Soft pen..... you do need to calm down.

Interestingly the kid he brought down pulled out of the Olyroos due to "injury". Looks like Verbeek is going to declare war as he said.

Totally dominant after the goal though.
It was a penalty by a mile, not sure what you were watching. Dumb challenge.

Jakobsen injured, he's the last player we can afford to lose.

Someone has taught Nikola and Halloran a thing or 2 in the off season. Playing at a much more consistent level.
those two and maria far above everyone else. troisi grew into the game too after a bad first 20.

dare i say we look a bit more dynamic without isaias

We are more unpredictable.

Everything went through Isa, and as good as he is every one knew that. We have more trust in the squad this year. Should probably have 5 goals tonight.

yeah it's no slight on his quality, but it just feels like there is more movement and variety from midfield. everyone can sit deep, can go box to box, quite a few players who can play multiple positions. do like we're taking more shots too.

Blackwood at the end needs to look up and Konstandopoulos has a tap-in. His first touch wasn’t perfect and he had time to look up and assess what better options he had. That’s where he needs to improve.

Liking the way this team looks. Hopefully nothing serious for Mileusnic, starting to put it all togther. Ospeth was good I thought apart from the shitty pen that McGree should've taken. Got a good run coming up too, 3 winnable home games.

And you could see why Tongyik is up to 5 clubs already, seriously stood out as woeful which is something I rarely notice when it comes to Football.

only other time he looked up he got smashed in the face in fairness

Could quite easily have had 6 or 7 without too much trouble. Tells you how bad they are, but also how well we are going.

Scary thing for everyone else is that we have room for improvement still.

Opseth does a lot of things right and was on the spot for a peach of a cross, but he needs to start scoring a few more. Central defender is needed in January and we still don't play the full 90. But the signs are good.

Good to string a few wins together and hopefully Jako and Nicola are both ok.
Anyone got any info on what’s happening with the Chinese player?

only disappointment for mine is that opseth didnt feast out against tongyik, who cannot be shocked he's on club 5 by the age of 22.
He was very good in the air - don’t remember the last striker we had that could regularly win headers and to advantage. That wasn’t even a strength of Djite’s.

I really like what Ospeth brings and he’s the perfect striker to compliment Halloran and Milusenic.
