What's a "preciew"?

Anyway, I'm feeling quite confident about this one, especially if we can get both Johan and Adlung back. Each has a 'take no prisoners' attitude which I really like and both can create chances out of thin air.

I suspect that Arnie the Arrogant is quietly nervous about this one. You can always tell which games he is nervous about, because his boasting goes up two orders of magnitude.

A 2 - 1 our way would be most welcome and not beyond the realms of possibility.

I thought Baba would be injured, he must have pulled up ok. Either that or they are still assessing him. Could we see Stamatopoulus starting? I would suggest not, however I can see him coming on earlier in the game.

I have a feeling absa and adlung were precautionary outs against wsw given they had a few slight niggles.

If so it could work out to be a master stroke if we take 4 points from from the week.

I don't reckon Baba will play but he is listed to keep SFC guessing.

Same with Johan and Adlung although I reckon they will be more likely to feature than Baba.

Agree.
I'll be pleasantly surprised if more than one out of Baba, Adlung and Johan play.

Wouldn't have thought we'd see the same formation would you?

Sydney's players are so fluid in changing positions.
How do you keep Mierzjiewski and Ninkovic out of the action and still keep your shape in midfield?
How do you cover Bobo, Brosque and Carney without leaving gaping holes in the defence?
No one has worked it out yet.
We've done alright against them so far, but this is a big ask for our youngsters.
If we get a result, then Kurz is a genius.

I don't think they are infallible but we have to play smart. We can win the game, but we will need some luck

Sydney werent able to get the better of us on both occasions we have played this season.

They were very even contests that could have gone either way.

Really tough ask with the kids if our injured seniors do not return

In all the interviews I have seen from Kurz and the players they always insist that they have faith in their ability and quality and they are always looking to win regardless who and where they play.

I have no doubt that they will play to win on Sunday.
Whether they succeed is another story.
