  1. Firstly, there is no way we let JP go unless we knew CR was coming on board, so the club didn't do that. They lined up CR first, and then told JP he was excess to requirements. Give the club some credit. Despite what many might believe, they are NOT complete amateur's. 2ndly, CR came on board and then had what, 4 - 6 weeks to strengthen our squad? The fact he was able to bring in Dorrens, Ibini, Troisi, Margush and Ziggy in such a short time speaks volumes about his commitment and influence. He's not mucking around. He has already turfed some of the youth that he saw had no future with th

  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. 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!! ❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤

  8. This is my take, I'm going to waffle for one or two sentences and that is for a reason. Ok I live in Adelaide and my son Jordan O'Doherty used to play for Adelaide United but now plays for WSW and I am a Millwall fan. About 6/7 years he played in the NPL final against SFC at bluetongue WSW v CCM was the game afterwards. Towards the end of the NPL final we saw the WSW march coming down the hill. We got speaking to a couple of WSW oldies who were already in the lower level seats and they said this happens every game. The RBB got inside the stadium an hour before kick off and

  9. The owners consider the youth factory the crown jewel of the club. They poured roughly 20 million dollars of their own money into the facilities at Blacktown. That’s the investment they’ve made into the future of the club. Cheapskates? Lederer out? The vision is having Westies play for the West at HAL level. A manager who ignores that vision will pay the price. Gombau did, and so has JP. Both showed no interest in youth development, did not go to youth games, did not nurture young talent. Both time the club was quick to react. JT has history with the Jets, he had his finger on the pu

  11. 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

  16. Sport is inherently political. Questions of identity, race, class and gender affect every element of sport. Sports people have the right to express political views and fans have a right to criticise those views. The common refrain of 'let's keep politics out of sport' is a cudgel to prevent people expressing views that those people disagree with. See Goodes, Kaepernick, Serena Williams. Those same people stand for the national anthem and applaud the troops when they are trotted out at sporting events. Where are the cries of 'keep politics out of sport' then? The ongoing occupation o

    In previous seasons, there were always excuses a coach at WSW could fall back on such as a substandard recruitment budget by the club, inadequate training facilities, not playing at a proper football ground (SOP). When it comes to CR, no other coach in our short history has been given more tools and and had more favourable circumstances for a successful season. He got the players he asked for and still getting them up until recently (Ugarkovic), has superior training facilities and stadium not to mention the fact that circumstances caused by Covid meant that WSW has had a relatively less disru

  22. 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.

    So can someone actually answer why Lachlan Rose is so hyped? Pretty sure he had no successful dribbles and Ziggy didn’t break a sweat keeping him contained, yet fox sports and especially Speed acts like he’s the Australian Messi. God help us if he ever scores. Pretty sure the entire fox sports commentary team will spontaneously combust.

  25. I was thinking back to S1 where had that kind of luck. Eight years on we seem to have all forgotten just how lucky were were at times. The first 10 rounds were hit and miss, lots of effort and hard work, but no convincing performances. We could easily have lost all four games against the Roar, but won them all. The 2-1 against the VIC on NYD when Finkler did his knee in early in the game, that win set the tone for 2013. Rd18 against Heart when Polenz was red carded, Ante saved the penalty, and Dino milked a penalty late in the game. We should never have won that that game. We should never

  26. a couple of thoughts on what we saw (disclaimer: i missed parts of second half due to australia's rubbish internet) ...... if we are going to play this 352 that it looks like we are set on, we have some players mismatched to the system i think...... - cox is not a hold up the ball type guy. I saw a bit of him in the english lower leagues and he is a guy who likes to come deep to get the ball and operate between the lines - can't do that in this set up because troisi is in the way. so he ends up being the first pass out of defence instead and then trying to hold the ball up against bi

  27. Not going to read this report...too negative, I suspect, from the comments during the game. Congrats to the Bulls _ they looked impressive, with a phenomenal keeper in Federici! And for our team... didn't think we were too bad, but certainly there's room for improvement. It's the first game of the season. Too early to write us off yet!

  29. Well well. The "true reality" you are referring to sounds more like an opinion piece to me. Here is alternate reality for you: 1) WSW played by the FFA salary cap rules, others didn't. It all flows from there, that's why the quality Aussies ended up elsewhere. 2) We didn't dump all the good S4 players. Bridgey, NTS and Jamo were all poached at the same time. There was nothing the club could do about it, and there was no one available to adequately replace them. Andreu asked for marquee money, Alberto for too much money. Jumpei for Castelen is on Popa. 3) End then there are the p

  30. Hmmmmmm. It really is hard to see where the club goes from here. Starting to think we are destined to be also-rans forever with the first few years of our existence and success an aberration. Effectively we have been mediocre under-achievers ever since the current owners got their sweet deal from FFA. They seem to be content with insipid, inconsistent performances from the team and a merry-go-round of ineffective foreign coaches and staff. They also seem to believe that we members will simply hand over our cash each year and endure the tepid, passion-less (with the odd exception) games d

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

  33. 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.

  35. 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

  37. The issues at this club run deep, very deep. It much more than players missing open goals or incompetent managers. The whole ethos regarding what WSW was meant to be has been lost, and cannot be remanurfactured copied or replicated, you can't fix it by throwing $$$$$ at it. We were all about the community 'uniting as one under one badge'. You had players at the back end of their career busting a gut and running through walls for us and I guess to prove a point to themselves and others. We were the battling passionate Westies and it filled a gaping void in my life. And then the

    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

I'm happy with this result and I hope it'll be another season where the lads either draw or win against the Smurfs all season and keep the streak alive. You can see the whole squad is improving every game and I don't think anyone had a horrible game (except for Muller's blunder which I'll mention below) Troisi's penalty will be the most controversial penalty so far this season. I thought nothing would beat the blander they had last week with Rufer but it seems the A-League o
