Looking forward to conceding more shit goals while looking like we have NFI what to do at the other end. Bring it on.

Yeah looking bad for the Glory, opponents sitting back and scoring on the counter and we don't look like scoring, need a big reaction or tactical change.

Will the Victory fans be kicked out by half time? Do people actually think this is a Derby? I know I couldn't give a toss about losing to Western United, losing to City hurts and that's just the way it's going to be, little darling.

Can we play the bye again?
Historically Perth have a good record against City especially with their backs against the wall. Wouldn’t surprise me if they pull an upset.

You said that last week vs the Victory.

We arent great this year.
Did I? I did predict a Perth win if thats what you mean. Only because I think on balance I thought and still think we have a much worse team than Perth.

I have more respect for Hitler than Fornaroli at this point of time, also the Tampon wearing Perf girls are weak as piss.

Delbridge is gash. City are terrible when JMac has an off day. We are conceding for fun at the moment and they couldn't even put 1 past us.

I know everyone is blaming Bouzanis for the first goal, and while he deserves some of the blame, most has to go to Delbridge. He is taller than Fornaroli and instead of jumping and heading the ball away, he opts to hold onto Fornaroli's arm to try to stop him from jumping. He didn't even look like he was trying to play the ball.

harsh mate lol
Not really. His arm certainly wasn’t in an unnatural position and the decision didn’t need to be reviewed. Compared to last weeks which should’ve been reviewed and overturned. Getting very, very lucky. And their commentators are highly unprofessional and ridiculously biased.
