I would have thought it was closer to 300 than 150. Certainly more than last season. Strong Western Springs flavour to the whole ocassion.. Unless you were up on the clubrooms deck not the greatest viewing for the casual spectator.Can really feel the heat radiating off the turf when leaning against the fence . Two pretty ordinary sides. Waitak look to have a bit more spirit than before so may be harder to beat - well resourced coaching wise - Milicich (DOF) , Hobson and McPherson (who i didn't see there ). Very young side. Weenix pretty  unimpressive - Sutton stood out as skilful and a good leader - the rest not up to much. Waitak equaliser a joke - free kick taken quickly miles away from offence. 2nd goal a calamitous mistake by defender. Weenix had heaps of possession in 2nd half but couldn't score. Worth the free admission and parking not as bad as I thought it would be .

I liked the look of young Othman. I would probably say about 300.


If you saw someone in a Nix scarf wrangling a 3 year old, that was me :D

Whats Milicich doing there his boy plays for AK City and I'm sure Hobson and co are really going to listen to him. He must be owed some money must be a way of soothing the waters.A blow up coming for sure.

will have to be happy with how the season has started. solid wins against the 'easy beats' and a draw against Canterbury.

Pretty one sided game against Southern - Southern have made good progress last few years.

Apparently now there is 2 coaches with court orders against Waitakere United. Wonder will NZF step in at any point and clean up the mess!

First game confirmed @ Seddon Fields, 3pm V Weenix. Good way to start the season off.

all their games are supposedly to be played there

time was NZF(A) would kick teams out of the National League for not having an enclosed ground - obviously not a worry anymore!!!!

Suburbs have played at fencilbles ground last few years and that has no barriers or fences at all

That should be a crime in itself.... being named Fencibles and not having a fence - ridiculous......

The historical village at Howick, is well worth a visit for anyone with an interest in NZ's early history.

Riverhills - great little football ground, and yep no fence, just a steep bank at the Ti Rakau Drive end. Still didn't get the whole Eastern Suburbs games being held there though, they were one of our biggest rivals!

Something about Waitakere really excites me this season. All the guys they have from Springs and some young talent that I really like the look of. The Ukranian keeper Bolharyn and Dawson Straffon especially look nice imo

The lad at the back. I think he wears 4 or 5. I suspect he is PI ethnicity (for lack of any other way to identify him) is going to get sent off if he keeps carrying on like a head case.

Grumpy old bastard alert

The LCB, wearing #3, on Saturday was Sammy Khan, a Fijian age-group international; the RCB, wearing #4, was Rob Tipelu, an NZ age-group international.

The shine has definitely come off Waitakere's season. Good to see the crowds still coming out but the football has been lacking.

I've seen 2 of their games. They don't seem as bad as their results but they are in desperate need of a striker. They seem ok in the back half of the pitch but up front is just this glaring hole.

Don't think they are doing that bad for a very low budget exercise. Most of the money (what little there is) has probably gone on coaching.

Realistically most of their players are inexperienced Northern League players , apart from Burfoot. Was really men against boys at the Auckland City game - could have been more than 6-2.
