A-league round 3 The Carl Robinson Cup! Newcastle V WSW should be interesting viewing considering what happen preseason, As well as Brisbane V Victory playing back to back matches, can the Victory learn anything from their loss last weekend?

Friday 8th January
Newcastle Jets V Western Sydney Wanderers, Hunter Stadium, 7:05pm ESDT

Saturday 9th January
Macarthur FC V Wellington Phoenix, Campbelltown Stadium, 5:05pm ESDT

Note: Brisbane Roar V Melbourne Victory, Postponed

Prediction: WSW 2-0 Nix 2-1

Enjoy what little football we have this weekend, better than none I guess.

Interested to see how robinson goes this year, pretty easy to hate this wanderers side
His success with newcastle last year was impressive but it was with a relatively established side and some new high quality transfers.
Not sure this wanderers side is that strong and any failure will be met harshly.

He was able to get alot out of the young kids that Merrick wasn't able to get, especially toward the end of the tenure. From his wording in press conferences it seems that this years he has been given license to blood the young and build what he wants at the club.

Ugarkovic, petratos, back 3, o'donovan, ibini, Ledleyy coming in is a strong core.
Don't see it at the wanderers this year.
Duke and jurman are big losses but I could be wrong there is some talent there.

Victory/roar clash has been postponed due to Brisbane going into lockdown.
One case and Brisbane go in to lockdown! Bloody hell that's extreme.. The paranoia in these Premiers is amazing. But not surprising how easy it is for them to just lock us all up at a wimp when we all comply so easily.

His eyes were closed I think thats why its a bad call as much as anything, can't prove he was doing anything other than rolling around, he is the type that would kick out but thats pretty speculative evidence.
