    Wanderers Obliterated By Sydney FC

    Since Sotirio went off injured, we've conceded 7 goals and not scored a single one. it's like asking Argentina to play without Messi.

    Security at the game last night reported that a 50 cent coin was thrown onto the pitch. The Wanderers board have called for an urgent meeting first thing Monday morning to consider whether this was an act of vandalism or a take over bid.

    Sorry to those who have decided that Gombeu is going, but Bossi's article is crap. Why do you guys buy into it, knowing for well he is a Sydney FC journalist. Why do you think despite all his articles Fox never gets him on podcasts etc, because they know as well that he is basically a press release for Sydney FC (and they have a few of those already) Cornthwait quote, totally out of context, same as Baccus. He has no sources in Wanderers, the club does not trust him, the players don't trust him. He has put his own spin on totally unrelated incidents to draw the conclusion that he wants. That the Wanderers are hating the new guy, because he knows that when Gombau gets us firing (maybe not this year but next year and next season) when we once again take over Sydney FC, his bread and butter drys up. Don't buy into anything he writes. There will be changes, there will be hard times, but as someone already said what is worth doing is never easy. The club won't sack Gombau, some players will go because they can't play his system. I suspect he would like to push Rolly back deeper, I would be worried if I was Herd, as he isn't the type of player that Gombau likes. And Jayko, stop it with the racist abuse of Spanish people, it is childish, wrong and quiet frankly has no place in our club

    Spot on zakman. Imo..... Can't blame the squad. Same squad under foxe (who many ridiculed) drew with this lot and had the better of the match. If that twat carney didn't con the ref we probably win. Can't blame cornthwaite for not being able to play out from the back. He is the player he is. We improved last year when popa realised this and went direct and played deeper. Asking him to pretend to be mascherano will lead to the inevitable results we saw last night. The squad clearly isn't suited to how gombau wants to play so why do it? We are now looking at another huge clean out so gombau can bring in 'his players'. Popa was an exceptional a-league manager who got his players to play as a unit and play above their normal level. In 3 games we have played way below the ability level of our players. Last night was the lowest point in the club's short history and it is impossible for me to come up with any positives. Luckily my years of training as a leeds fan have me well prepared for these moments.

    I’m not ashamed to say I walked out at half-time last night. I’ve spent thousands of dollars following this team all over the country, stood in shitty little Western Sydney parks watching them during pre-season and even braved a ******* apocalyptic storm, hail and nearly zero-degree temperatures at Campbelltown for the Wanderers. But last night, the club and players disrespected me as a fan. I wouldn’t care if the boys lost every week if they just showed some heart and a passion for the club. None of them except Santa and maybe Clisby gave a **** last night. I’m not paying $400 a year to be served up that crap. So even though they’ve got my money and probably don’t give a **** what I think, I walked out in protest. We deserve more as fans and I think lots voted with their feet before and during the match. Add on to that, the cringe-fest that was the FFA’s decision to sellout our game for a few dollars in return for some gimmick movie ****. I was furious. The kebab I had on the way home was the best part of my night. That’s saying something. The only redeeming factor of the day was meeting up with the regular WSF peeps and our new American friends at Concord West before the game. Good food and conversation as always.

    The ball boy's job was to give the ball back asap - he did not, and appeared to try to hang on to it. He should not have been rewarded with Zullo's medal. Just another example of how stupid our society is getting when improper and reckless acts are lauded and the wrong person is blamed. Marrone should have been a bit more careful, but being Sydney in this modern age, a law firm will be quick on the phone to urge the ball boy's father to sue for assault. No wonder the kid was smiling afterwards.

    Well it’s Bossi so he loves to turn the screws on us but I tend to agree with a lot of that. If you’re gonna change philosophy you gotta be smart about it. Sure, you’re a coach first and foremost but that also means you’re the face of the club in many ways and you gotta know what you’ve got beyond the pitch - what does the club stand for, what do the fans value. When he first put the lineup out I said “well he obviously isn’t concerned what the fans are gonna think”. If he succeeds doing that he’s a genius, but if not he’s gotta wear it. I recall some instances from the Premier League where coaches misread the fans completely and I’m sure our European and South Americans have other examples from the leagues they follow: Gullit benching Shearer for a game against Sunderland! Lol what an idiot. Wasn’t long before he was gone. Andres Villas Boas trying to turn over the Chelsea squad. Even though he’d been given the green light to change by management, the speed and way he did it led to his sacking. Then Di Matteo comes in, treats the senior players with respect and they win the Champions League. Good coaches don’t just understand the Xs and Os, they know how to navigate the dressing shed, the boardroom, the fans and media. The people. Sending out a bunch of kids to get murdered in the derby doesn’t show a smart manager, it shows a dude who only knows one way. And it shows a dude who doesn’t seem to get that if he had a good result here he’d have extended his honeymoon period immeasurably. I would never be #anycoachout after a month but it’s concerning how he totally misread the fans, the club, the team.

    You know, I don’t see this “attitude” thing as much as others. I actually saw dudes trying out there, even when down 5. Risdon reaching for a pass on the sideline and collapsing on the ground in frustration when failing, Roly trying to beat heaps of dudes wiht the ball etc. I think when players are unsure of their jobs or unsettled in new roles then it can look like they aren’t trying. I think that’s what’s happening. There might be a few pissed off, but I’d say they are the dudes on the bench, not the starters.

    Not gonna criticise the team for anything after that farce, everything that could possibly have gone against them did. If Cornflakes handball is a pen then so is the pull on Riera, which happened first, rendering all other decisions after it moot. The fact that they reviewed their first goal and STILL said it was fine just shows what a joke the whole thing is. Like everyone else it seems, it's completely ruining my enjoyment of the game. One of the unique thrills of football is its spontaneity, both in the action and the celebrating/despair that comes with it. That's been completely ruined now. You can't get excited about anything because you're waiting for some people you can't see in a box somewhere to go to tell the ref to PAUSE THE GAME and go watch a replay. It's ludicrous. Here's hoping that in years to come we'll look back and laugh at that silly period when we had V.A.R.

    Wanderers Obliterated By Sydney FC

    This club is a shadow of itself, on and off the pitch. The club has been killed by suits, both the FFA and our own management. When we started we were raucous, we were fun, we gave the establishment something to worry about that. Exactly what a team from Western Sydney should be. On the pitch we just got results. Didn't matter how. We worked hard, we broke with pace, we used the atmosphere to intimidate and occasionally dominate. We were determined. We could be behind - even 3 goals! - and somehow we knew we were a chance to fight back. We were proud of our hard working cast-offs. Exactly what a team from Western Sydney should be. Then we got too big, and the mainstream (read: NRL and AFL) media didn't like it. All of a sudden our incredible atmosphere somehow became a problem. The FFA got tougher. Then our stupid club bought into it - apologising to the smurf coach for a dic pic which our club had no control over? **** off. At the same time we're trying to play some super-modern philosphy football and force a style on players that can't do it. If we want to have an academy with a style, great. But let's play that style when those kids are old enough - like in 10 years. Just get back to doing what we have to do to win (like pick your best back 4 FFS). We aren't unique anymore. We've lost our home ground advantage and we're just like all those other clubs, playing sorry football in stadiums way too big for the number of fans. This is what the A-league is and we're just another cog, just another plastic club in a plastic league that doesn't know what its strengths are. Another problem with the A-league is people will now be hoping we scrape into 6th and "do some damage" in the finals. I'd rather have a flare rebellion in the stands, lose 3 pts every week and come last.

    I’ll also add this: I have been in the RBB since WSW started though I’ve never considered it to be more important than the club. Tonight though, the RBB was all the club had because it certainly didn’t have anything on the pitch. Anyway, I’ll be back next week to do it all again. I don’t ask for much and couldn’t care less if we lost every game, I just want a bit of effort from the team.

    They counted everyone twice if they reckon there was 8k in the stadium... whether it rained or not it would’ve been the same abysmal crowd. I don’t think the issue is WSW, it’s the A-League. There’s sticking by your team through thick and thin, then there’s sticking by your team through a monotonous, stagnating league bereft of any optimism, innovation and ambition where it feels like you play the same teams every couple of weeks... Playing in a stadium several times what is appropriate, in a precinct void of life or general fun just amplifies the current stage of play in the A-League. Forget WSW, it’s a hard slog just being an A-League fan right now. The fact the FFA are oblivious to it makes things so much worse. SOS

    Been lurking here for a long time but had to make an account to express my view on this season. I honestly believe we could claim our first wooden spoon this season. We look like the worst team in the league by a mile right now. We have successfully played the two teams that did look worse then us (Roar, Victory) into form and now we reap our just rewards with the slide down the table. We actually look worse then we did last season! 14/15 was bad but I still enjoyed going to the games & watching us because I knew the ACL & Club world cup fixture congestion was what was killing us, the winning mentality amongst the squad & backroom staff was still there! This year I'm actually depressed, frustrated & no longer bothered to attend games or even flick it on the telly because the squad as a whole look bereft of confidence and passion to win. Every single time we have conceded an equaliser or gone behind this year we have NEVER looked like coming back. Speaks volumes about the state the club is in. I really hoped Gombau would steady the ship but his 3 games in charge have been terrible, actually looked worse then when we were treading water with Foxe. Surely I'm not the only one here that thinks we're a very realistic proposition for 10th this year, I just don't see where the improvement is going to come from within the squad. Also looked like Riera just had another dummy spit & faked his injury today because he doesn't want to play for Gombau which is a shame because he started so well...

    My perspective, Marrone deserved the red. The ball boy was completely unprofessional but the player can’t act in that way, try to grab the ball and then clumsily fall on top of him. Similar if you get hit or cop a bad tackle, doesn’t give you the right to retaliate. Feel for Marrone and Adelaide, not that it affects me, if that had happened to our team I’d be furious. Ropeable. Marrone is trying to win the game, but here is this little kid acting like a brat, purposely delaying play & frustrating the player in a high stakes, tense situation. In a cup final of all things, the A-League/FFA already has a poor image and the FFA cup is trying to get credibility, then this happens? This is supposed to be one of the most premier competition at the highest level of competitive football in this country and we don’t have professional or neutral ball boys for a final? This is not a home game, this is not All Age mens football played on council grounds and to win in those circumstances, not that Easts fans would care I’m sure. The only reaction I’ve seen from them is to comment on Marrone reaction not what led him to act like that in the first place. Certainly doesn’t help existing perceptions of the club. What doesn’t sit well with me has been the reaction post match and in the media. I’m not condoning Marrone’s action but commenting purely on the actions of the ball boy. To be rewarded for his poor behavior instead of getting reprimanded by getting a medal and lifting the trophy on the field? For an incident that he caused? What a joke. The A-League is already at record low interest levels, are we trying to turn this into a tin pot league? The Congress debacle, Spotless game called off, FFA’s running of the game, ridiculous ball boy incident and now Ange walking away when clearly things aren’t right behind the scenes..... Disillusioned with the way things are at the moment

    I don’t buy it. The game is postponed at short notice and all of a sudden a multi-million production is going to start preparing early with a day’s notice?? Things would have been booked in to be delivered, operation plans/schedules would have been created and accreditation and staff would have had to have been organised. No - it’s probably more like SOP/Spotless realised they ****ed up by overbooking the venue or the promoters of the festival ****ed over SOP by not letting them know the exact amount of time they needed to set-up. SOP have decided that it’s easier to move a football game than a million dollar production. They’ve told the club and FFA, given them lots of compensation as hush money and come up with an excuse about the ground. The club have probably waited until 3 days out to make the announcement look believable. It’s enough time to let everyone know, but not enough time for everyone to complain that they could have waited to see how it grew over the week. I’m figuring they couldn’t use ANZ because of the costs and all the trouble that would have gone along with organising staff and vendors for the venue with little notice. EDIT: Nobody is going to want to admit they ****ed up. It would look bad for SOP, so it’s in their interests to keep it quiet. The club and FFA would know the backlash it would receive if they admitted that we got bumped for a festival due to a mistake. It’s a no-win situation for everyone, so they had to come up with an excuse that didn’t make anyone look too bad. Grass not growing because of the weather still doesn’t look good for SOP but at least they can say it was partly out of our control.

    well look away if you don't like being told how it is. 1) Some of you would do well with learning some patience, all you generation Y's and Millennials would do well to understand this. Good times are only good after going through BAD. 2) If we shed fans, then so be it, they were not the fans we want long term, because they will not stick when the bad times come (see 1) 3) If we shed fans that's great, because those of us who started on day 1 and stuck with the team will be rewarded with better seats in the new Wanderland. If you are unable to handle a loss like this, if you are unable to handle lean years, then you best bet is to either follow a different sport, or pick an EPL club that is the flavor of the year (I would suggest Manchester City, and then next year you can pick a different club when they are going better) For the rest of you planning on sticking around, put your big boys pants on, knuckle down and lets show the club, the team and the coach that we are here and we support them.

    Club isn't getting rid of Gombau. Will destabilise the team more. They knew it would be a long process and the real proof will be next season. Popa chose this team. And as mack said, we didn't exactly light up results prior to him leaving. The Perth win was more the players doing it out of solidarity after Popa jumped ship. We treaded water under Foxe and now Gombau has come in and has to knock it all down and start from scratch. If the club didn't want this, they should have offered Milicic more money.

    This night was all-round just shambles. The game was ****ed. We walked out at half-time along with a couple of hundred other fans. I assume there would have been more leaving after the other two goals in the second half. Then to top it off, Balks and I had six bags of brand new toys to donate to the Smith Family appeal they had been promoting. We get to the donation point 30mins before the game starts and it is closed. We and three other people get told by an ANZ staffer that they had been open for two hours and didn’t get many donations so shut up shop. How ******* ridiculous. Of course most people aren’t going to be there two hours before a game. Many people left very disillusioned. We managed to leave our toys in the room after a side door was opened for us, but it is just typical of what is going on at the club. I don’t feel like going to games anymore. I don’t want to have to pay for tolls, parking and expensive crap food to watch this ****.

    Wow I don't think I've ever been in a thread where I pretty much unanimously agree with everything that's been said. I'm glad the forum residents are not falling for Ange's rubbish. The way he talks, you'd think he's transformed us into some kind of swashbuckling side that is the envy of the world. I watched the replay today, we were ******* average against one of the worst international teams I've ever seen. Then I went and watched all the highlights of our qualifying games, and lemme tell ya, we were lucky to even get the points we did in the group stage. This is the guy who, for the vast majority of the campaign, picked Brad Smith at left back, despite the presence of three better options (Behich, Gerbsach, Goodwin)! And despite the fact that he wasn't playing at all, but still apparently Spiranovic isn't playing at a high enough level so a donkey like Bailey Wright gets picked instead. This is the guy who led a qualification campaign where we had the worst results against Thailand out of anyone in our group, where we were a millimetre away from losing a playoff to a war ravaged Syria. If you wanna see how this system really stacks up, look at how we've played against the really good teams. Brazil, Germany, even Japan absolutely carved us up both home and away, we were incredibly lucky to get a point at home. The outlier is Chile, but they play the exact same way so we cancelled each other out, and...they finished 6th so aren't as good as they were. It's laughable that he pretends that we play this amazing brand of football, but, without doing the numbers, I reckon 75% of our goals are from penalties, corners or crosses. At the end of the game I actually wanted him to stay, because changing a coach now seemed silly, but his press conference just cemented what we all here think of him. Incredibly stubborn, egotistical, constantly bearing grudges. The 'people don't get me and never will' is laughable, and leads me to an analogy I've made before, that of a 14 yr old emo kid who wants everyone to love him and is shocked when people have the temerity to not do so. Not a single neutral around the world who watches us thinks we're anything other than abject. No-one is excited to see us in Russia. Which I don't give a **** about, but let's not pretend he's reinvented the wheel here. #ANGEOUT
