Poor coaching to sub Mauk and Halloran with 25 minutes to go, leaving zero experience on the pitch, and then just let Perth walk all over us and take all 3 points

Mauk was gassed and Halloran was trash
Halloran was our most dangerous player... & given our lack of experience, it was a strange decision to pull him off.

Agree with Mauk, but probably should have been Juric off for a double change.

If we don't add some class to our midfield, it's going to be a long season.

Also I don't agree Halloran was our most dangerous, that was Mauk as well.

When the Toure brothers came on they were very dangerous early, but they are like Crouches and their first instinct is to pass it to each other. After 10 minutes we couldn't win the ball so they faded out.

Both were easily our best

We took off 1 because he was lacking match fitness & we took off the other because.... it was a mistake.

We certainly need some creativity in the midfield, will be interested to see a what a fit Lopez can do too

He's more a defensive midfielder, when fit.

Really missing a #10, with Troisi walking out.

If we have Mauk, with Halloran & Goodwin, should be able to feed our forwards better.

He's a Spanish defensive mid, he's got plenty of creativity.

Add Goodwin as well and our midfield goes from a weakness to a strength.
