the lack of a contest

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 3:14 am

I have had this amazing ability recently to choose A-league matches to watch that whilst having some nice play, just have no tension to them whatsoever. A feeling that the winner was quite obvious.  Boys against men.

Last round`s Glory vs CCM.  The recent Vic vs Glory.  The last time SFC played NQ.  Vic vs GCU (the game when GCU`s first choice defenders weren`t available).  Newcastle making Vic look very poor.  Even GCU`s recent 1 – 0 over SFC seriously flattered SFC.  The difference between the sides (SFC sans Brosque) was staggering.

Wow, guess I have blocked whatever Brisbane games I saw out of my memory.  Probably for the best.

Yeah, yeah, we are a minor league.  Yeah, we have lots of improvements to make.  Improvements that are happening.  Slowly.

No, we cannot expect Cristiano Ronaldo, Barcelona type play.

But we can expect a team of professionals to go out there focused and ready to play, with a collectively understood game plan that will give them the best chance possible of getting points out of the game.

Some players, and their coaches, are not living up to their status as professionals.

    • i am hoping that a growing sense of professionalism (both in the playing ranks and the coaches) will lead to less one sided games.

      what are your current thoughts on ange?

      • Home games ended on a very positive note. It was as if Ange got what he needed to go – challenge poor refing (and it was terrible), acknowledge the crowd and at the end thanks the crowd. We appreciated it. When I get a chance I will post some footage I recorded on my nano.
