Re: ash barty

I feel she missed a golden opportunity to be the first Australian women in decades to win the Australian Open, I wonder if her sights have gone off the target a little bit, especially when you have so many supporting you and were disappointed for you, especially your coaching staff, I wonder how the...

Re: AFC U-23 Championship

Unfortunately a really poor performance during the 0-0 first half with the midfielders & forwards completely anonymous. South Korea deserved to take the lead on 56 mins. Can’t believe it’s taken nearly an hour for Arnie to realise the team has to defend those short corners with two players. Up unti...
