    being a passionate canberra a league supporter it really saddens me to ask the question: should we close this section of the forum???

    Don't do it...

    I reckon Wellington's demise will be fast when it happens. I can't see the AFC taking a step back!

    to everyone banking on wellington being kicked out, keep dreaming. fifa has already said that they r fine with the phoenix being a part of the a-league and they have said that the afc has no power about it because fifa will overule them if they try anything. so give up on the wellington being kicked out thing. we r not a charity case, we can earn our own spot anyway. the bid team just needs to do a better job next time.

    Agreed 100%. i held hope early this year, but Wellington have been getting some good word in the last 12 months, so I gave up ages ago. FIFA have always wanted them, and FIFA are the most powerful governing body in football. The only way we will replace Wellingotn is if their crowds go to crap, the go bankrupt and don;t have Terry Tserpisos (sp?)

    WEllington are in the A-League for a long time and I have been saying THAT for a long time.

    So why hasn't the FFA extended Wellington's license if it's that clear and the "AFC has no power"??

    It's not about charity either look at Gold Coast and Fury aren't doing well so if their owner pulls out and a spot becomes available what are we going to say "no" we don't accept charity.
