Was NTP injured vs Adelaide?

 

I believe he sat his first ever game!

 

Hopefully we see him on Sunday.

ATB pod and foxsports pod both said that initially he was rested but then heard during the match that infact he was injured

anyone catch shoot out last night bozza and bridges calling for him to go to Brazil

 

Interesting I thought.... Stating the obvious they said he has been the most consistent defender in league over 2 years and should at least be in squad

 

Wonder what ange thinks?

Well if Ange is looking for someone to bully Spaniards then he'd be pretty high up the list.

Not necessarily. Mobility is key considering the fluid movement of most national teams. Anyone with poor technique, distribution, and pace will quickly be found out. NTS lacks all three.

I'd be happy for any Wanderers player  to be picked by Ange for the World cup in Brazil, it could only benefit the player and the club for them to return with more knowledge than they would get from watching it on the couch at home.

Well to be fair, if he keeps booting the ball out with his NTS-style clearances... shouldn't be too bad.

 

What I am concerned about is when someone runs at him, he usually backs off and we've seen what happens when even mediocre strikers here in the A-League can do if he has to track back.

Has there been any word on the injury?

 

Medial ligament is all I've heard.

At this stage of the year I'm more concerned with contract talks. He must be re-signed.

 

But the injury came at the worst time for him. Smokey for the World Cup squad prior to this? Maybe not but, he's had a great year.

fingers crossed he won't need surgery and get's a proper off / pre season.

Yes, it didn't look good at all, actually.

Confirmed as Wanderer for another year!

 

Really wanted this, my fav player. Shame about Polenz - this softens the blow.

Judging by the shelter bench, it's an ACL game.

 

And the only ACL game I can recall NTS didn't playing was against Sanfreece, he was injured.

 

And IF it that is Da Puzzo as well on the left, he didn't play either.

Well deserved!

 

Except I hate the pairing of him and Spira. Purelh because I feel like they don't get along well. And I am basing this all on one post-game tiff.

You're right though, even though spira is better than megsy, that topa/megsy combo was so good!
