Aussie Football sells out!

Brisbane Roar packed in 25,000 into Suncorp last night and Adelaide United's minor Semi if sold out this afternoon.

Football at Hindmarsh is always something special and this afternoons game will be no different - will Gold Coast spoil the party. I hate to say it but I think so.

Last night the Mighty Mariners showed why the Grand Final can be a humdinger if the yellow bellies can win their Semi and come back to Suncorp to take on the Roar.

The Roar has the momentum, 2-0 and 67% of the ball in the first half but were 2-0 down.

In truth this game could have been 3-3 at half-time with both teams missing many chances.

A tactical switch, Mitch Nichols being withdrawn, Henrique on and Thomas Broich into midfield changed the game - instantly.

The Mariners were looking the most likely in the second half with the Roar stumbling to find the rhythm of the last 26 non-defeated games.

Mariners keeper 18 year old Matt Ryan made a big NEARPOST error and the Thomas Broich took full advantage.

Who wouldn't want to see these two sides back in the Grand Final.

The Roar showed as they did in the first leg, the Mariners can and will create many chances against them. And indeed next time the Mariners may well spoil the party in front of 50,000 Brisbanites at Suncorp.

Great week for football.
