Victory looks really hungry, I'm worried for us (both for the plate and the toilet seat)

I've been saying for a long time that you cannot write off MV. Our club's problem is that we don't have their killer instinct. We fucked up in Thailand, and we fucked up in Perth, and the latter is the reason why we're even bothering to look at the remaining matches for MV and WU.

And I see it's 3-1 now. This the way we should play.

Absolutely crazy game.

I expect them to win the toilet seat and like you, I wouldn't put it past us to throw away the plate on Monday too.

We threw it away in Perth. It's just a question of whether it breaks on Monday.

Oh bs JW, cmon now. We're still in the driver's seat. We didn't throw it away.

If we have a smidgen of professionalism about us, we'd be preparing for a win on Monday irrespective of tonight's result. I honestly don't see all the fuss. If we don't win, we don't deserve it. Then we can blame PK and Glover all we want.

We can’t be surprised about Victory. Good coach, used the full cap, key positions with experience, all visas are part of the team. Seem to stand up in bigger games.

Unpredictable going forward, never you know who stands up and scores for them.

I think we did. If we'd won we would be Premiers. The bottom team who hadn't won for yonks and had 15 points for the season?

If we win, we WILL be premiers. That's the simplest fact of all.

Fuk yeah, Perth was a shit result but c'mon, let's get to the game on Monday and get behind the boys instead of writing your obituaries on here.

It was originally intended to be "funny", but everyone is so tense on here that it hasn't been taken that way. My apologies if I offended you, and anyone else.

So victory pumped Sydney to bare minimum finish second in the league. WU won't be able to overtake them on goal difference. The equation is on paper a simple task. 

Win on Monday evening and it's ours.

With the CCM win does this now mean that the Nux can’t get a home final anymore?

Yes believe that's it. They could move to 5th if WU beats Adelaide and then the Nix would have to beat us. But 4th is gone now purely on goal difference. Mariners just a cool 28 goals up on the Nix 😅

A few things from the games today:

1. Popovic to replace Arnold in the Socceroos.

2. Nick Montgomery has done a fine job this season.

3. Jason Cummings should be given a Socceroos guernsey. Hell JMac has done  sweet FA so we may as well try someone else.

Incorrect. No-one can take the plate off us.

If we dont win it, we'll have lost it and have no one to blame but ourselves.

We'll get it done tomorrow tho

I wish I had your confidence 😅

Fingers crossed it all works out

WU up 1-0 after 10.  Adelaide back level after 14 at 1-1.

should WU get up, if we don't win tomorrow then that's a 3rd place finish.  given where we stood before the Glory game, a 3rd place finish would be bitterly disappointing.

dont know if i have ever cheered so hard for Adelaide

Toper Stanley injured too - looks like a hammy.

A third-place finish would mean no AFC football next time around.

This would be the biggest understatement if it eventuate. Would be a massive fail of a season if we implode tomorrow night and end up 3rd.

Would suck for sure but we haven't beaten any of them, over 6 games, so probably where we belong (3rd) if we don't beat the Nix.

2-1 it's finished.

The team that finishes in 2nd place will be in the AFC Cup, which is to the ACL rather like the Europa League is to the UEFA Champions League.

The winner of the AFC Cup qualifies for the following ACL. 

Whoever ends up in the AFC Cup ought to win the thing.

So worst we finish is 2nd. Is that an AFC Cup spot or do we need to go through a playoff? 

As JW posted below 2nd goes direct into AFC Cup group stage. 1st goes direct into Asian Champions League group stage.

All this also means Nux have nothing to play for but pride. We still need to put them to the sword.

I would be pretty disgusted if Phoenix didn't want to end their League season and go into the "finals" on a high, and I fully expect them to come at us with everything they've got.

And pretty disgusted with us if we don't put them to the sword if the opportunity is there.

Primary motivation now is to stop Victory winning the league. That will be great for us, and it will really hurt them.

I disagree. Our motivation must be to be Premiers.
