    His leadership and organisation at the back that has led to many goals being shipped over the last few years? sure

    We always look way worse at the back when he isn't fit is my main take away

    People forget that before Boogaard came, the year we had under Stubbins there was zero leadership in the team. Nobody was vocal and we shipped 2.04 goals on average per game.

    In the last 4 seasons with NTS and Boogaard there we have shipped 1.34 (GF Season), 1.48 (Merrick), 1.54 (Merrick/Deans/Robbo) and 1.46 (Deans) goals per game.

    By comparison, our goals scored in the same period are 2.03, 1.33, 1.23 and 0.92.

    Teams are always going to score goals against you. My thinking is that had we had a more functioning attack (i.e. attackers and midfielders) in that time that a) we would be defending less and b) we would have won more and been more successful.

    Had we been more successful, we probably wouldn't be questioning this and looking at him AND Nikolai for the partnership they are - one of the best in our history.

    HE's a smart footballer and when he does leave us, his absence will be missed and not easily replaced - much like we missed Dimi this year.

    Agree that his best is behind on the field and I reckon had it not been for COVID and Donachie going overseas he may not have gone around again this year, but you cannot understate the positive impact that he's had on our club.

    Boogs is one of the best footballers I have seen in the A-league.
    Champion footballer who will be very difficult to replace.

    I may have been one of the people thinking we need to move on from Boogs this off season.

    But that doesn't mean I don't understand how good a CB he was for us and how good a leader, and bloke by all accounts, he is/was. Boogs and NTS was a terrific CB pairing compared to everyone else I've seen in this league.

    I hope he walks straight into a role on our bench, we still need his skillset just in a different capacity.

    I agree with all that you say. The timing was right for all.

    One thing I underestimated about Boogs for quite a few years was his ability on the ball. He has been by a long way our best ball playing CB in recent times, with great composure and calmness on the ball and fantastic passing range. The possession side of our game has suffered big time whenever he has been out, and whenever we have watched NTS or Jackson try to fill his shoes in playing the ball out from the back, pinging switches and penetrating lines with passes, his absence has been noted.

    I don't know enough about Donachie as to whether he fill this role for us if he is to step in next season, but if not we will have a lot of work to do in adjusting how we play.

    This to say nothing of intangibles and leadership, of which I'm sure he brought a lot as well.

    I wouldn't have been disappointed had he gone around again.

    The way he relentlessly hacked Berisha, with a smile on his face... I'll never forget that.
    Thanks Boogs!

    But he played for us first in the NSL. He also gave the ball to Vidmar to assist Griff scoring inthe grand final.

    I'd say he's more a mole.

    I mean yeah... right up until the have to run all around the pitch and then try to pass under pressure.

    I'll admit they are all good passers, but let's not let things get out of hand.


    Also, has anyone forgotten that Victory won the spoon this year?? Cause I haven't, lol.

    I'm still p!ssin' myself

    After the sh!t season we've had? That win last night was a release of the pressure valve.
    Two things I can think of to have possibly made that win sweeter are:-
    a) the winning goal coming from a controversial VAR decision...in the 96th minute.
    b) the result in another multiverse sends the Tards down a division.
    We're Smart Patrol, nowhere to go, Suburban robots that monitor reality
    Common stock, we work around the clock. We shove the poles in the hole, shove it!
