  1. Sack the lot. Over this crap. Poor Greenwood sacrificed to the worst back 4 in the league. I know the season is over but seriously?
  2. The FFA and their predecessors have plenty of form - I remember how Soccer Australia used to often schedule Socceroos games on Saturday afternoon when the amateur season was on. There was a suggestion this was deliberate at times which is just treasonous and if not, just inept - seems things haven't changed - see the free kick given to NRL/AFL when the "international window" was on and only Olyroos playing.....
  3. Yeah don’t get me started. I had a minor altercation with a AFL type during the week. A Giants supporter. He started trying to justify Soulless government contributions by saying AFL put in $50m which is crap. Then I asked about the joke ground at Blacktown which is barely if at all used by AFL now and council and state govt stumped up millions for it, yet our local hockey club can’t get them to build two field pitches for less than $300,000. He said it is used by Giants yet I’m sure it’s not. The hockey club have to travel to flippin’ Pennant Hills, Kuringai and Ryde coz of Blacktown councils recalcitrance....but if you’re the AFL they’ll bend over backwards.
  4. Changing the topic slightly.....apparently GWS have managed to get wealthy members to stump up for the naming rights for the Soulless Showground. It will be called Giants Stadium. FFS. And they claim to have 27000 members.....seriously....

    Just superb. A touch of melancholy at the end. Satire as it should be used - to highlight uncomfortable truths.
  6. Wise counsel as ever Flytox....but stop trying to ruin our fun - this is the Eastern suburbs and the SCG Trust we're talking about here! Any excuse to run a lance through that mob led by Tony Shepherd, especially given the way Alan Jones eg al have cited Hillsborough and tried to hide behind a smokescreen of "safety" issues, rusty supporting beams and flammable seats is always gleefully received!😜

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 2

    Yeah this. I don't think i can remember many players getting hacked down as often per number of minutes played than this bloke. You have to wonder if some of the injury issues are related to A league refs not protecting the forwards who get that kind of attention....but i guess that ain't gonna change so unsure how ABJ will go in the future for us if we re-sign him.

    Oh come on be fair....he set up Tomi's goal to win the first leg of the ACL final and he also.....um....well ok that's all he ever did that i can recall but that i will never forget😉

    Yeah that was some strike! Nice to see Victory copping one like that - teams like Newy normally save those for us!!

    Music Thread 3

    I notice that Stringer has supplied the band name but also you can go on the fbi site and there's a setlist and times played - I've had to do this before when the "hey grandpa" (apologies to Shaun Micallef) millennial DJ forgets or is too busy spruiking the latest experience to be had at one end of King St Newtown or the other..... Still a supporter of fbi - anything that encourages local and live music!

    Ah Mr Kuepper - saw him live a few times in the early 90s on the back of Honey Steels Gold - what an album - still one of my favourites. Unfortunately I was a little young to see the Saints but have their stuff on a playlist too. Thanks for posting!

    Defence? What is defence? Still fun for the neutral....geez Central Coast are woeful...
  14. As I think I’ve mentioned on another thread, we know Abraham and his Gran through church. My son has also had a bit to do with him as part of his work in the past using football to help refugee kids from a variety of countries integrate into the Western Sydney community. The family are typical of many South Sudanese who had to leave during the civil war and came to Australia via Kenya. In many ways these guys are emblematic of what Western Sydney can be and I for one am proud of how our often-maligned part of Australia has been able to provide such families with a second chance and a fresh start. The community is not without its problems, but seeing Abraham race up to his mate in the crowd after scoring that goal and us at home screaming at the TV, well I could forgive his poor first touches and occasional wayward passes and just enjoy that moment and what it says about our region and club. That’s not to say he shouldn’t keep working on that first touch though....😎
