Kind of glad we've got an extra defensive replacement. Mullen seems to be a decent player from the one performance we have seen. Add Golec to the mix next season and we should have a solid defence. Think we have been a bit complacent lately.

 

Shame about Gol Gol but I am still looking forward to him coming back from injury. He looks a good player to me.

Just thought I'd say what a nice guy Daniel is.

He came out to my kids football session at Cook Park yesterday and spent a lot of time talking to the kids, answering questions and was genuinely interested in talking to everyone there.

 

My misses spent a lot of time talking to him too...gunna have to watch her.. :-)

 

Martin Lo came out too, nice guy. He was a little shy and quiet but it was good of him to be there..

Nice guy. Had a chat today about Guangzhou. Asked what they are like to play against (from his time in China) and he said they are quality but beatable, issue will be away game 39 degrees at 95% humidity with a massive crowd behind them. He played against them away in front of 60k and said it was nuts.

Great our boys are so down to earth.

I can't wait for the first Marty Lo chant, the last name is perfect to go along with the 'shololololos' in most of our other chants.

Is this it?

One less digit in his squad number, Mullen is given #3

confirmation of starting right back status? 

 

Alessi to push him though so that's good

Injury update from last week's game? Did he travel to China?

hamstring, even a minor strain would be a minimum 10 days, probably wouldn't do him well to travel with the team with the injury.... Much better to stay at home, get him intensive Physio and strengthening sessions so he could be back in training by the time the boys got back from the west Asia tour after china.

Im still not sold at Mullen at RB.

 

Too big, slow and not mobile enough for this position.

 

Struggles going forward effectively and facing players that are running at him with speed.

 

If he was bought as a replacement for Polenz, they are miles apart.

I really dont get how some players in the squad dont find themselves out of favor after successive poor performances under popa whilst some do.

 

Mullen has been rank average to dreadful in every game in a wanderers shirt. Yet its like he picks himself. I hope Adeleke can grow a right foot!

Apparently it's based on how they go at training during the week - not on their performance in the match.

I believe in a philosophy like this. but with good context in mind.

for example Average Joe is coming off 3 **** games, low on confidence and ability, but puts his heart and soul into training..... still deserves to be dropped. 

 

You cant continually select a player for his training abilities if his game day performances and outputs in the teams structure are continuously poor. Theres a balance to be found.

 

You dont drop Diego Costa because he struggles to train, because come game day hes class and a genuine team player.

 

blah. anyway, point is Mullen is shite and i miss Polenz :(

The guy as I understand it is a CB, being played sorta out of position at RB - like... he's not bombing on making runs and all that, but he's a CB, can we expect that?

We have today parted ways with defender Daniel Mullen by mutual consent with immediate effect.
Mullen departs with our best wishes having made nine appearances for the Red & Black, including 90 minutes in the AFC Champions League Final win, after signing in February 2014.
 
CEO John Tsatsimas thanked Mullen for his contribution to the Club over the past 12 months.
 
“Daniel was an important part of our victorious Champions League campaign and was a popular figure around the Club.
 
“Unfortunately first team opportunities haven’t been as regular as Daniel had hoped for so we have granted a release to allow him to pursue more playing time.
 
“We will remember Daniel’s year with the Club fondly and we wish him well for the rest of his career.â€
 
Mullen has departed the Club with immediate effect.
