S05E20: Perthetic

The hangover from the derby included a 4-0 and a 2-0 loss to Urawa and Perth respectively. Needless to say, the joy after our first win in Homebush was short lived, and we get to thinking about what we, as fans and consumers of this product, expect from the club we support.

With a tough game against Shanghai and then returning to play bottom placed Adelaide, it could be a long couple of months leading to the end of the season - unless things change for the better

Saturday night was one for the ages - the streak was broken, the unbeatable were beaten, Santalab seemingly changed his entire temperament in the course of a week, and even a one-eyed monster could see what it meant to the WSW players.

After airing our grievances (is it Festivus yet?) we try to maintain some form of optimism about the upcoming derby, with a bit of success, and wonder if Popa is just pulling our collective leg

That winning feeling returned to the lives of the Wanderers players and fans in the unlikely setting of New Plymouth, despite the best efforts of the referee and linesman to do their business on our clean sheets.

We're only one game away from the final derby of the regular season and we've got one hurdle to overcome in the Central Coast Mariners - but they'll be looking for their 3rd win on the trot so we'll be finding ways to show that kebabs > fish and chips.
