  2. Que? We’re only a third through the season and we’re 5 behind the leaders with a game in hand. Plenty of points to be won and dropped by all teams between now and the end of the season. And for a team that has a new coach and a whole bunch of new players, we are in a great position to launch a title challenge.

  3. First home win and clean sheet of the season! 1st wasn't bad, 2nd half very positive, id say we got a 60-70 minute performance tonight. Natta my MOM, he made a fair few last ditch tackles and was quality the whole night, this kid is special. Should've gotten on the score sheet. Unfortunate that Dorrans will miss the next game, however his quality and effort tonight was outstanding, he is now showing how quality he is. That goal for Yeboah will hopefully give him so much confidence. We always talk about "What if Bulut wasn't offside, the confidence it would've given him". No

  5. Mutch is quality, throw in Dorrans who for me is the 1st name on the teamsheet, plenty of depth and quality up front. CR should know his best 11 soon. We are not near halfway of season done, once this team clicks I think we are the best team in the comp. Excited for the run in

  6. Great little away trip. How the FFA didn’t give a spot to Wollongong is beyond me. Plenty of locals in the stands and a fantastic boutique stadium in a great location. Had that been non-COVID times and an actual Wollongong team, that place would have been packed out. Parking was easy and close, good food and entertainment choices nearby and a beautiful view that maybe tops the Sauce Bottles in Gosford. Just imagine Wollongong and Canberra in the league and the support that they would have received in their communities and from travelling fans. Both very appealing away trips f

  7. 24 HAL game against VIC. Two wins in S1, one in S2, one in S4, two in S8. Four home game victories against them in eight seasons. That’s it! And now this one. Considering the stats and how inexperienced/young the team was tonight, no complaints from me. We actually look like a solid, decent football team, the depth of the squad is impressive. A few weeks ago no one knew who Natta was. Now I don’t blink an eye when he is in the starting line up. Very happy for Ziegler, solid game. With Tass and Dylan Mc out his performances will be crucial in the next weeks. Very happy for Kwame

  10. Just returned from the game. Great fun despite the result. I think some are being a bit harsh on Natta. Sure, he was targeted today but on the most part, he did his job. He covered most of what was thrown at him and almost always forced the ball back inside rather than let his opponent get away from him. Some people forget he is only 18 and has played only 4 A-League games. He has been rock solid in every game. He is cool on the ball whenever he has it at his feet, and is either quick to feed it off to his DM's or spread it wide to his winger, or if he is further forward, to the AM. His b

  12. There needs to be a minimum number of cameras or something for VAR. In any other league they would have reviewed the handball call with a reverse angle camera shot from the eastern stand. Instead we have Fox using two iPhones in the main stand to film the whole game so the only shot the refs had the players body was blocking the view. Not sure how that garbage was conclusive proof of a clear and obvious error but A-League refs etc... Didn’t matter anyway. From the moment they scored in the 5th minute there was no way we were scoring twice, even if we played them twice. We chop and change

    Oh my god some of the nonsense on here. I get it, people are frustrated we lost. But this stuff about this being a terrible game, we looked like strangers, we look like last year, they were more than one goal better than us, is all pure rubbish. Possession 56% to 44% Shots 26 to 14 Crosses 43 to 7 Corners 19 to 0. We failed to take our chances, and we made some bad mistakes on defence, but if getting twice as many shots off and totally dominating crosses and corners is a terrible performance, well give me that any day. I swear some people think these guys are pla

  14. It feels like in the final third we have a whole bunch of super subs. Everyone looks great coming off the bench against tired legs but when they earn a start they’re ordinary. Cox and Kamau were great off the bench and Ibini has been a good impact player. Never as good starting. Plenty of opportunities for players to step up and claim the starting spots. Been good to see Yeboah improving. Against Macarthur I thought he was going to hurt himself every time he got the ball but two goals in two games is hard to argue with. If he can get his decision making sorted (e.g. the Tate through ball

  18. I take my hat off to Coxy. It must be very emotional for him at the moment, having decided to pursue his career in a distant country and not being there to be part of the experience being with his first newborn, and just being able to hold that baby. I'm not sure I could have done it. An amazing sacrifice, just to play for our club. Kudos.

  20. Back at accommodation... How great was Wilmering's dink pass for the goal, great stuff. That other goal was worked straight off the training pitch, always looks amazing when they work in a game. Shyte defending for their second, need to do better. Ibini looked a lost soul, didnt look happy with the world. Disappointing not to take the full 3, but had a great weekend.

  21. Tonight said more about Victory than us. They were awful and with CCM learning how to play football in the offseason I cannot see where they will get a win from. Having said that they are the shitty games you have to win and we did it without being super impressive. Bacchus, Gordon, Zielgler, Russell, Natta all went well as were the subs, Ibini still not convinced. Yeboah well that goal might give him something to go on with. Still think if we bring Duke into that side he scores a hattrick. Geez its nice to finally have some depth in the squad, don't forget that is without Tass, Mueller

    Thriller In Leumeah

    There is no better representation of where Yeboah is at in his career than that moment at the end of the game where he was fed through on goal. The last thing on his mind was to curl it far post first time like any reasonable attacking player - instead he ran it straight at the keeper and rolled his ankle cause he lost control of the ball. To cap it all off, he couldn’t even time his run well enough to stay onside in the first place. I actually felt sad for him watching that tbh. He is a shell of his former self.

  23. Great game RBB was rocking 2nd half, drowned out the cow bells and think we really helped the team in the last half hour. First half we were average. Got into decent areas but we were crossing to players who were getting towered over by 6 foot 5 giants. Im certain that Oar or whoever it was was offside in the buildup that lead to the corner for their first goal. Don’t think they were particularly good, think we made them look good cause we were crap. 2nd half was really good, we were absolutely all over them. 2 fantastic goals, unlucky not to score 2-3 more and could’ve had 1

  25. Let me preface this by saying I've not really got a football brain, but surely we need to stop rotating players week in week out trying to find a magic "formula" and just run with something till we've bedded down some kind of flow and intuition between players. The focus is too heavy on individual performance and not toward cohesiveness. I've noticed there's a lot of miscommunication and no one seems to know "who's on first, what's on second" on many occasions (which makes the opposition look like Barca), and I wonder if that's because week in week out there's a different front third or

    I hate breaking games down to the cliched “passion and desire” thing but it looked like Adelaide got stuck in more. Every chance we had they scrambled to stop it. Their first goal was partly because Yeboah didn’t shut down the shot with any conviction. The second was after we let Halloran walk through the box then Mauk take a touch without McGowan closing him down. For the third Baccus should have brought the player down and taken the yellow. Referee completely lost control of the Adelaide time wasting. I’ve never seen a keeper make the referee blow the whistle of four separate occas

    The Middlesbrough FC manager Neil Warnock flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi boy play soccer. He is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over and sign for Middlesbrough . Two weeks later they are 3-0 down with only 20 minutes left, the young Iraqi gets the nod and on he goes. The lad is a sensation, scores 2 goals, sets up another 2 in 20 minutes and wins the game for Boro. The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media love the new star. When the lad comes off the pitch he phones his mum to tell her about his first day in the Championship

Robbie was not making excuses with players still coming up to speed statements he was asked a question and he answered it. he also did not blame the penalty for the loss again he was asked a question and his answer was what he believed. Robbo made no excuses for the last 2 games , he identified our problems without throwing the team under the bus and only Mentioned Baccus in passing. time will tell if Robbie and Miller are the answer to our coaching woes and if we don’t make the six he should still be allowed to then make his full selection of players for the following seas

    There are people on here saying we're worse than last year. And you said that Adelaide were more than a goal better than us. Both of those things are blatantly not true. Who's burying their heads in the sand? There are plenty of reasonable comments on here about why things aren't working, but not too much discussion about them. People are too busy saying the players don't care. We dominated possession, crosses, corners, balls into the box, and shots on goal. Man when they start trying the other team won't ever be able to get the ball! You're complaining about the club's cut

    Too many people saying things like "it'll get fixed" We're a third of the way into the season. How long do we give the team to fix it? We've been in nsw for the past 2 months. Struggled to win points we should have. How are they going to go once we have to travel again? We had 5 starters on the bench. This is arguably the best depth we or the league has atm. #noexcuses

We have no penetration up the middle what so ever. Gee I wonder how you defend that? And to make matters worse we can't get on the end of a cross (god forbid one of our 7 wingers moonlighting as strikers makes a back post run) If only there were some sort of formation where we could use our natural wingers as wingers. And our strikers as actual strikers... Fu/ck me, this ones got me stumped I'll

    The last two games combined we had 46 shots, 31 corners, 25 crosses and managed to get the ball into the area from all of that 94 times. AU & WP had 29 shots, 33 balls into the area, and only 3 corners and 2 crosses combined. And we lost 5-4 on 'aggregate'. To the team that is last, and the team that was in 9th before tonight. The better teams aren't going to let us rack up such gigantic numbers and our atrocious set piece defending makes it practically certain all you need is a handful of free kicks or corners and you'll score from one.

We got work that Shaun had told security to leave us alone, so we continued standing. At half time the cops stood at the front of the bay trying to think up what to say until about the 66th minute when they t

Ziegler’s distribution from the back is pretty impressive I think he probably has the best distribution skills out of the our centre halves His defence is picking up and hopefully will improve as time goes on. to think we still have duke Muller and Mitch to add in to this team we have a squad that can win that dreaded toilet seat.
