  1. Hopefully having an attack this year that poses a threat may mean that we don’t need to rely on Lopar for us not to lose a game. I have always felt that teams attacked us more as they knew we offered nothing going the other way. We were never able to put scoreboard pressure on the team.
  2. Has anyone heard anything more about the draw being released for next season?
  3. They were both in Canada in 2013, so you never know. And both played at Toronto.
  4. Stick with a tried no tested NPL coach. That seems to be the quality of the team we will have next season.
  5. Just saw that Messi has a clause in his contract stating he can leave on a Free within 10 days of the Champions League Final. The idea of marquee, coach, owner is still alive.
  6. I must say that i agree Neverbloom. As much as i still love the club, i don't have the same excitement around game day, and i think this is down to a few things: Even before we left Parra for SOP, there were many people in the crowd who were there to chat and catch up instead of watching and being absorbed in the game The RBB. As great as everyone of those people are in creating the atmosphere, the impact has been slowly melting away. This was a huge reason for me becoming a member instead of just watching the team from afar Away fans - I used to love seeing the huge n
  7. What does this say? That the Wanderers weren't able to compete with a multimillion dollar contract over 2 years which will set Duke up for life? As sad as i am to see Duke go, i am not unhappy that we didn't pay overs to keep him. From the video that was shared by the club, hopefully we will see him back in Red and Black in a few years.
  8. Wasn’t sure where to put this, but I have looked at the results for the year against each opponent. Adelaide - 6/6pts win, win Victory - 6/6Pts win, win Sydney - 7/9pts win, win, draw Central Coast - 7/9pts win, win, draw Wellington - 3/9 loss, loss, win City - 1/6pts loss, draw Newcastle, 1/6pts loss, draw Brisbane - 1/9pts draw, loss, loss West Utd - 1/9Pts loss, draw, loss Perth - 0/9pts loss, loss, loss 26 of our 33 pts came against 4 clubs in 10 games, 2 of which were the bottom teams and 1 who was the champions. We
  9. Maybe our players are crap, but what do you expect when we play a system which seems foreign to them all. Our defence have players who don’t know where or how to defend. We have no midfield because the holding midfielders sit on top of the centre backs and out forward line comprises 3 guys that you could throw a blanket over. When our wingbacks do break, they have no support and no options. All this i think is down to poor recruitment and trying to play a system which tries to fit in our (so called) best players. JP should revert back to a 442 which players would have played a
  10. I know it has no chance, but this would be nice to see. I am sure Schwegler would love to collect the ball, look up and actually see 5 red & black shirts in front of him.
  11. Please stop with the 7 at the back. We wonder why we have no midfield and no attack. The wing backs pick up the ball and have 6 other players behind them. The looked so isolated. Would love to see 4 at the back and only 1 holding midfielder.
  12. Not sure about Babbel giving him a glowing reference. Duke above attributed his goal scoring form with the sacking of Babbel.
  13. If Sydney can have Ninkovic under the cap, then surely Duke can fit under ours. Unless Sydney have borrowed the Roosters sombrero...
  14. Compared to the previous weeks, i found that our 3 centre back played very centrally which meant that the 2 wing backs played back a lot more. We basically played 5 across the back. Then when the Brisbane strikers dropped back, instead of our centre backs pushing up to mark them, they let our holding midfielders drop back to pick them up. In other words, we had 7 players behind their front line. This allowed their midfield to run at us and all the time in the world. It also meant that when we broke, we had 3 players up that end of the field.
