A-League Season 5: Best yet.

The A-League is shaping up for it's best season yet. There's still a way to go and expect a few more twists and turns but new teams, new players added to an established old guard seem to be getting the fans excited like never before.

The new teams: Gold Coast and North Queensland Fury, the bank and the paupers, top v bottom maybe.

The imports: Jason Culina, Robbie Fowler, three Brazilians at Gold Coast, Thai International at Victory.

Aussies returning: Jason Van Stratton, Jason Culina, Jacob Burns, Mile Sterjovski(?)Ljubo Milicevic

Youngs guns to shine brighter: Ben Kantarovski, Scott Neville, Kofi Danning, Mitch Nicholls, Rhyan Grant, Taj Minniecon, Sean Rooney the list goes on and on and expect a few bolters a la Shannon Cole.

The oldies but goldies in the broadest sense: Kevin Muscat, Archie Thompson, John Aloisi, Craig Moore, Charlie Miller, Carlos Hernandez, Ney Fabiano, Travis Dodd, Eugene Dadi, Shane Smeltz, Stevie Corica....

And if Sterjovski does sign for Perth...they won't be in the bottom two this year will they?

And wouldn't it be great to see New Zealand qualify for the World Cup..they have the old Aussie battle, not against the 5th placed South American but against the 5th placed Asian team..could be Australia but not likely is it.

And season 6, expect Melbourne to pack their new stadium and two more teams after the World Cup...the journey continues!
