The Jetstream Ep51 – TriffIce Ice Baby

Furns (@newyboys) is joined this episode by David (@JeterPool), Michael (@BodyNovo) and Emma (@Synapse101).
After the opening question, we delve into the details of a 2-2 draw away from home to Brisbane Roar. We go through the major talking points from the game and review the overall performance while discussing tactics, stats and player performances.
We talk about some news on the ownership front, by going through the two main prospective buyers. We then talk about a few Newcastle players who have left or are on the outer before going over those Jets W-League players who made or missed out making the Matildas squad. We the get into some correspondence from fellow Jets supporters we preview the game on Saturday 20th February against Wellington Phoenix at Hunter Stadium. We then give our tips and thoughts on the rest of the games in Round 20.
