I'm sure most would have heard, but good old Andy Gray has been sacked for sexist comments.

The other commentator, Richard Keys, has stepped down by his own choice. Probably would of gone anyway.

Victory and Heart to play in the Mirabella Cup - basically the Victoria-wide club knockout competition

http://au.fourfourtwo.com/News/196383,victoria-clubs-to-face-a-league.aspx

good incentive i reckon, and gives the state league clubs a great chance to showcase their talent and with a $50,000 prize, will be heavily contested

And today Fury show the $1.5 million to the FFA that they requested for the club to keep running

Quote :
NORTH Queensland Fury have raised the $1.5 million demanded of them by Football Federation Australia - and are now nervously waiting to hear their fate tomorrow.

The FFA had insisted the club had to raise the apparently impossible sum from the community to have any hope of surviving next season.

But after a mammoth effort, the club today confirmed they had reached the goal.

Officials at the club are staying silent ahead of tomorrow's crucial FFA meeting that will determine their fate.

Board members Rabieh Krayem, Peter Brine and Sean Knights had a teleconference with FFA CEO Ben Buckley yesterday to tell him the news.

And Brine was optimistic afterwards.

"We believe we're there and we've exceeded it," he told the Townsville Bulletin. "We've done everything we've been asked - there should be no reason [to axe the club].

"We believe the numbers we put forward stack up to what is required."

Brine said the cash had come from a combination of business, large companies and government among others, but without identifying any specific firms.

The achievement throws a curveball at the FFA who were expected to axe Fury and reduce the A-League to a ten-team competition.

The FFA are even understood to have already drawn up a draft fixtures list for next season based on just ten teams.

Clive Palmer this week also insisted he was standing by Gold Coast United, despite speculation linking him with a take-over of Brisbane Roar and/or Fury at Gold Coast's expense.

the FFA can't back down from their promise now...surely not

Superb result against Germany this morning... they may have been depleted, although it was still a fairly strong German side. Holger has done such a good job thus far. Makes you wonder what could have been in the World Cup. Razz

So ... are Aston Villa looking to buy a new keeper, have they already done so, or do they have a former protege ready to step into the senior role?

It wasn't. Which was to be expected given the weakness of both sides.
