    Wanderers Obliterated By Sydney FC


    mack

    Sydney FC demolished the Western Sydney Wanderers tonight in Homebush, putting an end to the Wanderers season before Christmas with a 5-0 thumping.

    Andrew Mierzejewski began the destruction with his piledriving finishing in the 14th minute. David Carney beat Roly Bonevacia to a cutback, made his way to the byline & crossed into the middle. Vedran Janjetovic palmed the cross away, none of the Wanderers reacted while Mierzejewski fired a laserlike finish without taking a touch. Alvaro Cejudo had the chance to hit back in the 28th minute, the Spanish winger firing from outside the area, Andrew Redmayne the Sydney FC goalkeeper touched the ball onto the bar & out for a corner.

    Alex Brosque fired a warning shot at the home side in the 35th minute, as he combined with Luke Wilkshire before firing wide. Brosque made no mistake 5 minutes later, Bobo pierced the Wanderers defensive line with a through ball, Brosque needed one touch to get round the hopelessly out of position Janjetovic to roll the ball home. 

    When Jack Clisby chipped down Mierzejewski on the edge of the box before half-time there would have been few people not expecting the free kick to find the back of the net. Mierzejewski stepped up with his left foot, curled the ball over the wall, leaving Janjetovic grasping and unable to turn the ball away.

    The night went from bad to worse when striker Lachlan Scott found the back of the net at the wrong end. Sydney FC played a short corner, Mierzejewski popped up again to fire in a cross that Scott jumped in an attempt to clear, only to glance off the top of his head & find the far corner. Had Scott left the ball alone it was highly likely that Carney would have been pinged for offside, but alas it was 4-0.

    It would have been 5 goals but for the VAR over-turning a goal earlier in the game for a handball but nonetheless the 5th eventually came in the 75th minute, Brandon O'Neil given the freedom of the Wanderers penalty area he curled his shot past Janjetovic. Sydney FC looked dangerous whenever they got hold of the ball in the Wanderers half, while the likes of Cejudo, Scott (when down the right end), and substitutes Jumpei & Santalab looked toothless.
     
    It was a truly pathetic, gutless, inept, abysmal "performance". The players on the pitch don't deserve to wear the Red & Black as it stands, the club should strip them of that right, force them to wear the white kit of surrender until they turn in an effort worthy of the players who came before them. Whatever Gombau is doing isn't working, he needs to go back to the drawing board & figure out a way to put any kind of defensive mettle back in his squad. With the January transfer window coming up it might be time to let the likes of Jumpei, Clisby, Hamill, Melling & Cejudo they can find a new club and start playing the youth team. If we're going to get smashed we might as well give our promising youth talent a chance to shine.

    Western Sydney face the rising Central Coast Mariners in Gosford next Saturday night.

    I’ve gone through 3 Grand Final losses and they don’t come close to the shame and disappointment I feel right now. That was pathetic. For me this is my lowest point in supporting this (once) great club.

    I’ll also add this: I have been in the RBB since WSW started though I’ve never considered it to be more important than the club. Tonight though, the RBB was all the club had because it certainly didn’t have anything on the pitch. Anyway, I’ll be back next week to do it all again. I don’t ask for much and couldn’t care less if we lost every game, I just want a bit of effort from the team.

    Aspro and Cornthwaite are too slow! They kept on getting beaten and make one too many schoolboy errors tonight. 

    Cornthwaite does not deserve to start next week.. 

    It's already round 10 and we have only scored 9 goals so far this season. 

     

    Not good enough.

    I think I went to the wrong stadium. Was that Mrs Browns Boys I was watching. Because it was a joke, right.

    Can someone try and explain Gombaus team selection and some of his positional choices.

    The worst thing is watching Janjetovic give the ball to Cornthwaite laying out from the back. Do you notice all the time how Cornthwaite seems to get pressed and hassled, and then ends up hitting it long or even losing it. Not helped by the fact that some of Janjetovic's passing is not the best.

    So amateur.

    ...and the coach says

    "For me, the players are trying to do what the coach is asking them to do. I assume all the responsibility of this big loss," he said. "I want to said my apologies to the fans who come to support the team. For me, the team I am coaching, things are improving."

    really?

    I would not be upset if we lose 8 nil if the team gave a 100%, but when most of them didn't even give 20% its frustrating. 

    I understand people saying fans should support in good and bad times etc and that's ok with an amateur club, but this is a not. Players get paid well, if they want to run this as a business, than heads need to roll this is just unacceptable

    If you mean playing him in midfield, that was where he played before the last year or so when Popa converted him to a fullback.

    If you mean in general as in picking him.. better than Melling.

    the main issue i had here, is i should have been depressed, i should have been angry and i should have been devastated as **** but i just didnt feel anything really, i am actually happy we lost so badly because a 1-0 loss wouldnt get the team the same kick up the arse as what we got there, the harder the pegging the more you dont want to repeat your mistakes

     

    it feels like everyone is feeling similar about the derby to me, worse derby atmosphere yet, extremely low crowd considering, virtually no build up though i am sure sydney fc fans feel different but it really does feel like a lot of passion is missing from the derby now

    even think about the derbies of the past and how much passion was happening on the field, abbas having a hissy fit, a couple of big injuries ect and i dont want injuries but it felt like another match, our players didnt seem to want to fight for it or even realise it was a derby, dire all round but the fact that it was such a bad loss hopefully means all our players/coaching staff ect are getting a massive kick they wont soon forget, i dont actually mean anything violent though but yea

    If I was gunner miss a Derby well this was the one. For all the club posturing about how big we are and our future there's nothing like being humbled by FC. The next two losses in Gosford and Newcastle won't look so bad neither will our playing Victory into form as we fight it out with them and The Nix for the wooden spoon.

    Was the lineup tonight due to Gombau making a stand against some of the players causing trouble in the dressing room/not wanting to play for him? It just absolutely terrible and set us up for disaster. The only logical explanation I can think of for such a hiding is a player rebellion. None of them looked like they gave a s*** at full time besides Santa who was in tears, bless him. The squad genuinely look like they don't care anymore & as a result of that I'm no longer paying for a membership to support that until everyone that doesn't want to play for the shirt and coach f***s off.

    If that's the revenge for ruining their perfect season then whatever. Onwards to the next round, as long as Riera is back we'll be OK.

    The lineup and the starting positions laid out how we were to perform tonight. To disrespect the the fans this way, to me, is unforgivable. To start our "babies" in one of our biggest games of the season was totally unconscionable. There must be more happenings behind the scene that we don't  know but why use this game to show who's boss.

    Wasn’t aware but he looked out of depth most of the game 

     on the first goaL remember looking at the screen seeing baby baccus look at Adrian and just not shut him down his night went worse from there 

    just watched armies presser 

    lord love him trolling us calling redmayne the best keeper in the league

    Greetings once again to the Popa out brigade. Well, how much fun was that? Enjoying yourself?

    It's mid season, and we are in pre season. And by the time we are ready to perform the season will be over. 

    We'll know soon enough if players are injured or on the outer. I am expecting quite a shake up in January - and a few more defeats before the re-enforcements are coming. 

    Nice of Gombau to take responsibility. "We are going to win", he said - and starts three younsters and only two imports against a full strength Smurf side. Delusional. They had chances to put 10 past as.

    ALL the players that played tonight were signed by Popovic. So good of him to leave the club with players that have no fight, spirit or respect for the club or jersey.. Thanks  popa.

    You couldn't pay me enough to head north next weekend.

    I'll be heading to Canberra to watch our NYL squad continue their winning run.

    West Ham just showed how to play against the Champions in a derby.....solid defense, take the chances that come up and most importantly play with heart and commitment.

    This 4-1-2-3 formation that Gombau is trying to put the team into is definitely not working. He needs to go back to the drawing boards. The reason why is because the team has been drilled by Fox and Popovic to play as a 4-2-3-1 squad since day one!. Gombau should stick to this formation till the end of this season. After this season is over, go what your heart desires.

    Risdon was definitely out of position tonight, this was the first time ever in his career that he played in the Right Wing position. To make him play in this position in a game that was so vital to the club was a terrible mistake.

    If I'm aware, Mark Bridge could also play as a Striker? But, Gombau decided to go ahead with Scott over Bridge? Another mistake. 

    I know that Gombau was our former Socceroos under-23 manager. But he needs to know that this is a whole different ball game and a lot of these youngsters aren't going to provide the same outcome he might be witnessing when he was in that manager role.before being manager of the Wanderers. 

    I don't see the team being a top 4 team like we were at the start of the season. Infact, I don't even see the team being a top 6 team anymore. With that being said, could Gombau's role already be in jeopardy? It might be if this the results we keep getting from him.

    Tonight will go down as one of the most horrific nights in the club's history. We can't afford to lose like this to our rivals. We will be hearing about this for weeks.

    Lederer isn't going to sack Gombau a month and a half into his tenure.

    Lets face facts - our squad isnt that good but the players out there tonight didnt have pride in the jersey. 

    Gombau at least tried something but it showed that this season is over and he should focus on building a squad for next year.

    Something stinky is going on.  Sending out your kindy-kids' against the best team in Australia and benching your big guns?  And the players total lack of professionalism.   Me smells a rebellion afoot.  But why?

    • #ALeague clubs fear another season under FFA control thanks to State Feds by @JohnStensholt 
      John Stensholt12:00AM May 23, 2019
      Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer doesn’t want another A-League season under FFA control
      Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer doesn’t want another A-League season under FFA control
      Concerns are mounting that soccer officials will fail to strike a deal to make the A-League independent of governing body Football Federation Australia by a June 30 deadline, with clubs and state federations at loggerheads.
      Clubs have warned, if they do not wrest control of the league, it could experience another season of declining popularity and put at risk future sponsorship and commercial deals.
      Western Sydney Wanderers chairman Paul Lederer, who is also the chairman of the clubs’ association, said it would be “catastrophic” for the A-League to experience another season under FFA management.
      The looming June 30 deadline has galvanised the sport’s state and member federations, who have the majority say in a vote on a deal and are determined to extract financial and corporate governance concessions from the clubs.
      Those include possible compensation flowing to the member federations, who are arguing for board representation on an independent league, a certain percentage of the league remaining owned by FFA and even club owners having to pay compensation to states when they sell their clubs.
      Other sticking points between the clubs and federations remain the share from the $346 million TV revenue from Fox Sports, which still has four seasons to run on the current deal, commercial rights, ownership of intellectual property, structure of the new competition and the relationship between professional clubs and the game’s grassroots.
