    We’re basically becoming the Eels of the A-League. Huge fanbase, massive junior catchment, perpetually underperforming. The curse of Parramatta lives on. 


    That pretty much sums it up.

    The thing the Eels still have over us, and what Brad Arthur has brought back to them, is passion for the jersey and the west. They've been horribly unsuccessful under his reign, yet the management have believed in him. And despite their lack of success, (including a few wooden spoons) they have persisted with him as coach knowing that success is a long haul project. It takes time, and they have finally shown over the past season or so that it is worth waiting for, and takes time. Stability is the key, and it's something the Wanderers haven't had since that fateful day that Popa decided to ditch us. 

    Changing coaches season after season is a recipe for continued failure. New team. New style. Different attitudes. Different players - year after year. It just doesn't work.

    That is what Lederer and co should be looking at. It's staring them in the face. 

    I hate to say it, but the stability of ESFC, their stable player turnover, and their recent continued success is no coincidence.

    They are a team. We are a ******* rabble and it's embarrassing and humiliating. Shame on our club management!

    If we'd have had the success they have had over the years, we'd be an absolute powerhouse. Yet, we are currently an embarrassment considering our riches. At least the Mariners have an excuse for their continued failure.

    Didn't sound very likely to be staying in that interview. :(

    Which is a sad and an indictment on our management.

    Top goal scorer for us and is in the A-League top list, in a season where we have struggled to score goals and have played shite week after week. Yet, we can't throw a few extra $$ at him and then build a better team around him.

    He's not the most skillful player in the league, but he works his arse off and knows how to find the back of the net. He's a player that you would like to build a club around with players like we have had in the past, like Topor was for us, or Polenz, or even Haliti, Players who gave a ****, instead of buying pretty boys like Saba. 

    We need a decent, educated person that can recruit platers who actually give a damn about the club that is paying their decent wages.

    The management are the problem. More so than the cattle or even the coach. They sign off on the recruitment decisions Etc etc. 

    Which was exactly my point. 

    Never mind, we've scored two goals so management are vindicated and all players will be re-signed, once they've sorted the salary cap fiasco out. 

    In the meantime, ESFC have re-signed everyone. Joke of a club.


    And, I don't give a **** that we've just scored our third.

    The club, management, coaching staff and most of all, the players should all hang their heads in shame. 

    Thats another 3 lost members for 20/21. You are an atrocious, disgraceful excuse of a football team.

    That's sad but understandable.

    What annoys me the most is the bullshit social media posts that we are bombarded with each week, telling us they are going to do this and that, yet week after week we see the same old shite.

    It's clear that we don't have the cattle. If management can't see that, well, it's about time they went as well.

    Anyone else toying with not renewing next season? Apparently the owners think we will just keep on following the team irrespective of the apparent contempt they seem to have for the average punter. I’m a patient man but I’m feeling pretty fed up with this club right now

    I'm also patient. I will renew, and pour my somewhat limited dollars into the club again. I'll also pay for Jnr Wanderboys renewal again

    What annoys me most is that the club owners who have a few bucks more than me, won't spend it to try and make us both happy. 

    I'm really getting close to a "**** them" attitude, and just buying match day tickets when I feel like it. After Covid.

    It's not as if I won't be able to buy tickets.

    So Jnr didn't get a crap ref like Kurt Ams?

    Actually no, thank goodness. The ref was fantastic. Was firm with his decisions but really polite explaining them to the players. He commanded much respect amongst both teams. Lovely to see this in jnr football. I personally commended him after the game. IMO, refs deserve more respect and praise when they have done well. 

    When they haven't done well, it should just be let go. 

    Anyway, Jnr WB received a long pass from a CB a few metres inside the opposition half, took a touch in some free space, saw the keeper was off his line and chipped him from 30 metres out. Was a cracker!
