    Apparently there's some question marks over Berisha at the moment. May miss the ACL game.

    4.80??????? Didn't think we'd be that short. There are a hell of a lot of Glory fans going over. Most flights booked up, away end tickets were hard to get hold of too.

    I want Perth to win for the underdog story, but I think Brisbane comfortably.

    We were knackered after 70 minutes on Saturday and still held on so this weekend we'll be even more knackered against a side that will be far more sharper, I just hope we can hang on and at least make it interesting. Andrezinho has a quad or hip problem and might not start which might be a blessing in disguise as he's been average the past couple of games. I just hope Pantelidis is ok, he came off too and is far more important...never thought I'd say that even 6 months ago.

    At those odds I'm definitely thinking of putting $10 on the glory, would make a win even sweeter :)

    Either way, what a season, and I'll be proud of the Glory either way. Any guesses at attendance? I'm thinking maybe 30,000

    I'd love to see Perth do it, but there's a gulf in class there.

    3-0 to the Roar.

    Should be a sell-out. Brisbane is a bit of an events city, like Sydney. Anything less than 40-odd thousand, and I'll be really disappointed.

    I'm not a Glory fan. But I wouldn't see a Perth win as a giant surprise. They're coming off some enviable form, have an awesome striker, and some belief. Brisbane, however, are an awfully solid side with the confidence of a home ground, a week off, and the fact they're one of the greatest domestic football sides in Australian history.

    Will Inglewood Utd. be showing the game again? This week I want to go somewhere to watch it. Maybe they'll show it at nib?

    They'd be mad not to have a showing. Great opportunity for a family day out for those who couldnt get over to QLD

    You mean the Inglewood Hotel? A few places will be showing it. Most 'vocal' fans will be at the Elephant, Inglewood is a good venue for it though.

    Seven shades of excited for this game. I reckon Brisbane will win it but Perth won't go down wondering what could have been. Let's just hope it's as good as last year.

    Anything less than a sellout is a failure for the sport in this country. No excuses.

    Got tickets today, although being too slow for the Brisbane end I managed to get tickets in the Perth section. On the ticketek site you needed a password for the pre-sale for Perth seating, guessed it first time! It was "glory" haha so got a ticket for $28, close to the front. Bargain!

    C'mon the Roar!

    Well what a game against CCM!! Not sure we were the better team but we've escaped with the win against all odds!

    It's been a roller coaster season and the GF appearance comes as a reward to all those passionate Glory fans who turn up week in, week out.

    I'm super super excited for the big one, and came very close to heading to Brisbane, but unfortunately I won't be making the trip :(

    I reckon those odds are about right, Glory come in very tired but hopefully this can be offset by Brisbanes ACL match on Wednesday!

    Here's hoping for a Glory win, god we deserve it for all the years of shit we've put up with!!
    Glory 2-1 to cap of a fairy tale run.

    HW HW HWFG!!

    nah, Inglewood Utd. were showing the game on a projector. I have foxtel so I can watch the game from home but I want to enjoy it with some other people. I'd go to the Elephant, but I'm under 18 and I doubt my Dad would take me.

    Can you grow a scruffy beard by Sunday to fool them? ;)

    My brother's just turned 17 and can get a good one going in a couple of days. Pity its tinged with ginger though.
