Re: Rumbles in AUWFC Camp

Junior supporter,
Thanks for keeping my memory alive.
I must have left a good impression on you.
Unfortunately or fortunately, I am trying to keep out of commenting on this forum. Just reading.
Looks like nothing has changed however.
Great to see someone else take over.

Re: Cup Round 1

What a dissappointing cup round.
The FFSA needs to act on those clubs that forfeited and fine them accordingly and ban them for next years cup round.
It shows disrespect to the womens cup competition.

Re: Big Questions for WNPL Season 2018

Unfortunately the season will be between adelaide city, west adelaide and Metro.
The remaining teams will be below par and only two teams will fight for 4th spot. Adel Uni and salis inter.
The remainder will fight for survival not to be relegated.

Thanks for responding Sportsbird. I suppose then if Ivan is not going to coach next season all that your “reliable source” told you is irrelevant. Coyote Ivan has a two year contract. Thats a fact.

AUWFC board should be held accountable for the poor season and the appointment of Ivan as Head Coach. 2. Ivan should be also held accountable for poor player selection and poor coachi...
