Unlucky but a lot better than the last few games. First game that the team showed some passion , hunger and looked to fight as a team. If we play the next two games with the same intensity we will make the 6.

Still hard to understand why when chasing the game you don't put Santa (a proven goal scorer) in.

The players should hang their heads in shame for what they have produced this season. Tonight they showed they have some fight, so where the **** has it been all season?  Most are a disgrace to the jersey and to the fans for what they have produced. 3-1 is a flogging according to most here. If Gombau goes so be it, but the majority of players should eff off as well.

The next manager, whoever that may be, will have to produce results straight away, regardless of whether he choses the squad or not...it will ALL be on his head.

It will ALL be his fault regardless of whether the players put in or not. The standard has been set.

I'd suggest as we were already a man down, that putting on a second striker would mean we'd have a 1 man midfield, or we'd have to play with one player out wide for one side of the field, which considering Victory were tearing us to shreds on the counter wouldn't be a good move.

I don't have a problem with the Clisby sub...that was a reaction for the red card although they were also down to 10.

We had most of the possession so we did not need to use Satiro speed as we weren't playing the counterattack. Santa would have offered something in the box....even if he was to replace Riera.

Can’t blame Gumby for that one (although the sotirio sub was an odd one)

Thwaite threw the game with 2 minutes of total stupidity. First to give the corner away (soon as he did You knew we’d be made to pay)

Shoutout to Josh Risdon, Australian international fullback who jogged over to Antonis, then stood and watched as Antonis stopped, looked at the other side of the field, took two touches to get it onto his right foot then chipped a cross past Risdon with the laziest of attempted blocks.

We must have a serious lack of fullbacks of that effort is going to get to the world cup. I suspect he'll be the first name Arnie crosses out once he takes over.

Risdon played better for Perth, like Roly his time at WSW hasn't improved him.

He's gotten the blame for the players ineptness before, why stop now.

The next manager will and should be judged by the same standard no matter who the squad is next season .

If they play crap he will be to blame.If we lose a game it will be the managers fault, if we draw it will be the managers fault. If the players on the field can't pass, make defensive errors, or get sent off it will ALL be on the managers it  head....Just remember If we lose a derby it will be his fault, it will never be the players..

One of the great things about supporting Wanderers is that I get to see all of the season's best goals - Nabbout vs Jets, . Deng (and almost George) vs Victory.  Cejudo's finish tonight was right up there.

According to Simon Hill he doesn't make the finals bye, bye....apparently.  The standard has been set....recruit a heap of duds who can't pass or play with passion and then blame the manager. The new manager, regardless of who it is or who is in the squad is going to be judged by the same standard.
