Never agreed with a finals series in the A-League. Team who finishes on top are premiers in Europe, why is it different here?

Did Popovic bring Santalab on just so he could play his final game in a GF?

First time attending the soccer. Pretty average game, but enjoyed going, it has a good atmosphere. Disappointing result though.

Even after going goaless though they still had a more exciting attacking game than that other sports team in WA that wears purple

There was a bloke on the train home going on a rant how he doesn't care that we lost because we finished first and thats all that matters and is more impressive lol

Yep Sydney parked the bus . All you need to do in a final .
Yet despite "parking the bus" they should/could have been up 1-0 at halftime. They had to defend, otherwise you open yourself up to conceding goals and in a final that's harder to come back from.

Fox Sports predictably sucking Sydney off.

Perth simply not good enough to get through the wall. Created maybe 3 great chances with two missed and one good save. Needed Keogh on earlier and more balls into the box. Wide triangles did not work. Sydney created 0 shots on target in 120 minutes. Awesome.

Great to see a big crowd for the final but that is the kind of game that puts neutrals off.
