Happy with Ang but dubious about where it might lead. 

Mourinho, Antonio and whoever else has been in the chair since Poch has been unable to properly loosen Levy's purse strings (Poch couldn't do it either), so there's no reason to expect that will change now. The owners seem content to be contending / qualifying for CL, rather than seriously chasing silverware.

Talk at the moment has 3/4 of the squad being shipped out, and if Kane goes too, then a rebuild is basically on the cards - something which probably should have started a few seasons back.

Moyes was the wrong man for the united job and it set his managerial career into a downward spiral.

Seeing his celebration and raw emotion after winning his first major trophy hit me in the feels a little.

Football is about moments and unbridled passion and the Hammers win this morning was in abundance of that.

I'll be taking an active interest in the Women's World Cup.  Might get to a game or 3 if work permits

Matilda's need to start well ... the other 3 teams in our group are Ireland, Nigeria & Canada

From what I can gather, the top 10 teams are as follows ...

USA, England, Spain, Germany, Australia

France, Sweden, Netherlands, Brazil, Canada

Starts July 20th so just over a month away

Big night for the Matilda's tonight in front of an enormous TV audience

The team has a huge following and a win tonight would bring an even bigger following

The question is ... will Sam Kerr play? 

Go Matilda's Go Go Go!!

Pretty good first half. Great trap and pass by Fowler to set up that goal.

Terrible coverage to not be showing all of the finals on FTA

I agree ... and CH7 will be kicking themselves now as the TV audiences have been enormous

And yes, a world class through-ball by Fowler.  And then the nutmeg by Foord upon scoring!

That's a tremendous win to the Matilda's ... we played very well and needed to

And ran out the game well, too good for Denmark

Sam Kerr gets some vital minutes so augers well for Sam & the team for their next encounter ... 5.00pm Saturday vs France or Morocco.  An ideal lead-in to our clash with the Blues on Saturday evening

Carn the Tillies!! 

reckon we are a red hot crack to win the World Cup. 

Foord has been amazing. solid down back. 

Definitely opened up a bit with the eliminations of Germany, USA, Brasil.

Japan/Spain have impressed me the most this tournament. predicting a Spain vs England final. 

But knockout football, anything can happen.

I want to like soccer, I really do. I see the appeal and the skill.

But watching Japan vs Sweden tonight and I'm yet again left frustrated with the game.

Penalties for players falling over their own feet, players carrying on like they've been shot after incidental boot on boot contact, or any contact for that matter.

Umpires calling time with a whistle, yet allowing play to continue some seconds or minutes past the end and injury time. 

So much is ripe for corruption, and poor umpiring in one moment in the game can decide the outcome.

All on board the Matilda train but beyond that soccer will fade into the ether for me.

She seems to be kicking up a gear now. 

Some near misses for England 

That 3rd goal for England clinches it you'd reckon

Sam's had 2 more great chances but couldn't finish

Need a miracle now

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
