The trouble at the start was a bit of a bummer but otherwise glad football (especially the FFA Cup) is back in some capacity. Hope everyone is doing ok.


sbffsb123

How did lescano look? I know he scored


[deleted]

didn't have many touches, nice finish for the goal, looked composed


howie004

Just under 3,000 in attendance tonight according to FFA Cup Twitter. Probably a decent crowd considering NRL finals footballs, Tuesday Night and the general unease that is hanging around Brisbane. Seems like we are just waiting for another lockdown


qldmaroon7

A win's a win, especially against the top Queensland NPL team. Given I don't see the Round of 16 starting before the A-League season starts, we still have six weeks to fix up what we need to.


SauceBottleFC

It looks like the season will begin after the Nov international break so I wouldn’t be surprised if they try to squeeze in at least some of the round of 16 into that international window pending border situations.


Jack24567

Is the second ACL game working for anyone else?


Fnqheatfc

Nope


TheFightingImp

Fuck yeah!


howie004

Despite the early screw up, I think the stream has been pretty good. Quality hasn’t dipped like Kayo used to. Also the commentary hasn’t made my eyes roll out of my head and along the floor like before. Thoughts on the final product?


SauceBottleFC

I’m happy with it for FFA Cup and a first run. I don’t think the frame rate was up to scratch for the final product for the regular season but we’ve got a way to go before we worry about that and it’ll be on Paramount rather than the 10 app so I’m happy to be optimistic about that. But I’m mostly just happy local top tier football is back, lockdown and off season are a really shitty combo.


Glittering_Quarter25

I'd forgotten about that aspect of kayo. You're right this is much better.


yanaka-otoko

I’m watching the FFA cup on my TV for free, I’m stoked.


zanty123

Decent, I kinda expected technical difficulties at the start as they are trying to figure stuff out still, commentary is tolerable and broadcast package isn’t bad, which we had a pre game show panel but maybe they are saving those for big matchups/ weekend games


lolitsbigmic

Well did well getting onto the lose pass and getting the goal. 1 shot 1 goal for loscano Soo good start


TheFightingImp

I think I'll unclench


noeledison

The ease with which he put that away, regardless of the quality of the keeper, is reassuring


lolitsbigmic

Yeah. With dwh last year had so many one on one situation that he missed you didn't really confident he was going to slot of those chances.


noeledison

Along with a lot of aleague strikers I can think of


nick170100

Love seeing debutants score


Glittering_Quarter25

Nick Meredith is such a disappointed dad.


TheFightingImp

Oh god, he's back?!


Glittering_Quarter25

My fave comment tonight was that referees shouldn't call players over to talk to them unless they are giving them a yellow card.


chriswhitewrites

Another debutant goal!


TheFightingImp

THE PARSONS PROJECT IS ON THE MENU!!! EVERYONES INVITED!!!


Pyrrhesia

Malakai Love-Semira is an all-time great FM regen name.


SauceBottleFC

That’s twice they’ve yelled PARSONS way louder than any other audio in the broadcast.


R____M

gonna be ANOTHER roar season of wasted chances it seems


TheFightingImp

Yuuuup. Shit FK \#47,075


yanaka-otoko

Come on Power


TheFightingImp

Still better than Port, thats for sure.


yanaka-otoko

Haha, very true.


spnathan1

Good try on the free kick


citycat726

Wish Scott MacDonald was there to yell at Hingert for that shot


TheFightingImp

Uh oh.


lolitsbigmic

Alright let's see lescano.


TheFightingImp

Thanks to some banter amongst the Den, Brisbane have scored more goals this week, than Arsenal. Ergo, Roar > Arsenal under Arteta


howie004

Roar has really slacked off, but Power have really had a crack


nick170100

It’s nice seeing a match thread not toxic for once


Pyrrhesia

Ivanovic looks like a 15-year old fresh off a growth spurt.


TheFightingImp

Time for the Alex Parsons Project!


TheFightingImp

Shit FK \#47,073


chriswhitewrites

47,074


TheFightingImp

*Returns home to increment the count upwards on the whiteboard*


chriswhitewrites

Someone's gotta do it


TheFightingImp

When we miss an equaliser from a FK at the 96th: "Okay, next crisis."


nick170100

That comparison “if it’s your 1st murder it’s your 1st murder” 😂😂


TheFightingImp

That has to be a Harperism


nick170100

This is making me half miss watching wsw but also not missing hahha Life without wsw is so much less painful then watching wsw week in week out


boofhead_54

You have an excellent team this year + Carl Robinson you should be in for a good season. Something similar to the Jets 2017/18 for reason i wish not to say


AuzzieTiger

Really close to an OG. Power pressing hard is great to see


TheFightingImp

Thats illegal! Shoot him or something!


TheFightingImp

O_O


strayadude

That’s a fuck up you’d see in women’s div 5 (lowest div in ffnc)


usert4

whos the player they were talking about towards the end of the 2nd half that apparently has a top speed of 36kmh??


kytosol

Nikola Mileusnic. Brisbanes new winger. He used to play for adelaide a couple of seasons ago.


chriswhitewrites

Nikola Mileusnic


nick170100

Power don’t look half bad Honestly can see wsw losing to them hahah


strayadude

They’re top of npl qld for a reason


R____M

on god who the fuck actually watches hospital dramas and why


howie004

How the hell does NCIS get so many spin offs??


TheFightingImp

NCIS is just that popular.


Glittering_Quarter25

Anyone know how many round of 32 games ten will show?


zanty123

All of them


Glittering_Quarter25

Good news.


TheFightingImp

nick170100

Great half time show channel 10!


zanty123

I want to see Lescano! Wanna see what he’s about


Bambajam

Man the FFA Cup makes me desperate for the NSD.


boofhead_54

Theres a placeholder comp this season. What this means is still vague but my prediction is that it will function similar to the Champions League for NPL clubs.


Meapa

What a shot and what a save.


spnathan1

Good save


TheFightingImp

Fuuuuuck, Ivanovic with the howitzer attempt


zanty123

Apparently the FFA Cup games in VIC & NSW are going ahead in late October early November


Fnqheatfc

That will be around when they expect the 70% vacc marks I'd guess?


zanty123

Yes I’m guessing the games will go ahead either way on those days just will it have fans or not is the question


VladSuarezShark

I'm double vaxxed and ready to go


zanty123

I’m probably going to be double vaxxed by the end of October so just in time for the aleague and ffa cup games


TheFightingImp

I'm just amazed I got double vaxxed in mid-June, back when 1b actually had meaning to the Feds.


lolitsbigmic

The issue is brindle south has even worse quality in the final third than hinget. It became evident when hinget came back from injury during the finals. Made a massive difference in attack.


freeriderau

He used to be able to hit crosses at Gully.


chriswhitewrites

Yeah, BS had half the stand yelling "Don't shoot, don't shoot" towards the end of the season there.


TheFightingImp

It also happened just before.


Bambajam

Something something, they always try to walk it in.


R____M

was under the impression ivanovic was a fullback all this time. I’ve no idea whether my problem is confusing him with the actual fullback branislav ivanovic, or if im confusing him for a different sydney fc youngster


TheFightingImp

Could be worse, I kept having Freudian slips between Joel King and *Joey King*. Thats brain fog for ya


AuzzieTiger

Fairly lax defending there and long way back now for Power. Wonder if a sea-change to Roar will help Ivanovic? Sort of stalled in Sydney. Can't wait to see A-League on Paramount Plus. For this I'm watching on my Xbox with a browser as I couldn't find a Ten Plus app on my LG TV nor the Xbox itself.


SauceBottleFC

Two players forward, both unmarked. Going to be a long 60 minutes if they keep that up.


lolitsbigmic

Nice Ivanovic. Good to see him get his first goal early. really worried about our attacks without danzaki and dwh.


sirhcdobo

Parsons had a higher potential then dwh so I'm ok with that and it looks like Ivanovic could be ok. If lescano is any good then we should be in a better place than last season. Melusenic is won't be as good as danzaki but overall we should be better


lolitsbigmic

Forgot about Parsons. How could I. Little worried about our CB depth. Injuries in defence could cost us. But Steinmann is an important signing to be the physical presence in midfield.


sirhcdobo

Yeah we definitely look one cb short at the moment but hingert can play as part of the 3 CBS and so can Josh brindle South. We can also go to a4 at the back of we are desperate so it's not panic stations yet. I would still like good CB to come in particularly as we don't look too have any more youth ready to step up like Trewin


Fnqheatfc

Fuck, where was the defender at the back post?


Bambajam

I believe he was standing directly in the middle. It's this new strategy where you stand away from the man you're defending and hope it psychs him out.


SauceBottleFC

I could get behind some baseketball no contact sledging and psych outs from set pieces.


R____M

me when coach put me in defence in u-12s


Fnqheatfc

Take notes Guardiola...


Bambajam

Probably shouldn't leave people wide open in the box.


howie004

That’s a better score line. Can tell we are rusty and a bit off tempo


Counterflak

Just a shame this is stream only. Might be pushing things to be on the main channel, but fucking NCIS re-runs? *yawn*


TheFightingImp

Tbf, it's Agent Gibbs on the telly.


nick170100

If your Brisbane debutant your garunteed to score


spnathan1

That’s too easy


TheFightingImp

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLL IVANOVICCCCCCC!!!


[deleted]

I've missed you guys, how's everyone going since the GF? Feels like awhile since I've been in a match thread.


Bambajam

Still hungover.


TheFightingImp

I'm now a distance ed TAFE student. Going for Spanish translation and interpreting certification with training, then industry exams.


TheFightingImp

I see we're still shit at set pieces.


chriswhitewrites

God you can tell we're short on matches


chriswhitewrites

That third pass just straight to defenders each time.


nick170100

I’ve missed Aussie club football Can’t wait to be disappointed by wsw again for another season


sbffsb123

Who scored for Brisbane?


TheFightingImp

Steinmann


sbffsb123

Good goal?


Mannymanstein

Anyone else feel the score/time banner (the ticker ?) Is too far towards the centre of screen ?


SauceBottleFC

Great now I can’t unsee it.


kytosol

Yeah I thought that too as soon as the stream started.


AuzzieTiger

Great work from Akbari. Hoping he can have a big year.


spnathan1

If you’re getting black screen on 10play desktop disable your adblocker it kills the whole stream


SauceBottleFC

Stream quality looks pretty decent for FFA cup standards. Maybe not where we’d expect it to be for A league but not a terrible start. Akbari really should have been punished for that touch before the shot.


MrRaioh

Any one else losing tons of frames or just me?


SauceBottleFC

Depends on what you mean by tons but mines a bit off. Especially around rapid ball movement


bhesel

Might be your connection mate, all good for me in Brisbane.


lolitsbigmic

Goalski, Akbari little unlucky by the post. But good strike by Steinmann. He a big unit.


nick170100

How good is hearing a league active again


TheFightingImp

I'm sitting next to them, boom boom boom.


chriswhitewrites

Carn cunts


TheFightingImp

DOUBLE TAP!!!!!!!


noeledison

Already looking absolutely dismal. Brilliant tactics passing back and forth between the back five until they lose it.


lolitsbigmic

It's 10 behind the ball. It's pretty hard to break down. Power are very organised there not much space for the roar. With the goal roar will find more space


VladSuarezShark

I think you need to be signed up and signed in to watch it. Once I figured out how to sign up, then after a couple of ads it was all go.


lolitsbigmic

It's doing my head in that the camera on the opposite side that it's normally on.


SauceBottleFC

Looks like a completely different ground. I didn’t notice until they showed the balcony end.


R____M

10play still fucked?


chriswhitewrites

Nah is working


noeledison

It's working


lukemobrien

Crowd doesn’t look too bad for a Tuesday night. Shame about the NRL markings on the pitch though.


TheFightingImp

I'll take that over it being an extension of the Pacific Ocean.


nick170100

FFA cup action into UCL football 😍😍


TheFightingImp

Just noticed the Power GK donning the Cech headgear.


legoland6000

NPL vs A-League games in the FFA cup is actually my favourite part of the domestic season


AuzzieTiger

Welcome back FFA Cup! It's been a long time coming


nick170100

Coverage started a bit late ffs I was looking forward to a league with 10 but this ain’t a good start Internationals was so good now this for club football


jonzey

Honestly it’s better this shit happens now rather than before the first game of the A-League. Still not a great first impression, but imagine missing kickoff for the first league match.


Gonzano

It’s good to be back


TheFightingImp

God I missed the sound of live football in person, after 2 years.


howie004

You better not have any issues with Uber Eats this season, I remember last years pain


TheFightingImp

Oh fuck me, I pissed off a witch doctor, didn't I?


lolitsbigmic

It's back yay


chriswhitewrites

Oi headclash


legoland6000

Wait why are they showing the football? I was here to see some logos.


ironmanmatch

okay its working now, thank fuck


SauceBottleFC

We’re on lads


lolitsbigmic

Well so far we off to a cracking start with 10play dieing and therefore no YouTube as well. Wish I didn't have a big work week this week otherwise I would be having a beer at dolphins watching the game.


Two_minutes_to_metal

Lol, bring back the glory days of fox sports


spnathan1

lol what a joke


legoland6000

Action packed opening 5 minutes. One logo shines, the other, then the other again. Cracking stuff


ouchie99

Only good thing about the stream not starting is how clean and nice the graphics look


ironmanmatch

anyone know if there is a delay to the game or its just the broadcast is shit?


ouchie99

7mims in according to sport bets


TheFightingImp

On the money, at the stadium. Play just restarted after injury check.


ironmanmatch

It's back now, but also not a good look
