Rini Coolen has the right to feel hard done by after being sacked by Adelaide United this week because, after signing with the Reds for the start of last season, statistics suggest he could have expected to keep his job until at least Round 24. Not quite two seasons, but nearly.

Adelaide United’s implosion climaxed on the weekend with the return of experienced gaffer John Kosmina to the coaching ranks.

When I heard that Adelaide United coach Rini Coolen had been replaced by former manager John Kosmina, I was stunned. I could only ask, what did the Reds’ club board do that for? Did Kossie just happen to be walking down Manton Street at the right moment and someone called him over to?

It was the week everyone was waiting for: an A-League coach was sacked – but it wasn’t Mehmet Durakovic – and Brisbane played the Mariners, but didn’t win. A very interesting week in the A-League, and as usual there was a lot to talk about.

So John Kosmina, a man fond of dust ups and discussing the mentally unstable, is back in the coaching game.

Most would have heard by now that the Adelaide Reds have stood down the under-siege Rini Coolen. In a rare move the club has decided to keep Rini at the club and have appointed him their youth team duties.

Another interesting week in the A-League. With the champions on the slide, the league is heating up. And a number of teams are stepping up to show the league is no longer a one-horse race.

So Harry Kewell has his first A-League goal and Mehmet Durakovic retains his job for another week. Good news for Melbourne Victory fans but what’s going on at the A-League’s real problem club?

Has Rini Coolen kicked a black cat or smashed a few mirrors in the past six months, because Adelaide United seems to be lurching from crisis to crisis.

There are multiple prisms through which to perceive this match; a ‘relegation’ scrap for one, a grudge match between former colleagues (on the pitch and in the dugouts) another, a double Dutch affair, perhaps even a fight between the two highest paid and most ‘underperforming’ managers in the league.

Adelaide United coach Rini Coolen knows a home turf draw with the A-League’s only winless club isn’t a big result.

As I write this, the fifth round of the A-League is yet to be completed, but what we know for certain is the two teams managed by Dutchmen will be occupying the bottom two spots of the table by round’s end.

Adelaide United coach Rini Coolen rates Harry Kewell a special player, but hasn’t ordered special treatment for the Melbourne Victory drawcard.

His A-League return has barely made a ripple compared to the arrival of star Socceroos teammates but Jon McKain could prove as good an acquisition as any, according to Adelaide coach Rini Coolen.

A third of the way into last season, Rini Coolen was being hailed as one of the best managers to ever grace Australian shores. The team he inherited from Aurelio Vidmar was 10 games into what would become a record streak of 13 games unbeaten.

How ironic that Graham Arnold is one of the safest coaches in the A-League. The former Socceroos tactician is well ensconced on the Central Coast, but the same can’t be said for some of his managerial rivals, who are under pressure before a ball has even been kicked.
