    That's a very hard No from me.
    Understand your thoughts. But the facts are, we are on 2 points from 4 games. Lose another game and we are in deep you know what. We need points, we have a really good player in Wes H out til January. We need to be in the mix before he comes back, let's not give everyone a headstart.

    Basically we are going to be weaker anyway we have 3 players unavailable this week plus the 2 attacking players that are already out. Thats 5 out, 3 off which are attack minded players, so we need to look at options.

    Western United are an older team, probably the oldest in the league. Why not throw some pace at them?Especially with Durante and Gulum at the back and No Risdon available.

    Miller best strengths are with the ball, he isn't in our top 5 defenders. Against Adelaide he constantly got caught too high up the park. Troisi and McGree killed us when the space opened up.

    The only other option could be to keep john k as left back and give Pat Langlois an opportunity at right back. Miller for me at right wing is a must, thurgate at cm is a must for me as well. Pace and sharpness to combat the older Western United

    If we didn't have the financial restraints an injury replacement would be extremely handy right about now...Especially a wide player or striker

    My team would be

    Rb johny k
    Lb l jackson
    Cb topor
    Cb boogs
    Cm stevie u
    Cm angus t
    Rw miller
    Am dimi
    Lw fitzy
    Str hoff
    Subs
    Pretty much whoever is left including ben kanta, petratos boys, pat l

    Reasoning, need goals. Hoff has shown in trials he can finish. Miller can add pace down flanks, fitzy had his best game for a few years and needs a run off games to get some confidence.

    Thurgates prefered position is cm, lets give him a full game, is surely the long term option there.
    Jackson not ideal left back but deserves another game. Good to see john k as right back
    Jackson and Topor need to stay as a partnership, Johnny needs to stay at LB, being out of form, last thing he needs is another position to get to grips with as he's only played LB this season.

    Kanta and Ugar a must

    Keep the attacking three and give Maki Petratos a run, Hoff does not do well at the point of attack

    We are 2 points off 1st place with lots of rounds to go.
    Rest the players, put the youth in.
    Sign Kale for a guest stint. Goals galore.


    You guys gotta start thinking big picture here.

    nah but if he got targeted like he did with those two teams based on this season, I dont have any faith he would've played any better

    agree with Mariners and Sydney games, his positioning for goals wasnt great.

    he was fine against Adelaide and he had Castro on him all day against Perth but defended well. Castro went after him big time trying to create numbers in his area of the field.

    Johnny K shut that shit down, with a good chunk of help from Topor.


    gonna be fun though when Ernie breaks up the solid centre back pairing to bring Boogaard back in and shuffle Jackson off out wide or something bad.

    love this team.

    I felt Castro spent alot of time on our right hand side. Maybe I should watch games again (Shudder)

    This is why we will forever be shit. The Hoff up top has been tried and tried and tried. And failed miserably. Again and again and again. But hey let's try it one more time....

    This is exactly how it was for the first 8 weeks of last season. Club treating the competition and supporters with contempt.

    With 5 players out we can't be exactly picky. There isn't exactly a truckload of options.

    You do realise Hoffman cost a grand final win because he couldn't finish??

    Missed not 1 but 2 sitters with one of them being an empty net

    I know we struggling for options but no ****ing way is this a legitimate option

    Play Lachie Jackson up from before Hoffman plays 9

    Hell play Johnny K up there seeing as we play him out of position every other week

    I'm more concerned with our other players who failed to get into scoring positions than I am with Hoff.

    Watch JohnnyK being torn apart by Diamanti...
    I honestly have no faith in him at the moment, he had a big part in Perth's goal on Sunday too.
    His passing has been bad.
    He's not a LB, how many games do we have to lose to prove it?
    Give Burns a chance: really, he can't be worse than JohnnyK.

    Burns absent this weekend but I do tend to agree he needs a chance
