Grand Final - Perth vs Sydney FC - 19/05/19 - Match thread


Only 2,500 tickets left apparently:


They changed back to “delayed”, then changed the plane to a smaller one, shunted people off flight, changed config…all without an announcement. Only now have they announced all that and some SFC folk have been here, getting shunted from even 8am flights, only to now be told they have to go via Adelaide…or get on a 4:30 flight or whatever. Absolute cunts.



This is why I don’t fly on game day. Imagine it was tomorrow morning?


Arnie, Clarky , Slater, Gatty, Danny Townsend, Garby…all got dumped on my 2 hr late flight…and into economy seats because they’ve put it from an Airbus to a tiny 737…Jesus Qantas are gonna get shamed for this…:joy:


Oh,and O’Rourke head of A-League…


Was a bit worried about Siem De Jong calling in sick for training mid week, but it looks like he trained in Perth today. Hope the rest of the squad handle him with caution, like an expensive wine glass he is classy but fragile.


Nah he’s like a rental car now. We just need 90 minutes or so of quality from him. If Ajax get him back with the engine smoking and covered in dents, then it’s regrettable but doesn’t matter deep down.


This is talking about presenting it to the fans back here in Sydney - nothing about them holding back the trophy on GF night.


Alright boys, we have to win tomorrow or this will be the most fucked weekend in a long time.


So now I goto deal with smug liberal voters & quietly smug glory fans :sweat_smile:


Nerves kicking in. Tomorrow is fucken grand final day!!! Best day of the year, or the worst day. COME ON LADS bring number 4 home


Need catharsis tomorrow. Let’s bloody do them.


Perth get their favourite shitty political party and we get the seat. Seems fair.

Just got into town. This place is like the lovechild of Canberra and North Sydney (minus the harbour views).


Unironic mullets seem to be the haircut of choice amongst Perth locals based on my observations at Crown Casino tonight


Game day! Fire up! We could have another toilet seat tonight.


Are you sure they aren’t all fans of the great man Rhyan Grant?


I’ve made my game day selections and in honour of the Grand Final being played in Perth, today’s preferred tipple will be a Limeburners Single Malt. Supporting the Western Australian is a reserves bench packed with European marquees in which experience has been favoured over youth.


Fire the fuck up!


We have a labor state government.
Also my seat is labor.


Aberrations. Let’s not pretend that Western Australia isn’t one of the freak states along with Queensland.
