The players function in isolation from the coach?

They are. Acting like they’ve been finishing for decades, rather than working towards a first title in 30 years

I wonder if he’ll take Kenny with him?

I rate Retre, but has to play as a central midfielder. I’d rather they left D’Arrigo to get regular games and pushed Teagues up the pecking order. They’ve already lost one excellent young midfielder (Devlin) because of a lack of opportunity.

I’m a Jets fan though, so by Nemesis’ logic shouldn’t care (about the future of Australian football) ????

You ridiculed Barbarousis! Constantly. You claimed he was no loss to Victory, citing his touch, decision making and poor finishing. I claimed he was a great pick up for SFC. Mind you, you also championed the hapless Athiu for at least 18 months. How is all of that looking???

Troisi? One poor career move after another, but I’ve never dismissed his ability. Anyway, the question was, would you rather he or Dobras?

Who’s more impartial, me who watches every have each week, or you, who watches one team and can’t name 5 players from any other team? I won’t expect a reply.

Ha ha!

It’s a real shame, but I think we’ve all come to the conclusion that Sydney fans are event goers. Their football is bl00dy fantastic.

The Cove create a great away atmosphere too

It says so much for their lack of depth.

That you couldn’t name 5 players from other clubs is not something to boast about . You play them 3 times a year….

Note I said the squad was weak. The first XI is reasonable, but compare it to last season. Was a team with Troisi, Honda, Antonis, Barbarousis better than one with Dobras, Basha, Nabbout , Kruse, Poulson? It’s clearly weaker. I know, as I watch all teams. It’s fun. Try it.

Whoever was behind the recruiting should be the first one out the door

Sacking Marco Kurz was no surprise, but Melbourne Victory themselves aren't blameless

The Victory “way”? Hack, grind, chop, moan?

Agree on Stajcic. He’s only doing a so so job but is a media darling

Given the players he’s surrounded by I’m not surprised he’s not happy. Kruse and Broxham aside, if he passes the ball he isn’t getting an accurate ball bacm

Agree. SFC have really got their act together

Kenny Athiu as first attacking sub each week suggests no depth. Dobras and Poulson are wastes of visa spots. The midfield is weak, lacking creativity, the defence unreliable.

Easily the weakest MV squad I have seen in a decade. Ola is brilliant, Kruse very good. Nabbout ? Half the impact of Barbarousis.

Agree. Totally premature. It’s a very poor (by MV standards) squad but there were signs of improvement recently.

VAR has already given MV a championship.

If you can’t see some teams are favoured the problem isn’t mine

Rich white people don’t know racism exists.

Agree, interpretation is an issue. Someone needs to point out to the referees that if the VAR room takes 3 minutes to decide it’s worth the on field ref having a look, and the on field ref spends another 2 minutes reviewing the monitor, it clearly wasn’t “clear and obvious” so you shouldn’t alter the original decision. But they do. Often.

Incteased controversy, slowed down the game, brought even more criticism of referees , since they now are making contentious decisions with the benefit of 20 replays. In real time it was forgivable

Was VAR a blessing or a curse in the Mariners' win over Victory?

See above. Nothing to do with “haterz”. When you are on the right side of pretty much every tight decision you lose perspective on how it is for the rest

Was VAR a blessing or a curse in the Mariners' win over Victory?

Try being a Jets fan and getting a decision. There is a hierarchy of doubt. At the top is Sydney and Victory (if in doubt give them the decision). Roar would be top 5.
At the bottom are Jets, CCM and the Nix

Was VAR a blessing or a curse in the Mariners' win over Victory?

We will never know, since “correct” is a matter of opinion, not a matter of fact. VAR isn’t a robot making exact calls, it is humans watching a replay and giving their opinions (given so many laws are grey, and therefore open to opinion).

Ask 10 refs to make a call on a decision and you’d get a 50-50 split

Stick to the topic
