I need to be more negative. Next week I am writing a piece death knelling the entire league, in fact, the country itself.

What would each A-League club's 2018-19 season song be?

In response to my own article……..yes they did!

Did Sydney FC just scare the heck out of Perth Glory?

Perth? Victory? CCM? Could be all really.

Didn’t that win Eurovision?

What would each A-League club's 2018-19 season song be?

Neither had I. Bad song actually….got nothing on ‘Con te Partiro’.

Someone suggested ‘Loser’ by Beck. But that is harsh and unfair. No football fan would ever insult a fan of another club!

I liked the Muscat one! Where is he off to I wonder!

In fairness I changed it. Better not death knell him although I wonder where they are at in talks. But we will both remember the prophecy.

I do not love John Aloisi, although he does have a nice head of hair. I felt the tone I used around him was a little negative in the piece; as though the first two years were just a mask for what was to follow. Did I not?

Have just contacted my source who informed me six weeks ago that Babbel would not be resigned. Now it appears he may indeed stay. Still negotiating, but some of the late season wins obviously put him back in the frame. I’ll adjust the sentence to reflect that more accurately.

One for the ages?

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Grand final

Undoubtedly. Always remember, I bet against my tips. Negatively gearing 107 properties right now!

I agree. Unprofessional in my view.

Meredith. He doesn’t even attempt to hide it. The other side isn’t even on the pitch in his view.

Bosnich is a Mariners fan. Always speaks highly of them.

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Grand final

I’m tipping who I think will win the game. Last week I tipped Victory because I thought they would win. This week, I feel Sydney might be too strong.

Talk about don’t get your hopes up! Back them in Jordan.

Spot on Tom. I accidentally typed the converter rather than the scorer. Thanks for the pick up. Have changed it now.

Magic Round puts a hex on Manly and the Panthers

Fair point. Clearly was probably expecting something far better yet his son hasn’t helped him much at all. Nor has anyone else. Problems so deep, it is hard to know where to start. I guess, completions, ball control and kicking game. Although I’m sure they talked about that all week!

Magic Round puts a hex on Manly and the Panthers

I noticed that Tamou tackle particularly. I’m not a big fan of his and frankly, Campbell-Gillard is similar. They both lack the punch and grit of a Graham, Vaughan or Taupau. I’d take a stack of front-rowers before I went for either of the Panthers’ big men. Dog can win this one The Barry, if they don’t …….look out!

Magic Round puts a hex on Manly and the Panthers

I think you are correct R N and that first half performance was one of the worst of the season in my view.

Magic Round puts a hex on Manly and the Panthers

Fair comment I say. Although the win alone might make things a little better around the place after such a chaotic couple of weeks. Milford with a little more freedom without Nikorima there?

Ain’t that the truth!

The Roar’s A-League team of the season are Johnny Warren Medal contenders

Bart is the MVP in the league in my view. Bautheac is a loon but great to watch. Moments of genius and moments of madness. A bit Matt Simon-like!

I lolled at that. The City v Adelaide 0-0 took the honours for testing my patience this season.
