"Our club unites" "Your club divides" something like that from memory.

Thanks to WSW people now hold up their postcodes at matches.

WSW have united the West like never before.

All ESFC have done since 2012 is given their members another outlet to look down on the West, like they do in their daily lives.

Tifo fail once again.

My first thought was that's wrong, they've got it back to front.

But then I realised they don't mean the fans or the greater football community. It refers to SFC uniting with the FFA and the referees.

I've got an Adelaide mate who's been to two games. Last year's RBB Adelaide TOD and yesterday's Derby. Both times Active have walked out in a blaze of pyro. Both times we've won and not seen the winning goal. Both times he's faced an overwhelming police presence. He thinks it's always this good. But we know it's distorted thinking based on limited experience. Sigh.

I'd love the postcode thing to be done again at the next derby.

I know we've done it before, but it would reinforce our Westy passion, and prove to the East that they are a distant entity that we, west of the Pacific Hwy/Chatswood/Redfern/Kogarah don't give a shite about that part of our city.

RBB tarnishes glorious night for Wanderers

Fans who lit flares at the A-League derby face bans and possible prosecution, but organisers and police are broadly happy with the first clash between Sydney FC and the Wanderers to be held at Jubilee Stadium.

Western Sydney’s delight at winning their second derby of the season was tarnished by the lighting of a number of flares inside and outside the ground, and a brief standoff between a small group of supporters and police near the end of the game.

It’s understood two fans who lit flares and one who carried them inside the ground have been identified, and face five-year exclusions from all football matches once CCTV examination is complete.

Among the 14 ejected was one of the Red and Black Bloc’s “capos” or leaders for standing on a seat, and a group fans left in sympathy — ironically, just before Wanderers captain Mitch Duke scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory.

Security staff remove a flare during Friday night’s derby.

But police confirmed no arrests were made throughout the night, among a crowd of 18,501, and A-League boss Greg O’Rourke said the security review of the game would focus on weeding out the handful who were responsible for the flares.

“We will review the reports on Monday as we would post any derby and then determine if we require further action,” he said in a statement.

“Whilst we are disappointed to see flares at the match, any consequences will be directed to individuals identified with flares through our normal banning process.”

The win lifted Western Sydney to within two points of the top six, at least until the end of the round, reigniting hopes of making the finals.

“There's no set ceilings, there's no particular goals,” interim coach Jean-Paul de Marigny said.

“I don't want to be boring but it's all about one game at a time and getting the boys to believe in each other, which they do, and getting close to each other, which they are.

“They're ticking all the boxes and it's great to see players expressing themselves and maximising their ability.”

Did you view the original tackle as a straight red? It looked to me like a clear example of serious foul play - lunge, unecessary force and fair chance to injure opponent.

Thoughts from you prydz & other refs paul? Unlimited?

With Faghani in the middle, I don't think he was going to give that as a straight red. This isn't KGJ who sends off Saba for a badly timed ankle tap.

Looking at it again (it's around 3:45 in the highlights on the A-League website), I'm gonna back Faghani's decision. Yes, he lunges but it appears to be at ball height and it's only one leg. It's more late than anything.

I think there is a  case for signing a manager for next season pretty soon, with Macarthur coming in and competing in the player market. We really have to get a move on with resigning the players we want to retain, and having the managerial situation sorted will make the decision clearer for the players. Certainly if we win 2 of our next 3 against Roar, City and the 3rd derby, I'd be signing JP. The foreign coach experiment has failed for us and does not have a good track record across the league. I doubt there will be many better local options than JP. As other's have said, signing JP would give us stability, as he knows the set up and players.

I agree sign J,P.D. now he already got the runs on the board, he know the players, players have confidence in him and he understand the A League how it is run, let him settle the ship so far so good.

Sounds good, a quick look at the cove's twitter account and seeing hashtags such as **** the west and west scum shows which part of the city they represent.

 

and they wonder why a lot of the west never supported esfc, to be fair that is just one of the reasons :P

FLARE UP: ‘CAPO’ EJECTED AS RBB FACE SANCTIONS

A Red and Black Bloc ‘capo’ was among 14 people ejected but organisers and police are broadly happy with the first clash between Sydney FC and the Wanderers at Jubilee Stadium.

A proper journalist may have wondered why a capo got thrown out for standing on a seat when it’s done all the time, or why none of the cove were thrown out for doing exactly the same thing during the game. Maybe ask some questions, do some investigating, you know, journalist stuff. 

Anti smurf rhetoric isn't part of the media metrics...anti west only.......because,you know....we're the baaaaaaaaaaaadies.

Re Georgies red.

Guy is on his back trying to get up after tackle, player between his legs, leg in the air.

I challenge anyone to get up from this position without extending the leg forward.

 

Id like to see pics of the kids face to see just how much contact had been made. Didn't look like there was even a scratch there on the night. Which may be why we kept falling over as we forgot to wear studs.

It might hurt his brain if he has to think a little.

There was a slight deliberate action that moved towards his neck/face that meant he was always going to get sent, sure not a lot of (if any) contact but even no contact he would of went.  Seems like a top bloke DG and bleeds for the cause but he is prone to a brain explosion and a few weeks off wont hurt us as his last few weeks have not been good and he can refresh. 

Be interesting to see who we play there though, Tate will fill one side and  if Kamau is fit would love to see him on the left cutting inside with those runs could cause problems for teams but if Almight Bruce is not fit will be interesting Ziegler, Tass, Jurman, McGowan cannot play wide, Wilmering, Elrich gone so JP might need to make a decision around a youth product or someone like Muller, Duke, Sullivan or even Adam,

Cordier had one game at Left Wing Back last season against Adelaide in the first attempt by MB at 3 ATB.

Possible to do if ...you put your left leg in then your left leg out (twice) then shake it all about... ok, ok. No need to get narky, I know my way out.

I love how they write ‘capo’ as if it’s some dangerous, foreign term to be cautious of lol

The bald guy in the blue shirt with the chinos and dress shoes who appeared to be head of venue security had the shits cause of the fence situation. As I said in the security thread, most of the fences were hanging on by a bees dick anyway so the slightest contact was always going to cause some sort of damage. It was hilarious watching him bring over the temp fencing which did absolutely nothing cause it couldn’t be placed close enough and kept falling over. 

I was off to the left of the RBB where he standing right in front of me and I could see him just pointing randomly at people in the crowd with his offsiders. Seemed like he worked out who/what a capo was and spitefully ejected him as an up yours to the collective for damaging the fence. Where I was, pretty much most people were standing on their seats so I don’t see any other reason why they chose to do that...

Quality journalism in this country is almost dead.

That is the most saltiest of salt / sea salt / Himalayan Pink salt /Lake Eyre salt articles I have ever read.

Bossi, you are a complete flog.

I have a feeling that if they'd won he wouldn't have written all those incidents.....   which translates into major SALT. 

Anyone has Polenz's crying girl meme?

Wow. I'm a Jets supporter with a special dislike of Sydney. It's not biased, mate.

I have red and black coloured glasses 100% of the time and while i can marginally "agree" on the game commentary, the bias comes from his observations outside of the field of play....  absolute w@nker

I was in the second row directly to the right of RBB and the guy right in front of me spent the entire match kicking the fence. So the state of it could possibly be described you've described. I genuinely don't understand why. Kicking the shite out of the fence for two hours for what purpose? Why does this person want to damage property? 

I'm no party pooper, i dont want to rain on anyones parade. And i was chanting faaarrrk off east sydney on friday night with the rest. Passion is not a crime but some of the behaviour on friday night was, and i dont get it

Yep, Mathieu has been playing LB (his natural position) in the NPL trials of late.

He'll fill in at LWB, unless Bruce recovers & then a decision will need to be made as to whether he or Tate starts on the left
