The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 25

Their best quality is that they scare the heck out of every other side in the competition. Everyone fears the Storm and that is a great card to have in the deck each week. They can be beaten, but something near the perfect game is required.

Cleary Inc. still looking clunky as the Titans fly the flag for Queensland

I agree in regards to Slater and Cronk. A lot now rests on Croft’s shoulders. He needs to keep developing for the Storm to threaten deep into the finals. I think he will. He is another in the long line of Bellamy stars that just keep on coming. Hughes showed a lot in attack last night. What an amazingly consistent and high performing team.

Choked on my gluten free muffin when I read that headline Mike. You old stirrer you!

Do the Western Sydney Wanderers still have fans?

In your opinion, which you are entitled to.

Me too. And a tax deduction!

So free speech out the window again?

100% Brumby Ross. I am in the same boat as you. However people choose to live their life is their right and not one to be judged by others. If an overarching deity eventually tells them that they lived a life of depravity and sin, fine, they can deal with it then. I’m not sure how much arrogance it takes to assume that judgemental pedestal, but Folau appears to assume it quite regularly.

“In a pluralistic society we should be tolerant of others opinions”, but not apparently tolerant of peoples personal lifestyles? None of Folau’s opinions have been censored. Social media allowed him to say exactly what he wanted. Reaction is not censorship.

Let’s not bring facts into it Piru, Glenn was on a roll!

How many times do we need to explain this to people?

I’m not sure which is more alarming; Folau’s actual comments, or the rather weak defence of them mounted by some. Cite minority, left or whatever term you like, Israel Folau is a proponent of hate speech towards a considerable percentage of society. Yes he has the right to his view, just as he has the responsibility to face those who feel he is an ill-informed, red-necked zealot.

I’ll be at the derby Jordan and will make every attempt to bring it to life. Watch for me on the telly. I’m planning something big!

Their turn to win Waz. They are unloved this week. It must happen!

So the use of the words idiot, fools, unreliable, foolhardy and irritating, nor the irony of the last line didn’t tip you off to the tone? Far from a whimsical intention.

I bet on the A-League. I’m an idiot

So much for the loss to the Bulldogs being an aberration. Really poor footy from both sides really. Marsters’ weetbix must taste awful this morning.

My goodness, Jordan picked the Glory? No way. If they lose this one I might walk to Bourke!

Why can’t everyone on the planet be as good spirited as you Stevo?

Perth Glory 0 Melbourne Victory 2: Just a speed bump in the run home?

Agreed!

I’ll tip my hat if they fill Optus. That’s about 50 thou right?

Perth Glory 0 Melbourne Victory 2: Just a speed bump in the run home?

Just a joke Nemesis. I’m always a day behind. I’ve been to the ‘g’ a few times and found it awful. A great stadium, yet awful to sit in, view and relax.

Perth Glory 0 Melbourne Victory 2: Just a speed bump in the run home?

I don’t think Victory could fill the MCG. I would just like to hear the outcry from the local public.

Perth Glory 0 Melbourne Victory 2: Just a speed bump in the run home?

I’d like to see;

Sydney – ANZ
Glory – Optus
Victory – MCG (ha)
Phoenix – Westpac
Adelaide – Adelaide Oval
City – Punt Road

The conveniently located SCG no doubt. Hope the rugger boys aren’t on it a few days before.

That was a cracking crowd on Saturday. Were you there Jordan and if so, what was it like?
