Infobox question[edit]

I've noticed this in at least one other Adelaide United related infobox, is there any particular reason why the NSL era Adelaide United stats are separated from the A League era ones? It's the same team, i don't see why it's necessary to distinguish. Blackmissionary 10:07, 26 October 2006 (UTC)


sacked/resigned[edit]

please, if you are going to write a wikipedia article about kosmina, at least write the truth about what happened. Kosmina was sacked,

This is a very bad article[edit]

I'm not a soccer person, but this article references this living person in a potentially bad way, it also uses words that may make no sense to others (e.g. "spray") and contains unreferenced and biased material. Since this is about a living person, normally it needs to be instantly removed, but I don't have the time or the knowledge to tidy this up (other than delete the entire article!). Some of it needs to be done urgently. I have placed the appropriate templates at the top and so experienced Wiki editors should descend in droves and fix it. Jim77742 02:22, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Edits to this article, 10/08/2007[edit]

Firstly as a disclaimer, i am not a fan of the man. Secondly, if people want to vent their frustration/anger/hate at Kosmina or the treatment of him by the media or United, whatever, get yourself a texta and find yourself a public toilet and knock yourself out. Otherwise, let's just try to write a half decent, factual article, as one would for any article on here. Now for the details of my edit.

  • Corrected details and cleaned the article up
  • More emphasis on his playing career
  • Removed the "Controversies" section. This stuff should have been put in its place as a part of his coaching stints, and having a section that was bigger than the rest of it was silly. Now it has some semblance of context.
  • Removed a few of the tags, hopefully some of the sources will be added soon. Hopefully i can get around to adding sources if no one else does. Blackmissionary 06:37, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Edits RE: Croydon Kings[edit]

Kosmina never took control of coaching or management at Croydon Kings so I've once again removed this from the infobox. If someone can cite a source that shows him as having taken over I'm happy for it to stay, but he was never appointment, he was due to take control in 2012.

The following article (http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/sport/soccer/kossies-back-to-where-it-started/story-e6frectc-1226127968772) states that he is returning to coach croydon in the 2012 campaign however he joined the club in 2011 to start pre-season training and recruitment, he was employed by the club. furthermore id like to cite an article released by adelaide united kindly thanking croydon kings for releasing him from his contract at croydon kings proving he was at the time of the article employed by the club.

Warringah Dolphins = Manly?[edit]

In the infobox: 1994–1995: Warringah Dolphins is listed ass a club coached. Is this the same club as Manly United if so can we link it? --TinTin (talk) 05:23, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
