Won't know who we are facing until after tonight's game but might as well start a thread.

Glory Please. But think both these teams are beatable.

Perth are a shambles at the moment.

WU are virtually the opposite.

I don't think I can take another early exit. We need a semi-final minimum

So is Krishna coming back yet?

We won't play WU - Perth or Brisbane are the options. Perth definitely the more preferable one.

Lets really hope it is the Glory.

Only team Nix has beaten since games restarted.

Lost 4 of their 6 hub games. 

Rumours of nepotism and a player walking out. 

No Castro or Ikonomidis, plus defenders Swiss international Gregory Wuthrich and Korean Kim Soo-Beom (yeah googled the last 2) never returned post Covid.

Like the Nix in a hub 4 hours flying away from family. Perth feels like another country to most Aussies, and I presume vice versa if you live in the world's most remote big city (most remote above 1M people or something). 

A controversial owner who openly stopped player wages in the Covid break.


And the baggage that they blew their big chance to finally be champions last season when hosting the GF, in that brand new shiny beautiful stadium, when it finally seemed their time. That would have & will still hurt. They have a proud long history (by Aussie standards) going back to NSL, but they have never been A League champs. Arguably biggest club in the league not to win the big dance.

Their “Premiership window” under Poppa may have gone after losing last season, and a lot of that expensive squad having moved on now. Is Poppa consigned to be the best A League coach never to win the toilet seat?

Nix fans maybe a bit flat at the moment, but it would be worse to be a long standing Glory supporter. Robbed by Berisha's dive in that GF at Suncorp in 2012. Nix should be good chance against them.

The Nix were (still are?) planning an event at Shed 6 similar to the one at Mac's for the game against Adelaide. Don't know if they're still going through with it given the Level 2 restrictions now.

I'm back with my always correct predictions, I've turned the corner - opened a new chapter in my life and see a more positive out come coming up for the Nixs. Glory/Roar will just beat us 2-1 with a late pen in the 90min to once again as always crash us out of the finals series. Ending the chapter that was the Wellington Phoenix in the A-League as there shown the door without a license and forever become a superstition myth that a New Zealand club can be successful in a Australian league.

COYN!

Hopefully we get the Glory, although we can beat the Roar too.

It's a good thing our Elim Final is on the 22nd and not the 23rd. Means we only have to win 3 games in 8 days, as opposed to 3 in 7 days, to be the Champions! 

Not much of a break for winners of the second Elim final, having to play Sunday, then the SF on Wednesday.

Rudan has put out the B team vs City. Good chance we will get to face the Glory now.

Goal for City after 12 mins after an awful WU clearance.

what's our plan with no Hooper? Changes of formation? Of personnel? Ultimately those who questioned his reliability for us were proved right. Injured and out of the finals. Don't get me wrong- would love him to keep playing for us, but next year is guna be different. The top two version of the side required him. What is our last throw of the dice? I'd hope Uffie has more about him than Rudan, who used that finals game as development for a player he was taking with him. Trust and hope someone finds their shooting boots?

Rufer as an out and out striker. He is due.

Am glad we’re getting the Glory and not Brissie, we might be able to sneak through with a penalty earned by Libby or Elliott now.
