15. Iacopo La Rocca 58 A-League appearances, 6 goals (2012-15)
As a defensive-minded player, the Italian also arrived as an unknown in the club's first season before going on to score 6 goals for the club and then some in the Champions League and the Club World Cup. Two against Sydney FC and the sealer in the 2014 semi final win over the Mariners were the perfect way of displaying his underestimated impact.
14. Andreu 27 A-League appearances, 3 goals (2015-16)
Helped the Wanderers to their first point of the 2015-16 season with a late equaliser in Adelaide before showing his confidence from the penalty spot, where he scored two goals from last season. Andreu had the excellent ability to work his way out of difficult situations where he was surrounded by defenders. His midfield presence alongside fellow Spaniard, Dimas, was always a calming influence on the side.
13. Jerome Polenz 47 A-League appearances, 2 goals (2012-14)
The German defender was one of the most unheralded foundation players for the Wanderers in his two seasons at the club before he moved to Brisbane Roar. His trademark headband and ponytail endeared himself to the crowd while his consistent performances and versatility on the pitch were often relied upon. His dance celebration to the crowd after scoring against Perth in 2014 showed the kind of relationship he had with the fans.
12. Aaron Mooy 49 A-League appearances, 4 goals (2012-14)
Had a strong two seasons with the Wanderers before he only got better at Melbourne City, earning a move to second-tier English side Huddersfield Town. Brilliant at fluent passing movement, Mooy was also threatening from set-piece situations, with the ability to score from long-range free kicks, or whip in the perfect assist.
11. Mitch Nichols 43 A-League appearances, 11 goals (2015-)
Nichols completely revived his career when he joined the Wanderers last season after spending a couple of unhappy years in Perth and Japan. It was almost the perfect start to life as a Wanderer for Nichols when his 10 goals last term helped his side to a third grand final in four years, only to fall short. Nichols hasn't missed an A-League game since joining the club and continues to be one of the first names on the team list in 2016-17.
