Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

He’s building a rubbish future where players that are way to old are given too much game time.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Yeah it was a weird, weird, decision.
We didn’t win because of our tactics, we won because of Liam Reddy’s penalty save and their red card. And only won 2-1, could have been a draw.
There is a reason wingers are hardly ever played as wingbacks:
They don’t know how to defend, how to position themselves and will get caught on the counter way too much. They have to run all over the pitch for 90mins, which is just too much to ask of Armiento and Ikonomidis

Bruno has been decent this season, had to be more creative but still got 9 in 19, 2 assists as well.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

It baffles me.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Yeah that’s been atrocious. Keogh was an ok signing but Garcia has started him too often.
But formations have not been good.
4-4-2 is dead unless you’re a top, top team.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

we did buy proper fullbacks: Ota and Geria, who is a Socceroo

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

He’s been decent this season despite Garcia’s tactics. Has 9 goals in 19 games without taking penalties.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

I’m expecting one of the best squads in the A-League to at least make finals.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Fornaroli been consistently good for a number of seasons.

And this is how good our “mid table” squad is:

Jason Geria, Darryl Lachman, Sebastian Langkamp, Kosuke Ota, Neil Kilkenny, Bruno Fornaroli, Diego Castro, D’agostino, Carlo Armiento, Chris Ikonomidis, Joel Chianese and Andy Keogh

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

one of the worst

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Geria is Socceroo and is very decent at right back. Bruno has been amazing, has a great partnership with Castro. Garcia has a great squad, should be doing very well.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

we have a great squad, even with fixtures should be doing a lot better

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

fixture scheduling has been an issue, i grant you that. still not good enough tho

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Squad is still very decent, should be at least top 4.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

maybe, but we still have on of the best squads in the league, should be getting top 4 no doubt.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

we then started struggling to break teams down, who knew how to beat our 4-4-2. Instead of changing it, Garcia stuck with it.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

If it doesn’t work, a manager needs to change it. Yet, with the exception of a few
matches, he hasn’t changed things up.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

Just remember who some of those old players are. Geria, a Socceroo, Fornaroli, goal machine, Ota is very good player and kilkenny has 7 assists this season. And we have heaps of talented young players as well. I understand if you don’t think we should be favourites for the A-League, but even so our squad should be doing a lot better

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

in terms of ability, we also have one of the best defences in the league.
And about the goalies, it is Reddy who is a lot more error-prone than Velaphi, and frankly worse, yet Garcia continues to play Reddy, which is another bad selection decision.

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

I have mentioned fixtures/scheduling

Why Richard Garcia needs to leave Perth Glory

*4-2-3-1, not 4-2-3-2.
