    The nope tight third between us and the rugby. The Local football is just too popular and doesn't know why but cricket comes second.
    When we had Vaduka Kewell Neal and the likes playing for the national team we were drawing 100k in the big stadium. Just the local league suffers as any decent players move to Europe and in reverse we get has been so cant progress. Still, though my club when we are going good we draw 30 k a match so for Australia thats pretty damn good.

New-season and that is the table as it currently stands and we are worse than last season.The leader is on 18 points and we are on 4 looking up lol.
    Trying to stress we should be looking within for any gems rather than go all out buying again as we do have a good core of players just need to find 2 or 3 to compliment them.
    We know and I suspect most agree.

    Would be happy if we added 4 koch/Raphinha quality players maybe let go a few and then allowed 3 or 4 youngsters to progress to the 1st team squad

    That's what boils my blood we all know we have to get rid of some more dross but he keeps playing them non-stop. Raph was our likeliest signing and the best overall as we only got him in the last minute as every other one we looked at failed. We really need to bring up 2 quality Mids this has been our downfall i think as the rest of the team has been good.

    Anyone thinking Costa will "come good" needs to give their head a wobble!
    Getting rid of Stuart "madeley" Dallas - chicken oriental!
    Forshaw, Casilla, Roberts - Malakas!

    Remember about a year ago "The Shack!" was the great hope from the U23s, if hes the best, dont expect too much from the rest.

    Not sure we think he will come good on a regular basis but he clearly has talent and on his day is very good. Just doesn’t have enough good days.

    Think Shackleton will develop into a very solid player - he is still very young and at that age a lot wanted KP to be sold and wrote him off.
