yep love the EPL. Woke up early this morning to watch Chelsea v Fulham, Everton v Burnley, Stoke v Birmingham.
Tho my team is in Div 2 and rarely get a glimpse....Bradford City
Yea, i watched some of the games this morning too. I love Tottenham! Somehow you just can't compare the level of skill these teams have too our so called "A League"!
Agreed...our A-League is far from the same quality. I have gone to some of the Roar games but get very frustrated watching it for the lack of quality.
That said tho, the standard i believe is improving from even 5 years ago. The additional money spent on it and success of the Socceroos have helped increase it's popularity.
The quality is not going to improve overnight, unless we suddenly have a multi billion dollar injection and buy a heap of OS players. It will take time to improve the domestic quality.
But gotta love Foxtel...it is a down under football fans number one possession.
I am curious how much is the World Cup package you bought with the fanatics? I've been looking at the green and gold army site but haven't made up my mind yet tho the wife thinks she has made up my mind.
Still the A-League has come up in leaps and bounds the last few years.
Of course it can't be compared to Serie A or EPL, but gotta give credit for progress achieved.
And it will only get better as more expats return with most making a little contribution each to the game here.
Reading stupid comments of Craig Foster and ignorant journos sure dont help the cause thou. But at least it's improving.
