    The news on Primin has really changed my outlook for this match, he makes such a difference. Throw in (1) Primin back unexpectedly (2) Grozos with his second start after long injury layoff (3) Tass slotting in for Jurman is a solid replacement (4) The boys & boss acknowledged that we weren’t good last week & expecting a reaction = a decent showing against Western United.

    We cant afford to play like we did against Easts & Brisbane, but being an older team I’m expecting us to have a bit more time on the ball & having extended periods of possession to get us back where we were against Victory, hopefully play us back into form. We were very wasteful last week & sloppy, if we play like we did then I expect WU to win but am hoping for a reaction.

    Yeboah - Meier - Adam

    Duke

    Schweigs - Baccus

    Wilmering - McGowan - Tass - Georgevski

    Lopar

    Subs: Ziegler, Grozos, Trew, Muller, Suman

    So with Pirmin looking like he is fit,I still think we could see this line up tomorrow

    When interviewed after the Roar game, Patrick said he wasn't expecting to play any minutes last week. He won't be rushed back in until 100%.

    Our front 3 were pedestrian last week. You can't expect an inexperienced #10 returning from an injury enforced layoff, to create all the movement & space & be spot on with his passing game, if our attack is static.  

    Muller does add another element to our attack, but, if our front 3 don't create the space for him to work in, he'll struggle to be creative. 

    I wasn’t expecting a world beater. But I certainly was expecting someone who could hit basic passes.

    His performance could be pretty easily summed up by the last pass he made before he got hooked. It was about 4m behind Duke bursting into space.

    Chalk it up to stage fright maybe. I seriously want this kid to succeed but none of the right signs have been showing in his first few performances

    It was Kosta's AL starting debut?

    I recall plenty of forumites bagging Sullivan after round 1, when the whole squad were poor.

    The following week he improved significantly, as did the squad & the views being expressed became positive.

    It was his AL debut, but he’s featured in FFA cup games.

    If he’s getting more game time, plenty of opportunities to improve then

    This

    Kosta is a 19 year old kid who’s missed a heap of footy, he’s not going to come in and dominate midfield straight away. 

    By end of season he’ll be a star

    4am start on a cold Sydney morning for a first flight to Geelong for a colder day to pit our German machine against a refurbished Dad's Army. An RBB TOD against a new West team. How good is life.

    Lol from SMH:

    “Meanwhile, Babbel admitted he was unsure if key midfielder Pirmin Schwegler (calf) would figure on Saturday night after suffering an injury in last week's scoreless draw with Brisbane Roar. The Swiss veteran's chances hinged on Friday's training session, which was closed to the media.”

    Airport is chaos this morning.

    41 flights had been cancelled yesterday afternoon / evening (ours was one of them) when I checked at 4pm so wifey and I are just about to leave now.

    Good luck if you're flying down later this arvo. See you at the pub 👍

    you see the boys train a bit Taurus so I have a question about grozos....

    last week he was very static in that number 10 spot - very little movement either to receive ball deep, run past meier or out wide to find space - is this something that Babbel wants him to do or was he just not confident last week and a bit 'deer in the headlights'?

    Our front 4 were lethargic & were easily marshalled by the Roar defence

    Kosta is a talent, he'll show his tekkers as he gets more opportunities. He's missed a lot of football in last 18 months & for the moment, he's best served being used as an impact player off the bench. 

    He almost won us a penalty, which would have been the only way we were likely to score last week. 

    Kosta entered the AL squad about the same time, maybe 6 months behind Keanu. He could have played 20+ games for us by now, had it not been for injuries.

    Undefeated and we still haven’t put our foreign players together 3-0 to us tonight it’s going to happen they are shite 

    also I’m out with family commitments so not in Geelong and not watching it in tv so given that it’s going to be 5-0 us

    The longer the week goes on, the more likely it is that we may see all 5 visa players start tonight, or at least share the pitch together. 

    When was the last time we started 5 foreigners? Zeiglers return when he reinjured?

    Although Lorente was out of favour at that point. Might have been a whole season

    FFA Cup QF vs City Sep 2018 we started Llorente, Ziggy, Roly, Bamujohann and Riera. 

    We started 4 then bought on Llorente for Tarek against Adelaide in the A-League in Dec 2018.

    AL Rd 10 vs City Jan 2019 we started Llorente, Ziggy, Roly, Bamujohann and Riera, so that appears to be the last time we started 5 foreigners. Ziggy played two more games before his injury, both had Llorente out of the squad.

    Do you know if all 5 played at any time when Foxe was in charge for 5 matches

    3 of the 5 Foxe A-League games we started all 5 foreigners, the other 2 one of them came off the bench. Didn't check FFA Cup.

    Be positive you Mofos 

    I'm trying to be and will be, but throwing a dart at a dart board with 20 different options would be just as likely to be as accurate as how we may perform tonight.

    Anyway, I'm as excited and positive as I always am before a game. Let's just hope I don't resort to the passive aggression of throwing lounge pillows into orbit, or worse still, at the tv.

    Interestingly, Yeboah keeps his place after a shocker last week...

    Is he the new Sotirio?

    • Here you go. But watch Scumbo and his fossil fuel backers try to legislate this out of existence. The promise of low-cost hydrogen storage to power our homes and businesses may be a lot closer to becoming a reality if new technology developed and owned in Australia can make a speedy transition from the lab. The country has more than 2 million homes with solar panels and new large-scale solar and wind farms are jostling for access to the power grid University of NSW researchers led by Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou say they have developed metal alloys capable of storing surplus electricity in the form of hydrogen much more cheaply than lithium batteries to take advantage of the renewables rush. "You can call me an alchemist, if you will," Professor Aguey-Zinsou said, laughing. "It is a game changer in how we use electricity - it's like the internet revolution." The scientist said he had spent 20 years developing the metal hydrides that can bond with hydrogen. The system uses power to create hydrogen, which is then stored until needed for electricity production via a fuel cell. Professor Aguey-Zinsou said the alloy contained titanium and "other common materials", but declined to name them, pending the issuance of a formal patent expected within weeks. The solid-state mix can operate in a range of temperatures – such as from minus-10 to 50 degrees – depending on the climate the storage was intended for. "It's safe ... it's not flammable," he said. "You cannot create the conditions when you have a certain burst of hydrogen." Hydrogen has lately emerged as a prospective alternative to fossil fuels. The Morrison government launched a National Hydrogen Strategy late last year, identifying break-even points needed to supplant gas and petrol. UNSW"s Hydrogen Energy Research Centre, backed by $10 million from Providence Asset Group, reckons it is ready to produce the world's first hydrogen batteries for households as soon as early 2021. "We aim to launch the LAVO [brand] commercial product by the end of this year, and start pilot production in the first quarter of next year," Alan Yu, a co-founder of Providence, said, adding the plan was to make the batteries in Australia. "It’s cheaper and cleaner than buying from the grid," Mr Yu, an entrepreneur who also invests in artificial intelligence, said. "This will help households to accelerate the clean energy transition in Australia and save money." Amy Kean, a board member of the hydrogen centre and director of Stride Renewables, said the household batteries would most likely hold up to 60 kilowatt-hours, or about five times the capacity of existing lithium storage on the market. About 130 centimetres high, the size of a small fridge, each would weigh 196 kilograms. The cost could go as low as 2¢ per kW-hour, or less than one-tenth the cost of lithium rivals and buying power from the grid, making the storage highly competitive, Ms Kean said. Bjorn Sturmberg, a research leader at the Australian National University's Research School of Electrical, Energy and Materials Engineering, said people "shouldn't underestimate the road from the science that works in the lab to mass deployment" in the market. The conversion of electricity to hydrogen and back again would "multiply the inefficiencies", and he cautioned against expecting a rapid take-up of the product. "The uses for hydrogen at the moment are extremely niche," Dr Sturmberg said. "This is a new opportunity within the niche." Mr Yu said his company hoped to add hydrogen storage for the company's planned five-megawatt community-owned solar farm planned for Manilla, near Tamworth in northern NSW. The batteries, held within two shipping containers, would aim to store about eight hours' worth of electricity, increasing the prospect that the nearby users could move off the grid entirely. The aim is to develop dozens of such solar farms, backed up with wind and storage, in coming years, he said
    • If I remember rightly, Andrews kept the restrictions on the advice of his Chief Medical Officer, defying Scumbo. Scumbo is now very quiet on Victoria.  This appears to be a management failure by the security company as well as stupidity by one of its staff. The failure to adequately pass on the risks to staff looks to be the primary cause of the spike. The security company should gave asked for the Victorian Dept of Health for a full training session. A 10 minute session was simply not enough for security guards who are not trained for such biosecurity issues. We can't point the finger either with the debacle of letting passengers off the Ruby Princess by the poor classification by NSW Health. Usually problems like this always come down to management failure.
