Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
Melbourne City were introduced into the A-League for season 2010-11 as a rival club for Melbourne Victory, although they were originally known as Melbourne Heart.
City had an up-and-down season in 2017-18, although the long undefeated runs outnumbered the winless streaks as the club finished in third position. After accounting for Brisbane Roar in their elimination final, they suffered a 2-1 loss to the Newcastle Jets in the semi-finals.
While the loss of Daniel Arzani will hurt, a steady stream of promising young local talent is likely to see Melbourne City stay at the top end of the ladder for another season.
