    Well it was a pretty entertaining round over the Xmas period.
    I'm hoping for more of the same highly watchable football this week.

    Tips:

    Sydney FC vs. Brisbane Roar - 2-1 (15k)

    The sky blues just keep on rolling.
    They are undefeated after 12 rounds (an A-League record)
    Also have only conceded 5 goals which is pretty impressive.
    Roar could give them some issues but i think the home team will outlast them.

    Central Coast Mariners vs. Melbourne City - 1-3 (8k)

    Central Coast need to do something fast to improve their performances.
    They are simply becoming easy beats week in week out.
    Sadly for them i think City have to much firepower and will be desperate to win.
    A must win for City, no excuses.

    Wellington Phoenix vs. Adelaide United - 2-0 (8k)

    Wellington are learning to knock the goals in which is good to see.
    While Adelaide Utd. are going from bad to disastrous.
    With potentially one eye on the Asian Champions League they could struggle on their travels.

    Wanderers vs. Perth Glory - 3-2 (14k)

    This should be an exciting game, Perth have some weapons in Keogh and Castro.
    I think WSW need to make a statement in this one so i've tipped em to win.

    Melbourne Victory vs. Newcastle Jets - 0-0 (20k)

    Victory have been looking ominous lately.
    Emerging as the main threat atm to Sydney.
    Newcastle need to focus on improves their defense.
    A draw would be a good result for them here.
    Could be an easy Victory win though, Jets are so random.

    Hope there are no more homophobic comments about the Victory or any other team, not surprised you predicted a draw and an easy City win.

    We are playing the Mariners though! Still, think you guys will win comfortably, 4-0 or 5-0.

    Error in judgement on my part.
    Will be mindful to be more politically correct in future.

    Also regarding me saying Victory will draw, so what?
    It's just a tip and Newcastle have been decent of late.
    They aren't going to just turn up and not try.

    Are they? Didn't know that..
    They are only 2 wins behind city and ahead of WSW/Perth on GD so they are on the improve.
    On the pitch anyway.

    Well at leased you have acknowledge the mistake, let's move on.

    Victory's form of late has been outstanding but teams like Perth and Newcastle can be tricky if we take them lightly. Newcastle have improved defensibly so if we were to win it wouldn't be by a lot.

    Confident we can get something away to Wanderers. I think the only time we've got a point out in Centrelink-land was a dead rubber after the salary cap affair.

    If we beat the Nix again I think the Board should request that we play them for the remaining rounds. We are poor, and the guys who should be performing to earn new deals are the ones letting us down most.

    Tonight's game looks good, as does the Wanderers v Perth with a fair bit riding on it. Expect the Jets good run to end however they do tend to trouble Victory on more than a few occasions.

    Undisciplined by Brosque as captain.
    Your on a yellow and comfortably leading 2-0 and you kick out at a defender right in front of the ref.
    So dumb and could hurt his team

    Brosque the arrogant campaigner can have an extra game on his suspension for taking 2mins to get off the field last night.

    Yeah that was pretty bad but typical of an Arnold coached side.

    Bloody lucky that's what I call it! That's a match City should be winning, with a days extra rest and the Mariners also played in 35 degrees heat only three days ago lol.

    JVS has lost it! why does he keep playing players out of position? He's the week link the only thing keeping City back imo has always been Mr. Average.

    I know, hate the bloke. If it wasn't for Timmy, Bruno and Kilkenny we would be near CCM on the table.

    Wow not good enough City.
    Pen was definitely there but we were lucky to even escape with a point in the end.

    In saying all of that, CCM actually impressed me tonight.
