mal469 - yes, we tried to put 4 boys to mark "super-sub", but like you said, it opened up the field for the others!
Siralex, I'm new to this comp, so I'll keep my judgement to myself. I was impressed with Merrylands, they have quality, and will beat most sides. Seeing your result, and having seen Parra City last season, obviously Auburn are the benchmark, and Parra City were clearly the best team in Div 2, so we've all got a lot to do to catch up!
Most of the teams played Div 2 last year, and its fair to say it was Parra City was the best side, then the rest were quite even (Guildford, Wenty Uniting, Winsto, Holroyd, Toonie).

siralex like i said auburn good team, can be beaten but with a lot of work, how many players did you borrow from your 16s, there a good team to, may be you should keep them in your team, they look good.
Greys 0 Rouse 4, Was told Greys had 10 players & had chances but played poor. Only 2 Greys players from last year,the rest made up from Last years Wenty waratah. Don't expect a challange from Greys this year siralex. Not much Fun or a contest winning by 7or 8 goals every week siralex.
siralex, assistant to last years coach, his son didn't come back so too him. Looks like we might have to wait to round 12 to play you guys, this @#$%^ weather looks like it's setting in over the next few days and I think we'll be very lucky to play any soccer this week. My boys are looking forward to playing you guys this week though. Getting smashed by 6,7 or 8 to last years state champions we'll cop that on the chin. Hoping to just be competitive this year.

siralex if greys was your last hope, why didnt you take your team to 18/1s like you said,its only round one,and football is a funny game, all teams will get better, better then your boys we will have to wait and see.
Mal469 Welcome to the top job. I secretly love beating merrylands cos theyre a tough team to break down. Need to stay focused and try not to conceed early goals. Keeps the boys fighting on
Littleted Absolutely spot on. I think we played greystanes 5-6 times last year. The coaches and supporters from both teams became friends.
Mrfootball I think you guys have a keeper who will challenge greys keeper as the best keeper in the comp. Where did he come from. Also i think parra city is better then the 7-0 scoreline. They need to adjust and play a little more
Lucky our keeper isn't on the forum, he tends to think he's the best keeper in the comp this year. 2-0 ( 1 trial match) as captain as was keen to be captain this weekend.lol. against auburn. I'll tell every one the secret to beat auburn...exactly as siralex said if you don't conceed early goals the game changes into one that auburn feels like they have to chase the game to win, I guess their own expectations is not to drop a point this year as well. Teams tend to fall apart at the back end of the second half due to them chasing the ball for 1/2 or 3/4's of the game, i'd like to know how you guys get this team so fit during the off-season.
Mal, The training for my boys in the off-season is old school. 1 hour hard core running and agility work. And 30 minutes intense ball work. The less they touch the ball the more they respect it, and theres always the threat if ball work is sloppy we do running all night. Your keeper is a good keeper, kept u in a few games last year, including greystanes semi final

Dont agree,its early days,and might change as season goes on,.Auburn had a vdery good team last year,won state cup and champoion of champions,But Siralex would know,and I saw some really good games,with one nil ,results and draws,greys pushed auburn and baulko did a few times too,this would of been a great benifit to Auburn going into the state cup and c of champions,.You only had to look at the finals last year,not one blowout,all very good even close games,aub d,greys,baulko and even merrylands. Aub D by all reports have lost many players as have greys,Baulko all the guys gone,merry dont know about ? surprised merry keeper didnt move up,from what I saw ,loads of potential ,raw talent,hope its not wasted!
Welcome back giddy. Good to hear from u. Auburn were thinking of playing 18s but with amount of players we lost, I think we lost 7 players, we decided to stay. the quality last year was good but cant compare till we play every team
