    Let's just face facts. Our attendances won't increase rapidly any time in the foreseeable future. Everyone keeps going on about the "Melbourne sporting public" and how this city is so sports mad, but the reality is, this city is aussie rules and cricket mad. They'll show up for big events in other sports (Aussie Open tennis, F1, the occasional big european club friendly etc), but at the end of the day, there really aren't that many people here who like football enough to show up to the A League week after week. You could put the price at whatever you want, but people wont come. Melbourne sports fans love the footy and the cricket because they are rusted on sports ingrained in Australian and Melburnian culture for over one hundred years. People go to watch the footy team their grandad told them to support, they go to the cricket because Australia loves cricket. The only other sport they love is the spectacle. The big event, hence why the Derby used to always be such a big thing. Football will continue to grow slowly as time progresses, and I think it will get another healthy dose of new fans after the World Cup as usual, but we can't expect it to grow exponentially in a short space of time. The way I see it, we are a financially stable club who don't need to fit a certain number of people in the ground each week to survive, so sit back and enjoy the short beer lines while you can.

    No thanks. Would feel 10x more confident against Sydney than Victory. Yes Sydney are Sydney but Victory always lift for derbies. Also I'd rather watch us lose 15-0 vs Sydney than by any margin against Victory in a GF
  4. Just sit down quietly and cheer when your team scores or yell out "ball" when somebody gets tackled you filthy unwashed hooligan scum

    Quietly confident for this one. Already sorted the following weekend off so I can roadtrip to Sydney for the Granny
  6. The more I watch this guy play the more convinced I am that JVS is a crack addict. How could he let Bart go? Could easily dominate the dutch league

    No, I'm Angus. Now this conversation has become ridiculous. I don't have time for this, I need to pop into the Gucci store on my way to the gym and I can't really concentrate on typing while I'm listening to mumble rap.

  18. The "Where are they now?" thread

    Just a friendly reminder to you all to keep in mind the true meaning of Good Friday, Jesus Kennedy dying for our sins. I look forward to his ressurection on Sunday to help us beat the Jets. Amen
