Any heard anything about Perth.

Interesting stuff about Fowler, if Birmingham do want him, can't blame for taking it.

Perth maybe over pay issues, the only thing I've heard is that Chianese may be going to India and Nabbout transferring there.

Personally I’d be pissed of if they don’t look at who has being showing  up for the last four seasons 

So I propose the following criteria 

1) if you did Thursday night anz in the rain against Roar you get heated seat and escort into the ground 

2) pissing rain anz v victory where Llorente pioneered social distancing before Covid was even thought of allowing victory to score twice 

3) travelling to the coasties away end of last season 

4) Phoenix game at anz 

5) staying to the end of the derby when we got bummed senseless (and not in a good way)

 

Anyone been to all 5 of these? I went to 3/5 of them, not to mention the infamous Vedran game vs Roar. 

It will be interesting to see who they let in. Because there is no guarantee that members in each category will go, or even want to go.

Also, what would happen with the RBB? Are they just gonna be spread out across the active bay (finally they aren't all in one big clump in the middle). You might think they would want the RBB at most games if they are able to. This could also affect the number of who goes to games.

I personally think they should see who has been to games (not sure how they can check away games) within the last 3-4 years since we began at Spotless. Personally I believe it shows who the most loyal fans are, however thats just a big assumption and i'm happy for people to disagree.

I am not so sure demand is going to be all that high to be honest...happy to be proved wrong.

I for one, would take any opportunity to go to any game I have the opportunity to. That's just me though. I am football starved, although I'll get my fix next weekend when WB Jnr starts playing again.

I went to 4 home games from that list. I got pneumonia from that Victory game.

God that game was grim yet our fans the only satisfaction I got was calling Gumby a useless prick

I've missed only 2 WSW matches in NSW. As of today, I wouldn't attend a match because of covid. Maybe when the A League does start next month I'll have changed my mind.

Have they released any info on the draw?  All I've heard is that the first week had Melbourne games so now they are looking at options. Not sure how true that is.

5/5 for me but then I made the list 

I’ll be seriously pissed though in the unlikely event of over demand for tickets they don’t look attendance especially for the tough times 

I’d hope they’d look at the attendance in each allocation

It’s just the consequence of trying to finish the season in quick succession. There is pretty much no way to guarantee that each team get a fair crack with the limited time they’ve given to finish the season. Don’t forget, the longer the time in quarantine camp, the more the costs of accommodation will be to house all the clubs.

Lets not forget that without travel, it will give the players a better chance to recover than having to spend x hours on planes/buses traveling to/from games around the country.

The team has a 3 day turnaround with one 5 and two 4 day turnaround.

The Fraudsters have 5 day plus turnarounds for all their games

Hopefully we win the first 2 games. Mariners and Victory have been poor this season. Slightly worried about Vuck as we haven't played them since 2nd round and they have Rojas now (although no Toivonen). 
If we beat Perth and WU we will make finals. They play each other, so if we beat those two we could end up 5th, maybe 4th if Roar tank it lol.

The boys seem to have a lot of desire to come back and kill it. Really hoping they come out firing and boss it. I've heard they are doing a lot of running at training and a bit of on the ball stuff.

Victory lose a lot with no Toivonen. We have no changes to our squad. A win first up is essential imho to rebuild momentum.

Not a huge change but I have been told we officially have Tristan Prendergast as back up.

Lopar is a big loss but otherwise we seem to have kept the squad together. So many other teams are falling apart with foreign players and managers leaving so we have a better chance than before lockdown. The teams directly ahead of us on the table have lost their manager, lost their visa players, feel like one bust up from a complete implosion (looking at you Western United) or will spend the rest of the season playing away from their families in another country. If we can get into the top 6 then anything can happen. We can beat City and seem to have the smurfs figured out this season.
