their players.

"It has been a very difficult process but we have come to an agreement and now we can concentrate on playing football," Wilkinson said in a statement.

"It has been a challenging time but the negotiations have been amicable and in good faith, and the club have handled the situation with great care and respect.

"Our players, and every player across the league, takes the future of football in Australia and our members' interests very seriously, and they have put that before any personal benefit.

"Now we move on and look forward to getting ready for the new season."

Sydney chief executive Danny Townsend also lauded the "open" discussions the A-League champions had with their playing staff.

"Our players have been magnificent throughout these negotiations and they should be given huge credit for the sacrifice they've made for the good of the A-League and game in this country," he said.

"We've had a very honest and open dialogue and the club is hugely appreciative for the respect they have given the process."

Sydney FC returned to training on Tuesday ahead of their bid for a third consecutive championship, while they are also preparing to kick off their Asian Champions League campaign in November.
