I would be keen to see who from our team against WSW will take the field again. Some would have been really tired at the end of that game, and I am happy Uffie gave Davila and Piscopo an early shower.

With Sail in goal we are going places, Rojas will be back for the Vuc unfortunately.

They are down on their luck and have really sucked so far this season. As far as I'm concerned it's a 6 pointer, and a winnable one at that, especially if we display the same fighting spirit and attacking intent asagainst WSW

Agreed. Surely, Brebner's last game in charge!

I stopped making predictions after our game against the Jets, the team that lost all games till then.

Victory will be fired up for a win and this game is already set to be the "Battle for the spoon". When it comes to games like these we just cant compete with the big clubs. Sail to keep us in the game 0-0 draw.

Victory aren't exactly a 'big club' anymore.

Game vs Victory will be very crucial in terms of our placing. We're gonna have to win by a big margin. Goal difference proving the difference between a lot of teams this season. Unlike the last couple of seasons, there's no easy team this season. Quite difficult to pick who will make the top 6 with every team giving it their all. We've got a couple of games on hand against most of the teams in the top 6 so we have to make those games count towards maximum points if we want to have a good season.

Could see this? Would like to Devlin in the midfield with Lewis to see how they'd operate but can see Uffie sticking with Rufer

'win by a big margin' - why?

1-0 will be more than adequate

The league is really tight this season. You can't really count any team out. In the end, it may be the goal difference which could boost us into finals series.

We need to be really fired up for this one. MV will be after all the media they have been kopping. Hope McGarry is up for a big game. He is going to have his hands full with McManaman. 

COYN

You can do this.

Time to really click and bang in a few.

Wow, we are playing with only 1 visa player in starting line up. Just shows how much belief and faith Ufuk has in the young ones. Good to see them stepping up too. 

COYN!

Lewis dropped?

He looked shattered at the end of the game on Sunday, so probably more rotation than a reflection of his fantastic efforts

Pathetic comment. They certainly are. Perhaps not as they were but still a big club.by any standards

Well given the other two visa players are either suspended (Ball) or injured (Hemed), Talay doesn't have much choice.

Don't we only have three visa players? Hemed is injured and Ball suspended. Davila is the only one available.
