    I'm not wishing for it, just pointing out the hypocrisy of the situation.

    If we don't deal with China where else are we going to buy throw away shit we don't really need.
    Most of us have more money and possessions than we need anyway - might do us some good to simplify our lives a bit.
    it might also ease the burden on those less fortunate trying to keep up with all the marketing hype / bullshit.

    If Australian business don't want to invest in teams and foreign ones do then it's really not an issue.
    If the government have concerns, then there's nothing stopping them from offering financial support to clubs.

    you have to watch the video to find those comments, they did the original story a month or more ago on Four Corners

    Some great news: I can post here now, as the thread is named correctly.

    In other news, we play Western United this weekend.

    I genuinely don't know what Papas is saying in this interview (link below). He uses English words but his meaning escapes me.

    I just hope he learned something useful when he worked with GVE.

    Made more sense than a lot of GVE's interviews. 🤣

    TBH any club struggling with ownership and financial issues will not be able to build stability, so if that part of the dream is to be realised let's hope he can get the points on the board to make us an attractive option to potential long-term investors...

    He's been given a shirt by a sponsor - that is all.

    Whilst applauded on Linkedin, the FB ferals are losing their s***. Even the leftie local pollies are having a go.

    The ones where he says winning the possession and back pass stats are more important than actually trying to win the game.

    You know its true Cous.

    MJS hasn't lost its knack of prostituting out the stadium during AL season I see...

    BTW, they should have given Scomo that shirt before he went to COP26, he could have kissed the badge and told Macron to stop his whinging, they haven't built anything worth buying since the Dassault Mirage...

    I agree, it was just a sponsor giving a shirt, feel like that happens at any club to anybody of note.

    The caption that alludes to us gaining a new fan, implying some sort of relationship between the two parties, when the clubs main supporter group is labour supporting. Donít think that was the smartest play.
    To many, it seems the club is trying to advertise the fact that scomo is our biggest fan. Politics and sport donít often go hand in hand.

    Did he announce anything for the port, Newcastle or sport in general?

    Is [KEEPUP] replacing the My Football Live app or are they both gonna run concurrently? I can see [KEEPUP] is broader, but the A-League content seems to duplicate the My Football Live stuff, am I missing something?

    Not sure if anyone else is after a season parking pass, but apparently they haven't got the blanks yet, so you can buy them, but they'll still need to give you a paper ticket for the first match and you'll need to pick up the pass when it comes in (unless you select delivery I guess)

    looks to be a flashier version of the world game.

    Will be interesting to see how they handle something unflattering for the a-league.

    Their match's stats are less friendly to review
