Gold Coast Galaxy (A League)

   
On the news tonight I heard that Gold Coast will be participating in the A-League in the comming years. I just wanted to know if this is true and if it is your thoughts on it.

it is in progress, may get the go ahead. New teams have performed, wellington have played ok and played good football, although it would be hard to see the gold coast perform without filling up their squad with brazilians. I think not good idea, i cant say how popular football is there, but i know here in sydney and nsw in general they could add at least 1 or 2 more teams, it is very popular and i dont think 1 team for the whole city is enough. I dont like the name, sounds like they are still trying to ride off the popularity of the La Galaxy when they visited.
   
Hope they make a GC team. If they played the Roar, its easy too drivee to, home or away!

I hear that ^^^^^^. If NSW have the ability to ad 1 or 2 more teams than great! with only 8 teams it's just not enough...

i dont know about the gold coast but there are definently going to be some added teams. townsville will probably put a team in next season and canberra too.
   
^^^^^ yeah I heard about that as well, in the courier mail it said the scouting system would be put under enormous strain because of the addition of Townsville 'Thunder' F.C, and Gold Coast Galaxy. Also Sydney is going to have another team, and also I'm pretty sure Geelong in Vic are going to participate.

Absolutely fantastic news imo, as long as the standard of the matches aren't reduced by the spread of players among the new teams...I'm all for having larger leagues, and it's fantastic that football is really taking off in Australia (as much as the Galaxy sounds like a super-duper name for a beachy team, well at-least I think the Gold Coast is on the beach...is it? Yes I'm an Australian, shhh. :P )..but you have to take into consideration player distribution and crowd-levels being mantained between clubs...I mean I was in the mindset that Sydney FC attendance records would skyrocket after the LA Galaxy match, yet instead they plummeted unfortunately...

It's like the Australian public is fickle over the results they receive!! You can't win everytime, unless you're the Jets or Liverpool of course. :P

Huh? They still get points?

2 for a win, 1 for a tie.

Yeah it's still mostly based on records of win-loss, no one really counts points.
But still 8 teams or whatever we have is pretty pathetic, but it's still an okay league.

actually there is a difference between CFL and NFL, when we first invented Canadian Football it was made to be more popular amongst fans of rugby, thats why the ball is much fatter, watch old CFL tapes and you'll see what i mean
fuck you

Yeah I know what you mean, didn't work though. And our ball is still larger now than the NFL.
