A-League Round 14 and we have the traditional Australia Day Big Blue clash but this season its important from the wrong end of the table. With both teams struggling it will be a clash to avoid the bottom of the table. In other matches we have the 'Distance Derby' between the Nix V Perth with both teams in form it should be a cracking match. We also have a top four clash between CCM V Wanderers a win for either will cement their top four prospects.

A-League Round 14

Melbourne Victory V Sydney F.C 6:45pm ESDT, AAMI Park

Friday 27th January

I have the feeling will be the final time The Big Blue on Australia Day (least in its current date)

Many players like Luke Brattan have spoken out saying they feel very uncomfortable playing on this contentious and controversial day, and I can honestly understand why.

Sounds like the little pommy brat needs a good talking to, and perhaps a bit more.

It’s not going anywhere mate, having attended this match in the past it’s a coming together of all cultures hence Unite, which is what Australia Day should be about imo. As long as there is an Australia Day public holiday The match will be played on Australian Day. If rat face Brattan doesn’t like it he can chose not to play.

It's not a coming together of cultures, which is the entire point.

What a hit brimmer!
Redmayne exposing his goal a bit too much there.

Good goal by Brimmer but I feel like Redmayne could have comfortably stopped it if he positioning was right.

He has been terribly out of form for most of the season, probably needs to considering hanging up the gloves at season's end

Been a decent game so far both teams have missed reasonable chances.

Who tf is this sideline commentator.

"It's been end to end. It's been a good contest. I think Sydney have been better. Yeah, it's been end to end, a good contest, Sydney have probably had the better of it. The action has been quite end to end..."

Come on mate.

Happy to see Bimbi smiling at the end.

He is a class act.

Unfortunately the Vuck are in the box seat to win another wooden spoon

Yet their club's active supporter group is called "The Cove", and I'm guessing it's not because they also like to sail boats in their spare time. It's named after the landing spot of the invasion, to celebrate it for that very reason.

wow what a result wasn’t expecting that Go Jets!


I do hope they can keep it up. A lot of quality there.

As for Brisbane, probably time to sack Moon or at least abandon the Brexit ball that Fowler started.

Absolutely ridiculous red card for Payne. I have not seen one person say it should have been red. This league is a joke at times.

Pretty good header from David Williams, can't believe he is still in the A League, only inaugural Melbourne Heart squad member still kicking around AFAIK

The last 3 games Dowse has come on and put in numerous brilliant crosses that have turned into goals in each game. The fact that Reuben still refuses to start him is mind boggling.

2 of my mates are trying to argue that the red card for Payne was correct. Both are refs so of course they are going to side with the ref. They are the only 2 people I have seen say it was the correct decision.

I got Paramount specifically to watch Wellington play, but I'm about 1 more call away from giving it away completely. I never thought any comp could match the incompetence of the NRL and its refs.

That's ridiculous that they're trying to justify that call 😒 Amateurs, the lot of them.
