    Highlight: Scored his first goal for the club against Perth Glory on 15th November 2014.
    Highlight: Was sent off in the Wanderers penalty shootout loss to the Brisbane Roar in a 2016/17 A-League elimination final, after coming on as a very late substitute he was given two yellow cards in quick succession.
    Description: Sotirio is a pacey winger who has become a persistent option off the bench for the Wanderers while continuing to pick up the occasional goal and providing a threat in behind A-League defences. He lasted 6 seasons, scoring the occasional goal, but did not evolve his performances to become a consistent goal threat or good with the ball at his feet while running at defences. In an odd stroke, what became his final game at the Wanderers saw him score against the Central Coast Mariners. After that game he was effectively banished from the playing squad entirely before being released at the end of the season.

Just a quick note that he's stayed on in Melbourne after the weekend's game and is debuting in Race one at Flemington :xnod:

Does he have to go around a turn or is it just a straight shot?

I think that means something else in horse racing.

Race 1 was 1000m, I think that's about as short as they get. So, as close to straight with no bend as they get. 

Btw, he didn't even get a place!

Talay has done a pretty good job with Sotirio. He looks much more dangerous than he did with us.

I disagree, Sotirio has been used to limited effect at Wellington but you’ll find that (1) He doesn’t get stick for being someone he isn’t (2) Used in a role that maximizes his strengths (3) Always does his defensive work, no matter if it’s the 5 or 95th minute

Take his role against us for example, Sotirio spent most of his time pushing high up the field & forcing our wing backs to push back turning our 3-4-3 into a 5-4-1. He didn’t do much with the ball but didn’t need to, with the score at 1-0, he got subbed at half time because Talay knew that we would need to chase the game & open our already leaky defense.

I’m just glad for him, playing for a team that don’t expect him to be something that he isn’t.

He can't even dribble properly when no-one is near him. What have our training staff been doing with him for 4 years? Three touches not even at a high speed and he can't control the ball. Why is a player like that kept in the side? Gombau needs to get rid of him.

For anyone who needs reminders why he kept getting **** put on him.

When times were good generally he wasn't in the starting line-up

back of the net 


That’s exactly the sort of clinical finishing Sotirio lacks
