    Can't wait. Looking forward to Australia not entering contesting youth world cup or confed tournaments anymore because Greg Griffin vetoes it

    Is that a good thing? Having 9 or 10 professional clubs controlling football in the country?

    While I don’t agree with the way ffa have run it, I don’t think the aleague clubs should have much more voting than they already have. Expand the Congress, but bring in more people from the various facets of the game; coaches, players; match officials; volunteers; administrators; spectators; active support; women’s football; beach football; futsal; modified formats of the game, from across the spectrum, be it professional, to semi professional to amateur.

    The aleague clubs should not be running the game.

    The aleague itself? Maybe, but I’m wary of where that lead with the NSL. I’d prefer a somewhat even comp than to have clubs falling by the wayside trying to match the spending that other clubs are doing.

    yeah sorry lemme edit that for a little minute.

    I want the FFA* running the game. I want them to outline a 100 year plan ( a constitution of sorts) from mini-roos through to national team operations. I want them to have a long term framework for the A-League, eg I want them to say "in 2022 there will be 16 teams. In 2030 there will be a second division with promotion/relegation, heres how the 2nd division works etc etc etc. If we need a salary cap then outline it. These knee jerk decisions they make with the A-League are a joke. They need to get out of the day to day operations of the game.

    I want the A-League clubs running the A-League. From TV deals, to sponsorship, to their own youth development. If the clubs were smart they would partner with local federations to get their players. But if they want to go solo and just pay top dollar for juniors then fine. That way a piss poor club like the Gypos may at least have a chance of 'selling' players to other clubs etc in order to pay the bills. If our billionaire owner wants to do it via his other clubs in Europe/Asia then awesome. We no longer have travel agents and Amway salesmen owning clubs. Let the ego filled rich pricks swing their dicks. Lets face it, all the parity rules the FFA have in place are a joke anyway. Citeh found a way around it, Sydney just lean on the FFA to get what they want, why bother trying to make things 'fair'.

    If the A-League owners want to change any aspect of the constitution they go to the FFA* for approval. That way they are reliant on an independent arbiter to decide any major changes.

    I want the federations running junior development, from mini-roos through to NPL level. I want the NPL clubs to get money from player transfers, the new system implemented through the NPL clubs backed by the Jets makes sense. Why cant we have every A-League club partnering up?
    NNSW should have zero say in what happens to the A-League, and the Socceroos. They need to know their role.




    * by FFA i mean the new incarnation with hopefully less Lowy's than usual.

    I'd like to announce that I will remain a plastic fan for the 2018-19 season, attending on an ad hoc basis. I'll certainly be there to watch Usain!

    I greatly enjoyed being a Jets supporter in 2017-18. The transition from Vuck fan was made easy by the Vuck being arseholes generally and undeserving champions particular.

    I can't wait to become a genuine supporter like Plague, and will monitor my reputation rating on this website to see whether it is worth doing so.

    That said KB selling Kenny Boden for $100k just about killed the club....the cash didn't cover the 5000 less fans that went to games.
    Different times though.
    It was $20,000 and a swap with Mark Trenter ('Big Trents' as Lowey calls him)....who went back to Sh!tney after 8 games or so anyway.
    Did a good job on Czechoslovakia until he did his shoulder
    at HT and was replaced by Malcom McClelland
