Corica and SydneyFC might be ****ting bricks. No doubt the mental scares from last years match would be running through their heads and they wouldn't want a repeat would they?

This is gonna be fun next week! We will be primed for this match. Can't wait!

Ola!!!

Chipping the keeper on that angle! ******* ACE!
Just on that goal..

I could never imagine an Aussie striker chipping the keeper like that on such an angle. Pure instinct and football smarts. And that first touch just mint!

That was a world class goal if ever I saw one.

Most A-league strikers would have shot at the keeper, try to pick out a team mate (even if there wasn’t one to pass to) or turn to open the angle and gets his shot blocked by the in coming defender.

Just shows the difference in class and development where everything Toivonen has learnt and experienced is pure instinct.

I envy for the day our youth development can produce a Toivonen.

I was a goal out with my prediction. I just thought the negativity was always going to play a part and so it was proven. Still a good season, but it went downhill when it became obvious Rudan was leaving.

Probably why we rested players against Perth once we found out City won 5-0.

It's almost Monday and the winner of this has to play in Perth on Friday, that is in less than 4 days and 23 hours time. Ridiculous.
