    Long time no speak! But anyway, I arrive into Perth next weds (the 8th). I'm travelling solo so I'll need some folk to share a beer with. This is where you lot come in! I'm stopping at a place called 'Wickhams Retreat' (on Wickham Street). What's nearby? Bars? Food joints? Shops? I notice Perth Glory have got a home game next Saturday (11th), anyone on here go and watch em? I'm a football fan myself and so I've already promised myself I'll go and watch em. Hopefully a few of you will get in touch and help me out. And if you see me on the streets, I'll be wearing my red and white Sheffield United shirt as often as I can. Hopefully see some of you soon! Getting a tad nervous now mind. HOOROO!!

  8. I'm arriving in Perth on the 19th of April and am keen to join a Saturday league club ASAP. Not sure on how registration fees etc work either so any info would be a massive help!
  9. Hi there new to this forum! Was looking for anyone's advice on our predicament: We are a family of four, two boys aged 16 and 20. We have been here for 6 years and love Perth! My husband has been homesick since the beginning but has been back to UK 3 times now and 'manages' to get by because the rest of the family enjoy our life here. However 2 years ago our eldest son went back to UK for trials in football and secured a first team contract with SPL!! Since he left I have been 'son sick'. Some days not been managing to go into his room. We have just returned from 3 weeks in Scotland to see our son (I haven't seen him in nearly 2 years)!!!! We all had the best time ever doing something every day mostly with our son and his new girlfriend of a year! We took in a game and it was so lovely to watch him on the pitch again. I never missed perth once and that shocked me !! Our youngest son states that he wants to stay in perth as he has friends and his first girlfriend. He also has health issues we are working on which were non existent in uk.?? we got back 2 days ago and had the worst Xmas ever - hubby and I been together for 23 years! I cried all Xmas day between sleeping. I love my job and our sunny outdoor lifestyle . Any tips, help or experiences anyone can put my way I would be very grateful. Ps we are a very close family and our son in Scotland constantly mentions how much he would love us back together as a family. Also I had terrible SAD when living in uk and have had no trace of that here in perth. I appreciate any time you can put out to us xx regards Donna

    Talented young footballers

    We will be moving to Perth within the next 3 weeks and have a talented young footballer who is 9 years old, 10 late December. We are looking for a good school with an equally good club football team ideally in the same area and dare I say in a good affordable suburb? The football team needs to be competitive with excellent training as he is a natural and needs very good training. We are from New Zealand and while in the UK, had some training at the Aston Villa academy and was noted for his talent and one of the premier teams where he played told us that he will go as far as he wants to. What I am needing to know is, if there are any competitive teams that Jared could possibly look at trialling at and at the at the same time give the the right training that a talented boy of his calibre needs.
  11. Hi Guys, Just moved to Perth (Northern Suburbs) and was wondering if there are many men's amateur football teams about? Played pretty decent level Saturday league back in Manchester, and always keen for a kick-about/post kick-about beer, and its a decent way of keeping the fitness levels up. I know nothing about local leagues so 5-a-side or full 11's would be cool. Cheers.
  12. Would love your opinions and views on our site http://tyneandwear.sky.com/home . Is there anything you would like to see more of? As an Expat what would you like us to feature? Please post your feedback in this thread or email. Thanks again

  15. I'm new to the forum, new to Australia and after 3 weeks of getting my life here set up, I'm starting to get cabin fever. I'm game for going to one of those social meet-ups that people organise every now and then, but I also need some friends to play some sports with. I'm sure I'm not the only one, so if you want to get together for some friendly competition, this might be a good thread to advertise what sports/games you want to play and where you are based, then if we can pair people up to get them out of the house then that would be great! I'll start... Games I want to play: 5-a-side Football, Pool, Snooker, Darts, 10-pin Bowling, Tennis, Badminton, Golf. (I'll play anything really!) Where I am based: Northern suburbs (live in Clarkson, work in Joondalup)

    Glory bow out

    [YOUTUBE]9wkJMdm2CAQ[/YOUTUBE]Liam Reddy's sharp eye kept the Phoenix's A-League finals hopes alive as his his cool head under pressure helped secure a 4-2 victory on penalties over Perth Glory in Wellington on Sunday afternoon. The two teams were deadlocked at 1-1 after regular time and neither could penetrate some excellent work between the sticks by Reddy and his opposite number Tando Velaphi. The Phoenix were reduced to 10 men late in the first period of extra-time when defender Jon McKain received his second yellow card for a sliding tackle on Glory striker Danny McBreen but the home side held on to send the match into penalties. And from there Phoenix goalkeeper Reddy starred, saving spot kicks from Naum Sekulovski and Scott Bulloch to send the Phoenix into a home semi-final against Newcastle in two weeks time. The winner of the Wellington/Newcastle match will progress through to the preliminary final to face either Sydney FC or Melbourne. Scenes of jubilation erupted around Westpac Stadium as Adrian Caceres' match-winning spot kick sent the 24,267 fans into delirium. But Reddy was the hero, diving to his left and sticking out his left palm to keep out Sekulovski's shot before denying Bulloch's straight drive with his left boot. In a fiery start to the match, Phoenix midfielder Tim Brown was left nursing a gash to the head after just four minutes following a stray elbow and Glory striker Danny McBreen was brought crashing to the turf time and again as both sides tried to impose themselves. The physical nature of the contest seemed to play into Perth's hands as the visitors dominated possession for much of the opening half hour and created the better chances. Scott Neville was causing Phoenix left back Tony Lochhead all sorts of problems and the Glory midfielder would have opened the scoring in the 23rd minute had it not been for Reddy, whose right boot helped deflect away a powerful shot on goal. Glory kept creating chances but against the run of play Wellington opened the scoring, with a sublime back heel from Paul Ifill finding a running Manny Muscat, whose square-up into the box was met by Chris Greenacre's outstretched right boot to slot home into the open net. Perth goalkeeper Velaphi produced an excellent save in first-half stoppage time to keep out Ifill's curling effort from outside the box and Velaphi again saved the day in the 51st minute with his superb reflex save parrying away Vince Lia's powerful close-range strike. But the Glory were creating plenty of chances themselves as Troy Hearfield was forced to clear a header off the line in the 56th minute. The weight of chances finally paid dividends for the visitors as an unmarked Neville nodded home the equaliser after Jacob Burns' pin-point free kick found his team-mate unmarked at the far post. McKain's send-off for his dangerous tackle opened the door for Perth but Reddy pulled off a superb save low to the ground to deny Neville's goal-bound header in the 108th minute.
  17. [YOUTUBE]NOgaz1CN_NI[/YOUTUBE] A first-half brace from Perth striker Daniel McBreen has seen the Glory cast Central Coast out of the Hyundai A-League finals for the first time through a solid 3-1 victory at ME Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Although an injury-hit Glory looked slightly vulnerable heading into the encounter, McBreen helped ease some of the worries within the first minute as he fired home past Danny Vukovic. McBreen doubled the tally in the 11th minute and despite Central Coast gaining control of possession, Andrija Jukic flicked in the third just before the break. Adam Kwasnik pulled one back within four minutes of the re-start but Central Coast struggled to hit the target from there on as the Mariners lost just their second game to the Glory since the new competition began. "The first half was outstanding and in the second half we tried to contain them a little bit, but they scored and got a bit of wind in their sails," Glory coach Dave Mitchell said. "We had to make a couple of changes to adjust to that and we went to three at the back with Jamie Coyne in midfield, and he did an outstanding job covering in front of the back three there." "There's a few boys who were out injured as well, so it's good to see the boys came in and performed well." Perth's third win in a row sees Lawrie McKinna's men lose any mathematical chance of making the finals this season with two games remaining. But Brisbane's surprise win over Sydney on Saturday night means the fourth-placed Glory are not assured of making the play-offs just yet. Perth may be six points clear of the Roar with a substantially better goal difference, but the Brisbane side can't quite be counted out as it plays Perth in the final round. Despite coming into the game under an injury cloud, McBreen shrugged off any concerns within 48 seconds of kick-off as the former Fury man scored the Glory's fastest Hyundai A-League goal. A hopeful long-punt forward from Chris Coyne was fumbled by Mariners' defender Chris Doig, allowing McBreen the chance to take possession and slot it home. It only got worse for the Mariners ten minutes later as McBreen doubled the advantage. Mariner Andrew Clark appeared to have a long ball from Adriano Pellegrino covered but the midfielder didn't count on a determined effort from Perth's Scott Neville, who pressured Clark into going to ground in a tangle of legs close to the goal-line. First to his feet, Neville crossed into the box for another McBreen finish, his fourth goal in four matches since heading west from North Queensland. "You wouldn't expect those mistakes in an under-10 team you know," said disappointed Mariners' boss Lawrie McKinna. "We've gone from having the best defensive record in the league to hopping goals that are just not good enough." Central Coast had the chance to pull one back in the 25th minute when Glory stopper Aleks Vrteski, deputising for the injured Tando Velaphi, fumbled a header from Alex Wilkinson, but Pellegrino was on the goal-line to hook it away. Despite being two down the Mariners were enjoying a good spell of possession and Pedj Bojic came within inches of the upright from a free kick. But the Glory added another in the shadows of half-time from a corner as Andy Todd sent a bouncing ball forward, allowing Jukic flick it in with his head and score his first Glory goal. Any complacency from the hosts was eradicated within four minutes of the re-start as half-time Mariners substitute Kwasnik pulled one back, tapping the ball home after Nik Mrdja nodded against the post from a Brad Porter cross. Another Mariners substitute in Nicky Travis forced Vrteski to tip around the post on the hour but his effort lacked venom and for the most part Central Coast, for all its huff and puff, lacked the killer ball into the area that would cut through Perth's back four. A header from Mrdja went past the upright in the 73rd minute from a Travis cross but that was the best of the chances before the Glory stepped up the intensity once again in the last ten minutes as Jukic saw a low shot from 20-metres slide narrowly wide.

    Glory set to lose Sterjovski

    Perth Glory marquee man Mile Sterjovski is poised to leave the A-League club after receiving an offer to join Chinese Super League outfit Shandong Luneng on a loan deal. Sterjovski, desperate to keep his World Cup dream alive, will weigh up the offer in the next 48 hours. The deal is to run from February 1 through to May 31. Socceroos coach Pim Verbeek has made it clear any players who stay in Australia until the end of the season will not be on the plane to South Africa given the A-League season finishes months before the start of the World Cup. Perth chief executive Paul Kelly confirmed the club had given Sterjovski the green light to leave the club to enhance his World Cup prospects. It is a position in stark contrast to that of Sydney FC, which has barred its players from leaving before the end of the A-League season. With Perth still in the hunt for a top-four finish, Kelly says Sterjovski is torn between his loyalty towards the club and the lure of another World Cup. "The club's viewpoint is we'll support Mile and any of the players involved in Socceroos action with whatever they do," Kelly said on Tuesday. "If that means Mile has to go on transfer that's fine. "When we signed the Socceroos we knew this could be the case and we will support them right through that. "He wants to play in the greatest event on Earth so you can't blame the lad. "If that was me I'd be trying to get the best possible outcome for myself playing in a World Cup." Sterjovski's Glory team-mate Chris Coyne flew to China to train with Shandong earlier this month, but the fringe Socceroo failed to secure a deal. Glory skipper Jacob Burns is still searching for a loan deal and there is a big prospect both he and Coyne may play out the season with Perth, which is almost certain to feature in the A-League finals for the first time. "Their preference is to stay with the club but if they get offers and they want to go then we will support their World Cup bid," Kelly said. The Glory currently sit fifth on the table, just one point adrift of fourth-placed Newcastle ahead of Sunday's clash with Central Coast Mariners. Kelly says the club has not lined up a replacement for Sterjovski should the 30-year-old decide to leave. Meanwhile, Perth will defend a team misconduct charge laid against it for its part in a melee in last week's 2-0 win over Wellington. Perth has until close of business on Thursday to put its case forward to Football Federation Australia. "We believe our players went in to break it up, diffuse the situation," Kelly said.
  19. Well, went on my first A-league match since emigrating to Oz 5 years ago. Melbourne Victory 6 Perth Glory 2 I watched the match as a neutral, and while it was great entertainment, 8 goals and could probably have been double that, the standard of defending and tactical naivety couldn't have been more apparent. The number of goals Melbourne did and could of scored from through balls was frightening. Did I just catch Perth on an off day? I read in the news that David Mitchell was laying part of the blame on the World Cup, with several Glory players trying to secure stints at overseas clubs to improve the chance of making the Socceroos world cup squad
