Hyundai A-League - Oz fitba
« on: October 07, 2016, 04:22:20 PM »
looking fr a decent barney on the telly tomorrow? BT sport at 0945 has the Sydney derby.
The quality may not be top league standard, but there will be no doubting the passion of this one, fueled by comments like this from the Sydney captain

“We go out there, and I’ve told the boys previously in games, we hate every single one of them."

yaaas....heid first

I love that, that's the sort of quote I want to hear from a captain, preferably ours obviously  ;)

Was quite an enjoyable watch and a raucous atmosphere! Enjoyed the near fisty cuffs during the game too. Some good hefty challenges by both sides  :thumbsup:

Sorry, Al. I just saw your post. I have to say that I really can't get into the A-League. Brisbane Roar are the closest team to me and they are about 600 miles away from me. I really don't find the quality of the fitba all that good as well. Townsville, which is the city up from where I live, used to have a team ( North Queensland Fury ), but they were managed by Ian Ferguson. So there was no way that I was going to follow them....

Been watching a few more 'nix games of late.  Highly frustrating to watch as I sometimes genuinely think I could do better.  Finally got a few wins and goals behind them now after an awful start.

Folk think that the SPFL prem is a crazy league in terms of fixtures and how it's run etc...A-league, are currently going through an "expansion" transition, where they're increasing the league from 10-12. Instead of waiting until both teams were ready, they've opted to have 11 teams this season...means each team get's 3 byes this season.  Clubs are also breaking away from the FFA, who much like the SFA, are a corrupt bunch of arseholes. Fortunately, it seems to be going ahead, so hopefully we'll start to see more active fan engagement again.

That's not even mentioning the TV deal...ours is glorious compared to the one FOX have for the A-league. They only allow 26 games a season, dictate when it starts (avoiding other aussie sports), and insist on every game being shown on tv, which dictates that there are only set TV times.

Anyway, i've thrown myself behind the local side, Wellington Phoenix. Been shit for a long while but last season got a manager who changed everything and then became a judas.  New coach has come from the winning team.
