Well, that could have been the Mariners playing tonight instead of MV.
Comedy goal with an error by the keeper.
Start playing well and get most of the possession. Take it to half time and regroup.
But no, let two goals in at the end of the first half including an own goal by the skipper.
Take off a defender and play three at the back. Then let a few more in.
Then totally take the piss by bringing on DeSilva who misses a great chance.

Ex Mariners were amusing............DDS misses an open goal from 6yds to make it 7 and doesn't even hit the target. The muppet pundits said he hit the post......nup missed that by a foot.
Roux does his usual on the 6th goal....i.e leaves the player totally unmarked. What would a normal player do.....block the shot thats coming.....nup he turns away, like the ball might hurt him.

The only thing funnier was Broxham's own goal. Sydney's defending on Victory's only goal was pitiful as well.

Come on Perth.....you got this!

Redmayne put his arm up for offside. What more do you want?
Obviously the linesman forgot it was Sydney.

DDS missed a sitter earlier to go 7-1. Going to Sydney has done nothing for him, should have stayed for the minutes. Good luck loaning him at a price that covers his cost next season.

Edit - already mentioned above. Weird those posts weren’t showing up.

I suspect all is not well at MVC. Thomas has been benched for months..Broxham remains unsigned.
There's a few other that just suggest to me Muscat is going or half the team are, Popa style.

This is becoming a major story. A Sydney FC fan was harassed by police and security because he needed to take his daughter to a toilet which is accessed via a gate that's usually opened but wasn't tonight. The way football fans are policed at games compared to the AFL/NRL is a completely disgraceful double standard.

I think Corica was right.
If my lip reading skills are any good, I think he said "f**king Bullshit"
And then got a yellow card.

Refs got it right for me. I'm not convinced this still is at the exact moment of the kick - it's hard to tell being a blurry mess, but I think it's a split second before. And this is such a tight decision with players moving in opposite directions, that it probably takes less than 1/50s to go from onside to offside - even in this still, there's maybe an inch or two in it.

VAR would have to be 100% certain it's at the moment of contact in this one - I don't think you can claim that with certainty.

It's difficult because the VAR doesn't have technology - no hawkeye line, no digital line the commentators use, and they'd have to ignore the mowed lines I imagine (no guarantee they're perfectly parallel to the goal line). But, I think he was off.

Despite that, if the flag didn't go up, I'd say it wouldn't be clear enough to overrule.

I think Evans deserved this game - he's our best right now and had his best season yet, handling the game well too.

The Gallop directive also says do not re-referee the game. So remind me again why we have VAR. I'm happy to live and die by the ref's decision.

We get coaches in their first season - wooden spoon.

Sydney, on the other hand....

Also, f**k Redmayne's penalty bullshit
It's been mentioned elsewhere whether the freeze frame is from the moment the ball was kicked.
I thought it was a goal.

As for the penalty antics.

Somethings going to be have to done about that.

Redmayne will come out in a silly hat and party poppers next time.

But..............how bad was Santa's penalty......the f**kwit.

Helps when you inherit most of a very successful team.

They take them at the end Foxtel has extra cameras set up for. Both teams know in advance which end it will be.

I can’t believe the penalty antics worked. I would have thought it’s a distracting for the keeper as it is for the player. Fair outcome anyway, Sydney arguably hard done by with the disallowed goal and it’s a shame we had to have more controversy in a grand final. Not what we need to bring casuals back next season.
