I'm 13 and I write articles on The Roar for fun. I try to get up at least 1 article a week. I support Sydney FC and Manchester United.

I think it’s smart except for Keogh. I see what you mean about why he’s being rested, but there’s probably a slight injury or something, and now that Perth have secured the plate they will be looking to rest all their older players for finals.

I think what he means by “letting” is that Sydney handed it to Perth on a silver platter

Adam Le Fondre and Siem De Jong have both played well this season, but they haven’t been as effective as Mierzejewski and Bobo. From my point of view, I would rather that they never left.

Why the Glory need to sell Chris Ikonomidis

I completely agree – the Wanderers have plenty of talented attackers, and in the winter they need to focus a lot more on recruiting better defenders. That being said, the defenders all seem to be good individuals, they just aren’t gluing together as a team. Nice job on becoming a Roar Guru, by the way!

Western Sydney don't need Barbarouses, they need defenders

But will the FFA recognise it and act on it? Probably not. It won’t be until the FFA higher an at least half-ambitious person to be their leader. I would have loved to see what Craig Foster could have done…

Why the Alex Tobin Medal doesn’t work

I see where you’re going at, but bench De Jong and Ninkovic? I don’t get why everyone wants De Jong to leave; he’s only 30 and has a few good years left in him, and he’s shown how good he can be. Ninkovic also showed why – at 34 – he’s still a regular starter for Sydney FC. Maybe you didn’t see this, but he got man of the match which was deserved in my opinion.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

Well, it depends on what type of team you would want, but I think that Barberouses would be better for the Roar at the moment. That being said, I would like to see Bauthaec be put into a team like Melbourne Victory, as Barberouses is benefiting from the service, whereas Bauthaec has to do a lot of the service himself, so they are hard to compare.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

I feel like Le Fondre can regain his form tonight, and I’m really looking forward to seeing De Jong get back on the field with him, as I thought that they were racking up a good partnership. 60th minute: De Jong on for Reza. 70th minute: De Silva for Caceres. Ninkovic and Le Fondre stay on and we welcome back our best attacking four.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

I doubt that he will stay. There are talks of him moving to the MLS, which is a higher standard and way higher pay, and he hasn’t been very successful at the Roar.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

Being a Sydney FC fan, I never want to predict a 4-0 win, but it could be possible. If Ninkovic and Le Fondre look up to it, you never know what will happen. That being said, the likes of Dylan Wenzel-Halls and Bauthaec probably have a goal in them.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

I agree, and I feel like Corica might be secretly already planning next season. A team like Sydney FC should always be going for a title push, but they haven’t looked up to it this season, so something to do with formation or tactics has to change for next season if they want to rival Perth Glory.

Can Corica's men silence the Roar?

Great news for every Manchester United fan! The passion and class he shows make him the perfect man for the job.

I think that Corica should at least be going to the end of the season, as it is too late in the season to be thinking about new coaches with all the ACL games coming up as well. But if Sydney wins tonight, they will still be second on the ladder, so should Sydney really sack him?

Schenkeveld, Krishna and maybe a central midfielder should be the transfer targets.

Should Sydney FC sack Steve Corica?

Great article, and it is really well thought out, but here are a few points:
-Steve Corica has been very unlucky with injuries, as what would have been their star, Trent Buhagiar injured his ACL and Chris Zuvela was ruled out with a season-long injury to do with his knee. Siem De Jong has been out for more than half the season, and he was their marquee player. There would have been pace, and we saw from the FFA cup semi-final derby how well the system was working in the second half. It is likely that no Sydney FC coach will be able to compete with Graham Arnold’s success in the last two seasons largely because they never had to deal will any major injuries.
-As for the replacements, Buhagiar is a quick winger but Sydney are already looking at bringing in Krishna, so Steve Corica is probably already planning his next season with formation changes and a more direct aspect. In my opinion, Jacob Tratt could be a ball-playing centre back, but we haven’t seen enough of him but hopefully, with Ben Warland’s ACL injury we could see how good he really is in the next few weeks.
-Also, Sydney has not been playing a poor brand of football at all, there were just a few games that were letting them down.
-So, in conclusion, Steve Corica should not be sacked for sitting second on the table behind Perth Glory who haven’t had any major injuries to deal with and have been playing amazing football.

UPDATE: The game goes on! The pitch inspectors have deemed the surface playable!

UPDATE: Because of the heavy rain, a field inspection will take place prior to the game. The result will be made public before 3 pm Sydney time.

With who scoring?

I would keep Harrison but bench Berenguer, as I haven’t really seen Berenguer do anything good for his team this season. I remember in the first derby the commentators said that his style was like Ninkovic, but then he missed a penalty and I haven’t noticed him have an impact since, and Riley McGree would be a lot better. Caceres is a City reject, but when you think about it so is Fornaroli, so just because he was rejected by Warren Joyce doesn’t mean he’s bad, and he has been playing quite well in recent weeks. The problem with the key defenders coming back is they haven’t played, so they might not be match-fit and Ninkovic, Le Fondre and Reza will be looking to exploit that.

I agree it’s very hard to judge players performances when it was such an unusual game. I watched the first half, and to be honest it was very sloppy. Once Wellington was up 2-0, it was like they knew they were going to win and were missing chances.

Honestly, it’s cool! It’s unique and it will help the Matildas become easily identifiable over the world cup.

Where is the evidence of goalkeepers being poor? Like jbinnie said, a goalkeeper can’t be judged fairly due to the defence being in front of the keeper, so it is hard to judge a keeper.
