Bluetongue’s carpet is back?

A POSTSCRIPT to the piece I wrote on The Roar a couple of weeks ago about the importance of quality A-League surfaces, it was great to hear these comments from Lawrie McKinna after training at Bluetongue today;

“The field (at Bluetongue) is back to its best, back to where it used to be. They’ve worked hard to get it back up, and it was fantastic today. Just training here is a big lift for the boys and great preparation going to Melbourne on Thursday.”

Let’s hope he’s right and that it’s a sign of better surfaces to come across the board.

Wouldn’t it a great, a dream even, to hear Ernie Merrick or Kevin Muscat praising the state of the Etihad surface at some point throughout the season?

So, how come they are moving two games to Canberra so the ground can be re-turfed?

It will stay pristine too with just 4 games until December. Apparently they switch from winter to summer grass. Believe it if you want.
