It's the 10th anniversary of the A-League this season, and interest in football in Australia has never been stronger in the wake of a captivating World Cup in Brazil.

At the beginning of the A-League's inception ten years ago, many thought the league would fail to make an impression in Australia's diverse sporting landscape.

Melbourne Victory completed an impressive comeback against Perth Glory that culminated in an extra-time winner to advance to the second round of the A-League finals series. Melbourne were down 1-0 to Perth (it would've been 2-0 had they converted an 87th-minute penalty) until a penalty of their own during injury-time forced the match to extra time, where Archie Thompson scored the winning goal in the 95th minute.

Prediction: Brisbane will qualify for ACL 2 years in a row... probably enough to keep Ange

The top 2 teams plus the winner of the Grand Final go to the ACL. Unless one of these teams is Wellington (New Zealand is not part of AFC). So, if Wellington finish top 2, the 3rd team goes through. This makes it most likely that CCM and Brisbane will represent Australia again next year. Plus one.

Sorry Jets fans, with 4 weeks left I am calling that the top 2, bound for the ACL next year, will come from the top four of Central Coast Mariners (CCM), Brisbane Roar, Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory.
