I will be doing an update here with results as they come in. White Text Black Backround (Like This)
Are the Nix about to turn around recent poor performances - new players, new manager and seemingly a better drilled side going forward??
Hard to see how other teams stack up but to be fair all teams start with a clean slate and the first 10 games of the season will determine how all teams do indeed stack up.
Last year the first 10 games for the Nix were 5 home and 5 away. The same applies to this season (see draw below) I'm guessing we might just have a great start to the season (Nix need to keep a clean sheet at home - including no losses) That's a mental hurdle they have to get over and if Darije Kalezić can do that yes awesome turnaround.
Draw (10 rounds.)
Rnd 1 8 Oct Home to Adelaide Drawn 1-1 (Dario Videsic 5')
Rnd 2 13 Oct Away to Sydney FC Loss Away 2-3 Videsic 44' & Kaluderovic 60'
Rnd 3 21 Oct Away to Melbourne FC 1-nil loss to MCFC Nix 8th MCFC are 1st on ladder
Rnd 4 28 Oct Home to Brisbane Roar Roar are last Nix should win 2-0 or 3-1Andrija Kaludjerovic 1' 20', Roy Krishna 18'
Rnd 5 4 Nov Away to Newcastle Jets Jets are now 3rd. Nix goaless
Rnd 6 12 Nov Home to Perth Glory Glory are 6th (one ahead of Nix)
Rnd 7 18 Nov Away to West Sydney Wanderers WSW are currently 3rd
Rnd 8 25 Nov Home to Central Coast Mariners CCM are placed 9th
Rnd 9 3 Dec Home to Melbourne Victory Victory are 7th.
Rnd 10 9 Dec Away to Brisbane Roar. Roar are still tailgunners - 10th.
So far I like what I see. Although no win as yet but there is huge promise.
I love my sport. I follow the Nix because they are our team. I may not be a true YF supporter and football savvy participant but in spirit I want them to win something. The targets need to be realistic - win and draw and settle on a top 6 after 10 rounds. Not too much to ask it is it??
