lol mate before the season even started!
I ******* hate this season. How hard could it possibly be for the ALeague to update it's own app as soon as fixture changes are made?

And why do I care about Perth on Australia. Victory and Sydney (and possible Victory/Adelaide and Smurfs/Wanderers) are the only rivalries in the A-League that matter (despite what the marketing team tries to tell us.)

Obviously I get all the COVID challenges, but losing this annual game is a huge bummer.

I moved back to Adelaide last year so I'm getting the chance to go watch the Reds play, finally. Watched the 2-0 win over City a couple of weeks ago and I got tickets to the Original Derby for Saturday night with a couple of mates, should be an amazing atmosphere. Always been told Original Derby at Hindmarsh is the closest you'll get to the European experience in Australia.

Bragging about 'rivaries' in such a small competition like The A League strikes me as a bit tinpot tbh.

Suppose it is all Vuck fans can hang their hats on these days, given that their team has seemingly turned to trash and look like being Spoon contenders this season.

I wouldn't go too hard, at least they've got trophies in the cabinet

Best football stadium in the country in Adelaide, 2 great and at times nasty rivals, on field and off.

Yeah.
This.

A packed Hindmarsh on Original Derby day has the best atmosphere, especially if the away end is packed too and covering two bays like a few years ago.

A rocking Sydney Derby would have to be up there in atmosphere, obviously cant say much when capacity is 25% or at Olympic park, but if it was bankwest or kograh it would be something. In regards to Victorian sides, the mix of support and success (and no wandering united home ground) means the OG would be more important from the fans view of Victree
