    Think Daniel G might show improved form in a flat back 4. Less need to go charging up the field allows him to concentrate on defence.

    Yeah he kept running out of gas at the end of games and that led to him being caught up the field too often leaving gaps at the back. A back four where he can provide overlapping runs as required but isn't the sole source of width on one side may suit him more. 


  2. Have Sydney FC really suffered?

    In their 15 seasons they've finished in the bottom half of the table 4 times (27%) and never finished in the bottom half in consecutive seasons. Their worst ever finish was 9th in an 11 team comp in 2010-11.

    In our 8 seasons we've finished in the bottom half of the table 5 times (63%) and done so in the last 4 seasons straight.

    We took a team that finished 2nd and made the Grand Final then blamed the move away from Parramatta for our decline. They took a team that finished 2nd and made the Grand Final, moved away from their home ground and won the double.

    So our 4 most recent seasons are as bad as the worst 4 seasons in their entire history and our most recent season had the same finishing position as their worst ever season. Every time they finished bottom half they made changes and were back in the top half again the following season. We finished 6th and the response was to finish 7th, 8th and then 9th.

    If we can take anything from what Sydney FC have done it's that big clubs don't tolerate prolonged periods of failure. They have a bad season, they make changes and they immediately improve.

    Who cares it’s done now, the permanent contract didn’t count for much 

    Im hearing that the A League is partnering with Uber as part of the new player contract negotiations. All players will be independent contractors and be paid via an app like those Uber eats riders 

    As long as the fans get to leave star ratings after each match.

    There's a podcast I may have mentioned before called It Could Happen Here which was released in the first half of last year. It makes the argument that America is closer to a second civil war than many people realise.

    The host leans to the left and says as much at the beginning, but he grew up in conservative, rural, gun-toting America so he's a lot less dismissive of them than a lot on the left, particularly as the urban/rural divide is a big part of the discussion. He talked about armed right wing militia groups, large scale relatively peaceful protests by the left, Portland being the site of a lot of unrest, issues around policing and law enforcement in general taking a side, etc.

    Not sure it'll get as bad as he predicted but he's called a lot right so far.
