  1. Groups announced: Sydney and Victory will be up against it once again. Hoping the Jets can get in too.

  3. I'm sure the PFA will be on board

    Perth Glory: Season 2019/20

    He's had two more shots at it with WSW since the win, and didn't do too well. Obviously he'll probably have a stronger squad this time around, but it's arguably more difficult to win now with an increase in prize money there is a greater incentive for other teams to play stronger squads. I believe it unlikely that another Australian team will win it for a while.
  5. How do we pay for the increased squad sizes with clubs losing money hand over fist? How do we afford better quality players to raise the standard?
  6. I'd assume we offered him minimum wage and he figured he'd get more elsewhere. Perhaps that hasn't worked out? Unless CCM offered him a guaranteed starting spot and he went for more game time?

    2018/19 A-League Grand Final

    Garb is consistently shown to be a ******* moron and a sycophant.
  8. Surely it's because guys like Ryan and Vuka will be on leave after their seasons have finished? I'd expect him to be on the bench at best with Langerak being in season and his club currently second in J-league.

    Did it talk about him and the Afghan Mujahideen? America thought he was tactically useful at one point in time.
  10. That's correct, it's happening frequently enough that food outlets have been asked to stop selling them when a public event is due to take place. It's the least these pricks deserve, imo. Should be throwing paint, or bricks
  11. I don't remember him being very popular with the general public, ever. And he has always had his role in the knifing of Rudd/Gillard/Rudd hanging over him (he was one of the "faceless men", remember). He was far from alone in those decisions, but was probably the most public of those involved afterwards (most of them either went in to private business or stayed behind the scenes). With hindsight he's another Hewson type character. Very little natural charisma. ---- The vast majority of politicians would lie through their teeth to get an advantage. Power is what they crave. They're all reasonably personable and generally got into the business for the right reasons, but you can't stay in the game if you're not willing to lie and use advantages where possible.

    I've been a Batman fan since I was a kid, but I haven't seen any of the Batman related content since the Dark Knight trilogy. They just keep re-hashing it because there are very few original ideas in Hollywood. I can't be arsed seeing every different release of it as it's tired and stale. And agree with the zombie stuff too. George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead etc.) has already done everything that needs to be done in the zombie genre. It doesn't mean I'll dismiss everything, but I won't just watch it for the sake of it. But I'm also not the target market for most of these films.

    @StringerBellend This doco about Martin Phillipps is showing at Sydney Film Festival. https://www.sff.org.au/program/browse/the-chills-the-triumph-tragedy-of-martin-phillipps @marron I saw Propagandhi last night. Days beforehand, I thought it appropriate I'd be seeing them on Election Day. It was a great show, but not the tonic I was hoping for to alleviate my mood.
  14. The most successful teams over the last few years have also been some of the oldest (with the glaring exception of Brisbane Roar's retirement village team of 2017/18).

    @marron Think I saw it advertised on Stan if you have it (or know someone who does).

    Not available in Aus. Get yourself a VPN and Hulu subscription, torrent it or wait for an Australian broadcaster to pick it up.
  17. The club also actively tried to replace the RBB. Admittedly, elements within the RBB have done themselves no favours regarding treatment from the club and other parties, but it's not as if the club hasn't played a part.
  18. Is he really going to step up though? I agree with your sentiment, but there is always a percentage of players who won't make the transition from youth to senior football (arguably a larger number than those that make it). If he had shown enough promise he would've got a new deal.

    Glad the band was good at least, and I'm not surprised you felt that way at OAF. Great venue, but not for everyone, and can get too crowded when sold out. Wedding was good, caught up with some people I hadn't seen in a while and it all went smoothly. And no, it wasn't mine. ----- Anyway, back to tunes:

    2018/19 Champions & Europa League

    This one was better
  23. He's also two to three years older now (36 when next season starts). Should do well (providing his body handles the pitches and heat), but he couldn't be our starting striker week in, week out.
  24. Happy to see the club bring back more ex-players.
