al-shabab-2

 

1


3 off of 3. Is it too early to say the team is on a brilliant run? Henrique Luvannor with a MoM performance today mainly due to his vision and anticipation of the second ball. However, we do question if Al Shabab can score more than two goals in a game this season?

A bye week for the team in league football. Only dropped them a point because Al Shabab deserve to be on the top of the rankings.

When healthy, Al Jazira look like the best team in the league. More interestingly, Emirati talent are stepping up for the Abu Dhabi based teams – which is always a good thing. Yet, the season has only begun and the crucial moment has not yet arrived.

Al Wasl have been very, very very good when both Brazilians Caio and Fabio start finding the net. For a second league match in a row, both have showed up on the scoring list. A potential front partnership to drool over? Will have to wait and see.

Glad to see last season’s top scorer back doing what he does best – score goals. The midfield looked disconnected at times but this team is a work in progress. Gut feeling is that Dzsudzsák will most likely leave the team in January. Just a gut feeling.

The derby had all the drama that one expects of it. Will be disappointed not to get that penalty call in the dying minutes. We understand the attack struggling without Wanderley but that cannot be an excuse of lack of opportunities. Al Wasl’s defense can’t possibly be that good?

Disappointment. However, no reason to issue the distress call as of yet. Enough said.

Held their chin up and battled valiantly to win the first round of the battle between the newly promoted teams.

Agree that its early on, but are already showing signs that regular season might look like a lost cause.

Power Rankings did not expect entertainment coming out of this game. But it did come in the 90th minute via a stunner by Hamad Al Hosani. And what a stunner it was!!!! Tough loss though.

Will Theo Bucker be able to fix this? Lack-lustre on all angles which is so unlike the Dibba we had been accustomed to last season.

Mohammed Kwid has a lot of work to do. Al Dhafra have plenty of good players, but turning them into a squad that can remain in top division next season may be too much of an ask.

Needless to say that they were allowed into good spots, but couldn’t break the defensive knot set up by Dibba and make that decisive play. Quality to finish is lacking with this group.
