Well, we're back down in Victoria for Western away after losing there convincingly not that many weeks ago. This losing streak really needs to be broken and we can only do that by finally putting a football in a net at either end of a pitch.

I read an article where Rudan mentions this game as their opportunity to break out of a bad spell as well. A lot riding on this one and unfortunately we don’t perform well in these circumstances. They are very beatable.

We outplayed them tactically first game (though lucky to win). They outplayed us tactically second game.

Battle of the coaches this game.

Despite the three-nil loss I don’t expect any changes.

I liked the more central attack last week but it wasn't useful because of a lack of forward runs through the line and SFC narrowed quickly. Would like to see it done again but spread the wingers so at worst there's a channel to the byline inside the box.
I don't think WUTD will be as disciplined or drilled as SFC so should see more success.

uhhhhhh

Subs - pearce, fox (if available), djuric, oar, ALOU KUOL (give the man some minutes, please).

I think Western have the worst playing style in the league, but it generates results. We need to turn our chances into goals if we're going to even dream of winning this one.

I'd like to see the same line up and effort we brought against Sydney but perhaps different subs. WU have been playing a very negative game lately so I hope Staj is drilling them to be confident and take their chances in attack. Be prepared to have a shot from range.

No Aspro at all for WU, gee he made a wise move.

Him and Kye paired this year would have been sick.
Didn’t we try that last season? I think it was one or the other at least as CBs unless we committed early to a back 3. I’d be fine with those two along side a more experienced mentor but playing two young CBs in a back 4 is a big risk IMO

Aspro is 24 with 60 games and Rowles is nearing 50. Shouldnt need a big brother now.
Anyway its a moot statement.

I’m not saying they would be terrible, just that most successful back lines in the league tend to have at least one senior CB at the core of the back line and running the show. Aspro - Ziggy - Rowles would have been alright even if Ziggy isn’t a typical senior CB. Would have let us keep Kim in DM more.
