Hyundai A-League Round Six Review
Melbourne Heart v Brisbane Roar Oh how the mighty have fallen! Champs one year, chumps the next, there is nothing nice to say about the Roar-s performance against the Heart.
Rado Vidosic-s men were carved up and served up on a plate as John Aloisi-s men belted four past them, Rado Vidosic is held in high esteem, but his players need to suck it up and play football for 90 minutes after that performance.
Newcastle Jets def Wanderers FC It was always going to be tough for the Wanderers to contain the Jets and at the end of the match it showed they just couldn-t quite deal with the two-pronged attacking duo of Heskey and Griffiths.
Both netted for the Jets and were ultimately the difference in this match,
Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory The result of this one saw a coach argue with fans and then quit his job the next day, placing Sydney FC into club in crisis mode.
Melbourne though are on the up and up and proved that weight of possession can turn a game, even when you-re down by 2 with 15 to go, Archie Thompson was herculean and seems to be getting better with age.
Wellington Phoenix v Central Coast Mariners The Mariners are rolling on with their heads held high and it-s Danny McBreen who is doing the damage, again he struck the blow that gave the away side the points and he is becoming prolific.
Rogic was the provider and he was lively throughout, in contrast the Phoenix offered very little in attack and that has to be a concern for Ricki Herbert-s slumping side.
Adelaide United v Perth Glory The top of the table battle lived up to its top billing and when the final whistle blew the points were shared in a one-all draw.
Both sides had their chances to snatch a late winner, but perhaps the best chance fell to former Red Travis Dodd, who blazed over the bar from close range.
What the game told us is that both sides are genuine contenders and can play very attacking football, they-ll both be in the Premier-s Plate race for a long way.
