Went to the Olympic match, they had 4 players out. Apparently one of the players left to go to the club his Dad owns (West Adelaide) and another got a red card in the finals series so a fair effort to hold on for the first half! Hume just showed their class though. Way too good, especially after they rested 5 players in the previous week for this one.

Brisbane Strikers currently 1-0 up against Melbourne City in the first FFA Cup Semi Final!
Long way to go but the Strikers are giving it a real go!

Matt Simon is the biggest flog, must committ at least 4 yellow card worthy fouls per game and the ref continues to over look them

Even if the game is in Adelaide, City should be far too slick and good for an Reds outfit that struggled against a bog ordinary Mariners team.

My tip for the final ? 1-4 to Melbourne.

Jesus it’s preseason as if Adelaide where going at full pace! In any case once the final comes round both clubs will be in full swing and just like most finals go it will be a tight affair, Adelaide to go back to back 2-1 winners!

Not so sure about writing Adelaide off. As much as I hope City can bring it home, you’d think Adelaide, or both sides for that matter, will find some more form with getting to play some competitive football in the next few weeks before the final. City too would have to become the first away side to win a cup final.

Adelaide is probably the most desirable away ground for City to play at for a final imho.

Reckon playing in hostile away crowds at Melbourne Derbies will hold them in good stead as well

Hasn't really helped you in most big games your franchise has played in.

City are perennial underachievers, their team on paper as always looked good but its never translated to on field success. Every club in the league besides Wellington and new comers western united have achieved more

We were no where near full strength against CCM.
No Maria, Boland or Izzo and Opseth will be better with some more games under his belt.
