Title: Can We Get a Win against the Antlers?
Post by: Chico Raul on April 12, 2017, 11:09:08 AM
Anyone think we can get a win?

Yes. We will be playing our best team so far in the ACL tonight, at home, with the expectation that the sacrifice in Perth is to have a purpose.

A win is a must if Roar want a slight chance of making it through.

Hopefully we can score a goal first and then go from there  ;D

I think we're a good chance. The players taking the field should be pretty fresh, focused and desperate to get a positive result.

I think he's going to keep flogging dead horses. The back 4 were were a horror show last week.. One change there (Papa)
The 6&8 were having one. One change there (TK) The front 3 were inexcusable... One change there. ( Thomas )
3 sets of fresh legs, 7 dead horses. We need about 5-6 changes to make a difference... Were a laughing stock at the moment.

If the team performs at its best across the part, yes. That means Holman making his passes and managing to actually control the ball, and Borello not playing like a decapitated, drug addled rooster.

So, no, not really.  But I live in hope.

No.

We lack the creativity to open them up regularly and the one or perhaps two chances that we do create will not be put away as we lack the firepower to deliver.

Also our defence is leaky as f**k against Asian opposition and Young's distribution is laughable at best. He'll gift the Antlers at least two clear cut chances.

Bet 365 has us at $4.75 Them at $1.70  and $3.80 for the draw... So the bookies saying no f#%king way.

I reckon Theo will be in goal, Papa and North in front, Kristensen marshalling the midfield, and Broich being creative up front. Just missing Pepper and Arana from the starting list has to boost our chances.
Arana has shown that he can have impact off the bench later on in the game.
If Pepper makes it onto the field for anything other than a critical injury replacement, I'll be very upset.

line up pretty much as i expected. lots of dead horses, and out of form players. Why not have Arana on the bench? No Ingham? Guess JA fancies himself as the Aussie coach when Ange goes... And had  a little hissy fit when Ingham defected to the Russians.
No North? Haha. No idea. Jade is one of our best. Surely he should be on the bench?

The lineup is pretty strong imo, no pepper is a plus as well.

No excuses this one . This is best 11 we have at the moment. Better win this one and score some goals . That 0-9 goal difference it's just pathetic.

Good finish from Jmac, lets keep it up!

I take it all back.

I'm happy to proven wrong.

Big win and it keeps our hopes of the next stage alive, great stuff. I guess the so called dead horses did alright tonight  8)

I was at the game as well, decent crowd as I thought it would be much less. To be fair I was surprised when Holman scored, he normally sky bounds them but it was a great hit in the end, great finish from Jmac as well. Antlers played very well though and we did well to hold onto our lead.

I was one of the other 10 at the game.
Lucky Harry?
As in Perth were lucky to beat us?  As in they took their chances and we didn't at the weekend?  It's all down to Macca in both games. And their star number 9 got dragged don't forget!
We started well in both halves. They came back at us later on in both halves and they had the one that trickled against the post in the first half. And a header that went wide.
They were better after they made the double substitution and the number six that came on also scored.
We made subs hoping to hang on and with half a mind on the next game. Daggers made a nuisance of himself. Brady looked overawed.
Their left back was awesome and won just about everything. The right back stuffed up for our goal. Swings and roundabouts.
It was a nervous 15 minutes at the end and Ange would be disappointed (as I was) that we held on and ran down the clock rather than dominate and finish stronger. But a win is a win!!
Last night we achieved a win in the ACL against a top Japanese outfit which is something Ange was not able to achieve with Roarcelona. I am glad to be one of the 10 (five and a half thousand)  witnesses.
For us this was a finals level game come early and an indication of how we might go.
I will watch the replay before my man of the match. But Papa was immense.
This business of not showing the replay on the big screen is really annoying. It really defeats the purpose of the screens. Might as well switch them off altogether and save the planet.
Pitch was not great.

The difference between Ange's team and JA's is that Anges team knew what to do with possession when that had it. Mate one time there Papa got walked around by their winger like he was a witches hat.. And they went very close to scoring. Aside from that Papa was good as he usually is. Their finishing was poor but they created plenty. Not taking anything away from Maccas goal it was a great finish. They had 19 shots to our 11. They had 12 corners to our 4, and they had 55% possession. There is a hint of luck there.

no doubt that they had more possession (though this was skewed by the final 10 of each half which kash absolutely dominated) and more shots but we had much more effective possession. shots on target 3 (bris) to 4 (kash) our crosses were much more dangerous (even if we had fewer) mostly in behind the defence. the biggest difference between the two sides was fitness,we ran out of legs by about the 70th minute which is worrying, where they started turning the screws (the same towards the end of the first half). this definitely has to do with the age of the squad and not really having the bench depth for players to come on and pick up the whole team. though i am growing on daggers in the 10 role he is starting to look like he belongs in the first team but still has a long way to go, oar was ineffective (possibly due to the long injury lay off), so was brady.

in years gone by we have had real threats to come off the bench, (henrique, borrello, petratos, yeboah, halloran) which allowed us to really ramp up the pressure towards the end of games. now we really dont have the depth and that will limit our chances in both the ACL and the finals.

JA has some work to do in the off season, must re-sign callettie, find a replacement for Macca (as he is more than likely headed OS), find a replacement for broich (though i think Oar is the plan there with broich playing bit parts), re-sign papa or replace him, replace pepper, arana, katebian, petratos lots of work for him to do.

If only we could get Ange to attend all our games. He certainly drew almost the best out of some of our aspiring players.
Incidentally I thought Oar and his speed did contribute.

I think this game also showed us that the team can most definitely compete with any team in the HAL and that we'll be a decent danger side in the finals coming up.

Post by: Paolo on April 13, 2017, 11:21:04 AM
I believe it also shows what our teams could do in an equal footing situation, I mean with some support with FFA with scheduling etc.
OK , we were at home this time, but it would mitigate 6-0 and 3-0 floggings, and give the teams a chance to progress further.... it also drives home the need for a deep squad for any team with ambitions ...

You would think now we are still alive in the ACL and barring a catastrophe of results on weekend, the FFA would schedule our home elimination final on the Friday/Saturday night to give us most amount of time to travel to Thailand for the game on 26th. There are no Reds or Broncos home games, so its open slather.

Nice result.  Didn't see the game due to other commitments.

I'm way out of town, so mid week games are nigh on impossible for me to get to, sadly.
