    We don’t need another team in Brisbane.

    I think a Southern Sydney/Wollongong team is pretty much a lock.

    Then I think the other will come down to either Canberra or a Regional Vic team.

    All are doomed to fail.

    Yeah I think what Brisbane needs more than anything is a smaller stadium. I can't say much about the viability of another club but they sure are trying for one.

    SS or Wollongong would be considered a shoe-in by just about everyone, but the difference between the two is night and day. Wollongong has all the ingredients for what the A-League needs. Community connection, established history, new market share. All they need is the corporate backers and I believe they had one jump on board within the last 7 days.

    SS is manufactured by investors with little community engagement and are attempting to claim the entire south Sydney plus nearly all of the Illawarra region. It's a joke of a bid and unfortunately it could be the one that gets in due to the money behind it. I hope it falls flat on its face.
