    Ref has literally dropped a bollock on this one.

    So many dodgy calls.

    Seems Wellington hate playing in Melbourne for some reason, despite being the closest city with at least one A-League side to the New Zealand capital.

    That was ****ing disappointing! :mad::mad:
    How we continually give away points is frustrating.

    Yes, how the Phoenix were not reduced to ten (or even nine) men was beyond me. Sick of these amateur refs like Gillett (x2), Shepard, Hams, Parsons, etc. They don't deserve to be officiating games at this level. Just why don't the FFA assign the FIFA-badges ones like Green, Breeze, O'Leary, Williams on a regular basis?

    Terrific game. Heart should've won, but didn't take advantage of their chances. Ref sucked.

    He's a quality player no doubt about that. Glad he's on our side.

    I think he's pops up for that important goal so many times. The team revolves around him.

    Absolutely. I think the emphasis goes firmly on the team aspect with the Phoenix. No real stars, but a bunch of guys who work hard for one another.

    They've been the big surprise of this season.
