Sydney Till I Die

I have added two new links to this site, both are for those that are interested in finding out some more information about Sydney F.C. . Who knows might be able to get some new fans for the club, maybe some with an international flavour. I will of course keep visitors to this site posted on the club's progress in the A-League which is due to start the new season in about two weeks time.

I am going to try and get a post up during the next week about matters pertaining to the Grateful Dead.
Till then,
John.

Sydney F.C. go down in pre-season semi

Well as I mentioned Friday night was football time for me and my son. The game this time featured the great Sydney F.C. against the pretenders Adelaide United in a semi-final where the winner would find itself in the final of the pre-season comp. The game was played on a fine but cold winter's night at WIN Stadium in my home town of Wollongong. Unfortunately Sydney F.C. went down 2-1 with Adelaide scoring the winning goal in the last minute of the game. Sydney had to battle the whole second half a man down as one of their defenders was sent off just before half-time. Sydney looked the better side but as happens the best side does not always win. I am already planning to make the journey to Cambeltown next Saturday night to attend the play-off for 3/4 hoping that a win here will sooth my bitter disappointment at last night's result. That is of course if I have my car back from the panel-beaters (I am hopeful about this).

Anyway I want to get back to my main focus during the week and write some more stuff about the Grateful Dead. At the moment as I am typing this piece I am listening to 11/11/1967 and really enjoying it. 1967 is a year I have been listening to alot lately and I think that some of the shows from this year are under appreciated.

High Rotation and a night at the football

Well in thought I better check in again as it has been a little while . I am still without a car but it looks like I might get it back from the panel beaters in about a week or so. At the moment I am still soaking up 04/21/1969 at the Ark and this has been on high rotation for about three weeks now. I simply love this show and can't get enough of it. I downloaded some really nice shows from 1967 during the week and I hope to get a closer listen to them soon so I might write something next week. On Sunday night my son and I attended our first football match for the new season and saw Sydney F.C .(the team we support) hammer Perth Glory 3-0 so we were really happy as Sydney played really well and look like repeating their championship from last year. It's off to the football again on Friday night where Sydney F.C are up against Adelaide United in the semi-final of the pre-season cup. I'll get back about the result of this game later.
