  • Western Sydney Wanderers have declared their first training session to be held tomorrow at the Blacktown International Sportspark will be open to the public.

     

    A press released on the Football Federation Australia website has declared the first training session to be public for all Western Sydney Wanderers supporters.

     

    Western Sydney Wanderers has also declared that two new signings will be revealed at the training session.

     

    Fans will have the opportunity to see the squad train between 10 and 11am and also see the team unveil their latest two signings to compliment those they already have including Aaron Mooy, Mark Bridge, Michael Beauchamp, Kwabene Appiah, Tarek Elrich and Shannon Cole.

     

    I will hopefully be attending, schedule permitting. I encourage all who can make it to do so, as this is another historic moment for Western Sydney Wanderers and it's fans. I applaud the club for doing this, as well as one of our website members, @Taurus, who brought up the idea at the Western Sydney Wanderers club launch with CEO Lyall Gorman.

    A report in the Daily Telegraph has confirmed the signings of Shannon Cole, Michael Beauchamp and Mark Bridge for Western Sydney Wanderers

     

    The three ex-Sydney FC players signed with the club and were photographed ahead of their training session, said to be Monday.

     

    All three western Sydney products - Michael Beauchamp, midfielder Shannon Cole and striker Mark Bridge - wore the Wanderers red and black hoops yesterday for the first time before beginning pre-season training on Monday.

     

    Bridge was quick to fan the flames of the fledgling rivalry between the A-League's newest club and Sydney FC, saying he wants his defection to the western suburbs to help create an explosive rivalry with his former club.

     

    Nikolai Topor-Stanley has also been confirmed as a signing for the club in an interview with the Canberra Times

     

    A chance to learn from former Socceroo Tony Popovic was too good for Nikolai Topor-Stanley to ignore.

     

    The Canberra product has put his messy exit from the Newcastle Jets behind him and will today be announced as one of four additions to Popovic's inaugural Western Sydney Wanderers squad.

     

    Opinion:

    I think I've made my views on Bridge perfectly clear in the past, but now he has signed for the club it is our duty to support him and to give him a chance to perform.

     

    Shannon Cole has a lot of A-League experience, and if coached correctly will hopefully re-add his devastating set pieces for the club.

     

    Michael Beauchamp and Nikolai Topor-Stanley are a solid central defensive pairing, but one that will be vulnerable to pace from opposition attack.

     

    It appears that Popovic has decided to bring a core of A-League experienced players in to form the core of the squad. This strategy should ensure the club is competitive from the start.

    • Can't make it to Parra for pre-game drinks, are most punters headed straight to the ground once in town or is there a favoured pub near Central before the game?  
    • Leaving aside the ignorance of journalists who write about other sports (but let's be honest, there are plenty of football journalists who'd stuff up the names of teams outside their area of expertise)...   Offsiders is a better show now that Kelli Underwood is hosting and it's no longer a Gerard Whateley wankfest (who the hell cares about horse racing, Gerard? Even if some care, it's still not a sport!), but they'll always keep their focus on the other sports given they only have 30 minutes. The show did give Ange a good run, though, and Richard Hinds writes decent football articles at least once a week, so it's not like the show as a whole is ignoring football.
