That's ok D-man, your lot are set with Ange in charge.

No wait, he left the Roar, didn't he? Seems like we aren't the only ones who've heard "No" from a manager recently.

You want a bigger shirt sponsor than UNICEF?

I'm a bit disappointed about the way they are only auctioning off those shirts framed - I didn't get a new shirt this season and I would have been happy to pay a premium (especially given it was going to charity) to get one with the UNICEF/CMRI logos, but I don't really want to pay for a frame which I'm going to have to break open. I don't even know whether you could waer the shirt or whether it's been glued to the back of the frame or something.

I bid on Bosschaart's away shirt with the intention of wearing it (I also don't know if that's even an option). I've since been usurped, don't know if I care enough to bother bidding higher.

Yeah, but as the CEO.

Now Sydney have announced that they've re-signed Kalac as the goalkeeping coach, because our keepers have been so good under his tutelage.

Email from the club:

"Hi [legal-affairs],

Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your enquiry and apologies for the delayed response.

Please note that while the shirt is not glued to a backboard it is pinned in a number of areas and despite them being only small holes they may well increase with age/time. Also, as the shirts are player issue, depending on the who the player is, the shirt may well not actually fit you. [Well, derrrrrr!]

As such, we would not recommend that you buy the shirt and take it out of the frame, however should you win a jersey then it is obviously entirely up to you as to what you do with it.

Happy bidding and I hope you get the one that you are after......"

A quick check of the ATMOSS database reveals the following trade mark applications by FFA:

1489456 Western Sydney Wanderers FC ; West Sydney Wanderers FC ; Sydney West Wanderers FC

1489457 Western Sydney Wolves FC ; West Sydney Wolves FC ; Sydney West Wolves FC

1489458 Western Sydney Athletic FC ; West Sydney Athletic FC ; Sydney West Athletic FC

1489459 Western Sydney Strikers FC ; West Sydney Strikers FC ; Sydney West Strikers FC

All filed on 7 May 2012.
