A-League's new team to be named Western United, wear green and black

Western United will be the name of the A-League's 11th club, and it will play in the unorthodox colours of green and black.

A two-week fan survey helped club chiefs to decide on the key elements of the club's identity, unveiled on Wednesday.

Western United won out over Western Athletic, Western Melbourne Warriors and the catchy Westside Pride.

Football boss Steve Horvat said the decisions meant "this week the club proper has been born."

"It will no longer be a consortium or a bid. We don't have...

Western Sydney Wanderers' Josh Risdon open to overseas 'opportunity'

Socceroos and Western Sydney Wanderers defender Josh Risdon is open to the idea of a move abroad after his World Cup breakthrough.

Risdon nailed down the right-back spot at Russia 2018, starting all of Australia's group games.

"It's massive for me to play and start all three games. I draw a lot confidence from that, playing against some of the biggest players in the world," Risdon said.

"Hopefully I can bring that back here and spread that throughout the team."

Australia will 'rise up' to France's 'unreal' level - Josh Risdon

Australia's Josh Risdon and his defensive teammates could end up playing a game resembling Russian roulette in their World Cup opener against France on Saturday.

That the 1998 champions are among the favourites to win the tournament in Russia is in no small part down to the attacking options that coach Didier Deschamps has at his disposal.

Australia are well aware that even if Antoine Griezmann fails to fire at the Kazan Arena, the odds are slim that Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele...

Josh Risdon to walk out on Perth Glory at the end of the season

Perth Glory have been dealt a huge blow after star defender Josh Risdon confirmed he would be walking out on the club at the end of the A-League season.

Glory had tabled a lucrative contract extension to Risdon in the hope of convincing the fringe Socceroo to stay at the club for at least another season.

But those contract negotiations are now dead and buried, with Risdon believed to be on the verge of signing a deal with Western Sydney.

"This has not been an easy decision. I feel the time is right...

Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe to take cautious approach against Adelaide

Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe says he can't afford to roll the dice with too many underdone players for Friday night's A-League clash with Adelaide United at nib Stadium.

Star striker Adam Taggart (calf) and midfielder Brandon Wilson (quad) are a chance to play against United after returning to training duties this week.

But with winger Chris Harold also in doubt after picking up a knock in last week's 4-1 loss to Sydney FC, Lowe faces a tough call as to which players to include.

Lowe wants Josh Risdon to use A-League as springboard to Europe

Josh Risdon
Right-back Josh Risdon enjoyed a stellar year for Perth Glory last season.

Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe knows Josh Risdon, is a super player -- but he doesn't want the star defender to be at the A-League club next season.

Risdon has established himself as one of the Glory's best players in recent seasons, and he's a strong chance to be announced as the club's new captain.

The 24-year-old is also starting to make a splash on the international stage, featuring three times for the Socceroos.

Risdon considered a move to Europe at the end of last season, before deciding to...
