  1. Post game interviewer should have asked Babbel: how much responsibility do you take as manager for these losses? Newcastle aren't a great team. They had a -8 goal difference before playing us tonight, they play a simple, straightforward, no frills counter attack style game, merrick knows his team's limitations and attempts to play to their strengths... Our back 4 aren't strong, but playing an expansive game makes them even more vulnerable, the first thing Babbel needs to do is focus on our defensive frailties, play a more compact defensive style of football, simplify roles and responsibilities, and demand more of each player defensively particularly when the opposition is in our final third... we simply should not be leaking goals EVERY SINGLE FRICKEN GAME!!! Babbel doesn't seem to have any idea how to stop the leakseven... And to blame the players for all of it is a heap of bullsh*te and a complete cop out on his part... Just look at the roster of most of the other teams in the league... There's no way we should be getting beat so easily... and a good manager should be able to fix that... Babble hasn't demonstrated he's a good manager for mine... not yet at least...

    A letter from the Chairman

    Okay, I'll give him 4.5 out of 10... And get him to recite the following 100 times: "words are cheap. It's results that matter"...

    Unhappy New Year

    Yep, and add to that the risk that the south western sydney mob have a successful first season and build the sort of momentum that we have withered away and we'll have cemented our position as 2nd tier...

    Unhappy New Year

    Pretty much gave up on Babbrl tonight... He did nothing to change the way we were playing when they went down to 10... He didn't change formation (E.g. We're down by 2, elrich was cooked, roly was useless on the wing, why not pull elrich, play 3 at the back, put roly into the middle where he's more at home and bring majok on early... Flood the midfield, use the width... Would it have worked? Who the hell knows... But it would have been better than doing absolutely nothing other than make two subs around the 78 minute mark... I could hear city's coach from across the other side of the ground... Never heard Babbel once... If I could have my Christmas wishes all over again I'd like to see mass changes: elrich, lloriente; roly (if he can't make our midfield he clearly does not cut it as a winger); and riera all gone... that would free up three foreign spots and if babbel is worth anything he should pull whatever rabbits out of his hat he can... then he might earn his keep... Yours in frustration...
  6. Fmd we are a hard team to watch... Lloriente got turned and burned for the 2nd goal. It was elrich who didn't cover the throw in for the first goal... Leaving aside the fact lloriente takes up a foreign spot, if I had to pick between Lloriente and elrich I wouldn't pick elrich... He's been terrible for us... Can't see how he seems to avoid criticism...
  7. Hello darkness, my old friend, it's derby time again...
  8. We're fricken cursed... Pretty much all over those mugs... Go one up and push the self destruct button... Ps Taking baumjohann off was a mistake for mine... Should have been Riera who was sacrificed...
  9. And that's saying something... cause those two were abysmal ...
  10. Well, don't we look good when Beath don't play...
  11. I do now... So, apologies... I took it as your view not some official response from ref central... They're explanation is still fatally flawed...
  12. Respectfully disagree (btw that's not the 2018 version of rule 11. I recall it's worded slightly differently but in similar terms. But let's go with your quoted version... The answer is the same regardless) The critical part you gloss over is whether Zullo's opportunity 'to play or challenge for the ball' is impacted. This additional requirement mandates that Sotirio has to interfere with Zullo's ability (a) to play the ball or (b) to challenge for the ball. If you accept this interpretation there can be no offence because Zullo has no realistic, practical or reasonable opportunity of doing either. Not when the ball was released. Not at the point of contact between the two of them. Not afterwards either. The decision was wrong in the football sense. And it was wrong in the technical sense.
  13. I'll say this for mahazi... With no pre season, he ran his guts out...
