  1. Ha ha true, true... I just meant it was hard to get an idea of what the new gear really looked like from those initial pics... Imo it looked better on the players than what I expected from those first picks... Btw... I'd rather you didn't post pictures of me without asking permission first... Ha ha...
  2. Very underwhelming... Also, not a fan of showing a new jersey worn with casual gear... You want to see how it looks with the full kit...
  3. They're worse than hopeless (in terms of football)... Their Melbourne based news room constantly sprukes vfl related stories (watch for the number of 'life interest' stories which somehow feature afl angles), if they report football at all, it's short snippets at best, the hosts are completely disinterested, and replays are cut short (E.g. You see a pass, a player aiming to shoot, but not the actual goal, or 3 cracker goals are scored and you're luck to see 1 goal ... probably repeated twice)... how they justify providing radio coverage for league games when the games are also broadcast on commercial AM and FM stations... while other sports are crying out for coverage is beyond me... Best stop the rant and go lie down I guess ...
  4. Have you forgotten Star Wars round already?!? ....
  5. As long as he doesn't wear that outfit, he can do whatever he likes when he scores...
  6. So, a 'deep lying midfielder' records no shots on target and only creates ' one chance' for his team (whatever that means)... them stats aren't even close to being relevant to measuring performance in that role...
  7. We'll give him one more chance shall we? ... If it happens again though... he's done!! :-)
  8. Thought his distribution and reading of the play was way better than mahazi and Bacchus's as well...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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"...
