  1. Another disappointing Olyroo Olympic campaign comes to an end. I guess it was inevitable that it would end in a whimper. After all we have a technically inept negative donkey as a coach. With a record of having failed at every international tournament he has coached at. How that creature keeps getting appointed as our national coach time after time is mind numbing. But then again we have the old FFA and the Lowys to thank for that. Their last parting gift to Australian Football. The ultimate job for the boys & a big F U to the fans and clubs for not backing them perhaps.

    Yeah, it is what was predicted with the way this lockdown has been managed up until this point. This is hard to say, but every infection and every death in this outbreak is on Gladys and Morrison from the approach taken in June

  13. These last couple of games also demonstrated the difference between A League and other leagues - even Egypt. They were stronger, faster, more skilful, generally. Even Dukey, is not in the same ball park of Euro leagues. His work rate and running game makes up for other deficiencies - his real strength.

  14. Yep agreed - poor starting choices as well. No doubt the loss of Atkinson and Duke, who were huge in the first two games hurt us, as well as McGree who was prob due a worldie, but geez Pieras??? Gimme a break. Arnie we play to win, not hold out for a draw - pathetic. I mean try all the psycho-babble you want - you need some technical and formational ability. We might be in a global pandemic and a period of history that is seeing some serious changes in the world, but some things never change - Arnie-ball and underwhelming performances are a constant that's for sure.

  17. You have to be extremely fit to play hockey. The level of intensity and amount of running they do is ridiculous. The top players are running 9-10km on average across a 60min game. It's similar to footballers but obviously they play for a longer period of time. It's a bit different at a grassroots level, but still plenty of running. It is hard on your knees and back getting down to hit the ball and tackle. I've played a couple of hit and giggle games and I was stuffed afterwards. I won't lie, you probably will get hit with a ball or stick at some point and it will hurt. I've seen so

    On a more positive note two of my sisters who up until now have resisted getting AZ have relented and will get the jab. One today and one sis will stay with the other to monitor for a couple of days to make sure no bad side effects and then swap so the other can get the jab.

  20. Arzani is still an enigma....looks brilliant in patches then rank ordinary for much of the game. Definitely needs a full season at club level before he gets anywhere near the senior team.

    Last week I was assuming that the number of infections would double every ten days. That formula would have translated to 125 per day end of July, 250 by August 10th, 500 by August 20th, 1000 by August 30th. I was wrong. We are ahead of schedule.

    Looking more like the Victorian lockdown. Morrison can stfu about gold standards now. Any, as i said earlier this breakout and lockdown us all on Morrison for failings to ensure all workers at borders were vaccinated. He could have secured 20 million Pfizer doses of vaccine in July 2020. He has failed

    What did I see yesterday or the day before with her coming 3rd in something? (my olympics intake is basically turn on the telly when I have time, watch whatever is on, I don't keep up with the news). (although I was just looking up the sport climbing time, Tuesday night I know what I am doing).

    Jess Fox going down the water run soon. Not much pressure then as 7 have lead in and out of every break plugging her these last few days, built her up to be a god, hope she does it now!

    The red line is the seven-day moving average. Total number of local cases since the start of the outbreak on June 17 (43 days) is over 2,800. This number has been increasing at close to 8% per day for a fortnight, so it’s exponential growth – doubling every 9 days.

    Ed, not sure but there are plug-in usb/HDMI dongles that run android OS ( What the majority of smart tv's use ) that you can plug into older tv's. Just depends on how much you want to spend. https://www.the-ambient.com/buyers-guides/best-smart-tv-streaming-sticks-boxes-devices-2621

  35. Agreed, Atkinson at the back was a huge loss - Deng was great as CB with Soutar in other games but struggled as RB. The defence struggled. No Duke up front as a workhorse and target man was the other huge loss. D'Agostino didn't have the impact needed. Arzani made a much stronger impact when he came on than in previous games and was necessary - should have been there in the first half.

    On target for 1000 per day by the end of August at the latest. Hold on to your hats!

  37. It was laid very clear to me why we were starting Arzani. The only one in the team that could hold the ball and slow the game down. And geez he was unlucky with that effort same as Deng with his header. Mcgree, Duke and Atkinson were massive losses for the game. The first goal doesn't happen if Atkinson is on the field. Almost shades of the Italy penalty for 2006 if Emerton was on the field Grosso doesn't get into the box. We missed the engine of Duke and Mcgree. Pieras was terrible and Tilio in the centre instead of the wing was poor as well. Should of just started Baccus so Tilio could

    Don't forget Fox Sports shoving him down our throats. He's only won a single trophy without ref assistance, the Mariners premiership, the rest were at SFC or the GF where the Mariners got the handball calls their way and Hersi was suspended. He failed every single time he's left Australia. J-League, ACL and with the National teams. He just doesn't have what it takes.

    Egypt use their overage player spot to bring in a keeper that saves them multiple times. Glover spills a shot straight at him into the path of an opponent for a tap in.

  45. 1) There is minimal accountability in politics nowadays. Happens at both State and Federal levels (arguably even local unless there are corruption commissions established i.e. Wollongong Council or Salim Mehajer). 2) You have a mostly compliant media who will sing their praises providing they enact policies that the media agree with. Rest assured if the media turned against any of these leaders, the pressure on them would inevitably be insurmountable. See the difference in lockdown coverage over the last 16 months between NSW and Victoria.

    Sounds so simple does it, and yet we continually get it so wrong. Is it any wonder the confidence has been knocked out of everyone though. Up to the club to start making the right decision and show us they are heading back down the right track, I see little evidence for that.
