    Wanderers To Face Perth In FFA Cup Opener


    mack

    The Western Sydney Wanderers to kick off Season 2019/20 in Western Australia up against Perth Glory in the FFA Cup.

    The 2019/20 season will begin in earnest in Western Australia in the FFA Cup. Markus Babbel will want his rebuilt team to perform far better than the club did last year, despite a semi-final finish after losing to Sydney FC 3-0 the Wanderers were far from impressive in their wins against Darwin Hellenic, Bonnyrigg White Eagles and Melbourne City.

    The other A-League vs A-League fixtures: are Sydney FC vs Brisbane Roar, Perth Glory vs Wanderers and Melbourne Victory vs Newcastle Jets.

    The State League fixtures: Canberra Tigers FC vs Hume City, South Hobart vs Marconi Fairfield, Adelaide Olympic vs Floreat Athena, Magpies Crusaders vs Coomera Colts, Olympic FC vs Bayswater City, St George vs Sydney United, Darwin Olympic vs Edgeworth Eagles, FC Bulleen Lions vs Moreland Zebras and Mt Druit Town Rangers vs Manly United.

    The NPL vs A-League fixtures are: Maitland FC vs Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Knights vs Adelaide United, Campbelltown City SA vs Melbourne City and Brisbane Strikers vs Wellington Phoenix.

    The Wanderers preparation will include their Western Sydney Stadium grand opening against Leeds United on the 20th of July and one game against the Gold Coast Knights on the 24th of July as part of the pre-season camp. The FFA Cup matches will take place over the course of 3 weeks of mid-week fixtures starting from the 23rd of July. Presumably the Wanderers will ask for a later fixture to avoid having to cancel the pre-season camp in Queensland.

    Thanks for the reply.  So the sensible fans suffer because of the past actions of a few morons who I thought had largely been eradicated anyway.

    I wonder if there will be a time when the situation becomes normal again.

    I too hope the situation becomes normal again. Season One & Two normal. It's the sensible fans that made this club what it became after all. Those moron fans. It's all about them. Like paper that flies too close to the sun. Then they complain. Really. Oh em gee.

    Not sure why I'm bothering to buy into this...again. But, with respect...here I go.

    What brought the club's  support to a peak of its awesome  power was when there was a mesmerising synergy between a few hundred brilliant and loud actives, and 20 thousand ordinary supporters in the stands.

    Pretty much everyone would 100%  acknowledge that all the brilliant initiative came from the energy and passion of the RBB. There is no question about that, and without the RBB, we'd have had nothing of the support we had

    But within that support, there were elements that, from the start, contained the potential destruction of that synergy (which, in honesty, was dissipating from about Season 3 or 4).

    Yep, sure, there were clear outside pressures...e.g. overpolicing and some disgusting displays from the riot squad etc, etc, who I hope do not make a reappearance.

    But if a resurrected RBB intends to go down exactly the same path as it did the first time round,  with exactly the same elements eating it from within, then we will never have a chance of regaining what we had in those early season.

    The RBB with potentially 30,000 supporters in the stands would be beyond awesome. To reconnect with that,  just a little compromising of the original vision might be needed.

    I'm not sure that that compromise will happen, although I'd desperately love to think it could.

    That's my 20cents worth anyway.

    If we are at a point now where aleague clubs are considering having closed door trial games due to police costs then how is (an eventual) second division club meant to get by when their crowds will be presumably similar size?

    Fair point. But we may be an exception rather than the rule.
