A-League 2011/12 – Round 27 – The End

BRISBANE ROAR 2 GOLD COAST UNITED 1 Brisbane Roar won their last game of the season against Gold Coast United who played what could possibly be their last game in the A-League.  But it wasn’t enough.  Earlier in the day Central Coast Mariners beat the Phoenix by the same scoreline to secure the Premiere’s Plate.  Well done to them. It’s ...

Asian Champions League 2012: Brisbane Roar vs Beijing Guoan

Last year during the Asian Cup, I blogged about my incredulity at the sheer crappiness of India and China as footballing nations.  I argued that although both countries had a large portion of their population living in poverty who wouldn’t have the opportunities to develop in football, they both still have around 50-100 million people living in middle to upper ...

NEWCASTLE JETS 1 BRISBANE ROAR 2 And so it has come to this.  The Roar beat Newcastle in a topsy turvey 2-1 encounter in which the men in Orange missed one penalty, hit the post three times and threw away a lead before finally squeaking home with a win to ensure that the Premiere’s Plate for the A-League season of ...

A-League 2011/12 – Round 25 – Survive

The Brisbane Roar drew at home 1-1 to 9th placed Adelaide United on the weekend.  Meanwhile the Central Coast Mariners lost 1-0 to Perth so with 2 games remaining, they hold a slender 2 point lead at the top of the table. But thats not important right now. Much more interesting is Roar striker Besart Berisha honouring his promise to ...

Asian Champions League 2011/12 – Brisbane Roar vs FC Tokyo

On March 5th the Brisbane Roar played their first ever game of Asian Champions League football.  Australia clubs have generally struggled in the league except for one memorable run from Adelaide United who made the finals in 2008.  It was an exciting prospect to see how the Roar would go against Asia’s best, particularly if they could replicate the sort ...

A-League 2011/12 – Round 24 – Mo’ Hamed Mo’ Problems

For a team that we made short work of last season, the Melbourne Heart have well and truly proven to be our jinx this season.  We were unable to beat them in three outings.  Let’s just hope we don’t meet them at any stage during Finals Football. It started promisingly enough.  The Roar continued their solid form that saw them ...

A-League 2011/12 – Round 21 – Momentum

Brisbane Roar travelled to Wellington on Sunday for a battle between second and third.  The Phoenix shot to second place in the table after a club-record run of form where they won three away games on the trot.  As with the previous two encounters between these sides, Ricky Herbet opted to sit very deep in defence and play on the ...

A-League 2011/12 – Round 20 – Finally…

After I bitched last week about the Roar’s indifferent mid-season form which saw them concede the opening goal in ten out of eleven games, there finally came some sweet relief in Round Twenty of the competition when the side finally came together and played ninety minutes of football that showed us what they are capable of.  The unlucky opponents?  The ...
