Who Can Predict the A-League?

Who can predict the A-League? Just when it looked like the die had been cast for the season, a few results have turned everything on its head.

Brisbane Roar still retain their seven point lead at the top of the table, but they just cannot seem to beat their nemesis, the Newcastle Jets. The Jets unlikely 1-0 win at Suncorp Stadium on the weekend reminded everyone that, as good as they have been, Brisbane are beatable.

So Eddie everywhere except Asia thinks the Asia Cup is a lemon as he told Sir Frank Lowy in his recent Fox Sports interview on some AFL show.

Not a bad little interview, Frank was very impressive and you have to wonder if Frank had dropped the ball on the A-League in recent years given the good news flowing after one meeting with Nathan Tinkler this week.

We all saw the Brisbane Roar flying around the field last year, the Mariners were not far behind and of course Melbourne and Adelaide always set a standard, often exciting.

Last March there was a report coming out of Australia that Adelaide United player Marcos Flores could be heading to the Portland Timbers before the transfer window closes as the team's Designated Player. This report ended up being false, at least according to its time table. Yesterday a fresh report popped up on Adelaide Now (Adelaide's newspaper) that the Timbers might be interested in him.

The dogged resurgence of Heart, Phoenix, and Adelaide, has added an extra layer of spice in the competition for finals spots in 2014. The result, is that we now head into a round 18 where every single game is a vital 6-pointer.

The intensity of this year's competition was shown by the mad scramble at the end of the transfer season – with almost every club adding some serious swagger to their roster.

It's been a long time coming but Sergio Van Dijk is now apparently an Indonesian citizen and has signed for Persib.

I think it was two or three years ago that new broke the striker was interested in playing in Indonesia and for Indonesia and now the 30 year old has made it.

He has been playing in Australia for the last four and half years averaging a goal every couple of games almost for first Brisbane Roar, then Adelaide United.

In the drill there were only defenders - against Wellington and Victory there were 7 or 8!

Fantastic the football on the weekend.

Harry Kewell turned back the clock with a wonderful performance, again. If Archie or Danny could have finished one or two of their Harry inspired chances Victory would have won.

If you have played at the top in front of the Kop when you return home you want to have some passion, some feeling from a large crowd.

And what better team to sign for than the one with the biggest fanbase.

The Victory are already popular on the road - but the Derbies, Adelaide and Sydney games have just gone up a notch.

I was sad when Mr Flores left for China, he has so much skill - and then Bernie said Harry wasn't coming. Harry has a fair bit of skill too - although he may yet turn up.

I'm a Celtic fan and although Liam Miller (not so much skill) signed for former Rangers player Fergusons' Perth Glory I wasn't that happy about the stars of the new A-League season - albeit a long long way off.

At first the crowd looked disappointing. But that seems to be the problem with people turning up at game time to buy a ticket. By the time Eric had headed the ball into the back of the net there was a good covering of people across the ground, and they were in full song.
The first 14 minutes were even, then after the goal the ball raced from end to end.

Sydney were value in the first half, pushing hard mainly via Emerton on the left. The ground was wet and at times it seemed to be raining, leading to spectacles like 2 Roar foul throws in a row. However, in the second half Brisbane kept the ball clear of Emerton, and Sydney ran out of steam. The last 30 minutes of the game were not even close as Roar's possession pushed up to 80%.

Adelaide

The first half of the season carried the Reds through to the finals. However, the key was the exit, for the second time, of the brilliant John Kosmina. Kosmina represents the inheritance of 'Adelaide past' and without him there is a question mark.

There are also some questions over owners, commitment and past owners that fans need resolved.

At least we can now focus on the football.
