I was with Manfred and heard the story firsthand from the garlic sauce. I know who the third player is. Anyone want to take a guess... 

I honestly don't see what the problem is here.  If you are just coming home from clubbing, you obviously need to grab something to eat before the game.

Anyway my guess is Roly.  I recall something from his time at the Nux.

Hamil

Bingo. We have a winner. 

No wonder our defence was terrible. Our GK and two CB's decided as adults and professional football players to eat a kebab three hours before the game. Boggles the mind.

This Kebab story reminds of when my team played in the state cup a few years back, out in the shire somewhere, backing up after our Saturday game, it was the next day after we had an FA cup night out with an open bar in Glebe 

half the team turned up Kebab in hand straight from king st Newtown, (king of Yeeros for all you kebab fans) the other half raided the canteen of its sausage roll supply.

While a bunch of shire types ran round around cones in matching tracksuits. apprarently their club had given them the Saturday game off to train.

after having the first shot of the game we got done about 13 nil

I figured based on your PM, but he didn't incriminate himself unlike you :lol:

It's alright, I'll shout you a wine at our next trivia night.

So... they should have had theirs kebabs closer to kick off or had another one at half time?  I don't get it. :unknw:

Elrich was pretty good in the first half, immense even. second half did look like kebab fatigue though.

Perhaps it was the lack of carbs in the Lebanese bread, next time I think they should go for the double instead of just the single. 1 piece = 1 half. Perhaps just go with a HSP & those chips are the missing piece to the puzzle.

I also feel another factor to consider is the low fat content used to cook the meat. Being from Newcastle, I don’t know if they have the technique down pat, clearly don’t have experience or traffic of the many Sydney kebab houses. Not enough fat so they’ve burnt it off all in the first half.

You need to take your pre match meals seriously, underestimating the lack of carb & fat content here has hurt the boys. They’ll learn for next time.

We go again for the derby this week.

We should ask Waterson what a pregame kebab might do to elite performance.

Yeah I think we need to get a professional opinion on this from someone qualified.

I’m sorry but am I the only one who thinks that the kebab is getting a little too much attention

If we are blaming defeats on kebabs then I think we are really grasping at straws 

I had a freaking meat pie on the weekend before my game I played a blinder!

All be it quite a lower level haha

I don’t have a problem with the kebabs either tbh, I could think of much worse things to be eating before a game. It was 3 hours before kick off too, it’s not like they came running on for the warm up with one in hand

It's just like the harbour cruise incident, people are rightly questioning if they even give a ****.

Kebab gate - we are entering into uncharted territory. What I think is equally important here: did they have a dump before the game?

Three squaddies linking up with a winger as RB, with a so called goalkeeper behind them - this makeshift defense held against City. It didn't against Jets. Also: as soon as Treejack came off the game changed.

I really think we should SKIP this, especially as I'm trying to eat my breakfast.

I agree, and I won't be asking the question if anyone has "heard" anything...

Not really. What they have for lunch is a very different issue to them going on a cruise the day after a loss. 

Besides, whose to say that they’re not all smashing a bowl of easy Mac before a game every other week? Seeing them eat a kebab is great and all but without comparison to what they normally eat, I don’t see how it can be even suggested as a point of blame.

I don’t know about anyone else, but anytime I’ve eaten a Kebab at any time other than the end of a night out, I felt like a lazy, fat bloated derro.

Certainly not the food of champions, is it.

Yeah... people defending kebab gate; at the end of the day they are professional athletes and their body is their livelihood. The epitome of unprofessional conduct is your club captain and 2 other senior members eating one of the most unhealthy foods there is before they go to work for the day. The captain part infuriates me the most because your "leader" and I say that sarcastically because Hamill is anything but a leader and I still don't know why he's captain is supposed to set the standard and example. Disgusting behaviour all around.

I wouldn't say the most unhealthiest food lol alot better than maccas/kfc but still agree, not something you should be eating before a professional game.. Does the club even have nutritional specialist looking after the boys diets?? 

Maybe they know their time is coming to an end with the club so they just don't give two f**ks anymore and have already started their off season eating habits early?

Was speaking to someone who works in Football, he said that it isn’t as big a thing as it is made out to be.

Said they probably hadn’t organized lunch or didn’t have anything to eat, so went with a kebab. Had we won the game would it have been a big issue? No. Can you blame the kebab on all three players having howlers in the second half? No. As long as the players aren’t making this a habit pregame then not a big thing.

Yes... three blokes having a kebab killed the game for us... :rofl:

I don’t know, at the end of the day Football comes down to 1%’ers. Nutrition is just one of those things professional athletes need to get there body right. Is it the reason they lost the game? Probably not, but in a season where so much has gone wrong & we needed everything to go right (to make the finals), a kebab prematch isn’t the way to go about it. I guess it says more about the players mental state than anything else.

My major questions are why hadn't the club arranged a lunch? They went to Newcastle the day before I believe.

Doing some quick Doctor Google research suggests an elite sports team should be eating a pre-game meal as a group roughly 4 hours before the game and that meal should be something like a smallish piece of chicken with rice & steamed vegetables, turkey or chicken on a wrap with vegetables, or a small amount of pasta with beef mince & tomato, then a small low fat snack 2 hours before the game like yogurt or a fruit smoothie, and just prior to the match a quick digestion carb heavy sports drink or gel.

I'd put it this way, I doubt Jerrad Tyson even if he was sitting on a 12 man bench for a friendly, with Neuer as #1 and De Gea as the first choice sub, would ever eat a sloppy oil drenched kebab from a random local shop as a pre-game meal. Imagine if the shop had poor food safety, or got a bad batch of meat, and we lost three players to food poisoning before the match.

“I’m lucky the Wanderers are a club that crosses all the Ts and dots all the Is in terms of supporting the players and I’m happy to help the next generation of players across Australia.”

That clearly isn't happening with these players.
