    An A-League club is not an attractive proposition for anybody to buy. Next to no revenue, not Domestic Transfer System, no infrastructure, don't own the stadium, in fact you'll be hard pressed finding an A-Liga club that has actually made any profit in their history

    The national competition in general is dying in the ass. The level of interest in the game with just a few weeks to go would have to be the lowest i can recall .

    I found myself asking my young bloke just the other day when was round 1. The game was meant to grow a leg with the new league ownership model but IMO it would be fair to say nothing has improved.

    Good point.There is probably no doubt that the marketing budget probably doesnt provide for many resources but social media is a very cheap and effective way to promote your message.Why there isnt someone in that organisation taking charge of it is disappointing.

    No, don't work for the club. Used to help them out a fair bit, and still do on the odd occasion, but their interest in what I have to offer has waned over time. They have access to a system of player data they use instead of me.

    My point of difference is that I go back to when we were Newcastle United in the NSL days and include other competitive matches we have played.

    If you think those stats are astounding...got something big planned before the season kicks off

    Even the Australia Cup…
    We have the promoters dream matchup. 2 x Sydney teams (maybe 2 x Melbourne would be better). An NPL underdog vs an A league club.
    They should be marketing this to the moon. Channel 10 should be covering it in their news building it up. Follow one of their players to his usual work (probably a tradie in there somewhere), this stuff writes itself doesn’t it?

    Don't forget the Cup final at 7.45 tonight. Having said that, I'll probably fall asleep after an arvo on the tiles

    How good is to finally see some proud aussies actually passionate about a game of football in this country. God bless you Sydney Croatia fans, and **** the Double Eff Aye for ever thinking they (and the rest of the proper football clubs) didnt deserve a seat at the table.

    Im starting to think the 2nd division will never happen because it would actually be more interesting than the A-League itself and HQ cant be having that.

    That section of fans are obviously f#ckheads and if they happen to fall into a closed hand or two I don't think there'd be an issue. But it's very sad to see that a small, unliked, former NSL club has as many fans as a fresh expansion club. Imagine how much better the league would have been if they'd managed to set some rules and allowed the club's who already had a fan base earn their position in the top flight instead of this franchise nonsense we are left with. Hopefully the second division gets going soon so that regardless of the league's survival we will have the framework there to keep a national football competition going, even if at a semi professional level.

    It's not really hard to put some bans on certain symbols, chants, etc and punish clubs financially if they break these rules.... You know like everywhere else in the world.

    Ok let me get this straight, we demand the ethnic element eliminated from football in order to not cause tensions but then get upset when people refuse to respect our focus on one single ethnic group pre-match? We either let EVERYONE have their flags and symbols or we have NO flags and symbols right?

    Seems not.

    Also, the churlishness of the same group of assholes who celebrated booing the 'colonising Queen' 2 weeks ago now have their panties all twisted because someone booed 'their' cause. ****ing wankers.

    Just to clarify, I only mean the proper stuff like Nazi flags and clearly anti-semitic or homophobic chants. Anything truly abhorrent that can't be looked past.

    If a Facebook group of knobs wants to be both racists AND support any sports club in any sport, so long as that don't do anything openly racist at the stadium there's nothing the club should or could do about it. You can't choose your fans as a club. Having a flag that isn't racist/fascist but claiming to be on your own profile or in private isn't anything that should be the club's issue. Actively promoting those views is different, I don't know enough about SU58 to comment on whether they are good or bad, but they've got more to offer than Macarthur in my opinion, they just need to make sure they play by the rules like everyone else.

    So let me get this right

    Your ok with them booing the Australian national anthem and disrespecting the Welcome to the Country woke BS

    But you draw the line on them celebrating their ancestors
    documented support of some failed Austrian artist ??
