Beautiful football in the A-League

Adelaide United thumped Wellington Phoenix 3-0 but it was the quality of the football the movement off the ball, the deft flicks that had me loving my Friday night football from Hindmarsh.

Wellington Phoenix were good, at times very good and in the first half had the balance of play and better chances.

But this game like the A-League this season just got better and better and the football needed to make a breakthrough was intricate, fast, and even the players were smiling with the joy of their skill and technique

Is there a better team in any code in Australia than Adelaide United at the moment?

Are Collingwood more exciting, St George more interesting the United.

Maybe, maybe not.

And Adelaide United didn't even play Matthew Leckie!

It was a delight to watch and Travis Dodd came on to show the strength of the league leaders and turn the screw and the game.

But United shone all night; if you get a chance to see the A-League leaders, do it. You won't be disappointed, I promise.
