The A -League final

The A League capped off a great season with a thrilling final.
Most finals of any sport are not matches of great skill and this was the case here  however the tension  was palpable and to finish with a penalty shoot out tested the nerves.

The season was easily the best for yonks. I watched all Friday matches live on SBS and to my mind there was only one dud match.

The FFA needs to address two major issues. Find stadiums that are suitable to use ( A final in Sydney MUST be at Homebush) and get more juniors involved in teams. I was surprised to find players not good enough to play in the A league still playing in teams which  did not use local juniors.

It would be good to have some promotion as well. I have said previously the FFA should be trying to get a bigger crowd at the Sydney derby than there is for the Manchester derby.

The Friday match should be on a better channel than a SBS offshoot as well.

Hopefully the Wanderers can it it next season!!
