Newcastle Jets went from wanting two Sydney FC players for David Carney, to being prepared to take one, to ending up getting none. That is the off-field equivalent of a 5-0 flogging.
When you consider the Mitchell Pearce incident and try to decide what sort of punishment you believe it deserves, you’ve got to look at it two ways.
Surprise, surprise, the two coaches – Melbourne Victory’s Kevin Muscat and Sydney FC’s Graham Arnold – had very different takes on last night’s ‘Big Blue’.
The timing is perfect for the Australia Day clash between Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC, given Victory’s sparkling return to form last weekend and the largely negative way in which Sydney’s derby win was received.
Western Sydney are last-start losers and Sydney FC last-start winners, but the Wanderers are in better shape to win the latest edition of the Sydney derby, at Pirtek Stadium on Saturday.
Plenty of people think it’s madness that an A-League club wouldn’t want to take a player like Ronaldinho if it could raise the necessary cash to pay for him, but I see it from the point of view of the coaches.
