No rest for Jets!

Let's hear it for the A-League. The A-Leagues worst club in Season 4, the Newcastle Jets, has made it into the last 16 of the Asian Champions League with a strong display of tactical and technical football

And they've been playing some great football in Asia. Why?

Because in Korea last night they didn't have to play on an Aussie cow Rugby League ground, and as a result they played, once again some wonderful football

And having started their current season in August 2008 they are now destined to play the next round in late June with just five weeks before the next season starts!

Now that's a football schedule that other codes would struggle with, and so may the Jets come October/November time, particularly if they get past Pohang in the next round. A round which is one-off game, and the Jets are away?

How does that compute?
