    I always like the long drive up from Canberra to watch the Wanderers play, especially when a large part of the action is settled off the field on a tiny screen. At least I caught up with a few friends earlier in the day - that was good.

    Firstky, Kudos to the RBB. I was in active and it was amazing. We were **** until the VAR non goal for us.......seemed to spark us into a bit of action. I will never go to an away derby again. If the FFA and ESFC think that after watching that game I am going to line their pockets any more they can get ****ed. I wished Babbel had just walked on to the field and decked Beath...what a sham.

    Probably your best post ever!  :D

    Ngawwww thanks Wendy - although I'd argue the "Hey guys I have a girlfriend now" does more for the meta-storyline of the WSF forum :cheeky:

    But if the VAR gets scrapped... :ninja:

     

    On a side note, after it happened and it simmered in my mind for a couple of minutes, I honestly thought, "This must be what it's like watching those rigged football games in Italy"

    Not even kidding. It was so farcical that the only explanation I could come up with in my head was either utter stupidity or match fixing.

    Sat in the concourse near the RBB for part of the first half. View was the worst I have experienced in my 40 years of going to matches.  

    Result of course was disappointing (if not unexpected). 

    VAR was simply inexplicable. Still can’t believe that decision!

    there was a silver lining though. We used our 5 concourse tickets to somehow get 18 people into a empty corporate box for the second half 

    and the black strip looks smick

    That's not an unreasonable observation...so disgracefully bad were some of the decisions tonight.

    I cant remember you so steamed up.

    But you know what?

    If this is a turning point...and it SHOULD be...it will have been worth it.

    Enough is well and truly enough.

    The view from the upper Churchill not as bad as I was expecting, not so far from the corner flag and so didn't feel all that different, not great but not as bad as I as expecting.

    I think the VAR has overshadowed a few first half issues, rightly so probably. But we were caught napping in the opening 5 or 10 mins and didn't really get in to the game until around 25 mins in,, we could have been a couple of goals down after 20..Thenbiscuit missed a harder chance than last week, but still a half chance..ball a bit behind him...then Roly missed an open goal....not his night for sure lol

    Yeah...and then things got shite....

    Home from game and gutted for the lads to go down in such a fashion. The game was a farce, we just didnt realise we were the joke. First the disallowed goal, then the not given penalty. Unbelievable. I doht know what to say. Im feel pretty sad about the league right now. 

    Esfc can gloat all they like. And they will.  They are the most obnoxious, precious team in the aleague. They would be nothing without the pathetic pandering. If this feels like a victory to them, have at it you bunch of entitled tw@ts

    All of that fetid drama aside, Babbel needs to do better than this

    As rancid and borderline corrupt as the officiating, can’t avoid the fact that we are a really poor team. Mahazi and Baccus are last 5 min bench warmers at any other club, and Sotirio is not even NPL. Then there were our incredible efforts at playing out from the back. Reached my limit tonight.

    • I tend to agree that the issue is incompetence on behalf of the officials rather than conscious bias (although on KGJ I’m not so sure...). However, the only thing that really gets me into conspiracy mode is the famous derby victory in which we stopped the Smurfs from going undefeated. Am I going senile, or was there an apology to Sydney FC to the effect of “the officials missed a penalty call and we’re terribly sorry you were defeated” or some such drivel ? Didn’t Annie then feel entirely justified in continuing to claim that they really were still undefeated? 
    • Touching on the youth players, how good is it to see these guys not just get a run but play well. Tate had probably his worst game last night but has been a breathe of fresh air, been absolutely outstanding. No way he shouldnt get in the team ahead of Lorente, Elrich & Risdon; Cordier, I can see why he hasn’t got a run before this game, great talent not quite ready yet; Tass has been outstanding, he should be starting over Hamil & Elrich once Ziegler returns. Also, steps into midfield & plays like a boss  ; Majok, exciting talent. I know people want to give him a chance to grow into the role but that first touch really annoys me. Especially at this level  ; Suman, he isn’t quite ready yet but head & shoulders above Nizic plus there is something up with Vedran, give him some time out of the spotlight & give this young kid s go.
    • My favorites are: (1) Shout at the player to shoot from a long distance with a low percentage reward & then get angry when they miss. Or get angry that they should have taken the unlikely low percentage shot (2) Similar to the Elrich pass situation: Player has the ball but few options ahead of them (1) Get angry at players for making the pass, passing backwards or sidewards to retain possession (2) Player makes a low percentage pass or worse the miracle ball which ends up in the oppositions possesion & still get angry even though you were shouting at them to make the pass  There are actually legitimate times to get annoyed like: silly fouls where a player is going no where & they commit a really stupid careless soft foul that allows the opposition to relieve pressure; players lack of ability to control the ball with a first touch not just once but multiple occasions, at this level   I quite enjoyed it last night when Cordier didn’t run with the ball into space, crowd got annoyed but the next time it happened, he got a push of encouragement, ran into space & took on the defense.
