Re: Dylan - selection to the Matildas

Junior I acknowledge that you credited the pathway post junior years. Apologies.

Do I know everything? Experience is the teacher. The fool's paradise (unfairly) is that the juniors coming through believe that there is only one way to the Matildas. It has been the case.

Dylan - selection to the Matildas

Congratulations first up Dylan on a wonderful opportunity. You earned it through hard work and determination. You have done this without being a part of any elite pathway program aka the gatekeeper (I stand to be corrected). No NTC and definitely NOT SASI. You have set the standard for what needed t...

I agree with your comments however, this is an opportunity of a lifetime. I wish her well. The team will recover from this and do well. Team spirit is high.

AUFC-W

Excellent start to the season. Keep it up. Although we sadly lost game 1, we finished the game off in a defiant state of mind. The long range goal made a huge statement. The next 2 games said a lot about the character of the team and coaches.

Re: WNPL ROUND 1

Many result predictions and team analyses. Excellent reading. Some brief and some with detail. Whilst early games are hard to gauge I think what we have seen so far is indicative of what lays ahead. Some may disagree.

City, Metro, Inter and Comets vying for second from Westies.

Hopefully the heavy rain and thunder arrives. To play in high humidity irrespective of the temperature is wrong and dangerous. Humidity is the thing that does damage.

Re: AUWFC Vs Camberra

They had chances for sure.

Willacy did an excellent job in goals. Question is that given her selection into the Matildas and her W League form the last 2 seasons,will she be in Adelaide next W League season? I think she'll go. For National career progression and AUFC-W form reasons she will go East.

Re: Lady Reds In Disarray

Well said Sporstbird. Unacceptable rubbish. Many of our local players needed a long break (apart from Willacy and John). The Fowler girls are basically allowing ego to precede their abilities. Immature.

It's nothing short of a DISASTER and Mess. We in SA deserve better.

Only a win can salvage the Reds' push towards finals. Draw not ideal but at least a point whilst a loss is (I'll choose my words wisely) will make it impossible to make the top 4. Again.
