Do you see what I see? Wayne Shroj

Probably not.  Quite often different people can watch the same game and see very different things.  Wayne Shroj could be the most polarising player in the A-league at the moment.

Is he a lazy git with some talent who doesn`t work hard enough for the team?

Or is he a football player with a bit of nous who adds something to the collective that his hardworking teammates cannot?

Everyone can agree that he doesn`t run around a lot.  Many consider him wasteful.  His fans would say that any player who tries to make those kinds of passes and plays is gonna make mistakes, but that this leads to a net positive.  The main point of disagreement seems to be whether his talent is enough to justify taking the place of a hard worker …

I am a fan.  I think he has had more positive impact on Perth this season that Sterjovski has.  Mile gets a pass mark with a lot of people because he runs around while being anonymous.  There are a handful of players in the league who can weight a pass as well as Shroj imho.  Most of my favourite Perth moments this season have involved Shroj.



  1. I think he is great. Pity the Roar can’t afford him.

  2. It`s amazing how polarising he is. You either rate him or don`t. And a lot of people don`t. Tony Tannous is a fan though.

    Saw the news that young Paartalu(?) is coming to the roar … getting time in the SPL doesn`t mean he will set the world on fire, but he might compete with Dodd for that holding midfield job.
