    Clive's just another fat, rich arsehole who supports the Liberal party. Good to see someone say no to Tweedledum.

    It's potentially pretty exciting, but it seriously could go horribly wrong.

    Yeah it could. Given the potential in the area, I think the FFA will back them unconditionally.

    I just think it was mental that there was no team from WS in the beggining. It's a highly populated area where soccer is extremely popular.

    I have a reason to care about the a-league now. Surely I'm not the only person west of Strathfield who feels that way.

    As long as we don't play at ANZ

    They should play their home games alternately between Parra Stadium and Feral Park at Penrith IMO. Should stay clear of Homebush barring maybe home finals matches.

    I'm not confident, just as I wasn't about the Fury.

    It definitely will be interesting though to see what venue you play at and who will be in your squad.

    It has been interesting to note that GCU fans have been claiming the FFA has jibbed them and this was their plan all along...GCU fans of course being 3 people who looked at a jersey in a rebel sport store once.

    I can understand people being skeptical given the A-League's track record on expansion and the apparent lack of a private backer. GC and the Fury were cynical attempts to get more dots on the map for the WC bid, this is not the same. With WS you're talking about the number 1 participation sport in one of the most populated regions of the country with hundreds of thousands of players from juniors to over 45s. Sure there's a challenge converting participation and goodwill into commercial success but that's a problem for the entire league. If they can't make a team work in this part of the country they might as well give it up and go back to the days of Marconi, Sydney United, Olympic and Parramatta Power.

    I love Penrith Park but it should be primarily Parra Stadium IMO. Maybe a game at Campbelltown and Penrith each. Parra Stadium ticks all the boxes from accessibility to size/shape. There's also the T-Way from Liverpool/Wetherill Park which is probably the sport's strongest region, and of course the train station which connects to nearly every major rail artery in the city. Even for finals matches 20k at Parra would be a better atmosphere than 30k at Homebush.

    A soccer final being decided by someone going down without being touched? Well I never.

    Just because Perth copped a tough call, doesn't mean they were going to win

    Anyway...

    Kind of appropriate that the denouement to the A-League this season was a farce...

    Just needed Clive to pop out of the podium, jack-in-the-box like, and hijack proceedings
