    Centrelink recipients are labour supporters? All of them? Those who get parenting payments? Those who get a disability pension, those who are in sickness benefits, those who are older and find themselves without a job, how about The aged pension and bereavement allowances and youth allowance?

    When you decimate your own industries....ie manufacturing especially.....as a lot of corporate Aus did ( with the blessing of both major parties ) and go chasing the Chinese dollars so you can import and sell cheap(er) products via substantially lower wages in Chinese factories....... then you end up with the situation we are in today where the Chinese can do a lot of economic damage in a short period of time via trade or sanctions if you don't dance to their tune.

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

    Great news for football here in Australia! JJ seems to be the leader the game here needed so far, we can build upon this to get the game where it should be. We can only go forward from here with him at the helm, fingers crossed.

    The crap approach by the conservatives on the NBN just gets my anger levels up to 'I often have to say, no': NBN structure means those who can least afford it pay the most http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-30/nbn-structure-means-those-who-can-least-afford-it-pay-the-most/12397884 And https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-29/nbn-nears-completion-was-it-value-for-money/12380050 F*** Murdoch and his conservative minions Abbott, Turnbull and Scumbo

    That's exactly right. It'll be interesting to see what happens this weekend. For the record, and as a comparison, I have been to the Towers twice in the past week. What a joke. No social distancing in any way. Stupid humans just continually bustling past each other, crowding onto escalators and crowding the food court. Virtually no one adhering to 1.5 metre distancing rules in queue's. I say virtually no one, as I did!! It just disgusts me that it seems the majority a dopey people have learnt nothing. Very selfish indeed. Sad thing is, they'll be the first to complain if restrictions get put back in place, and no doubt, these are the people currently hoarding toilet paper for no reason. Dumb arses of the 1st degree. Enjoy your school holidays - if you can!

    So, is everyone's kids, or indeed, any other posters, starting back up next weekend? I remember seeing a rule a few weeks ago that only one parent could attend, and would have to watch from a car in the car park. **** that. If I was watching the game from my car in the car park, I'd be staring at about 1000 eucalypt trees and nothing else. If this is still a rule, and club officials want to enforce it, then I'll go incognito. If that doesn't work, I have a back up plan.

    Without a W-league thread for next, this looks like the best place to discuss our W-League team for next season. Apart from the 5 imports who may or may not return next season, 3 Australian players have gone Amy Harrison (PSV), Ella Mastrantonio (Bristol City) and fringe player Vesna Milivojevics (where about unknown) Looks like a major rebuild for Heffernan and Cannuli.

    I wonder aloud nay actually I do have have information in front of me or available to me to even pretend to determine if the following article is beyond foolish and raising the stakes or needed or is a wake up call.. What I can say is never in my life has are article scared me like this article has... I repeat without knowing why this has been said now and having the information as to why its impossible to judge only assume the PM is taking advise from some very experienced people. This article scares the **** out of me... https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/dangerous-and-disorderly-pm-scott-morrisons-warning-on-postcovid-world/news-story/ff769cf2e430d6dcbfe118d1fdca442a

    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.

    you guys will be safe, right man right place right time, i also fancy Luton doing a Lazarus Nathan Jones back there after his Stoke debacle. Would be nice to see a little club like Brentford go up at the end season (beat Cardiff in playoffs would be nice), share the love for the smaller clubs i say.

    Many have wanted to but with some of the performances being that bad, the club doesn't deserve us paying a $5k+ fine on top of membership.

    The team has been booed off a number of times at half time and after games the last few years (I understand that isn't exactly the same as what you are suggesting).

    Not that I advocate the Hungarian approach but The last few season, I find our sing songs jump up and down and applaud (As it’s a ESFC thing to boo) frustrating. The rubbish that been dished up over the Gumby, Babbel eras deserves a bit of good old Goodison Park booing and shouting of vulgar obscenity’s

    It does seem ridiculous, doesn't it? I'm all for social distancing, but you'd think the perimeter of a football field would be big enough for the supporters of park football teams to spread themselves out, wouldn't you?

    Yeah, this is why i'm kind of surprised about the anger at fox or whatever over it. Fox, despite the extension of their coverage to next year, don't give a **** about football. I'd much rather a scenario where Hill has left them and is a gun for hire for football, then one in which Fox pull out of their contract or even go through next year and then ditch us, and Hill is still there relegated to commentating on the cricket or the netball or some ****.

    I still don’t understand why Bankwest is even being used. When there’s no fans and minimal officials in attendance the facilities are irrelevant. If the NRL really wanted to save money they could’ve easily played at the basic suburban grounds or even used their own training grounds.

    Hope Simon Hill either gets a gig with Optus or FFA put him on a retainer until they get their streaming services up and running in a year or two. He's the voice of the A-league/Australian football right now and deserves another gig.

    I suspect it'll be a ballot where a portion of each membership category are picked per game e.g. let's say the first game back allows for 6000 people inside Bankwest 1st priority - 55% Foundation members (all tiers) Red members 2nd priority - 35% all remaining full season ticket holders (Black / White / General admission / RBB) 3rd priority - 10% all part season ticket holders (3 game / 5 game) as the Foundation and Red members take up their ballot for the first game, then the percentages might be adjusted again The idea being that every member can go to at least one more game

    So UEFA says voting for Columbia was about advancing women's foottball in that region. What about how amazing an impact for Oceania to have the football here in OZ and NZ? Arguably it needs the boost more. So sorry, their reason for not voting for the best bid rings pretty hollow to me. Farrrk you UEFA, football is coming to the Southern Hemisphere. All aboard the awkward time zone express

    If we come to that bridge then i think all AL teams if not most would want to cross it along with a handful of state team willing to find investors (local or overseas that want to see the game grow here to its full potential) and can compete (see FFA cup quar-semi finalist teams for example). I don't think they would want to be left out of playing even if this an NSL style comp as long as the broadcasting dollars and sponsors are there to support the game, it will grow to be even bigger than what the AL is I promise you that so long as we get rid of fox. Hopefully this Golden Gen Committee can do some good as well, they are on the right track with this FFA TV project. (https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/ffa-tv-good-to-go-says-golden-generation) Football is football, it will be loved no matter what style we play in though it needs to be for the community/people and not corporate (we are not america, thank god for that right now and god be with them)

    maybe i'm being a bit finicky but it would be good to see the subs names go up in LARGE on big screen who is going off and who is going on as the substitutions take place in real time, being up in the gods myself bit of an eye strain to the half flag other side of the pitch.
