    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.

  3. 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

    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

  9. 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

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....

    My view: today's presser is a game changer. The priorities have changed dramatically. Top of the list: containing the virus and vaccination. no more talk about the "economy" non more anti AZ sentiments talk, any vaccine is better than no vaccine; Brad Hazzard more or less said that in a national emergency it is our duty to accepting the minuscule risk of dying because of AZ as of today the federal government will be forced to redirect vaccines to where it is most needed; if food production and delivery coming out of SW Sydney stops then toilet paper supplies will be the lea

    We have to be mindful where our politicians are coming from. Angela Merkel is a scientist, Morrison an evangelist who believes in miracles. Morrison July 2nd: “When it is like the flu, we should treat it like the flu and that means no lockdowns.” 18 months into the pandemic the prime minister of Australia is still in fairy tale territory. Right from the word “go” COVID was considered a flu virus. But even though the some symptoms are flu like, COVID is a coronavirus. It will never be like the flu. It all flows from there. If it is like flu then we, theoretically at least, c

  20. So, do we auto-renew our memberships and trust them to strengthen the squad, or do we tell them to get ****ed after years of failure? I'm leaning towards the latter, because I said the same thing last season, trusted and had hope that things would turn around. I auto renewed, and was dished up the same old ****. How many years of this shite can we continually be forking out OUR hard earned for.?

    So, WSW have missed out on a domestic player, and the world comes to an end? Spend money and get the remaining three imports right, sign another one of the quality Aussies, have a defence worth the description, have someone up front who bangs in the goals, and the club is on track - if the coaching is up to scratch.

    I posted the ATAGI report earlier, either in this thread or a vaccination thread, but their conclusions haven’t changed. From the start their report has weighed the risks of the vaccine against the benefits of reducing the risk of the virus. Their original report included multiple models with outbreaks of varying sizes, and as the modelled outbreak gets worse the benefit of the vaccine increases while the risk remains the same. This changes the risk to benefit calculation and the resulting health advice. As I said, this has been in the report from the beginning. In my opinion the thi

  28. It would be absurd of me to suggest “knowing” what the intentions were of individual protesters. But the “spirit” of the demo yesterday was obvious. They weren’t just disgruntled citizens like you and I. There’s protest, and there’s protest. Compare photos of the Sydney BLM march with the “freedom” marches yesterday. Who was wearing masks, and who wasn’t? How many arrests in a BLM crowd that would be more suspicious towards police? How many freedom lovers arrested who, by the book, would be more conservative and police friendly? The attacks on reporters were tell tale. That was “fak

    Hazzard pleading that the other states donate their Pfizer to Sydney, reminding everyone of the “commonwealth”, and making comparison with interstate bushfire support. Well well. Maybe NSW should have been more respectful towards VIC, QLD, WA when they opted for hard lock down and tight border approaches in the past. The very thing ScoMo, Gladys and Co criticised others in the Commonwealth for is what they should have done five weeks ago to prevent this viral bushfire.

  31. My high school got a brand new basketball court/school hall because of it. As a high school kid at the time when it was being built, it was one of my first experiences of government actually doing something that benefited me personally and one that I could see with my very own eyes To this day, it is still used. Also really, Rudd-Gillard-Rudd is just as bad as Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison in terms of backstabbing, so let's be fair here And don't even get me started on what the LNP did with the NBN.

  33. 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.

  34. I understand people having loyalty to the club, wanting to maintain foundation memberships, loving going to the football with friends and family etc. I too had all those things. But there came a point where it became untenable for me. There was zero accountability for any of the suits making these decisions year on year, and it got to a point where I couldn't support it anymore. Call me fairweather, but giving my hard earned over year on year with no improvement wore thin. The way the club treated players and staff during Covid was the clincher. I couldn't financially support them an

A group of people wound up by largely right wing media misinformation, protesting peacefully to begin with, then becoming more illegal due to a misguided belief that they are “right”, resulting in violence against law enforcement and the mainstream media, endangering the public.

    Last night, Dad had a fall while getting up to go to the toilet. Being dark, and he being blind (he has about 4% vision in one eye) and with his dementia, he really has no idea where he is heading, even though the bathroom door is about 1.5 metres away from his side of the bed. He hit his head during the fall. He's now in Westmead hospital. Has had a CT scan and it showed some bleeding from the brain. They've taken him off his warfarin and reversing it to try and stem the bleeding. He'll have another CT scan tomorrow to check the success of that. Saddest thing is that no one can visit him.

I'm past getting hyped up and would rather see what is delivered on the field when the competition starts then rumours in a squad thread that did or didn't happen. I'm not confident that CR will deliver if last season is a guide but as always it's really a wait and see thing as it is with all teams. Will always be red and black though whatever happens.

Suggests once ikon knew popa was keen his mind was made up it just took time to work through details, if anything WSW might have given him a few more dollars… Ikon would have been good, alas not to be. For all the rumours of everyone hating popa seems wherever he goes their is no shortage of players wanting to play for him. given his a Sydney boy obviously still wasn’t enough to lure him.

  49. Been trying to organise vaccinations for myself, Balks and his brother this past couple of weeks. Was trying to book appointments at GP's, hubs, respiratory clinics etc. Nobody has any availability for Pfizer until September/October. Managed to find a GP in Penrith who had appointments for August 24th. I got a tip-off from my sister who is a frontline medical worker that a medical centre in Rooty Hill was doing a strictly limited walk-in run of Pfizer vaccinations on Monday morning from 8am. So like any good Aldi special buys sale, we loaded into the car early at 7am and drove over there
