He's gotta be our highest anti-scorer.

 

How he and Tomi (both with international caps) are missing those one on ones, I just don't know.[/quote

 

100%

Watching them play is an emotional roller coaster.

Haha it's a hard one, he could have had a hatrick tonight but his composure in front of goal is sorely lacking. In all fairness he probably scored the hardest of his three chances tonight especially considering the other two were 1v1.

 

He is definitely a frustrating player, lots of potential but he is sorely lacking in confidence & composure in key periods (composure crossing, composure giving a final pass & composure finishing off a move). You could see the frustration he released when he celebrated that goal & the winner for us but I think he has left his run too late. Hopefully he can put in some big performances in the ACL for us to get through to the next round.

I wouldn't start comparing Juric and Ruka.

 

Ruka is something different entirely lol

 

It's incredible that he puts the volley away. Like absolutely incredible. He misses two shots that were undeniably easier. As well as over running the ball multiple times at the 18 yard box just when you think he should be putting away a shot.

 

I used to always think he just lacks a little confidence. But slowly I begin to see his loose footing and lack of composure.

 

I still think he's a good player, he has other qualities that I like to see. But sweet Jesus he should of had a hat trick tonight.

every a-league game he has scored in we have won.

 

most valuable player we have on the roster and should be signed as our international marquee next season on a five year deal, leading in to him becoming our assistant coach under popa and the first wanderer to be cast in bronze outside the stadium.

 

dino ******* who?

Just read through this whole thread to make sure nobody else had called him this.

 

In the spirit of "Tomi-gun", and "Speeding Bulut"

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

I give you

 

"Bazookavstya". You're welcome.

 

 

 

I AM SO ******* CLEVER! EVERYONE LOOK AT MY CLEVERNESS!!

 

 

 

 

*I apologise. It's been a rough couple of months and I've had **** all sleep.

wasn't the greatest against Newcastle. But luckily enough Kalmar was even worse at finding him with the ball so ruka didn't really have a chance to be any worse.

 

I blame mark bridge for not playing.

You've produced some real quality today :golecapproves: good job

We need to switch his brain off when we send him out there. As soon as he has time to think he stuffs it up.

 

100%.

Still seems a bit to selfish on the ball or just doesn't see options in front of him and been very disappointed with him so far. Probably should have scored or assist in scoring way more and would like to see Sotorio get his wing spot next year and won't be surprised if he is the first to sign as Judas to Esfc.

Still a while to go till he has lost the 'Fukanshitsya' name.

 

He will beat 2 players, then do something that will make your brain explode.

 

Before his 1st goal against the Meow, he shot near post when he shoulda gone far post or played it across goal, wasn't even on target from 5 metres out. I'm guessing the neighbours heard me for that one.

He's not the one because he wasn't part of our champions league victory. Only place he might be going is Perth but I think he might want to re-sign with us next year

Apparently has a contract offer from ESFC & Perth, better chance for first team opportunities at Perth due to departures but ESFC will play ACL. Source: 442

Would laugh if he ends up at SFC, then cringe if he starts banging them in.

 

Can't see him tabling offers from anywhere overseas after such a poor season.
