Re: Coaching Movements

WA has and always will have internal problems. Intrinsic and part of their DNA. Problems are attracted to a place where everyone has an opinion and knows the reasons for problems. Ideas men. Majority if not all the supporters sit/stand on the sidelines and are quick to strut when their team is winni...

Re: WNPL ROUND 5

Brilliant summary I suspect Junior supporter will (as usual) jump in with “be more specific. Who and what hen where?” I think we see the game generally at a cross road and change in lists etc that has an impact. Regarding sportsmanship, I am sick and tired of seeing a very small cohort conducting th...

Re: WNPL ROUND 5

Did not see the game however, the tactics and "sportsmanship" exhibited by many (not only the very highly remunerated SI striker) over the last few rounds has caused me concern. wnpl players should demonstrate the highest level of integrity and sportsmanship and fair play. Sadly a few rogues exist a...

Re: WNPL ROUND 1

Many result predictions and team analyses. Excellent reading. Some brief and some with detail. Whilst early games are hard to gauge I think what we have seen so far is indicative of what lays ahead. Some may disagree.

City, Metro, Inter and Comets vying for second from Westies.

Re: Mitise Pre-Season Cup Round 1

Hopefully the heavy rain and thunder arrives. To play in high humidity irrespective of the temperature is wrong and dangerous. Humidity is the thing that does damage.

Re: AUWFC Vs Camberra

They had chances for sure.

Willacy did an excellent job in goals. Question is that given her selection into the Matildas and her W League form the last 2 seasons,will she be in Adelaide next W League season? I think she'll go. For National career progression and AUFC-W form reasons she will go East.

Re: Lady Reds In Disarray

Well said Sporstbird. Unacceptable rubbish. Many of our local players needed a long break (apart from Willacy and John). The Fowler girls are basically allowing ego to precede their abilities. Immature.

It's nothing short of a DISASTER and Mess. We in SA deserve better.

The Roar v The Reds

Only a win can salvage the Reds' push towards finals. Draw not ideal but at least a point whilst a loss is (I'll choose my words wisely) will make it impossible to make the top 4. Again.

How does this sit with the people on this forum?

I'd imagine it was promoted via the club's social media platforms. The question was not about the clubs. Rather the opportunity that was available at the Parks last Friday night to leverage off the excellent breakfast event the day prior. What do you suggest?
