New Parramatta Stadium Revealed

Dec 08 2016 12:24 PM | mack in Wanderers Club Articles

The winning design for the new Western Sydney Wanderers stadium at Parramatta was revealed today by the NSW Government.

As work begins on the demolition of the new stadium, the 2019 stadium design has been unveiled. With numerous bidders for the work, the Government selected a joint bid between builders Lend Lease, and designer Populous.

Populous are well known in Australia & Asia, having designed the Sydney Olympic Stadium that the Western Sydney Wanderers are currently playing in, as well as stadiums on the Gold Coast, in Melbourne & New Zealand.

Unlike many other stadiums built in Australia, this is a purpose built rectangular stadium, and will have the steepest viewing angles in the country. There will be a single tier home end, while the main grandstand will be built with premium corporate hospital suites.

The new stadium if completed as designed looks like it will be the premier medium sized stadium in the country, and leaving all but a handful of stadiums in the dust. It is expected to be finished in 2019.

4-1 Win For 10 Man Wanderers

Dec 03 2016 06:40 PM | mack in First Team Match Reports

The Western Sydney Wanderers halted a streak of 6 games without a victory by punishing the Central Coast Mariners 4 goals to 1.

Blake Powell, who cannot stop scoring against the Wanderers no matter who he is playing for, opening the scoring for the home side in the 5th minute. Storm Roux broke down the right flank using his electric pace, and his cross back into the centre found Powell. His first time strike took a deflection off Scott Neville to beat Jerrad Tyson.

The Wanderers were back level instantly. Jumpei Kusukami cutting inside onto his right foot and yet again the deflection did the work for the striker as the ball looped over Paul Izzo and into the side netting at the back post.

On the half hour mark Nico Martinez put the Wanderers in the lead. Mitch Nichols delivered a pinpoint cross over the penalty spot, and the Red & Black marquee Nico Martinez flew through the air like a dart to throw himself at the ball, his header whistling past Izzo for a 2-1 lead.

It was 3-1 five minutes after the break, Scott Neville steaming along the byline, his cross hammered into the legs of Jake McGing and beat Izzo all ends up.

Western Sydney were reduced to 10 men with a contentious call from Kris Griffiths-Jones. Trent Buhagiar ran in on goal but his attempted chip hit Tyson, who then clattered into the striker. Despite the ball flying away, the referee deemed it a foul from Tyson, then sent off the keeper for denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity.

Mariners coach Paul Okon made a raft of changes designed to increase the firepower, but all it seemed to accomplish was giving the 10 men of the Wanderers more time and space in the midfield & final third, super sub Brendon Santalab added to his legacy by finishing the game off as a contest in the 87th minute, taking one touch to put the ball at his feet then powering the second into goal.

The Western Sydney Wanderers face Melbourne Victory next week at ANZ Stadium, on Saturday the 10th of December at 7:50PM.

Wanderers Winless Streak Extends To Six

Nov 25 2016 08:50 PM | mack in First Team Match Reports

Another dominating performance by the Wanderers failed to produce a first win at the Sydney Olympic Showground with a 1-1 draw against Brisbane Roar.

As is the penchant for the Wanderers this season, they began the game strongly but were let down by their defence. Jamie Maclaren, a potential transfer target for the home side for next season, slowly drifted to the byline, and was met by a diving Jerrad Tyson. The collision was hardly at full speed, Maclaren collapsed in a heap and was rewarded with a penalty. Having won the penalty he stepped up to take it, and blasted it straight down the middle to open the scoring.

The second half saw a red & black tide threaten to swamp the Roar, as the visitors fell back time & time again. With the attack crying out for a killer final ball to pierce the Roar defence, it came 10 minutes after the break. Nico Martinez poked the ball behind the Roar defence for Jack Clisby who hit a first time cross into the middle that give Jumpei Kusukami a simple tap-in.

The goalkeepers took the spotlight with a string of saves. Michael Theo made a spectacular one handed stop from a shot by Martinez that looked destined to curl into the far corner. Not to be outdone by his opposite number, Tyson came up with a two handed diving save at full horizontal stretch when a Roar free kick was hammered into the wall and deflected off the back of Mitch Nichols.

Tommy Oar had a chance in the 91st minute to steal 3 points, a cutback found the flying winger and his sidefoot first time strike failed to trouble Tyson. A last minute set piece for the Wanderers came away with nothing and consigned the Wanderers to a 6th game in a row without a win.

Western Sydney travel to Gosford next week to face the Central Coast Mariners on Saturday December 3rd.
