Sydney thus far looking definitely the best side in it. Beating Adelaide away, thrashing Newcastle, a pretty undershelming lucky win against Wellington and losing a game to wsw they would’ve won 9 times out of 10.

Very early days but they will be hard to stop for the premiers plate.

Will be interesting how successful western united are towards the middle and end of the season, very old side and would be hard to manage, especially against the better sides.

I think premiers plate will probably be a strong battle against sydney, wsw and city or reds

Gee whiz that first half of Wanderers and Roarcelona was as painful as getting a tooth pulled out without anaesthetic.

Lol at Vic-Tree being described as Australian Football Royalty.

Constantly amazes (and annoys) me how much Fox Sports constantly pump up MVFC's tyres (it shouldn't, they are part owned by News Corpse)

Half expecting (wouldn't go so far as hoping) for some brawls between The North End and Westen Ultras (although these A League fights are pretty tame compared to some South Melbourne v Preston Lions games I have been too :) )

1) They've won the most national league titles, which makes them royalty
2) There's no evidence they're part owned by News Corp, certainly not in any large stake
3) Don't you support a club owned by a country that still treats women and LGBTQI people as 3rd class citizens?

Just on your 3rd point, I supported City when they were just poor, tinpot Melbourne Heart, and frankly I am not bothered at all by those so called issues you mentioned, I watch and follow sports to escape unpleasant politics and other unrelated social issues, and frankly I don't care if the Mansour family were like the Manson family.

Frankly i want my English club Leeds to be bought by a rich Shiek from Abu Dubai/The UAE seeing Leeds successful and in the premier League would override any niggling issues I had with those so called human rights issues I might have had (which I don't)

Far more concerned about Climate Change anyway, most sensible football fans really couldn't give a stuff about those issues you raise anyway.

Really looking forward to the World Cup in Qatar as well, it will be somewhere different and very interesting :)

It's called privilege ;)

cracking game, always a worry when your up 2-0 within 10 mins that the opposition is eventually gonna make a come back! Having said that after going 2-0 up Victory just lost shape and let WU control the match way to easily.

I’m fearing we are gonna get over run here.
