  • Operation A-League: Fairfield Advance


    Football Federation Australia this month announced the formation of the Western Sydney A-League club and last Thursday hundreds of soccer fans and professionals met at Mounties to discuss the new team’s name, colours and logo.


    Mr Sartoretto said the under-utilised Fairfield Showground was the ideal location for an A-League team with the potential for the construction of a new stadium that could form the basis of a new entertainment hub for the west.


    “The transport links from the showground are great with the T-way, a new shuttle bus service, the road links are all here and there is a lot of area here that can be developed,†he said.

    • One thing I am thankful for in relation to coming from Middlesbrough is the multiculturalism. It is not a traditional English town. Pre 1860 there was nothing there but empty fields and a farm, the town was built on immigration, straight grid roads and no building older than 100 years, the heritage is in the industry, hard graft and the people who moved there to have a go, the Irish to begin with, then the people from India, Pakistan and more recently Africa. When I was at primary school in the mid 80's we went on an exchange to spend a week at a muslim school, that was the mid 80's! People are only shouting about this kind of thing now. The only thing ant annoyed me was the fact that the local takeaways back then did an anglo version of their home food because back then they thought no one would like the real traditional stuff. Therefore it was omelette and chips from a chinese takeaway lol The curry from the Indian takeaway would taste much like Sunday roast gravy. It was only from the mid 90's on wards that this changed.
    • Looks like May ended a week early in the UK.
    • How hard would ot be to insert mid week games to fit those 3 weeks. F***, we do it over January already don't we?  I swear that the ffa are on the afl's books. No other explanation...
