    Look, I think the only reasonable outcome is to mark the game as played and just give us the 3 points.

    Maybe they were guilty of believing their own publicity. After comfortable victories over relative minnows, some media outlets (of all kinds) went overboard in their praise. Once again several players went missing for most of the game when faced with quality opponents.

    I would love to know what the Chinese supporters were chanting. We were sitting right next to the away bays. Now to my untrained ear it sounded like “No more pizza”.....but that seems unlikely As for the game, the Chinese women were very unlucky not to win that. Clearly better for much of the game and certainly the hungrier team. The turnovers from the Matildas were painful. And there were a lot of times our defence sat back and let them regain possession or couldn’t get back in time for counter attacks. We looked gassed after 70 min. Anyway onwards and upwards.

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    Not sure these fully qualify for wrgmg but off topic doesn't seem appropriate either. Aaaah, the "benefits" of new technology. I expect we all realise that we are being inexorably pushed and even forced to use and accept the introduction of technological versions of so many things, like it or not. All for the customers benefit of course. Some aspects of the changes leave a lot to be desired. Firstly an older issue we were caught out on & were reminded of by a friend's recent experience. Once upon a time there were Medicare offices where you could go to to submit claims. You could wait in line or just drop it off, you could see how long the line was to help with deciding whether to wait. Then they were merged with Centrelink where you could get a readily available form, filll it out and leave it for processing, you knew you could quickly go in and get the form etc. Nowadays, you line up, wait your turn, ask for a form, your request is entered, you wait until that "job" pops up on someones screen, the form is printed, your name is called, you fill out the form, then line up so you can hand it in, and then wait x weeks which is longer than it used to be. There is an option to wait to be served instead of wait for the printed form, time period unknown either way. Printing the form at home is not an option. I think there is an online option as well? Which I've used? Those less likely to cope with the online technology are also those less likely to cope with the added physical difficulties of current office processes. This next one is happening to a lady my wife knows. She lost her seniors/pensioner Opal card. Bearing in mind what I said earlier about being forced to use new technology including Opal cards, what happens next is mind boggling. The only way to report this and request a replacement is by phone. You can't deal with it online, or go to any office of any sort. So, she calls the number - yes, I can see you have a card linked to your pension number - good, please arrange a replacement - I can't do that because your husband was the one who applied for the card, as one of two, we need to talk to him - that will be difficult, he's dead - we still can't arrange a replacement for you - can I go online, send an email, write a letter ... ? - no! She gives up and calls again the next day hoping for a better result from a different customer service officer. No such luck, but she perseveres a little more. So, to get a replacement of one of these wonderful technological advancements, she needs to submit a paper form with attachments, she can't get the form online, it has to be posted, she then needs to complete it and submit it with proof of her husband's death to get a replacement card in her own name, which she will be able to use to spend her own money (albeit with seniors concessions). You must use the new technology!! However if you lose it we will use prehistoric processes to give you a replacement! Madness! She would have been better off getting some bloke to get on the phone and pretend to be her deceased husband! Aplologies to MathyouWSW for the length of this post.

    I feel like the since Milicic we haven't really been great and just going through on the quality of individual players. This of course was happening in the last year of Stajic's tenure that there was a bit of downtrend happening and the team hasn't been playing as well as during their height in 2017.

    Good analysis but I disagree with the comment about Emily Van Egmond. She starred against the lesser lights but had a shocker last night when put under pressure. Credit to her for the great goal but prior to that she was a passenger.

    Poor quality coaching by Milicic was the chief contributor. Or were they thinking about their upcoming rescheduled W-league games. For example, Heartle$$ Women v Melb Vic Women moved to Sunday. No such consideration given our W-League team in Round 1 with Amy Harrison playing 2 days in a row with Lynn Williams and Denise O'Sullivan travelling back from International duty. F*** the W-League organisers.

    Plenty of marine device incidents have occurred at NPL games in the recent past & club were put on notice, that they'd lose 12 points if it happened again. That would possibly spell relegation this season

    Wasn't this the NPL team anyway? Wouldn't apply to them, regardless. I think the club has decided most Aleague trial games are not worth the hassle of hiring additional security etc. Hence most being BCD.

    Home games get me excited, coz I get to catch up, eat pizza & drink ales with plenty of homies. Trips to Kogarah don't do it for me, sorry. Even Allianz lost it's appeal towards the end, but I kept attending. ICYMI, I've attended WSW NPL trials games v's Sutho at Seymour Shaw (Miranda) on Saturday & v's Apia at WSW COE on Wednesday, since the Derby was called off. I got drenched on both occasions, but the spirit & desire on display, made it worth the effort. Next NPL trial v's SpiritFC is at Christie Park on Sunday evening, I'll see you there.

    Thanks for that link Mack. It gives me a better understanding of the faults in Lomborg's arguments. What he said in Canberra this week has fired up some of the internet warriors that grab any "support" they can to push the denier case.

    Right wing grifter denialist 'do nothing' propaganda funded by the Koch Brothers and other major conservatives. They started by ignoring it, then saying it wasn't man made, and now they're saying we can't do anything about it. And this bloke is part of that. That it was published in The Australian says it all. It's not like the LNP & Nationals will suddenly do what the author suggests and "invest into green energy research". He's been pushing the same lines for 20 years. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet-oz/2015/apr/23/australia-paying-4-million-for-bjrn-lomborgs-flawed-methods-that-downgrade-climate-change

    New Wanderers Head Coach?

    I reckon stick with JP until the end of the season. I don't know much about the guy but we don't need more instability and won't hurt to see what he is capable of. He has the necessary Western Sydney pedigree doesn't he? And who knows, the working relationship with Muscat may eventually resume eventually at our club. I hated Muscat at Victory but if anyone can get a bit of mongrel back in the side he can.

    Yep im with Carns on this. When freindship stuff becomes such hard work i generally ask what my emotional investment truly is and might them make a decision to end the friendship. And again agree with Carns that as you get older your tolerance for bullshite gets less snd less Life is too short for unfulfilling friendships

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    It's only Tuesday and I'm already hating this week... So...I had my work conference which was a 2 day event in Maroochydore, we have one every year where everyone that works for the company nationwide meet/greet and have conferences about new products or updated models (some our suppliers attend the event, some from Australia and some from overseas). I was annoyed by the fact that I had to be up at 4:30am for our flight was which was departing at 7am in Sydney on a Sunday morning. (Bare in mind, even though I'm on a yearly salary wage at my work, I don't get paid for attending this event which is on a Sunday). They did the awards night (I didn't get one which I really don't care about) but the food was applauding (even though it's a 4 star resort). Entree was some terrible meat with egg that was pink...looked gross, I should of taken pics to show everyone Main was an alternative between Barramundi or Lamb (I had Barramundi and it had no taste) and dessert was a pear flavoured gelato or cheese platter (I got the cheese platter and majority was goat's cheese which I don't like). Even though it was beer, wine and soft drink on the tab during the awards night, they stopped the bar tab at 10pm sharp...I was in a round of drinks with me and another guy...the beers were $8... Day 2 (Monday) they handed out a sheet on which room to attend to throughout the day...my name was not on it. That pissed me off cause I was very close to just walking out, sitting by the pool and drink beer...but then I realise the beer was $8. Eventually, one of the managers told me the rooms to attend to. We left the hotel at 4pm to get to the airport at 5:30pm....just to get a flight which departed at 8pm, so sitting around the airport was kind of crap. But the other annoying thing was they announced they changed the gate we were boarding and had to walk from one side of the Brisbane airport to the other side. We arrived at Sydney airport around 10:40pm but by the time I actually got home, it was 12:30am and slept around 1am Remember the friend I mentioned that's getting married? Well...today I did the RSVP for it. I put my name down and my partner's name. He messaged me about 15 minutes ago saying the following: "Hi Matt. Just got your RSVP. Sorry pal, I should have made it a bit clear, but we are kinda not really doing partners unless my GF and myself know them well. Really sorry, Matt. We would all like to meet her at some stage, but I'm just trying to keep the wedding numbers tame" I replied: "Alright...no worries. Thanks for the heads up" He replied: "Sorry." F*CK YOU...YOU'RE NOT. First off, why the f*ck would their site where you need to RSVP clearly state "are you bringing a partner?" if specific people CAN NOT bring their partner? F*cking dumb. Secondly, I am sick of this friend, the other friend and his wife continuously mentioning they would like to 'meet' my partner one day when clearly, they don't and this could of been an ideal opportunity. I don't think I've been upset in a while.

    So the derby is on next Saturday at 5pm at Cromer Park. Hopefully Lynn Williams is back with her last game against Canada scoring a goal and giving two assists. Hope she can get back in time and brings her shooting boots. Smurfs will be without Foord and Logarzo after transferring to the WSL.

    Macarthur FC: Season 2020/21

    Anyone catch Tony Rallis on SST last night shooting on MacArthur FC and their poor recruitment strategy? He's had a massive dig at Sam Krlovic, the old Sydney United executive for the way how he has been handling signings and recruitment of players, they have only signed one player but they have missed out on at least 20 players, now they are getting desperate and they are trying to tap up contracted players at the Jets. Rallis also mentioned that MacArthur are all huff and puff, the staff and their academy are nothing at the moment.

    Archie said something similar in the Wednesday podcast this one about Jim Magilton where the bloke would spend 2 hours explaining the tactics and profile of the opposition and By Archie's own admission he just fazed out. Where as Muscat and Hiddink would barely say anything so there is something to this theory.

    I just spent yesterday and today at my sisters place in The Shire. She had quite a few different friends come over with their families. I can confirm that racism is alive and well in The Shire. Some of their comments just sickened me. Thankfully, I am back home now in the multi-cultural west.
