    Not that anyone really reads this thread apart from Andy, Alex and Simmo... but fucking hell, nice goal by some bloke called Tim Cahill.

    also Grim me and you are locked in a fantasy battle right now. I had one more point last weekend, you've got one more point this weekend and we're both in the running to break into the top 10.

    COME ON FORNA

    I'm still not quite sure if Newcastle were good or Roar were shit. Both maybe? Either way great result.

    Yeah people have been saying this new signing might be a bit of alright. Remains to be seen for mine.

    In other news apparently City have roughly 2 million fans now.

    Impressively too. Perth were dogshit but Jets were on fire. If Hoole could finish he'd be a danger.

    Why did this game kick off an hour later than recent kick offs?

    Delayed due the heat. They were waiting for the sun to disappear. waiting until 20 minutes before kick off to decide was idiotic though.

    Jets v Victory has been postponed until Monday for the same reason

    To give you some idea... it was 41 at the original kick off.

    Today, it was 44 at the scheduled kick off time for Jets game.


    How awful us the officiating in this game?

    Grim, two questions.

    1) Why is watching the Socceroos so fucking frustrating?
    2) Why does Robbie Kruse keep getting a game (may be related to question 1)?

    Because we have a bunch of decentish players playing regularly at decentish clubs and they put in turgid performances for the Socceroos. Not at all helped by Ange's inflexibility or his insistence on selecting players that aren't actually playing football. Kruse was a great example - he made the squad a number of times despite not having a team. Brad Smith is the other... has played more games for the Socceroos in 5 years than club games or something stupid.


    Anyway, onto the best bits of the A-League... the 16/17 blooper reel.

    I for one am particularly excited about getting to see Massimo Maccarone every week this year. Well worth the price of a season ticket.

    Best ever start to a season... And a guy who was looking like our best ever import has a season ending maybe career ending compound lower leg and ankle fracture.

    VAR is fucking dreadful. If this is he implementation of it I would stick with what we had before until they can make it a smoother process.

    The time taken is just totally ridiculous. It was the same during Brisbane Newcastle last week.

    O'Donovan has just punched Bujis no question and the commentators are digging into Bujis for a bad touch and saying 'leave VAR out of it'. I love it.

    Now the pundits think it shouldn't be red because the punch "wasn't excessive force" and they're upset at Bujis for rolling around. He punched him!

    Fella scores his first goal in 9 years, heads back for the kick off and it gets ruled out by VAR. Ouch...

    Looking forward to Australia vs France that is somehow in the only game that is actually in our evening time? Well the others at 10pm are fine too I guess. Two England games at 4am, thankfully none in the 1am slot!

    Why are people here annoyed that some bloke who scored a couple of goals in the SPL isn't going but Cahill who saved you in the qualifiers despite being 89 years old is?

    Maybe something to do with him being a cunt of the highest order, storming out of the A-League in acrimonious circumstances, going on about how shit the quality of the league is then playing all of 60 minutes of football in 7 months before ending his club career with a 3 week ban after elbowing someone? People love what he does as a player but he's just a cunt off the field, everything is about building his brand.

    JMac will be another Scott McDonald. Tear it up in the SPL, can't deliver in a proper league. We basically needed to clone Mark Viduka when we had the chance.

    Non-football fans love Cahill
    Football fans hate him.

    Grim - what are your thoughts on the expansion bids?

    Fuck Nix off, accept all bids. Make best three A-League for 12 team comp, put other 12 in Div 2 with 10 year strategy to have four get promotion to top flight for 16 team A-League with plans for additional Div 2 teams. Scrap salary cap and let rich teams spend money and allow there to be a chance of Leicester like fairy tales for the have nots.

    Basically nothing like the FFA will do. Sydney team 3, Melbourne team 3, Adelaide or Brisbane 2 are my bets after they punt the Nix.

    I'd do all that, except keep excluding South Melbourne.

    But for real, I don't think a Div 2 could work just yet. I'd just accept Wollongong and Canberra for 2018/19 as they have everything set to go, then tell Tasmania, Dandenong and SW Sydney that they're in for 2019/20 provided their stadiums are good to go. If Nix haven't folded by 2019/20 then just take them out the back anyway. 14 teams, straight H&A fixture, happy days.

    However back in reality, please welcome South Sydney and Brisbane 2 because DERBIES!!!!!

    When he came on against Brentford he launched into a horror tackle, way off the pace and got booked after about 30 seconds so none of this surprises me but I'd have him on the plane regardless. I only have really watched your last few qualifiers but I have determined Juric is absolutely shit. Seems like Maclaren will get a chance now.

    Juric is a donkey. He's basically a much shitter version of Viduka. He's a worse finisher of chances and isn't remotely close to Dukes ability at holding the ball up back to goal.... but he's the best that we have up front, unfortunately. Cahill will be totally gassed, might get thrown on in the second half of every game when we are already 5 down so he can try and score at 4 in a row.

    Everyone's favourite RFF player from 6 years ago has indeed signed for Smurfs.

    Usain Bolt still on trial at Mariners.
    Keisuke Honda signed for MV.


    And Jets have no one. Striker out for 10 matches, back up striker out for 3 months, only other bloke is youth. RIP

    Today's A-league hilarity... header called offside, scorer stumbles into the goal and falls into the net. We've got a ten minute (At least) whilst they replace the snapped goal post.


    Happy New year's, fellas.

    I mean this with all sincerity...There isn't a league in the world that matches this one for entertainment. It might not always be for the right reasons but it's incredible.

    Peak A-League right now. 7-0 Wellington after an hour, now 7-2 with the Mariners getting two back just 9 minutes later.

    Apart from the Melbourne derby it was a pretty good weekend too. Loved big Bob Fowler's face when they scored. VAR is a massive dickhead though to be fair.

    I've got some work this season so I literally have to watch every minute of it. I'm very lucky.

    Perth's kit bags were lost by Qantas on the flight to Melbourne apparently. They're playing in training kits.

    Classic A-League.

    Hey Grim do fans of other clubs suspect that Western United is some sort of money laundering scam that will slowly come apart once this stadium is revealed to be in a perpetual Chinese Democracy type pattern of constantly pushing back target dates until everyone gives up, or is it just Western United fans that think that?

    I suspect they are completely fucked and it was all a property scheme that's gone belly up.

    Jets causing all kinds of social/political dramas now. They appointed the W-League coach as caretaker... which has people upset as it shows the club gives little fucks about the women's team.

    I think the bigger picture is that the owner gives little fucks about the entire organisation and if someone were to come and buy his licence for a reasonable sum, we'd be dropped quicker than you can say "China-US trade war killed the Jets".

    Seriously, fuck the A-League. Fuck its refusal to adopt anything resembling world football operating models, fuck its refusal to acknowledge the problems, fuck its refusal to blindly go against everything anyone has ever said. It's on its death bed and I don't see it being around in 10 years.

    Victory vs CCM on the weekend was an absolute fucking cacophony

    89th minute, Victory are up 2-1 and just need to cruise for a couple of minutes to get the win. Bear in mind there had already been two bits of VAR fkery in this game.

    https://streamable.com/z6coa
    VAR overrules the ref and pays a handball in the box for a penalty to CCM.

    Matt Simon (known floutman) scores the pen and carries on like you'd expect a flog to...

    https://streamable.com/h95r8
    ...resulting in a few handbags being thrown about and yellow cards being dished out like Subway vouchers.

    We're well beyond the four minutes of added time at this point, so you'd think a draw will do. However that is not the way of the A-League.

    https://streamable.com/5zma5
    VAR overrules the ref again and awards CCM another penalty. Matt Simon scores again. Carries on again.

    And for good measure, Marco Kurz (the Victory coach) gets red carded at the very end of the game for getting stuck into the 4th ref

    CCM win 3-2.

    Marco Kurz was then sacked by Melbourne Victory on Wednesday, 13 games into his tenure.

    Agreed. They've reached way too far with where they thought they could get to by now. And of all things that is eroding their supporter base it's the bloody NBL!

    Looks like Carl Robinson is the new Newcastle manager. A complete anti-A League appointment as he's a negative coach.

    Damn. If we had just waited a week, we could have got Marcus Babbel.

    Robinson basically for kicked out of Vancouver for using the same agent for all his players. The agent was sat next to him the other day at the game and six of the squad are already signed up.

    I'm starting to wonder where Western United's next win is going to come from. Maybe against Victory in April?
