    just got to say I'm gutted for Rado, it's a hit for the Wanderers and life will go on, but it must be absolutely gut wrenching for him, all the best mate hope it pans out well for you in the coming months.

    I have a feeling 12-15k. The way WSW are pushing for ticket sales on SM suggests not many general ticket sales have been sold. Our membership total is down too from the last couple of years (which is strange, unless the cows have already had an impact). Anything under 25k will be seen as a failure by the wider HAL community and rival fans because we've been harping on about this stadium for 3 years. But success brings the crowds....and its gonna rain on Saturday lol

    Jokes

    A blind man wanders into an all Girls Biker Bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders some coffee. After sitting there for awhile, he yells to the waiter, 'Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?' The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, 'Before you tell that joke, sir, I think it's only fair, given that you're blind, that you should know five things: 1) The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2) The bouncer is a blonde girl. 3) I'm a 6 foot tall, 80 kilo blonde woman with a black belt in karate. 4) The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter. 5) The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously Mister, do you still wanna tell that joke? The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters, 'No, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times.'

    Football Media Discussion 2

    I watched Offsiders this morning (I normally don't, considering its heavy AFL bias). I watched because this was the first episode since they won the free to air rights. It was an NRL based panel, which is fair enough considering it is GF day. Panelists were Roy Masters, Andrew Moore and that Irish rugby union lady whose name escapes me. What pissed me off was that in the 90 seconds at the end of the show that they had a chance to promote their newly acquired sport, they criticized it. Andrew Moore, 702's prime RL caller spent more time talking up the NBL than he did the A-League. Criticized our draw, and the fact that our new team, WU, were being sent to Wellington for their first home game, while the NBL's new team (I didn't even know they had one) had a home game first and sold it out. Wouldn't one think that they would try and say something at least remotely positive about our sport? Even Kellie Underwood (the host and an AFL tragic), could hardly bring herself to mention the new coverage, and just referred to the new deal as "All things football will be covered." I'm so sick of the ABC's Victorian bias when it comes to sport. One only has to watch ABC 24 to see this. Hardly a bright start and ringing endorsement of this new contract.

    This formation does not suit us, we get over run in midfield. Wait till we play a better team, could be ugly. We don’t look like at top 4 team, let alone winning the league. Watching the Melb derby, both teams looked much more connected and fluid.

    It was a performance that lacked fluency and pace. McGowan still gives too many passes to opponents and Meier will need every minute of the time between now and the Sydney Derby to gain the fitness he needs to make an impact. Hopefully, this was the low point and everything will be onwards and upwards from here. As a baseline, with a win and nearly double last year's average attendance it was still a positive night.

    As others have mentioned was great to be home. They stadium is perfect for watching football! as for the game yeah in first half the 3 at the back was generally marking one up front one of the 3 should have been more adventurous- appeared to be better second half. Of the 3 Tass and Jurman looked pretty solid - McGowan was better than I’ve seen so I’m optimistic we will be more tight - and lopar is looking clear upgrade of that cock head Sullivan didn’t get involved much but he struggled to find space - mariners did well pressing us was hard to get And free flowing play going. Scwegler is a gun, baccus has to outperform this guy before he thinks of going OS - good reality check AMFG looked technically good but let’s be honest he also looked as lazy as after 20 mins - long way to go for him but the quality and touch I could see . The first goal actually came from him being too lazy to come to the ball! We lost it and they went and countered Lucky to get win but concerned for next 2 games away to Vic and the derby - we need to be a lot better to win

    It's a story of overcoming the odds. Building a team out of nothing (except the funding siphoned from the other clubs, the government grants, council support, free advertising). Struggling through setbacks (of player suspensions for eye gouging) to reach the pinnacle grand final day (after finishing the regular season 6th). The the boys (not) from the west of sydney invade the stronghold of vicky-kicky to take on the evil Richmond. The ending to this epic story will be written in just over 24hrs. Its a compelling narrative. Can hardly wait.

    The key to overcoming Football injuries is how the squad look at them. Are we a SQUAD and we can overcome this or do we rely on that ONE player which means we aren't a good TEAM!

    Duke Double Opens Stadium

    I'm giving Babbel the benefit of doubt here. Majewski gone ( taken out at training ). Yeboah and Kamau injured during the week at training. So our AM gone along with two players with pace were out. He was caught between a rock and a hard place as to the line up. Elrich went out early and he had to make a sub. That being said......he should of started Mo Adam instead of Meier and Grozos instead of Sullivan. . Injuries are a major concern though...We are burning up the squad and it's just R1.

    Totally agree. Unless big changes made, can see a 4 nil or similar scoreline against us next weekend.Though a victory for us last night, didn't actually see many positives on the field. It was like a continuation of last season but somehow managed to ground out a victory with a bit of help from VAR. Even in a scoreless draw, you can see the difference in quality on the pitch in the Melbourne Derby. I know it is only the first game but in terms of thinking about the next game, with this line up, it is looking ominous.

    Jokes

    Two old pensioners are taking a trip down memory lane by going back to the place where they first met. Sitting at a café, the old man says, 'Remember the first time I met you over 50 years ago? We left this cafe, went round the corner behind the gas works, and I gave you one from behind.' 'Why, yes, I remember it well, dear,' replies the little old lady with a grin. 'Well, for old time's sake, let's go there again, and we'll do it again.' The two pensioners pay their bill and leave the cafe. A young man sitting next to them has overheard the conversation and smiles to himself, thinking it would be quite amusing to see two old pensioners at it. He gets up and follows them. Sure enough, he sees the two pensioners near the gas works. The little old lady pulls off her knickers and lifts up her dress. Well, what follows is 40 minutes of the most athletic sex the man has ever seen. The little old man is banging away at the little old woman at a pace that can only be described as phenomenal. Limbs are flying everywhere, the movement is a blur, and they do not stop for a single second. Finally, they collapse and don't move for an hour. Well, the man is stunned. Never in his life has he ever seen anything that equates to this -- not in the movies, not from his friends, not from his own experiences. Reflecting on what he has just seen, he says to himself, 'I have to know his secret. If only I could shag like that now, let alone in 50 years' time!' The two old pensioners have by this time recovered and dressed themselves. Plucking up courage, the man approaches the pensioner. He says, 'Sir, in all my life I have never seen anybody shag like that, particularly at your age. What's your secret? Could you shag like that 50 years ago?' The pensioner replies, 'Son, 50 years ago, that f***ing fence wasn't electrified.'

    Royal Oak it is. I've made enquiries with the Woolie & they're not prepared to do anything for WSW fans, (get this) given we've not been venturing to their venue for the last 3 years. Whilst they're happy for WSW supporters to frequent their venue, 20 or so drank there before the Leeds game, they're not interested in allowing groups of WSW fans to congregate there as it brings unwarranted attention from the Fuzz. Anyone wishing to join the march, can do so at Phillips Park.

  23. 7 points
    Zopar, Lopar - what's an L/Z between friends. I think that Duke and Yeboah would operate in a quite different way behind the front line - much in the way we have been working prior to Majewski coming into the line up. The 3 front men can move and run off each other. Meier holding the ball up and laying off to Duke and Yeboah running through... It would be a modified style but could be effective given Duke's work rate in particular. Depending how Meier turns out (and we've seen nothing of him as yet) he and Duke alone match up to any of the top attacking lines in A-League. We may lack the very creative spark in Majewski but perhaps pace, intensity and desire from the other three will make up for something of that. We will need to play to our strengths, which do seem to be quite significant! Let's hope!

    That six again thing is a disgrace You are always told - even when I am refereeing - to play to the whistle. What do you do if you see the referee 'whistle' one signal and then while mid-play the referee goes 'actually no i've changed my mind' Shambles. I only watched 40 minutes of NRL this season - the first 10 minutes and the last 30 minutes of the grand final, but it was farcical at times. Also the circlejerk of OHHHHHHHH THE VIKING CLAP NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT WOWWWWWWWWWWWW gtfo and get over yourselves From the same bunch of people who think Blatchley's Blues or whatever the hell it's called think it's a "magnificent spectacle" because they handed out blue wigs and flags to everyone in the section

    A man goes to the doctor on Friday to ask for double dose Viagra. "My girlfriend is coming over tonight, my mistress is coming over tomorrow and my wife comes back from a business tip on Sunday night. I need it to help me perform all weekend". After some pleading the doctor agrees but only on the condition that the man come in on Monday for a check up as he was worried about possible heart problems due to the double dose. Monday comes and the man comes in with his arm in a sling. "What happened over the weekend?" asks the doctor. The man replies "No one showed up".

    What a terrible story this is and is being discussed at length on many forums at the moment.The wife of a US diplomat based in England at an army base killed a 19 year old teenager near the base gates after driving out of the base on the wrong side of the road. She was totally at fault as on the wrong side of the road approaching the brow of a hill. She hit the teenagers motorbike head on and killed him. The police contacted her and she assured them that she had no plans to leave the UK. She then however claimed diplomatic immunity under her husbands diplomatic position and left the country and returned to the USA, where she now cannot be touched or prosecuted by the British authorities. Only the American government could decide to remove the diplomatic immunity and pave the wave for extradition back to the UK. My view...she is a total coward without any kind of remorse or empathy for the family affected. She has chosen to hide behind her husbands position rather than face the music. A family has been destroyed and will never be the same, made worse by the fact that they know justice may never be had for their lost son. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-49945461

They are the ones who love to suck out water from the inland rivers, to beg for tax breaks & subsidies, who are responsible of gross acts of animal cruelty.

    Sat through this to see how many I knew were covers, how many not, plus see which were better as originals or as covers. Worked out about 45/35 in favour of knowing they were covers, though a lot of the newer songs I'd not heard either the original or the cover. Some hot takes: Both those Atomic Kitten covers ('Eternal Flame' & 'Tide is High') are abominations What Mr Big did to 'Wild World' should get them up in front of the UN for a crime against humanity Laura Brannigan is much missed & had some great covers (especially 'Gloria') 'Venus' by Shocking Blue surpasses Banarama's cover Wet Wet Wet need to be treated as per Mr Big re their cover of 'Love is all Around' by the Troggs Both versions of 'Sailing' by Rod Stewart & The Sutherland Brothers are top notch UB40 made a few covers more popular than the originals but not necessarily better The Clash's take on 'I Fought the Law' is superb, definitive Piss off Freddie Mercury FFS...woeful cover of 'The Great Pretender' 'I'm a Believer' is actually a Neil Diamond original. The Monkees version if cool Forget Nazareth's cover of 'Love Hurts'. Roy Orbison and Jim Capadli did better versions a-ha destroyed the beauty of 'Crying in the Rain'...check out the Peter & Gordon version for a better cover Rod Stewart did a woeful take on 'Some Guys'...check out the Robert Palmer cover Phil Collins & his two covers ('You Can't Hurry Love' & 'True Colours'...see Atomic Kitten Who the fook is Sandra & why did she butcher 'Ever Lasting Love'? Always thought Janis Joplin did the definitive take on 'Piece of my Heart' but there's a great live cover by The Move Harry Nilson ALWAYS with his version of 'Without You'...piss off Mariah Carey Knew of the links between Mamas & The Papas & Barry McGuire but had no idea re his original version of 'California Dreaming' Johnny Cash just blows away the Nine Inch Nails original of 'Hurt' That Leo Sayer's 'More than I Can Say' is a cover of a Buddy Holly & The Crickets original is a real surprise Take That's version of the Bee Gee's 'How Deep is Your Love'...see my previous point re Mr Big The Supremes always have the better originals Joan Jett's cover of 'I Love Rock'n'Roll' is definitive That's an intriguing duo of the original by Neil Young & cover by Saint Etienne of 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart' Guns & Roses cover of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door'...see Mr Big & Take That Everyone should know JJ Cale's original of 'Cocaine' rather than the Clapton cover. 'The House of the Rising Sun' will always be defined by The Animals cover

Ill save that for Monday when I follow up with the Lord Mayor as to why he apparently sings for Wanderers but has a GWS banner hanging off the town hall. That banner is no co-incidence, I'm willing to bet it was paid for by the Midgets and hung to taunt us at our season launch party.

    At a guess I'd say that MB has turned up the volume, they are going into the one-on-ones in training with more intensity. Taurus my be able to shed light on that. Up until the majewski injury we were on track, had all players back on the pitch. I expect a nearly full strength squad against ccm in Rd 1. But I am an optimist when it comes to these things.

    We’re ‘overly sensitive’ because 2 seasons in a row we’ve had big players get their recovery ballsed up. We can only assume the Bridge issue was a cock up because the club consistently said he would be ready, and he wasn’t. Just like I’ve heard constantly that Ziggy was ready, and that clearly isn’t the case. Seems a lot like if we ignore certain injuries and chalk the rest up to the risks of football, there’s no pattern of injuries. Im not trying to attack anyone, but at some point the bad luck starts to raise eye brows
