Melbourne Victory – 2008-09 Champions

I know it’s a little delayed and by now everybody knows that Melbourne Victory beat Adelaide United 1 – 0 in front of a near capacity 53, 273 fans at the Telstra Dome Etihad Stadium… but I thought I’d post it anyway. It was a little disappointing to see that the red-cards dished out in...

Prediction – A-League Grand Final

Sugar coat it any way you like, it’s still not going to make Adelaide United play any better or bring a trophy to South Australia… 5 games this season alone have proven that! Unfortunately I won’t be watching this match (I know, tell me about it!)… instead, I’ve got a dirty weekend* planned in a...
Adelaide make the A-League final! WTF!?

Adelaide make the A-League final! WTF!?

I have to admit, I’m bloody surprised that Adelaide were able to pull this result out of their arses, especially after the week they just had… and especially cause Fabian Barbiero drilled home the winner. Queensland Roar were clearly the better team on the night dominating play, possession and oportunities but failed miserbly every time...

Prediction – A-League Finals

Adelaide United will want to put the last fortnight behind them, most notably the 6-0 aggregate romping they were given by Melbourne and especially the much publicised and scrutinised outbursts by their coach Aurelio Vidmar.Queensland Roar on the other hand are quietly sitting back like a vindictive teenage girl planning on how to make her...

Review – A-League Finals

If you thought Adelaide’s season couldn’t get any worse, you either need to watch the highlights below or think again! They must have seriously pissed off some afterlife gods or some shit cause the nightmare only seems to continue. It wasn’t enough that they were punished 5-0 on aggregate against Gamba Osaka in the ACL...

Prediction – A-League Finals

Archie Thompson knows a thing or two… or 5 about finals football yet even though this isn’t the actual final, the Victory are pretty sure they have one foot in it already… and possibly one hand on the prize too.As it stands so far, Adelaide have only manged to score 2 goals in four matches...

Review – A-League Finals

Danny ‘The not so lemon’ Allsopp, managed to give Melbourne a great advantage going into next weeks major semi final and heap yet more misery on Aurelio Vidmar’s men. Gees, who’d a thought that Australia’s most successful club team (Adelaide… all though some would argue Melbourne or Sydney), would be struggling so much come the...

Predictions – A-League – Finals Series

Everyone’s favourite time of the A-League season is here! It’s a time when grown men are likely to become morons, when heroes car quickly turn to villains (and vice-versa), and when Prime Ministers heads are kissed and the nation laughs!Yeah you know it, I’m talking bout the A-League finals series… Aww shit! Central Coast v...

Review – CWC – Al Ahly 0 v 1 Adelaide United

Cristiano’s scored a world class strike and it was enough to secure Adelaide United fifth spot in the Club World Cup and pocket the team the $2.16m prizemoney up for grabs. When asked about it later, Cristiano said: I had two chances and scored one goal which was good but the important thing is that...

Prediction – CWC – Adelaide United v Gamba Osaka

I watched the match that Adelaide played against Waitakere United the other day and I felt it my duty to apologise to the poor people that had to sit through one of the most excruciating match I’ve ever seen… please don’t mind the pins poking out of my eyes, I had to soften the pain...

Review – Adelaide United 0 v 2 Gamba Osaka

Congratulations are in order as Gamba made Adelaide look below average for the second time in two weeks and while doing so won themselves a piece of silverware, reminiscent of treasure you’d find in ancient Egypt, to add to their trophy cabinet. It’s a pity Adelaide couldn’t live up to the massive task laid out,...
