Quoting The Bottom Line:
Quoting Anon:
Where can we find Markaj's interview after the game?

On the Rhodes facebook page TFC. Its not really an interview. 1 question asked followed by a rant.Then a statement from someone, more of a rant and that was it.

Spot on short and sweet I do fell sorry for him his player was sent off but Brown not even shown a yellow card.
I would be frustrated too but that's not an excuse for bagging the ref publically there are other channels to challenge the refs decision.

Great there are 4 teams still in it.
Just sad that South has nearly scored as many goals as the bottom 4 teams combined. May as well have a tier 1 and tier 2 comp the way the table looks.

What has happened at Kingborough, game yesterday was terrible. A good social team would play better football than them.

These new mainland recruited players are technically poor, very undisciplined & their work rate is a shadow of what the previous players that represented the black & blue had.

Club appears to be heading out of the NPL quickly, do the board/committee even care?

Time to sack the coach, disrespectful, no idea of a tachical gameplan for big teams, the den should be a stronghold. South walked all over them yesterday.

Teams like Kingborough & Claremce just parking the bus this season, easy option for coaches but boring to watch (& eventually doesn't work).

Time to let the coach go, conceding average 5 goals per game tells the story.

Wait? A competition that is so close currently 50% of its participants may win? And people are complaining?

State League on the way out? The bottom teams can't compete with the Top 4 and don't have their resources. Should have always been an U20 state league comp giving youth a pathway to be discovered. Then teying the push to get a Tas team in the Victorian U20 NPL comp.
