    With a few key players out due to suspension, this will be the best chance anyone has of beating the star-studded Suns this year. Rumour has it they're paying Daniel Casciaroli to play for them too. Add that to whatever they're paying the Palozzi boys and you've got a sizeable wage bill. Anything other than a flogging would be an upset.
    The fact that people still think we pay players or have ever paid a single player is hilarious. It's definitely a massive compliment. I guess that's the whole point though, the forum would be boring if these sorts of comments weren't thrown around, so please do carry on kind sir.

    I'm sure as everyone would be, very much looking forward to kicking off the season. A favourable summer has led to just about every pitch being in the best condition in recent memory. Carrodise actually is completely covered in grass. Unfortunately the cricket square in the middle will forever be the nuisance that it is. We are however aiming to play a couple of games over at Myer Park this season which are yet to be confirmed.

    Good luck to all this season. Hope its a great year and as injury free as possible!

    Round 1 Predictions

    Swansea 1-3 Kotara
    Upset of the round. No Maguire = no attacking threat. 1-1 at half time and the younger legs to snatch 2 in the last 10 minutes. Start of a long, long season for the Swans.

    Warners Bay 1 - 4 Azzurri
    Will have all the possession and possess to much quality up front not to score goals. Always prone to an error but they will far to strong for a unknown Warners Bay.

    Mayfield 3-3 Cooks Hill
    Six goal thriller on the cards with all supporters to look upwards if the want to see the ball and advised to book in to see a Chiropractor on Monday.

    Suns 4-0 Beresfield
    Suns will be strong and will comfortably. The only question is will Bero pick up more yellow cards than goals conceded. I think yes.

    Dudley 5-1 Cardiff
    Early form would suggest Dudley are favourites and will win this. Cardiff will try hard but ultimately wont mean a thing. Shame Optus aren't there, I am sure the country would love to see the reaction from a resounding loss.

    Didn't Warners Bay only get beat 3-2 against Westy in the Cup this week. Azzurri definitely not as strong this year as last. Maybe this one might be a close affair.

    Round 1

    Swansea v Kotara
    This will be a good test for Kotara back in the comp after last year. The experience of a few of the Swansea boys like Bevo might be enough
    Swansea 1-0

    Warners Bay v Azzurri
    Azzurri have been very quiet this off season and had an early ffa cup loss. Warners Bay coming back in the comp will find this a test. The blues defense could be their Achilles heel
    Azzurri 2-1

    Mayfield v Cookers
    This could be the battle between 7v8. Itís hard seeing these 2 pushing the top 4. I think Cooks Hill will try snd play football a little more.
    Draw 1-1

    Suns v Bero
    Itís hard to see any way that the Suns lose this but Bero are their bogey side. Suns have made some quality signings and I think are looking good for the top 2.
    Suns 3-0

    Dudley v Cardiff
    This should be a good test for Dudley after a year off. The forum is going wild for Dudley. Letís not forget Cardiff won the comp last year and have added to their squad. This wonít be a cake walk that others predict
    Dudley 1-0

    Fixed.
    Let's not forget Cardiff only played 11 games to sneak it on the final day. Hardly worth the Optus Sports circus.

    I like this Cognitio it will keep the interest each week.

    I think what we may have learnt from the weekend is that it could be a fairly even comp. Bero and the Bay werenít blown off the park like we all thought may of happened. If your not switched on each week no matter which team your playing you may be in for a few losses.

    That's a big call, 3-5 world class saves? The best keepers in the world don't do 3-5 world class saves in a game. Let alone a guy playing 3rd division football in Newcastle

    One in the first half was. Had a busy day though and made some great saves. A late deflected free kick made for a nervy end in what should have been a comfortable win. Bero battled hard for 90 minutes though to stay in the game.

    What I was getting at is the bloke had game of his life he pulled off some great saves that kept them in the game was 0-0 at half time suns could have been up by 3-4 easy but keeper was on fire for them.

    Big call. On fire, really?
    Most keeper worldwide aren’t on fire during games, so I doubt some dude playing in 3rd division football in Newcastle was on fire.
    Anyway, I hope he’s okay and somebody was able to put him out promptly


    Sorry, I thought we were reading comments very literally.

    Thankfully we had firefighters on hand to prevent this escalating into something more serious, like a draw...
