  1. I think that is the game which not only first signalled WSW on field potential, but off field as well as it brought the team to the attention of potential supporters who were just sitting back waiting to see how the team would go before they would start attending. If I'm not mistaken, it was after this game that home games at Parramatta really started pumping!
  2. For me I will always remember that goal he scored in the semi against Brisbane to bring the score to 2-3. I remember turning to the family and saying we are going to win this!
  3. Didn't we also go through this with Troisi?
  4. Is there any chance or way Wanderers can get out of the deal with SOP and play next seasons home games at Penrith stadium for example. Yes its far for many fans but crowds can not be any worse than SOP? Is this possibility being at least looked at? Would something like a fan petition help?

    Gombau Sacked By Wanderers

    Carly Adno on FNR this morning said that she was at the Wanderers Awards Night and noticed that Gombau had little to no interaction with any players other than Carrusca and he wasn't even seated at the Chairman's table like Popa was other years. Seems like it had already been decided at that time.

    Gombau Sacked By Wanderers

    Whoever had final say on appointing Gombau should also be sacked. I'm no expert but even I saw that he was not a good fit for our club. We needed immediate results not a "long term project" hence what transpired.

    Squad Development 2017/18 Part 2

    Am I alone in thinking that going after young talent is the wrong thing to do when building a team to challenge for the title. A comp like the A League is nothing more than way to collect footage for a young player to show case when looking for a team OS. The moment a young player shows promise - they're off! We must be serious about our recruiting - open the cheque book, go after established players, be selective. Sydney FC's current team are not made up of promising up and coming talent but an eclectic mix of established and experienced talent put together by Arnie and his staff - that's the key. They did not stick to a particular pattern for example all Spanish imports or players from a team they had coached before (AUFC). Lets focus on winning a title as soon as we can and let other teams develop players for overseas. That's the way I see it.

    Wanderers Ban Active Support

    Great viewpoint from Michael Lynch on FNR especially about FFA trying to engage families. Go to around 25 minute mark.

    Pathetic Draw Against Perth

    The Reddy send off just highlighted Sotirio's lack of quality. A better player would have realised he had the keeper beat and then just have a tap in instead of going for the dive which resulted in a foul outside the box. Still, they persist with him!!!
  11. I would have preferred a 3-2 loss without the existence of VAR and us grumbling about unfair decisions like we have always done rather than what transpired on Friday. That's how much I hate VAR and think it's ruining the game.

    Squad Development 2017/18 Part 2

    Antonis to Victory, Vidosic to City, Burns to Wellington - WTF is our club doing? Where are our new signings? F...ck it - Im over this ****.
  13. With regards to supporting a team during the highs and lows, for me, you attend and support a team in a low when you know they are are doing everything they can to win a game but still are getting bad results for one reason or another like Season 3. We all stuck by the team that season but due to factors already discussed, it was a terrible season. This year, you can't give similar support when you know what you are watching is experimentation and part of a process for future seasons. You want to know that the coach is doing everything he can to win that particular game whether it be picking the best players available or using appropriate tactics. You go to a baker to buy bread not the dough!
  14. I feel sorry for season ticket holders because they have paid to watch a season of experiments and glorified training games. If the club is supporting this attitude of "its a process - be patient - the results will come next season" well then may they should discount the entry price for the rest of the games. I know its unrealistic but that's the way I feel! It's just when you pay to watch your team play, you want to see the best players out there with the appropriate instructions for the game.
  15. What I am saying is that, given his past coaching experience, Gombau is not a good fit for our club. Not that he is bad instead his style is more suited to a youth league or other developmental competition. Also, fans like you who stick through thick and thin probably would number around 5000, that's not enough to sustain a club. And, I'm actually a Generation X so maybe I'm getting impatient in my old age!
