Western Sydney hasmanaged justone win from theopening six rounds of the A-League competition.

The club is four points worse off than it was at the same time last season.

But with a big crowd expected forthe visit of Socceroos legend Cahill, Popovic said this week’s match posed the perfect opportunity to kick-start a stutteringseason.

“We have a good historyagainst them [City]… and I think it’s a game that football as a whole and our fans should be relishing,” he said on Thursday.

“We expect a big crowd, Melbourne City is a very good footballing team. They’ve had a good start to the season.”

Melbourne have made a scintillating start to the new season, andsit secondonthe ladder with four wins and two losses.

AlthoughCahill is yet to hit top gear in a City shirt, strike partner Bruno Fornaroliand midfield general Luke Brattan are in top form and will surely cause headaches for what has been aleaky Wanderers backline.

Popovic said his side would need to show respect for the high-quality visitors, but was confident of gaining a much-needed three pointsthis weekend.

“We have a game plan we believe can cause them problems. We’re at home in front of our fans, we feel that they’ll certainly need to worry about us,” he said.

“We feel we’re playing well enough to get results…now it’s about executing better on the day.”

“The club has high expectations, so do the fans…We’re four points worse off this year and it’s about closing that gap and kicking on.”

Attacking midfielder Mitch Nichols echoed his coach’s sentiments, saying that the side “needed a win” to regain its confidence.

“So far we’ve thrown away two victories. We put 60 minutes together but back off for the last 30,” he said.

“When we put that full 90 [minutes] together, we will get that result. We owe our fans that for the past few weeks.”

He said the players were looking forward to the challenge offacingCahill, but added he was just one of City’s many threats.

“There’s always a good turnout withthe crowd and obviously everyone knows the hype Timmy brings to the league so it will be good for the fans,” he said.

“But he’s just another player on the night. We know his strengths so it’s just about limiting his options on the night.”

Oyster issues on global agenda

Founder and president of the World Oyster Society professor Katsuyoshi Mori visited Eyre Peninsula last week as part of an Australian visit to look at potential topics for the symposium.

Comingfrom the Miyagi Prefecture in Japan, where the pacific oyster originated, professor Mori felt compelledto startthe society in 2005 to improve knowledge about the speciesand promote his philosophy: “Let the sea live and let us live with the sea.”

The organisation has five chapters, including the Asian and Oceanian Chapter, which Australia is part of, and worldwide membershiphas grown from 20 members to 860 and professor Mori ishoping to reach 1000 members beforethe international symposium next year.

He said theCrassostrea gigasvirus,known in Australia as pacific oyster mortality syndrome (POMS), was the biggest issue facing the pacific oyster industry across the world, not just in Australia.

During his visit professor Mori met withlocal researchers, growers and hatchery operators and visited a hatchery and Chris and Linda Hank’s Pure Oyster Farm at Coffin Bay.

Mr Hank said the risk of pacific oyster mortality syndrome was an issue for the local industry but he was staying positive.

“To be a farmer you have to be an optimist and so we are going ahead with what we have always done in the past and hopefully we don’t get it but if we do then we’ll have to work our way around it.

“But of course we’d prefer it didn’t happen.”

Professor Mori said he believed the pacific oyster was one of the best indicators of climate change because they were so widespread worldwide and they were so sensitive to their environment.

Asian and Oceanian Chapter director Jill Coates said by gathering oyster mortality data at different ages, different sizes and different times of the year at the same time as environment data such as pH, temperature, disolved oxygen and chlorophyll the industry could start to understand what the impact of climate change might be.
