Sage sells GLORY 7 months 2 weeks ago #182148

Just wonder what size crowd ,Glory need to get this club into the Black.A rough guess would be around 15,000 per game .They average around half of that.
Last year hosting a home Grand Final.Being on top all season.And still losing almost 3 million. His best result since ownership is -2.5 million.Is the A League the only soccer competition in the world with a salary cap--the marquee player.
Local Soccer use to be great in the 60's+70's+80's with Azzuri ,Athena,Windmills,Kiev.Tri Colour,Dalmatinac. Reminds me of a competition called the Wafl.
Pretty sure Azzuri might of done a Subi a few times.Unbeaten in a couple of seasons over the journey.

gtr: I re-call as a kid there being a bit of trouble at Balga United --North Perth Croatia game -- i think Croatia went down that year too. However, their number one enemy was Spearwood Dalmatanic because, their rivals mostly supported Tito instead of Ante pavelich, the fascist leader during the war. According to a mate of mine, whom played for North Perth, Pavelich's picture was on the wall in the club.

Perth Glory's fundamental problem, besides the questionable colours and name, is that many in the soccer fraternity will not support them. i have never done so out of loyalty to the WAFL.

That was something they stopped in Au soccer Ark.Soccer teams on ethnic lines.Remember Dalmatinac being quiet a competitive club.NPCroatia had a fair bit of cash just before the Glory emerged. They moved to that new ground in the Vegi patch on Karrinyup Road.Now called Stirling Gardens or Rosalie Estate.
Ark did Pavelich escape from the Soviets after WWII.

gtr: good question == he get out to latin America with the help of the roman catholic church; eventually, in the late 1950s, he was badly wounded in an assassination attempt carried out by a Serb. Like some many of the others from the fascist era, he seems to have ended up in Spain, where, it seems that he died of complications from the wounds he had during the assassination attempt -- December 1959

i remember all the ethnic names -- I did not mind them. After all, it was the ethnic population which kept the game going for many decades. I used to know a Scotsman whom came out to coach Stirling Macedonia in the 1980s.

They dropped all the ethnic names years ago, good move as well, the sectarian rubbish it attracted wasnt the best.

Getting back to Glory, Sage claims there are big buyers who want to change the name and colours,,,???

Really?? I find this hard to buy, Perth City or Perth United maybe change from Purple to Red...

To be fair I do think Glory and Purple are poor choices.

Yep remember all them, I actually played against a few as a kid, Tricolore was all Italian, and Spearwood was all Slav, pretty much Croatian, they created a hell of a cauldron at their home ground, which was a natural amphitheater that's for sure. Peter Sumich was one of their top players.

Morley Windmills were always a good club to play against and very well run.

East Fremantle Tricolore, merged with Fremantle United a few years ago which was a bit of a surprise.

Always remember Ch 2 news would should highlights from Dorrien Gardens of games Saturday night sports reports.

Well done BH.There was a lot of strong local clubs back then.
My father was a coach at Morley Windmills Juniors.Can remember as a kid watching Holland lose 2 world cups in the 1970's.They where red hot favourites in both games.

In the Swan Valley Ark you would think Croation. But have a feeling might of been an Italian club.
Forrestfield United-Scottish Team
Krakovia-Polish
Anybody know any English clubs?
