According to the Australian the FFA and a mysterious tycoon are in talks to start a franchise in Western Sydney next season.

Possible replacement for GCU? You can bet they'd get better crowds for a start...

If it wasn't for the GCU sh*tstorm I'd be a doubter too but I think that it's looking increasingly likely that GCU won't be round next season so there should be more impetus to replace them. I'm sure the FFA doesn't want a 9 team league, and Western Sydney is the obvious expansion point now there are 2 Melbourne teams. It'd be better for the Nix too - direct flights!

Quite frankly I think the FFA should swallow their pride and bring back the Furries (perhaps give the GCU licence to some people from Townsville/Cairns?)

Could NQ get consistently good crowd attendence?

Last year when NQ were about to go bust, weren't they given a figure to come up with, which they did, only to be told that it wasn't good enough?

I seem to remember some sort of scheme where the fans invested in the club in order to keep it afloat. Now I know that is really clutching at straws and perhaps not viable long term, but surely it's an indication that there was a reasonable level of support in the region.

I should think the goodwill up in Townsville's well & truly spent.

You reckon? I don't know the situation up there, so this is purely speculative, but I wouldn't be so sure.

If Welnix hadn't come along and bailed us out, and the FFA had stripped our licence, despite Terry's protests, do you think our goodwill would be spent? I for one would be mad as all hell at what had gone down, but I'd still jump at the chance of getting our team back.

Different situation, I know, but I bet there are a group of diehard fans up in North Queensland trying furiously to sort something out. I know it probably won't happen, but who knows with the dire state of things at the FFA at the moment.

I can't wait for a Western Sydney side in the comp. It will be awesome to watch all the Sydney Olympic (Bubbles), Sydney United (Psycho Tennis Fans) and Marconi (Pizza makers) fans all unite to support an A-League side!!!

Many lols just thinking about it!

NSL ftw!

They tried to get a community ownership going, but never got near the figure required.

Yeah, from memory the FFA said they needed to have a certain amount in the bank account, and instead they had the amount in non obligating promises. FFA said that ain't good enough. (my memory is notoriously unreliable, so the above may be completely untrue.)

I remember going to a Stallions game at Fairfield, the football was dire but the young signorinas doing laps of the stands made up for it! Much easier on the eye than the knuckle dragging bears that were a big component of the Spirit support at North Sydney oval
