    Moving on ....... :headbutt:
    - Where to next ????????

    After Ok's 'talking up' of an FFA Cup 'run' has now 'flown with the feathered ones', I cant see a lot of opportunities on the PS Game horizon, other than 'intra-club' skirmishes a'la 'CCM Fans Day' etc.

    Soooo, after watching:
    a) the Nix put in a shithouse performance v WSW (who were only slightly better themselves)
    b) and seeing a shell-shocked Kenny Lowe- after Glory's pitiful display

    Surely both of these coaches will be up for some A-League competition minus the synthetic grass (albeit .... behind closed doors most likely).

    Both PG & the Nix struggle this time of year for PSGames, due in part to other A-League clubs hesitancy for the longer travel/ overnight cost.

    CCM did a home/away with the Nix last pre-season, with our leg down at Knox Grammar.
    But why not kill 3 birds with one stone ......

    Shaun, ring Peter Filopoulos (Glory CEO) and convince him that a home/away 'friendly' between us & them (each pays their own costs) is in both our best interest's ... in the coming 4/5 weeks.

    Then call the Nix and tee them up in between that home/away ... they'll be over for just the 2/2.5 weeks (they could rent out a training groundin either NSW, SA or WA)
    - and 'all 3 of us' get some desperately needed PS-Games.

    With quality NPL clubs nearing Finals, only the stupid &/or sub-standard 'cellar-dwellers' would be willing to play us between now and HAL start.

    ....... & we need'm NOW !!

    Save money again. We all meet some where and have a round robin for 3 days. 30min halves if you want, changing teams etc

    I know MC is a tight arse BUT very little analysis to gain from having an U8's 'Gala Day' :p

    One of those 'can we afford NOT to spend the $$'s" scenario's ?? It's bugger- all $ in the greater scheme of things really, we did away to NZ last season, just another one to Perth and they reciprocate.

    Don't bag the gala day. Good times.
    But we took the piss at Know with full squad swaps. So gala day works perfectly

    I see Everton have loaned Conor McAleny to a non league team. Why not send him here????

    Keen to see that. City look to have a harder edge to them this season. Looking forward to seeing more.

    So far only Bling, Victory and City have looked likey thus far.

    Yeah - I know that - but a 442 writer saying both sides fielded strong teams when they wouldn't know who are in our squad means that report tells me nothing.

    So McGing played RB??

    Hoole is scoring for fun so that is a great sign.

    Pity he missed a pen though but seems to be going well playing inside.

    Kennedy makes his arrival after a podcast spray that he was still injured.

    Giving up early goals still. 11th min this time

    1-0 City – Arzani 11’

    Fitzgerald clipped a dangerous through ball for Arzani to chase and while Mariners keeper Ben Kennedy got their first, he fumbled the ball into the youngster’s path and he tapped into and open net.

    Good start Ben. Looking very weak in the keepers. Glover better be good
