  • Welcome to the 2015/16 tipping competition of torture also known as the A-League football/soccer competition. We welcome back 11 of us from last season with the only change being the return of ElfTwinkle who replaces BxBarracuda.
  • The season began with Brisbane traveling south to take on Western Sydney, the new look home team outshot the vistors but it was the Roar who bulged the old onion bag more times to give them a winning start to the campaign. In a dull stop-start match where both sides were showing some first match rust it would be Melbourne Victory who would be happier with the goalless draw as they finished the match with 10 players but Adelaide could not capitalise on the numerical advantage. It could not have been more different in Gosford where Central Coast hosted Perth in an entertaining match, 2 penalties helping the home team get off to a winning start in a 5 goal thriller, Perth being the disappointed team as they were looking to put last the troubles of last season behind them. Melbourne City headed to Sydney with a number of key injuries and held the more favoured home team to a 1-1 draw. Wellington outshot Newcastle but it was the visitors who emerged triumphant at the cake tin despite having a player sent off, Wellington not helping themselves by missing a penalty and kept their poor run of opening match disasters going, this being the 8th time in the last 9 seasons they have not won their opening match.
  • Sypher and illiniman14 missed the opening match.
  • We had a bad opening round last season but this time it was worse with just 12 correct tips out of 58 or 20.69%. It looks like it will be another long season of struggle for us.
  • George95 earns the first bonus point of the season with his tip of Brisbane upsetting Western Sydney but none of us saw Wellington losing at home to Newcastle, a team that only won 3 times in 27 matches last season.
  • George95 was the only one who got more than a 50% strike rate and as a result earns the weekly win with 3/5. On the other hand, paper_aero, ozz2002 and Sypher all failed to get off the mark and take home a spoon each with 0/5.
  • George95 starts off where he ended last season - atop the leaderboard, the bonus point giving him a 2 point buffer over last season's last place tipper, Fuss Budget.

  • It finished all square on Friday night in Adelaide when the Spaniard Andreu scored for both teams, giving Adelaide a first half lead with an own goal and equalising late in the match to give Western Sydney a deserved point. A controversial offside decision denied Newcastle an early lead and an 89th minute header denied them a point for a draw, Sydney stretching their unbeaten run against Newcastle to 8 matches and their unbeaten away regular season run to 16 matches. The first Melbourne derby of the season saw an even later goal win it for Melbourne Victory in a 5 goal thriller over Melbourne City, the goal coming in the 90th minute. Brisbane scored early in each half and it was enough despite a late Central Coast goal to give them a second win in their opening 2 matches. Wellington travelled over 5000km to Perth for one of the longest away trips in world football and dominated proceedings but it took them until the 89th minute for a goal from Vince Lia, his first for four and a half years, to send them back home with all 3 points.
  • It was a better round for us this week as we tipped 22/60 or 36.67% between us, still not good but better then week one.
  • srini701 thought he had better get into bonus earning mood when he was the only one to predict a draw between Adelaide and Western Sydney while no one thought Wellington would win away at Perth.
  • Weekly winners were illiniman14, gtho4, Howie72 and N-Bomb who all got 3/5. George95 showed just how difficult it can be to tip the A-League when he followed up a weekly win in round one with 0/5 and a wooden spoon this week.
  • With his wooden spoon, George95 left the door to the top of the podium ajar and 5 of us forced our way through to join him atop the standings. The pushy tipsters being FussBudget, gtho4, N-Bomb, illiniman14 and Howie72. At the other end, ozzz2002 scored his first point of the season but it was not enough as paper_aero and Sypher both scored 2 points to leave ozzz2002 on the bottom rung by himself.

  • The Hunter Stadium hoodoo continued for Melbourne Victory as they went down 1-0 away to Newcastle, leaving them awaiting their first win there since October 2009. In a thrilling topsy-turvy match, Wellington Phoenix triumphed over Brisbane 3-2 to end the visitor's winning start to the season. The Sydney derby looked like being a goalless stalemate until an 88th minute winner gave Sydney the spoils over Western Sydney, the first time they have kept Western Sydney scoreless in 9 matches and the Wanderers now having gone 16 matches in a row without keeping a clean sheet. In an attacking match where there 36 shots on goal, it was Melbourne City that came out on top over Central Coast leaving the Mariners still searching for their first away win since the final round of the 2013/14 season. Melbourne City's social media officer found himself on the substitutes bench after a late injury. Perth earned their first win of the season when they beat Adelaide at home, their third match in the last 8 days.
  • We are warming up to the task of A-League tipping as this week we achieved 30/60 or 50%.
  • Every match was tipped correctly by at least 2 people so no bonus points handed out this week, the closest being the Newcastle win over Melbourne Victory which saw only wwe84 and ElfTwinkle being rewarded for their tips.
  • N-Bomb makes it back to back weekly wins and is joined by ozzz2002 in getting 4/5. We will need a new shipment of wooden spoons for nest week as 8 were handed out this time, srini701 and Howie72 the only tippers not to get a weekly win nor a wooden spoon.
  • N-Bomb finds himself out front with a one point lead over Howie72. At the other end, ozzz2002 decided he did not like the view from the bottom rung and climbed over wwe84, ElfTwinkle, paper_aero and Sypher. He left these 4 languishing in a share of last place or as they would prefer to say, in 9th equal place.

  • Melbourne City looked to have their home match against Newcastle sown up at half-time when leading 2-0 but nobody told the Jets as a superb second half comeback saw them leave Melbourne with the spoils, this giving them 3 wins in 4 matches which is as many as they achieved in all of last season. Central Coast had a player sent-off just before half time with the score at 1-1 but it looked like they would escape with a draw until former player, Matt Simon, scored twice to leave Sydney at the top of the standings for another week. Brisbane earned themselves a 3-0 home win over Adelaide, a score that flattered the hosts and could have been completely different if Adelaide could remember how to find the back of the old onion bag. Western Sydney did enough in the rain to earn their first win of the season, a 1-0 win over a visiting Perth side that did not register a shot on target. In their first 3 games of the season Wellington have conceded the first goal and this continued on the road to Melbourne Victory, there was no comeback as the hosts cruised to Victory.
  • For the second week in a row we achieved 30/60 or 50% so no decline in our tipping ability this round.
  • No one saw the Newcastle Jets comeback to win at Melbourne City but every other match was picked by at least 5 of us.
  • N-Bomb makes it a hat trick of weekly wins and is joined this week by Sypher in getting 4/5. After a glut of wooden spoons last week, this week the only spoon goes to ozzz2002 with 1/5.
  • N-Bomb increases his lead out front to 2 points over Howie72 with a further point back to gtho4 in solo 3rd. At the other end Sypher makes a huge jump from 9th equal to 4th equal with his weekly win leaving ozzz2002, wwe84 and paper_aero in a share of last place.

  • For the second week in a row Melbourne City jumped out to a 2-0 half time lead but unlike last week they did not relinquish it and ran out impressive 4-2 winners at Adelaide. The match between Sydney and Brisbane promised much but delivered little as the top two sides played out a dull goalless draw where only two shots were registered as being on target, however it did mean Sydney remain the only unbeaten team. Newcastle opened the scoring at home in a controversial manner when the scorer was adjudged offside by the linesman but after a discussion with the referee the goal was allowed to stand. It did not matter in the end as Western Sydney score 2 in reply to win back-to-back. For the first time in 11 matches at Gosford, Central Coast and Welington have played out a draw with Central Coast scoring a deserved equaliser in the 76th minute. Perth vs Melbourne Victory was postponed until December 16th as these two teams were to meet in the Football Federation Australia Cup final.
  • George95 missed the Adelaide vs Melbourne City match.
  • The less said about the success rate this round the better, we managed 12/47 or 25.53%.
  • Two matches were tipped correctly by just 2 people, being srini701 and ozzz2002 with the Melbourne City away win, along with N-Bomb and George95 with the Western Sydney away win.
  • Despite missing the first match, George95 joined srini701 and ElfTwinkle with a weekly win of 2/4 or 2/3. Wooden spoons went to paper_aero, Howie72 and illiniman14 with goose eggs of 0/4.
  • N-Bomb increases his lead out front to 3 points over a log jam of 4 tippers. At the other end paper_aero and his wooden spoon sees him claim the bottom rung of the ladder to himself.

That's about par for the course in this comp!

Yes it is, maybe I got overconfident we were getting better after 50% in each of the previous 2 rounds smile

  • Wellington Phoenix hosted a rare Friday night match and showed it did not worry them with an entertaining victory over Adelaide, if you had arrived 5 minutes after kick-off you would have missed a goal from each team but still had another 4 to enjoy. The common theme for Western Sydney was 3 in their match away to Melbourne City. They won 3-0, moved into 3rd place with their 3rd straight win and the first goal scorer, Mark Nichols, scored his 3rd goal of the season. It was not without controversy as the 2nd goal was originally flagged for offside but after consultation, the referee wrongly allowed the goal to stand. Central Coast had a player sent-off in the 25th minute but showed determination to equalise deep into second half stoppage time for a deserved draw away to Newcastle. Sydney started their home match against Melbourne Victory with an unbeaten start to the season, having only conceded 2 goals in 5 games and having only lost once in the last 12 games against Melbourne Victory in Sydney. It was obvious what was going to happen, Melbourne Victory hit the back of the old onion bag 4 times to earn the victory in a thrilling match. In complete contrast, Brisbane edged Perth 1-0 in a scrappy match to jump to the top of the standings.
  • For the first time this season we tipped over 50% with 32/60 or 53.33%.
  • We were on target for a perfect round after the first match as we all tipped Wellington Phoenix to beat Adelaide but there it ended. The toughest match to predict was Western Sydney's win away at Melbourne City with just gtho4 and George95 getting it correct.
  • paper_aero and Howie72 took the honours this week with 4/5 while 1/5 was enough for ozzz2002 and Sypher to both earn their 3rd spoon in 6 rounds.
  • N-Bomb sees his lead cut to 2 points with Howie72 back into solo second. It seems paper_aero did not like the view at the bottom so jumps to 9th equal with his hall of fame effort, ozzz2002 and his spoon replacing him at the tail end of the standings.

  • Two early first half goals were enough to give Melbourne Victory a win at home over Central Coast to take them to the top of the table and make it 6 wins in a row for the Victory over the Mariners. Brisbane ensured the Victory's stay at the top of the standings was temporary as they came from behind to share the spoils at home to Melbourne City, an improvement on last season when City won all 3 matches between the two teams. The stats favoured Western Sydney in their match against Wellington Phoenix but it was not until the 85th minute when the scored the winning goal to give them 4 wins in a row. Perth hosted Sydney in 34C and the heat got the best of both teams as they rarely threatened to score, the goalless draw was enough to stretch Sydney's unbeaten run away from home to 18 matches. Adelaide and Newcastle also failed to score, the visiting Jets could not even register a shot at goal despite dominating possession whereas the home team could not get past the Newcastle goal keeper.
  • ozzz2002 missed the first match but as we all tipped Melbourne Victory he earns himself a "gimme" point.
  • We achieved another record success rate for this season by tipping 34/60 correct or 56.67%.
  • We all tipped Melbourne Victory to beat Central Coast at home, ozzz2002 and his "gimme" tip making it a full house of 12 tips. The draw between Brisbane and Melbourne City was the most difficult to tip with just wwe84, paper_aero and ozzz2002 getting it correct.
  • wwe84, Fussbudget, paper_aero and Howie72 took the honours this week with 4/5, back to back 4/5 for the latter two while Sypher tipped 1/5 for the second week in a row to earn a 4th spoon in 7 weeks.
  • Howie72 joins N-Bomb at the top of the standings after his hall of fame effort, they have a 2 point lead over George95 and FussBudget in joint 3rd place. With his "gimme" point ozzz2002 moves close to Sypher who is just above him but remains 1 point behind. These 2 are in danger of being cast adrift at the bottom though still in touching distance with illiniman14 and wwe84.
