    Jets Down Wanderers In Newcastle


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers have been beaten by Newcastle Jets tonight as they suffered their 3rd A-league defeat in a row.

    Another controversial defeat, the Jets took advantage of lucky officiating to stay in the game until the second half where they opened the scoring in the 76th minute with a goalmouth scramble, and a 2nd late on from Dimi Petratos.

    Goalkeeper Daniel Lopar starred for the Wanderers, particularly in stopping the Jets strikers in multiple one-on-one situations. The first in the 15th minute was a right footed block against Jason Hoffman. Later on he used the opposite foot to deny Arroyo from an acute angle.

    Just like the week prior where the Wanderers were stuffed by a joke of a penalty call by an inept referee. Whereas last week they were punished by a non-penalty, this week they suffered from two obvious penalties in their favour being denied by Kurt Ams. Kwame Yeboah was clear through on goal when he was bought down from behind, Ams missed it completely, then ambled over for a VAR check that lasted about 2 seconds before denying the obvious penalty. Shortly after Nikolai Topor-Stanley should have given away another penalty for a stomp on the feet of the Wanderers attacker, but it was also waved away.

    The second half the Wanderers dominated the early stages, and were unlucky not to take the lead on the hour mark. Daniel Georgievski's short pass to Mitch Duke resulted in a first time right footed strike that Glenn Moss dove smartly for to deny, a follow up from Nicolai Muller was covered up once more by Moss and the last shot of the action was an acrobatic & inventive leaping kung-fu style front kick by Duke that blasted the ball over the top of the goal.

    Newcastle went in front in the 77th minute. After a dinked chip to the back post that was knocked down by a Jets attacker, Pirmin Schwegler stuck out a boot off-balance to prevent it reaching another Jets player only for it to fall to the feet of Angus Thurgate 3 yards from goal and he fired past Lopar. Newcastle sealed the game in the 85th minute, taking full advantage of Schwegler being kept off the pitch by the fourth official for a blood inspection despite him having already been cleaned up by the physio. After losing the ball in midfield, Newcastle dropped a long ball over the top of the stretched Wanderers defence, Thurgate timed his run well, drew Lopar out of goal and passed off to Dimi Petratos who tapped the ball into the open net.

    The Wanderers travel to Eden Park in New Zealand next week to face the Wellington Phoenix on Saturday December 7th.

    Honestly maybe I should stop talking ****, there are a few more positive here I would never attack because they were respectful to those who disagree with them and I respect that a Lotz however a few of the positive police were attacking anyone who had a negative opinion and if they are going to be disrespectful to many people I have no issue with being disrespectful to them, however it's not ideal wanderers fans attacking each other even if I am part of it 

     

    i have immense respect for those who were positive in all the negativity and didnt attack anyone else but i do admit i am being petty from time to time

    We are still 4th. Wellington did us a favour by beating Adelaide but the time is near for the team to put up.Lose and we are in freefall, win and we stay in the show.

    It's getting to that sort of situation. We do have quality in the squad. When it comes together as a team though is anyones guess. I loved the never say die attitude of our first four rounds.....the derby especially.

    The rest has been frustrating as a fan.

    Id hate to think what this place would be like if we were in Perths position.

    honestly we have been in a worse position, i'll stop with the personal attacks and the bullshit the thing i took issue with happened i think after the sydney derby, its long over and pointless stoking the flames like i have been doing, i think a lot of the issues is expectation vs reality, its far easier if we know we are going to lose(at least in my opinion)

    Wasn't motivated to comment last night after the loss. I was pretty bummed by the result and the tone of some of the comments bummed me out even more. Im a practiser of the life philosophy of passive dislike.....okay i just made that term up, but essentially if i don't like someone i acknowledge that to myself and......and this is the crucial bit........i do absolutely nothing about that dislike. I do my absolute best to not act on it. It makes for not so surprisingly calm and relatively drama free existence. And this is a bit out there but i have found practicing passive dislike leads to extremely lengthy amounts of time where i am not actively engaging in being a chunt to someone. Like generallly in life.  Again, a bit crazy and a bit out there eh? Just a thought

    About the game

    I dont know, i thought we were good in parts, but those misses cost us. Again, consistency seems to allude us. Is it down to a lack in quality of individual performances? Or the gaffers tactics? Or players not being played in there most suited position?

    Wait.... so if I start eating meat again she'll leave me?

    **** I'm an idiot

     

    (Also, you have to wonder about girls who are impressed by vegan smells. I mean, in my case, wonder how I let them get away, because, that's a life partner right there, right?)

    Away games can be expensive,

    Travelodge hotel Newcastle (older than me)

    tickets

    dinner 

    breakfast 

    fuel 

    no change out of 500 bucks

    any decent hotel was $300 plus 

    then to get shortchanged on watching an average soccer match :(

    My only comments are:

    Middle of the park is our issue we no linkage from the DM 's to the strikers and leave a hole middle of the Park 

    Baccus was very average in first half a little better second half , give him another chance 

    Muller does not defend middle of the park, or feed well put him on the wing and see how good he is Duke to CF , Yeboah  on in the last twenty 

    Sullivan to AM 10 he will defend 

    Give Ziegler game time to see if match fitness lifts his level which is not far off, Macgowan is is a shade short

    Meir looks a lost cause :( but hope I am wrong

    My opinion only

    Yeah i guess. But we like going for weekends away every now and then and to be honest we spend **** all in between. We are not big shoppers and keep to a tight budget. I actually keep an away grand final fund should that ever be needed, yeah right :D Travel and getting on the road or rails is my interest i guess.

    Saturday morning by 9.30 we were at a cafe on the sea front at Newcastle. The lad went bodyboarding and i went to do some laps of the seapool and lay in the sun for a bit. Then i went and joined the lad in the waves..got smashed and dumped as per usual and so left him to it. 

    After that went for our usual fish n chips, ok..but found somewhere else to try for next time. Afternoon lad got his scooter out and went up and down the river path..i had a go of course because i am a big ******* kid.

    After that we went to Frontline Hobby shop at Broadmeadow to pick a few things up, bought an old school airfix kit i am going to do with the lad at some point over xmas / school holls.

    Went to the game after that. Although numbers low we joined in with the chants and made best of it. Nuff said about the game.

    After match a quick meal and drink or two. Breakfast in the morning and had a walk by the river, watched the boats for a bit. I like this as reminds me of the river Tees in the Boro.

    Headed for home at around 12 and home by 2ish. Yes we spent a bit but the football was only part of that. These kinds of family trips are our only treat really. I reckon some would spend more than us this weekend over 2 Saturdays in Westfield.

    Its family memories isnt it..thats what weekends like this are.

    I cannot recall Muller doing anything of real quality (since signing) in his total time on the field in a Wanderers shirt. His headed effort on the Saturday would have embarrassed an amateur!

    If we consistently get our best 11 on the field and find an answer to the 10 issue (Muller needs to be on the wing and let loose) we can get the season back on track. We have a gun 'keeper and there is quality in the team - patience for now.

    I'm not a West Ham supporter, however, I think we should adopt their Anthem/ Walk out song as it beautifully sums up our dreams, hopes and eventually despair. Something like many of us are going through at the moment.

     I'm forever blowing bubbles,
    Pretty bubbles in the air,
    They fly so high, nearly reach the sky,
    Then like my dreams they fade and die.
    Fortune's always hiding,
    I've looked everywhere,
    I'm forever blowing bubbles,
    Pretty bubbles in the air.

    And besides it's singable.....has a nice melody.

    These are the issues I saw on Saturday night..

    - We struggle to break teams down when they defend deep or park the bus alas Jets and Roar
    - We are being dominated in the midfield, when the Jets were able to break, they are able to go on the counter, over run our midfield and be up on the other end of the pitch
    - When we get in attacking positions, we seem or looked clueless on what to do next, we pass the ball to someone and we instantly lose possession.
    - Muller looked completely lost out there, he does not know what his role is.
    - We were caught out twice from the Jets offside trap, Thurgate was able to get through clean and be onside, Jets second goal was totally unacceptable, why did our players just stand there hoping the Assistant Ref to raise the flag for offside? No one tracked back or chased them down and it became Lopar vs the 2 Jets player, of course they had to score there.

    Babbel said he wasn't happy with the performance, the players are not playing to the game plan that was setout, he said it was freestyle football.

    Ugarkovic is a type of player that we need in this team, alongside Scwhelger.

    What i would be assessing if i was Babbel n co, is who or what is impeding the players in carrying out the game plan. Drill down to the issue

    I have an opposing view on the game yes we were bad but the Jets were not great either. I think 1st half the Jets and us were very even (bad as each other) but the Jets fashioned the better chances and we can thank Lopar for keeping us in the game. From what I saw it was two teams who cannot hold the ball for more than 3 passes before giving it back to the opposition. 2nd half we really should have capitalised in the 30 minutes we really were all over them and it wasn't until the Jets brought in Thurgate that the game opened up for the Jets we never got a handle on him.

    It was again long balls slicing though our defence just like City did last week for their goals and a speedy guy up front latching on the ball. And I had to laugh as well because this game we made sooo many chances how we didn't score is beyond me but the last few weeks we only needed one chance and we would score. 

    I have to single out Muller on this game. He really looks lost out there not sure if its him playing out of position or something else but he has been ineffective.
