Really.... Last two weeks have been the worst performances I've seen in a few years from the Lady Reds.

Re: NTC challenge

Continuity paying off! Correct me if I'm wrong but these girls have come through STIC, u13's, u15's and now NTC. Results at all national tournaments have been steadily improving over the last few years, actually since FFSA took over the programs. Congrats to the coaches for their involvement, from S...

Re: Player "Poaching"

Is it really poaching if the players are not contracted to a club? Basically at the end of any season, surely all players are 'free agents' and can be approached by anyone or any club. Unless anyone has been signed on a two or three year contract surely this is not poaching it is simply recruiting p...

Re: AUFC 1 - 2 SFC

Most important is that Bubs sticks around!!! the single biggest difference this year compared to ALL other seasons is that The Lady reds have had a decent keeper. I'd say she has been worth 3 or 4 goals every game this year and if it wasn't for her this season would have been the same as every other...

Re: DE masterminds MV worst ever loss to Sydney

Does DE get the whole year to work with the Victory team?

Is it that different in Victoria to here in SA? Do the players not play club football in the winter?

Didn't Mulvey also start with 4 losses at the start of last season?

No Macri, Cassie, MJ, yet LOTS of interstate signings..? I would have thought if fit quick players were being looked for Macri would have been an obvious choice? Izzy Scalzi another?

Did SA girls not want to play or just not selected?

Re: Lady reds

NO! SASI included a younger group but continued to run the senior group right up until it was disbanded.

SASI in my opinion got very lazy in the last few years of its running and probably needed to go but i do agree the older players, 18+ do need a program as well as the younger NTC players.
