  1. I thought those of us who were at training the other day were supposed to spill the beans so no one would have exaggerated expectations. Oh well, I’ll mark that up to experience.
  2. Bang goes your credentials mit Der Babbel. Not revealing relevant & informed factual information until after the game also blows your cred on the forum too
  3. Echoes exactly what the likes of Meier, Georgievski & Duke have said. Quality post digger!
  4. If he hadn't saved those shots on goal he wouldn't be in the team of the weak
  5. Seem to recall a club from western Sydney winning the ACL with that kind of attitude. Course people were bitching about how they capitulated against Ulsan Hyundai in the rain and pyro back then too...
  6. Check out posts where some people in this thread are yammering about how players and Babbel should piss off because of yesterday's effort. And people making stupid comments about if player X wasn't around we'd be on 0 points. He played, we got the points...deal with it. That's the kind of inane BS that deserves a bollocking.
  7. That's because he knows what he's talking about
  8. Wow! And there may have been a great result in the Berlin derby too...
  9. First rule of watching sports tv in this country...don't watch 'Offsiders'. Second rule of watching sports tv in this country...don't watch 'Offsiders'. Third rule of watching sports tv in this country...don't watch 'Offsiders'. And just in case you're uncertain.. Fouth to 150th rule of watching sports tv in this country...don't watch 'Offsiders'.
  10. Thank Christ for the likes of Lloydy & FCB...lads, you bring the rational & intelligent commentary that sadly some of our more petulant, obtuse or hysterical comrades can't.
  11. Your first statement is utter BS. It doesn't matter who pays and who is paid; when keyboard warriors come out and make ridiculous statements without a shred of experience of what the players are doing, how they train, what they've been told to do, their physical and mental fitness etc, then it's perfectly appropriate to call out hyperbolic BS. The whole point of trying to appreciate and deconstruct what has transpired this season so far is to understand that we have a limited and biased perspective, and that is based on the fact that we aren't professional footballers, we aren't on the inside of the club or the team, we are spectators who will never experience what the players do. As for 'flat football', yeah, it wasn't goal a minute excitement. However football is not going to always be like a 15 minutes highlight package on TV or a quick game of FIFA at your mate's place. Doing enough not to lose can be a key result in and of itself, but especially when there is another 5 or so months to go in the season. And if you think that the effort against Brisbane was like the last few seasons, then you must not have watched more than 4 or 5 games max. I can cite plenty of games over the last three seasons where we played far worse than that and got hammered, and some where we played better and still didn't get any points. I see no need to 'forgive' the players because I don't go in for the hyperbolic flagellation game that some folk are doing. The team could've lost, the team could've won. The team could have played better, the team could've played worse. Bottom line is the team is undefeated after 4 games, top of the table. I'd rather believe in the players to sort themselves out and do what they can instead of superimposing on them my ill-informed and biased preconceptions of what they should do.
  12. Love seeing all these people attacking the players for today's performance. Yeah, would love to see some of you go out there and try and play top quality football in the humidity and heat that was felt by all of us sitting in the stands. Oh, and do that with a packed oppo defence, your key playmaker off injured in the early stages of the first half, a ref who seemed to have an inability to let the game flow, and some players who have been carrying niggles since the derby, are returning from injury, or have just arrived from Europe. Now was it what we wanted, expected? Of course not. There are issues. But FFS some of the hysteria and BS coming from so-called fans of WSW...pull your fooking heads in. How many of those who are bitching & moaning now, with 10 points in the locker and top of the table, would've been creaming their jeans to see a similar status after games like those we played against Newcastle when we lost 1-5? Jesus Christ...it wasn't until we got to the fourth game of that legendary first season that we scored our first win. When Popa left us Foxe couldn't buy a win and then Gombau came in and our season died further in the arse. We outplayed Brisbane twice last season and at times looked like we were blitzing them, yet still couldn't beat them (and brain fades cost us goals that this go round we're not letting in). You want to lecture the players on playing for the club, or Babbel for how he's coaching then have another look at the table, look at where we are at now, where we have been, and then give yourself an uppercut.
  13. Notice in the last 20 mins Müller got the ball into Meier, but Fußballgott was a bit lethargic in his finishing. Hopefully that’ll get better.
  14. Needs to be said that whilst we were pretty ordinary the heat/humidity out there must’ve been a bugger for Meier, we lost Schwegler after 15 mins or so, the ref was fücking woeful, & when Müller came in you could see the quality improve. Disappointed we didn’t do much better, but again last season this would’ve been a game we would’ve lost. We’ve dropped 2 points playing spotty football & it’s obvious there is still much development to come. Would we rather we lose 2-3 at home and play like geniuses after only four rounds of a long season, or grind out results & keep near or on top?
