First game at Leichhardt for the season, so hopefully we start that off we’ll. I’m anticipating a superb and loud atmosphere because even with small crowds that’s been my experience (see the FFA Cup game against City).
I’d hope retre is fit, I prefer him in that right mid position over da silva. Also be interesting to see how we play if both le Fondre and Reza are up front, I feel we still need one of the forwards to provide runs out wide.
I don’t see any reason why we can’t continue in the rich vein of form we hit last week and extend our lead in the FFA’s brand new competition (invented to guarantee we win some silverware each season), the Complacency Cup.
The boys have looked good at training this week. A lot of the drills have involved leaving Matt Simon unmarked at the far post & giving Tom Hiariej time and space in midfield. Josh Brillante had been putting in a bit of overtime working hard on perfecting his under hit no look back pass as well.
What if these are new tactics from Corica? Complacency is known to be a killer of big teams. But what if, the team becomes so complacent, they constantly lose. The constant losing will become expected and the team gets complacent in expecting to lose, so they start to win.
