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

#121

Is the mid week awarding (should we actually win) confirmed?

if we manage to win it (of course certainly not guaranteed)

whats the best way to explain to a six year old sydney member and fanatic that we don’t get the golden toilet seat… and that’s because our governing body won’t let us …in a shameless attempt to drag fans (many of whom dropped over 1000 buck to go to the final)… to a dead rubber midweek ACL fiasco.

FFS!!

It seemed to just be an idea they had floated. I’d be surprised if the winner isn’t awarded it on the night.

#123

We’re boned.

Thanks for the arseblasting you jinxing cunts.

I would like to say that Perth are shit but it just wouldn’t be true. It will take a mighty performance to win this one…could be a win, could be an arse blasting.

#125

It’s gonna be a super tough game to win. They are a great team, but not invincible. Last weeks semi final showed that. I think they’ll be tougher this week so we need to be as well. For a neutral it’s set up as a great match. Too bad I’m not a fucking neutral. Squeaky bum time could go the whole 90 mins.

Keep Castro in midfield quiet and cut Davidson’s supply down the wing and we have a chance

I never fly with them but this time was forced to in order to avoid a red eye back. Never again.

#135

I never use them for work, and wouldn’t touch them on overseas flights (esp as I do Bus Class o’s and theirs is awful) but it was the only reasonable option this week. All this BS even before we get on and cop attitude from a menopausal flight attendant still bitter about being bumped off the International routes…

#136

QF581 cancelled. We are now going via Adelaide.

Announcement soon, but jump queue to service desk now if you can folks… :wink:

#137

Only 2,500 tickets left apparently:

#138

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.

#139

Indeed.

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

#140

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:
