Canberra A-League bid...tick tick tick

And then there was one...from Western Sydney.

ABC Sport Tim Gavel asked Ben Buckley if Canberra was a realistic chance for the A-League's 12th spot at the National Press Club today.

FFA CEO Ben Buckley said, "We gave Melbourne (Heart) the 11th licence on Friday (last week) and the 12th spot is between Western Sydney and Canberra and we expect to make an annoncement soon.

"Canberra is one of the best bids we've seen to date," and Ben noted bid leader Ivan Slavich was in attendance, and Andrew Barr also present, who's ACT Government had given good support to the bid.

The usual response but the rumour mill suggested that two Western Sydney bids have disappeared...just like that!
