    Not the best episode I've ever seen of a TV quiz show...that guy who was on first was definitely ripped off https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/1481769539847/mastermind-australia

    Last ANZ Derby Drawn

    Saba had far more energy and more creativity, but far less control over his passes & his temper.

    Last ANZ Derby Drawn

    Our midfield both defensively and on the attack was at time a fooking shambles for almost the entire first half. The lack of controlled possession, the miscommunication and miss-hit passes, the lack of energy and situational awareness was shocking. Time and time again the lads were caught napping or out-hustled by a smurf unit that looked far more fit, focused, passionate. Then, whilst they didn't rectify every mistake and every lackadaisical run or pass, they did lift enough to make the match far more even. We probably had the better of ESFC for maybe 5-10 mins in the first half and most of the second. We did look far more fragile than we needed to be, however if there was going to be a winner it probably should've been us. Biscuits obviously killed a sitter, and he is so frustrating because of his form (up and down like a whore's panties) . Vedran had his usual mixed bag of shite & amazeballs, and as has been said already Duke was always on the job. Aside from our win against the smurfs back in 2016/17 tonight was probably the best derby we've had at the Olympic Stadium. Now we have only one more t go then we can spend at least 2 more seasons laughing at those karnts in the east as they whinge and whine about being Alan Jones' buggered boys.

    Decided to go via train there & back...the run up was good...took about 3 hours. Run back required waiting at Broadmeadow for about 20 minutes, then an all stations train to Wyong where buses were on duty as there was track work between there & Gosford. Got to Gosford & no train south for 45 minutes. Then from there to Strathfield where, because someone got themselves killed at Granville there were no trains leaving on the western line. After an hour's diversion to Olympic Park & switching to another train it was an all stations to the Riff. Gotta love public transport.

    Wanderers Members Committee News

    Can't speak for other members of the committee who are here in the WSF, but I'm happy to receive DMs that I might then be able to raise when we have our next meeting. Has to be said that I don't believe we can act as advocates (for reasons I've outlined previously). Additionally, considering the desultory manner in which the committee is being engaged with by the suits, I'm not expecting too much from them even if advocacy was a role we had.
  10. Dunno about the relationship between theft and tax, but can definitely see an association between the former and oxygen in some individuals' cases...

    On the six hour run it took me to get home last night from Newy I happened to hear King Fat Head do a radio ad for a certain bunch of ̶a̶m̶b̶u̶l̶a̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶s̶e̶r̶s̶ compensation lawyers. Definitely an inverse relationship between his goal scoring capabilities & public speaking talent.

    Finals Hopes Extinguished

    I would still argue that Redmayne was a worse keeper in general, whereas Snakes is the one who makes the worst mistakes. Not going to defend him for the multiple fook ups this season, but you have to wonder how he would go if he had a better and more consistent group of backs in front of him. Or perhaps vice versa. When one considers the heroics of Ante in the club's first few seasons he was ably assisted by having some of the best defenders the A-league has ever seen in front of him. They lifted for him and perhaps he lifted with them. Come forward to now and when you have Hamill, Elrich, Llorente, Risdon, Russell etc forming your back 4, is it any wonder Snakes is going to make blunders? One thing for sure, he needs to be ditched if possible for next season.

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    Six fücking hours to get home from Newy thanks to Sydney trains.

    It's basic The team dominated for first 30 mins & then after huffing & puffing only had 1 goal to show for it Newy came out in the 2nd half & did what they had to do to get level. Then Vedran allows himself to be pushed into the goal with the pill in his useless fücking gloves, then looks around as if he's a spotlighted Roo (a sight so common this season he should be kicked to the curb the minute the whistle blows against Victory) The best Baccus is ours More defensive errors from guys who would struggle to get a start in any of our first 4 seasons teams, and are barely a step up from the likes of Golec & Mullen. Babbel has tried his best to polish a Richard the III he inherited from Gonebau, & whilst some of his signings have worked out the lead ballast in the squad is killing the club oh & a big thank you to the Little Hitlers of Newy's secco crew & their Sicherheitdienst comrades from NSW Police. They made sure that any dangerous practices like fans being active were kept under a tight lid.
