What are our chances at doing anything this year?

Zero. Same as the past few years. Our team isn't going to challenge the top teams. Our attack is okayish, but our defence looks porous once again. We've signed 3 non-scoring international players, and the international striker only scores 1 in every 3 and a half games. We'll be lucky to make the finals, and we'll probably end up fighting for the wooden spoon with Adelaide & Newcastle.

Compare our team to Melbourne City & Canberra United, we don't have a lot of international quality players, while Melbourne City have Kyah Simon, Alannah Kennedy, Rebekah Stott, Lydia Williams, Yukari Kinga, Steph Catley, Larissa Crummer, Jess Fishlock while Canberra have Caitlin Munoz, Ashleigh Sykes, Ellie Carpenter (who was playing for us but has likely left for more cash), Michelle Heyman, Larua Bassett & Elise Thorsnes.

Our team looks & is weak. We don't appear to have invested much if anything into signing Australian international players, Ellie Brush might be the only Matilda we have in our squad. We know how cheap our club board are, and I doubt they really care that much about spending money on the W-League when it makes next to nothing in revenue. We aren't going to compete with City & Canberra until that changes.

It's currently 1-0 Newcastle. Ball lobbed over the top, our central defender runs back then heads the ball over our keeper and the Jets striker just taps it in from a meter out.
