Re: Coaching Movements

when you pay top dollar for an International striker and she does not score in the games that count ( Finals ) two weeks in a row now, your team does not win because you have become so reliant on her scoring. Maybe she should do the school holiday clinics for free let the club keep the money :) Coac...

Re: Coaching Movements

Two interesting matches last Friday fortnight, West Adelaide women seem to have caught the same virus that affects the mens team where they have so much promise but fall away at critical times. They need to learn when things arent going their way, they need to to dig deep and work harder to make thi...

Re: AUFC - W season 2020-2021

Admire your positive post , would be good to see more local players given the opportunity to compete at W league level. The standard would be more even given all our best players are overseas, and it would unearth some new local talent. It would need financial backing from FFA, especially for the Vi...

Re: Season review to date

With the lack of marking players in todays game I wonder if that is what is being taught on coaching courses I say that because you see a lot of goals in the A league as well where you will have up to 4 defenders inside the 18 yd box not marking anyone while there are two or sometimes three attacker...

Re: WNPL ROUND 5

After watching a few WNPL games of late, I have to say that the standard is woeful !

Why is that?? not just the standard of play that has dropped but also the l...

Re: Australia & New Zealand to host FIFA Women's World Cup 2023

why does it need an upgrade ?
average attendance for women's world cup qualifying match is between 10,000 -12,000
why spend all that money for a one off event, even if Matildas end up in the group that play here
a packed stadium every game makes for great atmosphere, whoever gets to play here.
