    Very difficult start.

    The really disappointing thing about the Cup Semi was we didn't even look like a team.

    It was as if the half time instruction, was 'lads take it easy it's only a trial game'.

    With everyone trying to get a place in the squad.

    There's an apparent lack of unity. No team-ness. No little groups or links.

    We desperantly need some links - Poljak-LaRocca, Polenz-Hersi. And Ono-Mooy seem like years ago.

    It's the little groups that knit together to form the fine-embroidery of a good team.

    We just don't seem to have it.

    With others, [Mariners/Jets] getting better around us, I fear for the season.

    But at least it's the last one, parking at Lidcombe.

    Popa never got us off to a winning start in all the seasons he was in charge, so Perth are specials :(

    And the 1 season he did (13/14 we were 1st after Round 6) we very rapidly fell back as far as 3rd, then kept dropping points while Brisbane extended their lead.

    Would take a draw if given now.

    Fear another hammering. ******* Popa never won his first games of season with us but you watch him turn that around..

    Nailed on Santa goal also.

    Nearly half the league was our Arnie last year. I don't think we won a game against Newcastle, Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory or Adelaide and we didn't sweep anyone 3-0 either. We got close with the Mariners & Wellington where our record against them both was 2 wins and 1 draw.

    Last year was absolutely dire. The playing style, SOP, no purpose, little commitment, Riot Squad travails, SOP, losing in just about every game to the teams above us, SOP, running out of steam every game after 60 mins. Oh and did I mention Sydney Bleedin' Olympic Park.

    Has to be better, has to.

    If they are out I wonder how many rounds before they're PopaFit TM and back in the squad.

    Since when has Popa publicly announced his squad days before a match? We'll be lucky to know his Starting XI by 6:45pm Sunday

    Whilst Popa has a great squad on paper, some of them are not coming off strong seasons. Spira hasn't been performing at his best (not even A League best) for a couple of years.  I wonder how far he is from being the Spira we remember?  Likewise a few others? - Franjic has generally turned up only to score a worldy against us; Ferriera has never grabbed me - solid but not a name I'd look at.  Not sure about the rest of his pick ups but assume that they are coming to Perth, they need to get things back on the road of their careers.  Perth is not the centre of the footballing universe and they are under the salary cap, so???

    Ikon should be up for it as he had a good run last season.  If they get it together, they will be very tough this season but I am hoping that getting them early will give us the best opportunity (despite we are very much underdone as well).  We shall see.  As someone else said probably 1-0 win or 0-4 loss.

    • I hear ya. Pumping up the squad with HAL grade players is not the answer. Popa is able to squeeze the last drop of performance out of mediocre players with a focus on training intensity, fitness, and discipline. But S5 everyone (including the man himself) realized that this approach only gets you this far with players like Borda, Bruno, Melling, Dimas, Jumpei, Lustica, Bulut, Clisby. Short term: increase the number of imports. The "good" Aussies that are hanging around in the HAL are seen as quality players and are paid reasonably well because of that, and because there's only few of them. But Brilliante, O'Neill, Davidson etc - they aren't THAT good. You can get a better football import professional for the same money. It would improve the quality of the squad immediately, and local players would have to work harder to make the match day squad. Mid to long term: increase the squad size with more competent youth players, and that means a focus on youth development. MB and his coaching group lifted the capabilities of our youth players significantly as the season progressed, and we are going to see more of that. If one young wanderer per season makes the jump to Europe, it will be motivation for the other ambitious youngsters.    
    • The clubs want more of the broadcast deal which is the only way to get better quality players and/or increase squad size. The best way to do get better quality visa players is remove some of the restrictions imposed by the FFA like having rent paid or a specific allowance for it outside the cap. Also, take the car allowance outside the cap. The FFA insists these are part of the cap. I think that the visa players should have a restriction in terms of position for each team:  1 defender, 1 midfielder,  1 forward with the other 2 not All being the same type of position e.g. cannot have 1 defender,  1 midfielder,  3 forwards. So 2 defenders max, 2 midfielders max or 2 forwards max. To increase squad size, obviously the cap total per club has to increase with less money for Gallop. there could be 2 NPL rookies allowed per season both outside the cap. 
    • How do we pay for the increased squad sizes with clubs losing money hand over fist? How do we afford better quality players to raise the standard?
