  1. With such uncertainty, Western Sydney Wanderers' chairman Paul Lederer defended the decision to stand down entire squads. "Look, our number one priority is to save the clubs. That's our number one priority. These are unprecedented times, we need to have a reality check. None of us have lived through times like this," Lederer said. "The clubs are doing their best to survive, that's all I can tell you." Lederer said it would be "un-Australian" to seek to gain an advantage from the COVID-19 outbreak and hopes Fox Sports will stick to its contract. "We have an agreement, we have a contract with Fox, I firmly believe they should honour that contract because there is no reason not to, none whatsoever," he said. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-laws-allowing-free-agency-won-t-apply-to-unpaid-a-league-players-20200402-p54ghw.html
  2. BOSSI WARNING Western Sydney Wanderers have stood down their entire squad and staff indefinitely due financial losses stemming from the postponement of the A-League. The club is facing significant cash flow problems as a result of the competition's shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, losing match day revenue and sponsorship. It is also unlikely to receive the final quarterly windfall of the A-League's broadcast deal with Fox Sports, worth close to $900,000 per club. Players, coaches and administrative staff at the Wanderers were told on Tuesday they will not be required to work and will not be paid until the club knows when the competition will resume, which will be no earlier than April 22. The club and the A-League players' union confirmed stand down notices were issued to all players and staff when contacted by the Herald on Wednesday. The Wanderers have become the third A-League club to stand down its entire roster while the competition is suspended, following Perth Glory and Central Coast Mariners in issuing stand down notices. In a worrying sign for the future of the competition, they aren't expected to be the last. Senior A-League sources expect a handful of other clubs to not be able to pay their squad until games resume. While final announcements are yet to be made, sources expect Brisbane Roar, Adelaide United, Western United and Newcastle Jets to also issue stand down notices this week. The A-League is in a precarious financial situation with the competition and Football Federation Australia already preparing for the possible end to their broadcast deal with Fox Sports. The Pay TV provider is expected to try and walk away from its contract with the A-League if the competition fails to provide content for an extended period of time. More to come. Advertisement
  3. Oh dear... we're ****ed now https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/arnold-set-to-be-appointed-interim-technical-director

  7. First half we were ok but second half, we pressed very high the smurfs half and they had to defend deep, considering the players were missing, I thought we did very well, its a game we should have won based on the performance of both teams int he second half. The Le Fondre goal was just soft, give him time and space and he will score, its a shame that no one marked him in defence, our goal was very lucky but well deserved.
  8. He responded to a fan podcast and said he will be willing to pull funding of the club and spend his cash elsewhere, don't think CCM fans care too much as long as he is gone
  9. The NRL and AFL matches last night playing inside the big empty stadium just looked very eery.
  10. So finally the smurfs got a ref on their payroll to do this game
  11. I think we will struggle without Schwegler in this game. I just hope Baccus is back from his injury
  12. I doubt this is an organised crime unit but someone must have setup shop to take people out to the rural areas to raid the supermarkets https://www.2gb.com/im-gonna-come-after-you-peter-dutton-issues-stark-warning-to-busload-hoarders/
  13. I have a mate who lives out in Yass and he seen a bunch of people coming out of a mini bus the other day and they straight away raided the Woolworths there and left nothing for the locals like wtf? If people are going to go out of town and raid the rural shopping centres, I won't be surprised to see local cops telling the out of towners to turn around and f@rk off back to the city
