This weekend’s semi-finals were not only the perfect advertisement for finals football, they were also the reason other codes are scared of the A-League’s potential.
The first week of the A-League finals demonstrated precisely what it is that makes football the most popular sport on the planet.
Perhaps the most sobering reality check for Adelaide United following a gripping final round is that they also won the Premiers’ Plate in the first season of the A-League.
With the destination of the premiership set to be decided on the final weekend of the campaign, it is safe to say this is the A-League season we had to have.
It is indeed “about bloody time” a footballer was honoured with a statue outside Allianz Stadium, as the late Johnny Warren was this weekend.
With three rounds left to play in the A-League regular season, it is clear that the balance of power has shifted away from last season’s grand finalists.
