  1. You can only buy members' tickets. The idea of buying two at a time is that my wife and I were able to get two tickets in one order, but only by quoting the two "magic words". Otherwise we might have been sitting on opposite sides of the stadium. - Michael
  2. Strip club? In Melbourne? Sheesh - all you'll get is recycled politicians! - Michael

    Showed great strength and composure. Syd FC fans must be spewing he did sweet F all for them for his time there. Maybe Syd FC fans should be spewing that their coaches couldn't do what Popa's done with Bridgey! First comp goal, first away goal, first hat-trick, last night's gem . . . it's all coming together for him (or he's all coming together for it, or somthing). - Michael
  4. But sometimes "doing nothing" is the right response. I teach business communication (among other things) at Macquarie Uni. I stress to students that, when considering how to deal with any issue (challenge, opportunity, whatever), "doing nothing" is always an option. Not often the best option, but always an option. In this case, it's a very attractive option.
  5. Some great stories in this thread. Here's part of mine. I'm a Wimbledon lad, and was mightily p***ed off when the Dons' owners got away with the franchise, moving to Milton Keynes. So p***ed off, in fact, that I switched off from lower-level UK football. I didn't even know about the reborn club, AFC Wimbledon, until my younger stepson gave me an AFCW shirt. I've just finished reading a book just put out by AFCW, "This is Our Time" - tells the story of the move to MK and the rebirth and rise of the club since. The interesting thing is this. Although the circumstances couldn't have been more different, both AFCW and WSW are "new-old" teams who were created because their areas had been neglected (WSW) or just plain shafted (AFCW). AFCW was created BY the fans; WSW really feels as though it was created FOR the fans. Both have wonderful (wanderful!) sets of supporters, excellent relationships with those supporters, and a great sense of pride in what they are and what they represent. I'm on the edge of my seat about AFCW because they are bottom of their table. To balance the ledger, I'm stoked about WSW because they are third and running hot. But the real balance is that I love both clubs - because I share that pride in what they are and what they represent.
  6. Signed. The sad story of AU does underline the great work done not only by Shaun Mielekamp but many of the RBB people themselves.
  7. Interesting that everyone remembers Aloisi's goal that secured qualification; for me, it's Schwarzer's two saves that won it. (Not that I don't acknowledge the goal - he could have missed . . . ) - Michael
  8. Remember Juninho? Great players need top-flight players around them, to feed them and feed off them. Once the penny drops that ADP on his own isn't going to win all the silverware, the novelty will wear off. Millions down the gurgler . . . - Michael
