  1. That was disgusting, even before the sending off, what's Wazza doing? The only positives are Bart and the trumpet.
  2. MOTM RD 7 vs Brisbane

    Mauk, Fitzy, Bart, Brattan.
  3. Tim Cahill

    fair enough, I didn't understand why we got Ross in the first place.
  4. It was really quiet on TV, I think they had the mikes in front of WSW, you could hear them often enough. Bummed you couldn't hear the trumpet, was great last match.
  5. Spud of the Match - Rd 6 vs WSW

    Najjarine scored 2 goals for the Australian U19's, he could be a shoe in.
  6. MOTM RD 6 vs Western Sydney

    Bart La Rocca Jamieson Fitzy Malik if he didn't cost us the goal, otherwise he was pretty good which is a shame.
  7. Gap in the net, a part of it wasn't clipped on.
  8. I can't make it either..doubly lucky then, we've got this in the bag!
  9. We'll move back into 1st if we win, Gumbies first game in charge, could be a good time to play them as they get to grips with his tactics. Win 1-0.
  10. 8 players for young socceroos

    Najjarine scored again, so did Genreaou. I don't know if any other City players were involved, I can't find a team sheet. http://www.the-afc.com/u-19-championship-2018/australia-take-their-place-in-finals
  11. 8 Melbourne City players will be going to Vietnam to play for the young socceroos early November, it was meant to be hosted by us, but the government stopped it because they didn't want North Koreans on our shores. https://www.myfootball.com.au/news/young-socceroos-heading-hanoi
  12. 8 players for young socceroos

    Najarine scored in the first game, Arzani and Genreau also started. http://www.the-afc.com/u-19-championship-2018/australia-set-early-pace-in-group-j
  13. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    Agree, Wazza has shown he can organise a defence, I think it's about time to see some improvement in transitions and interplay in offense. How he goes about finding that balance will define us this season. I'm worried about Carusca's fitness to start, but I must say he made a difference last night and looked pretty fit, but did coming in late help and is that the best way to get the most out of him? There was improvement last night, Ross wasn't on his game though and every time we tried to break for the counter, a Sydney player would foul us without recompense. Maybe there was a plan, but we never saw it because the ref never went to his pocket? But overall, I'm starting to see things the way you do. I think Bruno getting injured threw a spanner in the works and Wazza is just concentrated on defence so far.
  14. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    I can't remember what preceded it, was Kamau caught upfield, or had they been passing it around the back for 5 minutes?

    Well it can be and it can be done differently as well, it depends. In a man marking tactic that's his job and nothing else usually, in zonal marking (which is what I think we try to play) it's situational and depends on how the team is meant to be organised. I have seen the exact opposite to what you say, or he might remain forward for the counter, with the DM slotting in, the whole defence can shift with the winger or midfielder slotting in on the far side (to allow more time to get organised and players not having to rush in), whilst his job is to cut off passing lanes or double team, there's all kind of ways a defence can position itself. Regardless, he won't stop the RB every time, especially at this level
  16. I wouldn't mind seeing the same team as last night when Bud came on for Cahill, with Jaimison to come in and Jacko for Brats, with Carrusca coming in late to do some damage.
  17. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    He probably stopped him 10 or more times, either making him pass backwards, or by putting in a couple of tackles. I thought he did well for a winger defensively, Zullo isn't a mug. That's how I saw it, I thought Muscat was worse personally.
  18. Nick Fitzgerald

    I reckon he has stepped it up again from last year, he seems to improve each season and this one's no different.
  19. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    My 2¢ I thought it was our best game yet, especially when Bud came on, his previous sub appearances have left a lot to be desired, but last night he was good. Kilkenny gave the ball away a lot and I don't think he put in a tackle at all, wasn't his best night. Kamau's best game, he defended well I thought and showed some nice close ball control at times, if he could sort out his final ball and shooting he would be in Europe. Shenkevald is real quality, best defender in the league. Mauk defended well, won the ball quite a few times and stopped Sydney playing through the middle. Didn't do much going forward, but it must have been Wazza's instructions you would think. Bratten had a good first half, he went missing in the second. Fitzy going forward was great, he could have gotten a goal and two assists on another night. I must say La Rocca has been great as well, I was concerned that he would be collecting cards like Pokémon, but he has been great in every game so far. I don't think McCormack had a good game, I hope he finds his mojo, or gets used to the players around him. Disappointing result really, Sydney didn't create much at all. Kamau when he got called offside and was one on one in the box was the wrong call, the refereeing was terrible, every time we went to break on a counter, someone would foul the player on the ball so they could reset their defence and not get caught out. I think Zullo was the only one to get a card for it and Carny should have had three, the referee was happy to give us yellow cards for similar fouls.
  20. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    Ross missed the tap in.
  21. Melissa Barbieri

    Lydia has an injury as well, not sure what though.
  22. Talking City Fan Channel

    Good episode, I really enjoy it.
  23. Pretty funny add though.
  24. As he has said, he likes the box to box role.
