Wanderers,

Dorrans suspended for 1 week , who will fill his role ?

don't know how mutch time Mutch will get 

Probably to early for Duke,

Hopefully Muller will be ready to go.

Mourdakutis and McGowan are still out I think

Willmering may get a start at left back 

 

Phoenix in a bit of trouble with injuries and suspension.

Cameron Devlin is available for selection for the Western Sydney Wanderers match on Sunday.

David Ball suspended for 2 weeks

Joshua Laws sustained an ankle injury during the Wellington Phoenix versus Central Coast Mariners match on 14 Feb 2021. The club is currently awaiting the results of an MRI, and Law’s availability for selection for Sunday’s match versus Western Sydney Wanderers will be dependent on the outcome of this scan. 

Tomer Hemed sustained a low-grade hamstring strain during the Wellington Phoenix versus Sydney FC match on 8 February 2021. Hemed’s estimated return to play will be two weeks. 

Jaushua Sotirio sustained a Grade 2 MCL injury to the knee during training prior to the Sydney FC match on 8 February 2021. Sotirio’s estimated return to play is now four weeks. 

Luke DeVere sustained a serious knee injury during the Wellington Phoenix versus Central Coast Mariners match on 14 Feb 2021 and is due for surgery today. DeVere’s return to play is anticipated to be 10-12 week

 3 forwards gone for this weekend, new man in is Charles Lokoli-Ngoy who missed the cut for Phoenix at the start of the season.

Main central defender gone, their middle of the park defence has declined since Taylor left and with out DeVere out makes them vulnerable further than they have been this season. 

Devlin back in is a plus beside the Mexican , these 2 will have to have big games if they are to worry us.

I posted on thread for round 9 that I received  a call and message from Ticketmaster yesterday saying that my seats and all other travelling wanderers fans have had their seats moved from the north stand as originally purchased to the western stand the reason given "so that all wanderers supporters  will be sat  together "  no further explanation given,  methinks there has been some fallout from the mariners game and yes the cops want to make sure these Western Sydney "socca" hooligans comply with their made up restrictions..  hope they are not too heavy handed  lets see

Cringlia Hotel? If so, great pub. I used to go there a few times with a friend that used to live in Cringlia.

I was advised by someone a week ago that he was only taken off as a precaution and to ensure he plays against Melbourne City.

I would guess that he will be one of the players omitted if what you're saying is true, or he could be completely bluffing and could start on Sunday.

We have enough depth in the squad (especially with the players returning from injury) that we should be able to fit someone else in at AM without too many dramas.

definitely did not train with the team was off to side with one of the trainers doing some ball work and lots of short sprints , Robbo interview this morning said he had a niggle.

If Troisi doesn't make it and with Dorrans suspended, will Mutch start the game even if he is underdone?

The obvious trio would be Baccus, O'Doherty and Lesiotis if Mutch isn't ready but Lesiotis isn't even on the squad list.

Looking at the training videos this week, I haven't seen McGowan, Muller and Troisi training so they could be out. Mutch was training so I would assume he'll be playing this week. What I don't understand is Lesiotis was in the training videos and not even mentioned in the squad. Is the poor guy ever going to get some game time?

Ticketmaster is making the away bay sit in the Western Conference which is the opposite section of the hill. Whatever you do AVOID THE HILL, it's **** and you have to stand the whole time.

The TV crew film from the western conference so it'll be a bit odd where they plan to put the RBB.

Nice! a friend of mine lived off Lake Avenue (not far from the public school). 

We would always enjoy the walk down to the pub but walking back was hell as my friend lived on a very steep hill. Plus, there was an awesome place that would sell Burek near him as well.

I take my comment back about Muller, he has been at training (top right pic is him):

So Muller maybe added to the team.
I feel Robbo might have him off the bench. Maybe Mutch will play CAM and then Muller replace him in the second half.

Maybe he isn't showing enough in training to deserve a spot. Robinson has been quoted as saying he is honest with his players about where they need to improve, and maybe he hasn't shown enough yet to earn it (he's also got a lot of experienced players in front of him).

Looks like we can only book tickets in the concourse (downstairs) section of the Western Grandstand.

This needs to be a comfortable win tomorrow. Pheonix back line has been slapped together with bang average midfielders.

Ball obviously having a well deserved break. Cam Devlin coming off an injury.

If we can’t kill off these sorts of teams inside the first half, we should be worried
