Thought I'd start a thread to get the A-League discussion going for the upcoming season.
(FoxSports Fantasy A-League is imminent. Might as well keep discussion for that game here as well when it arrives)

News websites to check out for all the latest A-League news:

Realised there were no prizes for Foxsports :/
And i didn't really like the prizes for official A-League, all centred around tangible prizes rather than money.
So have joined up for the Real Dream Team one to test the waters.

Pretty keen for this! All kicks off on Thursday! Don't have hugely high hopes for Glory, but I'm always keen this time of year nonetheless 8)

Stole this from the EPL thread...

Title Winner: Victory (as much as it disgusts me to say)
Bottom Place: Newcastle Jets (just cant get their shower together)
2015/16 Overachievers: Wellington (always seem to do better than everyone expects)
2015/16 Underachievers: Melbourne City (sorry MCFC fans!)
Signing of the Season:
Predicted Golden Boot winner (highest goalscorer):
Predicted Golden Glove winner (GK with most clean sheets):
Predicted Player of the Year: O.Bozanic (I overrate so much haha)
Predicted Breakout Player: O.Bozanic I guess haha

Go, go, go lads!

Also, tipping a 2-2 draw in the first match of the season ;)

P.S looked at rdt wow they barely have prizes as well fantasy soccer seems to be going backwards

They have had prizes every other year Luigi maybe they think more people will play with no prizes  ::) seriously thinking about giving it a miss this year , i will look at RDT now mate  ;)

Title Winner: Melbourne Victory (balancing AFC only concern)
Bottom Place: Central Coast Mariners (Jets and Roar won't do that much better)
2015/16 Overachievers: Western Sydney Wanderers (I like Popovic and the squad isn't bad. will recover from last season)
2015/16 Underachievers: Adelaide United (Though i rate them, there is every chance they could flop)
Signing of the Season: Vukovic to Victory will give them some much needed reassurance down back.
Golden Boot winner: Besart Berisha (hard to go past him)
Golden Glove winner: Janjetovic (usually pretty solid)
Predicted Player of the Year: Mooy (will shine bright like a diamond. not a doubt in the world)
Predicted Breakout Player: Jimmy Jeggo (has a solid A-League foundation and may have just settled comfortably in to the Adelaide side)

Will post rest of the predictions later on!

How good a quality was that Roar v WS match Thursday? Really had me excited for the new season! (Meant to post Thursday but got distracted)

United v Victory never got going but it was still high class football which is the main thing imo ;)

In short, the AU to go undefeated all year!

A lot of errors in the WSW v Roar game, but there was a lot of quality too from the Roar.

The CCM v Glory match though. Mariners played surprisingly well!
