Caught last mins and extra time.

I almost wanted Syria to win for their Hunger, Determination and Desperation that out weighed our own.

My objective opinion is that we are not worthy of a finals place.

This Aus team is bereft of anything remotely inspiring of my support.

looks like NRL and AFL have nothing to fear from Soccer in Australia for another generation or two yet
Why are you still a Tigers fan then...? :lol:
Yes CB, Tigers forever. We are perennial underdogs and thats my expectation.

The Soceroos have all the perks, chartered planes etc and they were mush.

one of the big issues in nrl is the use of the video replay.
what i loved about the aleague was its none use,i lovedthe way referees waved play on and got on with the game.
unfortunately, this afo a goal for brisbane was overruled by a stupid video replay.everone had the dirts with it apart from the jets.
rhe goal was disallowed as the attacker was marginally offside .
i hope the video thing is only a trial as it disrupts the flow of the game.the fact that i had brisbane for the draw is unimportant in the case.
i loathe the referral system.

VAR can only be used in four instances:

• Goal / no goal decisions
• Penalty / no penalty decisions
• Direct red cards (not 2nd yellow cards)
• Mistaken identity

Too much simulation in our game now so I don't think it's a bad thing that we have the VAR to help decide in those four instances.

No problems with VAR correcting a close offside decision if the replay is clear. If it's lineball then play on

Feel sorry for the Jets, losing Vargas so early in the season and decimating their squad and finals chances. They can get an injury replacement but he looked real quality and it would be hard to replace him with someone equal and get the fit so quickly.

Did you go to the game on Saturday?

I went to the Sydney derby. That was a good game. Shame Sydney didn't win.

The Jets have struggled in recent years so it would be nice to see them do well again. Will be a tough ask now but can see who Ernie lines up as a replacement

Yeah the Woy Woy Wizard Matty Simon nearly stole it away. FC's backline looks decidedly more brittle this year, Buijs had a very poor game by his standards. Redmayne's boots must be filled with concrete.

Yeah poor old Merrick was inconsolable in that interview. Their system relies heavily on Vargas so it is a devastating blow for them. Hopefully they can pick up a quality injury replacement.

It's a fair big change to lose your star GK and the most energetic player in the comp. Redmayne has never filled me with confidence, being in and out of mediocre sides all his career.

Our style changes without Grant. He could track back and put pressure on counter attacks where now we have a 34 year old experienced player who's better on the ball but a much slower player.

Buijs was very good against Melbourne but yeah was poor against WSW, but most of the team was poor in the first half. Second half was much better.

I think the Wizards time may be coming to an end. Hasn't scored a league goal in 18 months. Can't afford to have someone so wasteful on the bench in close games

Simon does a job. He gets in there late and gives the other team the irrits. They spend more time getting upset with him than worrying about the job at hand. I'd love to be paid to come on at the 80th, throw a few elbows, axe a few people and pick up a yellow.

We'll be right when Cizak is right to go. Might have been playing league two but he's still a step up from the A-League.

Grant is a huge loss just for his motor and ticker. I've always been a fan of Brosque but Grant went to a new level last year and was probably my favourite player for the year.

Hoping the Aussies can do our country proud and get an away draw or even a miraculous win

Still can't believe we don't have Berisha Besart in our squad since he became a naturalised Australian in January , out and out striker how can sneak a goal if chances come around

8.00 am for any fans interested

Pitch resembles a cow paddock

Luongo has had some good touches along with Irvine

We are going to get caught out defensively , we are real slow from the back

Cahill off the bench
