Re: And then there were 26.

Well, the game was quite good and gave the squad a good workout, despite the opposition's inability to offer much resistance or threat in front of goal. Rogic was very disappointing, in my opinion, never quite got into the game, nor did Nabbout despite his excellent goal. Mooy, despite being named ...

Re: AFL Returns to Hindmarsh

They are not playing it at Adelaide Oval because it is a small scaled version of their full sized game. Would look ridiculous at AO.. and even they realise this. I think they are crazy to further dilute their "great" game in an attempt to upset soccer's popularity. If comments on footy forums are an...

Australian football returns to "Hindmarsh Oval", 113 years after the West Torrens Football Club set up its home on Manton Avenue So what do you mean to highlight?

Re: Socceroos are coming to town..

Let's be realistic. If the Wallabies came to town with no promotion, you'd probably find 10,000 at the game. When the Socceroos come to town with no promotion, you'd still get 20-30,000 easily. Advertising will get us an extra 15-20,000. I'm sure there will be a bunch of people on Thursday saying "...

By blood lines, he's proven wrong, as Hargreaves has English blood, but Cahill has no Australian blood at all. In fact, Cahill has spent very little time in Australia, the majority has been s...

Hate to disapoint some people, but Craig Johnston is Australian. Both his parents were born in Australia, as were three of his four grandparents. His parents happened to be on holiday in South Africa when he was born.

Check out his autobiography "Walk Alone" if you have any doubts :)
