  1. Im carefully wishing our current coach had Muscats record. In order he got 1st, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd.He made 3 grand finals, 2 of them he won. 49.7% win ratio (100 odd wins to about 50 losses). He might not be the best coach out there but our current coach has our club rocketing toward the bottom of the ladder at a pace that makes your eyes water.
  2. A 442 definitely wouldn’t go astray for us right now. We don’t have a 10 so we are borderline playing with a flat 4 since Muller is pushed so high all the time. Up front Duke and Meier/Yeboah. Muller and Adam at LM/RM. Baccus and Schwegler at CM. Back line DG, Jurman, Ziggy/Mcg, Kamau Saint Lopar between the sticks.
  3. How you get the ball there matters a lot. If your route to goal is whacking long balls from Jurman straight to Yeboah, you’ve got no hope. The attack basically never wins those, compound that with the fact that Kamau wouldn’t win an arm wrestle with a child and Yeboah has the first touch of a baby elephant. Baccus and Schwegler are only using one option, and that’s to slide the ball into wide channels. And that’s pointless too because Wilmering is mostly on his heals. And even if he is going forward, it’s going to end up being passed back to Jurman because he can’t beat his man. And most importantly, we don’t have a 10 in the side. Muller doesn’t know how to affect the play in the middle of the park and Grozos’ isn’t ready, if he will ever be. yeah you’re probably right about Kamau though. He got service at City and was all round meh
  4. I understand your point. I’m just not swallowing that any more. 4 seasons on analysing where we’ve been good in the build up, minor improvements here and there defending. It’s all for nought if the ball doesn’t end up in the other net. Ive said this before. A victory won’t change my perspective. Consistent ability to be clinical in front of goal, stringing consecutive wins together and not relying on VAR will change my perspective
  5. We’re now sitting in 6th with bottom of the table in striking distance of us this weekend. 2 more weeks of this and we will be proud placeholders of the newly created ‘11th place’.
  6. The Gombau one was weird. But it sounds like he wasn’t towing the club line. That makes it JTs problem for not making it perfectly clear what the deal was before he was signed. We all expected big things from Babbel. And he went and recruit half a bloody bundesliga team from varying divisions. It turns out there is no clear direction in this setup what so ever.
  7. Heh I had to look that up. Didn’t realise it was part of the recent change. Still, was pretty obvious that didn’t happen. Either way, the pen was garbage. Arms by his side and retracting further
  8. I agree it was a dumb penalty but why would it matter if it touches his chest first?
  9. #byebyebabs I could hack a loss if we showed improvement. But we are completely aimless. Then poor performances are compounded by looney formation shifts.
  10. It’s like inking a girls name on you. There’s always a chance she gives you the punt.
  11. I’m not worried about the reputation issue. We kept a manger for 5 years. We sacked one. Babs is now 18 months into his tenure and has accumulated 7 wins. There will be replacements. Muscat is the first option. It’s the right time if we can turn the season around. Finishing second or third will do more for our reputation than holding onto a bloke who can’t win games. Were currently 3 points off the bottom of the ladder. 2 more losses and that’s exactly where we are going to be. At that point I imagine most fence sitters will be all out of patience
  12. Genuine question. Why would you not want Babs out if you think he can’t fix this?
  13. It was his shoulder. Trying to say it was his arm is just flat out wrong. We’re not on 4 straight losses because of VAR decisions. We are on 4 straight losses because we don’t have the ability to score goals in volumes that nullify the bad decisions when they come along. If we were up 3-0 we’d be annoyed at the decision then move on. We focus on the issue because we aren’t capable of winning games. Other than giving the ball to Georgevski or hoofing it to the striker, I have no clue what our route to goal is. Not sure the players know either.
  14. Meier was an odd choice from the get go. We had an all action, go go go front 3/4 then we went and signed a 36 year old 6’6 giant who could be out paced by a glacier. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t in the #byebyebabs camp at this point.
  15. Still no squad thread so I’ll put it here. We still lack a 10, but we should have options in Jan. Turns out vidosic was back in Australia pretty much as soon as he left. Apparently the plan is to sign for Adelaide. Is he worth a 6 month deal if we can pinch him?
