Annoying how you can't see how much time has gone past. Surely it is nearly half time?

I'm going to get some sleep instead of watching the second half, I hope I regret this decision when I see the news tomorrow

The best part of mulligans game seems to be missing.

his free kicks have been poor.
 
No one looking brilliant, Hogg and Exposito maybe standing out the most.

It's looking like Barcelona will be Spain's only chance in this competition.

Overall though after 75 minutes, Auckland have accounted for themselves well today.
 
Some chances one glaring one.

Good effort from the team, certainly did not look out of place.

2 top saves from the other team could have been 2-2. Well Done ACFC

Feneridis was awful, out of his depth..even ghosts around in asb and gets away with it. Corralas should have started with his current form. Exposito who i normally speak high of, in my opinion tonight was dreadful.

Thought Hogg was outstanding first half but had a quiet second spell. Vicelich done ok. Mulligan had a good second half. Andreu did alright. Dickinson battled upfront...not sure i would have taken him off.

Berlanga was outstanding!! surely caught the eye of some scouts!

Looked better when City went more direct.

My thoughts anyway.

I thought although clearly not the better team, ACFC performed creditably. Certainly came back in the second half and did well to put a fair bit of pressure on the Japanese side. Just wish Mulligan's free kick had of gone in. Would have made the last 10 very interesting.

It's interesting to read Simon Plumbs article in the Stuff website saying that City were well in it for the 1st half an hour.... interesting because I don't consider defending your ass off and not getting over half to be 'well in it'....
 
Credit to Auckland because they showed they were no bunnies and they had parity for a good chunk of the 2nd half. That opening half they really struggled with it and when the J League side went 2 up, they did sit off a bit and that allowed ACFC back into the game. I do think it was evident in the 1st 5 mins that the J League side were the better team. The pace of the game and the speed of which they rushed the back 4 is something that no other side will do to ACFC in the Premiership but it should show the other 7 teams that if you force the pressure, that the some of the 1st touches will let players down.
 
Greyhound I agree that Feneridis was out of his depth but he is one of those guys that your other supporters swear he is A League material. He is the invisible man mostly. I thought Ian Hogg showed a bit about himself and would have to be the fastest footballer in the country. Maybe got caught out of position early a couple of times early on but I think he should be counting the days until he is playing elsewhere. Pritchett showed he can't defend nor has a good 1st touch (we agreed on the prior) Spoonley was caught out positionally and getting beaten near post is a cardinal sin. Exposito was awful and I always come back to that word quality which get bandied around about him. Good for our level but thats all. Berlanga is the one that reminds me of Ryan Nelsen. Doesn't do too much, nothing flashy but just a nod here, a touch there keeps it stable and rock solid. He is the one you need to keep.
 
They needed an ounce of luck (which they didn't get on the 1st goal and the Mulligan FK) and to adjust quicker to the pace of the game early on. It wasn't to be but they did not disgrace themselves.
