Christmas cheer is spreading all over the Hyundai A-League - mainly because everyone-s in such a great mood when they get their copy of Australian Football Weekly in their hands. Thanks Santa!

Sydney FC will certainly be glad to see the end of 2010 after a nightmare title defence, but striker Mark Bridge says the Sky Blues will not stop fighting while there-s still a chance of finals football.

He-s been a rock at the back for Central Coast Mariners but hunky Dutchman Patrick Zwaanswijk is ready to use all his experience to push Arnie-s men to finals glory.

Red-hot Brisbane Roar striker Jean Carlo Solorzano tells us why he loves Australia, what he really thinks of Ange Postecoglou and why he wants to get Roar into the Asian Champions League.

It was a comeback to forget for Matthew Kemp but the Melbourne Victory fullback says he-s a stronger player than ever, and ready to push Victory into the finals.

He-s the main man, the top conductor, the Czech maestro - North Queensland Fury boss Franz Straka explains to AFW why a football team is a big family and why he-s not the type to sit on his chair.

No one in the A-League knew who Rini Coolen was before this season; now he-s turned Adelaide United from wooden-spooners into title challengers - but the Dutchman isn-t finished yet.

Think that-s all your presents? Ha haa, we-ve still got more - the best (and worst) signings of the EPL season, a fascinating insight in growing up with Diego Maradona and South America-s next football genius, and why Seb Ryall really needs a Chinese burn. That-s enough to keep even Tiny Tim going this festive period!
