  1. Re. the pitch, hopefully it’s not going to be a long, long time until it’s back to spec. But, at worst, the reputation of the ground as a premier location will still be standing, better than it ever did, after the concert. #itriedtoohard #butillstandbymyeffort
  2. https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2019-06-12/afl-denies-crack-down-on-crowd-behaviour/11198746?pfmredir=sm TLDR - AFL fans complaining about football-like treatment of fans in the stands. I actually don’t mind if people are ejected for abusing the officials (even if those comments seem a little soft), but barracking loudly? I guess the powers that be are extending the football treatment to other sports, not relaxing the unnecessarily tight standards at A-League games.
  3. I’m still one of the few people to feel some sympathy for Gallop? He takes hospital pass after hospital pass for the Board, yet more often than not he’s the only one people commenting online want to see fired (as though any other CEO would be different with a Board like the FFA).
  4. Bloody Popovic. Couldn’t stand the idea of a player wanting to test themselves overseas one more time at the expense of ‘his’ club, then Popa pisses off overseas himself, abandoning our club, on the very eve of a season in order to test himself in Europe. Selfish [insert whatever word you as the reader think is is appropriate here]. Edit: I will always be bitter about this!
  5. I’d prefer a sustainable club AND a sustainable league, not a club where the owners piss their money against the wall for the amusement of the hordes in the stands, which would likely see the league go down in flames sooner rather than later, too. Some commitment on the pitch, and some skilled players with the odd foreign surprise packet, and I will be happy with the squad.
  6. What the hell was that from Santalab?!? Sydney FC deserve it after that!
  7. It was a fair call in my mind, the offside call being so close that you couldn’t call it a clear and obvious error. I’d be pissed if it went against the Wanderers or any other teams I support, but it would still be the right call.
  8. Leeds game. It’s a ridiculous pre-season friendly (and one that I won’t attend!), but at the same time the club needs to have a fair chunk of the senior squad settled in order to avoid any more unnecessary embarrassment (some here may not care about the unfavourable headlines, but they will bite).
  9. That was entertaining. Good to see Perth in a grand final once again, and a packed stadium out in the west. On that, what was the final crowd figure?
  10. Bloody hell, I’m sick and tired of these pathetic pissing contests. The stadium wouldn’t have been rebuilt had it not been for all parties establishing the case, even if it may have been more the NRL rather than Parra themselves in the case of rugby league.
  11. On souvenirs, I thought about getting one of the zipper jackets for $50 or $55, but ultimately I decided not to buy one. True story; be sure to tell your kids! On the game, I spent more time on my phone that I usually do when watching games at home, but what I did see (particularly in the second half) wasn’t terrible. It was a shame to see Russell leave the field, but I guess someone had to make way for abridge at some point. Hopefully the coach gets the players he wants for the spine of the team, because not every team is going to throw away a sure goal like the Victory did tonight. Finally, I was happy to hear the announcer make a point about it being Valeri’s last game against the Wanderers/in a regular season A-League. He has been a good player throughout his career, and was quite severely knocked about by his illness, so he deserved a decent sendoff by the almost 8k who turned up to the game.
  12. Only 45 minutes of this bloody season to go... For those at the ground - Tottenham vs West Ham is the early premier league game (kick off at 9.30pm), and it’s being broadcast on the SBS app. Just another option if everything here goes to absolute crap.
  13. It’s so quiet we can hear Muscat swearing from the opposite side of the stadium. It’s awesome.
  14. It doesn’t look too bad, the new stadium at night (says someone watching the rugby stream from his seat at the Olympic Stadium... it may turn out to be a better game).
  15. Bloody Brosque! Might as well go back to Game of Thrones (just finished season 1; I finally buckled and accepted the books will never be finished). I could still keep an eye on the game via PiP or the My Football app, but that would just be a distraction.
