    Post Match Thread:

    Minutemen Blitz Melbourne City

    Note 1: Jumpei Kusukami had the unusual situation of coming on as a substitute, and then being substituted himself after coming on in the 10th minute for Alvaro Cejudo after his injury, then being replaced for tactical reasons by Brendon Santalab in the 85th minute.
    Note 2: This was Jumpei Kusukami's last game for the Wanderers, he was released the next day.
    Note 3: Ross McCormack had a penalty saved by Vedran Janetovic with the game at 2-1 Wanderers.

If that is the "more pragmatic approach" the club asked of Gombau then I take it, thank you very much.

So far an excellent team effort.

When we use 10 passes when 3 qill do we are frustrating as hell. Both goals scored with minimum passing. I rest my case

When we play the ball in to oriol and then go from there we look decent, less so when Thwaite thinks he’s a ball playing centre back

Losing baby Baccus from midfield and putting herd there instead was the wrong move. Needed to bring on Hammill instead of herd

We tried our best to let them back in by fading away in the second half, as usual, but a very good win all up.

Sorry to be argumentative but he was crap, left mini baccus exposed all second half. 

Thought Herd did really well when he came on but poor Baccus got torn apart when he moved to right back

Thought herd did well, but Baccus struggled at right back, I was surprised he didn’t bring herd on at right back

Anyone still wanna get rid of Riera? Completely different team when he's playing and fit. Not even because of the goals...our ability to maintain possession by playing the ball into him and him holding it up makes a huge difference.

Yep. Agree. I'd add Roly to that as well. So many times he waited to long to pass..

Does the club give everyone sleeping tabs at HT..? Two very different halves of football. On the go in the first, slow as anything in the second.

As soon as I saw the line up I knew we'd be allright. 

Cornflakes and Thwaite may not be the CBs Gombau wants, but they sure held the line.

Jumpei is all effort but ultimately crap left, right and centre, and how he leaves his FB exposed is unacceptable. 

Oriol and Baby Baccus men of the match for me.

Just back and i gotta say it, That ref Peter green just gives me the shits, he is shite, whereas the linos were pretty good tonight fair play.

But a win! bloody good to that leave that ground with something to show, i like Herd he is growing on me.

Cornflakes has a way of being wrong footed a lot of the time, and then just flapping his leg out. It cost us a penalty this game. Almost cost us a penalty last year in the derby when Brosque went down in the box. 

I hope we get a top class central defender because that is what we need. Cornflakes can be back up. It's not just about being able to play the ball out, but football smarts in general. We also need a winger to replace Jumpei.
