Probably not big with the SN crew, but this guy is the real deal. With UK 1.5 Billion pounds on the pitch (Liverpool v City, great game also) he totally shone

Awesome eh Blackers. Thoroughly enjoying this. Great to see Heyman absolutely dominating at 35 y//o. Legend. And Mary just doing what Mary does.
Hopefully a record is broken in the second half!

For all the silly white barstards,A league Mens and women's are getting towards final half dozen or so games in the race for Premiers plates.Over the weekend the 2nd placers both won and in Mens it took the centralCoasties to top of the ladder,In Women's 2nd beat 1st to narrow the gap to 2 points.

In Mungo ball the mighty SAINTS(11 in a row, never before, never again) sit top of the ladder( wont stay there too long but wont get the WOODy either).

A league women's first past post(premiers) melbourneCity.sydneeeeFC bottled it in last game which they had to win(lost 4-0) but still came 2nd.Playoffs soon to decide which teams play these 2 in sem..eyeFinals

A league mens have 5/6 games to go .Wellington 3 points ahead of central coast, forget the rest ..these 2 are by far the most consistent.

7/45 TenBold..Sydney derby tonight, it will be hard fought with both teams needing a win to consolidate a place in playoffs...I favour FC as they have been more consistent after a terrible start and bringing in a new coach who has done a good job so far...

Both teams are robbed of 2 GOOD players each who are on olympic team duty @ Asian Cup in Qatar....FC have the better replacements but its THE derby and 3rd of the season with one win each...A draw wont surprise me and Yellow and RED cards come out in this fixture....looks like a 30K crowd and the RIOT SQUAD will be there...Active support require wristbands as well...thats to identify the naughties who go to the wrong end and cause BOVVER!

Well yesterday concluded the A league mens premiership rounds bar a catch up game on Wednesday night that will decide first place and the premiers(first past post).At present Wellington PhoeNIX are a point in front of central Coasties mariners who play Adelaide at Gosford and require a point(draw) or 3(win) to win the premiership.If Adelaide win, the NIX win the premiership plate.

T he top 6 playoffs begin next weekend with a Melbourne Derby, Victory host City and In Sydneeee its home advantage to FC versus the MacArthur Bull shitters.Losers get ready for mad Monday.NIX and Coasties play the winners over home and away legs to decide the teams in the grand final.

The A league Women's GF is Melb City versus Syd FC in Melbourne this Saturday arvo at Aami park.

Gosford on Wednesday night will be a big atmosphere with Adelaides Irakunda last game in A league before he joins Bayern Munich in Bundesliga next season.

Congratulations to Sydneeee FC winners of the ALW Championship grand final.

BUT, a SUPER congratulations to the CCoast Mariners.WINNERS of the Asian club CUP and the A$ 2.3 million.

That's two trophies in less than a week for CCM, a team with no stars just hard working Tryers who never give in.One player who is marginal in the Australian squad.

Saturday nights RED card to a McArrfa player certainly killed their chances in the first elimination game for A league men.FC ended up 4-0 winners.The red card rule at times is highly ?????

Yesterdays Melbourne Derby was a CRACKA...Victory had a RED around 30 mins, so when full time came at 90+ injury time some pretty tired boys.

Score was tied at 1-1 which meant another 15mins each way THEN penalties if it was still even...

THE SHOOTOUT was extraordinary .Paul IZZO(after saving a penalty in the first half of normal time) rose to the occasion and made himself an A league legend.SAVED 3 dotshots to give Victory the VICTORY!...Never before in an A league penalty shoot out has there been 3 saves in the regular set of 5 kicks to each team.

So the Mens A league now moves into the 2 legged Home/AWAY(wont be a soap opera!) semi finals.

Friday night at Alliance its FC v Mariners...7pm..Fourth versus first on ladder

Sunday arvo around 3ish at AAMI its Victory versus Wellington phoeNIX...3rd versus 2nd on ladder.

So its down to the 4 best teams to play for the DunnySeat(some shit could go down along the way).

Bluey its a shame the W A league is so poorly attended when the Matildas sell out weeks before (but they are flavour of the season in recent times...)

In Europe, they do much better crowdwise thats why most of our big stars are over there.

BTW, supposed to be 2 new teams in Mens A league next season...Auckland are definately coming in...They are owned by the Yank who own Bournemouth in the EPL

Canberra too, but details are scarce on them

A league action tomorrow starts in NZ...4/30 tomorrow(sat) arvo

NIX v Melbourne Viccos...2nd leg and aggregate stands 0-0,,,both teams haven't lost much but home crowd could get Wellington over the line.Melbourne have their best player suspended.

IN GOSFORD, @ 7/45 Sauce bottle stadium should be heaving...Every dog and their humans will rock up...Mariners are up 2-1 on aggregate and Sydney FC dont have their best player.

Right now Mariners are reigning Champions( from winning GF last season) reigning premiers( first past post this season) and 2 weeks ago won the Asian Club Cup and they have achieved this on the lowest budget in the comp.

Soccah is unpredictable but it will take something extraordinary for the two home teams not to meet in the GF.

The highest placed winner hosts GF, so Sydney FC finishing 4th cant host.

Early Monday morning 1 am east coast time, the Pommy premier league plays their last round...
ManCity are 2 points ahead of Arsenal and both at home against mediocre teams.Liverpool cant be beaten for ThURD spot with Villa in 4th.

Tottering Cold SpursY currently 5th after bottling the chance to get 4th mid week.Lotsa spice in North London...SpursY fans supporting against their team because they didnt want Arsenal to have a better chance of winning the league. SpursY coach Ange Lose alot Lou abusing fans(from sideline during game) for abusing him, then going to the press conferences and saying everything smells at SpursY club...Too much Souvlaki influence might be the reason?

6th 7th 8th Chelsea,NewyUnited and ManUP united are likely to finish in that order.

Back on A league...News from WestSydney Wandering minstrel is that MarkoRudan coach has opted out so he can care for his ill mother.Hes got a middle of the road record so thats a shame for Westys And WayneBennet wont be applying for the job!Hes going South.

BIG NEWS is a marquee player, captain of McARFFA Bullshotters...Ulyseees Davila is being charged as part of a match fixing scheme.I dont know much about it but I bet on games so,hes probably cost me...KOONT!

Some big exhibition games coming up in Melbourne too...TotteringColdSpursy are playing Newcastle Brown united...EPL top end teams...Newcastle also play a A league ALL stars Mens selection and Arsenal women's team will be playing A league women's ALL stars...the Arsenal women have 3 Matilda players amongst them..

A league games are on TenBold

Ive just recently read who the 2 players the Mexican bribed...almost fell over(even though I was sitting down)...I know the younger bro of one of them...He would be very embarrassed and concerned.I'm not going to ask him anything about the incident because he probably doesn't know.I reckon he would be in shock.

So, two exciting semi final 2nd legs done and dusted.

Melbourne Viccos,victorious in Wellington 2-1 after extra time.Wellington got it to 1-1 30 seconds from end of normal time.So the almost 34000 crowd got value for the ticket price.

Ryan Teague man of the match for 2nd week in a row.Fist year in A league but was captain of Australia at the U/17 Brazil World Cup around 5 years ago.

In Gosford..0-0, so the 2-1 win to Central Coasty mariners(first leg) carried then through to being host of next weeks GRAND final.

So next week, the CCM are defending their win from last year and going for a TREBLE which has never ever been achieved in the A league era(happened once in the part timers NSL days)

Next week, marks Victory coach TonyPopavics 5th GF, he hasn't won one.Home ground advantage and history are on the CCM side

It was biggest game ever for the NIX and yeah...unlucky not to score from what ISNT ever a penalty...refs have it wrong,I think the rule says if the ball hit the body and bounces onto arm/hand then cant award a dotShot....Agree, very entertaining game and worthy of extra time.Nix supporters would be so disappointed.No fairyTale this season.

Baccus, the elder is/was near end of his usefulness at A league level...I dont know if he had a contract for next season or not, he was looking at doing a day job in near future anyway..

Davila on the other hand was a Marquee player..over 600,000 a season and probably 1 millionthish...he had 2 seasons to run on his contract.

They've sold some tickets too....Even though its on TV live at 7/45 TenBold...A fat greek bloke coaches one of the teams.I think they are called TotteringHam something.Apparently not real good, haven won the comp for over 60 years.

But I do believe they are 2nd best team in North London, just edging out Barnet.

They go to any sport,lol...no waves to ride, have to do something in that BlackHole that Andrews dug.

I read, lots of places it was a sell out meaning 100k...it was officially 78,400odd....pretty dead atmosphere from the 11 Aussie based supporters groups...more atmosphere in a Victory home game(15000)..The game lacked intensity of a cup tie or a 3 pointer...BORING...On Friday night the A league selection play Newcastle, I'm hoping that is a good game.

Good one Bluey, I was disappointed he didnt play...But I can understand Ange giving the two back up keepers game time...I "think" the Vicar(io) played every game(?) during the season, hes mostly good but got found out a bit on set pieces(as did the SpursY defence.)

Last nights AllSTARS games had a high note and a LOW one....

Womens game competitive Arsenal 1-0 over the female selection who hadn't had any match time for a while and hadn't played together before(pal;y against each other)...a good exhibition with a crowd that got to 42000.

In the mens division it was Newcastle under 21s against the A leagues up and comers blended with some hardened Pros...8 zip was a total embarrassment and probably a major disappointment for NU fans.

Tonights A league BIG ONE should be a good game...
