  8. Calling all pommie football fans on the Gold Coast that miss the one good thing about the uk. Gold Coast United is the fledgling A-League team on the Gold Coast (currently in its first year of operation). I have been a Brisbane supporter for 2.5 years, but am moving to Gold Coast in Jan and will be within 3 mins bus ride of the stadium, hence my loyalty has quickly vanished and I already own the Gold and blue top of GCU. The fan base still has room to grow, although it is doing very well for its first year and the team itself is doing amazingly (currently 3rd). The stadium is in Robina, next home match is on 9th Jan. All comers welcome, and if you fancy a drink before the game, the supporters group meet in RQ's pub in Robina before hand, with a free bus put on to take you direct to the stadium. It's not like the footy used to be/can be in the uk in that it is very family friendly and there is no agro. I took my 3yo daughter to the game on boxing day and she has been going to the Brisbane games since she was 2yo. So, if you are interested, give it a go, come along. Any questions, just let me know (I'm still a newbie to this club so my answers may be delayed/second hand!). The finals start in Feb/March and GCU will def be a part of that. The atmosphere should be great in the fantastic brand new stadium. Hope to see you there/hear from you soon! :yes:

    Ooh! La! La! United!

    OOH! LA! LA! UNITED! The roar from 10,000 miles away was so huge it was a wonder it wasn’t heard at the Cup Final ground. Five hundred Manchester United supporters, gathered around the television screens in Sydney, shouted with joy as Eric Cantona shot his amazing goal to clinch victory in the last minutes. Weeping, throwing their arms about each other, spilling their Manchester beer... ‘I am not kidding you," says Fred Pollitt, founder and chairman of the Manchester United Supporters’ Club (NSW Branch). "Grown men were crying. I had to wipe the tears from my own eyes." Four days before the match, the "Sold Out" notice went up for entry tickets at the Sutherland United Services Club: ($12 for members and $15 visitors and all the food you could eat during the long night: Patchett’s pork pies with the jelly all round them, genuine black puddings, pickled onions, chicken cooked in Boddington’s beer batter, hot chips and salads.) The club has members in the UK, the US, Papua-New Guinea, New Zealand and Malta. One - from Manchester - was due to fly home hours before the game. He cancelled and went a little shakily aboard a flight on Sunday. As the fans got ready for the match, sipping their Boddingtons out of schooner glasses or cans ("sadly, no pint mugs," said Fred, "but after that goal they’d have drunk it out of their hats"); placards were handed round with "Oh" and "La" and "Cantona" on them, so when the lads needed a bit of encouragement, 500 Mancunian voices shouted "Oh La! La! Canton- A!" Just to warm them up Bobby Dennison, the comedian from Rochdale, told his jokes and tinkled out a tune or two on the goanna. There were auctions and raffles. Fred Pollitt had flown home to the Old Country a couple of weeks before and brought back a football autographed by all the players. It went for $600. And a shirt, autographed by his friend, Bobby Charlton, made $750 for children in a Sydney hospital cancer ward. ‘I met Eric Cantona while I was over there,’ said Fred; ‘shook his hand. He’s a gentleman. A dead-set gentleman. He’s got over that problem with the fan. We keep very much in touch with Old Trafford. They look after us and appreciate our support even if it is a long way away.’ Then - five minutes before the end - came that goal. Fred remembers: ‘It was a shock! He did it from such an awkward position and he went through four men to get it. I think we lifted the roof off.’ When the last Boddingtons had gone down, it was 3.30 AM before Fred and his wife, Ann, the club’s vice-chairwoman, made it home. ‘I had a little bit of a kip in the afternoon, then I had to go off to my job as a safety officer at the international airport,’ said Fred. ‘I was still feeling emotional.’
