He is just a very average keeper IMO. Glued to his line, poor at set pieces, zero chemistry with his defense. No idea how good Tando is but maybe we should give him a go.
If Tando has anything going for him, it's athleticism. Something Reddy has zero of.

Who is going to go with the three ACL matches for $60 members sale?

I might be in the minority but I really don't care about the ACL. Maybe that will change once Perth are in it but I've seen plenty of ACL matches pop up on Fox over the years and it's never really piqued by interest.

is that standalone or as an addition to membership?
will the shed be closed off for ACL games?
Standalone I believe but quite the discount. Unsure on the Shed.

The Wanderers beating those diving Al-Hilal dickheads wasn't interesting?

If A-League teams actually did something at the ACL then there'd be interest.

Not really, no. Great achievement for them but I wasn't glued to my seat.

I don't think your average fan in Australia really cares about Asia at all. Or Africa, North America or even South America for the most part. People care about their local teams whether it's the A-League or whatever suburban team you play for, and they care about the big European leagues and the PL/EFL system. Man United playing a half arsed pre-season friendly will fill Optus Stadium. A competitive match against 8 time J-League champs Kashima Antlers (who would crush the A-League if they were in it) would probably generate as much interest as a third round FFA Cup fixture.

Just my 2c. I hope Perth make a real go of it and the public get on board, I just don't see it happening.

An addition to the membership. No idea yet on the shed and we probably won't know until nearer the first game.

Jesus christ 'give tando a go'. How often do you actually watch the team.

Walter Scott, Jacob Italiano (Mönchengladbach) and most notably Fabio Ferrera all gone from the squad.

Davidson off to Korea, Ulsan Hyundai. We get a transfer fee but no idea how much. Neville apparently off to Brisbane.
