Ding Dong, Buckley's Gone

It's out with the AFL and in with the NRL at FFA Headquarters, with David Gallop announced as the incoming CEO to take over from Ben Buckley once the new TV deal is negotiated. The transfer merry-go-round also continues, with Richard Garcia set to line up in central defence for Melbourne Heart this season. All this and more on the Nearpost with Paddy Bordier, Nick Cumpston and Nick Amies.

Canberra United - the next step?

 No need to reinvent the wheel is there? Not anymore.

Now Canberra United clearly can't replicate the A-League models yet, but they could aim to nick some of the better ideas couldn't they.

And the Brisbane Roars One Goal is clearly one we could dilute and build up further our grassroots support.

United players, staff and admin do a great job but linking a little more, setting a few goals to increase crowds, members etc.

Seems natural goals to me as we take the football community a step further behind our best brand, our Champion team.

We need to do it - we're not there yet are we?
