    Van Egmond joins Robinson at Wanderers

    Let the comments begin. Rivalry just gets better

    Gary van Egmond links with Carl Robinson at Western Sydney Wanderers

    EMBATTLED Carl Robinson has turned to another former Newcastle Jets coach, Gary van Egmond, to help salvage Western Sydney's season.

    Speculation has been mounting that Robinson, who quit the Jets before the start of last season to accept a three-year deal with Wanderers, was facing the sack after a lacklustre start to this campaign.


    After failing to qualify for the finals last season, Western Sydney have won only one of their first five games and much of the blame has been directed at Robinson, a former Welsh international who played in the English Premier League.

    Instead of sacking Robinson - the outcome many were predicting - Wanderers instead hired van Egmond as his assistant coach for the rest of the season.

    The 56-year-old former Socceroo steered Newcastle to their only A-League title, in 2007-08, and has since worked with national youth teams and the Matildas.

    "Gary has spent over two decades coaching in Australia and brings experience, knowledge, and an unrivalled understanding of the domestic football landscape," Robinson said in a statement.


    "Gary is set to play an integral role in our coaching team to not only guide but inspire our next generation of players coming through the Wanderers Academy into the first team, alongside our Wanderers Academy technical director, Ian Crook.

    "We are all looking forward to working closely with Gary throughout the season."

    I wondered why we keep producing such world class talent year after year.

    A-League rules out extending season, announces criteria for COVID postponements
    Dominic Bossi 6 hrs ago


    A-League clubs with five or more positive COVID-19 cases will be allowed to postpone games, as the competition grapples with the outbreak wreaking havoc on the season's schedule.


    Nine games have been postponed in recent weeks due to either the number of cases in a team or travel plans being affected by the Omicron outbreak. At least two other games are already in doubt with more almost certain to be affected next month by an expected surge in cases.

    The Central Coast Mariners' home match against Wellington Phoenix, which was initially set for Monday afternoon, was the latest clash to be postponed. A number of Mariners coaches, players and staff have been forced into isolation due after testing positive for the virus.

    It also means the Mariners' New Year's Eve match against Macarthur is in doubt while the Wanderers face a race against time to play their New Year's Day match against Western United after several members of the squad contracted the virus.

    Perth Glory have been hit hardest by the pandemic in the A-League. The club has gone through two weeks of isolation - serving the second week in Western Australia - and had four games postponed, which will mean a congested end to its regular season schedule.

    The latest COVID outbreak has forced the Australian Professional Leagues, operators of the A-Leagues, to balance health and safety protocols while continuing the season. The A-Leagues are the first major Australian competitions to attempt to play through the pandemic without bubble restrictions and with regular interstate travel.

    Speaking to the Herald and The Age on Monday, APL chief executive Danny Townsend said the priority would be to proceed with games even if clubs have positive cases, but that players with the virus would isolate from the squad until they were in the clear. However, clubs can request to have games postponed in extreme cases.

    "If the coach wants to play, the game goes ahead. However, the club has the option to ask for a postponement if they have five or more players from the previous match team sheet that are out with COVID," Townsend said.

    The APL has ruled out postponing whole rounds until the number of cases drops and has no plans to extend the season beyond its scheduled end date in late May, in part to avoid a clash with the men's under-23 Asian Cup which is set to begin on June 1 in Uzbekistan.

    To make up time for the postponed games, the APL will play rounds through both the January and March men's international windows and will play midweek games when possible.

    "Our intention is to continue and play the season by the end of May but if we have to be flexible with the window, we will," Townsend said. "We will be playing through the international breaks, that will carry on through March, so that will give us an extra round that wasn't originally scheduled."

    Interesting move by Wanderers, which is clearly a prelude to installing GVE as head coach.

    You browse the WSW forum and they can't stand the number of back passes there team does. Poor bastards don't know what they are in for if the current number is driving them nuts.

    This is going to be so good to watch just how Lederer's B Team implodes.

    Going off the Jetstream interview with GVE a few years ago 2019 I think? He seems to have dropped some of the arrogance and learnt from his mistakes
