    Minor premiers: Brisbane Roar
    Champions: Melbourne Victory (Kewell brace in extra time:p)
    Top scorer: Sergio Van Dijk
    Best Transfer: Marcos Rojas/Liam Miller tie
    Biggest flop (Team): Gold Coast/Sydney (everyone knows GC have lost heaps of players so it won't be a big surprise when they flop- I also reckon Sydney will sack Lavicka by Feb)
    Biggest flop (Player): Fred - won't be a massive flop as such but any expectations of him having as big an impact as his MV days are delusional. He's much older and more importantly the league has improved dramatically since he left.
    Goal of the Year: Carlos Hernandez- if the fat boy stays he'll be banned from the Colonel and will return to form
    Johnny Warren Medal (worth adding I reckon): Thomas Broich

    These things always make you look a fool but fun nonetheless- I reserve the right to change mine right up until kick-off too as there's plenty of squad changes to come before game 1 methinks!!

    Sydney FC
    Gold Coast

    Minor premiers: Adelaide United
    Champions: Brisbane Roar
    Top scorer: Van Dijk
    Best Transfer: Rojas/Smeltz/Williams
    Biggest flop (Team): Sydney FC, because it's what they do best. Very tempted to say Perth, but surely they'll at least finish top six. Gold Coast are obvious.
    Biggest flop (Player): Hernandez, having a trial in the US and then getting banished from the team doesn't bode well for him, imo.
    Goal of the Year: Kewell
    Johnny Warren Medal: Broich

    My prediction is injuries will decide the course of the season. Almost every team has serious depth problems with injuries in one area or the other where even 1 missing player would change the shape and form of the team completely.

    League Table
    1. Melbourne Victory
    2. Central Coast Mariners
    3. Adelaide United
    4. Melbourne Heart

    8. Newcastle Jets
    9. Wellington Phoenix
    10. Gold Coast United

    Minor premiers: Melbourne Victory
    Champions: Central Coast Mariners
    Top scorer: Archie Thompson (minnow bashing antics)
    Best Transfer: Fred, Liam Miller
    Biggest flop (Team): Brisbane Roar (and there front line)
    Biggest flop (Player): Evan Berger, Jason Culina
    Goal of the Year: Who cares
    Johnny Warren Medal: Fred
    Best Young Footballer (U/21): Marco Rojas
