A-League Squad[edit]

I have some concern that with the recent signees some squad numbers have already been assigned to these players, even though there have been no announcements in this regard, as far as I know? Even Andy Todd has been given a number, but he technically should not even be in our squad list yet, as he's not confirmed as signing by the club.

So yes, just querying what the references are for these supposedly applied squad numbers? Re: Tando Velaphi being #1 (though this change is logical I know), Victor Sikora now #7, Scott Neville being #2 aswell as the other recent NYL signees being assigned squad numbers. Oh and Andy Todd mysteriously already assuming squad #3?

BTW I know I should remove Todd from the list, but with all the rumours floating about Glory and some more announcements likely very soon, call me lazy, but I'm just leaving it, for now. Though some one else can remove him, if they see the need.

Merging Player Lists Of Men and Women Teams[edit]

although the W-League has representation from the A-League clubs. They are still 'separate' entities and should be treated as such in regards to player lists... Plus it will be too confusing to have the players of men and women merged as people will not know who is who. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Auxodium II (talkcontribs) 15:05, 4 May 2009 (UTC) Auxodium II 15:00, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

This makes sense as to not follow this procedure would make unisex and non-western names confusing to people reading the page who are not familiar with the clu210.56.81.91 (talk) 05:15, 29 July 2010 (UTC)b.

Affiliated Clubs[edit]

Um... the only club we are affiliated to is Manchester City.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:16, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism on this page[edit]

It appears that some people have been persistently vandalising the Perth Glory squad list. Culprits tend to insert "Juandy Tan" or some related names into the squad list. The name links to an article about a fictional player with that name. The vandals tend to use the username Darkrifle or unnamed IP addresses.

I have already sent a warning to Darkrifle, and I see that Leithp has blocked one of the culprit IP addresses.

This sort of thing is very irresponsible, and quite frankly very irritating to those of us who have spent time generating quality A-League articles.

Please refrain from renaming "football" to "soccer" in this or other A-League/FFA articles.

The majority of A-League articles specify Football (soccer) or Association football in the introductory paragraph.

Replacing all instances of "football" with "soccer" in Australia related articles makes them inconsistent with other Wikipedia articles from international sources. Fox Sports and News Limited publications now refer to "soccer" as "football", and many media outlets distinguish the codes by saying "AFL Football", "NRL Football", "Rugby Union" or just "Football".

Note that the governing body is now Football Federation of Australia. ViXx 12:42, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

That's strange, clicking the football link on my local Murdoch paper's web site's front page gets me Aussie rules.Another Murdoch publication can't seem to decide; as I write this it has two columns, almost equally mindless, on the front page putting each side of the case. Maybe you're thinking of the SMH? Football Federation Australia's own ads for the A-League are careful to disambiguate it from other sports (not to mention previous Australian soccer leagues...) As for the official names, my understanding is that what counts on Wikipedia is local popular usage, officialdom be damned. My interpretation of that is that what West Coast Eagles fans call football trumps what Perth Glory fans call it in Perth-related articles, simply because there are more of the former. And calling it "soccer" has the added advantage of removing all confusion; there should not be a Category:Australian football clubs, for example, since it could just as easily be interpreted as Aussie rules clubs based anywhere in the world rather than Australian-based soccer clubs. J.K. 13:54, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
Well for my media consumption the SMH, Foxtel, the ABC (and SBS) even the Telegraph are using the term football. Its the name of the game. Should there be Category:Australian football clubs, of course there should be. There is also Category:Australian rules football clubs--Tancred 00:15, August 20, 2005 (UTC)
I think this is because Tancred comes from Sydney (which is btw NOT the centre or capital of Australia). In most of the media in Victoria (ie. Hearald Sun, The Age, ABC, ch. 7, ch. 9. SBS is the only media outlet that calls it "football" and they are broadcast out of 'Sydney') "football" is called soccer, and I suspect that this is the case for all the other regions (bar Sydney). Soccer is the common name for the sport in most Australian states (bar NSW) and Wikipedia states that the most common name should be used in articles. Calling the sport "football" is a Sydney-centric view not shared by most in the rest of the country.
I also agree with Jiminy that the Category:Australian football clubs should be called Category:Australian soccer clubs or Category:Australian association football clubs so as not to confuse this sport with the other football codes, ie. footy (Aussie rules) and Rugby. It should also be noted that association football is the correct name for soccer, so as to distinguish it from the other codes. – AxSkov () 06:32, 20 August 2005 (UTC)
I was thinking Category:Football (soccer) clubs in Australia, actually; it's ugly, but totally unambiguous and takes into account the fact most people who play or seriously follow soccer do call it football. (Comments, Sydneysiders?)
The FFA seems to have done a reasonably good job of sliding into the lexical niche vacated in Sydney by the fact the most popular football code there is usually called "league" — though I wonder what a Sydney Bulldogs fan would say if you asked them what the word "football" meant — but it's going to take longer for the semantics to change in the AFL states, if it ever happens. I find it notable that The Australian still calls the sport "soccer" in its headings, to prevent the paper from being laughed out of every newsagent south of the Murray, while its soccer writers call it football casually within the articles. This could get confusing fast, and I think clarity is the best way to go here, with concerns for local usage. J.K. 08:26, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

I think the key underlying issue is really "Which code do you support?". This should have absolutely no bearing on nomenclature. I maintain that disambiguation is rarely required because in a majority of cases, contextual information makes it quite clear. Where it is not clear to the random outside observer, I would support "football (soccer)" or "association football" appearing in the text. However, I do not support blanket replacement of "football" with "soccer" for no reason.

There should be no reason to deny "Association Football" the right to be identified in the first instance as "football". By saying this, I also extrapolate that there should be no reason to deny "Australian Rules" as football either.

As Wikipedia is an international website, and the balance of football articles are regarding Association Football, perhaps only AFL related articles need to have clarifying remarks in them? Maybe this is contraversial. By the way, I support AFL, Football and Rugby Union. ViXx. 14:00, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

I think a few too many people have a bee in their bonnet about this one. (Particularly supporters of other codes with a bone to pick - probably due to the rising number of kids playing association football). At the end of the day Aussie Rules is football AND Rugby Union is football AND Ruby League is football AND Association Rules is football. Why? Because a significantly large portion of supporters of all these codes choose to call them by that name. Getting into slanging matches along the lines of 'Association Football is 'soccer' because Americans needed a nickname to differentiate the game from American Football and thought that 'Assoc' sounded too rude' or 'Aussie Rules should be called handball instead of football and is a hybrid of several English games' only add fuel to the fire and do not achieve much at all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:28, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Should we move this page to Perth Glory F.C.?--M Johnson (talkcontribs) 10:48, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Good work[edit]

This article is really very well done and is by far the best of the A-League club articles. Congratulations to the editors involved. My only suggestion would be to include a few more references justifying the various opinion statements eg. ...the public were very fond of Stange. But other than that, good work. -- I@ntalk 00:34, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Assistant Coach[edit]

Very good web page. I love how up to date it is and the professionalism of it too. Keep it up.

Perth have signed David Mitchell as Ron Smith's assistant. I thought I would just mention that, seeing as it is not up on the page yet.


Hi all. I've restructured this article, according to the guidelines at Wikipedia:WikiProject Football. Please help expand the sections that are empty or lacking in content. Also, please discuss the proposal to merge the article on former players into the 'Noted players' section. Normally, this would only include players who have had a significant impact (e.g. played over 100 games), but with only one season under their belt, most/all former players can be included. Fedgin 10:12, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Noted players[edit]

I feel we should just add the Noted players & not the whole squad, Maybe we could provide a Link to the 'List of Perth Glory F.C. players'

Thoughts? docker_dave 5:57, 3rd october 2006 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, the idea of 'Noted players' is actually former players, rather than current players. Since there are few to choose from, I'd recommend posting all former players for the time being. Then, through time, the more famous of these ex-players can remain. I agree that the article I'm proposing to merge is far too big and shouldn't contain any current players. Fedgin 10:25, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
On a similar topic, does anyone know why this edit was made, removing a couple of sections? Looks like vandalism but no-one has restored it .. -- Chuq 09:27, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
I have re-added Tony Franken to the notable player list. His position is justified as he was the #1 goalkeeper for 3 years and served as Goalkeeping Coach and mentor prior to gaining a coaching position with the Australian national team. All Perth Glory players who have any role with a national team should become a notable player. And yes, I was disappointed that the section I contributed about notable players was removed. ViXx (talk) 14:42, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

List of Perth Glory F.C. players[edit]

The List of List of Perth Glory F.C. players is now part-complete with every Glory player added, the profiles of some players just need to be added.

I have a list of players that we're on the Glory squad but did not play a game, Where can these people go? Do we need a list on the page for players that did not play a game?

Remember that you're essentially replicating the information in Category:Perth Glory FC players. I think it's best to use this category for all past and present players, and a separate section (in the main team article) for past noted players. Fedgin 14:07, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

The above link is to a site which has the stats for just about ever every Perth Glory player, make sure you use it when doing players pages. It's a fantastic resource which will only make our player info better

Channel Nine Report[edit]

Hey ive heard something about the club no longer existing next year, the stupid FFA have plans to no longer call it Perth Glory and changing the colours to Gold and Black to represent Western Australian colours. refer to Glory Boyz Forums, anyway i think this should be added to the page thanks.


Please, do not add such information. Every club has a number of supporters, and unless they are notable (appearing in multiple newspapers and magazines and national news in multiple occasions) they should not be named here. -- ReyBrujo 01:36, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:GloryShed1.gif[edit]

Image:GloryShed1.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use.

Please go to perth glory tent boysthe image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

The external links[edit]

I have removed the overly long and glowing descriptions of the unofficial websites in this article. There's really no need to tell anyone who reads this page that X site gets 1.8 million hits a month, etc and that it's maintained by fans for the fans. That reeks of biased and although I'm sure the sites are just fabulous, those descriptions are unneeded. The official site itself doesn't even have a send up like that. As far as the unofficial MySpace and Facebook groups, they're gone. Anyone can create those things and Wikipedia is not the place to advertise them. Read WP:EL.

Perth Oval[edit]

There seems to be an 'edit war' over naming rights. People are changing it to 'Nib Stadium' from 'ME Bank Stadium' which i believe is the current title. I don't know if health insurance company NIB has bought the naming rights to the stadium from ME bank, but could we get it sorted out? Nath1991 (talk) 10:19, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Perth Glory Kits[edit]

I was wandering if we could have someone to make templates for Perth Glory's home and away kits, like the Melbourne Victory page has and add them under the colours section in a infobox.

This website has Perth Glorys Historic and current kits (not 100% correct), this is Perth glorys one off kit .

i would do the templates myself but i have no idea how to. I think this would be a great addition to the webpage for people to see some of our history.
