Brisbane Roar secured their second A-League title on the bounce on Sunday evening, though the manner in which they did so will make your mind swim as your synapses struggle to comprehend the weapons grade 'what the f**kity' on show.

With the score level at 1-1 and the last few seconds of normal time ebbing away, Brisbane striker Besart Berisha blustered through the Perth area to find himself clean through, swung his leg at a bobbling ball, missed entirely and then fell on his arse to cap off the show.

MLS 2012, Week 9: Power Rankings

A lot of moving this week in the Power Rankings. The four tiers are starting to fill out a little differently than in the previous weeks.

The top tier gained a team while the second tier lost two sides (though they did gain a couple newbies as well). The bottom tier is still a total mess. Teams 13-18 are just a toss up and I totally understand any argument for anyone being higher/lower than they currently are.
