  1. We weren't robbed, it's a case of once again being completely impotent in front of goal. On the plus side, we are creating chances, we just don't know how to put the ball in the back of the net. We should've wrapped the game up by halftime. Duke is not a striker. Yeboah is not a striker. They are wingers. Fast, agile, good set of lungs. Meier is too static and too old for the game we play and seems to be the striker we brought in when all other options fell through. Should've made a move for McLaren when he left the Roar. Our issue is capitalising on the chances we create as well as us dictating and controlling the game. These players need to step it up in a massive way. This is what they do for a living!
  2. Now Dave Lewis writing for the World Game is on the Babbel out bus. https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/axe-imminent-for-babbel-as-wanderers-patience-wears-thin Under-pressure Markus Babbel could find himself out the door at Western Sydney Wanderers as soon as this weekend, if the struggling club fall to a fourth successive A-League defeat at Wellington Phoenix. UPDATEDUPDATED 6 HOURS AGO BY DAVE LEWIS Patience with the German coach is near breaking point, amid speculation that concerned chairman Paul Lederer was poised to pull the trigger prior to Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle Jets. Lederer’s finger remains poised as he seeks answers to an alarming form slump which has seen the Wanderers fall from ladder leaders after four rounds to fourth spot after seven - and winless since a fortuitous 1-0 derby victory over Sydney FC five weeks ago. It’s understood Lederer gave Babbel a five-game ultimatum at the start of the campaign to convince him he was the right man to lead the club into a glowing new era at Bankwest Stadium. Doubts were implanted in Lederer’s mind after the former Liverpool defender’s indifferent first season at Wanderland - an eighth-placed finish yielding just six wins. Babbel, 47, looked to have found a panacea as the Wanderers jumped out of the blocks early this season, but familiar frailties and inconsistency have resurfaced once more - in tandem with post-match temper tantrums - to further erode his position. Stern criticism of his players, after the loss on the Hunter hasn’t endeared him to the squad, some of whom are already bamboozled by his methodology. With Lederer having invested heavily in a new training complex and approving Babbel bringing in the likes of former Bundesliga players Pirmin Schwegler, Nicolai Muller and Alexander Meier, the chairman was anticipating instant dividends. With so much invested, and so much on the line this season, Lederer isn’t willing to show too much more largesse. Former Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat - currently scouring the overseas markets for an opening - has been linked with the job should Babbel go. However, it’s likely to club would once again opt for an overseas coach. Western Sydney were contacted for comment.
  3. #Ange_is_a_Wanderer Lets bring him here . . . . One day. Hey imagine Ange's free flowing attacking football coupled with our Westie fighting spirit.
  4. From the Herald Sun by David Davutovic. MUSCAT TO WANDERERS? Former Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat will be one of the names considered by Western Sydney Wanderers should the coaching position become vacant. German Markus Babbel is under growing pressure after a third straight loss and no wins since the famous – and fortuitous – Round 3 Sydney derby win. The Wanderers remain fourth, and while they had chances to beat Newcastle Jets, they’ve been wildly inconsistent under ex Liverpool defender Babbel. Kevin Muscat acquired a decent trophy cabinet during his six seasons at Victory. Pic: Michael Klein. Matildas boss and former Wanderers assistant Ante Milicic is out of the running, as he will lead Macurthur Rams in their inaugural season of 2020-21. Muscat’s appointment would be too controversial for a host of A-League clubs, including Sydney FC and Adelaide United. But not the Wanderers. Muscat is currently in Europe watching games and searching for work. He has been flagged as an option for several Championship clubs, most recently interviewing for the job at his ex club Millwall.
  5. I totally get that the standard of refereeing in the A League is absolutely farcical, but ....... I also don't want to keep using that as an excuse every other week. It's really a simple solution.... our boys just need to be CLINICAL in front of goal. Our boys need to remain calm and be confident to play our own game. Everything else is secondary. Oh the ref is crap Oh the field is crap Oh the weather isn't ideal. No more of that. It's like we keep putting the bandage on before the injury so to speak. Create the chances and be CLINICAL That's all.
  6. I think Bosnich hit the nail on the head when he said, our players should be pressing higher up on the pitch. Suffocating the opposition defenders, getting in their midfielders faces and not giving them any time or space. This is key.
  7. Wanderers 2 - East Sydney Rats 0 Jurman and Schwegler to score for us. Man of the match: Schwegler. Treejack to be as effective as a flyscreen door on a submarine. He will be Schwegler's little biatch. Sydney is black and red! COYW!!!!!!!!!
  8. Looks like a cool cat crooner circa 1952. Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Babbel. Sold out shows in Las Vegas that year the 3 of them.
  9. There's an old, old tale out here in the west. The tale of old Ziggy's ghost. Old folks say there was once a dashing, young warrior called Ziggy who came from across the pond, he came to defend the west. As the tale goes, he made an appearance once or twice, then was never seen again. Some folks say on a rainy night at Bankwest you might just catch a glimpse of old Ziggy's ghost if you're lucky. Other folks say it's just a crazy man's fable. The ghost of old Ziggy.
  10. Wanderers 3 - Mariners 0 Jurman, Meier and Baccus on the scoresheet.
