Round 21 - Sydney FC vs Adelaide - 1/3/19


#1

Another good test of where we are at, though against a team which is struggling for goals. Further, Adelaide have one CB on the books so if we can’t score here then we’re in serious trouble.


#2

I think it’s pretty much inevitable that we’ll fail to score, or at best jag another pen.


#3

Like when Brisbane had McKay playing centre back and we failed?


#4

Yup. And a nervous child in goals. And some other omissions. In what was already a rank side even with first choices available.


#5

They will sit deep. We will fail to break them down and jag it 1-0 with a dodgy pen or deflected free kick.


#6

This season’s narrative is way more depressing than the last two. I miss going into games knowing we will win 4-0.


#7

One significant change this Friday will be Marlon Brando coaching the reds.


#8

For now. I’m absolutely convinced we will play victory in the semi and beat them.


#9

We’re going to get arse blasted.


#10

As fun as it was it sometimes felt a bit weird not going into games without “I wonder how we will go”.


#11

look I just hope we play the same old 442 that has been working so well.


#12

Ding Ding Ding!


#13

Do this Adelaide even do arse blasting?


#14

Well if they going to start, they’ll start on Friday.


#15

dds has a hyperextended elbow, out for 2-3 weeks


#16

#17

Any thoughts on who will play Brosque’s role off the bench? I fear we may end up playing Austin in that role…


#18

Shit I forgot Brosquey was suspended. Having said that it’s tops when he enters full beast mode so it’s just the cost of doing business


#19

Expect probably same starting XI with Retre and Devlin on the bench for DDS and Brosque.

Really do want to see Ivanovic in for Brillante.


#20

I feel like it’ll be Retre or Caceres at RM. I don’t like either of those options to be honest
