  1. Unless there's something in the PFA-FFA collective bargaining agreement that says they can't be stood down for any reason the PFA response is extremely hyperbolic.
  2. He's got awful cable management.
  3. Oh good, we've now given every major role in the national setup to Arnold, a man who built his reputation by stealing players from Western Sydney, then going to Sydney FC and not developing any youth prospects while failing at every attempt he's made at winning a continental trophy.
  4. We have a billionaire owner, the club's survival shouldn't even be in question.
  5. Firstly, I hope you and those around you are staying safe during these strange times. We are in the midst of an unprecedented global event. We are faced with an evolving crisis that is affecting all of our families and friends, our businesses and our community. These are trying times for all, and on behalf of the Western Sydney Wanderers Football Club, I take this opportunity to extend to all our members our heartfelt best wishes on getting through this period. Our members are the beating heart of our club. During these past weeks the club has been inundated with messages of goodwill and we thank you for your continued support now and into our future. We assure you that right now we are fighting for the survival of this football club and professional football in this country. We need your support now more than ever to get us through this extraordinary time to keep our club strong. During this challenging period, we would like to provide you with an update on the current state of play for the Hyundai A-League and we certainly appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to work through the complex issues that COVID-19 (coronavirus) presents for our club, our sport and way of life. On Tuesday 24 March, Football Federation Australia (FFA) announced that it had postponed the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season effective immediately as a consequence of ongoing developments resulting from the spread of COVID-19. This decision was based on advice from the Australian Federal and State governments, consultation with medical experts and discussions with Professional Footballers Australia, our club and the other Hyundai A-League clubs. The goal at this stage is to reschedule games as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so in order to complete the season. FFA will review the situation over the coming weeks and conduct a further assessment on the status of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season on 22 April 2020. As a club, we will continue to provide you with updates as they become available, including what any decision on 22 April means for your 2019/20 season membership. We really hope to have uplifting news on our next communication. Once again, thank you for your continued support and stay safe. Sincerely, John Tsatsimas Chief Executive Officer Western Sydney Wanderers FC
  6. An A-League football club is in disgrace after two players broke their coronavirus quarantine, were spotted in a golf cart and allegedly drove shirtless on a busy Sydney road with police alleging the driver was drunk. The Daily Telegraph can reveal Wellington Phoenix and New Zealand international Tim Payne was arrested by NSW Police for allegedly joy-riding in the cart at 1am on Tuesday on Wakehurst Parkway on Sydney’s northern beaches. Payne allegedly blew mid-range PCA and was taken back to Mona Vale Police Station. He is due to front court in Sydney in June. Teammate Oliver Sail was also in the golf cart but wasn’t arrested or charged and is not accused by police of any wrongdoing. Wellington was based at the Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen, while in self isolation to play A-League games. The pair is believed to have borrowed the golf cart from the Academy. The competition has been now suspended because of the coronavirus, with Phoenix players returning home to New Zealand on Tuesday. Concerned car passengers who drove past the pair immediately rang and complained to Police before a patrol car spotted the pair minutes later near Oxford Falls Road, about five kilometres from the Academy. Passengers who contacted The Daily Telegraph claimed the players were shirtless with Paine driving. Phoenix officials are furious the two players broke quarantine at such a sensitive time surrounding coronavirus. The team was in a two-week lock down so the A-League competition could continue. Sail, the 24-year-old Phoenix goalkeeper, is also New Zealand national representative. Academy management was considering further action against the pair for borrowing the golf cart. Payne, 26, a Phoenix midfielder, could avoid attending court in Sydney by lodging his plea from New Zealand in absence. Police eventually dropped the pair back to the Academy accommodation. There was no damage to the golf cart. A Wellington Phoenix spokesman said: “We don’t have any comment to make at this time.” Phoenix officials are expected to take serious action against the two players pending their investigations, while FFA will also investigate the incident. Insiders claim the pair could face a heavy fine or suspension when the A –League competition resumes. The Sydney Academy of Sport offers visiting teams training facilities including three playing fields, physio, indoor swimming pool, conference rooms, gymnasium and accommodation. It is the same training venue used by the Manly Sea Eagles NRL club. Wellington is running third on A-League competition ladder behind Sydney FC and Melbourne City FC. The A-League was formally suspended on Tuesday. The Phoenix has won 11 of their 20 games this season.
  7. looks like zorg from the fifth element.
  8. Xbox looks ~5% faster, maybe 10% depending on how much faster their GPU ends up being once it's released.
  9. They haven't. People are assuming they'll use the suspension as a reason to cancel the broadcast contract.
  10. The A-League has been shut down as a result of Australia wide lockdowns & border closures. A week and a half after the A-League went behind closed doors, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has forced Governments across the world to issue severe public restrictions on public gatherings, which have lead to suspensions of all levels of sport, which now includes the A-League. Multiple States have closed their borders and asked all but essential services to shut down, with the situation in New Zealand also playing a role with the Wellington Phoenix potentially stuck in Australia for 6 months if they had remained here beyond this week. The A-League had attempted to go on, including playing games behind closed doors and planning to complete the season in Sydney alone. These games and plans appear all for nought, as the rapid spread forced the closure of the league despite attempts by Fox Sports to threaten to cancel the A-League broadcast deal should it occur. No reopening date has been set due to the rapidly changing situation. If the closure goes on long enough to see the season ended as it currently stands, there may be a 7 month wait before the top flight of Australian football begins again in this coming October.

  12. It's happened at 3 different shops!
  13. It wasn't out of date but it had gone bad.
  14. Dutton's been acting like king **** and actually wanted to become PM because of how popular he thought he was for using military radar planes & patrol boats to detect refugees and turn them back to Indonesia but the moment there's a real physical threat to the country he and his shitty American propaganda gimmick Border Force are needed they go awol and will have contributed to actual real deaths of our citizens. If he had any shred of ethics he'd resign or be pushed out by the PM, but neither of them have an ethical bone in their bodies so that's never going to happen.
  15. Smithies reporting A-League to be halted tomorrow morning.
  16. That's it. No more buying Chorizo. The last 3 times I've tried they've all been off when tried to cook them.
  17. It's either that or 'Operation NSW' is happening.
  18. FFA announcement tomorrow morning. Pretty much certain A-League is done.
  19. He probably hopes the NRL will collapse and his rugger can get back to #1 in NSW.
  20. I imagine the only reason they aren't shut now is because they need to work out (like Britain just did) how to support children of people who can't stay home because of their job.
  21. Perth vs Western United postponed.
  22. I once helped the only policeman on Lord Howe Island move there. I can only imagine the backup required if WSW played an away game there.
