We've kept two clean sheets and been rock solid with Spira at the back.

 

MB has to fight for his place. I'm ok with that.

Jerrad Tyson posted this tweet earlier, great to see Meggsy at least heading to Brizzy!

Not impressed that he's not named, once again.

 

IMO the Wanderers and/or Popa need to address WHY our Club Captain hasn't been named 3 weeks in a row.

 

All Wanderers fans deserve to know.

I don't think there's a lot of people that is going to question what he says

I'm not really worried, I think since we are on winning ways, Spira needs the game time and Popa doesn't want to play with the squad too much.

I think he'll be back next week.

He'll definitely get gametime around ACL period when we have to rotate the squad tons. As Popa said, every player in the squad will have their chance to play... so, yeah.

I get the impression that he's a tough bugger, mentally it won't affect him too much

Spira was one of our best.

So post that in the Spira thread. 

 

Just letting everyone know who thinks the reason we lost tonight was because Beauchamp wasn't in that it wasnt the case at all.

Beauchamp didn't let ANY goals past him tonight.  :xnod: 

 

Neither did Marc Warren, should we sign him?

I have a gut feel that Ange might of called popa to get Spira game fit, for obvious reasons... Either that or... Maybe if he changes his last name Beauchamvic he'll be sweet lol.. jokes I have a gut feel about the first option though.   I was reading an article which I'm trying to find again, and they were comparing the stats between Spira, and Beauchamp, and Spira tops Michael in every aspect. Once I find it I'll post it up

There's a lot of comparison between Meggsy and Spira on here --> por que no Los dos?

 

Meggsy outperformed hyphen in the first three or four matches, why not drop NTS? Another option is to give Adam a rest and shift hyphen out to LB. There are more options than just swapping Spira and our fearless (on pitch) leader.

agreed, I'd leave Spira and move or swap NTS for Beauchamp... I didn't think D'Appuzo had a good first half..

I have thought this the last couple of weeks but maybe Popa wants the security of NTS's solid clearances etc alongside Spira's ability to pass. Don't know. On that, Popa clearly wanted a lot more possession against Victory and Roar. So maybe the plan all along was, warm up Spira vs Heart, have him there for the game plan vs Melbourne and Brisbane, and we'll see Beauchamp back next week?

That doesn't justify him being left out of the squad completely.

Maybe not, just trying to explain it rationally. Maybe he hasn't been training that well with a newborn in his house. :lol: Anyway, it's clear Popa likes to keep his cards close and he's not going to give it away. The way he has been able to change up the game plan this year has given me a bit of extra confidence in him - I wondered if we would be a bit one dimensional this season - we were a bit last year, I remember when he was swapping Dino and Gibbs around there didn't seem to be much difference in how we were approaching the game. But so far we've had a bit of the old with some tweaks for Juric and a bit of the new. I'm putting my trust in Popa for now.

Funny how no one complained when Elrich - the then vice captain and one of WSW's original signings - was left out of the squad and forced to play with the youth team, for no apparent reason. Yet now everyone is up in arms about Beauchamp. Despite, in my opinion, Elrich being far more versatile and a better option than the current incumbent left and right backs.

 

They call football managers 'the boss' for a reason. Popa has every right to leave out any player he feels for any reason he feels, without having to justify it to anyone. He is the boss. In fact he needs only to justify it to Lyall, if Lyall requests justification.

Elrich was very average. Beauchamp has been very consistent with no evident reason as to why he should be completely dropped. That's not to say Spiranovic hasn't been good, because he's been excellent IMO.
