You should only be able to post if you have seen your team play in the last 12 months.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

If you see it on tv, you are not watching your team play. You are merely watching what the director wants you to see and effectively watching the ball and whoever is near the ball.

Not really fair on those who can't travel overseas for whatever reason, not everyone is as lucky as you.

How does luck have anything to do with it?

It may not be fair but it's a fact. At the ground you join in the atmosphere, you see the whole game not just want a director thinks you should see.

You are lucky to be healthy enough to travel overseas regularly, you are lucky to have a 'job' that pays you well enough for you to travel O/S and you are lucky enough to be born to the right parents to give you a positive start in life, not like many others.

I wonder if you would hold the same views if you were unfortunate to become unemployed and unable to find a job that gave you anywhere near the same salary you've become used to.

It can happen to anyone, so thank your lucky stars while you have what you have and stop criticizing those who aren't so lucky.

I am not lucky to travel overseas, I choose to spend my money that way.

I am not lucky enough to have a decent job. I thought I was just a mid level bureaucrat? NO LUCK, I worked and studied hard to get where I am today.

Health - you may have me there as illness can strike anyone.

Yes, I would still hold the same views no matter what as facts are facts. You are not seeing the whole game if you just watch it on tv. Real supporters go to games.

Real supporters go to games.


Comment from Peter Moore, new CEO of Liverpool:

For Me, fans are not limited to those attending matches, but those global fans "sitting at 4am in San Francisco with my red shirt on and living and dying with every kick from 5,200 miles away".

Unlike you, there are people out here who actually support Football for no other reason than that they Love the Game.

Throw some money on Millwall, it's like buying money.

Just thrown £10 on them to win the Champions League in 2020.

Given the situation at Leeds doesn't look like improving any again this season, I reckon they are more likely 150 to 1 than 15. :oops: :cry:

I thought the term "buying" was a positive when talking money. To all kids out there, please ignore this stupidity, as it could cause long term harm.
