Match Day Monday – Semi Finals

  You know those songs that go “I’ve felt pain, I’ve felt joy”, that’s what Sunday brought. My soul felt battered and bruised at times, to then go to searing heights. Sleep has the potential to elude me tonight, though maybe not because I’ve been driving a lot and sleeping in weird place, but will…

Match Day Monday – Round 14

The regular season has all but come to the end. Sure, we still have the rematch between Victory and Canberra, but that’s a dead rubber now. We’ve got Premiers, we’ve got a top four, PLUS times and information on next weeks semifinals. It’s the end of the road for five sides, and the begining of…

Match Day Monday – Round 13

Wow. Ok this round has produced the goods. Can you believe we actually have two teams now locked in for finals football? It feels totally insane that’s the case given how tight this season has been. Part of me still expects for there to be a massive coin flipping contest to decide on the top…

Match Day Monday – Round 12

I’m not going to undersell this weekend and say everyone has been focussed on the W-League and the craziness that has ensued there this weekend. Let’s face it that would be a lie. In the same breath I don’t want to speculate further on Staj’s dismissal than what I’ve already wrote (go check out Staj…

Match Day Monday – Round 11

We’re in for a bit of a baller for Match Day Monday this week. Why you ask? I’ve been working at a folk festival all weekend. This means I’ve definitely not managed to fit in all four games this weekend, despite how hard I tried (and trust me I tried), and I’m a teeny tiny…

Match Day Monday – Round 10

The Great Footy Tour of East Coast Australia has largely come to an end. I’ve just got off a plane, back on home soil of Hobart. After catching up with my housemate over one of those healthy microwave meals, because I wasn’t going to cook but I kinda need to eat healthier now I don’t…

Match Day Wednesday – Round 9

It’s been a hectic week. With my time on this east coast tour I’m on coming to an end, I’ve attempted to cram in as many games as humanly possible. I feel completely wiped, but in the best way possible. Seriously, I doubt there is a better way to see out an old year and…

Match Day Monday – Round 8

Christmas has come early! Not only for me personally, as I’m getting ready to celebrate on Christmas Eve instead of my normal Christmas day, but because the W-League has been serving us a festive feast all season of mayhem and chaos with a side of roast. Upsets, near upsets, close-to-almost-comebacks and Kerr headers, this round…

Match Day Monday – Round 7

Each week I wonder how the beloved league we call ours, the W-League, could possibly meet the expectations left by the previous round. Somehow it always manages to do so. You know when things happen that are so wild and ridiculous that it’s hard to put into words what totally happened and how you feel…

Match Day Monday – Round 6

[Me chilling half time with the Roar Corps during Sydney FC v Brisbane Roar. Spot the non-Roar supporter]   Each weekend I keep asking myself, how is the W-League going to top the last round? But then BOOM, it goes ahead and out does itself. Every single time. Honestly it’s like watching The Good Place,…
