    Wollongong deserved a team ahead of Newcastle and Central Coast. Newcastle got a team because some millionaire agreed to fund them. Ditto with the Central Coast with John Singleton.
    The Wollongong Wolves were both popular and successful and, like I said, Wollongong has produced more than it's fair share of Socceroos in recent times.
    Wollongong's/Illawarra's population would be close to 400 000, which is bigger than Townsville, Canberra, Wellington and Darwin. I don't know too much about a second Melbourne team, but the fact that they can draw 40k crowds reasonably consistently seems to indicate that most Melbournians have embraced them, which begs the question: why would a second team be needed? Having said that, if the Victory don't get their act together and agree on using the new stadium the Victorian government is willing to build, there may be a case for a 2nd Melbourne team, purely to use the new stadium.

    The 2nd team doesn't have to located in Melbourne, it could be located in Gelong or something.

    might as well make this a NZ football thread, although I don't know how much interest it will attract...

    All Whites - Confirmed 2007 Fixtures

    March 24 v Costa Rica, Estadio Ricardo Saprissa, San Jose
    March 28 v Venezuela, Venue TBC

    May 26 v Wales, The Racecourse Ground, Wrexham (May 27, 2am NZT)
    June 2 v FIFA Match Window (June 3 NZT)
    June 6 v Ukraine, Kiev (June 3 NZT)

    Good to see us getting a game against Ukraine. In fact it's good to see NZ starting to take football seriously and actually getting the All Whites some games...

    Surprised they aren't playing more matches against Asian side considering their Oceania playoff is against the 5th placed Asia side, or is that next world cup?

    Looks like there is another dely in the move of the Knights to Wellington. I guess there a few more things they need to sort out.
