  1. Agree with so much of the above. And finally PK actually influenced a result. Was brave to start Berenguer and we looked a completely different side the first 30 minutes, then he ran out of gas. Was great that he brought on Tilio and moved Leckie central. Glover played so much better, but was lucky. He completely missed a punch and it was only luck Adelaide didn't score. But Good and Nuno, seriously solid. Metcalfe worked and stretched them, but Griffiths change was also critical. I think he should start the granny over Gomulka. Cola was another great change. Overall PK has done what a decent coach should do and he needs his bench. Looking forward to this week.

  2. Personally I would be going with Griff over gomulka, tillio on the wing and Leckie central. FB looked to under cooked against Adelaide n historically he has taken a few games to build any form. I would also go Bos over Jamo, but that is never gonna happen.

  3. In between the hysterics, this forum offers intelligent criticisms and often lands on the truth. Far better than mainstream media or social media. For instance, the failings of PK and Glover this season have been rightly discussed. Also when things go well, like on the weekend when PK gets it right with tactics and subs, this is also reflected.

  5. I just finished work, 80th minute saw Western were up 3-1. Watched the remainder of the match!! I can't begin to put in words how much I love seeing a packed Aami park with victory fans watching their team blow a 1-0 aggregate lead 4-2. What a night! But wait, aren't you the bench mark of the competition?!? Hahahahaha

  6. OK, I have my tickets (four in fact) and havent missed a home game all season. Firstly, the ticket prices are way too facken high! After you've forked out for a membership, and with living cost high, covid impacts, yadda yadda yadda, its not priced for the everyday punter. Secondly, I'm pissed to see the league now offering discounts to get more numbers .... what about the die hard true fans, shouldn't they get some reward? Third, I'm even more pissed that Maccas are doing free family passes to the GF (via their app) if you spend $15 or more on food ... WTF? If the league was smart (which they aint), they would have priced this to sell out. With tickets so expensive, and with it being on FTA TV, now they have made a rod for their own back. Its an embarrassment that you can get 80k theatre goers to watch Barcelona play a warm up game, and they cant work out how to sell out a GF. Piss Poor

  7. I think anything over 20k will be an outstanding result to be honest, in the context of the crowds this season and across the board.

  8. AND HERE IT IS! BACK INTO THE BIG DANCE FOR THE THIRD YEAR RUNNING! A very winnable game, we just need to understand that we are not going to get a lot of chances to score as Nomad Fc's defence has been exceptional all year. My prediction: 1- nil winners Go you good things

  10. Tbf i generally agree with you with respect to attendances etc, although i do think its of a bit more interest being a grand final and getting the atmosphere that game deserves. All signs points to getting very close to 20k and i think that will be an amazing result for these two clubs, and hopefully give the league a bit of momentum into next season. And tbh, part of me is looking forward to the crowd being notably bigger than MV's 'semi' on Saturday just to rub the point in for their constant attendance bullshit. No one actually cares but if you're going to insist on it being so important fuck oath im going to give it to you when you're outdrawn comfortably by the two minnows in town haha

  13. I take it all back. This weekend is a catch up round for juniors and we don't have a game. We also cancelled our Saturday training session so added bonus. So the 2pm KO could be the greatest thing ever. Regarding the game itself. I'm super confident. Adelaide pushed us over there but never really looked like scoring. I feel we are getting back to some level of form, in particular our back 5 is looking solid. We just need Berenguer back, if he can play minutes in our win I'll feel alot more confident going into the granny. And before anyone arcs up about being over confident, fuck yeah, we got this. This is a 4:0 win.

  14. Other clubs: re sign coach after failed season and boring tactics MC Forum: smart decision, makes sense, good to have faith etc. MCFC: Re sign title winning coach MC Forum: Get rid of him, lost the dressing room, sack him.

  15. Just got home from the game. WU deserved to win. Luck was on their side but that is minor. The team did not show any ticker in the first half. JA analysed the one game plan and he instructed his players well. To me Leckie appeared injured or otherwise he is physically spent. Metcalfe was ball watching/flat footed and did not contribute much. Service to the forwards was appalling. And who thought that bombing the ball to Jmac who is about 1.7m next to Lecroix who towered over him was going to work. No plan B. No imagination. And that is down to PK. I hope that he gets an offer to coach in Europe so that the contract can be terminated and then for CFG to bring in a better coach. BTW my MOTM was Nuno Reis.

  16. No hysterics required. Outplayed and outcoached. Tonight all our team's and coach's shortcomings were brutally exposed. We were never in it. As easy as you like for WU who deserved to win.

  20. Disagree strongly with this. The last game we played against them from memory we might not of started off well but I remember we came home like the tide and were not lucky to win. Both teams are evenly balanced imo, the keys to success come down to the following: -The midfield (more specifically frenchy). If frenchy can offer us something more then he did on sunday, and not get nullified by kilkenny, its going to make our attack so much more diverse.It'll also stop us having to always overly on our wingers so much -Stopping connor paine: Lachie wales is still a pretty meh playing to me, but paine is the real danger. He's lightning quick and his service while still not perfect, has gotten much better. Whoever is marking him (I assume jamo) really needs to be all over him and not give him any time or space on the ball -Scoring first and early: We really need Jmac or one of our other wingers to pull their finger out and score early on. Western will look to do the same and then just sit back for the rest of the game. They are more then capable of defending a 1-0 lead as shown throughout most of this season so we really need to be sharp and score when we are given a great chance. THE WILDCARD: CARL JENKISON FORWARD RUNS: As we know are system relys on overlapping fullbacks and even though most teams pick up the jamo and leckie, nabbout and jenkinson don't seem to have that same synergy. Often nabbouts wing its him running at one, two defenders but the time jenkison comes forward and overlaps, more times then not he is wide open to deliver a cross into the box. If he can do one of those overlapping runs and deliver a peach of a ball in, thats our first goal right there. Its a very winnable game but yes, it's going to be tight!

  23. Tillo changed the game, great performance, and Leckie was absolutely massive today as well. Shoutout to Griffiths when he came on, felt like we regained control of the midfield. We really made use of our experience in ET, managed the game very well, while Adelaide lost it completely.

  29. I don’t care what he’s won or if we still win the grand final, any coach can win titles with this club and resources. This guy has no clue how to coach against decent opposition. Enough of “stick to process”. He lives of individual quality to save his ass. This team isn’t playing for him, dressing room is gone. Completely wasted the recruitment this season as well. PK out, he must be go.

  30. Just grabbed my tix. Pax at just over 18k. Hoping for 20k, but if not I feel like the atmosphere will be fucking huge regardless. Let's go boys!

  31. This is a serious issue that must be addressed if the league and clubs are to grow. I am of the belief that, for an equivalent seat, it should never be cheaper for a non-member to attend a match than the cost for a member. All these special offers are a kick in the guts for the paid-up member. The simple way, I think, would be for reserved-seat members to be entitled to book their membership seats for a home "finals match" as part of their membership, i.e. that there should be no additional charge.

  32. For me Tilio is far more effective off the bench and for that reason I'm starting Flo. Flo will also be better for the run, and might be a better weapon against a low WU block, which i expect they'll do from the start. The main selection dilemma for me is Griff v Gomulka. On form its Griff, but imo the slower, older Adelaide midfield was more suited to Griff's game, whereas a zippier counter attacking WU will be more up Gomulka's alley, in which case i'm opting for him.

  33. According to the stadium map on Ticketek there are still some seats available at the Southern End in Bay 16 (Active) and Bays 12, 13, and 21. Although the latter three bays are in the corners, Bay 13 is actually pretty good, and cheap. I've been there a couple of times, notably for the first Women's GF (Fishlock, Little etc.) and there's absolutely nothing wrong with the view at all. Level 3 West doesn't appear to be available yet, so unless there's a late surge in sales I think we're looking at a sub-20,000 crowd.

  34. Yes. Walk around the ground at HT, do a few tricks and ball juggling, sign a few autographs, pose for photos with the crowd, give away a few signed jerseys and balls etc. etc.. People would go to the GF just to see them and try and get a memento.

  35. My point is that in 50 odd years it's pretty rare to have a "derby" of sorts as a grand final.

  46. Love the thread, great idea @Jovan. Got a positive story to add. Got a call from Ryan on the Friday before the Wellington game. Said the club wanted to thank my partner and I for attending all home games this season and being long term members, and offered us an 'ultimate matchday experience'. We were chauffeured to and from AAMI, got free jerseys, had a stadium tour, and had seats behind Wellingtons bench (not the best view, but being pitch-side was cool). On the pitch up close for the trophy lifting too. Truly amazing. There's a video on social media if you want to watch us try, and fail, to act naturally with a camera following you the entire time.
