    Hope to be there. 3.00 suits me a lot better than 5.30! Repeat, repeat...just wish that we could have a regular  fixture...repeat repeat...

    On paper this is a dud we're having an awful season and playing Perth who are last. But it's Sunday afternoon weather looks ok should be fun

    Fair enough but I think a point you're missing is that there is just not enough spectator interest to have a bigger number of clubs, and the money is just not there from sponsorship and broadcasting interests. Have to cut the coat according to the cloth.

    Yeah that's true but the problem is we need our players playing more games so we do need more teams. I think they need to bite the bullet start their own streaming service or go on YouTube have full control of the product and try start the domestic transfer market so clubs can buy players but it's hard to do.

    Should amalgamate with Central Coast.

    League can only survive on fewer but bigger clubs. 12 clubs, Australia only, four rounds. Ditch "finals." With League, League Cup, FFA Cup, AFC competitions that's enough for proper competitive football. We're just wasting money on administration and diluting our talent pool.

    I don't agree Newcastle will rather die then merge with mariners they have a proper rivalry.

    The league can do 14 teams possibly more there is talent there in the npl and around the world we have a huge talent pool we're not like afl or rugby in that way. We just don't have a good admin and everyone else is just coasting through no ambition which I guess you can't blame them all the stuff ups were gone through

    @Mr MO There's another video shot from the other side that says Casey Fields. But I don't know for sure. The other possibility is Parade College (either Bundoora or Preston).

    This begs the question - and I apologise because I've said it before - why the fuck there is this club veil of secrecy over where and when these matches are played, and the results, is beyond me. I used to enjoy traipsing out to Northcote when our NYL boys played there - in the days of Jeremy and Zach Walker. Nice ground. Easy parking. Coffee and foot available at half-time at the shop under the stand.

    Incidentally we are close to the bottom of the league - MV doing much better.

    Fixture is on here https://websites.mygameday.app/comp_info.cgi?c=0-10178-0-633998-0&pool=1&round=1&a=ROUND

    I usually go for an evening walk in a nearby reserve here in Moorabbin, and I've noted that for the past three weeks on a Monday evening looks like a batch of City youngsters (say 11-14 year-olds), with about five adults organising and watching on, doing some training for around 60-90 minutes.

    I've not seen them there previously.

    That's awesome mate. It might not be popular but those people will always remember that
