I think with a 12 team comp where everyon plays each other twice will be much better.Anybody else think this season is 1 round of 9 games too long?
I'm all for playing each team twice.
Seems farcical that we're taking on the duration of EPL when we don't have the depth of personnel, or even the interest, and now we will see finals in MAY!
I don't think Marvel is a possibility. There's footy scheduled there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday that weekend. Probably purposely done by the AFL as well to force a Melbourne based final elsewhereWe most likely finish 6th and play Victory at Marvel Stadium W1 finals.
For that not to happen, we need to win plus Wellington need to lose, and we need to make up a goal difference of 7 to finish one spot above Wellington so we can play Adelaide in SA.
Sounds better to not bust a gut next week and get to face Victory in Melbourne.
Perth could well smash Wellington next week, so it's not a fait accomplis that we finish 6th.
Tbh, the A League season should be well and truly finished by now, including finals.I don't think Marvel is a possibility. There's footy scheduled there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday that weekend. Probably purposely done by the AFL as well to force a Melbourne based final elsewhere
Perth need to beat Wellington by 2 goals for that to happen. Still think it's marginally more likely we have a derby first up.Looking more probable that we will play Adelaide FC on Sunday.
Can't see Wellington pulling off an upset win in WA.
In any case, 5-0 tonight was classy, 5 individual goal scorers.
Wellington aren't in this game so they could surely take the Saturday time-slot which isn't against the Crows (which has 50,000 people attending meaning less at AUFC)
punishment for being so thrashed yesterday?
We should have let CCM beat us. Would have played MV on Fri pm at home, beaten them, Wellington would have had more time to come to Adelaide. The finals fixture was no doubt predicated on an all Melbourne final after Wellington beat us, but both teams stuffed up badly.Farcical again that Adelaide have 5 days to get up against a fresh Perth side. Could have gotten ugly for us even if we did scrape across the line last night
