We roll a team from Korea, NZ should be a piece of cake.

 

given the players had a week off no reason why they can't back up for this one

Santa, Corn, Nev and Nico come back in and play the same otherwise

 

Dimas can stay on the bench Antonis, baccus and Nichols should be our first choice midfield now

Pray for rain to continue. My team's meant to be playing our first FFA cup game on Sunday night and I'd rather be at Spotless haha

#YesToSpotless, never thought I'd read that

 

My club plays (not me though) at 4:00. A 7:00 KO at spotless is probably doable. Who'd have thought 7:00 on a Sunday could be a good thing?

id rather start Pinatares than Dimas.... hopefully our first win at Souless

 

We actually looked like a team playing with some urgency and purpose without Dimas strolling around the pitch.....

 

Same in the derby we won...

I imagine we'll use a "B" squad for this game because Popa will save the best players for the Friday game against City

 

Dimas will start imo

We should use our best squad when we play teams like CCM, Newcastle Wellington and Adelaide. That's where have the best chance of picking up maximum points. Put the B squad in the games we most likely won't win.

That would be crazy

 

Two key games a league games are this one and Jets and Popa knows it

 

Win this one worry about Friday later

I agree with the above

 

But I just don't see Popa deviating from a rotation policy

Yeah we are kicking off at 5 so I could probably still make it. This time it's worked perfectly the 7pm KO

I see. I like jokes. 

 

Amazing to think that he once played in La Liga against Messi! And Numancia won that game at the Camp Nou! And now he looks pedestrian against the Central Coast Mariners.

Rhyan Grant was picked for the Socceroos. Strange things happen.

 

Dimas was great with Andreu next to him, probably not good enough to change a game on his own.

I looked it up and it appears I was mistaken...Numancia beat them in the first game of that season (with Dimas on the bench), but Barca beat them 4-1 in the game above. Was Pep's first season, when they ended up winning everything.

The thing with Dimas is there's nothing really bad about him . Just not energetic enough to make a game saving tackle not fast enough to break out of defence not accurate enough to make a game changing pass or any chance of scoring from long range . The fact he is taking our set pieces is Popas strangest decision of all time .

A solid player for what we are spending but we should be aiming higher in such a crucial position .

No point playing a B-Squad on Sunday. Nix are only 2 points behind us. We need a win. Simple as that.

Then we have Jets in 2 weeks. We need a win there too, to secure 6th place.

 

Forget trying to get a win v City. We need to consolidate 6th place this weekend against those right behind us.

Didn't Dimas had to go back to Spain for a family emergency? Is he back already?

 

Commentators said he went back 'home' for a family emergency. I wasn't quite sure whether 'home' was Sydney or Spain. They also mentioned that Cornthwaite had a minor operation too so I'm unsure of his availability

In Australia?

 

Send Dimas back to Spain, then in 20 years his kid can run the Socceroos midfield after going through La Masia.

No, she went back to Spain. Hence the 'emergency'. He is en route from Spain now so may not make the starting 11.
