as someone who's experienced the utter dickheadery Sydney fans, I wouldn't blame the westies totally

but on the other hand, it was a Sydney game they turned up to, not their own game and they did say they were going to the game for a stink

I'm not particularly disappointed I can't make the Western Sydney away game this season

Media Player

The biggest cvnt here imo is Wellington's #2 Manny Muscat. Second biggest cvnt is Ben Sigmund, running around like a hero puffing his chest up pushing and looking to get involved


2012-13 season pre-season friendly game between Hyundai A-League clubs Newcastle Jets and the Wellington Phoenix results in a on-field meelee after the Jet's Brazilian import Tiago collided with Wellington's #2 Manny Muscat. In the ensuing tussle, Muscat is clearly seen punching Tiago on the ground, prompting pushing and shoving from both sides. With both sides now involved, Wellington's Ben Sigmund is seen sprinting in and shoulder charging a Newcastle Player, while Tiago takes a swing and connects with Manny Muscat.

The game was stopped for 5 minutes while the referee's calmed the players down, and debated amongst each other what to do. In the end 3 players were red carded and discipline action from the FFA (Football Federation Australia) is likely, despite it being a pre-season friendly, and not a competition game.

The players sent off:
Tiago Calvano: (Newcastle Jets)
Manny Muscat: (Wellington Phoenix)
Ben Sigmund: (Wellington Phoenix)

During the game, Andrew Durante (Wellington Phoenix) was also sent from the field after picking up a straight red after retaliating to a Scott Neville challenge.

Buckley gone!

Quote:

David Gallop to be appointed new FFA boss

Former NRL boss David Gallop will be confirmed shortly as the new chief executive of Football Federation Australia.

An official announcement is expected within the next half hour, confirming the departure of Ben Buckley, who has been at the helm of the FFA for the past six years.

Gallop won't be able to move into Whitlam Square immediately, possibly leaving Buckley in charge of finalising the all-important new television deal.

Now the NRL has finalised its own deal, things are expected to move quickly in the broadcast negotiations, which may yet involve either SBS or Ten in a partnership with Fox Sports. The FFA is still hopeful of doubling the existing contract to $40million per year.

Yeah but David Gallop is no improvement. Perhaps I'm a pessimist but that's the man who over-regulated league to the point where the game is neutered, saw expansion derailed and lost ground to AFL in its home territories? I don't know if that's worth celebrating, could very well be a case of same shit different smell.

I don't think this is possible with football - rules are regulated by FIFA, so he'll find it pretty difficult to toy with them the way he has in league.

A good thing, given the way expansion has been handled in the a-league to-date.

I'm no expert, but Gallop came in at a difficult time and has taken league through a shitstorm of salary cap breaches, rapes, glassings, rapes, and various other drunken incidents to take it to a point where it is more popular than ever. He presents well in the media, and appears to be pretty well respected.

My only concern is how influenced he will allow himself to be by Lowy.

all the football men in this nation are unorganised, grabastic pieces of amphibian shit - not one is capable of running the FFA and/or dealing with Lowy

(actually no the only one I've met is the CEO of Northern NSW Football David Eland and he's actually pretty good, but not running the FFA good)

While I'd like to throw stones at the Wanderers for the latest trouble, sounds more like the United fans that caused the trouble.

Boxhead on boxhead crime. Nobody wants to see that.
Muscat admitted after the grand final loss to Sydney FC last month that he would be haunted for some time for sending his spot kick into the post, a miss which helped Sydney claim the championship.

That's all it was. Someone let off a firecracker (not even a flare) and the jumpsuits went in gung-ho with dogs, pepper spray and batons.

Who are the hooligans again?

Media coverage of violence the mane problem, says Gallop

A furious David Gallop has accused media outlets of flogging a dead horse in their reporting of crowd violence at pre-season friendlies. "It behooves the dam media to do much better than this", Gallop snorted. "I'm filly angry about this, and all I'm saying to the media is "Don't write crop - it can't be that hard".

Gallop bridiled at suggestions that without a stable start to the season, the A-League risked falling at the first hurdle. "I've been watching the A-League for a bit", he said, "and there's no mare crowd violence than there's ever been. I'm sire its just an attempt to rig* the news agianst us".

A bit off topic, but I listened to a story on Radio National yesterday about the Bulgarian football league, in which no less than 15 club owners have been murdered in the last decade, stadiums are empty apart from the hardcore fans because everyone's afraid of their violence, and it's common knowledge that the refs are being paid off to fix most games. And we think the A-League has problems

Gotta love the Foster bashing in this thread. You must all be Brits. Sure Fozzie speaks a lot of anti-English crap but he has his own philosophy about the game and he genuinely has a passion for the game and for it to succeed in Australia.
