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. Jaycody, That is pretty harsh. I understand the frustration, but we dont need to spend the money on the men. They just need to spend the money on the right coach. Ivan and t...

Heather Garriock as new Adelaide United Head Coach

Adelaide United should be head hunting Heather Garriock now that she will be a free agent at season end. Heather is a fantastic coach and would be a great acquisition for Adelaide United. Heather has the experience and knowledge of the game and what I hear, she has a fantastic rapport with females p...

Re: Not long before AUFC-W season ends

Then what happens? A- Clear the decks. Put the local girls out to pasture for a long rest in WNPL. And please. No more gold passes to NTC players. It's wrong and they're years away from playing at WNPL let alone W league. Billy the kid, I agree with your comments, but not all the locals. Firstly, t...

AUWFC Vs WSW

I will be the first to comment and say that lady reds were extremely good, confident and aggressive. Finally, Ivan has finally shown faith in placing Condon back on the wing where she should be and Grant at right back. That's a start, but a bit too late in the season now. Great to see changes made i...

Head Coach Needs to Resign

Last night I walked away from Marden Sports Centre unable to fathom or comprehend the enormity of what just had occurred. The lady Reds were extremely disappointing and looked extremely flat. They were unable to string passes together and had no-one up forward to finish off. Again, if it were not fo...

AUFWC vs Sydney FC

Again a very dispiriting game and yet again another disappointing selection by the coaches. I find it incredibly ludicrous the coaching staff decided to play Dawber as the main striker. Dawber is an attacking midfielder. The question has to be asked why the coaching staff not select another striker ...

Laura Johns who has been a consistent player not even selected on the bench. 2. Again Campagnale in the midfield 3. Dawber on the wing, she ...

Reading between the lines, it appears by your comments there is no current WNPL players good enough or near enough to p...
