    Team Honours: A-League Premiership Winner (2012/13), Asian Champions League Winner (2014).
    Highlight: Scored his first goal for the Wanderers, and the first goal in Perth for the Wanderers, against Perth Glory in Round 13, Season 2012/13 on 27/12/2013.
    Highlight: Scored the first ever Wanderers goal against the Central Coast Mariners in the A-league, in Round 23, Season 2012/13 on 2/03/2013.
    Highlight: Haliti was the only player for the Wanderers to play in every Asian Champions League 2013/14 match.
    Description: Attacking winger/forward who earned his break playing for Western Sydney clubs in the NSL, after coming to this country as an immigrant from Europe. Noted for repeatedly incurring yellow cards for removing his shirt after scoring. After being used sparingly in the first half of the 2012/13 season, he usurped Joey Gibbs as one of the two regular first team strikers, and his inspired performances against the Central Coast Mariners & Melbourne Heart went a long way to secured the Premiership in that season. The 2014/15 season however was not a success, with Haliti finding the back of the net on just one occasion, and he was allowed to leave to join his old club Newcastle in July 2015.

Maybe on for 'unpopular opinions' as Haliti is something of a popular figure I know......................

 

But went missing in action tonight, as he tends to do when he starts games.

Hasn't scored in a competitive match, since giving his lucky white boots to a young kid a few months ago.

Coincidence, I think not.

Speaking of shirts, can they hurry up and release an ACL shirt with a star so I can get his name on the back of it?

is it me or has haliti worked on dropping his shoulder and turning? seems to do it so well this season especially in the champs league.

 

apart from not scoring, Haliti has impressed me so far this season.

Labinot Haliti leads trio of Wanderers players seeking to leave Western Sydney: http://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/western-sydney-wanderers/labinot-haliti-leads-trio-of-wanderers-players-seeking-to-leave-western-sydney-20141126-11uloh.html

Apparently looking for more game time ... Hmmm ... I've always thought of him as a bit of a super-sub as he always seemed to have done his best work off the bench.

 

I'd be a bit sorry to see Labi go, but am also excited by the opportunity of signing someone new and talented ... Timmy Cahill, anyone?

I'd be sorry to see him go too but probably the right time if he moves in the January transfer window as there will be plenty of games in the New Year to give the likes of Sotirio a good run and also any incoming players. I wonder who the others are? Kubi? Trifiro? probably time for them to move on too but for different reasons !!

Usual guesswork from the media. No quotes from the player, his manager or the club, didn't name the other players and spent half the article interviewing a player from another team about their preferred position.

While Haliti has done his share of hard work, he really gets on my nerves, chooses wrong option 1 too many times.

Listen I love Haliti and will always be thankful for THAT goal in the rain at CCM, one of the goal we will always remember. But I also find him ***** frustrating, especially so when he starts games.

 

I would welcome him staying with us but at the same time if we wanted to leave then good luck to him, might be a good time for him to try something new and for WS.

How good would it be if Labi gets 15 goals this season. He has missed so many tap ins, hopefully with a bit of luck and form he can get on a roll.

We won't have the volume of games that require mass rotation with only 1 game a week. With this being the case, I can't see Labi getting any sort of run of games together that will allow him to hit some form. He is going to need to take the one or two opportunities he'll get presented during the season & force Popa to pick him over bridge, Castelen, Sotirio & Santa.

How this guy managed to avoid the cut is beyond me, he was WAY beyond the level required, very selfish at times too....

He's still under contract, that's how. Unless he has a stellar year he'll be gone by the end of next season I'd say. Might be the same for Santalab and Cole depending on their seasons.

What's the bet he betters last season figures of 1 goal in 30 odd games?

he'll score 3 goals,

 

unfortunately those goals will be every time WSW meet Newcastle next season.

Going to miss this guy too, he was synonymous for everything WSW stood for just like MP, but not as much as a central figure on the field or with the fans as Mateo :(

 

That goal he scored in front of us at Gosford won't be forgotten & just another one of those amazing moments so many former WSW have given us fans over the past few years!

I feel for Labi. 

His goal scoring abilities deserted him after he gave his season 13/14 pair of white boots, to a poor kid playing football with his mates, in a Parramatta park one day. The orange boots Nike gave him for 14/15 season just didn't work the same.

 

Thanks for the memories it's been an amazing journey i will never forget it #wsw #rbb pic.twitter.com/d9HzhxvV3j

Newcastle Jets winger Labinot Haliti's A-League season is over after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Haliti limped off the field with a knee injury during the first half of Newcastle's 1-0 loss to Sydney FC at Hunter Stadium on Saturday, with the injury later deemed to be more severe than first thought.


"Very disappointed for Labi, he'll be out indefinitely until the end of the season," coach Scott Miller confirmed on Wednesday.

Ouch!!

 

I saw him do it on the weekend & it wasn't like a normal ACL tear where it is innocuous. When he did it, his knee bent in a really awkward position & it didn't look good. Apparently he was going to play on but was taken off as a precaution otherwise it could have done something similar to the Bournemouth bloke.

 

Strange that when he was taken off he was taken to the dressing room where they said it was all clear. Bizzare news & gutted for him!
