And why pick Mooy?


#5167

Haha. Excellent post tbh.


#5169

Friendly against Oman might be interesting tonight with the Asia Cup defence just a week away.


#5170

Hope we play some decent stuff and don’t cop any injuries. Squad is pretty thin with talent so can’t afford anyone getting hurt


#5171

Geez, get up to make a cuppa tea come back and they’ve scored twice.


#5172

Quick off the mark weren’t they?

2 in the 1st 10 minutes. Good signs.


#5173

And just a lazy 3rd, 22 minutes in.


#5174

Was this expected to be this easy?


#5175

Doubt it. Comms were just saying we’ve only beaten them once away before, soooo, Arnold, … ummm, … working?? :thinking:


#5176

Well we beat them 4-0 at the last asian cup, but they have improved a bit since then and yeah it is away.

Just a tune up for the main event, but you’d expect a better hit out than this.


#5177

very good start. Kruse is still garbage


#5178

Good crowd. :smirk:


#5179

Ha ha ha, … that was something out of nothing!!

4 zip @ 58.


#5180

And a Cracker from Irvine to make it 5 - Zero.


#5181

Not a great level of opposition, but a pretty impressive performance nonetheless.

Looked assertive in attack, held defensive structure well, … and pushed back hard to do so all through the game, despite being well up & in control.


#5182

They said it was closed to the public, but there were a few people on the grandstand side. Invitation only?


#5183

No terry Antonis but Jeggo makes it???


#5184

Antonis plays for Victory and sunk Sydney FC last year in the semis. Arnold coaches the socceroos, you do the math


#5185

Ahh, … I missed that. Thought it was odd.


#5186

Peak A-League tonight.
