Happy to say that these two games and the two games from yesterday win me $25 on a $1 free bet 4 legged multi. Pretty happy with that personally

Our weakest link is Leckie at the moment. He's obviously not terrible, but he does seem to make the most errors and worst decisions. His crossing is poor and he seems to be in the wrong position when we are making a break on his wing. If we can find someone to do his job better, I think the whole performance of the team will lift.

When it was obvious that Rogic was keeping a player occupied in the middle of the park, why didn't he shift out to a wing to unbalance Cameroon?
Nichols has gone back to Perth.

Cameroon are ranked below us in the world rankings and may not make the World Cup in 2018.
In terms of getting an indication of improvement, we need better performances against the top teams (Chile, Germany etc) for sure, but also need to beat teams like Cameroon.
So in terms of where we are in terms of overall progression, the result, and the way we were outmuscled was a worry.
We really seemed to struggle physically against Cameroon and at times I thought I was watching the Wrestling Channel.
We can talk about tactics, technique, fitness, formations all we like, but it was the Cameroon's physicality (including but not just down to the illegal stuff the ref ref let go) that really disrupted the game plan. We really had no answer.
The way Ryan plays in advanced position so much was picked up by Cameroon and exploited. It will be interesting what Ange does about that. Will we see a change of keeper?
Juric has to be consistent and put away the chances because at this level he won't get many chances.
I did wonder whether bringing Macca on rather than Troisi might gives us more goal scoring capability. Especially with the likes of Gersbach and Leckie getting balls into the box.
In terms of glass half full:
Good first 45 minutes. Pity about the 46th.
Gersbach looked good going forwards, though we still seem weakest on the left defensively.
Credit to Australia. That is twice we have equalised from 1-0 down although culpable again of conceding down the left. 
Sainsbury did well again.

I saw the highlights and there  was Roar's Dane Ingham at 17 trying to take on Mexico's best. Unfortunately he was skinned by Aquino for their second but what an experience  for the youngster.
Minor change to the above. I believe the young man turned 18 earlier in the month.

Even at 18, to be taking on some of the world's best is always a good thing. We'll be good to give him a go this season. Has a lot of potential. Up next is Cristiano Ronaldo, who is arguably the world's best, and Euro champs no less. A very good learning experience if there ever is one

I wonder if Aloisi is looking to take on the the 3-4-2-1 formation the roos are playing.
