serious question how does he command the defense and box? with redmayne it felt like our defense wasnt as good and Tyson was much more commanding but how about the smurf?

The one thing I can say goat is that first available match he starts, I think that says where the coaching staff see which keepers are 1 & 2.

 

Robbie Slater "Very interesting selection when he hasn't played any games or been at Sydney training for quite some time so his match fitness can't be there. It is a huge gamble to throw him straight in or suggests that he was training somewhere else"

 

In response to speedy whether something sinister went on, "I think something sinister went on". Obviously something we don't know.

He is doing ok. It will take time to build cohesion and understanding with the coaches but more importantly the team.

 

Great thing is he seems very vocal and instructing of the defenders

Kalac wanted him.

He wanted out.

They sorted it with FC.

 

Isn't that what went on?

88th minute on debut. One handed stop from Kamau when on goal. Then made safe with Fornaroli snapping around. This is why he is half decent

St Ante speaks well of (potential) St Vedran after his debut game...and offers advice about keeping his head at the derby next week.

 

EDIT- Didn't mean to double post this below...Won't let me delete atm.

First player Popa let go was a Croatian. Sure there's not some Spanish Inquisition currently needed?

So are you saying his performance didn't justify his inclusion?

No, he is just saying what redwhiteblack used to say. You know, the kid who saw Croats were others saw Aussies... redwhiteblack may have had too much beer...

I know what he's saying, I just wanted him to actually type it out and see what sort of responses he got.

Yeah but you struggle to comprehend things that aren't already spelt out for you.

First appearance in red and black, gets into the A-League team of the week.

the franjic goal was unlikely to have been saved by any keeper considering the curve from the outside of the boot.

I say good effort since there were no goals from Fornaroli or Vi$ion plus the defensive effort was much better.

 

a clean sheet against the smurfs would be great.

Was well received when he came over with the other players to greet the travelling support.

If the Sydney FC fans give Vedran any kind of abuse, I can imagine he would give it straight back. Don't see him as someone who would bite his tongue.

Reserving my judgement keeping my 5 game rule before deciding on the player

 

At first people were spewing fire over the signing, now from what I've seen there is a fair bit of love for him after 1 game. Is Vedran a good keeper? Yes. Is he better than Tyson and Redmayne? Yes, but I think he's only a few shades better than the latter. Has Vedran had his share of blunders? Yes, definitely.

 

On a personal, instinctual level I gave a sigh of relief when I saw Vedran would be starting. Our goalkeeping has been truly depressing this season and hopefully Vedran will prove to be an authoritative and commanding figure at the back to keep our leaking defence organised.

reserving my judgment until he makes 5 gordon banks quality saves in the derby. then I might be willing to give him a chance.

 

I still fully expect him to throw the ball into our net, tell us all to get ****ed and then walk off the pitch on saturday
