Hah, that sharkarse table. Yeah right.

I prefer that sort of thing to 'expert' opinions. See Moneyball..

Good for you.

Stays on the pine in a 0-1 loss to AGF.

Mustafa Amini gets 87 mins for AGF.

Amini (age 25) is 2 years younger than Rojas, and also had a stint in Germany, straight from the A League.

Come back to Wellington Marco! We could do with a few more players for next season...

Another loss to AGF, this time 2-1 away.

SonderjyskE concede 2nd goal at 90 mins, and also had a player sent off at 88 mins.

Neither Rojas or Amini called up off the various benches.

30 mins off the bench in a 1-0 win at Horsens.

Another sub came on and the scored winner at 79 mins.

One game left in Relegation Round.

SonderjyskE (currently in relegation playoff spot) and now just 1 point behind Horsens (currently in Europa League playoff spot).

All sounds a bit complicated, but seems SonderjyskE need to overtake Horsens next week, to avoid any chance of relegation.

SonderjyskE have easier game at home to Vejle. Horsens tougher match away to AGF.

Gets 35 mins off the bench, and scores last goal in a 4-1 win over Vejle.

Think that result ensures no relegation for SonderjyskE.

Good news all around.

Looks like next is a 2 game Europa League playoff series verus Randers.

Hopefully he gains some confidence from the goal, and gets some good mins in the remaining games.

They nearly get relegated, but they're in the Europa League playoffs?

I've given this a quick look on Soccerway. It seems in the Championship Round there are 6 teams, of which the bottom two get nothing, whereas in the Relegation Round, the top 2 teams in each group go through to a UEFA Europa League Play-off.

So you could say you almost get rewarded more for being at the bottom of the table, compared to being closer to the top?

A genius system.

He took the corner/got the assist for the previous goal too as far as I can tell.

90 mins as SonderjyskE lose 2nd playoff leg 4-3 away to Randers.

So go down 4-5 overall on aggregate and I presume that means season over.

Flying Kiwis.

"Before that there’s friendly action to take care of. Rojas scored a goal in a 9-1 win over Nordals Boldklub in which 24 players took the field for SønderjyskE, pretty low key that one. He then featured from the start as Sonders came up against Malmø (Sweden), with Marco winning a penalty in the second half having been one of only two players not subbed off at the half. 

He tried to round the keeper to score with 25 mins to go but was chopped down. Johan Absalonsen scored from the sport and 2-1 was the ginal score, Malmø winning that one. Rojas also has a little competition from new signing Rilwan Hassan, a Nigerian winger who has signed from FC Midtjylland now. 

Up Next: First proper game is home to Randers at 10pm on Saturday 14 July (NZT)"

about his German move :

We recommended to Marco's dad that he actually go back on loan. Sign a four-year deal but go back on loan to the Melbourne Victory. But his father didn't want to do it and I think it was a big mistake.

Show's the value of having a good agent who understands football and can bounce ideas between themselves, the player/s involved and any potential clubs as well as their views on the direction of their signings.

No doubt Rojas has a good/positive relationship with his old man, but it sounds like dad was blinded by the lights and the move to a big club. Thinking more about the short game and not necessarily for the longer term. 

Still wish he'd come back to Wellington though...

Rojas's father reminds me of the Australian female tennis player whose father pretty much ruined career.

Finish in Odense. We win 1-0 over OB on the fine goal that Marco Rojas scored shortly before the break (0-1) #obsje #SElive

Looks like he is finally getting consistant game time, which will help his confidence and keep him sharp.
