Season 2015-16 of the A-League kicked off on Thursday night with the Wanderers falling 3-1 to Brisbane Roar at Pirtek Stadium. Going off from a cracking opener, it’s time to make some bold, crazy and bizarre predictions.
Each season we predict and wait. Who will be the first coach to go? No sane person would have predicted it to be Mike Mulvey – but if you did then please inform us as to who will be the premiership winner and grand final champion.
“People have been bagging us a lot, but after that performance Australia should be right behind us.”
Brisbane Roar started the season with four straight losses and left many wondering where they were headed. In Round 6 they faced a Newcastle Jets side who should have held Melbourne Victory out the week before.
With each passing week, it begins to get harder and harder for last season’s grand finalists.
Although four rounds have passed, Adelaide United, Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC appear to be realistic title contenders this season, as only goal difference separates them heading into Round 5.
