    Pirmin Schwegler

    Just watched his 55 minutes for Hannover on the weekend . Played as the deeper of 2 defensive mids in front of a back 3 . Good skills very comfortable on the ball some good hard tackles and moved the ball forward quickly . Maybe slowing down a bit at 32 got dispossessed a couple of times but with the drop down in level should be very solid for us .You never know how the Europeans will cope with summer football but I like the look of him .

    Yes was just making fun of him for blaming the penalty end when you can’t expect to win a shootout if you miss 4

    Got no problem with penalties at the home end looked good on tv and is a good reward for the home team . Kurtz should be more worried that he coached his players to miss 4 pens . His sideline antics every week were starting to wear thin , threatened the cameraman for filming the huddle was embarrassing.

    Squad Development 2019/20 Part 1

    Everything you say makes sense but.. if roy is an in cap striker and we can get 2 marquees of some quality then I’d probably take him . Having said that if he’s on 500k it makes the rest of the salary cap tricky . where are the quality Aussie players that Babel is keen to sign and how much will they cost ?
  6. Maybe Tsatsimas should focus on poor team performance over the last 3 seasons wth the smurfs on 55 wins and 22 for us . If we had been any good this season we would have a bankwest game next month . Personally I don’t give a **** if the smurfs play finals at parra but I do care about how easily they have beaten us for years now .One win in 16 is a ******* disgrace Tsatsimas .

    Kamau is too weak to be a right back, surely if we are manufacturing a right back Sotirio should be a much better option . Stronger faster and a better defender on low wages with loyalty salary cap exemptions. Hopefully Babels instincts are right but my instincts say otherwise .

    Vedran Janjetovic

    Interesting article interviewing Vedran in the guardian about penalty science https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/mar/18/penalties-football-goalkeepers-mariners-ben-kennedy But the best part is one of the comments by cuidad marron “Good read. I'd like to see Janjetovic apply some scientific thought to areas beyond the 6 yard box though, just quietly.”

    If BJ is one of our marquees next year we are in big trouble . There are no better players , he is supposed to be the better player and so far he has done SFA apart from get injured .

    Auf Wiedersehen Spotless

    Or maybe we were lucky against Adelaide and unlucky in a couple of the previous games . Babel’s pre game instructions “ don’t concede goals in last 15 mins “ .They are finally listening to you Markus

    Davidson is a good target probably the best left back in the comp quick and has a great engine works up and down the line for the full 90 mins . Looks like Perth’s back 3 suits his game . Compare him to tarek and we can see what is wrong with WSW recruitment . A fast 27 year old ex Socceroo that made it to the fringes of the premier league compared to a slow 31 year old just back from an ACL . Obviously there’s a lot of factors here and we don’t know what wages they are both on . As we already had a left back ( Raul ) maybe Tarek is just on backup wages as our defensive budget was blown on Risdon and Ziegler.
