  1. it is tough to say this because he seems like he is a decent guy - but zeigler can't compete physically in our league anymore. injuries have robbed him of the agility you need to be able to change direction, body shape, turn, speed up, slow down etc. you can't defend if you can't move your feet quickly enough to shift position and stay with your man. he has been like this for pretty much the whole time he has been at the club and I really do question the wisdom of signing him in the first place because surely this would have been evident on tape. Last night was just the latest piece of evidenc
  2. defensively i totally agree they have been excellent. i am happy that CR has made the tough calls - leaving out georgievski & zeigler wouldn't have been easy to deal with behind the scenes but 100% the right calls.
  3. Some really good stuff in that second half when baccus & dorrans took control of the game. One big observation on our game overall is that our defenders & keeper don't have the skill level to play out from the back under pressure. That first half we could barely get the ball out of our defensive third and even at times in the second we looked a big chance to concede from a mistake. Sometimes the keeper just needs to wave everyone forward, play the percentages and smack it long. I try not to criticise refs too much but in these derbies you almost feel resigned to the reality t
  4. Also surreal moment of the evening - NSW police demanding that wanderers fans cover their faces.
  5. not quite the usual away day at newy but a good day out and wonderful to catch up with some of my wanderers family. On the match..... - muller is critical. he has the ability to find those little spaces to receive the ball and then has the technical ability to keep it. we were a completely different prospect to last week when we couldn't get it to stick at all. take him off and we were back to hit and hope in that last 15. as stringer said a couple of times to me at the game - too many athletes and not enough footballers in that last 15 minutes. - you could see it a bit last week too
  6. a couple of thoughts on what we saw (disclaimer: i missed parts of second half due to australia's rubbish internet) ...... if we are going to play this 352 that it looks like we are set on, we have some players mismatched to the system i think...... - cox is not a hold up the ball type guy. I saw a bit of him in the english lower leagues and he is a guy who likes to come deep to get the ball and operate between the lines - can't do that in this set up because troisi is in the way. so he ends up being the first pass out of defence instead and then trying to hold the ball up against bi
  7. I often think the 'commitment, passion, for the shirt' way of thinking is just lazy analysis but I don't think I have seen a more clear example of getting rolled by a more committed team than in that first half. They were on our touch every time and we did not have the skill or compusure to cope and in contrast we stood off them and let them dictate play. 2nd half was better but it was too little, too late. In a match where we started with two very inexperienced fullbacks, it was critical that experienced defenders stood up. Instead we got the opposite. Jurman not bothered and as I have b
  8. They are pressing and closing us down and we are not coping at all. Touch and compusure both absent.
  9. Did you view the original tackle as a straight red? It looked to me like a clear example of serious foul play - lunge, unecessary force and fair chance to injure opponent. Thoughts from you prydz & other refs paul? Unlimited?
  10. One thing that continues to drive me mental is zeigler's determination to sprint back to mark the invisible man in the 6 yard box. He did it again last night on the barbaroussis volley chance. He ran to mark nothing at the front post and allowed the only attacking player to be unmarked behind him. STOP ******* DOING THIS!!!!!!!!!
  11. On another matter..... How did that little smurf **** not get a straight red for his tackle that led to the DG red? Way worse than saba's from a couple of years ago.
  12. He is proving to be exactly what we have needed. Local manager who knows the league, knows how to organise a team and have his intensity rub off on players. He has fixed some tactical stuff that was holding us back under MB. We are creating chances and most of the silly mistakes leading to goals have dried up. I also like that he is a tracksuit manager out on the training pitch not looking down from an office. The bossi hit job on him is proving to be BS (as we suspected at the time). The last 2 games is the best we have looked since popa.
  13. jared gillett had a really good game in leeds v reading last night. let the game flow and no stand out mistakes. leeds fans praised him which is unusual. the complaint from the reading coach was that he played advantage too well and they would have preferred the free kicks - if that is the biggest complaint then I reckon you have had a good game.
