Matildas | FFA Cup | A-League & two big ticks
As the Matildas 'feel the love', we also give a big tick to FIFA and FFA over two different issues!13 September 2017 | FT Editor
Australia v Brazil
- So much encouraging news for women's football in recent days - well done to all involved - as well as something to look forward to with the two-match series v Brazil. Ray Gatt has a chat with Katrina Gorry who says they're not taking anything for granted for the matches on Saturday in Penrith and on Tuesday in Newcastle.
- The Matildas are feeling the love all-round. Good to see!
- Melissa Barbieri explains why this group of Matildas is the 'golden generation'.
- Whoa! And if you think you've had a topsy-turvy week or two lately, spare a thought for Lydia Williams! Tom Smithies has quite a tale.
- Crowd favourite, and new Aussie, Marcelo Carrusca returns - this time in City Blue colours.
- Seb Hassett asks whether A-League clubs take the FFA Cup seriously enough. Probably fair to ask whether A-League club fans do also?
- Been there, done that in respect of tonight's FFA Cup clash between Sydney FC and Melbourne City? Well, yes, but take a look at the Sky Blue strip .... do they look like little kids' PJs to you?
- Meanwhile, Heidelberg hopes to play through their sadness at the loss of a beloved Board member in their match v Adelaide United tonight. #GotheBergers
Something good from FIFA and UEFA
- Unlike some others, we're not ones to slavishly praise FIFA (or UEFA) unnecessarily. But this is a good thing. Football development money that has actually done some good - at a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan. Well done.
- And well done also to FFA in joining with rugby league and cricket in support of marriage equality.
