Re: WNPL Grand Final 2020

Lucrative three year player contracts? That’s funny. Ended up losing? They lost one game at full strength. By one goal. Won the minor and the cup. Completed the season with a goal per game average of 5.3. Whether Max was there or not had nothing to do with any of that. You need to talk to you own p...

Re: WNPL Grand Final 2020

To suggest that Metro had more of a team commitment is rubbish. Metro was better on the night. Well done. But I stand by my comments above. And to suggest that there was or is internal division in the City squad is also incorrect. They are a very tight-knit group. Sometimes great teams lose. Doesn’...

Re: Coaching Movements

I think its appalling to have parties from two finals contenders in secret negotiation with everything to play for, and then let it leak before the season ends. Some people got paid alot of money (for Women's football in SA) to get the club who was paying the wages, as close to the very top as possi...

If true, this means a deal was done in the second half of the season with everything to play for for both Inter and westies. You would be pretty dark if you were Santrac or the board at Inter.

Re: Adelaide City Appoints Max Primaro as Head Coach

A lot of diplomacy shown on this subject. I'll add my 2 cents. Like it or not, the appointment isn't sitting well with people at city. Not matter how you dress it up, people at city aren't convinced that this was a good move. My views are that city may not be able to offer the $$$$$$$$$$$$ it once ...

Re: WNPL Round 1

Friend of mine, who has extensive experience with the Women's game here in SA over many years, thought the goal was arguably the best strike they had seen at this level, given the execution and technical difficulty required.

Does anyone have footage?

Re: Bosa

Unless Jets fielded ineligble players, you struggle what to think why the game is 'in dispute'???

With the team BOSA 'acquired', they should have won Saturday Div 1 by 10 points, so we get the disappointment, but they should take Saturday's loss on the chin and with a bit of grace.

Re: Adelaide United WFC Coaches

Maybe it's best to ask those players who didn't actually agree to join, rather than those who did.

Those who did agree, have alot more to lose, especially if someone gets the lady reds coaching gig.

But as they say, 'all's fair in love and in war' I guess.

Re: Adelaide United Women's Football Club to Enter the WNPL

For Adelaide United to enter a team at this point and take 16 of the best players out of competing clubs (and without any compensation) is a short sighted idea. Adelaide United is a standalone club, albeit that their senior men's side compete in the A League. If they want to enter into the WNPL, the...

Aside from the walk out of key WNPL players, also hearing quite a few players and coaches from Reserves to u15's are on the move. City may well struggle to meet the WNPL criteria for 2017.

Just a 3 point penalty for misleading promises that you made the WNPL criteria? Talk about a slap on the wrist.
