Re: Coaching Movements

why would you want to be involved with a club ( WA ) or a coach ( TJ ) who operate like that ? Trouble with the women's game in SA is lack of loyalty, from some players and clubs - irony former SI coach is now involved at Metro. If the players and coach at SI are not hurting they should be - coming ...

Re: Australia & New Zealand to host FIFA Women's World Cup 2023

why does it need an upgrade ?
average attendance for women's world cup qualifying match is between 10,000 -12,000
why spend all that money for a one off event, even if Matildas end up in the group that play here
a packed stadium every game makes for great atmosphere, whoever gets to play here.
