    Pathetic Draw Against Perth


    mack

    The Wanderers failed to take advantage of a poor Perth Glory side to draw 1-1 in front of the lowest home A-League crowd ever for the Wanderers.

    The major piece of pre-game news was the loss for Perth of Diego Castro as he suffered an injury during the warmup. He was replaced on the bench by Jake Brimmer. For the Wanderers they were missing Brendan Hamill and Brendon Santalab, with Jack Clisby moving into central defence for the 2nd time this season.

    Western Sydney opened the scoring in the 9th minute. Following a short free kick routing, the ball was cleared by the Perth defence but only as far as Keanu Baccus. The young midfielder fired in a wayward shot that fell to the feet of Bridge, he set himself to shoot on the turn, and perhaps with the aid of a deflection the shot flew past Liam Reddy at the near post.

    Perth hit back instantly from the penalty spot. Joel Chianese was judged to have been cut down by Vederan Janjetovic after the striker got a touch onto a through ball. The replays were far from conclusive but the slight touch from Vedran to the knee of Chianese was enough for VAR to give it the green light. Xavi Torres sent Vedran the wrong way and it was 1-1 inside 15 minutes. Marcelo Carrusca could easily have won a penalty from an identical situation late in the half, but he elected to leap over Reddy and continue the attack.

    In the dying moments of an abysmal second half there was a flurry of drama. Jaushua Sotirio was cut down in a one on one with keeper Reddy and after a VAR delay the card colour was changed from a yellow to a straight red for the keeper. Central defender Dino Djulbic was pressed into action as an auxiliary keeper and he saw Carrusca's free kick blaze over the crossbar. Despite 8 minutes of having a man advantage and a non-keeping keeper, the Wanderers hemmed and hawwed in the backline and couldn't even manage a shot on target.

    Off the pitch the Wanderers decision to ban the RBB from the game resulted in the worst ever home A-League crowd for the club, with just 6,216 fans showing up, in a week where the club handed out hundreds of free tickets. Perhaps this will be a lesson to the club and the FFA to stop chasing the mainstream media and start accepting that football culture isn't going to always be the "family friendly" atmosphere in the AFL or NRL.

    The Wanderers play Wellington on Sunday March 10 at Sydney Showground.

    Horrendous. Pathetic. Diabolical.

    I realise that there is lots going on off the field but there is no excuse for a performance like that, it was truly one of the worst Wanderers games I’ve watched.

    Where was the heart? Where was the intensity? Where was basic footballing skills?  If we weren’t playing another terrible football team then it could have been a cricket score. Completely unacceptable.

    Lets not even bother mentioning the referee. It was just a terrible game from him, embarrassing. Whenever there was a comical referee error, my mate used the words “A-League refs huh”. Was used so many times I lost count.

    Not to make light of WSW fans' boycott it was a nice moment when the big screen focused on the mini RBB

    ... as for the game ... meh

    Little hooligans ruining the family friendly atmosphere. 50k fine, 3 point deduction and ban the lot, I'd say!

    Hope the club makes a full recovery in the next few years once we get back to Parra. Seems like we’ve gone backwards. Massively. 

    No atmosphere, terrible staidum and rubbish football.

    I hope all the suffering will be worth it in the end and we all look back and have a good laugh about the SOP days. 

    Felt like I was at a cricket game. Hopefully not a preview of things to come. 

    As for the team, they struggled in pretty much every aspect. So much for Gombaus “philosophy” starting to take shape. Worst game I’ve ever watched us play. 

    Massive changes needed in the off season.

    Positives - i only had to watch half the game, baccus snr climbing out of the dog house, reddy losing it for the 1000th time - better make it a 3 beer limit for the flight home, oh and the lack of atmosphere meant you could hear kenny lowe swearing at everyone.

    Negatives - everything else. **** football. **** crowd. **** stadium. **** atmosphere. **** refs. **** var. **** commentators.

    It was so bad i actually found it comically entertaining.

    6212..?   considering they offered additional free tickets to all members and gave away tickets to all female footballers thats pretty sh!t..

    Having never missed a home game, i was feeling guilty and nearly caved, but after 2 frustrating kids trial games and that leicester game i was footballed out.. Thank christ I didn't go, I would have topped myself having to watch that sh! display in that sh!thole, with that sh!t beer and the sh!t train ride etc....

    Imagine if there was 15k there though, how badly would everyone have turned on the RBB with a 'see we don't need you anyway'.

    The match should have been played at Edensor, that would have been a fantastic night out.

    Pathetic we didn’t look interested until about the 84th minute

    Not refs, FFAs, flares, Popa’s, foxe,  Trump, or Brexit fault we were ****, no urgency, no shape, no nothing 

    In the pre game interview gomau said something like we didnt play too bad against the Smurfs.  I couldnt beleive it. Cant wait to hear what he says this week.

    Yeah just awful. Hard to say whose midfield was worse....maybe us by a whisker. And just compounded by woeful officiating and soul-sapping lack of atmosphere. My personal highlight of the night was enjoying Krazy Kenny Lowe doing his impersonation of a whacky wavy man as he raged at the match officials, his players, our players, the crowd, the pitch, the line markings, the ball, the nets.....whatever. It's comedy gold.

    The ref was the worst I've seen in the A league and you all know the competition is fierce for that title.

    The game itself was bad , both teams showed why they are where they are on the ladder. Could not believe that the only plan we had was kick it up and hope for the best. No plan and no urgency even in last few minutes with a man advantage. What a boring game ...the only thing that saved it's a bit was Reddy and the crowd telling him off.

    TBH it might be better if we don't finish in the 6th position , maybe some action is taken. 

    Next season, get rid of all the dead wood & marquees and just play the youths....who cares if we finish last...use it to build up for the following year.

    Walking out i had a short chat with a guy from Wigan who came because Riera played there. 

    He commented that Riera had no service.

    However, he said his lasting memory was how shite the refereeing was tonight. Well done Gillett for destroying another reputation, that of Australian football.

    In the last 5min, against 10 men and a non-proper gk, we did not even must a shot on goal?! 

    It's round 22 ffs, and the team still looks tired, and it showed! We need a new strength and conditioning coach, no excuses. 

    Our formation is a mess, ball movement is mediocre at best, and players look disincentive, no heart, no passion. 

    Gumby will go by the end of the season, trust me, he's had enough. 

    Where we are at now is such a contrast to where we were in S1/S2.

    The Reddy send off just highlighted Sotirio's lack of quality. A better player would have realised he had the keeper beat and then just have a tap in instead of going for the dive which resulted in a foul outside the box. Still, they persist with him!!!

    Well that was terrible

    Can't believe Carrusca didn't try smashing it at Djulbic to test his reactions - but at least, to be fair, he did jog off when he got substituted which was a nice thing

    Other people will take the mantle for raging on the game so I'll rant about this

    Olympic Park station crowd control is ****ing **** and completely non-sensical *************

    There's a train to Lidcombe that departs in two minutes and is obviously not full at all BUT HEY LET'S MAKE EVERYONE WALK TO THE OTHER END OF THE PLATFORM SO WE ALL MISS THE TRAIN

    ******* shambles

    absolutely ridiculous

    fold the station

    #olympicparkout

    i'm handing in my opal card
