So most ladder positions are set in stone here. Adelaide and Wellington can swap positions, or Wellington and City could swap, as long as Wellington lose horribly and City destroy their opposition. My predictions;

Brisbane 1-2 Adelaide
City 4-0 Central Coast
Newcastle 1-1 Sydney FC
WSW 1-1 Victory
Perth 1-0 Wellington

Will be interesting to see how city treats their game this week. Would they rather win big & risk having to travel in week one of the finals or would they prefer to go easy & settle for a derby final?

I'm not sure whether to cheer or to cry. I had a first date lined up for next Sunday at Hindmarsh... :sob:
But I want the Nix to have the best chance of getting as far as possible hahaha

Well mate you might not have to worry unless you can get a result in Perth, youll be off to Melbourne instead
I thiiiink I'd prefer that, we've drawn a couple of times against them... AND have been competitive.
If Glory win by 1 goal, what becomes the tie breaker?
Goals scored, which we're ahead, I believe..

I know tonight’s game is a dead runner, but the wanderers should’ve had their final H&A match at their new stadium instead of waiting until hosting a team that may not even be promoted to the EPL next season. I expect less than 10k at anz

Confusing post, as I don't think the Vuck are any chance of playing EPL :think:

At a guess, I'd imagine there were a few drivers:

- maybe they couldn't get on the brand new stadium so soon with stadium deals - the Wanderers were quite late to sign on, despite their success being the main reason for the stadium's expansion (they wouldn't have known it'd be ready when the draw was done, but you can move games pretty quickly as the smurfs did with their SCG match vs the Glory.)

- there'd be some logistic issues to do with their membership and assigned seating - although I'm tipping their members would've accepted one-off "come in and sit wherever you like" match if it got them away from this Homebush shithole.

- the main reason I suspect is that they just want to start next season with a bang, with excitement for the new ground, and with a new beginning. It's been such a disappointing, wasted season for them, why waste the new car smell on a dead rubber at the end of this season?

I'm certain they'll open the new stadium from a A-League perspective with a Sydney derby, but after watching the Parra/Wests game last week, I'd be in the queue the morning of ticket sales if it were a repeat of this game to open next season, it looks like it'll become a great away trip.

The rumor is the stadium owners didn't want the rowdy RBB destroying their shiney new stadium seats and facilities upon opening.
Also I believe the Wanderers are going to to have safe standing seats that ain't installed yet so that may have played apart too.
