Big week for the Brisbane. Depending on their results, they'll be contending at the top - or in a scrap for a spot in the 6....

City pushing for a break towards the premiers plate, CCM trying to get moving again (3 points from their last 5 games).

Interesting game for 0-0. Nix probably needed the 3 points to keep pressing the top 6.

Adelaide go second, can stay there if Sydney, CCM and Roar all lose....

Both teams next play..... Melbourne City away
They f’ed it up, plain and simple. Oh well. Time to put everything into our two NZ games and then focus on next season.

City can pretty much are up the Premier's Plate tomorrow if we can beat Brisbane imo.

Been an extraordinarily brilliant season from my boys, especially after a sluggish start to the season.

Rudan might be in trouble after this match. 4-0 down against WSW and looking very disinterested. He’s escaped criticism so far but WU are looking bog ordinary considering their list.

Whole club feels like a shambles at the moment really.
I can’t see WU surviving in Melbourne for to long at this rate especially without a home. Maybe a relocation in future Geelong/Tassie or Canberra. Clearly it’s not working and Melbourne is to saturated for them to make any inroads as Gypsies.

Ridiculous decision. Never a penalty.
Never seen an incident like it, then to have a similar incident crop up in the city game with another goal scoring opportunity (except the defender headed in to the attackers arm). - wait all day for a bus then 2 arrive.

Thankfully VAR decided to let the goal stand - Robbie Slater said "I want the right outcome over consistency". Decision yesterday was cactus - glad VAR didn't double down on their stupidity
