  1. The best thing about tonight. That flog Baumjohan still hasn’t won a derby since he defected.

  2. Reminded me of many of our ACL wins! Great show of commitment and tenacity from the team. Fantastic effort! I'm hoping some confidence will flow on from that win in the coming games. Congrats to the RBB for their MAMMOTH effort! Can't remember when they sounded so powerful!! ❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤

  3. Corrica: "We didn't lose the game. We were disadvantaged by the game lasting only 98 minutes, not 115. Bobos penalty kick wasn't to high, but the dimensions of the goal posts clearly are questionably. Also, it was an away game, and the long journey zapped our energy. But even though the score would suggest that we lost the game: we did not lose the game."

  5. You've got to give him all the respect as he decided to put the club first instead of dropping everything and deciding to spend some time with his family and his new born daughter. Especially the fact that it's his first born child I'm curious to see where he goes from here. I could see him probably playing in some for some English National League club (please Notts County, sign him!) or maybe for some Irish first tier club. Who knows. But...I wished him all the best on twitter and instagram and He liked it. What a top bloke

    I really rated him. I know he didn't score as many as we wanted, but whenever he was on the pitch I felt he could something. I felt he put his heart into it each time he played Wish him the best

  9. I seriously cannot believe that this type of shite is still continuing. What is it about Wanderers fan behavior that the cops have a problem with, and that they feel they need to use excessive policing to control? Seriously, when was the last time there was an issue at a Wanderers game, yet we still have riot police at our games! Why??? There are never any riot police at Eels games, yet they are the last one's to have issues at their game. Go to any Eels match and offensive language (wow - the use of the F-word!!) is common spoken English. From both Eels and away fans. Go to an Eels

  11. Lederer had zero influence on the success at the start. He'd only taken over 3 months before the ACL first leg. Our early success was done to Popa & the coaching staff, Adam Waterson the fitness coach who during that early success was the best strength & conditioning coach any professional sports team in Australia has ever seen and the players. I'd rate the supporters and the atmosphere they provided as being more useful to the club than anything Lederer has ever done.

  12. Is there anything more satisfying than watching Baumjohann get dumped on his backside a dozen times every derby and get up flailing his little midget arms around having a cry while we all laugh at him? Never gets old that.

  13. One critical thing that many are missing is CULTURE. It's no coincidence that the feel of our club hasn't changed for half a dozen seasons now. It has reeked of mediocrity. Several managers and countless players hasn't changed that. To those defending JT. No, the CEO doesn't choose tactics or mark players at corners, he is more important than that, he sets the tone and feel of the entire organisation. He sets the culture. Culture is the reason that players can go to one club and look a world-beater, or another and look terrible (Redmayne, Janjetovic, Buomjohann) or a manager can

  14. I always felt the same about Dino Kresinger. Always put in, yet just didn't have the goal scoring stats. However, he worked extraordinarily hard and opened up opportunities for players like Bridge and Hersi to score instead. Both Cox and Dino will always be Wanderers legends, and I feel privilidged that they showed so much passion for our club. Unlike some others that I will refrain from mentioning but we all know who they were. Simon Cox - you were, and always will be, a Wanderer. The sacrifice you made for our club on behest of your family will never be forgotten.

  15. Goodbye Coxy, your commitment and work ethic for this club is at times unmatched, making the extremely hard decision to stay with us and miss the birth of your first child. You gave everything for us on the pitch, tried everything you could, ran your heart out, scored a few important goals, assisted some important goals, you will be missed. Would be a fairy tale ending if he gets to go back to Southend United and take them back up into League 2. I really hope he does well wherever he ends up, ill be looking to see how he gets on.

Police cop and deal with much worst on a daily basis, if one officer cant handle being a called a swear word after an individual was willingly providing said officer with ID. Then that officer needs further training or change profession. All this before kick off even occurred Starting to get over it all

    We played well tonight but to be honest, and I don't want to put a downer on our performance, I really couldn't believe how poor WU were. Tired minds and legs perhaps, but they were dreadful and rarely threatened. I'm glad that for once we put a team like that away. Really disappointing to hear about the capo ban for swearing. If he was banned for that, so should have 15000 other people for joining in with the same chant.

  19. To give some credit where it's due, CR and the staff got it right and players did their bit very well. SFC are a solid, stable team who have developed combinations and understanding over several seasons. We're not on the same page as them yet - still a very new team struggling to work out how to play together. They have some very good players - especially Nincovic. We had a plan and played to it. CR was seen pushing Ziggy up the field just before hisctun to cut back for first goal. We kept Inc relatively quiet for much of the game but his quality is always going to come through in importa

    Two weeks is a long time in football. It appears the debacle against Vic was quite an educational experience for CR. He has given up on the idea of possession based football, is using a more counter attacking approach instead, ditched the back three, and replaced McGowan with Ziegler. Dropping the man he gave the arm band would have been a difficult decision for him, but he got there, eventually. Hopefully not too late. The addition of Scotty MC and Ugarkovic has been important. Mutch is quality and is fit enough to play 60 minutes. And Ziegler finally reconnected with the player who

  23. I don't think J O'D had a good run with us since his ACL. He is a good young player and unfortunately was seen as behind Baccus Jr and very similar. He never quite got a go but gave his best. He will be a good pick up for any team and hopefully will get a chance of more game time. I wish him all the best.

Game had everything except a red, real derby match, Bumjohan was on a personal mission, you could see he needed to get a monkey off his back, did he? did he **** whinging t*** No Mcgowan ! it helped, first half defending was rock, a bit more sketchy and desperate in the second but they needed goals. turning point? thought it was Bobo's penalty miss if that went in ............ would have been tougher, i don't think i can nominate a MOM

  27. Spot on Mack. This club needs to make a decision whether it wants to produce youth players or win trophies because it is almost impossible to do both. I don't mean to sound like Alan Hansen but the history of this competition shows that. The youth players coming through the system are good youth players but none are at the standard where they are near the best in the competition for their position or of the quality that is required to win you a title. Younger players lack experience and with that comes a lack of consistency required. Title winning players perform week in, week out.

  28. My view is that the importance of having the academy is vastly over-rated by Lederer and some fans. The club will be lucky to introduce a single youth player into the first team per season, who will play at an acceptable enough level to remain with the club beyond just their early 20's. And not all of them will be first team level quality. If you want to be Bilbao, then say so. But Lederer has said we are a team who win trophies. An academy is a useful tool for the club but it's not the solution to winning trophies again. Relying on academy players in their teens & early 20's is a fas

  29. I think that sort of the point of the JT out clan - you have chosen the wrong guy every time since popa left - yes it’s hard to get it right but when you’re at the top of the tree your expected to know what your doing. If lederer had a handshake 🤝 agreement with Popa he could **** off whenever he wanted there should have been a long term plan to do something similar to what esfc did and that’s build up the next coach. JT and Lederer can be displeased by CR’s lack of success but it continues to a 5 years strategy of making decisions today for tomorrow instead of sitting down and

  30. There is a very easy solution to the Police problem. Only allow normal cops in the ground, the ones wearing two blues. Between them and stadium security they can resolve 99% of all issues. I’ve never had an issue with the normal cops. The raptor jumpsuit wearing squad can sit outside in their Landcruiser and only get in if we get attacked by a bikie gang, or whatever it is they are training for. And the raptor guy with a black beard and a massive short man syndrome needs many many years of counselling and some type of training to increase his IQ. It’s worrying that someone like hi

  33. In my opinion, last season has an * next to it. The whole finals series had to be played at Bankwest, so all of those out of Sydney teams were impacted mentally by not being able to host a finals game and not have any of their fans due to travel not being allowed, heavily falling in sfcs favour. The 'Grand' final was useless, played in front of 75% empty seats with little to no away fans due to melbournians being locked out, again, heavily falling into sfcs favour. That's definitely not the way I would want my team to win a grand final. If I was going to brag about winning a comp a

Threw everything at the ball, created heaps of chances (of quality as well) with only about 25% of the ball for the whole match. The way the Cove went silent after the 2nd goal was hilarious. Mutch needs to start every game for the rest of the season, he is class. Ziggy Gordon, what a man. Please give Kamau a contract extension now. For me, Troisi was clearly a victim

  36. What a shift from all players! Just what was needed. A fantastic demonstration of how to hit on the break. I thought ESFC for all their possession huffed and puffed but in the main had no cutting edge, but I thought our defence stood up also. Bit dodgy towards the end but ok. I can see why they need Le Fondre back. A special mention for Ziggy who I thought ran himself into the ground. And Kamau of course. Great finish from McDonald, right place right time. We need to take this high forward now and ensure it isn’t a one off, build some momentum. We will need that and other results to

  37. While the owners have supported Robbo and made the signings he wanted, they're in this position because they burned through patience and goodwill with the garbage served up over recent seasons. If the club had been well run for the last few years then people can accept when the owners do the right thing but for whatever reason it doesn't work out for a season. You fix the issue and move on, like the smurfs seem to be able to do when they have a bad year. They immediately correct the problems and are back in the finals the next season. Victory used to be like that and now that it looks like the

  39. The club haven’t really put a foot wrong during this Robinson era. He appeared to be one of the hottest managerial prospects available so the club proactively (and aggressively) pursued him. They’ve been forthcoming with money and resources to give him every chance of succeeding. He’s pretty much gotten everything he has requested. Then it’s gradually exposed that he’s a a phoney who is all smoke and mirrors. Unless Lederer had a crystal ball then I don’t think anyone could’ve predicted this. I feel sorry for the club cause they been sold a dream and delivered a lie.

    It's an interesting question. Looking at the stats for Aquilina, Wilmering and Russell you can pick out certain information about how they've played. The minutes played is relatively similar although Wilmering is about 4 games shy of the other two in that. Another piece of information that isn't a stat is that Aquilina is a right-footer despite playing at left back in our current setup, his role is a lot like when Georgievski was playing at left fullback, cutting inside onto his right foot in an already congested penalty area. Wilmering & Russell are more attacking. They have a lot

  46. True My counter point would be that in their respective companies, the members of the WSW board would hire personal assistants and managers to look after certain parts of their business. E.g. Lederer doesn't inspect all pieces of salami prepared in the Primo factories, there would be supervisors Having a football director doesn't mean that board members can't give their opinions on who to sign Let's say we had a football director and Lederer tells him he wants to sign Jamie Maclaren (yes, i know it's a fantasy but go with me here), the football director would have to explai

  47. well who would of predicted that we would of would be down 5-1 to Melbourne Victory in the 2nd half, the team sitting last on the ladder who came off a 7-0 whopping the match before? It was not only embarassing to watch our calamity from the set pieces but also sad to see what was once such a top performing club just give up goals so easy. Pace along the backline was a problem Kruse was running a muck, and simple school boy errors like picking up a man at a set piece/corner were happening. Id rather stick 2 men on the each goal post if they cant man mark. At the begining of the seas

At 5.30 I got told that there were drinks and I got invited as a guest of the Melbourne office, so I thought I’d make an appearance. Lost track of time, had about 10 drinks, ended up at a dumpling restaurant, taxi ride back to hotel around midnight...

On the other hand, 5-1 down is embarrassing and if I had been in the stadium, I would hav
