Great squad but I think they're very average this year. Barbourouses saying Muscat's tactic was to let Wellington have possession, but Welly pressed hard and well and that's clearly why they had more possession imo. Nix were clearly the better side for much of the game, but a little bit of quality and a terrible mistake sealed it. Should have started SIngh and Mandi was bloody woeful throughout. Goes to show we're not the only club capable of finding a shit Spanish footballer.

I wouldn’t write Victory off. They were average last season and lifted for the finals series.

Their performance against Phoenix was already better than their last three outings versus Wellington.

The nix movement is great to watch and there domince just before there goal was very good to watch and the goal great reward but just couldn’t do it for the whole game.

Shows how slow and bad at passing we are when you watch these games.

I can see why he didn’t start singh as if it went yo extra time could have been a great move but when you go behind you look stupid. His quality right from the get go was very impressive for someone so young

We should have bought Isias when he was available.

Adelaide v City was a pretty turgid game. City are excellent defensively but have nothing up top. I would be surprised if Joyce is Coach next season.

I wouldn't be. City dont care what the fans would think. I think City had the better shots (of the few there was) last night but Izzo was the difference, based on his saves earlier I can't help but think he might have got a hand to the shot Adelaide finally scored with.

Was just having a think about some of the other teams in the City group they could draw coaches from - Postecoglou is coaching Yokohama...

He was always good in the air like the good saves he made, just struggled with setting walls and set pieces with us. Wasn’t upset to see him have a blinder of a game as always happy to see City fail to meet aspirations.

FFA and commentators all wanted Glory to win, I so wanted AU to upset the party and gee they made a good go of it. Popa’s face when the game was in the balance was priceless. Glory treated the game like their devine right so was good to see them get a good scare, they are beatable and both Sydney and Melbourne would have liked what they saw.

I have a soft spot for Perth dating back to NSL. They were such a well run club and awesome team. Bobby D and Mori up front was excellent

Knew it would be bloody fox.

“An FFA spokesperson later confirmed that the game's broadcaster Fox Sports had requested that side.”
