The lets go draw thread!! The Non-Roar A-League games thread. #2
« on: February 26, 2016, 11:11:34 AM »
The old thread got up to 65 pages so thought we'd start a new one!

OK first cap off the rank:

Phoenix v City and WSW v Perth tonight.

2 massive games with plenty at stake.

Phoenix are pretty much playing for pride but a win for City will see them equal on points with WSW and us.
A WSW win in the second game will give get 3 points clear of us and a Perth win will see them leapfrog Sydney FC and Victory into 5th spot on the ladder.

Ideal scenario for us is a Phoenix win and a Perth win by plenty!
A champion is one who gets up when he can't.

So much for "let's go the draw" then. How about "let's go the lower ranked team" instead?

Perth on good odds tonight. Worthy of a speculative lobster.

Barbarouses cops two game ban

Great news for us. Means Ingham or Pain would likely start against us which can only be a good thing.

Hyundai A-League club's fixture run-in

Wanderers (38pts)
To play: Brisbane (A), Jets (A), Adelaide (H), Victory (A), Mariners (H), Phoenix (A)

In the box seat for the Premiership moving into the final six rounds, Friday night against Roar and the home clash against Adelaide in a couple of weeks loom as decisive in deciding who finishes top.



Adelaide (36pts)
To play: Phoenix (A), City (H), Wanderers (A), Mariners (H), Sydney FC (A), City (A)

The hottest team in the A-League are on the back of a 13-game unbeaten run. They have four of the last six away from home ? including that huge battle with the Wanderers ? but confidence is soaring in the City of Churches.



Brisbane (35pts)
To play: Wanderers (H), Victory (H), City (A), Sydney FC (H), Jets (H), Victory (A)

Still right in the hunt despite a recent poor run of form. This Friday?s clash with Wanderers is massive and still to play Victory twice in the run home which could go a long way to determining where each side finishes at the end of the regular season.



City (32pts)
To play: Sydney FC (H), Adelaide (A), Brisbane (H), Phoenix (H), Perth (A), Adelaide (H)

Four of the last six at home is a plus for John van ?t Schip?s troops, starting with a huge battle with the Sky Blues on Saturday night. Have to play the dominant Reds twice in the run in ? including on the final day of the regular season.



Victory (30pts)
To play: Mariners (A), Brisbane (A), Jets (H), Wanderers (H), Phoenix (A), Brisbane (H)

A tricky end to the season for the champions, mixed in with ACL commitments. The home game with the Wanderers in a few weeks will be huge and they will probably need three wins in total to confirm a finals berth.



Sydney FC (30pts)
To play: City (A), Phoenix (H), Mariners (A), Roar (A), Adelaide (H), Perth (H)

Like Victory, a tough period ahead with two campaigns to fight. Two home games to finish the season will be welcome, especially the Round 27 clash with Glory which could be a straight shoot-out for sixth spot.



Glory (28pts)
To play: Jets (H), Mariners (H), Phoenix (A), Jets (A), City (H), Sydney (A)

Their club-record winning run ended on the weekend but momentum still seems to be with Glory. They play the resurgent Jets twice in a month, starting with this Monday, with results in those games very much key to sneaking into the six.



Jets (26pts)
To play: Perth (A), Wanderers (H), Victory (A), Perth (H), Brisbane (A), Mariners (A)

Looked dead and buried a month ago but now eyeing a finals berth. Only play twice at home on the run in which is difficult with the games against Glory (x2) and Victory likely to decide their finals fate over the next month.



Phoenix (22pts)
To play: Adelaide (H), Sydney FC (A), Perth (H), City (A), Victory (H), Wanderers (H)

Finals look out of reach for Ernie Merrick?s side but showed in their win over City they will be a handful over the last six games. Could throw a spanner in the works for a few sides chasing a finals berth with games against Sydney, Perth and Victory.



Mariners (12pts)
To play: Victory (H), Glory (A), Sydney FC (H), Adelaide (A), Wanderers (A), Jets (H)

Only pride to play for over the last six weeks with the club all-but assured of the wooden spoon. But they will have a big say in who wins the Premiership and makes the six with games against the Wanderers and Reds and Victory and Sydney to come while a final round F3 Derby will be a must-win for their success-starved fans.

Adelaide and City still have to play each other twice.... certainly helps us out a little.

At the moment, you'd think the Reds would win both, as they have the more rounded side, both in attack and defence. Melbourne might have signed some good CBs, but for me, they're still a bit fragile, which the Reds will target

City against Adelaide and against us the following week. Very big two games for them.

Looks like Jai Ingham is going to turn out to be a bit more than a squad player. Racking up first team starts for Victory, assisted both goals and drew both yellows from Michael Neil to have Mariners a man down with 45 to play.

He's turning out to be quite a "find" by Kevin.

Let's hope Victory's "squaddie" doesn't return to bite us on the bum next week.

The fact that they picked Ingham up as a mature aged rookie which means he is outside the salary cap and yet still only 22.

What do you mean "outside of the cap" mate?

I guess that's the difference between us and them. They have funds we have none. Plenty of people here are always asking the question about how some teams are not over the cap. Well this is a perfect example. BRFC struggled to reach the minimum amount of the cap you must spend on players at the start of the season.

Well his payments are not part of the 2.55 mil cap. Like a marquee is outside the cap so is a rookie.

And Finsta you just asked it mate. Funny how we were both writing at the same time. I posted something here from the FFA about all the exemptions out side the cap for players a while ago.

So Tommy may be getting paid from the home grown player provision, and the club may be planning to use the cap banking facility next season or the season after.

Sydney out of the finals spots. I think everyone is a Wellington fan this weekend.
