A-League shows Heart and Leckie

Adelaide United, Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Heart were the big winners on the weekend.

A classic John Aloisi miss, was matched by a classic Aloisi goal in the Heart Phoenix match.

Good football for the watching TV viewers inspired by the very tall Gerard Sibon, Rugter Worm and Josip Skoko.

In Brisbane Matthew Leckie proved he and not his team-mate Marcos Flores is the man.

He scores with his head, his right foot and now his left foot. He's a match winner and he's an Aussie, just 19.

Jets produced a good performance to send Perth packing, a mis-firing Perth it has to be said.

But with Gold Coast snuffed out by the Mariners in front of 2,000 fans, an A-League record, the big winner of the weekend was the Heart and the Jets.

Can anyone survive on 2,000 people, what must Jason Culina think?

The crowds clearly don't like the strong and exciting Gold Coast performances as they are getting lower by the week.
