A-League 0708 Minor Premiership

I planned on going to watch Central Coast Mariners vs Wellington Pheonix tonight. BUT 3/5s of the crew I was going with wanted to watch it at the pub (softies!). It was easier to stay dry in the pub - and probably a bit more comfortable too. It was a fun night. Giddy up the Mariners!

At the start of this round (the final regular season round) the top 4 were all equal on goal difference. This is rare and set up for an exciting finish to the season.

Newcastle won 2-1 last night (watch the goals)
Mariners won 2-0 tonight (watch the goals)

It means that currently Mariners are leading on goal difference over Newcastle.
Sydney and Queensland both have difficult matches tomorrow night (Sunday).

If QLD wins. They will be minor premiers. Sydney have to hope that QLD draw or lose and that they win by 2 or more to beat the Mariners.

My tip: Mariners should make the top 2 (this is important). I think there's a good chance that both Syd and QLD will be pushed hard in their matches - and one of them is bound to slip up. Best scenario is Melbourne drawing or beating Sydney and Adelaide drawing or beating QLD. QLD will probably win with Mariners second.

What's your tip for the A-League minor premiership???

    Naturally I'm tipping Sydney, would love to go to the game but i got church, which is more important.
    I was trying to work out why Sydney needs to win by two, if they win by 1 we are equal on Goal diff, but because you have won more you are ahead, but we beat you twice and have scored more goals and lost less games. As long as Sydney make top two I'm happy, cause that means ACL.
    Sydney 3-1
    Adelaide 1-0
    And you can work out how that works out.
    It sure has been an exciting season though.

    top 2 doesn't = ACL.

    top 1 = acl
    grand final winner = acl

    if that's the same team?
    not sure if it's #2 from regular season or #2 from gf.

    if goal difference is equal, it then goes on who has scored more.

    at the moment. cc has GD of 5
    fc 4.
    cc has scored 30
    fc 26

    so sydney has to win by two - or they can win by 1 - but have to win like 5-4 or higher!!
    but hey we've seen a 5-4 already this season - lots of fun.

    see what happens by this time tomorrow! top
