  1. It is a typical CEO letter and I'm sure he wrote it with the purpose of not trying to piss off any one party. His job is not to be popular with supporters, sponsors or authorities. His job is to ensure there is a happy medium between all 3 parties and we are able to grow within all these areas. That the sponsors are happy and keep pumping money into the club, that the fans are happy and keep coming to games and that the authorites are happy enough with us not to issue any suspensions or put on extra security. If he finds this happy medium then he is doing his job. He is not dumb enough to
  2. The bidding process is a farce and is designed to line people's pockets up. The amount of infrastructure required to host a World Cup is also crazy and we are getting to the stage where countries are going broke and people are rioting on the streets due to the amount of money governments are meant to spend. I'd be happy if they just hosted the World Cup in England every four years. It is the home of Football after all and they have the infrastructure in place to deal with it. The number of FIFA delegates also needs to be cut down as there are too many pigs who have their noses in the troug
  3. I swear it, and I'll happily sign any declaration and contract, but even if someone offered me $1 BILLION to stop supporting WSW, I would reject them. I think for some of you, football is just a game. It's just this fun little thing you do on the weekend, and if you lose, you think nothing more of it. For some of us, it's our religion. It's in our blood. We don't just support a club, we live for it. AND I'M GOING TO WRITE THIS IN CAPS LOCK FOR EVERYONE WHO INSISTS I HAVE IT IN FOR LYALL GORMAN. I DO NOT. I HAVE STATED REPEATEDLY HE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR THAT. NONETH

And he wouldn't ever cause WSW any inconvenience at his desire to make money? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH He was good for the club, but that doesn't change he is a businessman first and foremost, and his number one passion is NOT Western Sydney Wanderers; it is money. You really have it in for Gorman too much. He ran the
  5. Zip I never said you were brainwashed. In fact it is the least brainwashed ones like you that suffer the most out of this. Anyway good luck with your club and all. Maybe they'll win a game sometime soon
  6. I often think that we should refer to the name of our region as Cumberland Plains. That way ESFC supporters will know their place and who they represent. Get rid of the 'Sydney' out of our name so they can really represent all of Sydney .
  7. This scouse guy is a comic genius. Try going to a place like Cabramatta or Bankstown and spewing out fascist or racist ideologies? Good luck with that. While I realise some people might see themselves as fascists (in some kind of way) it certainly doesn't represent Western Sydney as a region or WSW as a club. It is a bit like saying every Brisbane Roar supporter wants 'Mulvey Out' because a few years ago a group of supporters held up a 'Mulvey Out' sign at Suncorp Stadium. People really have to stop taking so much notice of what someone writes on Facebook or what a small group of supporter
  8. .......unless you follow the giants. ----------------------- P.S, tongue sticky outie smiley means joking. Carry on with whacking day gentlemen. I think in NSW we can all tolerate the fact that one guy might follow and prefer Football, RL, RU or even AFL. There is an acceptance that we all have different tastes. Sydney Swans don't cop it simply unlike GWS because they blend into the envirnonment well. One thing I like about Sydney is that they don't shove RL down the throat of any people who visit or immigrate into this country despite it being culturally the strongest s
  9. It's a 20 year plan because they have the money to make it a 20 year plan. The question is can they in 20 years time turn us into a bunch of brainwashed Victards (which is what they really want)? I don't think so. Enjoy living in the free Northern states people where personal choice and preference is embraced.
  10. Zip I blame the AFL administration in general who were so arrogant in the way they set them up. They thought that we would all just fall over and be so honoured to follow this team they were giving us. There goal was always to 'take over West a Sydney' and not 'integrate into West Sydney'. Whether you like it or not a lot of the failings are to do with the way they were set up. Should have stayed in Blacktown for at least a few years, should have never bought Falou and should have not played games in Canberra. The AFL don't see what what they are doing is just so wrong and out of character w
  11. I think it is well known that Western Sydney has larger South American, Southern/Eastern European and Arabic communities than Eastern Sydney. Our support shows in his way. It is more fanatical and more organised like the groups from these respective cultures. I actually think SFC's support is a more relaxed style of support based on (you are right) Pommy culture. More taking the mickey out of things and ad lib stuff. They probably throw some other things in but it really it is a mish mash of things. Sometimes sound ok, but don't really sustain it. I don't think we will have a problem with
  12. Australia is a country which hangs on to its strong colonial roots. Association Football has been around as long as any other sports here however it was always seen as more of a minority sport with large participation base. Played a lot by kids at a young age but not taken seriously by most Australians as they grew older. The traditional Aussie would prefer to play the more rugged and manly games rather than appreciate the sublime skill Football has to offer. With immigration and globalisation this has changed a lot however. The last 10 years has seen Football go into the mainstream and t
  13. I actually thought with the combinations it was the best Australia has looked in a while (at least for the first 30 mins anyway). Postecoglou is a better coach than Holger or Verbeek and it showed. Problem is that he has limited players. Still I thought we created around 5 to 10 good chances in that first half. The chances also came through crips passing and using the wide men. Leckie and Franjic were good on the right and we exposed Sth Africa there a lot. We also threatened on the left. I just think as good as Cahill is, he is not a striker who buries all his chances. I also think some of th
  14. Since when did one centre back have to be left footed and the other one right footed? Centre backs should be using both feet and who we pick on game day as our centre backs shouldn't be determined by whether they prefer their right or left foot.
  15. In that case if I was Anthony Golec I would spend less time on Twitter and more time focusing on my game. I think he got a 1 year contract to see how much he applies himself this year.I thought it was more a fact that there was no room in the squad for the aleague which is why he was signed for acl.... Are you saying he has already signed on for 2014/15 season?Apparently he has thar sort of funny man/comedian personality which may have led to issues at Adelaide. There was another thread on this forum where Golec on Twitter has confirmed that he has been offered a 1 year contract and he is go
