    Squad Development 2019/20 Part 1

    We'll give him one more chance shall we? ... If it happens again though... he's done!! :-)

    Squad Development 2018/19 Part 2

    Thought his distribution and reading of the play was way better than mahazi and Bacchus's as well...

    Last ANZ Derby Drawn

    I reckon he has massive potential as a wing back... His fitness and workrate is outstanding and he can actually get around defenders when he does get forward (unlike Lloriente for example, who rarely if ever threatened to get around his man)... He is also working harder on his defence... I remember one tackle he made in the box, deep into the 2nd half after we turned over the ball cheaply while on the attack; the sky blue scum broke fwd; Kamau was 15 to 20 yards behind the play but sprinted back as the ball was played into the box; elrich lunged in to prevent a shot from about 10 yards out; the Smurf player cut back inside and prepared to fire home; Kamau arrived and saved the day... I for one appreciated it... It typified his approach to the game...
  4. The lack of urgency, intent, hunger and desperation that should be the hallmark of any wanderers team was sadly missing... And that goes for the coaching staff as well, sitting on their arses while watching misplaced passes, give away possession, and take wrong option after wrong option... That was an inept performance and given what a win would have meant, another completely deflating one... Sadly it's BAU it seems...
  5. Sweet Jesus this is difficult to watch...
  6. 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"...

    that sums it up nicely...

    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...
  11. 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...
  12. Hello darkness, my old friend, it's derby time again...
  13. 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...
  14. And that's saying something... cause those two were abysmal ...
