  1. That, combined with the fact fullbacks are generally underpaid in the world football market is why left fullbacks get picked up by Australian clubs. Having 5 visa spots to play with also helps.
  2. Gombau should have rotated the squad to ensure the youth players got game time. WSW fans would never scream about how rotating the side is stupid because you aren't using your strongest lineup. They would have been totally understanding about Gombau picking a midfield of Tokich, Grozos & Keanu Baccus with Lachlan Scott up front to Perth or Adelaide away. Even if we lost the game and thus made it harder to make the all important finals series.
  3. Locked for now. Please use the "New Manager" thread.
  4. Western Sydney Wanderers have appointed Markus Babbel, confirming the new manager at a press conference this afternoon. The former FC Luzern club manager will replace Josep Gombau, who was sacked by the club after finishing 7th in the 2017/18 A-League regular season. Markus Babbel, 45, is one of the most high profile coaching appointments in the history of the A-League, having played 51 times for the German National team, with a glittering playing career that included winning the Bundesliga and UEFA Cup with Bayern Munich, the FA Cup & UEFA Cup again with Liverpool and the 1996 European Championship with Germany. His coaching career took him to Stuttgart and then to Hertha Berlin, where he won the German 2nd Division title in 2010/11. His most recently appointment was at FC Luzern in Switzerland where he stablised the club back into the top half of the competition before leaving due mid-season after he decided to not renew his contract. Babbel spoke at the press conference about wanting a new challenge at the club, "It wasn't a difficult decision to come to the Wanderers, I am looking forward to the challenge". Tomi Juric was mentioned as having sold the club to Babbel, comparing Wanderers supported with the much quieter people of Switzerland. Babell will return to Europe for a brief holiday with his family, before returning to take on the role heading into the pre-season. View full article

  7. Could still do a job in the middle of the park.
  8. I hear he's going to make his new team colour's Red, Gold & Green. Hmm. Are they trying to get another part-owner?
  9. During the "Roarcelona" era I believe their midfield trio was McKay, Paartalu and Mitch Nichols.
