The players had given up on their Sydney FC long before the fans did. They stopped believing their own hype. Then the results soon followed. Bad luck with injuries has been the way for Sydney over the last 4 years. Key player Collosimo could be back (his first game of the season?) next week against the Roar.
Again the main sensations in this game, apart from Sydney at last finding a teenager who can run with the ball and score (Denning), were Ben Williams refering decisions. Firstly, McFlynn deliberately trys to fool the game by punching the ball over the Wellington keeper and in - only a yellow card when surely that is a red. Then Wellington danger-man Hearfield is sent off for an alleged head butt on Alex Brosque. Is this all Brosque can do dive about and claim fouls?
Wellington were unlucky. Sydney must hope that Central Coast don't get more than 2 points from its last games and that Wellington doesn't get 4, while it wins both its last two.
