  1. Its a new ball game because it will be 4 months since the last game so previous form may not continue into the last leg.
  2. Did not expect the voting as a bloc from every confederation. So happy we won and I guess the guardian article was right Gianni has been in a fight with UEFA and they voted opposite of what he would. Still doesn't excuse England...
  3. Concacaf still possible to win some votes from US and Canada if we play the game right. But if the UEFA article is correct we might struggle
  4. I think so as well. I feel like he is too good for NPL but just a touch short of A-league, and its where the Australian football infrastructure fails players like him
  5. A-league peaked in 2008 when Central Coast and the Jets still had great crowds, then the world cup bid happened along with expansion and A-league hasn't hit the same heights since. It peaked again in 2012/13 When Wanderers was introduced along with Heskey, Ono and Del Piero crowds were still not the same overall as 2008. They had another small hit in 2015 with the Asian cup and really nothing happened again. I'm not sure where we go from here we just seemed doomed to fail because we're relying on a model that only works for NRL and AFL. I think until we move away what works for NRL and AFL we will always fail. We should have been looking at what works for Super Rugby and Basketball to keep ourselves afloat, streaming independence should have been introduced 3 years ago so that FFA/A-league had distribution rights

  8. New Orleans and Miami are the big ones comming out with solidarity. Not sure of others
  9. So what's the deal with players? we had a lot comming off contract on 31/05/2020 was there any resolution. Is Duke still a Wanderers player? Confirmation of Schwegler leaving?
  10. Have you found watching K-league its pretty similar style to A-league? Its less possession based than J-league more physical and a lot quicker. From what I saw the difference between A-league and K-league is in attack they have the extra spark in attack to unlock the defense lines go one-on-one. In regards to crowds I think the speakers is good especially for players given the circumstances This is the perfect article to show what the problem with Football Australia. They are trying to get s*** done to restart but instead of being united to get the game going you have someone being unhappy because its not benefiting them. The obstacles are internal (dud Roar CEO) and external (foxsports) so we can't get anything done so much red tape and then we wander why the sport is going backwards. Compare this with NRL and the biggest obstacle they faced was from the ref union and local councils but in the end there is so much unity within the sport to get passed it because in the end they just what the game to comeback. Roar CEO should just be glad A-league is coming back at all considering the financial hole we are in. I even got frustrated with the facebook posts on A-league when they put up a Rick and Morty reference for the A-league comeback and the stupid comments people put in reply. You would think people are excited instead its greeted with apathy and negativity. Mate I don't care how bad A-league is or your point of view of the state of football I just care that the damn game is back and I can watch my club no matter how crap it is (atm) play the game in these s*** times
  11. Its better to walk away from Fox its been dying since Netflix and Stan came to the show, and its only getting worse. A-league has been suffering since EPL left and people start questioning the worth of foxtel. Unfortunately for now we have stick through because everyone is hurting and I doubt Optus or DAZN will want to have a look at A-league as I am sure they are also hurting. The change we have been barracking for has come too late and its all about saving what is left now.
  12. I think with the current situation it will be difficult to go for anyone overseas. So local it is
  13. NRL had to go through a minefield of stuff before getting to this point and are very desperate for the money but they still had a lot of good will in the media and deals with stadium and government to get back up and running. AFL has been smart and waited to see what NRL did and avoid the many mistakes. For A-league its far more complex, we couldn't get anything going until Foxtel gave their installment so that A-league had money to use to get back up and running, we are in a precarious situation and Johnson knows this the fact that some A-league clubs may fold is a very real possibility. Then you have the minefield that is the government both state and federal with the strict border controls and having clubs in almost every state plus Wellington makes our problems bigger than AFL and NRL because they aren't as wide spread. We were bleeding before COVID-19 with loss of sponsorship I am sure a lot more have pulled out for various clubs or renegotiated deals that means more loss in money. And I haven't even mentioned we have foreign players and coaches that have also creates another obstacle.
  14. I think its realistic chance this whole COVID 19 situation might make Aussie players more willing to come back home. Worth a go
  15. My personal opinion on Fink is that he was always controversial, radical and very egotistical. I remember reading them back in the day and geez he was really out there with some his views.
