It's a game of opinions - always - as our online polls prove!29 March 2018 | FT Editor
It's generally a case of 'love him or hate him' when it comes to talking about Besart Berisha, but it seems most readers of Football Today - 67% - love him (or most readers are Melbourne Victory supporters?) to varying degrees. We asked what was your attitude towards his rant at coach Kevin Muscat when he was substituted in the game between Melbourne Victory and Kawsaki Frontale.
- Half said he was “a bit over the top but good to see he cares”
- Only one-third said it was “unacceptable”
- The remainder were even more generously disposed saying he is “just so passionate”.
Juventus v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League
Not many entrants in this poll about who would come out on top in the round of 16 match-up between heavyweights Juventus and Real Madrid in the Champions League. It was 50-50 to each.
Alex Brosque spitting incident
This was an interesting result which may reflect the balance between Sydney FC supporters who read Football Today, and everyone else. We asked whether you agreed with the FFA decision that no further action was necessary against Alex Brosque in relation to the incident where he clearly spat towards the referee who was more than 20 metres away.
- 20% said “yes” they agreed
- everyone else said “no”.
Only one person (from 176 respondents or 0.6%) got this one right: whether Tim Cahill would play against Norway and, if so, as a substitute or starter. Cahill didn't play so 99.4% were incorrect.
Melbourne City v Western Sydney Wanderers
Saturday night's game between these two was a big one. Melbourne City needed to halt their recent 'slump' in results, if not form; and Western Sydney Wanderers need to keep winning to be in with a chance of making the top six. We asked what the result would be and we hope that most of you - the 78% who got it wrong - didn't also lay a bet!
- 43% said it would be a draw
- 35% said Western Sydney Wanderers would win
- the remainder, 22%, said Melbourne City would win.
In our final poll of this round, we asked whether Daniel Arzani was ready for the Socceroos - a point raised by many following his sparkling performances this season, and especially after the Australia v Norway game. Some who were opposed to it wrote to us saying he was “too young and too arrogant” - but we think age is not relevant if he's good enough, which is a fair debate, and if there is any arrogance in him, it would be knocked-out pretty quickly in Socceroos camp!
- 64% said “yes” - he is ready.
- 34% said “no”.
