THEY SAID ITIt was a clear penalty. Nike Free Schoenen Uitverkoop . There will not be a clearer one this year in the A-League, from Western Sydney coach Tony Popovic. And from opposite number Kevin Muscat, who has just worn a $5000 fine for criticising referees, I could be honest with you and the headlines tomorrow would be Muscat slams referee. In their different styles, both coaches agreed that Jarred Gilletts decision to deny the Wanderers a penalty for Jason Gerias tackle on Jumpei Kusukami was wrong, and a game-changer.STAT THAT MATTERSMelbourne City captain Bruno Fornaroli became the quickest man to 30 A-League goals with another double in Thursday nights 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets and now has 31 goals in 25 appearances. In just 14 months in Australia, the Uruguayan striker has already smashed the record for most goals in a single campaign.MEN OF THE ROUNDWellington Phoenix duo Ernie Merrick and Roy Krishna deserve recognition for turning around Wellingtons season. After four straight losses, the Nix have two on the bounce and are again looking dangerous. Krishna has scored in the Phoenixs last three matches and teed up Hamish Watson to seal a 2-0 win over Central Coast on Saturday. That was also Merricks 100th win as an A-League coach.SAFEST HANDSEugene Galekovic was a busy boy in the Reds 1-1 draw with Brisbane on Friday night, making six saves and keeping his side in the contest as Adelaide gained just their second point of the season.CONTROVERSY CORNERMelbourne City already enjoyed a numerical advantage over Newcastle Jets on Thursday night when they unintentionally deepened their disadvantage. With Jets skipper Nigel Boogaard off with an ankle injury, a botched double substitution saw Tim Cahill stay on the field as his intended replacement, Paulo Retre, joined him. Within a minute, City had pointed out the mistake and with no advantage gained, both clubs were able to laugh the incident off.UNDER PRESSUREJets boss Mark Jones could be facing his first major moment at the club. Three straight defeats and a long list of unavailable defenders headed by Boogaard means Newcastle head into this weekends F3 derby with their tails between their legs. A point might feel like a win. Nike Free Winkel Nederland .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. Nike Free Kopen . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe says hes at a loss to explain his teams woeful display against Newcastle, but he hasnt given up hope of turning the clubs fortunes around.Glory slipped further behind in the A-League title race after suffering a shock 2-1 loss to the lowly Jets at nib Stadium on Saturday night.The result ended Perths 10-match unbeaten run at home, and leaves them five points adrift of third spot heading into a daunting clash with ladder leaders Sydney.Newcastle entered Saturdays match with just one win to their name, but they completely dominated Perth and would have won by far more if not for a series of stunning saves by Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy.Lowe was particularly shocked at how poor his team were in the first half, with the players even booed off the field by their own supporters at the break.At the end of the day, all they want is a performance with some character and attitude, Lowe replied when asked about the booing.Its the first time for me, and hopefully its the last.Maybe its an off night. Obviously you dont want too many of those.The injury absence of star playmaker Diego Castro (hamstring) has hurt Glory at a crucial time of the year.Castro isnt due back until January, meaning hell miss cruunch matches against Sydney, Melbourne City, and Western Sydney. Nike Free Korting. Lowe was reluctant to use Castros absence as an excuse for his teams poor form.And he said it was up to everyone at the club to lift.Its not just the players. Its all of us, Lowe said.Were all in it together. Its not me, its a we scenario.Glory have just one win to their name from their past seven games.Jets attacker Andrew Hoole cancelled out Nebojsa Marinkovics opener, before an embarrassing own goal from Glory midfielder Milan Smiljanic in first-half stoppage time gifted Newcastle all three points.The Jets welcomed back Daniel Mullen, Nigel Boogaard, and Andrew Nabbout from injury against Perth, while Morten Nordstrand is set to return in Friday nights home clash with Adelaide United.Jets coach Mark Jones was thrilled with the victory against Perth, which broke a seven-match winless run.Its not rocket science. You take five or six starting players out of any team in the world, and the teams going to struggle, Jones said.If we keep playing the same way (we did against Perth), it would be nice to sneak into the six.
