How is it that Guillermo Amor is still the Adelaide United coach after the team’s awful start to the season?
The former NRL CEO, Dave Smith, obviously didn’t plan it exactly this way, but his decision to cut Rupert Murdoch out of the first part of the television rights deal still had the desired effect of getting the game more money when the rest of the deal was eventually done.
I’m not sure if there are any documented cases of people actually dying of boredom, but we might get one this A-League season if we have to watch many more games like the one between Perth Glory and Sydney FC in the round just gone.
Do you have to have Besart Berisha in your team to win the A-League championship? No, but in the past it has helped a lot and already this season it is again clear that if you don’t have him your chances will be significantly diminished.
Western Sydney Wanderers have won two A-League games in a row despite Federico Piovaccari not firing. Coach Tony Popovic says the goals are going to come for the Italian striker, but on his form so far you’ve got to wonder if the Wanderers made a big mistake in signing him.
The first four weeks of A-League football is enough to convince me there is an extremely high degree of probability the champion team will again be one of last season’s top two – Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC.
