    Highlight:
    Description: Aspro as he has come to be called, is a young and improving ball playing central defender. After making sporadic appearances in the first two seasons at the Wanderers, he came of age in the 2016/17 season, being called upon as the #1 central defender over the vastly experienced Robbie Cornthwaite & foreign player Aritz Borda. Unfortunately for young Aspro, a severe knee injury he picked up during the Wanderers successful National Youth League Grand Final saw his 2017/18 season cut short, and perhaps lead to his release from the Wanderers on 14.5.2018.

Is Aspro your favourite player?

 

Know someone whose favourite player is Aspro, and you haven't got them a Christmas prezzie yet?

 

Then be sure to check out http://wanderersauctions.com.au/ (help out some Wanderers family - http://www.wswanderersfc.com.au/article/berthaly-family-appeal/13qgcsr1oi3pu1iag74moxorud) -  and make a bid on his signed, match worn boots!

Plus what better way to help celebrate his two year extension with WSW!!!

Spoke with Aspro's father over the weekend. 

He's very exicted with the way the squad are progressing this year & I expect he'll be with WSW for at least another couple of years before heading OS. 

 

He was never going anywhere, despite the interest from Melbourne Heartless

Glad he had his head screwed on, unlike another youth prospect that couldn't be patient or show a bit of loyalty/respect.

I mind that he got sent off, but it wasn't his foul that annoyed me.

 

It was the fact that that airhead of a referee didn't call the same infringement against Santa just minutes earlier.

 

**** me.

said exactly the same thing to those around us. he got a yellow straight after the Santa foul. it was a deserved yellow but the scenario shouldn't have occured as we should have been taking a pen instead. 

 

Its not right, but my thought was the ref was not keen on giving the pen as Santa was heading away from goal. So in that case it would have been seen as "soft" (read stupid from roly). Santa didn't help things by going down too easily once or twice earlier in the game too. Anyway. not Aspros best game but don't think much (if any) of the blame lays with him. Was let down badly by the DM's and fullbacks around him.

I'm a referee and I don't think the foul on Santa was a pen.

 

That probably means it was a pen though :rofl:

You're probably correct, it was just a **** day lol

Possible is right Gunner

 

He had a good game, but too many talking like those fox commentators who call for a player to be in the national team after they have a month of good games

 

He has come a long way this year, and looks like he's becoming the organiser at the back, but he still has deficiencies in his game if he's going to be spoken about as a potential Socceroo.

 

Possible ? Yes. Thats all it is right now .

 

Hopefully we've seen the last of Borda. Cornflakes coming on seemed to help Aspro

To be fair, I was calling him "future Socceroo" in 2015. Also last week. And this morning.

Exactly. Look back a few posts in this thread and you realise how new Aspro is. He needs to keep developing, but has the potential. First thing is that he needs to consolidate his position in our squad.

Aspro is proving to be very solid, but JFC he looks slow when he runs. I'd love to see some more speed in his legs.

Yep.

 

I too had him pinned as future Socceroo every early on in his Wanderers time. But now, seeing his pace, I think he'll be a squad Socceroo his whole career. I think that the coach will always be looking at faster CBs, but Aspro's calmness and steadiness will mean he will always be there or thereabouts.

I don't see him as someone that's much slower than Spira and surely at his age he can work on some speed?

He -looks- slower. You'd need to be standing there during drills holding a stopwatch to know if he actually is slower. I've played with blokes who look off the pace from the sideline, but when you're with them on the pitch you don't notice at all. Aspro looks off the pace from the sideline, but he is so unbelievably ******* calm and self-assured. It's amazing from someone so young. He will go far, regardless of perceived pace based on this alone.

 

As for adding speed, sure he can work on it, but so can every other kid in the frame. I,m more than happy to be proved wrong on his speed, to be honest. I'd delight in having this post thrown back in my face in years to come, because I have so much time for the lad and I really want him to succeed.

he has made mistakes but has improved a lot, i could see him as a leader one day

 

this might be going too far but how could he be a worse captain than Dimas?

Sorry, Goat, gonna have to call you on that one. You've been Cpt. Negative on here for a while now, but you need to back this one up - what makes Dimas a bad captain?
