With this being the first season for a long time that I actually give a shit, I thought I'd start the thread. I had the misfortune of being at the Heart vs Central Coast game the other night and can't understand how anyone thought it was a good debut performance from the Heart. Other than a reasonably solid effort from the back four, it was a bit of a shambles, with the passing play being VPL quality. I do expect a steep improvement from them as the season wears on, however. Van't Schip is a top coach and the players we have are outstanding for this level. Also had a look at the Victory vs Sydney and Gold Coast United vs Brisbane encounters. To be honest, the main point of interest for me in watching A-League matches is to try and spot future Socceroos. On that note, Mate Dugandzic looks like a real player doesn't he? Small, quick, skillful- he's the opposite of the Australian archetype. With any luck he'll stay in the first team while all their forwards are out with injuries and eventually earn a move to a good European club. Brisbane also stroked the ball around superbly by A-League standards in that game. I haven't watched enough A-League over the years to be particularly well versed about what their players are like, or what their championship chances are, but if they play like that every week I'll make an effort to keep watching them.
