In recent days I have arrived at the conclusion that whats good for the game is good for my club, and vice versa. The final score is probably going to be "football 3 - RW 0". I drink to that. Cheers Bec.

 

PS I recall the Nov 2013 game in the freezing cold rain. I witnessed how the VIC supporters where released from their pub in Parra by police and herded up to the ground like cattle. It was a shocking sight. The RBB has never seen anything remotely like it.

Record crowd anticipated for a normal season game.

Is that from a source inside WSW? Ticket sales would indicate that.

 

 

Will depend on how many members rock up (normally 10% don't attend), but everything points to a near capacity turnout

You'd think it would be a season-high turnout. A-League has been all over the media this week.

Of course I would like us to win tomorrow but a part of me doesn't really care about the result. I think having a sell out crowd is a win for all football fans...hopefully the attendance at other grounds will be up as well.

Some news from our end - Valeri out for another week with this mystery illness.

 

Almost certainly our starting side:

 

Vukovic

Geria - Delpierre - Broxham - Georgievski

Bozanic - Mahazi - Finkler

FBK - Berisha - Barbarouses

 

Let's go!

The Victory doesn't stand a chance as I will once again be wearing my lucky trousers.

I was going to say unwashed of course but then I realised if you wear them to our home games they would get a nice drenching organically anyway!

The weekly post match washing machine tour must put the magic back into the trousers. If we make 11 wins then I shall donate them to the yet to be established wsw museum.

My take on the whole Derby matter - we're so lucky we're in a league that for a 10-team comp has some incredible rivalries.

 

WSW/MV games also have an added edge in Melbourne purely for the off-field battles. Nothing like this exists against City, even though they're a bigger rival.

 

Hard to explain the dynamic to someone that hasn't attended a game.

Easy.

 

Melb Victory v Melb City = Man United v Man City respectively. (Most successful club with rich history vs plastic oil miners)

 

WSW v ESFC = Liverpool v Everton respectively. (More successful on the continental stage, and soon domestic stage vs poor younger cousin that's ways there abouts)

 

WSW v Victory = Liverpool v Man Unitef

You try telling a real Man City fan that they are the plastic team, when they spent their entire life supporting the "poor cousin" while Man U are followed by fans who their own captain said were more interested in eating prawn sandwiches than making noise, that's if they even live in Europe never mind Manchester!

 

Comparing our derbies to the England ones - or any other games - diminishes our games. We have our own rivalries for our own reason. For example, the merseyside derby has many families who have split allegiances - some members of the family support Liverpool, some support Everton. I highly doubt that is going to happen in Sydney!

I hate making comparisons with WSW are the this or that English team of the a league. We aren't the Liverpool the man utd (or even the Everton) of the a league. We are Western Sydney Wanderers! That's enough for me, we have our own culture and our thing. Leave the we are the man utd of the a league crap to Sydney.

 

Thats said as you have made a merseyside derby comparison (and I have deep hatred of Liverpool FC that knows no bounds of bitterness) so I can't stop myself!

 

- merseyside derby comparison doesn't work that well as there is no gegraphic divide in Liverpool for the two teams. if there is a geographic element. Everton fans are almost always from Liverpool or have a close family connection. Liverpool fans are from Norway, Ireland, Australia... (So I think WSW are more Everton)

 

- I'm being pedantic but Everton are actually the older of the two teams by quite a few years

 

Everton are community based team that develops its own players (ie more WSW than esfc)

 

I like to think That Kopites are a bunch of deluded bellends with an over inflated sense of importance and who moan when things don't go there way (see Esfc)

 

 

Liverpool are the media darlings

 

In short to sum up my incoherent rant, if you made me compare (which nobody is) we are more Everton than Liverpool.

 

Funnily on the split family thing, my whole family are Blues (in the Everton sense) but there is a split on the esfc / WSW front as a couple of followed esfc pre WSW and have stuck with it (which I have to respect but not like)

 

To bring it back on topic.

 

WSW 3 victory 0

 

Bridge 19 mins

Vidosic 35 min

Santalab on as replacement in the 70th min yellow card 74th min goal 76th min

Melbourne Victory rivalry is more to do with the support from both clubs. SFC rivalry is more to do with geographic and demographic reasons. There is more of a hate about what SFC stands for, therefore I would say the rivalry is stronger there.

 

MVFC rivalry is ok with me as it doesn't have that real hatred and is usually a pretty amazing spectacle when both teams are firing. A far better spectacle than the SFC v MV one imo (even though there is more hate between those two). That's why I tend to enjoy these games more than the derbies against SFC. There is also something in that the demographic of their support and outlook on things from their supporters tends to be similar to ours. SFC and Heart/City are also more alike.

Victory = I respect

ESFC =  My hate for this sewerage has no limits, despise the mother****ers so much.

NT = admire, nearly as good as the RBB

RBB = no peer, simply the greatest actives in the A league

Le Cove = one chant at least 4 times a game, a joke, a total waste, not worth rating on any scale

Biggest games on the A league calendar on & off the pitch (in my opinion) = WSW vs Victory

I love to hate Berisha, a grub in every way, should have come to us, Home of the Grubs!

All I can say bring it on, **** the Victory

One night at the World Cup we were drinking in the streets after a Socceroos games with the locals and a esfc guy who was walking past had to be pulled away from us by his mates because I had RBB on my jersey. We were ignoring him and continued talking to the locals.

 

Two nights later we bumped into two Victory fans who were just trying to get wasted, watch footy and have fun like us, and they called us 'frenemies'.

 

Sums it up for me - one a group of try hard wannabee tough guwankers, the others you respect but hate for 3 days a year.

I can't remember being more excited or keener for a WSW match than this one. I'm not sure why. I've been there since before match 1 S1. The past couple of weeks and the outcome and "return to normal" is an obvious factor but there's more to it than that. Thinking about it as I write, another factor is feeling less concerned about what the police might do.

 

Hopefully those around me in bay 7 (and elsewhere) will be much more active than usual this year and the poznan will be back to its best participation rate right around the stadium.

 

COYW - Bring. It. On.

I did say I can't remember! It was a different anticipation then. Maybe I was more worried with the higher stakes. This time there's a sense of relief or release mixed in with the anticipation of the match itself and all that will go with it and being at Wanderland with my Wanderers family to partcipate with all the gusto I can muster (that will be accepted by those around me in the sit down seats). I was obviously excited for the champions league but somehow this time is different and certainly more relaxed and easier to allow to wash over me.

I'm taking my dad to his first Wanderers game tomorrow. I thought I would try to give him the best possible experience outside of a derby.

 

He's a big rusted-on AFL fan but my sister and I have slowly been converting him over the years. He now watches all our games on TV while we're at the ground and discusses them with us when we get home.

 

A few days before last week's match, he asked if we were boycotting. I said yes we were, and I was getting ready to be told we were being stupid for doing it because my dad is very straight-laced.

 

To my total surprise, he said it was good we were doing it and that the FFA needed to change the system. He was also pleasantly surprised to see the terrace empty. I don't think he realised how big the boycott was going to be.

 

I'm not sure how he will react to some of the diss chants though but I'm sure it will be interesting either way :)

 

Anyway, In + 2 and hopefully a new convert!

 

Hey CaptainJess, give us an update after the game. It would be great to hear how it all went. Let us know if he has enjoyed it.

Good to see in club email Ins & Outs the RBB is included as In. Also that Glorious is In as our new walkout song. The real rivalry this week highlights is between Actives, fans & the FFA. At least for now our weekends are back. The Split and bans have impacted 56 so let's hope we lift for 90 tomorrow

Yep, only work, births, deaths, marriages & Christmas parties are plausible excuses. 

I'd even go so far to say work or deaths only...and even then I would question work..  :crazy:

For the record, it's 16,401 in Feb 2014 v Roar

 

Ticket update.

 

WSW has put extra North-East GA seats up as the south end has now sold out for the first time this season!

 

FIRE UP, biggest non-derby regular season crowd at Pirtek coming up.

Any idea how many Mexicans travelling North Victory?

 

We've pretty much sold out a full bay of 300-400. Going to be huge.

 

We're at the wrong end of the stadium this season (having moved from Bay 48 ....at the right end)

 

Tomorrow night's game, with a great view of the travelling Victory supporters ...from upstairs Western stand.... will be one of the few games I'll be happy to be down that end.

 

Not that I wouldn't rather be up the other end..... but.... you know what I mean. Should be a bit of a spectacle in the Away Bay.....for a change.

 

COYW!

I'm there. I'll be the one in the red and black. Goes a bit nuts when we score and crushes the nearest of his kids. Loves it when the ref makes bad calls and has to self sensor.

 

Say gday :)
