Chris Ikonomidis has broken Melbourne Victory hearts and given Tony Popovic his first A-League win as Perth Glory boss, scoring a 93rd-minute winner in a 3-2 AAMI Park stunner.

The fringe Socceroo put paid to Victory’s stirring comeback with a late and great breakaway goal after the champions had erased a 2-0 deficit. Keisuke Honda set up Victory’s two replies, teeing up Terry Antonis’ 47th-minute effort and then crossing for Storm Roux’s equaliser with three minutes of regular time remaining.

The controversial technology stole the headlines once again this weekend, with the Sydney derby drama taking centre stage.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

On The A-League Hour, Adam Peacock, Mark Bosnich and Ognenovski blasted the VAR, saying that it’s turning fans away.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“We’re talking about things we shouldn’t talk about,” said Ognenovski.

“We saw it at Victory and Perth, they came from 2-0 down to 2-2 in the end and yes they got sloppy in the end and conceded a goal but it’s changing the course of games and I can’t understand why we’d have the technology in place and still get decisions wrong.”

A-LEAGUE’S BEST: EX-PL DUO, SKY BLUES STAR LEADING THE WAY

“},{“contentType”:”VIDEO”,”marbleApiEnv”:”prod”,”playerType”:”player”,”videoId”:704846},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The panel discussed an incident from the 2017/18 A-League season between Sydney FC and Perth Glory where former Sky Blues striker Bobo was clearly in an offside position and interfered with play.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“There’s Bobo in an offside position,” said former Premier League shot stopper Bosnich.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Now this is where fans are getting really upset because in that instance Bobo’s clearly in an offside position and in this instance he makes a play towards the ball and holds the defender off.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Now it could be argued that he is holding his position (similar to Sotorio for WSW).”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Adam Peacock added: “There’s moments of contention in a game, there’s the point, none of this is clear cut, all of us have got opinions about it.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“The referees are getting involved in things that aren’t clear cut.”

The failure of the controversial technology has undoubtedly put a huge magnifying glass on the referees themselves, causing everyone to question their jugdement which ultimately brings the league itself into disrepute.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“You see how we just had a bit of a debate about the Bobo thing, and rightly so because this is a massive case,” said Bosnich.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“We probably had a lesser debate about the Sotirio thing because were all in agreeance.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“But under the whole umbrella of the VAR there are two very important words — ‘clear’ and ‘obvious’.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Were they clear and obvious? Definitely not on Saturday and Bobo’s is debatable.

THE A-league Hour panel say Markus Babbel’s sideline antics have actually worked in his favour — landing him in the good books of the Western Sydney Wanderers’ fan base.

The Wanderers’ new boss was cheered off the field by the away supporters after receiving a red card for remonstrating with the referee during the Sydney derby.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Western Sydney fans clearly liked what they saw — Some passion, desire and a man willing to stand up for his team.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“When he got sent off, I couldn’t help but notice the reception he got from the RBB,” said Adam Peacock.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Basically, with the action that got him sent off, he’s become a hero in the eyes of the RBB.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I’m not saying it’s going to buy him time if he has four losses on the trot, but his relationship with the all important fans isn’t in a bad place.”

The A-League Hour team discussed the importance of winning over the fans and highlighted how Babbel had managed to do that in his post-match press conference.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Western Sydney Wanderers fans, like all fans, but specially these fans, recognise someone who gives their heart and soul and honesty and that’s all we’ve had from Babbel,” said former Socceroo Mark Bosnich.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“You mention about the post-match press conference, I thought he was exactly spot on.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“He apologised for his body language, which I though was very good of him to do and he had every right to act in that manner.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“This is another point going back to the VAR, we’re now experimenting with people’s livelihoods.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“When he came in that press conference, he spoke so measured and so honestly and won so many friends.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“The other thing he turned around and said, which I thought was quite significant, is that he was a big fan of the VAR.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

I thought he spoke so well.”
