Idea 1: I went to Melbourne this week. And found perhaps our best football bookshop. Melbourne Sports Books at 80 Flinders Street. They had the broadest range of football books I have seen and most I have not seen up here at all. They even had publications from the Victorian league. I wanted this shop around the corner from me. The books I thought about buying were a set of three soft cover compilations of independent reviews of football. One was called El Ted is a alien or something like that.
Idea 2: Why would Alpha (issue 20 March 2007 page 91) say:
'Now decidedly ordinary players on modest wages can have boots like the stars. No, not Danny Tiatto - even worse.'What do they mean?
Idea 3: Well I did it. I watched the version 2, first round match Roar v NZ. The one that made us dream. Zhang's first run on when he set-up Ante Milicic and pounded a ball at the keeper for Matt Mckay to score his second. The commentators said Zhang was going to change the A-League. And that the Roar looked set for the finals. Bugger. Spase came on and played sensationally...
The Courier-Mail reported that the Roar are offering Spase Dilevski a lot less money if he wants to stay. Spase was my favourite player in version 1 but had a tough, injury hit, version 2. His tendency to injury seems to be the reason that the Roar are wavering beyond his 30 June contract date. However, the club did give him a bit of a plug last week - but no mention of wanting to keep him.
