a new hope

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 4:38 am

i was quite happy with last season in the a-league … there was a lot to like, and i think there is a lot to look forward to in the future.

wot i liked.

queensland roar played some lovely football.  i really enjoyed some of their passing and movement.  youngsters who take opponents on with skill and speed.  wise old heads.

the diversity of tactics in the league.  roar`s use of a front 3.  vic`s narrow play.  Au`s counter-attacking.  ccm`s directness.

that team goal that perth glory pulled off.

things that give me hope for the future

we are sports mad.

aussie success in other sports means that we can genuinely believe in becoming a world heavyweight.

forget the aussie olympic obsession, soccer gives us a chance to take on the world (Yay aussie sense of insecurity and need to prove ourselves through sport).

so nay to the naysayers.  dunno bout you, but i am gonna enjoy the party.



  1. even now, in the off season, having 3 teams in Qld producing stories is having an impact. Cricket is going to get a real run for its money this year.

    • hehe, i never really thought of cricket and soccer as being in competition. it is hard to think of two sports that could be any more different …

      but they are, aren`t they? in competition for $, for attention, for hearts and souls etc

      • Yes. And the competition has never, never, been so intense.
