I love NTS, he's probably been our most consistent player, so don't get me wrong here, but if he used his foot for that attempt on goal, it was sailing over the crossbar, out of the stadium and would have probably killed a bystander in the streets of Wellington haha!

 

Smart use of the head.

Definitely deserves a chance in the green & gold but WHEN is the almighty question, socceroos game is terrible timing. Been a great coup for the wanderers and if not the BEST CB in the league.

His awareness of where opposition players are and his anticipation of where the ball is going to be played is unbelievable, he reads the game so well and his aerial ability is second to none.

His understanding with Beauchamp makes them by far the best centre back combination in the league.

I can not fathom how he hasn't been included in the Socceroo squad?

"He is so tough he puts his head in places most players wouldn't  put their feet" This is how a wise old timer discribed him...Ha ha loved it.

I've watched him at all his clubs sydney, Perth & Jets and he was never at the class he is now. Sure players can make improvements but his has just lifted his game so high.

I'm wondering how much of it is down to his fitness. He's lost a stack of weight compared to pre-season (along with pretty much the entire squad).

When we signed this bloke I thought '...****'. Thought he was useless at newcastle, a liability at best.

 

Great to see him prove even his biggest doubters wrong, he is having a blinder. NEVER thought I'd see him in contention for the socceroos, and now it's looking more likely than not

I must have been the only person who rated him last season. I remember I put together my 2011/12 a-league team of the year the day of the WSW forum at Bankstown Sports and he was one of my starting CBs along with Bas van den Brink. When I heard we signed him I was ecstatic!

Same here. I rated him last year for Newcastle. I think he was the butt of a lot of jokes, but people didn't actually watch him play. He was a tower of strength for them at the back. I had a quite smile on my face when I heard he had signed for us.

Me too. I must say that he does the hoof much less regularly now then he did at the start of the season, and nowadays it's almost always justified.

Watching the replay of the semi against the Meow and the commentators mentioned NTS is the only non-goalie to have played every minute of every game in the 12/13 A-League season. What a fuqking legend!

 

If he doesn't get the nod for the All-Stars game then I demand a Royal Commission...

Surely this showed he's ready for a Socceroos call up.

If his performance last night doesn't prove he's ready then I don't know what will.
