Brisbane Roar

Brisbane RoarThe Brisbane Roar are one of the more successful teams in A-League history. 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, 2010-11 brought about a change in fortune as the club went on the greatest undefeated streak in Australian football history, starting a 36-matche unbeaten streak which ran right the way up to the grand final, which they won on penalties against the Central Coast Mariners.

Once the streak was over, Brisbane went on a five-match losing streak, but turned their fortunes around by claiming their second-straight grand final victory against the Perth Glory in 2012.

Once Postecoglou left to coach the Melbourne Victory, the Roar still enjoyed success, winning the 2014 grand final 2-1 against the Western Sydney Wanderers under new manager Mike Mulvey.

Brisbane is currently coached by John Aloisi, who led them to a third-placed finish in 2015-16 before losing their semi-final against the Wanderers in extra-time, 5-4.

2015-16 season: 3rd, lost in semi-finals

2016-17 squad: Michael Theo, Jamie Young, Luke DeVere, Daniel Bowles, Corey Brown, Jade North, Jack Hingert, Matt McKay, Thomas Broich, Dimitri Petratos, Jamie Maclaren, Shannon Brady, Tommy Oar, Brandon Borrello.

Coach: John Aloisi
