Sounds like the big wigs down at MES have been taking notes from the Queensland (sic) Lions.
Egan, just do as I'm going to do... call them by what you want. Make a big, big banner with "PERTH Glory" emblazoned across it. Get everyone in the shed to do the same. They'll soon get the message.
Is it just me, but...
Why is there such a push to have these A-League clubs represent their state?
We've got a state league team from Richlands that reckons it speaks for all Queenslanders when it can't even unite the Brisbane soccer community and Melbourne adopting the moniker "Victory" because it's some catchy play on the state's name... and now Perth are following suit.
I don't know about the Asian or American leagues, but in Europe clubs represent a town or city NOT a region or province or state. Maybe I'm being too Euro-centric, but I feel that it is the football 'way' of doing things! How can a state be a club!
In Australia, state teams have typically been representative sides NOT clubs!
And what will happen when Townsville, for example, joins the league?
Next thing we know the Queensland (sic) Lions will announce they're going to play in maroon shirts!
