You will, no worries.
Not meaning to jinx you, I think you will beat WUN.

I’m going to be stupid and tip a draw for the “Battle of the West” or what TF it’s called.

Western Suburbs

So, basically everybody is tipping the top 4 to all win.

Central Coast are a real Jekyll and Hyde team, so that game is a bit of a shot in the dark as to how that’s going to turn out. I don’t see Western Suburbs or City being seriously challenged in their games. Macarthur have been a rabble under Sterjovski, and Welly have won three times in 33 games at AAMI Park. 3 in 43 if you include other stadiums in that cesspit of a state.

Nice pass from Tulio to set that up. Cummings isn’t going to get an easier goal than that.

Fucking WUN.
And we could barely draw with them at home.

I like how Jamie Young has suddenly turned into a busted arse again now he’s finished playing against us.


Well, he is older than Methuselah.

(Yes, I realise our lad Vuka is a few months older.)

Looks like there’s been some shenanigans on the sidelines at half-time. WU’s pizza delivery man is not too happy with the Mariners bench for some reason.

50/50 tackle, probably given as a foul most of the time these days regardless of whether the ball is won or not, but FMD Risdon still needs a slap in the face. Imagine not playing the whistle and being pre-occupied with starting handbags with Silvera (Doumbia had clocked off too) while Beni is about to pull the trigger on the edge of your box.

Comical sequence, with Nkololo slipping and Young still failing to keep it out.

Apart from a nice kit, western offer nothing to the league.

People always like the Kappa kits.

WUN and Bulls are in the ACL, are they not?
Play-off, at least.

Wait, “combined points tally”?
Do the GF winners still get a play-off spot?
What about the cup winners?

What a stupid time, I’ve been sitting at home watching random crap on YouTube, I could have been watching the footer. My fault for not checking but still

I assume the early Friday games are because it’s a public holiday.
