    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.

    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.

    A distress signal would have been appropriate tonight surely not even the FFA would have begrudged us that

    Participation is the most important thing.

    Babbel look shellshocked in the fox interview, claimed the players are not that good and aren’t listening to game plan. 

    Claims there is a generational problem and the players don’t know what it is to lose 5-1 - suggesting they don’t really hurt 

    interesting comments think I’ll take this to the coaches thread

    Season over, time for Babbel to tell the players with no mentality to stop bothering to come to training.

    Making them better, making them listen, making them hurt - that's his job.

    Babbels job is to get the team in a position to perform week in week out . He is failing miserably. Every week it's the players fault....never his.....what a cop out.

    Riera clearly doesn't care about playing for this club...a few times he just stood like a statue and meekly gave the ball away...his body language screams '**** you..i hate this ******* place' what a ******* chunt.

    I enjoyed the bit where the ball went into the stand, the RBB wouldn’t give it back, they started chanting “we’ve got the ball”, eventually had the ball taken away then chanted “we’ve lost the ball”.

    That bit and Duke’s goal were good, the rest was a hot dumpster fire.

    That was a fate worse than a fate worse than death.  Omg how much lower can we go. 5-1 at home to a fellow bottom 4 team. 

    Maybe, just maybe, Babbel is out of his depth. Apart from returning to Parramatta where to next for this team?

    Very dispiriting and no light at the end of the tunnel

    Too many negatives to mention but you always  have to look for positives and I saw two today.

    1. Duke will be good for us.

    2. Leaving at halftime makes the trip home so much quicker. I never left a game at halftime but enough is enough. Don't care if we lose the remaining games but half that team I never want to see playing for us anymore.

    Losing at home to CCM would be the final humiliation...

    I also think Babbel is clueless on how to turn this around. I don't expect us to become great all of a sudden but I expect him to be able to tighten us up and made harder to beat...but no improvement, if anything we are going further backwards and it is clear that some players are not playing for the club any more which is unacceptable..

    Duke is fresh to the club, he will soon be ground down by the shite around him and catch the wanderers disease that is throughout this club..

    Sitting in the stands tonight I must admit at 5.0 down I was hoping we would concede 6 or 7. Was hoping with record breaking loss, media, papers, commentators, would start applying some pressure to the owners/ceo. This is embarrassing. Shockingly bad. I don’t know what else to say. Maybe a protest outside spotless next Saturday before the game? No one goes in. No one. We need to do something, the owners have shown they won’t

    FFS... why do I bother.......

    Had these lyrics playing on the way home - seemed fitting.

    I push my fingers into my eyes
    It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
