Thanks Daniel, good luck at your next venture

A sentiment that I'm sure many WSW fans will share, his part in the fairytale ACL journey will go down in the history books. He might not have that many pages dedicated to him as Vitor Saba but you could say he had a bigger part to play in our campaign than Vitor had pages on this forum!!

Wanderers vs Frontale 1:0 mid March last year. Mullen's first game for the WSW, his first game of football in four months. Frontale seriously outplayed us at times, but the defence held. Mullen made his contribution, and was totally spent when he came off in the 82nd.

 

That's the kind off stuff I will remember him for. He is the football player he is, a Mullen, not a Polenz. It is a shame that it didn't work out but such is life.

 

Wear your ACL winners medal with pride, mate. You deserve it. And I doubt you'll ever forget the welcome at the airport.

Former Western Sydney Wanderers defender Daniel Mullen has joined Newcastle Jets until the end of the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season.

Mullen said he hopes to show leadership on and off the pitch during his initial tenure with the Jets. 

“For me I am looking at this as a great experience,†Mullen said. “I had a good time at Western Sydney Wanderers where I enjoyed a lot of success in winning the ACL [AFC Champions League] with the team. But it’s time to move on and I see Newcastle as a place that I can help the team move forward.†

“I will definitely be looking to show leadership skills during my time with the Jets. I do think I have quite a bit of experience in the [Hyundai] A-League, so I am looking to be a leader on and off the field.†

“First and foremost I want to be a positive influence on the team. I am a fresh face coming in so I am looking forward to bringing in all the positivity that I have shown at my past clubs.â€

“If I can play the majority of games and perform consistently for the team I will be happy on a personal level, but it’s important that we give back to the fans that have shown so much support to the Club, too,†Mullen said. 

Newcastle Jets mentor Phil Stubbins said he was pleased to reconnect with Mullen who he previously worked with at Adelaide United.

"Daniel is someone I know well from Adelaide, I was involved in giving him his promotion to the first team and he came in and had a really good impact on the team. I know the kid, he comes from a good family, I respect his father Joe as a real football person and I am pleased to be able to bring Daniel to the Jets." he said.

"I am pleased Daniel wants to be part of taking this club forward and this initial contract will allow us to have a good look at him over the coming 12 games." 

Mullen trained with his new teammates for the first time this morning and will be in contention for the Newcastle Jets next Hyundai A-League match versus Brisbane Roar on this Friday, 6th February at Hunter Stadium.

Not watched many Jets games with Daniel in the mix but he seems suited to them...i.e. battling for most of the game but more often than not just failing to deliver by a small margin

Watched a bit of the jets & mullen, he did exactly what he did when he was with us. He'd play a solid game doing nothing to fancy or amazing but switch off in key moments costing them goals. Small margins you may say but you can't afford to make mistakes as a CB cause they usually end up as goals.

Stupid question but do Aussies count as overseas to the Nix? Using a visa spot on a average centre back, isn't great.

Second thoughts we used a visa spot on a total disaster zone of a centre back

Aussies do not count (neither do Kiwis, whereas they do in Aus).

I assume that's because he played youth football in Aus? Barbarouses is considered a foreigner.
