  1. I'm all for a bigger competition but we're going to have a 12 team competition (eventually) with exactly half the teams coming from just 2 cities.
  2. I still don't think there is room for a 3rd team in Sydney. The current 2 teams have less than 30000 members combined.

    Josh Risdon

    From SMH. Few migrant groups have provided more to the Socceroos than the Croatians and there is set to be one more in the national team very soon. Fullback Josh Risdon is understood to be in the process of gaining his Croatian passport having applied on the grounds of his ancestry. The Wanderers defender has Croatian heritage through his mother's side to the Balkan nation and has explored gaining his citizenship in hope of gaining a move to Europe. With Croatia recently admitted into the European Union, a passport would open doors for Risdon to move freely to almost any club on the continent. It's understood Risdon was close to sealing a move to a British club during the off-season but hadn't played enough games for Australia over the past two years to gain a work permit. Should he be included in the Socceroos' squad for the Asian Cup, it's likely he will be free to play in the UK and Europe by the end of the season.

    Describing Rhyan Grant's hair style - "Tony Vidmar at the front, Aurellio Vidmar at the back". Too funny!

    VAR & FFA Must Go After Derby Disgrace

    You do realise that I just copied the whole thing from https://www.a-league.com.au/news/whistle-round-2-VAR-referee-decisions-aleague.

    VAR & FFA Must Go After Derby Disgrace

    https://www.a-league.com.au/news/whistle-round-2-VAR-referee-decisions-aleague Law 11 of FIFA Laws of the Game states “In situations where a player moving from, or standing in, an offside position is in the way of an opponent and interferes with the movement of the opponent towards the ball this is an offside offence if it impacts on the ability of the opponent to play or challenge for the ball.” In this incident when the ball is played to Josh Risdon, Jaushua Sotirio is in an offside position. Sotirio is in the way of Michael Zullo and interferes with his movement towards the ball. It is an offside offence because it impacts on Zullo’s ability to challenge for the ball. The VAR recommends an On Field Review. The referee reviews the footage and he disallows the goal. Although this technically is the correct decision, having listened to people in the game since Saturday night, we agree that the VAR should have a higher threshold for clear and obvious errors to get the balance right. The VAR should avoid intervening in subjective and technical decisions which are not clearly and obviously wrong and leave those decisions to the on-field match officials. The VARs have been instructed to apply this position in future.

  13. I'll change the subject: I was just looking at the NRL draw to compare to the A League Finals dates. There are no NRL games scheduled at Western Sydney Stadium on any of the A League Elimination finals, Semi-finals or Grand Final dates. Maybe the FFA have booked the stadium.
