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.

Brisbane Roar have a new look and a new kit this year, and have bucked the trend to modernise team logos and uniforms by donning a more traditional kit.

MATCH RESULT: Brisbane Roar become just the second team in A-League history to start a campaign with three consecutive losses after suffering a 0-2 home defeat at the hand of Sydney FC. The only other team to hold that dubious honour is the now defunct North Queensland Fury. Last season’s champions appear to have a […]

Roar as strong as ever, says Stefanutto

by , 24 Oct 2014

Vice-captain Shane Stefanutto has denied the winless Brisbane Roar are missing Besart Berisha and Ivan Franjic, claiming the A-League champions are as strong as ever. The Roar have given up leads to stumble out of the blocks in their title defence, losing to both Adelaide United and Perth Glory. And that places them under some […]

MATCH RESULT: An unlikely 3-2 win for Perth sees them on top of the A-League after two games. It didn’t look pretty but they’ll be happy after coming from behind twice to beat reigning premiers Brisbane. Where to next for Brisbane? They were much improved on last week but couldn’t put the game to bed […]

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 […]

Roar were hard done by: Mulvey

by , 13 Oct 2014

They may be a “no excuses” team but Brisbane Roar coach Mike Mulvey found it hard to stick to the team mantra after a horror start to their A-League title defence. Matt McKay was sensationally sent off in the 72nd minute before Henrique was controversially denied a stoppage time penalty as Brisbane were upset 2-1 […]
