    Last ANZ Derby Drawn

    I am loving the work Kamau has been putting in down the right since his move to the back four, but is he under instructions not to cross any balls into the area?
  2. Very impressive. Great view from my seats (Row 15 Upper Tier) though a little concerned about nose bleeds.. Somewhat disappointed after the build up, since we were only able to walk around the concourse and seating areas and look at a large empty space called the change rooms. Thought we might have gained at least a glimpse of how the other half lives. Kids thought the hot dogs passed the taste test with prices much cheaper than ANZ. Big winner on the day was Parramatta Leagues with membership applications. Roll on July 20 and Season 2019/20.

    Last ANZ Derby Drawn

    Not sure how Bridge could earn an "under par" rating considering the entire time he was on the field he kept running into space, calling for service only to see the ball go anywhere but to him. I am also delighted to note that, in the past two months, the "Elrich Out" brigade have been much less vocal.. I realise he is past his prime, but he bleeds for the team every game, so here is my suggestion.: sign him up as a back up for the two full back and, if need be, the CB positions. Oh, hang on! Wasn't that why he was signed this season and has ended up playing more minutes that probably any other player in the team. Welcome back RBB. We've missed you. Best atmosphere all season..

    Finals Hopes Extinguished

    I seem to recall a similar comment being made around this time last season.
  5. I would have thought a world class stadium for a city the size of Sydney, coupled with safety features which would avoid another Hillsborough would be two excellent reasons for building such a stadium.
  6. Two days before election day and the ever reliable, totally independent SMH releases a report which will embarrass the current government. Now, there's a surprise! Isn't this the same party which has given us our new stadium? Perhaps the critics would also have preferred this to have been another bandaid job.
  7. Missing my first home game of the season, but through my alternating tears and laughter from my sick bed, dare I hope for a little good news and hope for the future by asking for the result of the youth League Grand Final.
  8. I wonder if you would have the same confidence in the quality of your glasses had a Taggart or Bautheac goal been allowed to stand and the still frame from the VAR showed a foot as far ahead of the line as was Roly's.
  9. Elrich is going to be over the moon when he reads the comments on this and the "Wanderers vs Roar" threads. Two goals scored against us and he has not been blamed for either of them.
  10. I can't quote the FIFA rules as well as others in this forum, but my understanding was that offside related to any part of the body which could legally score a goal ie. head, foot, chest, Don't recall that it would be okay if the offside was only a mm or two. At how many mms does offside become actual offside? Can't help wondering what the comment would be had it been Taggart or Bautheac,rather than Roly who had scored!!
  11. I believe Mack is rather harsh on Elrich. He may not be the quickest but he works his heart out every week. I thought he played well last night. First half he was all alone on the left as Roly seemed to want to play as an extra No. 10. Consider the interplay between Kamau and Russell, yet on the left Roly was rarely near Elrich who still managed to put some decent balls into the box. Second half, with extra support from Fitzy, Elrich was again able to put a number of teasing crosses into the box. I'd even suggest that the statistics would show more good balls into the box came from the left than the right. He may well be past his prime, but as was pointed out last week, he was brought in as a back-up and found himself first being used as a CB and now starting every week. I'm more in keeping with the comment from Paul01 that he should have been subbed off later in the game as he tired.
  12. Whoever it was, it wasn't Russell, yet Mack wants to down Elrich for every attack along down our left side.
  13. Agreed. A much better effort with Fttzy in the wide role and Roly at No. 10. after BJH's departure. Still have to convince Kamau that it is better for the team if he beats one or two players and lays the ball off rather than trying to beat a few more and losing the ball in a tackle.

    Hard to disagree with anything you said except that I believe it rather harsh laying the blame for the first goal on Llorente. Unless I missed something the first goal came from a quick throw in down our the right side, which caught the entire team napping. That Llorente, our LB, was the only defender within a bull's roar of the action, surely raises questions about the entire defence.. Rather than Hamill giving Lorente an on field roasting, we might well be entitled to ask, "Where was Hamill et al?"

    Apart from those details, we are doing pretty well.
