Haha what a terrible first half from sydney. Del Piero has been a class above, even better than expected for me. Every touch has been brilliant to watch..loved that little highlight compilation they did of him at half time

No seriously, I know these guys aren't world class but this is keeping 101. How the fuck can he be playing at the highest level of Australian football?

Yep we really struggled to play it out of defense, and playing a high line like that was drought with danger having two slow centre backs.

Sydney are just lulling the Jets into a false sense of security so they can save their first win for their home crowd.

They'll be much better next week, plus I'll be drunker so it won't matter anyway.
Never mind the bollocks

TIL: WSW are a real chance against bling in round 3, based on tonight's performances.

We've had an horrible pre-season + new coach + plenty of new players.

It'll take a few weeks, but we'll play some good football this season.

I will hold off wearing this free cap they sent me until they do.

Seriously though, I haven't watched any A League since season the the first 2 seasons, I'm hoping the quality improves...

if you're judging the standard of the A-league by how shitfull Sydney were at Wellington away, your opinion will be skewed somewhat

last nights game was not a reflection of the normal standard.

Antonis was worse than McFlynn.

Reid should bring a bit more stability to the middle of the park next week. Bosschart can't get fit soon enough.

The Melbourne derby first half was good.

Not really too fussed with the standard, I want to support Australian football no matter the quality, been slack since the first two seasons where I was season ticket holder.

Hey Boz we used to play indoor together didn't we? Newcastle away game I might make the trek up, good to catch up for a beer.

Did have a bit of a chuckle last night during the Wanderers game when the commentator described the RBB as "loyal".

Terrible effort yesterday.

I'm handing in my membership and joining the West Sydney Housos. Heartland of football.
Muscat admitted after the grand final loss to Sydney FC last month that he would be haunted for some time for sending his spot kick into the post, a miss which helped Sydney claim the championship.
