  1. And other teams tried to use it (WSW and MV) and were knocked back by shifting goalpost criteria that Gallop just made up on the spot.
  2. Tim Cahill rule doesn't exist. It was scrapped the year after they made it. Surprise surprise.
  3. Sotirio "injured" but ins/outs merely say "not selected"
  4. We should be looking for a no.1 goalkeeper. Vedran can be our no.2 for the next 3 years.

    West Melbourne: Season 2019/20

    well most of their fans will be Heart fans probably since City has pissed off whatever fans they had.

    West Melbourne: Season 2019/20

    He is quoted as saying "“I’m a hard worker who understands that the fans in the West of Melbourne want players who’ll give absolutely 100% for the shirt. I can’t wait to start doing that,” said Risdon," Fans? Shirt? When has he given 100% in the last 2 years? See ya. Such a disappointment. Tate to play the rest of the season regardless if Risdon is fit or not.

    Babbel Out?

    yeah that's how I keep interpreting the injury status news. Either he injures something else, or goes too hard too soon because he's eager to get back. Hence why no injury replacement. Think I speculated as such on ATB one week.
  12. We've been waiting for Jaush to have a break out year since 2014.

    Babbel Out?

    I agree with what you're saying and Babbel obviously has identified issues early on. The real question is, and its getting asked more and more now, is what has he done to address those deficiencies? Highlighting them is one thing. Fixing them is another. Saying "the players are crap I need new ones" is only half the answer because you have a whole season to do something and a whole preseason for that matter. Everything listed above is fixable via preseason and training. Agree also with the amount of points we've thrown away. But if the above list was fixed or addressed, they wouldn't have been thrown away. I'm not Babbel Out btw. I've gone on record (latest was on this week's ATB) that I want to see him recruit a backline because his recruits HAVE been good (injuries aside). But he has until rounds 6-8 to be top 3 next season. Its the #NoExcusesForRealThisTime season.

    Babbel Out?

    Babbel only ever said we were the worst team after the Fox round table and all the "experts" stated that we would be fighting at the bottom. So he said "sure, we're the worst team of the league, thats what you all said anyway" Unfortunately I hoped it would galvanise the squad to prove the "experts" wrong. Unfortunately they are right lol.

    Babbel Out?

    Gombau also came in saying he'll work with the youth and completely reneged on that promise. Whereas Babbel is doing the complete opposite (I understand many were forced upon him out of necessity). WSW are building an academy. The head coach will have a mandate to include youth in his plans so the club can get a ROI of the academy and youth players.

    Babbel Out?

    Unless you have a coach lined up to take over NOW in the background who can start signing players for next season and beyond, sacking Babbel now will only cause the exact same crap we've seen at the club for the past 2 years. Club isn't sacking him. The only way he'll leave is if he leaves on his own accord. But you'd think with all his talk of #mentality that he'll want to stay and rectify this terrible season. Deadwood will be gone and he'll recruit well. So far, majority of his recruitment HAS been good. he just needs to buy a good defence.
  21. Hard to say Honda is the benchmark when FFA and Fox are paying his wages.

    All Doom and Gloom? There's Hope.

    At Friday's game it was remarked to me "imagine if we played the ACL final here like they wanted?" No way we would have won that match in that cavern.

    All Doom and Gloom? There's Hope.

    oh for sure. Why would you give away home ground advantage withSFC having 2k fans in a corner to having 35k at ANZ (lol as if) and letting SFC have up to 15-20k there and close to a 50/50 split in support? Yet our away derby will be limited numbers at the SCG? Makes no sense.

    All Doom and Gloom? There's Hope.

    How can you have a deal year deal if the medium term plan of the A-League is 14-16 teams home and away season - so no 3rd game. Does that mean all our home derbies are at ANZ and not Parra? Would be hilarious if true. All you can do is laugh now.
