    Why can't we score?

    Perhaps I see the game differently, but what I see a lot of is our players trying to get into a better position rather than take the first open opportunity to shoot. Inevitably it leads to the opposition defence having more time to place pressure. We need the boys to go train with an under 10s team, and recapture that shoot f**rkin instinct, rather than Craig Foster's 64 touches and pass into the back of net theory.
  2. I agree they should continue something in his honor.
  3. Isn't Joe recognised as the figure head for Lambert Park and APIA?

    Honda Runs Over Wanderers

    I think we can't recruit the likes of a Honda, etc. or for that matter retain standouts because we have a cultural problem inside the club. Players and agents talk and I've always felt that after the club world cup (don't remember its name) and the player pay issue we've tarnished our reputation with players.

    Honda Runs Over Wanderers

    Right. So from the previous posts I conclude that our greatest problem is that a) at one end of the pitch we can't put the ball in the net and, b) at the other end of the pitch we can't keep the ball out of the net.

    Honda Runs Over Wanderers

    Maybe just my gut feeling, but from what I saw of last nights game, and previous games, this season has probably been written off as experimental. We're seeing a lot of squad rotation and we've not really locked in a starting first. Fundamentally, this shifts every game to be training under Babbel whom may have negotiated this to understand the league given he's 3 year contract. MB and JP are smiling when the camera pans to them, which suggests to me there's something we're not aware of. Thoughts?
  7. Ran into Mr Risdon on King St in Newtown today. Told him he did a great job last night, and he said he appreciated the support. We may not always get the result we think we deserve as a team, but it's important to sometimes let people know at an individual level they are valued. Collectively it achieves a lot. PS. I think given I'm 6ft 90kgs I may have scared the little guy a bit.

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 1

    Never going to happen in a million years.
  9. I haven't been to Mudgee in 20 years, but given I grew up in the Central West just assume that every town has a Royal Hotel. That's where I'd head.
  10. Personally I'm a huge fan of Joshua! He has the uncanny ability to make even the most mediocre defender look like a superstar. He also provides hope to thousands of children that they too can play in the A League.
  11. I don't have an opinion about your opinion about another persons opinion, but if someone has an opinion on my opinion to not have an opinion on your opinion then that's their opinion.
  12. Reakon it's the dodgey bunnings snag from that promo video. A couple of those and you leave all your hardware in the boot.
  13. Read in an article that Aussie Pat is out for another week.
  14. Curious question. Did Babbel and Kurtz ever cross paths in their playing careers?
