Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The Brisbane Roar are one of the more successful teams in A-League history. The Queensland side have three championships to their name, while also holding the league record for longest undefeated streak at 36 matches.
After an iffy start to last season, a superb run of form after a season resumed allowed Brisbane to finish fourth. Their finals campaign ended in the first week, however, after they were defeated by newcomers Western United 1-0.
Robbie Fowler’s acrimonious departure as coach, however, means pundits aren’t nearly as hot on the Roar as they were a year ago. They look to be in a scrap to retain their finals place ahead of the new season, with the most likely outcome looking like a lower-table finish.
