A-League rocks in September

So many highlights from the A-League this weekend; here's a few for those without Fox and/or stuck in the AFL/NRL/Masterchef seasons.

Marcos Flores, Adelaide United, his wonder goal was only outdone by Aussie Matthew Leckie's header and Cassio's defensive mistakes in the same game. So much football down at Hindmarsh and the Jets must be the best football team in the World to be second bottom of their league.

And the Mariners; wonder goal from Daniel McBreen. The Coach makes the team and Graham Arnold had six new players in his starting line-up this year, that's without Perez, no wonder the team has changed, the style has changed. Passing at Gosford. It's all the rage.

Nicky Ward strikes for the Phoenix and even Sydney's Brazilian produced a goal of some class, if not much else.

Meanwhile on Sunday for the Victory Ricardinho's cheeky goal, and Brisbane Roar's first half display caught the eye.

There is just so much more possession football in this league this year. Teams actually look Coached!

And then to Perth; what a bunch of thugs they are. But still enjoyed the game, the physical contest and great to see the Gold Coast playing and a great performance from Jason Culina.

What's not to like this league?

How many viewers would a highlights package on FTA drag in with this sort of action!
