I was writing up a possible 3-4-3 as you responded but I agree with what you’re saying. I didn’t get to watch the game but you’re never taking 3 points without scoring. Even scoring the 1 makes it a tough ask to hold on to the points.
We’ve scored 1 goal in 5 of our matches. 1 more against WSW gives us a draw. 1 more against Newcastle gives us a win. But we already knew about that issue.
It’s crazy how much things have changed in one off season. Even as we are this years team and efforts would be around 6 or 7 last season. This year so far the in the bottom two thirds of the table anything can happen.Nux haven't played like a spoon team this year either.
I thought Hatch was outstanding against Weston however, he wasn`t really tested defensively in that game and having not seen him since I wouldn`t know how big a motor he has for an A League start.Disgraceful. Start playing Hatch. Clisby is a liability defensively AND can't attack. Hatch will help with the width and skill in attack we desperately need.
He looked ok in Tassie but raw defensively. Ziggy was the boss of the defence that day.I thought Hatch was outstanding against Weston however, he wasn`t really tested defensively in that game and having not seen him since I wouldn`t know how big a motor he has for an A League start.
Any updates on his progress before we throw him in the deep end?
Yeah I think that's fair. I'm not down on Ziggy. I like him. He's just a bit slow and we need to make sure Duric or Kim is playing deep to play out.I get the angst about Clisby - but cannot agree about Ziggy - especially at CB.He mad a mistake against O'Donovan, He got to the ball first and tried to clear it. He just didn't realise that Roy was coming round to block the clearance.
Next game - we are coming off the bye and everyone should be fit - even Jair at least for 60 minutes.
I haven't seen him since - only the Weston and Tassie games. But Clisby is consistently beaten by his man, is slow to close down, slow to make decisions, misses easy passes and tracks back with the speed of Hoole. I can't see how Hatch could do much worse. And at the least, I'd bet good money he will pose far more of a problem to other teams in attack.He looked ok in Tassie but raw defensively. Ziggy was the boss of the defence that day.
