How were Launceston celebrations at the goals? Combining men and women they scored 7 goals; were the celebrations colourful? Hopefully the Zebras have learned to celebrate after seeing Launceston celebrating so much on the weekend. Launnie ugly football but great at celebrating; that's the way. I hear FFT will include celebrating in their program so that when they travel to the mainland will show that we are not lagging behind

Why would you disrespect your sister club? Try to show some respect.

When you have reason to celebrate , then celebrate. If anyone has reason to celebrate it's Launie City. The Club has come a long way thus far

Clearly head in the sand, like always you started well, talked yourself up, choked (again) and about to imploded.

If South is best at celebrating it is because they win so much.
Who is the second best team at celebrating? I have seen Devonport doing well at that too. Even Clarence celebrate better than Zebras, when they have something to celebrate. That's why I don't like individual sports, they cannot celebrate with the team. Honestly, if it wasn't for the celebration, football would be a very dull sport. Apart from the World Cup, they all talk about it. When do the World Cup starts? We could all talk about the celebrations! Soo exciting

You are right, who doesn't celebrate shouldn't even be considered a football player, it is all about the team; we in South are so much better at everything. I think that FFT should take the initiative to punish the players who don't celebrate a goal with the team. FFT could be remembered worldwide to initiate a new course for global football where who scores and doesn't celebrate is given 6 to 8 weeks suspension. The coaches should go to the extend to run appropriate training sessions to practice celebrating a goal and the referees should allow the team to spend 2-3 minutes celebrating. All of that would make football a much more entertaining game and... what a great idea this celebration thing. Fark, I don't even understand football, so complicated, let's just celebrate and be happy. When does the cricket season start?

Quoting Spot on 49:
The big difference is no Shelly lots of shots on last year but she saved heaps and could also put DK (another big out)straight into game from kick out .
Allie not there at start of season big out the replacement not even in her class.
Undy is the better of the centre backs by miles, mason cant ger forward as worry about goalie .
Last year they had to worry about place in team this year bench players starting 11.

To be clear, I'm not bagging the current keeper she will be fine, it's more that last years made great saves and knew the game from years of experience .
