  • We had a full house this week though George95 missed the Brisbane vs Perth game due to late tips.
  • Brisbane scored late in the first half at home to Perth and thought they had doubled their lead in the second half only to have it ruled out due to offside. Perth took full advantage with 2 goals in the final 10 minutes to steal the win. It was a perfect Christmas gift for Newcastle as they thrashed Western Sydney at home with a completely dominant performance. It was almost as dominant for Sydney away to Wellington though the Phoenix did have their chances but it was the visitors who scored 4 goals to remain at the top of the standings. It looked very much like a first goalless Melbourne derby in 4 years until Melbourne Victory were awarded a penalty 6 minutes into stoppage time at the end of the game, they duly converted to snatch the 3 points. It was just as tight in Adelaide as the home team beat Central Coast on the back of a 14th minute goal followed by 3 saves from their goalkeeper, neither side could score in the second half though both came close.
  • We had another good round this week as we went 41/64 or 64.06%. Not surprisingly, we all tipped Sydney to beat Wellington. The trickiest games to tip were the Perth and Melbourne Victory away wins where each game was tipped by 3 of us.
  • Yet another round without any draws which once again suited N-Bomb who went 4/5 for the weekly win along with srini701, ElfTwinkle and George95. George95 actually went perfect with his tips but there was only 4 of them as he missed the first match and therefore he does not get a bonus point. FussBudget made it 5 wooden spoons in a row and is joined by wwe84 with 2/5.
  • Sypher sees his lead cut back to points as N-Bomb closes the gap yet again, he will be hoping for some draws in the coming weeks. The gap to third place has opened up to 3 points with ozzz2002 feeling the breaths of 3 wanting to take over the final spot on the podium. At the bottom FussBudget drops to 2 points behind Howie72 and illiniman14.

  • LeoDaVinci and illiniman14 were running on default fuel this week.
  • Maybe Newcastle were still in Christmas celebration mode as their trip to Melbourne Victory did not go as they hoped when a goal either side of their only successful effort was enough for Melbourne to secure their first home win of the season. Brisbane were looking good after going 2-0 up on the stroke of half-time away to Adelaide but then an act of madness saw them reduced to 10 players with Matt McKay sent off in the 5th minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half. Adelaide piled on the pressure in the second half but could only get one goal back as the Roar showed enough grit to hang on. For the second week in a row Bobo scored a hat-trick for Sydney as they powered to a copmprehensive 6-0 win at home to Perth, this equalled Brisbane's record home run of 23 matches unbeaten. An arm wrestle at Central Coast saw the Mariners and Wellington fight out a goalless stalemate, an improvement on recent results by both sides. Western Sydney came from behind to beat Melbourne City at home to register the first A-League win of 2018, all 3 goals coming in the first half.
  • It was almost back to normal this round as we went 20/55 or 36.36%. It happened again, we all tipped Sydney to beat Perth and they were never troubled in putting 6 goals past the Glory. The trickiest game to tip was Brisbane's win away at Adelaide, ozzz2002 was they only one who had a functioning crystal ball for this game and he duly earns himself a bonus point, the first of us to reach 3 bonus points this season.
  • Sypher breathed a sigh of relief as there was a draw this week and the weekly win went to ozzz2002 with 3/5. FussBudget made it 6 wooden spoons in a row and is joined by ElfTwinkle and srini701 with 1/5, FussBudget will find himself in the record books but still has a way to go to go past ozzz2002's record of 9 spoons in a row in the NCAAF competition.
  • Sypher maintains his 4 point lead over N-Bomb while ozzz2002 closes the gap to N-Bomb to 1 point. It appears ozzz2002 though the breaths on the back of his neck were a little smelly so he pulled away those behind him though no names will be mentioned..... At the bottom FussBudget remains 2 points behind illiniman14 who in turn, drops a point behind Howie72.

  • LeoDaVinci was running on default fuel this week while paper_aero missed the first match due to late tips.
  • The top of the table clash lived up to its hype with plenty of action and 31 shots at goal, home team Sydney twice coming from behind to deny Newcastle a stunning victory. Brisbane dominated early at home to Western Sydney before the visitors scored a goal against the run of play and added a second just before half time, chances for both teams in the second half but no more goals to leave Western Sydney with back-to-back wins. Perth were outclassed at home again, this time Adelaide putting 3 goals past them and have now conceded 9 in the last 2 games. Melbourne Victory took their home game to Geelong and it looked like paying dividends when they took the lead early in the second half but 2 substitions inspired Central Coast to equalise and head home with a share of the spoils. Once again the second half haunted Wellington Phoenix as a 1-0 half-time lead turned into a 2-1 defeat at Melbourne City.
  • No one got more right than wrong this round as we went 18/59 or 30.50%, helped considerably by Melbourne City's win over Wellington which accounted for 10 correct tips. The trickiest game to tip was Newcastle's draw at Sydney where wwe84 earned his first bonus point of the season while the rest of us went for Sydney.
  • There were 12 tippers this round and 7 of us earned the weekly win with 2/5 but too many for me to type just now. FussBudget failed in his attempt to win the most wooden spoons in a row as he was one of the 7 weekly winners, instead it was up to srini701 to take home a solo spoon with 0/5.
  • No change in the top 3 as they all had a weekly win so Sypher maintains his 4 point lead over N-Bomb with ozzz2002 a point further back. At the bottom FussBudget's weekly win sees him close the gap to 1 point behind illiniman14 with Howie72 just a point further ahead.

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel this week while LeoDaVinci missed the first match due to late tips.
  • Sydney briefly increased their lead at the top of the standings with a comprehensive 3-0 win at Brisbane, consigning the hosts to a 4th consecutive home defeat. In an entertaining match it was Newcastle that took advantage of a Central Coast sending off with 18 minutes to go as they scored twice in the last 8 minutes to keep a little pressure on Sydney. It was comfortable for Melbourne City away at Perth as two first half Ross McCormack goals were enough for them to head back east with the win. Wellington dominated Melbourne Victory after the visitors had a player sent off inside the first 10 minutes, the yellow card initially shown by the referee upgraded to red after the intervention of the video assistant referee. Melbourne took a lead against the run of play just before half time but the home side's constant presure told in the end with two second half goals. Another entertaining game saw Adelaide find the back of the net near the end of the game to secure a deserved draw away to Western Sydney.
  • It was not a bad round as we went 29/59 or 49.15%. We all managed to tip Newcastle's win at home to Central Coast though it was looking dodgy for most of the game. The trickiest game to tip was Wellington's win at home over Melbourne Victory where Howie72 earned his first bonus point of the season for a solo correct tip.
  • For the second week in a row 7 out of 12 tippers earned the weekly win though with 3/5 this time. FussBudget decided he needed an 8th wooden spoon as he went 1/5 and was joined by wwe84.
  • N-Bomb is slowly but surely closing the gap to Sypher at the top as he decreases it to 3 points with ozzz2002 hanging on a further point back. These 3 have opened a decent gap on the rest of the field as 4th place is now 4 points behind. At the bottom illiniman14's default score was negated by FussBudget's spoon so there remains a point between the two of them with Howie72 now 4 points ahead.

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel this week.
  • Newcastle kept the pressure on Sydney at the top of the standings when they defeated Brisbane by a solitary early goal at home, hanging on in the second half as they appeared to tire. Western Sydney dominated the first half at Wellington to take a 1-0 lead but the home team fought back to equalise and should have won late but the final pass was not made and the chance disappeared. The highest scoring game saw Melbourne Victory twice come from behind to defeat Perth in a 5 goal thriller in the Melbourne rain, their last 2 goals coming in the final 10 minutes. It was a tale of similar halves in Gosford as Central Coast scored early in each half only for Melbourne City to strike back late in each half, the visitor's second goal was initially ruled out for offside but the video assistant referee checked it and decided the goal should stand. Despite piling on the pressure in the second half Sydney could not break down Adelaide's defense and it ended in an entertaining goalless stalemate.
  • It was a similar round to week 15 as we went 29/60 or 48.33%. No game was tipped by everyone with Newcastle's win over Brisbane being the closest with 10 correct tips. The trickiest game to tip was the draw between Adelaide and Sydney where only wwe84 and FussBudget did not think either team would win.
  • We are back to a solo weekly winner and this time it is wwe84 who goes perfect with 5/5 and earns a bous point despite there being a rare 3 draws in the round. Four spoons were handed out to ozzz2002, Sypher LeoDaVinci and George95 who all went 1/5.
  • N-Bomb has narrowed the gap even further thanks to Sypher's spoon and is now just 1 point behind with ozzz2002 a further 2 points back and sensing wwe84 closing in. FussBudget has climbed off the bottom to be replaced by the defaulting illiniman14.

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel this week while gtho4 and George95 missed the Brisbane vs Perth match with late tips.
  • After 3 consecutive losses Brisbane remembered how to win as they dealt to Perth, winning in a 5 goal thriller after the Glory came from behind twice to equalise, the third time they were denied by the woodwork and have now lost 5 in a row. Melbourne Victory's resurgence continued as they comfortably beat Western Sydney away to move into third place in the standings. The shock of the round came at Newcastle where bottom placed Wellington beat their hosts 3-2, having to survive a late penalty that closed the gap and an even later penalty appeal that was denied by the referee and the video assistant referee. Leaders Sydney were outplayed at home by Central Coast but managed to salvage a draw with a goal on the hour mark to cancel out a first half Mariners penalty. Two first half goals set up Melbourne City for a win over Adelaide, the icing on the cake was an 89th minute goal and two more in stoppage time for Melbourne to run out big winners on the scoreboard.
  • We had a poor round as we went 17/58 or 29.31%. No game was tipped by everyone with the easiest to tip being Brisbane's win over Perth where 6 of us out of 10 got it right. The trickiest game to tip was Wellington's shock win over Newcastle where no one picked it, the closest being Sypher and Howie72 who predicted a draw. Another bonus point was earned by wwe84 as he was the only one to tip the draw between Sydney and Central Coast which now gives him 3 bonus points for the season.
  • There were 2 weekly winners as both paper_aero and N-Bomb went 3/5. Three spoons were handed out to srini701, gtho4 and ElfTwinkle who failed to get a correct tip between them.
  • Once again N-Bomb has narrowed the gap at the top and is now just 1 point behind Sypher, ozzz2002 is joined by wwe84 in third place and they are 3 points behind second. FussBudget pulls a further point ahead of the still defaulting illiniman14 at the bottom.

  • illiniman14 and FussBudget were running on default fuel this week.
  • Newcastle started superbly away to Melbourne City and went ahead after 3 minutes only for Melbourne to equalise just before half time, the second half saw the Jets take the lead again only to see their hosts level it up once more with no one being able to score the winner with Newcastle clearing a goal bound shot off the line in stoppage time. Melbourne Victory had not beaten Sydney for 2 years but it looked like changing when they went ahead with a 58th minute penalty, the Sky Blues had other ideas and scored 3 times in the last 30 minutes to take the win. Adelaide breathed life into their top 4 chances as they eked out a 1-0 win away to Wellington, surviving after a late Phoenix chance crashed against the crossbar. Brisbane put aside their AFC Champions League exit to Filipino club Ceres-Negros to punish 2 Central Coast defensive errors and ease their way to victory, the Mariners night going from bad to worse with a late sending off. Perth earned a much needed win as they beat Western Sydney at home, their job made easier by the Wanderers having a player sent off in the 7th minute after conceding a penalty.
  • Another poor round as we went 19/55 or 34.54% though it was better than last week. No game was tipped by everyone with the easiest to tip being Sydney's win over Melbourne Victory where 6 of us were successful. The trickiest game to tip was Perth's win at home to Western Sydney where just Howie72 and N-Bomb picked it.
  • It was crucial for Sypher to put a little more distance between him and N-Bomb and he obliged by earning the solo weekly win with 4/5. It was another round where the wooden spoon score was 0/5 with wwe84 and paper_aero taking the honours this time.
  • As mentioned above, Sypher increased his lead over N-Bomb back to 3 points though things can change very quickly in A-League tipping. ozzz2002 pushes wwe84 off the podium, taking over the bottom step by himself again. Nothing has changed at the bottom as both FussBudget and illiniman14 both went default.

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel this week.
  • There was chaos in the Wellington defense and Sydney took full advantage to romp to a comprehensive win, a big gulf between the top and bottom teams. A 2-0 scoreline in favour of Newcastle over Melbourne Victory looks comfortable but it was not the case as the Jets relied on their goalkeeper to keep them in the match with a series of superb saves. Perth travelled across the country to visit Adelaide and took an early lead though it did not last long, the Reds then took the lead just before half-time and hung on at the end of the game as Perth piled on the pressure. Western Sydney secured an important win at Central Coast on the back of 2 first half goals, the Mariners came back in the second half but it was too little and too late. To the delight of the home fans, Brisbane took a first half lead over Melbourne City only for the visitors to tie it up before half-time and take the lead midway through the second 45 minutes. The Roar then missed a penalty and Melbourne travelled back south with the 3 points.
  • It was a good week for us as we went 38/60 or 63.33% though only one game was perfect, we all tipped top of the table Sydney to beat bottom of the table Wellington at home. The trickiest game to tip was Western Sydney's win away to Central Coast where just wwe84, ozzz2002 and George95 picked it. Once again there were no draws.
  • There were 4 weekly winners with 4/5 - being gtho4, ozzz2002, George95 and N-Bomb. A decent 2/5 still saw paper_aero and FussBudget take home wooden spoons.
  • N-Bomb once again starts his quest of pegging back Sypher after last week's blip, he narrows the gap to 2 points with ozzz2002 hanging on a further 3 points back. The good news for ozzz2002 is that he increases his lead over wwe84 to 3 points. Nothing has changed at the bottom as both FussBudget received a spoon and illiniman14 went default.

  • We had a full house this week as we welcome back illiniman14.
  • Brisbane headed south to take on Melbourne Victory and roared out to a 2-0 half-time lead, Victory slowly worked their way back into the contest but could not score until the 84th minute, after that Brisbane had only defense on their minds and hung on to claim a vital 3 points. The stats say it was an even game in Wellington as the hosts took on Perth but it was the Phoenix that emerged with the win after a 90th minute Perth own goal won it for them, Perth has the chance to take the lead 7 minutes earlier after being awarded a penalty but the less said about the weak penalty attempt the better. Sydney also travelled to Melbourne and left with a dominant 4-0 win over Melbourne City to remain clear at the top of the standings, can anyone stop them being champions after this display against a fellow play-off team? In an entertaining game that had everything other than a red card, it finished all square between Western Sydney and Newcastle. Two penalties awarded to Western Sydney (1 after the intervention of the video assistant referee), 2 goals disallowed (1 by the VAR), end-to-end action, some good saves and a heated clash that did not result in any sending off. It was the same scoreline in Adelaide as the hosts came from 2-0 down to draw with Central Coast, a game that the Mariners will be wondering how they did not win after Adelaide had a player sent off in the 18th minute. In the end Central Coast were lucky to even leave with the draw.
  • It was an okay week (for A-League anway) for us as we went 25/65 or 38.46% with no game being tipped by all, Sydney's win at Melbourne City being the closest with 11 out of 13 correct. No one managed to pick Central Coast leaving Adelaide with a draw, we all had Adelaide winning. George95 earned himself a bonus point for being the only one to think Brisbane would beat Melbourne Victory away.
  • There were 5 weekly winners with 3/5 - being FussBudegt, ozzz2020, gtho4, George95 and Howie72. Once again the wooden spoon went to a score of 0/5 with wwe84 and illiniman14 achieving this, not a good return to competition for illiniman14 but it was the same as the default score.
  • The gap at the top between Sypher and N-Bomb remains at 2 points with ozzz2002 now only a further 2 points behind. George95 moves into 4th place but is 4 points behind ozzz2002. At the bottom FussBudget moves 6 points clear of illiniman14.

  • illiniman14 was back to running on default.
  • Central Coast dominated possession against Wellington but the visitors outshot the Marines, in the end it was a stoppage time goal at the end of the first half that settled it in Central Coast's favour. Brisbane were the only home team not to win this round as Newcastle beat them with a well taken 79th minute goal in the south Queensland humidity. Just 2 days after returning from China where they played in the Asian Champions League, Melbourne Victory hosted Adelaide. Like last week, the Reds had a player sent off but unlike last week, they could not come back and went down 3-0. Melbourne City travelled west and took a 1-0 lead into the break against Perth. It all went wrong for City when they had a player sent off after 66 minutes for a second yellow card. Perth took advantage and equalised in the 84th minute and 7 minutes into stoppage time they grabbed the winner. Meanwhile, even rain could not dampen Sydney's march to the title but they had to come from behind to defeat Western Sydney in the Sydney derby.
  • It was good week for us as we went 34/60 or 56.66% with no game being tipped by all as Howie72 decided to be different and pick Wellington over Central Coast but it backfired. The hardest game to pick was Perth's win at home over Melbourne City where just wwe84 and ozzz2002 picked it. No draws this week and no bounus points.
  • First place Sypher and third place ozzz2002 both earned the weekly win with 4/5. Spoons went to srini701, FussBudget, Howie72 and George95 with a respectable 2/5.
  • Sypher opens the gap at the top to 3 points with his weekly win while ozzz2002 and his weekly win closes the gap to second place N-Bomb to 1 point. With just 6 rounds left it is looking likely these 3 will fill the podium as George95 is now 6 points adrift in 4th place. No change at the bottom with FussBudget 6 points clear of illiniman14.

  • illiniman14 was running on default.
  • The latest Melbourne derby got off to a fast start but Victory's 1st minute goal was ruled out be the video assistant referee for offside, City's reprieve did not last long as this time the goal stood after 12 minutes. City equalised in the second half with a penalty but Victory scored the winner soon after. It was a stop-start game with 54 fouls between the 2 teams. Newcastle halted Sydney's momentum with a hard fought 2-1 win despite having a player sent-off in the 14th minute for striking an opponent in the face with an arm. It was an armwrestle in Brisbane as the Roar battled Adelaide, the only score being scored by Brisbane with a very well taken free kick just before half-time. A change of manager by Wellington brought no change in fortunes as sloppy defending from set pieces gifted Western Sydney 2 goals and they ran out comfortable winners in a round 22 game played a week after the Wanderer's round 23 game against Perth. Chris Greenacre is having his third stint as interim manager for the Phoenix. Perth kept their finals hopes alive when they outclassed Central Coast in Perth, this round 22 game also being played a week after their round 23 game. Round 23's Western Sydney vs Perth game was brought forward with both goals being scored in the first 13 minutes, there was drama at the end of the game when Perth's goalkeeper was sent off in the 87th minute but they held on for the final few minutes with a makeshift goalkeeper as they had already used all of their allowed substitutes.
  • It was a poor week for us as we went 26/72 or 36.11% with no perfect game while no one thought Newcastle would beat Sydney despite the Jets being second in the standings and playing at home, wwe84 was closest with a draw. FussBudget is awarded his first bonus point of the season for being the only one to pick Perth's draw at Western Sydney.
  • Not only does FussBudget get a bonus point but he also takes a solo weekly win with 4/6. George95 takes home the wooden spoon with 0/6.
  • N-Bomb cuts Sypher's lead at the top to 1 point with ozzz2002 a further 2 points behind. With just 5 rounds can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins? FussBudget increases his gap over the defaulting illiniman14 to 11 points at the bottom.

I have made an error and will have to redo round 22 as I added the Western Sydney vs Perth game into this round instead of round 23. While it does not affect the final points total it will affect the HOF/WOS countback at the end.

  • We have a handful of weekly winners this week as N-Bomb, wwe84, gth04, Howie72 and Fuss-Budget all went 3/5. George95 takes home the wooden spoon with 0/5.
  • N-Bomb cuts Sypher's lead at the top to 1 point with ozzz2002 a further 2 points behind. With just 5 rounds can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins? FussBudget increases his gap over the defaulting illiniman14 to 9 points at the bottom.

  • illiniman14 was running on default.
  • The Western Sydney vs Perth game was brought forward to March 4, both goals were scored in the first 13 minutes but there was drama at the end of the game when Perth's goalkeeper was sent off in the 87th minute. They held on for the draw over the final few minutes with a makeshift goalkeeper as they had already used all of their allowed substitutes. Despite missing a penalty, Melbourne City came from behind to deservedly draw at home to Adelaide though it took a former Adelaide player to equalise early in the second half. Wellington will be left wondering how they did not beat Newcastle after dominating the game, typically for a team at the bottom of the table they lacked confidence in front of goal and conceded a goal that bounced perfectly for Newcastle not once but twice, the Jets keeping up the pressure on Sydney. For they first time since April 2016, Sydney has suffered back-to-back home losses as Brisbane roared out of the gates to score twice in the first 20 minutes. Brisbane rode their luck in the end as Sydney had a fiorst half goal ruled out by the video assistant referee for offside and that proved crucial as Sydney could only score once in the second half, the Sky Blues are now winless in their last 4 matches. It was more straight forward in Melbourne as the Victory put 5 past Central Coast, including a Besart Berisha hattrick, before the Marines eased their pain with 2 late Connor Pain strikes.
  • It was another reasonable week for us by A-League sytandards as we went 28/60 or 46.66% with no perfect game. The closest was Melbourne Victory's win over Central Coast where just wwe84 did not tip it. No one picked Sydney to lose at home to Brisbane and FussBudget earns his first bonus point of the season for his solo pick of the draw between Western Sydney and Perth.
  • Thanks to his inspired pick of the Western Sydney draw with Perth, FussBudget takes home the solo weekly win with 4/5. Sypher is feeling the pressure from N-Bomb and takes home the spoon with 1/5.
  • N-Bomb has finally done it, drasing level with Sypher with 4 rounds to go, both have identical HOF/WOS stats, ozzz2002 stays 2 points behind. With just 4 rounds can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins or can SYpher regroup? Maybe ozzz2002 will sneak past them while the battle it out. FussBudget increases his gap over the defaulting illiniman14 to 13 points at the bottom and closes to within 3 points of srini701.

  • FussBudget and illiniman14 were running on default.
  • Adelaide were superb while Newcastle were abysmal and it showed as the Reds attacked with impunity as they put 5 past the hapless Jets, the game was all but over by the time the Jets had a player sent off late in the second half. Newcastle will need to show more resolve if they are to mount a serious challenge in the play-offs. Sydney took a first half lead at Central Coast only to see the home side level it up in the 82nd minute, it look destined for a draw until a header from a deflected cross in the 3rd minute of stoppage time won it for the Sky Blues and breaking the heart of the home fans. Western Sydney travelled to Melbourne full of hope but left with their tails between their legs as it was largely one-way traffic in Melbourne City's 3-0 win. It was not a result in Wellington that either team wanted but it was a fair result as Wellington Phoenix and Brisbane drew 2-2 after an entertaining 4-goal second half. Wellington remain at the foot of the table while Brisbane remain just outside the top 6 play-off spots. Perth moved to within 1 point of 6th place with a hard fought but crucial 1-0 win over a Melbourne Victory side that will be disappointed in the effort, the Glory defending expertly in the second half to remain in front.
  • It was an okay week by A-League standards as we went 21/55 or 38.18% with no perfect game. The closest was Sydney's win at Central Coast where it went down to the wire and nearly disappointed 9 of us. Two bonus points were awarded this week and both went to wwe84 for solo picks as he was the only one to tip the draw between Wellington and Brisbane as well as Perth's home win over Melbourne Victory, an impressive tipping display.
  • Despite two solo tips, wwe84 has to share the weekly win with Sypher, paper-aero and N-Bomb who all went 3/5. We had another spoon score of 0/5 and it went again to srini701, the 4th time he has failed to get a single tip correct this season.
  • Both Sypher and N-Bomb went 3/5 so remain at top of the standings on equal points and identical HOF/WOS stats, ozzz2002 drops to 4 points behind and wwe84 cannot counted out for the third podium spot as he jumps to within 2 points of ozzz2002. With just 3 rounds left can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins or can Sypher edge away again? Nothing changed at the bottom as FussBUdget and illiniman14 both went default.

  • George95 and illiniman14 were running on default.
  • Adelaide never really looked threatened as they swept aside bottom placed Wellington to move into the top 4, the Phoenix's goal being a late consolation penalty. Brisbane did enough to beat Central Coast who lacked the cutting egde needed to seriously threaten the home team, the Roar moving into the 6th and final play-off spot and with Western Sydney's loss, remained there with 2 rounds to go. Melbourne Victory cemented a play-off spot with a 3-1 win over Western Sydney, the biggest drama happening in stoppage time at the end of the first half. Western Sydney equalised in the first minute of stoppage time and soon after Melbourne were awarded a penalty after a Wanderers defender was given a second yellow card for holding an attacker and was sent off, before the penalty could be attempted a Victory player was sent off for stomping on an opposition player. The penalty attempt was successful and Melbourne added a third in the second half. Perth's game against Sydney was played on Thursday night and Sydney won by the odd goal in 5, this earned them the Premiers' plate and the Sky Blues are the first team in A-League history to win back-to-back Premiers' Plates. The form of Newcastle heading into the play-offs will be of concern to the manager and fans as they lost for the second time in a row while conceding 8 goals in the process, this time Melbourne City beating them and showing they are coming into form at the right time.
  • It was avery good week by A-League standards as we went 34/53 or 64.15% with everyone tipping Brisbane to beat Central Coast. The trickiest game to pick was Melbourne City's win at Newcastle which only N-Bomb and LeoDaVinci got right. One bonus point was awarded to N-Bomb as he went perfect.
  • As mentioned above, N-Bomb went perfect with 5/5 and earned a solo weekly win. Four spoons were handed out this week as wwe84, ozzz2002, paper_aero and srini701 all went 2/5.
  • It was the perfect time for N-Bomb to go perfect as he breaks away from Sypher to jump out to a 3 point lead, ozzz2002 is now 8 points behind Sypher and just 2 ahead of wwe84 for the final podium spot. With just 2 rounds left can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins or can Sypher regroup and get back into it? FussBudget has moved to within 1 point of srini701 at the bottom of the regular tippers, will he leap over him or can srini701 hold on?

  • George95 and illiniman14 were running on default. N-Bomb missed the Perth vs Sydney match due to late tips, lodged after the match had finished.
  • Adelaide never really looked threatened as they swept aside bottom placed Wellington to move into the top 4, the Phoenix's goal being a late consolation penalty. Brisbane did enough to beat Central Coast who lacked the cutting egde needed to seriously threaten the home team, the Roar moving into the 6th and final play-off spot and with Western Sydney's loss, remained there with 2 rounds to go.

  • We had four weekly winners as gtho4, Howie72, N-Bomb & LeoDaVinci all went 4/5. Four spoons were handed out this week as wwe84, ozzz2002, paper_aero and srini701 all went 2/5.
  • It was the perfect time for N-Bomb to gain a weekly win while Sypher did not as he breaks away from Sypher to jump out to a 1 point lead, ozzz2002 is now 5 points behind Sypher and just 2 ahead of wwe84 for the final podium spot. With just 2 rounds left can N-Bomb make it back-to-back-to-back competition wins or can Sypher regroup and get back into it?

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel.
  • Western Sydney had not won back-to-back against Brisbane since 2013 but needed to to keep their play-off hopes alive, Brisbane had only lost 1 of their last 7 away games but it was the Wanderers that dominated and won 3-0 but it could easily have been a much bigger scoreline as they outshot their opponents by 28 to 10. Perth also kept their finals hopes alive with a comfortable 2-0 win at Newcastle, the Jets poor run of form continuing with just 1 week of the regular season to go. This leaves the Wanderers, Roar and the Glory all fighting for the last play-off spot next week. In a game that never rose to any great heights, Melbourne City did just enough to claim the win over Central Coast and stay in second place in the standings. Melbourne Victory had to come from behind to beat Wellington at home, 2 goals in the last 10 minutes proving enough to beat the bottom-placed Phoenix. It was another clinical performance from Sydney as the Sky Blues carried on as usual with a 3-0 win over Adelaide.
  • It was another very good week by A-League standards as we went 41/60 or 68.33% with 3 perfect games, being the Melbourne City, Melbourne Victory and Sydney wins. On the other hand, no one predicted Perth would win at Newcastle.
  • If you did not get a weekly win or a wooden spoon then you were running on default fuel. The weekly win went to 5 of us with 4/5 while the wooden spoon went to the remaining 7 active tippers with a season high 3/5.
  • It looks very much like N-Bomb has the competition sown up as he increased his lead over Sypher to 2 points with a much better tie-break. It is the same for ozzz2002 over wwe84 in the battle for third place. FussBudget has dropped back to 2 points behind srini701 at the bottom of the regular tippers but does have a better tie-break courtesy of more weekly wins.

  • illiniman14 was running on default fuel.
  • Central Coast went into their home match against Newcastle knowing a draw would be enough to avoid the wooden spoon, Newcastle knew they needed a good result to bring back confidence leading into the play-offs. In the end there was just one team in it as the Jets thrashed the Mariners 8-2, the first time they had scored 8 in an A-League match and the total of 10 goals was an A-League record. Just prior to this match, Wellington hosted second-place Melbourne City and came from a goal down to beat the vistors, leapfrogging them over Central Coast in the process but City remained in second place courtesy of Friday night's game where Sydney had edged Melbourne Victory by a solitary early goal to give the Sky Blues a clean sweep of their Melbourne rivals this season. Perth had to beat Brisbane at home to give themselves a chance of play-off football but it was not to be as Brisbane edged them 3-2 in a thriller with the winning goal being a Perth own goal after the Glory had missed a penalty. Brisbane then had to wait to see if Adelaide could get a result at Western Sydney and they duly did in another 3-2 thriller, the Wanderers did not help themselves with a sending off. Brisbane breathed a sigh of relief as they claimed the 6th and final play-off spot.
  • It was an okay week by A-League standards as we went 23/60 or 38.33% though no game was perfect, the closest being Sydney's win over Melbourne Victory with just ozzz2002 going against the rest by tipping a draw. The hardest game to tip was Wellington's upset win over Melbourne City which just Howie72 foresaw (or got lucky).
  • The final weekly wins of the season went to Howie72 and George 95 with 3/5 while Sypher, paper_aero and srini701 took home the last spoons with 1/5.
  • The end of season awards are as follows:

  • Hats off to N-Bomb who came from behind to overtake Sypher near the end of the season and win going away, ending up 3 points to the good for back-to-back-toback A-League wins. The third spot on the podium has gone to ozzz2002 who held wwe84 at arms length. N-Bomb and ozzz2002 both retain their positions from 2017. FussBudget beat srini710 in the final round but it was not enough to overtake hime so he finishes last of the regular tippers. Thank you to all that tipped and congratulations to the three oin the podium. Can any one beat N-Bomb? We shall find out next season when the next edition of the A-League tipping competition kicks-off.
