    Wanderers Demolish Ill-Disciplined Sydney United


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers faced up against local side Sydney United in the FFA Cup Round of 16 tonight in Campbelltown, demolishing the NPL side and taking full advantage of poor defence and discipline to annihilate their opponents 7 goals to 1. Following the game the Wanderers were drawn in a Quarter Final clash away to Melbourne City.

    After a back and forth opening, Daniel Georgievski cut back from deep on the United left flank but fired his shot high and wide. In the 11th minute Mo Adam found himself in space at the edge of the area, his shot curled away from the far post and out for a goal kick. Sydney United had their first major chance of the game in the 15th minute, breaking on the counter-attack with a sweeping move that ended without result as their striker mis-controlled the last cross, Daniel Lopar gratefully picking up the rolling ball.

    The Wanderers struck the first blow via wingback Bruce Kamau. Georgievski created an opening on the left, passing onto Radoslaw Majewski, he cut back onto his left foot, crossed over the centre of the penalty area, Kamau chested down a deflection, then finished emphatically with his left boot. Georgievski continued his excellent game as he nearly scored the Wanderers second with a cross-shot that hit the crossbar.

    Georgievski put an exclamation point on his performance by doubling the Wanderers advantage in the 22nd minute. Taking advantage of poor playing out from the United defence, letting Majewski pounce on the loose ball, launch a rocket that the United keeper could only push out to the 6 yard box, Georgievski was following through like a striker, reacted quicker than central defender Peter Markovic and he squeezed the ball through the gap between the on rushing keeper & Markovic's forlorn dive. Mo Adam almost made it 3 in the blink of an eye, Baccus nodding on a header that Adam ran on, United's keeper Daniel Sadaka threw himself to the feet of the young striker to prevent the scoreline getting any worse.

    10 minutes from half-time the Wanderers lead was extended to 3-0. Pirmin Schwegler battling in midfield to win the ball, he quickly aimed a through ball behind the United defence, Adam lashed a shot that Sadaka blocked low with the foot, but once again the rebound fell to a Wanderer, as Yeboah flung himself into the air, right foot arcing through the air to knock the ball from a meter out.

    In the first few minutes after half-time Sydney United had a penalty. After a corner, Patrick Antelmi dived in the 6 yard box when being marked by Schwegler, the referee was conned all ends up and Antelmi sent Lopar the wrong way to make it 3-1.

    Daniel Lopar stepped up to keep the game at 3-1 with three miraculous saves in a row. The first, he stuck a hand out after looking beaten at the near post, then not long later he dove well down to his right on a long range strike then reacted magnificently to keep Perkatis from a tap-in.

    The mini-comeback was stomped out with a Wanderers counter-attack in the 56th minute. Georgievski attacked down the left flank and delivered a cross into the centre and Matthew Bilic suffered the awful fate of seeing his attempted clearance skew into the top corner of his own net to make the match 4-1.

    Flashpoint on the hour mark, after the Wanderers cleared the ball away from goal Vlastelica put in a shocking late lunge from behind on Tate Russel, sparking a melee that resulted in former Wanderer Yianni Perkatis throwing a punch. Kurt Ams giving Vlastelica a yellow for the tackle and a straight red for Perkatis.

    Tate Russel who replaced Bruce Kamau at half-time sealed the match with a powerful left footed strike in the 70th minute. With United down to 10, he found acres of space on his flank and after a neat touch to bring the ball down, his shot beat Sadaka on his right.

    Majewski then capped his game by scoring his first and the Wanderers 6th and then Georgievski scored another, but I couldn't tell you what happened as I'm writing this because Fox Sports decided the world needed to watch the Central Coast & Brisbane Roar game instead of the scheduled televised match. After having to watch that game for a while we eventually saw the goal, Majewski blasted a right footed wonderstrike that found top bins, then Georgievski cut back inside onto his right and placed a shot into the bottom corner to make it 7-1, and that was the scoreline at full time.

    The Wanderers dominated the first half, fought their way back from a brief comeback by Sydney United then rammed home their advantage after the Perkatis red card. It was a thoroughly professional performance and leaves the Wanderers still in the hunt for the first trophy in years.

    With 8 teams left in the FFA Cup draw the fixtures are: Adelaide United vs Newcastle Jets, Melbourne City vs Western Sydney Wanderers, Brisbane Strikers vs Moreland Zebras and Hume City vs Central Coast Mariners.

    According to Bossi, Sydney United rested half their squad. 

    I think they benched a few instead of starting them like Rose and Sim.

    Uskok could not play because he had played for his previous Melb NPL team

    If we didn't want to get carried away, get ahead of ourselves or believe too strongly in a new dawn,

    would it be fair to at least say, we're better than we've been since our enforced exodus years?

    I for one, can't wait for the new season.

    And bring on the first Parra Derby.

    What was the drama after the game at the SUS end? Couldn’t see too much as I walked past but heard a heap of angry Croats yelling at Police while hiding behind a brick wall...

    Great performance, we’re going places !

    I did see some D.H. throw a Nazi salute on camera although I don't think he realised it was on him.

    THey've played a bunch of games in the NPL Finals recently and midweek, and have the GF this weekend. Of course they were resting players. You could see with their subs at 60min they had an eye on the weekend.

    Price of success. We can only play what's in front of us.

    Remember although the score was 7-1 at 3-1 Lopar made that triple save and then we scored to make it 4-1 and they went down to 10 men. Lopar save was a turning point

    Even if they had scored to make it 3-2 I still believe we would have outlasted them....maybe a 5-2 finish instead

    Due to the tyranny of distance I didn't go last night so had to rely on 80 minutes of Fox Sports coverage. However I did attend last years game at Marconi Stadium against Bonnyrigg who were as good as relegated from NPL1 and there was a significant difference in last night's effort compared with the scraping of a 2-1 win against Bonnyrigg. 

    Onwards and Upwards !!

    No one's mentioned it yet, but how important is it to have a quality keeper between the sticks! Lopar was sensational and could well be one of our most valuable players if he stays fit and on the pitch. The strikers and playmakers always get the plaudits but a goalkeeper pulling off a sensational save is just as important as a goal scored. 

    In a recent rant I accused Vedran of napping when there is little traffic coming towards him. That's when he is at his worst, and cost us big time. Lopar is the polar opposite - switched on and performing when it matters. MB picked a good one, no doubt.

    Pretty sure the switch happened before that.

    Yep they saved up their flare until the 7th goal went in and they weren’t even on TV

    Slater commented after the game that he thought the red card was a bit harsh. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought I saw him throw a friggen punch at Yeboah?

    Yeboah is lucky there is no Var he threw a punch too 

    as for harsh red card, it probably was but  the original challenge should have been red

    He didn't call the penalty to SU58 as a harsh decision against us did he?

    Anyone know why Kamau was taken off at half-time? Was it a precaution due to the niggle earlier in the match?

    Yianni Perkatis saw red mist for some inexplicable reason. After the through the back challenge on Tate, the melee occurred & whilst being restrained by numerous WSW players, he was seen to be kicking out / studs up towards the legs of someone I assume Kwame, who has been accused by SU of throwing a punch. The video of the melee is said to clearly show YP's actions which earn't him the red card.

    Dumb move Yianni, 3rd man in then you start inciting further trouble. That brainsnap will see you miss the NPL1 GF on Saturday & most likely, a couple of games at the start of next season.  

    Kicking Kwame in the nuts, whilst being held back by numerous players, isn't a wise strategy.

    I'd put a dollar on that.

    Well, I would have if I was a gambling man.

    The exuberance is good and welcome, however, I'll temper my enthusiasm until we sweep aside sterner opposition in the coming weeks and the early rounds of the A-League.
