Thoughts on Gameiro as the back-up RW? Could our medical team get him fully fit and on-sell him?

If he is on 57k or whatever the minimum is then yeah sure, why not?

In the same manner as those above, I will discontinue my cynicism for these matches if and only if Athletic Bilbao sign up to play us. Not holding my breath.

Bad: Unhealthy fascination with fascia - how it impacts an old man's body and flexibility, and what to do to loosen and hydrate it. I don't know how many Youtube videos I have seen on using rollers in the last few weeks.

First time I did my hammy it was a week after doing a half marathon. All stemmed from a super stiff back and generally shit flexibility (whereas I used to be able to put knuckles on my toes without warming up...).

But I'm able to do half marathons where in he past I'm not sure I would...

Try getting into your forties, injuring your achilles (old man injury), sitting out of football for three weeks and coming back and tearing the calf (old man injury) in the other leg, rendering your football season pretty much over seven games in.

the Everton match in 2010 was the tipping point for me - never again

I seriously don't get all the outrage over this game.

It used to be far more embarrassing when the Socceroos were getting thrashed by Euro 2nd string teams back in the 80s and 90s. One of the worst nights of my life was seeing the Australian national team get beaten by Gothenberg and all these Swedish fucking backpackers chanting: Aussie, Aussie ha ha ha

To think that the biggest teams in the world are now coming out to play club teams is fucking brilliant, as far as I'm concerned. Yes, they may see it as a marketing exercise or whatever, but it has way more benefits than negatives. SFC actually put up a gutsy performance in the second half and you never know...that might have given a few Eurosnobs something to think about. Not many (probably) but some...and the game would certainly have given SFC and the A-League some oxygen.

As for the motivation and behaviour of the fans? Who gives a rats? It was a friendly. There were no points up for grabs so why on earth would anyone expect genuine passion? Don't forget the A-League grand final went out to (I'm guessing) over 100 countries. That's what will live in the minds of international viewers - a fucking spectacular atmosphere. Real football fans OS will pick the real from the fools' gold.

For me, the only outrage of the evening was the less than pathetic ABC coverage (I do not include Ned Hall in that assessment, he did his best with what he was dealt). I sat there gobsmacked watching the most uncaring, amateur, insulting load of fucking shit I've ever seen on TV. As for that c&%t in the glasses...Adam Chen?...how the fuck does he get on telly? The little kid he half interviewed and then had the mic snatched away...well done mate! He would have been perfectly entitled to slap Chen in the back of the head for that ignorant behaviour but the kid just rolled his eyes. May have a future in television with restraint like that. As for Chen, if we ever see him again it will at least give me reason to feel good about feeling bad about the world. Fuck!
There was a novelty factor with the first few matches.  I think there is fatigue with it now.  The scoreboard in this edition didn't really help either.

Look if it's your favourite OS club that's making the trip for it, then more than likely you'll love it. I've never been too excited about these expos and have only been to one (ALeague vs Man Utd with my dad who loves Utd), and given I've got more chance of making out with Jennifer Lawrence than Palace or Lazio coming out for a match, I'll probably continue to look upon these matches with apathy.  It'll never reach the heights of a real ding dong at Selhurst Park or the Stadio Olimpico anyway.  I'll watch Sydney play if it's on television, but neither here or there re result.

 :oops: She's the one who fucking posts/tags/checks-in every goddamn fucking thing.
Shits me off too.

...on the other hand, it drives my ex crazy, and I'm nothing if not petty and passive aggressive, so, you know, swings and roundabouts....

I got home at 5.30 on the Monday after the grand final and was in too much of a state to take him into childcare in the city so spent the day looking after him instead of sleeping. Brutal

Brutal indeed. He nap much at the least?

When was it said that M1los had re-signed? Haven't heard or seen anything official.
This

Smithies reported in April that "Milos Dimitrijevic ... has triggered an extension clause in his contract after making 13 appearances this season", and it seems confirmed by Arnold's comments the other night that "Milos has got a contract for another year".
