Article in Canberra Times

on Wed Sep 30, 2009 8:08 am
There was an article on the front page. I will try and get it up sometime today. Anyway, it was quite concerning because there was a quote about a month ago of Andrew Barr saying that the Government was "for this bid, and this bid only" Doubt

But then later one went on and said that Jon Stanhope and Ivan Slavich will work together to figure something out.

Pray

Oh read that too. But wouldn't look to much into it. I am sure the Government will continue to work with us.

positives out of the article

  • (Ben buckley) "Canberra is the obvious choice for the next licence"

  • The foundation memberships money will be kept

  • (Ivan Slavich) I'm pretty persistent, I don't give up easily. I'll give up when we have an A-league team in Canberra.

  • "Posts on internet fan sites mostly said fans had seen the decision coming. (that's this forum) Thumbs Up

That Andrew Barr quote will hopefully be nothing. I am sure the FFA wil work with the government to secure us a team.

Yea agreed raiderscampese6. The FFA will be in constant negotiations with the ACT government and the bid team, and I a sure they will work something out.

A-league dashes Canberra hopes

BY MERRYN SHERWOOD
30/09/2009 10:26:00 AM

Football Federation Australia dashed Canberra's hopes of securing the 12th A-League licence yesterday, but tried to ease the blow by suggesting the ACT could yet be the 13th licence.
It was sufficient encouragement for Canberra bid leader Ivan Slavich, who, despite being disappointed that a Western Sydney team got the 12th licence, is determined to maintain his campaign to see a national capital side in the A-League.

FFA chief executive Ben Buckley couldn't say yesterday whether a Canberra team would be on the pitch in the next five, or even 10, years.

''I think the first thing to say is that we do believe Canberra is the right choice for the next A-League licence,'' Mr Buckley said.

For more, pick up a copy of today's Canberra Times

Us not getting the license. As for the article, I actually feel pretty confident we'll be there come 2012/13. I think the a-league will be a much better product with a Canberra team in it.

I'm still amazed that North Queensland are in it. Every time I watch one of their games I sit there dumbfounded......... it should have been us.

Yea, I am with you on the first paragraph. I am very confident and hopeful that we will be in before 2012. Possibly even in 2011, if Wellington are given the flick.

AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam said no New Zealand side will be in the A-League after 2011. I seriously doubt Frank Lowy will take him on! So we'll see...

That is what I am getting at. But remember Wellington's contract in the A-League expires this year. If the AFC want Wellington to be out of the league, then that is what will most likely happen... because they will pressure the FFA into doing it.

Buckley has lost any credibility he ever had, he's nothing more than a stooge for Lowy so anything he says now is just so much hot air. Now if we can get Lowy to give us the heads up on when he would tolerate a Canberra presence in the A League (and tolerate seems to be the correct word to use) I'd attach some credibility to what he says.

AS has been said in other topics, Buckley has just plunged himself into a massive hole after this event.

I think the FFA are working very closely with the AFC to get someting VERY positive for the Phoenix. I would find it a bit of a shock if Wellington got booted out from the comp.

Yea, I will find it hard to see the Phoenix being booted out, although there is a slight possibility. The quotes though from the FFA regarding Wellington seem hardly convincing.

Good to see our forum is reaching out into the Canberra Times. I watched Local News a few nights ago and they said about disgruntled fans on an internet fan website.

I remember either reading or hearing that Wellington will be an Australian franchise based in Wellington. I dont think they are going anywhere.

But then again with what we have seen from the FFA and co. who knows what will happen.

I know, really the FFA are going to put the gut into saving the Phoenix. They seem to get decent crowds and in good financial support.

If there is one team that is in bother, it is North QLD.

With wellington,

i reckon the FFA will ask the AFC to extend their licence for like 2 years so the league doesn't collapse under financial difficulties.

AS you said MattK, it looks as though Brisbane could be in a bit of bother. I doubt, being booted out of the comp, but definitely going to affect their on field performances. Hopefully they sort it out soon.
