No not Web 3.0 bub, it's season 3 of the A-League mon ami. The start of a new season is a time of hope for all football fans, the hope that your team might be the last one standing by seasons end (Sydney FC in my case). A new season is a clean slate where past disappointments are buried into the bitter cold black earth like contaminated waste
Season 3 promises to be the best season yet. Every team in the league has beefed up their squads substantially and there's a distinct Brazillian influence on the league this season so the highlight reel should be jam packed with stunning goals.
Trying to pick a winner based off team rosters is incredibly difficult as many sports writers have pointed out, but like them I'm going to put down my predictions for season three. Here is the table as I see it standing at seasons end:
1. Adelaide United
2. Sydney FC
3. Melbourne Victory
4. Newcalstle Jets
5. Central Coast Mariners
6. Brisbane Roar
7. Wellington Phoenix
8. Perth Glory
I think Adelaide will be the team to beat, I was impressed by their pre-season cup performance and they have individual players who will create headaches for many defenders and goalkeepers.
Tonight kicks off season three with Sydney up against central coast and I'm buzzing with anticipation.
Lets see what $1,000,000 buys Sydney.
My prediction for tonights match is a Sydney win with a scoreline of 3-1. I'm hoping for some Brazillion magic along with a Brosque special.
