Football: Postecoglou’s tactical decisions leading to risky outcomes

When Las Palmas faced Real Madrid in September 2016, a significant point about football resurfaced.

In charge of Las Palmas at the time, chess enthusiast Quique Setién said this about Luka Modrić: “Modrić would be the queen [on the chess board] because he’s so versatile and understands all the little nuances of the game. He controls the midfield and dominates all possible situations and has the mobility of a chess queen.”

Why even $346m is not enough to prevent civil war in Australian football | Shaun Mooney

As expansion plans wither and the administrators dither, the clubs are aiming to wrest control of the A-League in a battle for the game’s soul

Despite a dream grand final that delivered drama aplenty, the A-League is about to enter into another tumultuous off-season as club owners fight to wrest control of the competition away from Football Federation Australia. With FFA so far failing to reach its broadcast deal target by over $20m a year, and the expansion of the A-League coming to a grinding halt, the owners have lost faith in an administration that is slow to make decisions and hides behind consultants’ reports.

For more than two years, FFA has been building towards the next phase of growth by focusing its efforts on increasing revenue via its broadcast deals and sponsorship. Plans were written, it launched a marketing campaign aimed at converting participants into fans of the A-League and arguably the greatest player in Socceroos history, Tim Cahill, was brought home on a multi-million dollar deal to bring much needed buzz to a competition many felt had become stale.

Tim Cahill relishing underdog status: ‘I’ve been written off my whole life’

  • ‘I like it like this. We know what’s on the line,’ says Melbourne City star
  • City face Perth Glory in Sunday night’s A-League elimination final

Tim Cahill has dared A-League opponents to write off Melbourne City for the title, but the odds are stacked against City, who face Perth on Sunday night in an elimination final for a place in the final four.

Tim Cahill magic earns Melbourne City A-League win over Adelaide

  • Melbourne City 1-0 Adelaide United at AAMI Park
  • Tim Cahill heads home stunning winner to push side close to home final

Melbourne City are within touching distance of a home A-League final after Tim Cahill’s stunning header earned them a well-deserved 1-0 win over Adelaide United. Yet again, Cahill produced the goods for City, elevating his side above above the Reds in a fiery contest on Friday night.

The veteran Socceroo arched his back perfectly to flick Nicolas Colazo’s corner over the Reds defence and inside the back post on 36 minutes. It was a goal that very few could have scored or would have even attempted, putting City in the box seat to return to AAMI Park in a fortnight’s time for just their second home final in their history.
