Early Saturday games can fu** off. Should be 6:30 or 7pm kick-off. Expecting a temp of 36 so it will still probably be 36 at kick-off.

6.45 kick off I'd be attending. But 4.30 means I cannot attend regardless of weather. Such a shit time for everyone

Another week, another loss.

Thank gawd there is no promotion and relegation - we'd be down quicker than a rat in a drain pipe.

The way Wanderers have played today and all year the only option is to sack BAbbel ASAP. No cohesion with the ball and going forward just guys like Yeboah running at defenders and losing the ball. Too much quality in the side to play such poor football.

And that's Babbel's fault players like that are sub-par? :p

5 losses in 6 for United, with that win being at home when we outplayed against the bottom side, with a resurgent Victory next week. Good times for the Reds.

Actually surprised he hasn’t been sacked yet!
You get a LOT more rope if you're a big name. If Babbel or Fowler were named Merrick they'd have been sacked weeks ago.

I know sacking coaches doesn't add legitimacy to the league, but the fact Babbel still has a job makes the A-League feel a little small time to me.

Those dropped points to Roar and Mariners earlier in the season may come back to haunt us. Nothing short of top 2 will be a dissapointment now with the run we're on.

And fu** Phoenix are great to watch.
