Victory Leap Into A-League Final

Victory Leap Into A-League Final

For the third time in four years, Melbourne Victory will host the A-League Grand Final on home turf and for the uptinth time, much like a thorn in Sydney’s side Kevin Muscat had a part to play in the misery inflicted on the home side. His clever ball through the Sky Blues defense to Archie...

Predictions – A-League – Finals Series

With the first match of the 2009/10 A-League finals series merely minutes away, I have to admit that this season, at best, I’ve only managed the odd cheeky live stream from my work desk in the middle east and read some pre-match, post-match reports. So today, I ain’t going to harp on about who should...

Predictions – Hyundai A-League Season 5

We’re only an hour or so away from the first match of A-League ver. 5 and already it’s promising to be a cracker of a year!Two new teams in Gold Coast United and North Queensland Fury, new and “unique” kit designs, a host of new faces from local and abroad, ex-socceroos and marquee talent the...

Danny Allsopp…

The F1 GP is getting ready to rip-roar through the city of Melbourne this weekend and there are going to be a load of media shindigs to attend. So why not get in on the action I hear you ask? Well it’ll be hard to beat Melbourne Victory’s favourite lemon, Danny Allsopp, cause like an...

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...

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...

The problem with Victory is…

With one match remaining in Sydney and no chance of making the top four, Melbourne will be reviewing their season and asking themselves how they got it so wrong. Their recruiting at the end of last season and even before this one kicked off was getting praise from pundits far and wide cause they weren’t...
