    Perth GloryFC Thread-2018/19 PREMIERS!! FEAR OUR WRATH!!

    The kit publicity yesterday got me excited for the season ahead! Just hoping our new-look defence has had the chance to gel and that Ikonomidis is fit and ready to go. Fornaroli would surely be pumped to play a competitive game.

    Perth GloryFC Thread-2018/19 PREMIERS!! FEAR OUR WRATH!!

    Playing so well last season and finishing top of the league by a lot put our players in the shop window, which probably hasn't happened as much in the past with mid-table finishes. Comes with success that others, some with more cash, want our players. I'm still bullish on our chances this year...

    Depends who you ask: https://alexisgrant.com/2011/08/30/affect-vs-impact/ Like I said, I'm being a stickler, but it shits me.

    People using 'impact' as a verb when they mean 'affect'. Shits me. For example, the proposed legislative change will impact the following organisations... What? It's going to crash into them? Maybe I'm just a stickler, but whatever, impact as a verb is trash.

    Preview Fremantle vs Sydney - 6:10pm, Saturday, 20 July, Optus Stadium

    It was the best of Ross, it was the worst of Ross, it was the age of footy greatness, it was the age of footy shitness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...

    List Mgmt. Ross Lyon - Sacked

    Agree with the above. We are on an upwards trend over the last 3-4 years and there are unfortunately going to be blips along the way. If we can keep the core of the current squad together there's no reason we won't be contending when this group all start to hit 150-200 games.

    Sports books

    I enjoyed Wheelmen - will have to check out Tyler Hamilton's book. He spoke at a conference I was involved in - got super loose at the sundowner after.

    Non-Fiction Books

    Currently reading Janesville by Amy Goldstein. Really really good about the great recession, and the decline of manufacturing from one town's perspective. Would recommend. Similar themes to Hillbilly Elegy which I would also recommend but from a community rather than individual perspective.

    List Mgmt. Ross Lyon - Sacked

    I never ever read the Eagles board because I honestly couldn't care less what they have to say about anything. If they're as ignorant on their board as they are in real life then I'm positive my life is better for not finding out "how other supporters are viewing things".

    AFL 2019 Brownlow Medal (after the result bets will get a ban)

    I have Shuey on 13.5 and Gaff and Sheed both on 12. West Coast's count could be pretty tight - lots of contributors across the park.

    Sometimes you need to reply all when someone gets all passive-aggressive and CCs in half the world to their moan / whinge / pointed question. And then you feel bad for the innocent victims who got CC'd into that rubbish to begin with because now they have to read my thorough reply.

    It has it's place. Not in this case however: my staff member is organising a charter flight so sent an email to a bunch of people asking for 1) confirmation of their attendance, and 2) their weight so we can advise the charter company. No need to REPLY ALL to everyone about your plans and your...

    Maybe. That's pretty incompetent, but sometimes competence is a high bar. Still shits me either way.

    When people press 'reply all' instead of 'reply' for no reason. It basically says, 'I'm so important I don't care that 30 people have to read my inane babble'.
