    They always throw this on the draw document:

    So now we`ve had the bye and the momentum of the club has slowed considerably (check how many posts we`ve had on the forum),
    we now have 2 away games.
    Lets see how many we get at the next two home games because after that we have another month of not seeing our team.
    I`ve looked through the draw and unless i`m mistaken no other club is away from home for a month let alone being away from home twice for a month each.
    Who`s trying to kill the Mariner`s?...:popcorn:

    Not sure it’s as dramatic as trying to kill us but maybe more a case of being hard to balance the draw and us drawing the short straw due to our pretty horrible attendance in recent years. If you’re going to give a team a shit run you’re going to do it to the ones pulling 5k not 8-10.

    Very true, but why try in the first place?
    Surely any team that has a month between home games is going to lose all momentum with home fans.

    Yeah it definitely doesn’t help us and then we’ll end up with back to back games which can be a negative as well because it lets people feel like they can skip one without missing out much.
    The bye is a big issue, we get two by round 9 and play some teams twice before we see others once.

    NRL match Roosters v Sea Eagles day after our game at home to Melbourne City on the Friday evening.

    League game should be a sell out so that may hurt our crowds.

    With Zlatan being chased by Glory for a short term contract the NYE game will be his last game if they can nab him.

    This is clickbait

    It sounds like any short term deal hinges on him being released from his MLS contract. Otherwise the earliest he could be here is mid January and with a deal lined up at Granada in La Liga then the likelihood of him going to Perth is small.

    It’s all Lawrie and Beckham coming to Mariners all over again. Like Thurbs said, click bait.

    And how we haven’t seen the nix or victory at their low points either. Hopefully Perth doesn’t complete their turn around by our New Years game

    They played a decent game last night but IMO it was more that City were shithouse. None of their usual edge in attack, Maclaren barely saw the ball, plenty of unforced errors. Some would say that was Perth’s doing but they didn’t seem to be doing anything unusual or overly well to me so I put it more on City having a shit game. At the back Delbridge had a hand in all 3 goals including putting an off target shot in to his own goal. Perth looked better than they have recently but it could be a stretch to call it a return to form. Let’s see how they handle WSW (also pretty meh right now) and the Jets before they get back to us.

    I was only half watching it, but I did notice Delbridge and Bouzanis exchanging words after the final whistle.

    If Perth were out of form when we beat them - we barely hung on that game. That level or above and they'll roll us

    That game was a perfect example of the wrong mindset IMO. We just sat back and tried to ride it out instead of doing what worked earlier. We invited them in to the match

    They were kind of blaming each other from what I saw. Maybe Bouzanis could have done more but it was on Delbridge.

    Watching Sydney absolutely steamroll Brisbane makes me very worried.
