City only need one point from their remaining two matches to secure the minor premiership and will be gunning for an undefeated season. With Western Sydney Wanderers losing Lynn Williams and Denise O'Sullivan in quick succession, they're up against it tonight, one would think.

Victory needs a point to secure fourth place while Brisbane needs to win and hope Victory loses in order to stay in with a shout of playing finals.

Sydney needs a point from one of its two remaining games to secure home ground advantage for the playoffs, except the grand final.

What have we done to deserve Brantz commentating Sunday afternoon matches? She is awful, when she can be bothered to talk about the action in front of her. Brantz and Harper wasted five minutes talking about the ******* A League team.

What A result!

Set the record for the biggest turnaround from one game to the next. Lost 4-0 to City and then won 7-0, so +11 turnaround.

Dowie had more touches in the first half against Newcastle than she did for the whole match against City. Just demonstrates how far ahead City is this season.

City is just full of all star quality which has almost always been the case since their entry. It’s hard to compare victory playing against the jets and city (a kin to comparing Liverpool with a team at the bottom of pl or top of the championship), but the point does still stand.

It is more a reflection of the quality of the remainder of the league than anything else. City is streets ahead but I think it is a little concerning that Victory could turn around and thump Newcastle on their home patch after being outclassed by City the previous week.

The league is talking about expanding for next season and I think that would be a mistake because I don't think there is enough quality in the league to support two extra teams.

I personally don’t think expanding is a bad idea, especially as they are only suggesting one side, but there needs to be a lot more done in order to create a league that is able to compete with the likes of city (and Sydney and, historically, Canberra). IMO the limited expansion of the league, as well as the lengthening of the competition will assist to some extent (and are both needed, atleast to make the number of teams even). But as you have hinted at, there needs to be an increase in funding from all parties in order to obtain a league that is of quality throughout.
