  1. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    It seems an awfully long time since we last won a game. A reasonably good performance from the team tonight, I'm thrilled that I lived long enough to experience another win. Positives: We won A rare clean sheet, assisted by WSW not having a single shot on target more so than by our defending No yellow cards to the players at least. This is very rare for us Bruno and Arzani are looking to be a good combination, good game from both individually and in combination, they create space for each other like Bruno and Novillo also did. Good to see the hug for Paddy, no hugs for Wazza. I'm not surprised. Negatives: Still too many back passes and poor movement off the ball Should have scored more from the good chances that we had The crowd numbers looked poor tonight, the first time in years that FFA didn't schedule our game at AGP start time
  2. The road to the 2018 WC

    I agree that Ange is a better tournament coach than a qualification coach. he did qualify us with a fairly ordinary bunch of players and he did win us an Asian Cup.

    I hope we win, but really the men's team shot its wad in January, it's been unrelentingly detumescent since then
  4. The road to the 2018 WC

    I don't get the Ange hate here (and elsewhere). We've tried a sudden U-turn style wise and rolled over. It'll only get worse under Arnold, reactive defensive football with players that can't defend as a team and make too many individual errors. I'm expecting nothing from BvM and less from Arnold. Allegedly Bielsa was keen to take the job and the money wasn't an issue but FFA knocked him back because he can't speak English. Anyone would think that he was applying for an AFL coaching job.
  5. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Too much information! I'm not going either, Mrs G and I bought a 5 game season ticket, we've been to 3 so far, maybe we'll be bothered to go to the CCM game as we have other things to do in Melbourne that weekend. It's too painful to even think about going. At least, as jw says, we are unlikely to have to worry about a home final after Wazza's team weakening exercise. It's the first season I can remember when we'll finish a season weaker that we started
  6. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    They are probably equivalent although Jakobsen has better discipline. The big question though is how would Gulum go as a midfielder as Wazza is just as likely to play him there?
  7. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    It's tantamount to an admission that this season is over for our ambitions then, once again, save them for next season. This is a strategy that has never worked for us, we should be fighting hard for this season, much as the visit0rs are doing
  8. City Football Group (CFG) [Owner of Melbourne City]

    We've set the benchmark for consistent mediocrity, season after season.
  9. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    squad degradation Team style of play man management bench selection tactics and subs
  10. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    We've still weakened the squad. Bozanic is a squad player, I'd rank him below Kilkenny. We've lost Carusca and have no real number 10, obvious from the number of players we've tried there. We have a single number 9 who won't be match fit until after the final, and no backup, Marcin is no number 9. I rate Delbridge below Tongyik based on what he's shown so far, positioning is no better, distribution is worse, already red carded. Vidosic is hot and cold, more cold
  11. City vs WSW, 7;50 @AAMI Park. Must win game.

    Must win game 0-2 loss coming up. Wanderers have strengthened their squad, we've weakened ours
  12. The Run Home and Realistic Expectations

    We lost most of our attacking talent, apart from Arzani and an unfit and out of form Bruno
  13. the visit0rs are only 2 points behind us now and play CCM on Sunday
  14. Wazza - In the Departure Lounge?

    I agree with his observations
  15. Mixed feelings about this game Positives: We didn't lose Arzani played 90 minutes, our best attacking option by far Bruno played 90 minutes No red cards Wazza didn't bring on Delbridge for Bruno Negatives: 2 points lost, a draw doesn't help us much, but it wasn't a loss. We're likely to say goodbye to third position on Sunday Arzani already has a reputation for going to ground but this allows him to be hacked out of the game. If he's diving then book him but why ignore the regular fouls on him? Bobo, a regular diver, is protected. Bruno has poor touch, poor timing, positioning still off, why was he allowed to take a pen? He needs to be played though, we have no other strikers Defending as 4-4-2 but poor positioning, large gaps between the lines still allowing us to be easily penetrated. Our ball speed and movement off the ball in attacking transition is still far too slow
