With the A-League about two-thirds into its 10th season, the race for the premiership, as well as for a place in the finals, is starting to get interesting.
Marco Bresciano, up there with the most technically gifted Australians to pull on a Socceroos jersey, has recently announced his international retirement, less than a month after winning the Asian Cup.
