Re: Maria ‘Cote’ Rojas joins Vipers FC

TK at WA? Will end in tears for both. Looking forward to the big fella from WA wearing the stewards vest shouting criticisms and venting anger across the pitch towards the coaching bench. It will be a disgrace if TJ encourages players to leave SI for WA. Sadly the players who do move across are blin...

Re: WNPL Grand Final 2020

two of the power houses of the WNPL once again do battle for the championship. On paper and based on results this and past season places city as favourites to win. Metro not to be underestimated. How its has extracted so much from the players headed towards the end of their careers is something to m...

Re: Coaching Movements

Yes I know that kind of crap happens however, the whole situation is very port for tracey an...

Re: Coaching Movements

Tracey has had previous issues with player dissent at Uni. She then departed. White City was the next port of call to assist in setting up their women's program. Then SI came about as an assistant/consultant. Then the SI coach was sacked and Tracey took over. Then the recruiting began this season an...

Re: Coaching Movements

After Friday night's games in the WNPL/Reserves I think I might need to add another name to the list of coaching movements. Under the pump is Adrian Santrac. Sad really however, he took the job on after Kev's departure in 2018. Westies looked ok last year and with a good start to season 2020 they lo...

Re: Coaching Movements

Yes I agree. It is a hard gig and many rarely stay the distance. I'm not mentioning the coaching changes as a point of "ha ha". It's a concern that reasonable people are leaving or being pushed out.

Coaching Movements

It's the time of year - sort of - where coaches from the WNPL move or or are escorted out the door. So far: Gone 1) Max P - sent packing from City. I keep hearing "Player power prevailed". 2) John Ebbs - Dismissed from Fulham with 3 games to go. Absurd Going? 3) Comets - Hanging in there but would b...

Re: Season review to date

Only relegation I would make is to remove NTC asap. They survived relegation last year. Albeit they are now out of the relegation zone, a club based team deserves to be in the WNPL.

Finals are coming

Season review to date

Round 12/ year to date wrap (sort of) City, Westies and Inter do enough to retain their spots on the ladder. Is it all for City to win? Only team that can beat City is themselves. Player power to depose of Max may have confirmed the team’s high opinion of themselves. Self-managed for now and results...

Re: Player Power vs Club decision

Sportsbird I'm not sure the clubs will take up the selection of 10 AC players to AU or FF SA. Why would clubs be concerned at selection? Is you concern about AC becoming the club of choice? The way I see it AC is currently at where Pezos wanted it to be with AC: Come to AC and you'll be a chance for...

I've heard the same thing. I believe the discontent started right from when he was appointed. If the standard has been set and player power prevails then you've got to be prepared for what comes next. The anger or disapproval should not be directed at Max. He didn't appoint himself to the job. Inter...

I agree Brewie. It's all good whilst the team continues to win however, as we have seen in past seasons, all it takes is an event that results in players exiting and it all falls flat. The only constant is the leadership of the club, committee and coaching panel. If players are the catalyst here the...

Hope everyone is tracking well and that you are all safe and well. And are practising social distancing and minimising outings. If we do, we'll be back playing soon and we can all get on with our daily lives and appreciate what we're doing without.

Thanks Marinos. You brought a smile. Jizz. Point is that the local men's league have clubs that over pay their players. Good if you can get it.

Pretty naïve for you to ask me for names of clubs who do. I think you would be far better asking who doesn’t. Given my experience represents a small sample size, junior and women’s fees have bolstered the men’s game fees. Ask yourself, up until recent times, how many players in the WNPL were getting...
