Will be interesting to see if people vote with their feet in regards to paying 15 dollars for ACFC or free at Seddon Fields. Considering you can get a ticket to the phoenix for 25 at Eden Park..

Auckland City have been $15 for quite a while now, I doubt it will make much difference to the actual crowd. There may be one or two that will opt for free venues at Sneddon or Madills but not that many - the atmosphere will always be better at Kiwitea thanks to the 248 crew and the Bucket man

Like last season, the missus joins me for free ES games but stays at home for ACFC. Just not worth it considering she's not really interested.

5 at the back feels so... ugh. It feels like Myer, Manickum and Rogerson are all slightly out of position.

Browne is too good not to start, and in my opinion the better player of all four of them. Then Lewis comes in as well.

Surely the answer is a 4-2-3-1 with Rogerson and Lewis wide, Myer through the middle, and Browne behind them.

Yeah, I've been trying to work out how they're going to fit Lewis in with the current squad. I don't recall him playing deeper at any stage?

If he did, you could so something like: 

Jordan - Bilen -  Mitchell - Kaltak

Lewis - Howie

Rogerson - Dylan - Browne

Bevan

Agree about Dave Browne. Need a system to accommodate the best players.

Wing back is so specialist, there's not many lads can really do it well!

I don't think amateurs can do wing back full stop. None of them get high enough, and the ball movement of the CBs is never fast enough to actually make any space for them.

We have to look at this again, you've missed out my main man Ilich ?

Thought also with Bilen's cultured left foot, it makes more sense for Kaltak to be in the middle yesterday.

Bevan needs some coaching from Dicko on hold-up play.

Vale - Mitchell - Berlanga/Kaltak - Bilen/Blake

Ilich - Cam H

Rogerson - Lewis - Browne

Bevan/is there anyone else? Linderboom?

Harsh on Manickum, one of the best yesterday for sure

Where was Angel & Zubi? Both injured?

Ah did miss out Ilich. 

Striker wise we've got Linderboom & the Colombian guy that played once. Neither of them pulled up any trees.

He didn't do much but you could sense he was probably a cut above. Team wasn't really giving him the ball when he asked for it either.

As I say, put him in the list of players that doesn't really suit 5-3-2

Never understood the Conger hate, is it because he is a referee or do people think he is worst than other NZ referees? Is it just because you see him refereeing more often? Or is it Tall Poppy because he actually is quite successful as a ref.

People that are in the know, including FIFA referee selection panels must see something different as he keeps getting games at tournaments. I mean he just refereed the Superclásico de las Américas between Brazil and Argentina recently too.

Yet he still was there doing it, refereeing some of the top players in the world, in front of 22,541 people and getting paid for it.

Then there is the game at the 2018 World Cup, the 2017 and 18 Club World Cup. Couple of U20 World Cups, the Olympics. All he has refereed at. 

I get referees aren't popular and he probably (well he does) make decisions you don't agree with but he is one of NZs best referees.

If it's any consolation from them salty NRFL referees I was overhearing it was just tall poppy. Moaning about the sort of process garbage that only referees care about and fans couldn't give a toss. Things like which team goes through first when shaking hands.

FIFA refereeing selection is based on giving opportunity and exposure to all confederations. So just like Solomon Islands aren't a superpower at U20 level because they played at the U20 World Cup, neither is Conger a quality international referee. He may well be the top rated referee in the confederation, but as I said, that's the equivalent of winning the tallest dwarf competition. Besides Conger is nowhere near good enough as O'Leary or Hester, and they were both well below average as international referees.
