607 – Couldn’t Cut The Mustard

After a solid performance in the opening round we figured that a team that got beaten 5-1 by their rivals would be a simple task. Wrong. This was a Mariners team looking to emerge out from under the waters.

The Hills/Liverpool team talk about the game, our top performers and preview the derby this Saturday.

Western Sydney’s mediocre season has finally come to an end at the hands of Brisbane Roar. We talk of what went right, and what obviously went wrong, and what we should have done.

S05E25: Youth Tube™

Whatever happened in round 27, we were going to get an away final so Popa decided to mix youth, experience, and Ryan Griffiths for his team lineup. In the end, it was a hard fought second half which produced a 2-2 draw, putting us up against the Roar – meaning we’ll have played them in every finals series we’ve participated in. A win there would have the FFA covered in more ectoplasm than Randy Marsh, knowing they’ll take all the ticket earnings from a Sydney Derby semi.
