Almost half the players in the Melbourne City line up today have worn Canberra Green previously, Kinga, Carpenter, Van Egmond, Checker and Williams.

Sounds like it was very strategic recurring from city. Makes sense with Canberra being the best side (overall) over the past decade.

United were a little unlucky today. While it was a penalty I think we should have been ahead, Cross missed a couple of relatively easy shots, you’d hope she would have connected with one. Khakis was unlucky not to save the penalty as well.

I’m pretty sure three of them played in our last championship. Williams, Van Egmond and Checker.

You're talking about the grand final they won in Perth against the Glory. That's quite a few seasons ago now. Melbourne City came in the year after Canberra won and did the 3peat in their first 3 years - pulling a lot of players from other clubs.

Williams fair enough - she had been one of the mainstays at Canberra - except for that season when she did her knee (which was the year Canberra last won it - so she missed out on that Grand Final), but Checker and Van Egmond were only at Canberra for one or two seasons each out of about 9 or 10 years.

Would think Van Egmond was in Europe back when Canberra last one, but has pretty much been a Newcastle United player most of her time in the W League,


Its very hard to find one club players in the W-League. Polkinghorne is about the only one I can think of the players who have also represented the Matildas.

Thanks to the A Leagues desire to play a lot of women's football in regional areas, neither Melbourne team has actually played a home game in metropolitan Melbourne so far this season. I don't think that happens until the week after next.

Really weird fixturing when you see the Sydney and Brisbane teams have played multiple home games in urban stadia.
