Re: WNPL ROUND 1

Not sure you can tell much from the first round- except for maybe that Fulham will struggle and teams will run up the score against them for goal difference. City was playing only half of their starting 11... several other teams missing players as well. It will all get real in round 4...

Re: WNPL ROUND 1

Hard to know how the first three rounds will pan out without the W-League players- here are my predictions:

Metro 1 - City 2
Inter 2 - Uni 2
Fulham 0 - West Adelaide 3
Comets 2 - NTC 0

Re: Adel Utd Coach to be Offered Further Contract Extension

BTK- I agree. United needs to step up. Sportsbird- you have made two assertions repeatedly that are false, and I take issue with: 1- that Ivan never attends WNPL matches. I know this to be not true. I’ve seen him out there many times over the last few years. And with all the matches taped now, how d...

Re: Lady Reds - Wooden Spooners

Another waste of a season. Fold the AUFC Women's team and put more time/effort and resources into the Men's side of the game. Did you ever think, just for a minute, that a lack of time/effort/resources is why the women's program is struggling? So, rather than resourcing it properly, let's just chuc...

Re: Mitise PreSeason CUP round 2

Why should clubs be angered by Comets putting money into their roster? I understand that all-women's clubs, without a men's club's finances, will be challenged. But just as the men are paid reasonably, so should the women be. I say good for them. Different clubs have differing resources in men's soc...

I cannot argue. PM yes...

I disagree- as a keeper, where better to showcase your skills than Adelaide? She is doing a great job, has lots of opportunities to showcase her amazing skills. I don't think she's going anywhere. But who knows? Yesterday's result was indeed disappointing. Most probably won't make finals this year, ...

Re: Lady Reds In Disarray

Don’t put words in my mouth- I am just curious. And not willing to sift through your many posts for an answer. So answer my question, or don’t.

I don’t think the current elite programs are producing players who are ready for W-League. So maybe on this one point we agree.

Sportsbird, which local WNPL players, currently not in the squad, do you feel have the skills and ability, and more importantly the desire, to play at W-league level? I’m curious.

Sportsbird- implying that there is disunity within the squad is incorrect. Do players have opinions about how to improve the team's performances? Certainly. But they are not 'squabbling'. That's the sort of rumour mongering that people object to. Your opinions about things are yours, and that's fine...

Sad Gal- I’m not sure you can call yourself a supporter of women’s football, or a supporter of the W-League, if you haven’t watched any games. Moreover, offering an opinion about a team that you haven’t seen play is poor form. Those of us who are positive have seen them play. It’s not just because w...

Re: Adelaide City Appoints Max Primaro as Head Coach

It’s about the depth of talent in the women’s competition. Unlike the men’s, if a group of talented and hardworking, aspirational players leave an NPL club it’s not easy to replace them. If a club mishandles its women’s program, it can go from top to bottom within a season. That’s why top quality fe...

Not sure that's what we're talking about here. And the City girls were not consulted regarding Max Primaro's appointment. They were not consulted, nor did anyone promise them they would be. Not sure where that rumour came from.
