  1. No...we neither asked nor were told anything about the squad beyond what we already know
  2. Okay, back from tonight's Member Committee Meeting & here's some notes etc I took during the discussion. There ma be some items, issues that I have missed out on or misconstrued, however other forum members who were there can help flesh out or correct what I am posting: Red membership at Wanderland 2.0 is maxxed out...there are nominally no spaces left there Zeigler is still not an Aussie citizen but this is being worked on. All are happy with his attitude & work since last season's injury woes Target membership for 2019/20 is 22K. The club is looking at bringing back the seat resale system as we had at Pirtek, however the dynamics, system is yet to be worked out A new member's loyalty scheme is also being developed, with the uts & bolts to be worked on. Thinking is the point system was unfair With the return to Parra the club is working on developing a 'whole Parra' experience...more activities, engagement, banners etc around Parra on game day and at Wanderland 2.0 Public transport will again be integrated with membership and ticketing The march is hopefully going to return The club is in ongoing talks with the active supporter groups and these discussions have been described as good There are poles that will be/are located in front of the northern end active section of Wanderland 2.0 that may be used for Tifos etc Safe standing area is fully subscribed 1880 club for the rich end of memberships = $1190 & has a few unique bennies Next teir down in premium memberships is Gold Star ($790 full, $370 upgrade) Members will be receiving some unique merch/souveniers including a commemorative key for returning back to Parra & loyalty key rings for 3 or 5 year contnuous membership Quality of membership packs is being improved All member pack kit for foundation members will show such status 2/3rd of all tickets for Leeds game have been sold We get the exact kick oftime tomorrow & negotiations are ongoing for a TV broadcaster (I asked who & no comment) 14000 Wanderkids packs will be made available for grassroots distribution Female sizes in kits etc are limited due to demand, however they are trying to improve the availability time frame (last season an issue was sponsorship) This is the last cycle of the current Nike contract...it may or may not change, negotiations are ongoing We will have 2 entirely new shirts this season...we were able to have 3 last season as we recycled the basic away shirt from 2017/18. Possibility of safe pyro is still to be organised...club is talking with Foti firewroks Club is still working with both Parra LAC & Venues NSW re security. Some optimism from the suits but...well, yeah...we'll see Much more focus being placed on fan activation and entertainment around Wanderland 2.0 precinct planned First round will be October 12th and draw is still to be finalised. Don't be surprised to see and hear similar stuff as the upcoming members forum
  3. 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
  4. Saba had far more energy and more creativity, but far less control over his passes & his temper.
  5. 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.
  6. How did 'Heil Honey, I'm Home' miss out?
  7. From twitter "I want to score, but most of all I want, finally after two years, to win my last derby." - @wswanderersfc striker Oriol Riera 📺pscp.tv/w/1djxXpgRgdExZ
  8. 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.
  9. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Six fücking hours to get home from Newy thanks to Sydney trains.
  14. 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.
  15. Have it on good advice that Elrich, Janjetovic & a third player were seen grabbing a kebab at 2.30 this arvo from a Newcastle shop. Make of that what you will re motivation for a game kicking off 3 hours later...
  16. https://www.newsweek.com/poland-anti-semitism-newspaper-jews-how-spot-only-poland-racism-neo-nazi-1362406 Looks like 'Der Sturmer' might have an audience in 21st century Europe after all...the shades of Julius Streicher will be pleased.
  17. Yep. He'll be sitting back waiting for whoever is running things at Western Generics for the yell to come down to Tarneit. Waste of two seasons and will be yet another ex-Socceroo for the rest of his career.
  18. Brattan is the poor man's Nichols
  19. How those in the right wing aligned media really perceive 'free speech'...
