#86

Massive thanks to Jubal and Sponsor. Will definitely be partaking in both pre and post game festivities. Top work, much appreciated, beers are owed, etc etc.

Can. Not. Wait.


#87

Don’t forget to pack your memberships. Quality stuff from the club organising a meet and greet on the Sat night. Check your emails for details. :+1:


#88

Damn, won’t be in Perth yet. Cool initiative


#89

Compared to $18 pints in Singapore, I’m virtually making money to drink!


#90

I can see Optus Stadium from the balcony of my Airbnb, it’s all getting real now.


#91

Evening all, just arrived and grabbed the first beverage in the Wild West,locals so far friendly enough… This will be one weekend to remember!

Specially wanted to say thank you to all the volunteer effort by so many individuals in this group to organise trips, Tifos, venues and Cove merchandise, you make supporting this fine club a dream state!

We have had some lows as a club, and will again, but that feels oh so far away at the moment - absolutely buzzing for this, bring it on Glory boys! Australia is Sky Blue.


#92

So I just got back from doing the Burswood Peninsula Park run which runs around the park next to Optus stadium.
Ran it in my Sydney jersey and finished first.
I’m taking that as a sign.


#93

fuck that, he makes his own


#94

Quiet, you!


#95

There was a horse running at Mudgee today called Ibini. It came first.
In the same race there was also a horse called Taking Liberties.
Just saying…


#96

Any progressives wanna grab East Perth election pints tonight?


#97

Will be at embargo bar for a few before the meet n greet at the Crowne if you are about.


#98

Entire row of seats to myself on the plane.
This shit is real people!


#99

Give yourself time to travel. Heaps of closed roads and stuff due to some running event. I’m just scoping out crown casino now. Shit has gotten real!!


#100

There was a big Sydney fc fan on my fly flight next to an elderly couple. Nice guy and felt sorry for him no space in those little jetstar seats


#101
  • Beat Melbourne so bad that Kevin Muscat is giving up on coaching.
  • Ended Šantalab’s career in the most humiliating way.
  • Sent Tony Popović 0/4 in Grand Finals.
  • The guy we got back when Vedran snaked us wins us a title.
  • Corica has a title as a captain and a coach.
  • Brosque ends his career lifting the toilet seat.

Could it have been better?


#102

could Also add - robbed of a legit goal in a game where there were precious few chances


#103

Take liberties lads!!! Give Blasta an arseblasting from all of us!!!


#104

Nope. Plug that penalty into my veins. May it haunt him until his death bed.

I’ve been thinking about this result this morning and what it means to me. It’s been amazing.
As most people know I’ve been in the Navy for a while, been at sea a lot and moved to WA.

I’ve never been able to get to a Grand Final and generally if I’m lucky able to see Sydney play once or twice a season. There was one season where I was able to watch our A-League, W-League and Y-League teams all play in Perth which was pretty special.

Many years ago I took my oldest son to his first game, it was the Champions League game at home to Urawa Reds, he was about 4 years old. He loved it and started his passion for Sydney.

This year, the planets all aligned and not only did Perth manage to win and host the Grand Final, but I was here, not going anywhere and going to be home. I hadn’t been in Perth when Sydney played here during the season.

I took all four of my sons, the oldest three last got to see Sydney play live when we smashed WSW at homebush, this was the first game for my youngest, who had also just turned 4.
We had a massive day out, catching two trains full of Perth supporters, the boys being cheeky and making little comments about Sydney winning and walked up to the stadium. We wrote our names on a car for the matildas, gave high fives and booed the Glory Gorilla thing and then we found our seats behind the cove.

The match speaks for itself, but after Reza put that penalty away I had four little boys screaming in joy and jumping around. For 5 Sydney supporters who haven’t even been able to see the team play in so long this was an amazing night.

I can’t be happier.
