  1. @Kitto, not sure if this will help your sleep, but I'll share what I do. I had been physically pretty active before Covid, so I usually slept well. But my activity level has dropped during Covid and there have been some worrying developments at work and often found it difficult to fall asleep. Then I remembered that when I was a kid growing up in Hungary in the 1980s, there used to be a nightly 10-minute exercise class on TV. It was to freshen up and your body wanting to rest for the night. So lately I started to do stretching / yoga for about ~15 minutes before going to bed. I just do it quietly in the dark on the carpet in the bedroom while my wife is already asleep. I find it works really well as it loosens and relaxes the body and I fall asleep easier. All the best, I wish you well.
  2. Look out for the email from the Club in your email inbox. It has a link to Ticketek and a 20% discount code for tickets in the Away bays. It's a good excuse to finish work a bit earlier on a Monday, drive to Gosford, grab a bite to eat and then walk to the stadium to see your team finally in action again. And if all goes well, you'll have a nice drive home, singing and smiling after a hat trick to Duke, two penalties saved by Prendergast and a red card to Matt Simon three minutes after being subbed on.
  3. WANT TO BE CHEERED UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS DOOM-AND-GLOOM? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . We beat the Smurfs TWICE this season and we took 7 points from them from a possible 9 points!!!
  4. 'Op NSW' will not be happening. Not even the FFA can be that dumb that they'd continue the comp.
  5. Finally! This should've been done at least 2 weeks ago! International medical experts and the World Health Organisation has been asking for this since the beginning. Politicians just don't listen until the impact they've been warned about eventuates.
  6. This derby was streamed to a stack of countries with fans starved of their local football action ... So does anyone know what were the viewing figures? What sort of revenue did that produce for the FFA? Would the clubs get a cut of that action? And importantly, what was the international reaction to the game itself, the pace of the game and the skills of the players?
  7. The pressing as soon as the smurfs had the ball was quite good, we didn't let them think too much on the ball. Unfortunately young Russell fell asleep once for a moment and allowed Le Fondre to sneak one in. But we kept going and trying and hassling relentlessly - I liked that. The quality of the crosses wasn't too good, but we didn't give up and got a lucky deflected equaliser which was deserved by that stage and in the last 10 minutes we kept going for the winner. Well done boys! COYW!
  8. Insignificant competitions like the UEFA Champions League and the basketball in the USA have stopped playing, but the Aussie A-League, NRL and AFL are much too important to stop and care about players' health and stopping the thread of COVID-19.
  9. No-one should be complacent and please take this situation seriously. Please watch this video (less than 7 minutes) and heed the advice - I found it very informative on how COVID-19 spreads and how its impact can be minimised if we ALL do our part:
  10. All registered players would've just received an email today from the FFA like the one I got that said: "After careful consideration and consistent with advice from the Federal Government, FFA advises that football may continue to be played across Australia at this time. We encourage you to read the full circular and take note of the guidelines." Their guidelines can be found here: https://www.ffa.com.au/news/ffas-covid-19-guidelines-football?utm_source=&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=&utm_term=1327762 The guidelines talk about "social distancing" - maintaining a minimum of 1.5 metres between yourself and others. This will be the perfect excuse for some of the defenders in my team, who have been practising this for years, never marking their attackers properly.
  11. My daughter and three friends would like come to the next derby on Sat 21 March. If you have 4 seats together (eg: family membership) that you won't be using, please PM me. Thanks!
  12. Tipping all home teams, except a draw in pissant town.
