    How long a drive would it be between Mudgee and Bathurst? Anyone?

    Sad it all has to come to an end soon. The world always feels a better place during a World Cup.

    PS I'm not sure that I can recall a Thread that has meandered off topic so far and so fast TBH. Lol

    Lol - I do fully acknowledge that those of you who were involved with the old NSL years were hard core , true blue supporters. No question of that. But for the first few years around here (ie on WSF) you didn't dare admit that you'd had anything to do with the A League prior to WSW. You practically deserved a bravery medal for "coming out". I'm still curious about who has never "come out".....but I suspect they probably won't. Not that it matters at all....it's just idle curiosity on my part.

    ^^^All the more reason to be grateful to your early-A League - supporting brothers and sister who propped up the League until the real action started!

    Thanks WB! Yes...it took the Wanderers....but what happened before was still important imho. That Perth game ...and the presence of the Rovers/RBB core was interesting as a starting point for the intense rivalry that was obviously going to erupt further along. For the real deal atmosphere...I was won over before I got to within about 2 blocks of the stadium for that first game of Season1 I'll never forget just walking along O'Connell St before the first game...and high-fiving people in cars waving their arms out car windows when they were stopped at lights as we crossed side streets. It was amazing! I really really hope some of that joy and intensity returns when we get back to Parra.

    Well you missed a birth of sorts! It was a memorable night.

    There was definitely a bus load of people from The Shed...with their cowbell!! And yes, you were in the Western Stand down on the fence in a corner bay, and they weren't far from you guys...and behind you. It was probably the last time they called a tour of duty to Sydney. I had a great view of it all! I don't remember the reaction of The Cove - but I reckon you "Rovers" supporters got in a few more ….er…..choice words that they did!

    The only good thing about a France victory would be that - as with Italy in 2006, we could say that our team took it right to them, and that we were unlucky to lose to the eventual WC winners. Other than that - Go Croatia!!

    Might have been cliched - but it all applies! Doesn't it? PS Glad you're in recovery mode...and that was a brilliant story, mate.

    As I recall, you lot all stood on the fence line in front of The Shed. They were happily singing their songs....accompanied by the cowbell ( I think ) … and then you guys started up in the second half!!
