    Wanderers Bombed By Newcastle Jets


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers chance of a top 6 berth is over, after a 5-1 loss to the Newcastle Jets tonight.

    With end to end action in the first 10 minutes, Oriol Riera had the best chance of the early going. His 12th minute strike on the end of a Wanderers counter-attack came after he weaved inside Nikolai Topor-Stanley, forcing Glen Moss into a full arms length stretching save.

    Newcastle opened the scoring shortly after, taking advantage of sloppy play from Brendan Hamill. The Wanderers captain woefully underhit a 10 meter pass that was intended for Roly Bonevacia, but it was intercepted half way to the intended destination. The Jets broke as Ugarkovic released Hoffman, his pass to the far side found Dimitri Petratos and he lined up a trademark left footed curling shot and that had Vedran Janjetovic beaten well and truly.

    The Jets had a two goal advantage in the 22nd minute. Having worked the ball into the penalty area, a Petratos backheel found the feet of Georgevski. His shot was blocked by Tarek Elrich, the rebound fell to Hoffman, he reflexively stuck out a boot, the ball bounced into the turf and over the desperate dive of Janjetovic.

    Deep into first half stoppage time Marc Tokich was judged to have taken Ronald Vargas out in the penalty area, after he reached in with his foot to kick the ball away, with some contact on both ball and player the VAR declined to step in. Roy O'Donovan stepped to the spot, and blasted it to Vedran's left, the keeper made the save but unluckily for the Wanderers it went straight back to where it came from and O'Donovan tucked home the rebound.

    The second half began as the first had, with Newcastle scoring. Five minutes in, Newcastle attacked down the right flank and launched in a cross to the back post, Vedran flapped weakly at it, doing little more than dropping it to the feet of Ridenton who turned and shot through the legs of Brendan Hamill's attempted cover defence.

    Tokich's nightmare of a game went from bad to worse when he gave away his second penalty of the night, for a stupid foul against Jason Hoffman. O'Donovan made no mistake and buried the penalty.

    Mitch Duke came on for his Wanderers debut as his side prepared to take a corner and he made an immediate impact to give the Wanderers their first goal of the evening in the 69th minute. Tokich aimed an in-swinging corner to the near post that Duke attacked strongly, flicking it over the top of Glen Moss into the far side goal netting. The Wanderers looked better following the introduction of Duke & Sotiro, there was no further goal-mouth action for either side and after 3 minutes of stoppage time the game ended with the 5-1 scoreline. The loss puts Newcastle 8 points clear of the Wanderers, while the Wanderers will fight it out with the Roar and Mariners for the wooden spoon.

    Western Sydney play the Mariners on Saturday the 8th of February at the Sydney Showground.

    What's the record a league loss?

    Can we just get that record too. We may as well get all of them.

    I think it’s 8-1

    I think we’ll get the 8 but not score the 1...

    8-1 and 7-0 are the biggest margins (both by a home side).

    8-2 is the biggest away team win.

    The club surely cannot continue to ignore this..action has to be taken..like hiring shady people to burn spotless and anz down. Then start rebuilding a football club worthy of western Sydney.

    On the plus side, we haven’t conceded in like 25 minutes 

    Pretty good

    Scored more than Bulut did in 18 seconds than he did in half a season

    Missing my first home game of the season, but through  my alternating tears and laughter from my sick bed, dare I hope for a little good news and hope for the future by asking for the result of the youth League Grand Final.

    Riera is getting bundled off the ball quite badly

    Solution is to get an even bigger and stronger striker who can win duels in the air, or go the opposite and find someone like Henrique who can use superior agility and guile to slip through

    Going half half isn’t working

    Is this the first time ever that the RBB haven’t done the Poznan?

    Its been a useful 10 or 15 mins to paper over a few cracks of a dreadful performance.

    I think we should try to protect the loss. Don't want to concede any more...

    Anyone see that stat? 50 plays into the penalty area - for one goal

    Newcastle had 27 forays into the box, for 5 goals
