watching sydney v goldie

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 2:37 am

had a lot of fun watching this one.  faster than usual (for the a-league) passing game where the passes usually met their targets.  sydney played gc tough and looked mentally stronger, fitter and more disciplined than last year`s group.

how good is shane smeltz?  he has a sharpness and composure in front of goal that a lot of a-league players don`t.  probably the difference between the two sides.

z. carravella?  this guy was pouring coffees last year?  memo to a-league coaches, you need to start scouting the coffee shops of australia.  small, mobile, good ball control and short passing.  reminds me of another little guy who would be playing for brisbane if he didn`t have a broken leg.  get well mass.

i like mark bridge.  some of my fave a-league goals are his handiwork.  but he has never had the personality to impose himself on a game and take responsibility for his team for 90 minutes.  if it is a choice between starting bridge or danning – you`d choose danning every time.

where to now for s. musialak?  mcflynn won the battle for the starting spot in central, and rhyan grant looks a very capable understudy.  so disco stu is officially third string.  off to one of the new teams next year or stay at sfc, on the bench?  or does he cross his fingers and hope that grant gets injured too?
