No one comes close to lfc atm.
Ok.......

They were 8 points clear last year too, and they lost the unlosable when Gerrard forgot he had legs.

In the EPL absolutely anything can happen. City have some big defensive holes currently, but we know they can buy their way out of trouble to an extent. If they can hold steady til January they're still every chance.

8 points clear but citeh had a game in hand

Difference this year is we are better than them, we weren't last year.

Youre so pessimistic

By that reasoning we shouldn't like the NBA, NFL, MLB or any overseas sport.

Sport exists outside of this country.
I have similar feelings about those leagues too, but they don't have the popularity of EPL

I just have no attachment to any overseas sporting team - I can watch the sport but I never really care about the results of them

With use of the internet and mainstream media, you don't have to be in a specific location to become emotionally invested in a team. Lots of people travel as well, so they are exposed to a much broader array of sports, teams and cultures - than those in Adelaide.

The reason the EPL is also very popular in Australia, is that it does invokes the same tribalism that comes with the AFL. Saturday afternoon football etc - there are a lot of similarities.

I think last nights crowd suffered from being a Tuesday night. 7.30pm was too late for kick off.

Good news about the world cup but it was kind of a nothing announcement. Bassically if we are successful in hosting we will upgrade Hindmarsh for the tournament. We really need some upgrades regardless.

Agreed.

I love Hindmarsh but aside from new seats and a bigger screen it's largely been untouched for 20 years.

The issue with a full upgrade is the surrounding businesses and the church are opposed to it.
From a spectators point of view they have to find a way for more shade in Summer.

Another week, another AU win. Starting to fire on all cylinders..... even Mileusnic and Halloran are hitting crosses and scoring semi regularly.

Need another central defender.
The only problem is we played beautiful football but only for 20 minutes, we need to be able to do it for longer periods.

Some wonderful goals and really should of scored the penalty.... why didn't Mcgree take it?

I gather we are trying to build up Ospeth's confidence.

At least we appear to have more scoring power this year, with speed on both sides & crisp ball movement. We look better with Maria in defence to launch attacks.

Just need to sure up our central defence.
