A-League Round 12 Discussion - Bite sized edition


#1

Round 12 has basically been split up and moved around everywhere. There was a game on the 2nd and there will be one on the 16th, but there’s a game tonight and tomorrow so I guess it is worth having a separate discussion thread.

Wests vs Nux - Tuesday 8th - 7:50pm
Adelaide vs Victory - Wednesday 9th - 7:50pm


#2

I’m looking forward to tonight’s game. The Nux have been playing well, and looked great last game until the red card. Wests have improved, looked better against Victory but still have a lot of work to do. They’ll be desperate for a win in front of the 5k crowd that they’ll get.

I think Rudes will out-smart Babbel. I hope so anyway.


#3

Nux 3-0. RBB to blockade the car park so no one can leave until they read a pre prepared statement about beings fans with heart.


#4

Unfort i think WSW will get up. They’ll miss MANDI a bit.


#5

Nux look 15% better every week - watched most of their games out of respect for our future manager - so I reckon they will get the win. Mandi is a good player but they’ll cope. WSW are not looking good at all. Would love another derby this week, we would get 5.


#6

I’ll be curious to see how Yeboah goes if he gets off the bench.

Edit: interesting to see the RBB set up higher up. Trying to use the roof I imagine.


#7

Surprised they don’t just go to the away end where the 7 Fox microphones always are. :wink:


#8

Oh man Baumjohann is the only quality player Wests have.


#9

Went to their last two games where they’ve been set up under the roof. And they were loud when they got going considering their numbers


#10

Makes a lot more sense in such a cavernous stadium.


#11

Yeah it does sound decent actually. When you’ve got fifty blokes I guess you’ve got to make the most of things.


#12

Looked to me like he did that all himself taking a dive too. Twisted his leg in to imitate contact which I didn’t think was actually there.


#13

Now Kamau takes a dive…


#14

Hahaha overturned


#15

Overturned thankfully

Was never a penalty


#16

Good use of VAR. Kamau was already almost fully fallen over before there was any contact at all.


#17

How doesn’t he get booked though? Clear simulation.


#18

No yellow for the dive?


#19

Wtf is Slater on about? Never a pen.


#20

Yeah, I agree. He played for the pen, never would have got to the ball and was going down before there was any contact.
