  2. Sport is inherently political. Questions of identity, race, class and gender affect every element of sport. Sports people have the right to express political views and fans have a right to criticise those views. The common refrain of 'let's keep politics out of sport' is a cudgel to prevent people expressing views that those people disagree with. See Goodes, Kaepernick, Serena Williams. Those same people stand for the national anthem and applaud the troops when they are trotted out at sporting events. Where are the cries of 'keep politics out of sport' then? The ongoing occupation o

  3. Some of the racist comments from our so called fans on fb and insta make me sick. So much for a team that represents the most culturally diverse region in Australia. Those fans threatening to walk because of this signing, pack up and f*ck off. The race rubbish was the reason I and many others never followed NSL.

  5. There is a big difference between showing love of your country and showing distain of other lands or beliefs. People that want to draw that line are basing it more on what they believe than what you infer he does. Check out the anti racism video he was involved in at Bright Hove Albion. I don't give a **** if he is blue, black, yellow or pink he hasnt been signed for his political beliefs, as long as he plays football with his heart on his sleeve Ill be happy.

  6. What an excellent post! As an Australian with Jewish heritage, I struggle with the whole vexed Israeli-Palestinian mess. As do my football-mad kids. In essence, we are against the right-wing nationalists and others who currently hold power in Israel and we support a 2 state solution and freedom for the Palestinians - some of the vision I have seen from there is just horrendous and the people are seemingly without hope. However, I understand that the provocations of Hamas rockets and the antipathy towards even the existence of Israel by many of its near neighbours leads to an often paranoid sta

    Iran is well known for supporting the Palestinian cause. It is very clear that the club now needs to sign Majid Hosseini for the CB position. Not only is he a quality CB, but more importantly, it will level things out in the public debate. Right?

For those who want to learn about Tomer, maybe read up on his close friendship with Beram Kayal, a Muslim Israeli Arab who played with him at Brighton, Charlton and with the Israeli national team. They first played together at Maccabi Haifa when they were 13. Pretty nice story if you ask me. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/nov/21/beram-kayal-tomer-hemed-israelis-brighton

    Antonis is only 27 years old. Give him 400k PA on a 5 year contract. Between Najjarine, Ugarkovic & Antonis we could ditch the mediocre non-scoring foreigners wasting spots in midfield until 2025.

    Yes Wendy, there is news and it is good. Bleeding was stemmed, Westmead were happy with his progress today and have released him. He is now happily back with mum in their aged care facility, although I suspect that by this time tomorrow, he won't even remember the whole incident. It was good news though, and I'd just like to thank everyone for their kind thoughts, comments and pm's. It meant a lot to me to have that support from my caring WSW's family.

    Show me the any owner of an A-League club, past and present, who poured more than 20 million dollars of their own money into a club’s infrastructure. The financial involvement of several clubs to ensure the Jets’ survival was driven by one thing only: ensure the survival of the league itself. 15 months ago the future for professional football in Australia looked grim, with at least four clubs facing collapse.

  18. First time back on here for a while, had to take a break after this season. Very disappointing season considering the hype and expectation with the squad built. Not disappointed about any of the released players. Seems as if Muller may be off to India, surprised about Al Taay however. Surprised Mutch and Yeboah still haven't been announced as released as neither regularly play for us, aren't needed. Mutch isn't even in the bloody country, he is roaming around California by the looks of things. Will personally drive Mcgowan to the airport should he decide to accept the offer in t

  20. We are the West Tigers of the A-League. No one will play for us unless we pay huge overs and even then, we simply get the leftovers. No finals for years, declining memberships every season and diminished attendees at the stadium. At this stage, the few of us on this forum may be the only game attending fans left. It'll be like attending an NPL game soon if we don't find some form of success. We don't want the club to announce the acquisition of some hasbeen a-league journeymen, WE NEED SOME SERIOUS AND EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENTS. PS. I can't believe they sent out th

  22. On the game, I thought Southgate set up perfectly to begin with. Seems to be the new tactical theme where teams play a back three with super aggressive wingbacks who provide back post overloads. Germany tore Portugal apart that way with Gosens and Kimmich, so much so England had to match Germany's formation in the R16 match to cancel it out. England's goal in the final came the same way. As soon as Shaw played the ball to Kane on the left of the field Trippier at right wing back immediately made a run into the open right channel. When Kane switched it out to him Shaw made the correspondin

  23. Seriously, can people just stfu about the politics re Hamed's signing? The discussion only further incites the hatred and division of those who allow it to. Let's be happy we have signed a class player. I thought one of the advantages of our sport in this country was the fact we ARE the world game, and are all inclusive. We ARE western Sydney, the most multi cultural region in the country. This is a football website and such discussion of a new signing should be about his football abilities, nothing else. Let's leave the **** talk for AFL websites shall we? We are better than th

    India's cases have dropped from "burning corpses in the hospital front yard" level of 415k to "just" 35k new cases a day because they started inhibiting movements more seriously, and vaccinated a lot more people. They gave 200 million extra people at least one dose since their peak case level. That's why the media don't cover it any more. Because there's no scenes of corpse burning or assaulting doctors to show. Not because of some western big pharma conspiracy to supress a drug that no-one has been able to prove actually helps in any statistically reliable fashion. If drinking bleach, Hy

  37. The criticism of JT is misdirected. A CEO of a sporting club is there for commercial and stakeholder engagement along with finance and business management. They’re also a mouthpiece/yes man for the chairman. People keep criticising JT like he’s the one out on the training paddock each session running the boys around and setting the tactics prior to games. If that was the case then why have a manager?... Someone on this thread over the past week was even having shots at him for his office etiquette and work ethic. What a load of BS! Unless someone on here regularly shares office spa

  39. Yes all of the above... the continued delusion from the people making the decisions that we are" a big club" is amazing. Would have been, could have been, should have been..... The facts speak for themselves..at best mid to bottom table club. Revolving door in terms of managers, yearly cleanout of squad.... But still the same people running the club at the top.... Also as has been said many times already.. just not enough having a nice big new empty stadium, good training facilities and youth academy.

    Another annoying aspect of Australian coverage generally is the Aussie patriotism to nausea whereby they'll prefer to show an Australian 'making up the numbers' in a sport rather than focus on elite athletes from another country.

  41. Who was that flog that was quoted in some newspaper that he was switching allegiances to Melbourne Heart because they signed Maltese legend Michael Mifsud? Same deal here That said, on this political view stuff from Hemed, he is free to voice his opinion and we are free to voice ours. While we may want him to score goals, let's remember that him reminding people of the Israel-Palestine conflict is going to trigger certain parts of the community because some have died, been displaced, or have lost their livelihoods/homes/whatever due to the conflict. And that is more important than any foo

  43. The Blacktown development was carried by the owners, paid for with their private money, 20 million dollars plus. The money was not taken out of the club's operational budget. I can tell you that this is fact, not some internet "truth", or a personal opinion. How this compares with other clubs I can't say. What I do know is that most other clubs, including Smurfs and VIC, are paper entities, there is nothing to them at the back end. In 15 years they have not done anything to build up their respective clubs beyond playing football. It makes them highly vulnerable, they rely on the interes
