Well that rules that out. Restricted it is. Hope there's not a big fuck off pole cutting the field in half. Wouldn't mind if I just can't see the scoreboard or something

Area: Eastern Side
Category: Sydney Fc Restricted
Section: BAY30-1
Row: A

Quote:

I don't go to be in the VIP area.. I don't need big breaks, a big song with a buildup and lights and smoke.. all you need is a kickdrum and a good bassline. You don't need any of that other shit. Na, I'm not going for none of those reasons.. I'm just going for the music.

I think you'll be around the back row so may be issues seeing the far side of the field under the roof.

I've got tickets in bay 29 & 31.

Looks like approximately nothing will be obscuring your view from 30 (except for what nickko said).

Nice, looks fine. Ended up waiting too long so started the transaction over again and have ended up in B, 29.

Atmosphere should be pretty good if around 20,000 tickets are sold, which they're expecting

i still cant see what the restriction on view is if you are in the top tier. some of my friends from glory games last season were having trouble seeing when they were on the botom tier, as they couldnt see over or around the coaches/subs. thats about all i could imagine the 'restricted' referring to.

This reminds me of the time Arsenal signed Giroud and Podolski is quick succesion and everyone was like 'Wait, this is Arsenal we're talking about.'

What we need now are more Frenchmen....

Found out that for this instance at Parramatta Stadium - the restriction is because you are so low in the top tier. The railing is the thing that's the "restriction". Viewing the image at 100% that Bism posted shows the thin metal poles at the bottom of the top tier. It also says on the PDF ticket that it's the railing. Won't be so bad, if it's really bugging me and there's seats spare elsewhere, I'll probably just move a couple of rows up

Sahin: I know where Kaka is going

Nuri Sahin claims he knows which club Real Madrid playmaker Kaka will join when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Sahin is currently on loan at Liverpool from Real Madrid, and suggested his former team-mate Kaka has already made a decision on his playing future.

During the past summer, Kaka was linked to the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham, AC Milan and Galatasaray but remained in the Spanish capital after Real Madrid's asking price could not be met. The midfielder was also touted as a potential high-profile recruit for MLS outfit New York Red Bulls and A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

Tongue in cheek fellas. Golly gosh

Tongue-in-cheek is a phrase used as a figure of speech to imply that a statement or other production is humorously or otherwise not seriously intended and it should not be taken at face value.

Ok, so how many bosses does footbal in Australia have. What does Damien de Bohun do, what does Gallop do, and what does Buckley do?

Good article, albeit from foxsports.com

Quote:

Del Piero's move to the Sky Blues created global headlines and the league has since been associated with various big names.

Former England international Emile Heskey joined the Newcastle Jets on Wednesday, pending a medical, on a reported one-year deal worth $1 million.

And former Germany captain Michael Ballack has been linked with A-League newcomers Western Sydney Wanderers, who are reported to have had talks with the former Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder's agent.

Ballack's signing would complete a stunning trio for the A-League, but while the club are reluctant to confirm such talks, de Bohun said the fact he's even remotely linked to a move to Australia is big enough and demonstrates the huge flow-on effect Del Piero is having.


"There's no doubt that there's an increased awareness in the player market internationally since Del Piero's signing, and yes we've been getting a whole lot of new interest from agents," said de Bohun.

.

"The real change has been that players and player agents are contacting clubs and the FFA as opposed to us chasing them down, they're the ones showing the interest and taking that initiative.

"There's all sorts of rumours flying around but the fact that someone like Ballack would even contemplate coming to the A-League is huge.

"Four or five years ago that wasn't a conversation people were even prepared to have."



De Bohun admits it was a "dream come true" to snag 37-year-old Azzuri legend Del Piero but not one he ever thought was out of reach.

What he didn't anticipate however was the interest it would create in the league and the excitement it would generate among the fans.

"We've had broadcasters in Italy beaming Del Piero's first interview here live and looking at showing his A-League games live," he said.

"So that in itself is changing the landscape of the league dramatically just in that isolated situation.







"But now that there are players like Heskey and possibly Ballack showing genuine interest demonstrates that the A-League is not just on the radar, it's being genuinely considered as a league that players want to be involved.

"So it's fair to say that this level of interest and excitement surrounding the league is something I've never seen before.

"To see football occupying the media space during the NRL and AFL finals, and creating a frenzy of sorts within the Australian population has been massive.

"It really gives us a platform to build on to really take this league to new heights."

Sydney kick off their season on October 6 away to Wellington Phoenix but play their first home game at Allianz Stadium the following week against Newcastle with the prospect of a Del Piero-Heskey clash creating a mouth-watering encounter for football fans.

Outstanding work by the Mariners to devise a kit for their goalkeeper which is even more retina-destroyingly awful than ours is. I thought we had that title sewed up for all time.

What is it with goal keepers needing to look like giant highlighter pens?
But we're fools if we sit back and stare at the ground
While the weasels and analysts sing
If we want our place in history, we can't let the frustration
Drive us to fashionable drinking again

Hoping Ono brings money to the game from Japan. Being only $800,000, would be a much better 'investment' than Ballack
