    ALM - Jets v Victory - 3 February 2024 6:00pm

    we gonna get pumped.

    Looks like the match preview on the A-league website has been created by AI - just a bunch of statements of fact. I particularly like the one below

    Fornaroli has been a talisman in front of goal for Mel Victory, scoring on 13 occasions. The striker is the league's top scorer in 2023/2024.
    He's going to do well to get back from Qatar in time for the match.

    Another week, another goal conceded from a set piece.

    I don't mind the football we're playing at the moment: considering the circumstances, Stanton is doing a good job.
    Young team, there will be mistakes, and that's ok.
    But the playing style is positive, ball and players movement are ok. We even score goals.

    Just get rid of Ingham, please

    I must be watching a differnet game because when Taylor and Piscopo are out our style is pass around the back until a fullback becomes free for a pass. Mark our FBs and we wont get out of our halves

    Totally agree Mic, I think we look pretty good for majority of games, get rid of Ingham

    Now that he's back in the squad, I'd like to see Aquilina get put in at RB over Ingham.

    Good to see names like Piscopo and Taylor back in the squad, I agree with Stanny that the team looks infinitely better with them two in the team, much more creativity and it brings out the best of Stamma as well.

    Does anyone know when we can possibly expect Bayliss and Dowse back to full health, wish we could see how both would have developed over the course of the season as I was a fan of what we saw from Bayliss and liked what I saw from Dowse last season for Perth

    how does Izzo get man of the match? He wasn't even the best keeper on the pitch in that game.

    It would be based on their stupid "player index" system - I guarantee two penalty saves gave him big points without noting the context.

    What was the story with a member of the Jets coaching staff sprinting all the way round he outside of the pitch to the other side of the field late in the 2nd half?

    He looked like he was checking on the well being of a player who was limping (but not down requiring attention), but the game was going on and he was also clearly passing instructions and dictating something to the players as they set up to defend a corner.

    Don't think I'd ever seen it before. Obviously not any major issue but just thought in the world of everything being hyper analysed seeing someone clearly coaching outside the technical area was a new one, even for all the nonsense we've seen at the Jets over the years.

    Agree with the Taylor and Reno thoughts. Also we look better with 2 strikers especially the unimaginative way we are playing and the one dimensional teams that are in this league. Why not just start Goodwin with Stammo and see if we can change things around instead of always chasing our tails.

    Also, they ran out modus cans in the 2nd half, for a crowd of sub 6k.

    Shameful.

    Sort it out with Middleby and co at the next meeting please Mr Jeterpool.

    Cheers.

    Goodwin can't handle starting yet nor should he based on his form

    So he can play the last 20mins of a game but not the first 20? Does time work differently in each half?

    Please explain this to me.

    The tiredness in players and intensity in the final 20 mins is extremely different to the start of a game and he's shown nothing this season to suggest he is ready for that

    So you're saying his team mates will be better if he plays the 1st 20 mins.

    Cool, now I get it.

    I completely understand what you're trying to explain. I just disagree with it.

    In a team of indifferent results and performances, sticking to the same method doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. I'm longing for a different approach.

    I think the Wellington game is a great example of my frustration.

    Everyone knows Wellington try and score on the break, then defend deep for the rest of the game.

    They peppered long balls to Barbarouses like they always do and we gave away an early pen. From that moment everyone knew what was going to happen. We were going to have the bulk of the play and they were going to sit deep and counter.

    All we did in attack was go side to side trying to find an open channel for our wide men to cross in. Our game plan was also completely transparent.
    Problem was we were always free at the back and lacking more than one (albeit very good) target for the crosses.

    At the 5 minute mark when the pen was converted our coach needed to decide how he was going to play it. Yet he tried the same thing for 40 more minutes before deciding to put an extra man up front (Goodwin for stynes) to take advantage of our tactics. Why not straight away?

    He then waited till 67th minute to sacrifice a back for the extra attacker and we scored not long after.

    When a red card is given in games coaches immediately sacrifice players and change tactics because of what is in front of them. Yet we still have this mentality of 'waiting to see' when we concede early or the game falls into the opponents hands like Wellington.

    I just want coaches to be braver and smarter. At the moment they all seem to be reading from the same book and it doesn't seem to be helping anyone.
