  • He may be a legend, but Corry prefers to let his boots do the talking. By: Michael Cockerill

     

    RON CORRY has spent a lifetime proving people wrong, and here he is again, defying convention, defying perception, and signing on as the inaugural goalkeeping coach for Western Sydney Wanderers at 70.

    Quite right the guy is a legend. He's still got it as well. When I lobbed up to the inaugural Western Sydney Wanderers training session, I watched him go around with Covic and a trial player, when he hit a shot from outside the area that smacked into the top corner. Covic dived full stretch but didn't have a chance.

    The Western Sydney Wanderers have announced the signing of Ante Covic and Labinot Haliti

     

    In anticipation of the first training session, the ex-Victory stopper and ex-Jets striker have put pen to paper for the new club and will be unveiled at the first public training session being held today in Blacktown.

     

    Covic was one of the best defensive players in the league last season and will provide exceptional security to an already experienced backline.

     

    Haliti is noted as more of an attacking winger or second striker and has a return of one goal every 5 games or so. He is also known for picking up yellow cards for removing his shirt after scoring.

     

    The two signings continue the existing theme of picking up free agents with considerable A-League experience in order to have a competitive team from the opening kick-off.

     

    It brings Wanderers to a total of 9 players. The squad building work is far from complete and the club has yet to sign any foreign visa players.

    • It seems to be getting rave reviews, from what I understand. PS From the little I've seen/heard of it, the subtle crowd audio is a good thing. Phoney...yes, but it works.
    • i remember after rodney king there was a truck driver called reginald denny, bunch of people swarmed his truck threw him out and started beating the hell out of him they were angry and had every right to be angry but why take it out on some random truck driver, if you are going to riot and beat the **** out of someone make sure its not an innocent person because that just makes the situation worse
