    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 1

    Higher up the park? When we already have 5 wingers?
  3. When Popa signed Llorente he had only played a handful of games in that position previously and was not specifically brought in as a LB. https://www.wswanderersfc.com.au/news/popovic-hails-squad-depth-after-llorente-signing It would have been interesting to see if Popa used Raul differently to Gonebau. Personally I'm hoping Babbel plays him higher up the park as Raul is a good crosser of the ball and can better utilize the strengths of Riera. We should be building our team around our imports. unfortunately, East Sydney has shown us how to do it to great effect. In my opinion, we played 3 imports out of position and underutilized the strengths of Riera who terrorised defenders in the air when given the service. Gonebau played Raul in a secondary position. Cejudo came to us as a winger but hardly played there. Roly was most effective for Wellington playing higher up the park as an ACM rather than a DCM. Gonebau had him receiving a short pass from our CD's in our own half and then he passed sideways. We were our own worst enemy.
  4. It'll be due for a knock down/rebuild before we're ready to bid again
  5. I wonder if they have thought of a way of reaching 40,000 capacity so it can be used in a World Cup bid. Did anyone notice anything in the tender documents?
  6. Today
  7. That, combined with the fact fullbacks are generally underpaid in the world football market is why left fullbacks get picked up by Australian clubs. Having 5 visa spots to play with also helps.

    World Cup 2018

    Can anyone imagine this happening in return? Hahaha That’s our best chance of points! I swear the FFA will be happy for us to **** up so Arnie can swing in as the hero. Blame Ange for the World Cup and let Arnie save us.

    What this discussion shows is how important it is to get the visa players in the right POSITIONS. As much as I like Raul, LB is a waste of a visa spot. CB, DM, AM, ST, and a winger/attacker. The spine plus a vibrant wide attacker. That should be the starting point. Then if you manage to find a great Aussie striker or DM etc, you’re better off and can have another visa player in a luxury attacking position. I guess LB is kind of understandable because they’re so thin on the ground, but if you do that then a) you’ve gotta find some good Aussie talent in the important spine positions, and b) he’s got to be able to be very solid defensively at least, otherwise you might as well have an Aussie there.

    Cmon, you can admit it buddy. He did good
  11. I was one of Hamill's biggest critics...but he did OK last season....hopefully he can push on a bit more under the new Gaffer.

    If roly goes then in midfield it will be bozanic and Baccus senior or bozanic and foreign cm or foreign cm and Baccus senior hmmmm

    I remember an Ante Milicic interview of sorts where he said the same thing in the other direction. When he went to Europe he suffered injuries because of the soft pitches and his body not coping.

    Hamill is a decent cb for hal and will be more consistent with a quality left footed cb next to him, still not impressed with roly or bozanic in attack especially if we go 442. If we end up trying a 442 I'd like to see Oreo and Majok up front giving us a height advantage, then can adjust playing style taking Majok off or to play wing. I seriously think Santa's time is up and won't get much game time.

    The captains of Australia, Denmark and France have written a letter to FIFA asking for Guerrero to be allowed to play at the Wold Cup.

    Has anyone purchased the coaches black jacket from the club, just wanted to know if the right size to get as I don't want a medium to be to small or a large be like a skirt down to my knees https://wanderersshop.com.au/saleitems/2017-18-mens-coaches-jackets
  19. A couple of years ago, at a fan forum, JT was talking about the pitches in Australia being much harder than in Europe. It messes with the joints and muscles of players who aren't used to it, especially when they are injury prone already. Ono, Castelen, Andreu, Cejudo, Vidosic - they needed extra TLC. We will want to have our marquees on the pitch. Big names in sick bay don't do any good.

    I knew I'd cop it for that. But he does look like a weazel.
  21. Don't care what they look like only if they play football

    He is returning to Villarreal where it all began for him.

    Definitely agree the playing gap is hard to overlook. Wages would be interesting, many La Liga clubs offered to let him train but all came offering hugs, not contracts. He’d need to have his leg amputated if he got injured in China, I can’t see him there simply for health reasons. MLS maybe? **** bundesliga team? We shouldn’t be complaining about ugly. We’ve had both Mullen and Clisby on our squad list. Both have a face like a smashed crab

    Big risk given he hasn't played for well over a year due to a pretty devastating achilles injury. Plus he'd still be expensive - and he looks like an ugly little weazel.
