    Description: A journeyman winger with extensive experience in the Dutch leagues. Hersi started the pre-season slowly but with more match fitness and time to adjust to the league he become one of the key performers for the Wanderers in their inaugural season. His absence from the Wanderers squad is an immediate boost to the opposition. His second season was less of an impact in terms of goals scored, but he was still a key player in attack. He left the club after 2013/14 to join Perth Glory.

It may have taken a few games to adjust but wow! 2 impressive and solid performances in a row and what about that smile on his face when he was seeing all the fans post match? Brilliant.

He was very average 1st half

 

I agree, i think he felt he had to do a lot more rather than just play the simple pass. Stepped it up big time in the second 45 though

Hersi is fast becoming a cult hero. All the young fans (kids) and some of the adults seem to be taking to him.

Big ovation for him when he was replaced from the whole crowd. Still not 100% fit yet it seems, and I think he should look for Polenz making some good overlapping runs otherwise he is doing ok.

He's got that zip you need in a winger.not as fast as alot of the younger wingers out there but he has guile and smarts. Great little player

I love that he isnt at all ignorant or lazy as a player. Along with Mooy hes easily our best player, but will great pedigree and is such a level headed guy and doesnt shrug of any of his responsibilites on the pitch. He will always chase back an opposition winger on the counter.

 

Massive man crush on hersi :)

He is easily my favourite player.

 

I love the way he plays. I just hope he keeps getting better. I didn't think much of him at the beginning of the season.

 

One guy that did catch my eye at Edensor Park was Kubi, but he hasn't really followed that up.

Pre season, Hersi looked so bad. By the Parramatta friendly, my mate and i thought he was the dud buy of the season

Seems to be a common theme that most of us didn't think much of him early on but love him now. I wonder if it took him some time to adjust to how physical the game is here in Australia, especially for a little fella.

I actually thought he was pretty decent in our first game. He just copped some crap balls and passes from the other players. I was watching him mostly as he was on the side of the field I was sitting on in the first half. He actually chased very well in that game. He just didn't get the breaks go his way.

 

What I noticed in the second half though was that D'Appuzo was pretty shocking, and all Central Coast attacks came down our left side.

it's taken him a while because he hasn't played much football for about 2 years due to injury. He still wouldn't be 100% match fit, so the signs are very encouraging.

He no doubt was an el cheapo bargain buy as well. 

What you'll notice with Hersi, beside his skill, is he loves playing. He genuinely loves running out there. That comes from a guy given a 2nd chance.

He took a long time to get up to game speed. I think he was one of the people I thought would struggle to make the starting lineup based on the pre-season performances, but obviously with more match fitness he's done better.

He looks to just never stop putting in 110% effort out on the pitch; He's one of the players you just love to see skin the opposition down the wing, and play a great ball for the attack.

Anyone else tried to put a cheeky bet on Hersi as first goalscorer, am i missing something or is he just not there on bet365.

I was almost certain he'd see red before the game ended lol

Awesome effort again though down that flank by both he and Polenz.

Hersi is absolutely spent when he comes off. He sure gets through a mountain of work every game. Not one bad player tonight.
