City need to have a big 2 games. Unfortunately for them I dont see them coming home with more then 2 points. Wsw are in a roll and are playing good football, and the smurfs are doing what the smurfs do best.

**** Melbourne is going to have a snap 5 day lockdown which means I won't be able to go the City v Smurfs game or its hopefully postponed.

We are sh*t at the moment but I paid for my membership and I still would much rather watch the game live than on TV.

Interesting to see what happens with the Melbourne games. Considering smurfs are already in Melbourne it will likely be behind closed doors.

The Melbourne matches this week will be played behind closed door due to Victoria going in to five day lockdown.

Western United V Sydney FC Saturday 13th February Behind closed doors
Melbourne City V Sydney FC Tuesday 16th February Behind Closed Doors
Melbourne Victory V Wellington Phoenix Wednesday 17th February *Scheduled to be behind closed doors.
*note not sure if the Nix can travel and avoid quarantine, if they can't match will need to be postponed.

Another thing I didn't factor in City are scheduled to play the WSW in Sydney. If they fly out will they be except to return back to Melbourne without quarantine? Or what happens if NSW close the border within the next 24 hours?

Really appreciate the sentimonies dude. FWIW if we (City) had to lose our first Grand Final, I am glad it was you to guys, who have been a class above everyone else in the past few years in the HAL.

Always got time for Luke Brattan too. Class Act.
