    What better way to kick off the match day thread than this

    Huge fan of the angry panda ads they’ve ripped this from. And even bigger fan of Marvin. So love this initiative,

    I can think of plenty of games over the last few years I've been unenthusiastic about.
    But yeah, I've lost all hope and excitement for this season.
    It's easy to say that WSW are so low on the table that we should beat them - but they'd be saying the exact same thing, and we're lower - and while our attacks are just as bad, our defence is worse. So, the stats alone favour WSW; that is to say, we're going to be relying on the same thing we're relied on almost every win; a lucky penalty or two.
    WSW are on a better streak than us.
    And you're right about the crowd - 4k of those will be WSW supporters though

    Still going mind you - maybe this is where the turnaround begins?

    WU - Fail
    Roar - Fail
    WSW - ????
    I feel another fail coming, they are also on the bounce after Babbel’s sacking and will be fresh after a bye. Their enthusiasm alone will beat us. The last two games with 0 points has taken the wind out of the sails in what was meant to be a season defining section. It’s been defined, it’s called the spoon.

    Fulham and Capt are not exactly sunshine and rainbows tbf.

    I think we will win fairly easily.

    I was going to say only a poof wouldn't be there but realised that its an outdated and offensive term of phrase. So i hope everyone on the Coast of all creeds and colour come to watch us turn our season around.

    Yeah agree. Had my whinge about last match and what's been going wrong.
    Purged and onto this match. Every reason we can win.
    Id imagine a similar starting lineup and plan for similar subs.
    I just want to see smarter crossing, more width in attack and quicker pass and move through the middle. Too much to ask?

    They had decent chances in the first half but second was all ours except for that one unfortunate moment.

    I'll be there because I dont want Marvin throwing my stuff around. Really hope we can take the win and Staj has them fired up to play from the start.

    personally I always somehow get excited on game day no matter how depressing the last result was, part of the illness that is football I suppose.

    I usually ramble on about tactics and players etc, but I’m just at the point where I want a striker that scores like a striker

    They definitely had the better chances in the first half, Ziggy's block stopped a certain Inman goal in the first half. We could have easily been down at HT.

    If we can get an early goal we might be a chance however the longer it goes the more likely we will be to another late defensive lapse to break our hearts again.

    I'll be there, just worried about how fired up they will be. We haven't really lifted in the last two games when we should have been playing them like finals.

    The 18 from last weekend’s starting team and bench remains unchanged, while youngsters Dylan Ruiz-Diaz and Abraham Majok have both been named to the group by Stajcic.

    The occasion is set to be a big one with both teams aiming to return to winning ways, but Mark Birighitti will have a personal milestone to celebrate as he appears in his 100th Hyundai A-League match.

    Squad |
    1. Mark BIRIGHITTI (gk), 2.Ian Zygmunt GORDON, 3.Jack CLISBY, 4. Eunsun KIM, 6.Giancarlo GALLIFUOCO, 7. Milan ÐURIĆ, 8. Michael MCGLINCHEY, 9. Jordan MURRAY, 10. Tommy OAR, 11. Daniel DESILVA, 12. Adam PEARCE (gk), 14. Abraham MAJOK, 15. Kye ROWLES, 17. Samuel SILVERA, 18. Gianni STENSNESS, 19. Matthew SIMON, 26. Joshua NISBET, 27. Lewis MILLER, 29. Jair BRITTO, 30.

    Not sure if it’s pure luck but hats off to our strength and conditioning coaches this year, we’ve been pretty much injury free bar GG early in the FFA cup. Copping an injury to birraz or Milan and seeing them out for an extended period would really hurt us

    Anything happening to Birraz would be very problematic. Has been a change being relatively confident in our keeper. I honestly have no idea what is gonna happen in this game. I've stopped trying to tip what happens in our games a while ago. Every week that goes by, the more vital a win is. At home against a team around us on a hot day. Really need to capitalise. 6 points in our next 2, we can breath a sigh of relief. 4 points l am content with. 3 meh, 0 disastrous.

    Yes! Definitely worth a mention and reminder.
    Almost 0 long term/sustained injury.

    Early season fitness, conditioning and rotation in preseason has served well.

    Shame we haven’t used fully to our advantage during regular season.

    Ok I might upset a few people but it’s my opinion go back to a good old 442
    Glisby. Ziggy. Rowels. Miller

    Nisbet. Dujic. Kim. Wee Mac
