Brisbane Roar

Brisbane RoarThe Brisbane Roar are the defending champions of the A-League. Originally known as Queensland Roar, they were forced to change their name following the introduction of the North Queensland Fury and Gold Coast United to the A-League. Despite making back-to-back preliminary finals in 2007/08 and 2008/09, a transitional period under new manager Ange Postecoglou saw the team slip to ninth by the end of 2009/10. However, last season brought about a change in fortune as the club went on the greatest undefeated streak in Australian football history. Following their dramatic penalty-shootout victory over the Central Coast Mariners in the Grand Final, the club extended their unbeaten run to a record 28 matches, and went onto defeat Perth Glory in the 2011/12 Grand Final for consecutive Championship victories. The Roar are now guided by former Gold Coast coach Mike Mulvey, who led them to the 2013/14 title with a 2-1 victory over the Western Sydney Wanderers in the grand final.

MATCH RESULT: An unlikely 3-2 win for Perth sees them on top of the A-League after two games.

Franjic loss outweighs Berisha’s departure

Franjic loss outweighs Berisha’s departure

by , 13 Oct 2014

Having watched Brisbane Roar’s opening game of the A-League, I can’t help but think that in the midst of fanfare surrounding Besart Berisha’s departure to Melbourne, a potentially more vital cog left quietly but may be significantly harder to replace. Over the last few seasons, it has been a common sight to see Ivan Franjic […]

Kurtishi ready to roar for A-League champs

by , 3 Oct 2014

He’s a striker from Albania but don’t confuse Brisbane Roar import Mensur Kurtishi with departed star Besart Berisha. Kurtishi’s arrival at the A-League champions following Berisha’s move to Melbourne Victory has led to the obvious conclusion the 27-year-old will be the man to fill the void. An amazing five-goal haul on Wednesday in the Roar’s […]

Don’t call Albanian striker Mensur Kurtishi the Brisbane Roar’s next Besart Berisha. It may have been the well worn line Mike Mulvey stuck to on Thursday but the Roar coach will get his best indication yet of how Kurtishi will fare following in Berisha’s footsteps during Friday night’s unique double header trial in Brisbane. Kurtishi […]
